Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event originally created and hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are all eagerly anticipating. Jill has been MIA since August of 2016. Despite this, the meme lives on….Hope you come back Jill! This week I’m not-so-patiently waiting on Ash and Quill by , the third installment of . I’ll be the first to admit that when I started reading Ink and Bone two years ago that I had a love-hate relationship with the book. I struggled reading it because it is very detailed and kinda dragged on…in the beginning. However after DNFing it… Read more »

May 3, 2017 Features 1

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 impatiently waiting on Thief’s Cunning by . This is a companion novel to the author’s debut Assassin’s Heart. I LOVED this book so much. It was one of my favorites from 2016. When I found out there was a companion novel about the little girl she rescued, I may have fangirled a bit. I cannot wait to read more from this world. The author’s twist on the classic Romeo & Juliet was perfection so I have high hopes for… Read more »

Recently I’ve been drawn to covers with… Read more »

Merry Mondays #29 – Literary Moms

Merry Mondays #29 – Literary Moms

May 1, 2017 Features, Merry Mondays 2

Merry Mondays is a monthly meme hosted here @ Mom with a Reading Problem on the first Monday of each month and every Monday in December to celebrate the holiday season year round. Each month a different topic centered around the holidays will be discussed. May is always a busy month: end of the school year, planning for Summer, birthdays and of course Mother’s Day. So this month’s topic is “Celebrating Mom! Who is your favorite literary mom?” I read a LOT of YA dystopia, and to be honest, parents are usually missing from these. They are either discussed vaguely and rarely show up in… Read more »

I may even like it more than Throne of Glass *gasps* I know, right?! If you enjoy high fantasy and faeries, I highly recommend you grab a copy of the first two books in the series and binge read before this one hits shelves. And… Read more »

Hello Again….

Hello Again….

March 30, 2017 Features 6

And here’s why (warning, apparently I had more to say then I thought when I started writing). The second week of February the server that hosts my blog went down. I was in the middle of writing posts for the week and basically lost them. Not a big deal, it happens. Then my son got sick, then I got sick. Again, not… Read more »
