Hart’s Hope * Orson Scott Card book review

Having read Enchantment, I figured another fairy tale book from Orson Scott Card would prove a good and entertaining read. I am quite happy to tell you that yes, yes it was. Built in the style of German fairy tales, the story line contains some PG13 content and sometimes some PG15 content. It’s not forContinue reading “Hart’s Hope * Orson Scott Card book review”

Stephen King * Eyes of the Dragon Book Review

Beauty’s Punishment * Anne Rice

The claiming of the sleeping beauty was the first book of this sex-filled trilogy and I must say, when it comes to BDSM and really explicit sex scenes, Anne Rice is way better than E.L. James with her 50 Shades of Wayyy no. Writing under a pseudonym (A. N. Roquelaure), Anne Rice went through andContinue reading “Beauty’s Punishment * Anne Rice”
