Challenge 3: Thanks to BookandLatte for this challenge!What is your favorite horror or thriller movie based off of a book?My answer: The one that kept me up late into the night, reading, putting the book down and picking it back up was American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis.

Title: Succubus Revealed Author: Richelle Mead Publisher: Kensington Publication Date: August 2011 Genre: Adult Romantic Fantasy Series or Stand Alone: Series, Book Six, End of series Check out my archive to see reviews of book one to five!Synopsis can be found here.Review: Georgina has left her job at the bookstore to be… one of Santa’s elves? It was fun to see her out of her element, and really, she couldn’t have stayed at the bookstore after everything had happened. She’s given the job to transfer to Las Vegas, land of sin with her best friend, Bastien from book two and all of her dreams handed to her on a platter. So why does it feel so wrong? Seth is stationed in Seattle, helping with is ill sister in law and lovable family. But they can last long distance, right? And that’s not all… The last book in the series is bittersweet, fun and a little unnerving. Anxious and waiting for months for the final installment to arrive in stores (or on kindle), I found myself hesitant to begin! Why? you ask oh kind reader. Well, it’s quite simple. I didn’t want it to end. I enjoyed this series so much, I found it difficult to say goodbye to Seth, Georgina, Jerome, Carter, Hugh, Peter and the rest of the gang. It’s a book I was very much looking forward...Read More
Title: Succubus Shadows Author: Richelle Mead Publisher: Kensington Publication Date: April 2010 Genre: Adult Fantasy Series or Stand Alone: Series, Book Five Check out my archive to see the reviews on books one to four! Synopsis can be found here. Review: Georgina probably wishes she had disappearing powers. Not to give too much away, but her personal life isn’t exactly working out. After the emotional rollercoaster that was book four, Georgina is settling into her life again and trying to deal with all the sad changes and adjustments the future will bring. While she’s more of herself than she was in the last book, she’s still suffering from a broken heart. And wary of the new succubus Simone who has entered the picture, and seems to be focused on… Seth? But oh, she does in fact disappear. Georgina is kidnapped by unknown forces and trapped where no one can reach her. No one. No one?? Hmmmm….. This book was very satisfying for me. Not only do all the storylines come to a climax, but mostly because of Georgina. Her past, deepest fears, desires are all shown back to her. The people she’s hurt, saved and who she was before Seattle are used as a form of torture for Georgina. We’ve all done things in our past we’ve regretted. Thanks to her captors, Georgina gets to relive them all. Her...Read More
