I read fast. Like, super-fast. A book or two a day fast (when I have time, that is. It’s been greatly reduced lately). Because of that superpower, I’m always behind on my reviews, with no chance of ever catching up… except if I do a bunch of short reviews at a time and, taking inspiration from Twitter, do it in just 140 characters. Now, I’m not the first or only one to do this: check out Karen @ For What It’s Worth’s Short and Tweet reviews and TweetViews run by three librarians.
Had to double up on my Tweet-Short Reviews this week since I fell even further behind! At this rate, I’ll never-ever-ever catch up. *sigh*

I do love this series. Makes me miss Chicago (sans vamps, that is). Ethan’s playing politics, Merit’s working hard to keep it all contained, as usual. And eating, of course.

If I’m ever in trouble (or hungry), I hope Gin’s around. Girl protects what’s hers and feeds up her people right. V. intrigued by new BigBad threat.

Enjoyed the Baba Yaga myth update (though I miss the hut w/ chicken legs!). Yay for dragon dog! Wish it didn’t feel like author had environmental message to get across.

Mad love for this serial-cum-novel. Zenobia is so feisty and independent; “Kraken King” Ariq turns out to be perfect man for her. Steampunk lurve, FTW!

Cheesy, fun goodness in this series. Biker witch grannies, griffin relatives, an ancient cult complete with demon…this calls for a demon slayer!

A cute story of Liam, fast-growing dragon son of Dragos and Pia, a natural protector who must learn self control. (But this cover is so disconcerting!)
