Bitten - Book Breakdown (Review)

Elena Michaels is the world’s only female werewolf. And she’s tired of it. Tired of a life spent hiding and protecting, a life where her most important job is hunting down rogue werewolves. Tired of a world that not only accepts the worst in her–her temper, her violence–but requires it. Worst of all, she realizes she’s growing content with that life, with being that person.

So she left the Pack and returned to Toronto where she’s trying to live as a human. When the Pack leader calls asking for her help fighting a sudden uprising, she only agrees because she owes him. Once this is over, she’ll be squared with the Pack and free to live life as a human. Which is what she wants. Really.

Book Breakdown 

I've been reading more 'adult' books lately because of all the crap happening with YA and this is one I've been wanting to read for a while. I love the TV and when I found it it's based on this book. I had to grab a copy and I am glad I did! 

This book follows Elena, a werewolf, the only female werewolf, who was not bitten by choice. She doesn't like what she is now and instead tries to fight against it. Moving away from Stonehaven and into the big city. Her life in Toronto is what she thinks she wants, Philip, being the man she thinks she wants. This novel is all about Elena coming to terms with herself after a decade of being bitten. It's also got a pretty bang up plot. Mutts trying to take over the pack and the pack has to stop them. 

I love the take on werewolves in this novel. They don't change every full moon and aren't some creepy half human half wolf thing when they change. They turn into real wolves and they are so badass. I've been missing some good paranormal reads and this sure filled me with happiness to read.

I will say that the book does skip over the fighting scenes a bit... it was better in the show but that is my opinion. I love Clay in the book as much as I do in the show and Elena is still badass and I loved getting inside her head. Everything moved so fast that I would read four chapters without even thinking about it. All in all, I did enjoy this novel a lot and can't wait to get the next one in my hands!

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading!
