TTT #118 – Ten Reasons I Won’t Read a Book

TTT #118 – Ten Reasons I Won’t Read a Book

July 25, 2017 Features 1

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! While the lovely bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish have this meme on hiatus, I decided I would go back and do a few of the topics I missed during my own Spring hiatus. One of those topics was “Ten Things that will make you… Read more »

Blog Tour: No Good Deed by Kara Connolly

Blog Tour: No Good Deed by Kara Connolly

July 24, 2017 Reviews 0

No Good Deeds by is a fresh take on the Robin Hood legend involving a little time travel. For me, retellings are a recent love. I’ve not always been a fan, but I really enjoyed this one. And Robin Hood, well he’s one of my favorites. I love the myth and legend surrounding this outlaw who stole from the rich to give to the poor. It’s nice to think the man existed at some point in the Middle Ages, fighting the people who were drunk on power to save the little guy. Robin Hood is iconic, which is why I thought… Read more »

Review: Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine

Review: Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine

July 14, 2017 Reviews 2

series just keeps getting better and better!! Ash and Quill by is the third book in this series and so far my favorite installment. The action and suspense are tripled in this book compared to the rest of the series. Please note that if you have not read the first two books, there will be minor spoilers to the previous books in this review. Read at your own risk! Ash and Quill picks up right where Paper and Fire left off. Jess and his friends along with Scholar Wolfe and Captain Santi have survived the Welsh invasion of London only to escape to Philadelphia, a burner-controlled city. Obviously… Read more »

Review: Perfectly Oblivious by Robin Daniels

Review: Perfectly Oblivious by Robin Daniels

July 13, 2017 Reviews 4

I first came across Perfectly Oblivious by on a Facebook fan page for Kelly Oram. At the time I didn’t realize they were sisters, but now it makes perfect sense. Friends if you love and are obsessed with Kelly as I am (she’s about the only YA contemporary I’ll read), then you are in for a treat. Perfectly Oblivious by is a sweet story about two best friends falling in love. Told in dual POV, the reader knows all creating some dang fine irony as we read the characters’ struggles. Bianca Barnes is who I wanted to be growing up. Petite, athletic, the girl… Read more »

Children’s Corner: Beating Summer Boredom

July 11, 2017 Children's Corner, Features 1

Our summer break is halfway over and it makes me so sad. Little man will be returning to school in 5 weeks and I’m just not ready to have a first grader 😫 He’s excited though so I’m happy about that. My little man typically doesn’t like change but if he’s ready than I guess I have to be too. Currently Reading Up Next Beating Summertime Boredom Now that we are halfway through summer, boredom is starting to set in. I feel lucky that it’s taken half the summer as I’ve seen several friends posting that their kids were bored well… Read more »

Review: The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

Review: The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

July 10, 2017 Reviews 0

So I wasn’t overly impressed with The Hundredth Queen by like I thought I’d be. I thought I’d be fangirling over this book, writing a really enthusiastic review. But instead I feel meh about it. The Hundredth Queen had a lot of potential. It’s a high fantasy with elements of romance and rebellion. Sounds promising right? But in reality it was like all the other YA fantasy books out there where an unskilled, untrained young girl becomes the unwilling face of the rebellion…oh and she falls in love with the first boy she sees (literally!). The orphaned Kalinda was raised by a Sisterhood (similar… Read more »

Weekend Reads #93 – An ACOTAR binge and Fangirl review

Happy Saturday y’all! I don’t know about you but my days have been all messed up this week with the holiday being on a Tuesday. All morning I’ve thought it was Friday 🤦🏼‍♀️ But I digress. I’ve made no secret that this Spring was a massive reading slump for me. Towards the end of May I was getting desperate. NOTHING I read interested me and I do mean nothing. I DNFed several books though for once I do plan to go back and try them again as I don’t feel that my frame of mind gave them a good assessment. So… Read more »
