I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.


Forbidden - Jana Oliver Holy cow! This series is really getting revved up! I haven't been reading too much PNR/UF books lately, but this is definitely staying on my must watch list for series. Riley just gets my attention and doesn't let go. She faces so many hardships that I can't help but root for her.

I have to say, the ending was shocking. And the scene close to the ending. You'll know the two I speak of if you read it. It makes me kick myself for not waiting for the third book to be out because now I'm dying to get my hands on the next... which I have to wait for. *Insert crying scene here* But the build up for the next novel was brilliantly done and leaves all of us guessing as to what will happen next.
Normally, I'm not a fan of cliffhangers. Mostly, I hate them. But this one left me on edge and eager for more without wanting to toss my book in the fireplace.

I love that so much happens in this book but nothing feels like it's too much or out of place. Things just don't get better for Riley and I'm glad to see unsuspected support for her from people I never would have thought would give it and for the vulnerable side we get a peek at.

I definitely recommend this series. It kicks butt and doesn't let up at all!
