Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. They’d love to share their lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists! Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is a freebie so I decided to go through the older topics and found one from 2013, prior to starting the blog that I wanted to have fun with. The topic was “Top Ten Endings That Left Me With My Mouth Hanging Open.” There… Read more »

In All My Life by is the 4th installment in the novella series, a sister series to her popular contemporary romance series Sweetwater County. As with all the books in this series, In All My Life follows two people who found themselves in Riverbend because of the bad hand life has dealt them.

Happy Saturday y’all! Today I am SO excited to share with you Caraval by . The book hits shelves at the end of the month but I couldn’t contain my excitement any longer. I devoured this book! If you enjoy fantasy and vivid imagery, you are in for a treat 😀 When I first saw Caraval on another blogger’s site, I was intrigued. When I received a copy for review, I was ecstatic! Seriously, did you take the time to read the blurb?! “A legendary game” and “dangerous intrigue” grabbed my attention. Caraval is a story about two sisters, an abusive father, and how they finally… Read more »

Review: Through Glass: The Blue by Rebecca Ethington

Review: Through Glass: The Blue by Rebecca Ethington

January 20, 2017 Reviews 0

I LOVE this series! Through Glass: The Blue by picks up right where it left off in volume 1. Having escaped her impending death and leaving an injured Bridget behind, Lex and Travis are now on their own in the darkness with nothing but the supplies on their backs and a destination that may not accept Lex. While the first book in this series is a bit slow moving, this one is the exact opposite. Packed full of action, I couldn’t set it down until I finished it. The dynamic between Lex and Travis is interesting. For Lex she is Travis’s older… Read more »

Waiting on Wednesday #87 – Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves

January 18, 2017 Features 7

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. This week I’m patiently waiting on Blood Rose Rebellion by . The book is being compared to Red Queen which I loved so that alone is enough for me to want to read this book. But then I read the full blurb….girl without powers, outcasted and becomes the unwitting leader in a rebellion. YES PLEASE!!! I love dystopians, especially when they are combined with fantasy as this one is. Can’t wait to read it! What are you not-so-patiently waiting on… Read more »

Happy New Year fellow moms and teachers! Can you believe that it is now 2017?! Me either 😀 We finished off 2016 with a bang.

I enjoyed having him home for a few weeks and now the house feels too quiet. We did crafts, we played games, and we built with Lego castles…specifically a haunted mansion and Ninjago city.

Review: Seven Black Diamonds by Melissa Marr

Review: Seven Black Diamonds by Melissa Marr

January 16, 2017 Reviews 5

Seven Black Diamonds by has been on my TBR shelf for a really long time, like embarrassingly long. When I receive a book to review, I write it down on a spreadsheet. It helps me to keep track of what books I have and when they are being released. Somehow when I received this book in 2015, it didn’t get written down. It wasn’t until I came across it on my Kindle that I realized I had it and hadn’t read it *hangs head in shame* So the first thing I did when I found it….READ IT! has been a name… Read more »
