~*Finally*~ The Spellbinding Begins!

Psych Dance!

First off, thank you to all those who happened to stumble upon this blog all these years and subscribed in anticipation! This was one of many passion projects I wanted to get serious about, but life kept on happening. One of my resolutions of the new year was to get back into reading, writing, and reviewing! And of course finish more of my projects so I have stuff to show for it!


I’ve updated all relevant pages, but nothing’s really changed from before. I’ll be reviewing a variety of books, nearly all types of genres and age groups. There will be erotica & other adult themed reviews, so of course, please be of the appropriate age to access them. And if those aren’t your cup of tea, they will always be tagged as “type: adults only”.

I am going to be queuing up a lot of old reviews, mainly ones from GoodReads, and will do my best to intersperse with a few more recently published books. I haven’t set up quite a schedule yet for when you can expect new reviews or preview or other types of feature posts. But the sticky will be updated once I’ve figured that out!

I won’t always be presenting the most recent or up and coming <insert genre> books, but I hope you do find a gem or two among the old.

And if you’re wondering… Why SpellBounder? I love to provide a bit of the fantastical into my life, one of the main reasons I spend so much time reading and creating stories, and I thought it’d be a fun way to present my book review blog. If you have any questions,  be sure to check out the Lexicon first, or you can easily contact me. Check About if you want a sneak peak of what’s to come. Please enjoy your stay!

Anyways, thank you all for stopping by, and hopefully you’ll find some books or comics here that’ll spellbound you as much as they did me!

~* All Caught Up *~

Well, it looks like the queue has finally run out! I had meant to add during the weekend some newer book reviews (and never before seen here or on GoodReads) but alas, it was a busy weekend for me. Before the end of the week, I’ll be setting up some Reading Challenges that I plan to do for the year, and possibly finalize the themed posts, so that way they won’t seem as random as the queue was.

I’ve also added a new tag for anyone that doesn’t want to encounter any of the Adult Only type of reviews, !SFW will be on all non-adult posts so you can always use that to filter out.

I may focus on some graphic novels as they’re a bit easier to consume sometimes (and it’s been a while since I tackled THAT TBR pile haha) but I will try to keep a good mix for now.

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to reply, and thank you again for stopping by!

~Review~ Lonely Shore by Jenn Burke & Kelly Jensen

lonelyshore  Title: Lonely Shore
 Author: Jenn Burke & Kelly Jensen
 Publisher: Carina Press

 Format: EBook, ~187 pages

All they can do is live day to day…

Felix Ingesson has returned to his duties as the Chaos’s engineer with Zander Anatolius, his ex-boyfriend-turned-broken-super-soldier, at his side. Hope means something again. But there’s nothing Felix can do to battle the alien poison flowing through Zander’s veins, or his imminent mental decline. With each passing day, the side effects of Zander’s experimental training are becoming more difficult to ignore.

When the ruthless Agrius Cartel seeks their revenge—including an ambush and an attempt to kidnap the Chaos’s crew—Zander is pushed over the edge. He can no longer hide his symptoms, nor does he want to. But hurting Felix when he’s not in control of himself is Zander’s worst nightmare—when it nearly happens, he agrees to seek help. Even if that means trusting the unknown. 

As Zander places his life in alien hands, Felix appoints himself his lover’s keeper. And though he tries to be strong, he can’t ignore the fact that he might lose Zander…forever this time.
