#2016HW Gods of the Dead by Tracey Ward

#2016HW Gods of the Dead by Tracey Ward

July 26, 2016 Reviews 0

Gods of the Dead by Tracey Ward is the first book in a spin-off to her popular series Quarantined and Survival. This book follows Vin and Trent from the Survival series and bridges the time between the start of the zombie apocalypse and how they wound up in Seattle. Vin and Trent were two of my favorite side characters to the series so I was really excited when I realized they were getting their own book, which has now turned into a 3-book series 😀 Vin is one of those characters you’ll either love or hate. If you’ve read the Survival… Read more »

Now that we are home we have grandparents who couldn’t wait to get… Read more »

Guest Post: What’s Your Five (Mystery/True Crime)

July 21, 2016 Features 0

A few years ago I was asked by a friend of mine “What five books (excluding the Bible) do you think everyone should read?” I decided to give the question a spin and a few of my blogging buddies are giving me their five reads in their favorite genres. Up today is Becca @ The Bookkeeper’s Apprentice and her favorite genre Mystery/True Crime. Thank you to Lillian for inviting me to do a guest post on her wonderful blog! When Lillian told us about the idea of “my five”, where you pick five books you think everyone should read, I immediately… Read more »

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 anxiously waiting on Frost by . Just the cover gives me chills!! This book is set in the future where robots (and from the blurb what sounds like) cannibals roam the earth. Frost’s only companion is her dead father’s consciousness which lives inside a failing robot. I’m giddy just thinking about this book. I love dystopians and I’m a new fan to fairy tale retellings, combine the two and I’m sold 😀 What are you not-so-patiently… Read more »

Top Ten Tuesday #87 – Outside the US

July 19, 2016 Features 6
