ROSALINE'S ROLLS AND SCROLLS BLOG ANNOUNCEMENTX

So you might have noticed that I have been gone for more than a year, leaving this blog to gather dust in my absence.  I've never planned on a hiatus. One day I was there on my computer, happily typing away, and the next I was gone, never to be seen again...

Cover Reveal | The Cottage on Wildflower Lane by Liz Davies

Esther's life isn’t perfect (whose is?) – but she’s happy enough living in her little flat with her boyfriend, Josh. But that’s about to change. Bored out of her mind in work, she wishes that something, anything, would happen to liven her life up. Unfortunately, her wish comes true when Josh calls her from the airport to tell her he’s going to work in a bar in Spain, and she’s not invited, Esther is devastated, and her unhappiness is compounded when she discovers she can actually view the bar via a webcam link and watch him chatting up other girls...

Book Review | Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews (Kate Daniels #2)

I am convinced the writer is using some kind of magic, because there's absolutely nothing special about the Kate Daniels series. The writing, for example, is way too descriptive and definitely not my favorite style. Every time I've picked a book in the series I have complained about the writing style. And every time after three chapters or so I have been dragged into the story by a strong force that made me forget everything and I have been unable to put the book down...

Book Review | Fantasy of Flight by Kelly St. Clare (Tainted Accords #2)

It is not that often I can find an MC I absolutely approve of. Olina is strong, fun, and fierce. She never backs down from a challenge, and she has an endearing personality. Not to mention our girl can kick some serious ass. Rosaline LOVES! I also absolutely loved her Frost persona, and I really hope to see more of that badass awesomeness. The side characters, too, were all so lovable that I cannot decide

Book Review | Mine Tomorrow by Jackie Braun

Devin travels back in time to my (and her) favorite era 1940s to find out she has a husband there waiting for her. And what follows is a cute little story of their love in another time...

Book Review | The Assassin and the Empire by Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass 0.5)

his book is written to torture the heart. Every word and sentence is that much more heartbreaking because you know what's going to happen! You know how this young couple's dream of peace and love is going to end! I hate this book for what it did to my soul. And love it, because...

Book Review | Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (Throne of Glass #1)

When I first read Throne of Glass four years ago, I thought it was a very good version of a typical YA high fantasy book complete with a cool heroine, cannot-be-romance, a love triangle, some sort of competition, evil women, and a good for nothing villain! But the rest of the series turned out to be sooo much more than my initial judgement and I soon...

Book Review | Coraline by Neil Gaiman

For a children's book, I thought Coraline had some huge amount of creepiness. Not fluffy creepy, or nice creepy; it was honestly creepy. I'm not sure how I feel about it though. Sure, it was an enjoyable read, but as its the norm for me with Neil Gaiman's MCs, I did not connect with Coraline on any level whatsoever. She felt so far away to me without any real character. I was also confused as to where...

Book Review | Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews (Kate Daniels #1)

I've got to say I was on the fence about reading this book. All the hype and madness surrounding the Kate Daniels series threw me off. In my experience when an Urban Fantasy series with more than 6 books gets famous, Rosaline stays away, because they usually tend to turn her into a raging maniac. So I went into this book with very little expectations and maybe that's...

Book Review | Fantasy of Frost by Kelly St. Clare (Tainted Accords #1)

Fantasy of Frost is not super mind-blowing, but it's extremely enjoyable. I found it to be a fun and quick read. I could not put it down at all. The pace of the book is not that fast, but the mystery of the veil keeps you going. And even though this mystery is super...

Cover Reveal | Paper Cuts by L.J. Sealey

Ordinary. Mundane. Tedious.   For Charlotte Sommers those were three words she could use to describe her life to a tee since moving to London to continue with her studies and escape her obsessed ex-boyfriend. Classes, work, and sleep were three more. Her life wasn’t exciting in the slightest. It never had been.
