TTT #121 – Top Ten Books From My 1st Year Blogging

TTT #121 – Top Ten Books From My 1st Year Blogging

September 12, 2017 Reviews 11

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 “Throwback Freebie,” so I decided that what better way to do a throwback then to look at my favorite reads from my first year blogging. I’m quickly coming up on my 4 year blogaversery and there were some great books and new-to-me… Read more »

Weekend Reads #97 – Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn

Weekend Reads #97 – Forget Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn

September 9, 2017 Reviews 1

Happy Saturday y’all! Earlier this week I started reading a new-to-me series and wound up binging the entire thing in three days. Yep, 1200 pages in three days. It was worth the no sleep 😀 I love a good sci-fi dystopia and is just that. There’s a little bit of everything in the book as well: time travel, psychic abilities, romance, and of course rebellion. I couldn’t sit them down! I highly recommend that if you enjoy sci-fi, you grab a copy of this series and prepare to binge! Please note: The following reviews are in order of book release….

Review: Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

Review: Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller

September 8, 2017 Reviews 2

Well….I finished the book and I’m still not really sure why I bothered. Mask of Shadows by was what I hoped would be a fantastic new YA fantasy series, but it fell prey to so many tropes that I’ve seen too many times. It’s like The Hunger Games and Throne of Glass had a baby…Mask of Shadows would be the product. Y’all it didn’t completely suck, but it wasn’t a great read, at least not for me. Sallot Leon, oh Sal. Sal is the gender-fluid main character. I stress the gender-fluid part because it the character beats it death during the course of the book. I’m not… Read more »

Audio Review: The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

Audio Review: The Last One by Alexandra Oliva

September 7, 2017 Reviews 3

I struggled to finish The Last One by . I wanted to like it. I really did. The premise sounded so promising. Reality TV mixed with true life apocalypse? What’s real vs what’s done for TV? I was all in. But the book is nothing like I thought it would be. First off the blurb is a bit misleading. “Widespread destruction” needs to be replaced with “World-wide pandemic.” In the opening chapters we learn that Zoo is awakening after being really sick. She’s disoriented and trying to figure out how much time has passed and how to get to her next challenge…. Read more »

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

I have no words for Empire of Storms by . No, that’s not true. I have a lot of words for this book, but none are very flattering. I love the series! It is one of my favorite high fantasies. So I was excited that I finally got the chance to read the next installment. Now I’m wondering what the hell I just read. Everything I love about the series is still there. I love the multiple character points of view and I love the overall series arc. BUT there are so many things I disliked. First off, I felt… Read more »

Review: The Irish Getaway by Siobhan Davis

Review: The Irish Getaway by Siobhan Davis

August 31, 2017 Reviews 0

I’m not really sure how I feel about The Irish Getaway by . I was kind of excited to read it even though I’ve made no secret about my dislike for the two main characters. I thought a story set in the author’s country would be cool, but really there isn’t much about Ireland in this short story. It’s more about the party scene which seems shadier and more dangerous than the American party scene (still trying to figure that one out). Anyways….The Irish Getaway is more of a bridge, setting up the standalone novels for the rest of the Kennedy Boys, rather… Read more »

Review: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

Review: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

August 25, 2017 Reviews 1

Oh Easton ? Fallen Heir by is the fourth book in and tells Easton’s story. This story is NOT for the faint of heart. It’s a heart-breaking, gut-wrenching, can’t-sit-it-down kind of read. I didn’t realize before I started the story that Easton would/could break my heart, but oh boy! He does. Easton is my favorite Royal boy. He stole my heart with his naivety and boyish antics. He’s a contradiction on so many levels. To Ella and the readers of the original trilogy, Easton has a big heart that’s been crushed beyond repair. I’m here to tell you that this is true,… Read more »

Children’s Corner: The Eye of the North by SinĂ©ad O’Hart

Children’s Corner: The Eye of the North by SinĂ©ad O’Hart

August 21, 2017 Children's Corner, Reviews 1

School started back last week for little man. While I miss having him home, he is enjoying school and I’m enjoying my little bit of free time too 😉 We finished the summer by reading the rest of his online summer reading books AND a couple of Dr. Seuss books. Those he read by himself which was both a sad and proud moment for me. Sad because now he doesn’t want me to read to him and proud because he can do it on his own with a little help. He’s growing up way too fast! Currently Reading Up Next… Read more »

Review: Perfectly You by Robin Daniels

Review: Perfectly You by Robin Daniels

August 18, 2017 Reviews 0

Initial Thoughts Perfectly You by is as perfect as the name suggests. I loved the characters, the sweet romance, the clean-ish YA vibe. I loved it all! Ivy is a character I can get behind. I understood her completely because….well she’s me. Andy is as sweet as he is swoon-worthy. And their friends?! I loved them!!! I loved how well the secondary characters were fleshed out. It was a quick read and one I’d recommend to anyone who enjoys YA contemporary romance. A Fictional Version of Me Ivy is me. Seriously she is! Anyone who knew me in high school that… Read more »

It Happened on Love Street by is the first in her new contemporary romance series . I personally was excited to pick up the book. I love small town contemporaries! When done right, they make for a fun read with quirky, secondary characters and rich town history (even if fictional). doesn’t disappoint in this aspect. The small town feel of is what makes the book such a fun read. And then of course Rhett 😉 Pepper Knight is chasing her dream, pursuing a legal career and the only job available to her is in a small town down south…a big adjustment… Read more »
