Sidhe Vicious Reviews

Spoiler Free Reviews & More Book-ish Goings On :)

Saturday Soundoff


  • Mood: tired but satisfied
  • Watching: Eragon
  • Currently Reading: Bewitched & Staked

We interupt our regular reviews to bring you…  An update! LOL I spent about 9 hours yesterday doing spring cleaning – bleach the walls, ceiling and everything in-between cleaning. Sadly, no reading was accomplished.

Anybody who is going to be in or around the Edmonton, Alberta, Canada area on May 17th, Kelley Armstrong, author of The Otherworld series, (Bitten, Broken, Stolen),  will be doing a signing at the west-end Chapters at 2pm. I’m excited to get to meet her and have my books signed. It’s her first time out here, so lets try to make it a great event for her.

Books I’ve aquired this week include: The Mammoth Book Of Vampire Stories By Women – Anthology, Demon Night – Meljean Brook, After Dark – Jayne Castle, Carried Away – Sue Civil Brown, My Enchanted Enemy – Tracey Fobes, Dark Moon – Lori Handeland, Dark Seduction – Kathleen Korbel, The Phantom Of The Bathtub – Eugina Riley, The Sharing Knife – Beguilement – Lois McMaster Bujold, If His Kiss Is Wicked – Jo Goodman, Beast Of Desire – Lisa Renee Jones, Mind Games – Merline Lovelace, Last Wolf Standing – Rhyannon Byrd, and Last Wolf Hunting – Rhyannon Byrd. Not a bad haul if I do say so myself!

So what’s everybody reading this week? Leave a comment and let me know!

I won an ebook from Lynda the other week. I also won a signed copy of Poison Study last week. I obviously have good book karma lately…maybe it is the amount of money I am spending on them 😉

Book Buying Frenzy


  • Mood: happy
  • Watching: ok, I’ll admit it, my TV is always on!
  • Location: On my way out.

I went a little crazy yesterday and ordered:

     

And then I went to the store and bought:

     

Yes, I went on a book shopping frenzy, lol. Bad, bad me. Can you see me feeling guilty…NOT!   I’m pretty excited to read them, although I still have to wait for the first four to get here.

I had an idea, I’m wondering if some of you might have a question you’d like me to ask author of A Rush Of Wings, Adrian Phoenix? If you have one, then ask away in a comment or you can email me, and I’ll see what I can do to work it into my up-coming interview with her. 

I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!

I ordered ‘Staked’ yesterday! It looks good.

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of Happy Hour of the Damned! I am looking forward to see how you like it.

Howling at the Moon & Night Life rock!

House of Cards was good but not as good as Heart of Stone.

I will have to check the other books out…

Books Of The Week – So Far


  • Mood:
  • Currently Reading: Personal Demons
  • Location: chillin in front of the tube

I went and picked up issue #9 of Anita Blake Guilty Pleasures comic. I’m loving the series of comics, and hope they continue to make more comics from the rest of Laurell K. Hamilton’s books.

I also picked up Nalini Singh’s – Caressed By Ice, Rebel Fay – Barb & JC Hendee, Shadows On the Hill – Jackie Cassada, Dusk – Susan Gates, The Black Tatoo – Sam Enthoven, The 30 Minute Writer – Writers Digest Books, Building A Website For Dummies, and my PC Cast & Kristin Cast – Chosen arrived in the mail. A great haul again and it’s only Wednesday!  

As you may have noticed, I have a random showing of books in my library at the top. It’s actually mostly books on my wishlist, and a few that I own, but if you click the “my library” link, you can see the whole list. I apologize for the huge big “header” here on my blog, but I can’t seem to find a way to get html anywhere else on here.

You are in a book buying frenzy. I don’t plan on picking up anymore books until Armstrong’s Personal Demon comes out on the 25th. Woot! Can’t wait!

Ha ha, I am always in a book buying frenzy! It’s my crack, it all started with those Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden books when I was a wee little nipper…

I am constantly in a pre-ordering book frenzy. I am trying not to buy any other books because I am involved in book swaps over on Bookobsessed.com and don’t want to end up with lots of doubles!

I got my email saying ‘Personal Demon’ by Kelley Armstrong has already been sent to me…Now I just have to wait for it to arrive!!! Stupid Easter holidays!

LOL, I hear that! I’m always grumpy about holiday’s that delay my mail (books), ha ha!
Doesn’t it end up costing quite a bit to mail your books all over for the swapping?

Crazy Week


  • Mood:
  • Currently Reading: One Bite Stand
  • Location: Under my blankets

I’m having a crazy-busy last week and a half. I did, however, aquire alot of good books! =) I do actually buy alot of books new, but I also buy alot of second hand books from the Goodwill store (my little way of supporting a charity while indulging in my book addiction), second-hand bookstores, and my good friend M, (you know who you are & I love ya!), sends me her copies of books after she’s read them. If any authors are reading this, I apologize, because I know you don’t make money on second hand sales, but there’s no way I could afford to buy all new copies of every book I want. I do spend way more every month on books than most, so I do what I can to support writers and my reading habits.

Books I aquired this week include: The Gathering Dark by Christopher Golden, Darkling by Yasmine Galenorn, When Darkness Comes by Alexandra Ivy, Dragon Heat by Allyson James, Charmed I’m Sure by Liz Ireland, The Stone Maiden by Susan King, Heart Mate by Robin D. Owens, Judgement In Death by J.D. Robb, The Twilight Lord by Bertrice Small, Mysteria an Anthology, My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon an Anthology, Midnight Awakening by Lara Adrian, The Moon Stone by Claire Cross, Dream Of Me by Lisa Cach and One Bite Stand by Nina Bangs. 

Woot! What a haul! I think my TBR pile is now actually bigger than my Keeper pile. This makes me ridiculously happy.  I finished reading Unshapely Things and will be posting my review in the next day or two. I’m now reading Nina Bangs’ One Bite Stand.
