Review: Moon Called – Mercy Thompson #1 by Patricia Briggs

71811Mercedes “Mercy” Thompson is a talented Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri-Cities area of Washington. She also happens to be a walker, a magical being with the power to shift into a coyote at will. Mercy’s next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she’s fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night.

Favourite book?


This one hit all the marks with the writing, story building, characters. It had it all and I believe will stick with me for a very long time in many ways.

Least Favourite?


This series, I feel like I always expected more than it could give, while this book was by far better than the first, still isย not my go-to for recommendations.

Currently Reading:

(This one is taking a funny hit because I took some off that I was reading beforehand)

July to-reads:

Also a secret project by Megan Crewe will be read during this time as well.


It’s summer and goals are rather overrated for me at the moment.
First and foremost though, I want my blog to grow and flourish as well as my writing. That’s always a given for me I suppose. I’m still really excited about the MyTrendingStories opportunity and can’t wait to see where that will take me. Mostly though, I just want to sit back, relax and enjoy my summer like a teenager should.

That’s all for now, once again thanks to all the wonderful readers and followers that stick by me here, I love and appreciate you all. Can’t wait to come back to this community after being off in exam world.

Until next time, Shayla
