Top Ten Tuesday #89 – Lost Books on the TBR Shelf

Top Ten Tuesday #89 – Lost Books on the TBR Shelf

August 23, 2016 Features 5

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! This week’s topic is “Ten Books That Have Been On Your Shelf (Or TBR) From Before You Started Blogging That You STILL Haven’t Read Yet.” I started blogging about 2.5 years ago, and when I started I had a large TBR. Since then it’s only grown with no end… Read more »

Weekend Reads #77 – The Royals Series by Erin Watt

Weekend Reads #77 – The Royals Series by Erin Watt

August 20, 2016 Reviews 2

At the end of July, I realized I was in a serious reading slump. Between moving and little man’s impending start to school, I had zero drive to read. A group read with some fabulous ladies changed that. We read the first two books in series. Being in the YA contemporary genre, The Royals is as different from my normal read as night is from day. In fact, it contains everything I usually dislike in a YA contemporary novel. Maybe because it was so different from my normal fantasy/sci-fi reads (I honestly don’t know) but I LOVED the series so far and… Read more »

A Mortal Song by is an impressive tale that blends Japanese mythology with that of the urban world. Sora is the daughter of the kami rulers at Mt. Fuji. She’s been sheltered, loved and immersed in their beliefs. When a demon with an army of ghosts overruns the palace on Sora’s 17th birthday, she escapes with her best friend and loyal guard Takeo, but as she leaves Mt. Fuji behind her powers dissipate and she finds out the world she loves is not the world she belongs to. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I’ve always enjoyed a good urban fantasy, but… Read more »

July’s #2016HW: Defy by Sara B. Larson and City of Glass by Cassandra Clare

August 18, 2016 Reviews 0

July was an extremely busy month for me and if you’re a follower you know I’ve been a little absent the first of August as well. So I’m playing catch up 😉 In July, I did read both of my #2016HW books: Defy by Sara B. Larson and City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. I really enjoyed them. In fact, they helped get me out of my slump. Defy by Sara B. Larson was more than I expected and everything I could have asked for! I love high fantasy and this particular book is aimed at Young Adults AND it is actually appropriate for that… Read more »

Review: Spearwood Book 2 by A.S. Oren

Review: Spearwood Book 2 by A.S. Oren

August 17, 2016 Reviews 0

I really, really wanted to like Spearwood Book 2 by but it was just okay for me. I LOVED the original series, and when the author decided to revamp and rebrand it, I was excited. However it really isn’t anything like the original, which to be fair the author warned us it wouldn’t be. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still good, just not my typical read. It’s been four years since the events of Book 1.5, and Avalon and the boys are at Edgar’s teaching in the camp they grew up in. Avalon is thriving, she’s graduated from Spearwood Academy and will be returning… Read more »
