Blog Tour: Invictus by Ryan Graudin

Blog Tour: Invictus by Ryan Graudin

September 28, 2017 Reviews 0

Happy Thursday y’all! Today I’m so excited to be participating in the blog tour for Invictus by . Follow the tour below and be sure to enter the tour-wide giveaway at the bottom of the post. Tour Schedule Invictus by is an amazing read about time traveling thieves. Seriously I don’t even know where to begin! Think of a cross between Doctor Who and Firefly and you have a taste of what Invictus is about. A whole cast of well-fleshed out characters, a red panda (because who doesn’t want one of those cuties?!), a heist on the Titanic while it sinks, and more make this book an unputdownable read!

Release Blitz: The Corner of Forever and Always by Lia Riley

Release Blitz: The Corner of Forever and Always by Lia Riley

September 26, 2017 Reviews 2

Review The Corner of Forever and Always by is the second book in the that follows two sisters and their journey to find themselves and love. I enjoyed this book! I’m a sucker for a small town romance and this is definitely that. Tuesday Knight is a girl from a small town who tried (and failed) to make it big in the city. Now she finds herself a little lost. Everything she dreamed of as a child is so far out of her reach now. She wanted to be a Broadway star, but her naivety and longing for love cost her… Read more »

Audio Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

Audio Review: The Killing Jar by Jennifer Bosworth

September 18, 2017 Reviews 0

Unlike anything I’ve read before, The Killing Jar by is an interesting, suspenseful read. I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf since before it came out and I happened across an audio copy of it. I highly recommend listening to the book as I couldn’t read it fast enough for my liking. The first line of the blurb is the first line of the book. If you skipped that part, go read it now. I’ll wait…..Awesome, right?! So I was hooked from the very first line. Beginning a book like that, you know as the reader that you are in… Read more »

Weekend Reads #98 – The Gender Secret by Bella Forrest

Happy Saturday y’all! Today’s book is one I read back this spring when I was having all that drama and never got a chance to share with you. I really enjoyed it too! I enjoyed it so much that I downloaded and have purchased the entire series. Viggo and Violet are two very different characters with a common goal: find out the truth. If you enjoy fast-paced dystopia, I highly recommend you read . The Gender Secret by is the second book in series and picks up about one day after the events of the first book. Viggo is in the… Read more »

Review: Feels Like the First Time by Marina Adair

Review: Feels Like the First Time by Marina Adair

Feels Like the First Time by is the second in the about a small town and second chances. I personally really enjoyed this sweet story about best friends and a pretend relationship. We all know how those end 😉 Ali was my favorite side character in Last Kiss of Summer. She’s an independent woman, tomboyish, and the complete opposite of her former cheerleader- sister. And then there’s the small fact she’s always been in love with her best friend who also happens to be her sister’s ex.  Bradley Hawk *swoon* Hawk is a former NHL player turned bar owner. He… Read more »

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

Review: Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas

September 4, 2017 Reviews 0

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 »
