Today I wanted to share with you a book my son received through Citrus Lane’s mystery box. Each month they send a box full of goodies to the house. Usually it contains a few toys, a book, and something for the parents to try. This month’s book was a hit with my three year old. He absolutely loved it and so do we! Super cute and fun illustrations, plus a bonus cd with narration by the great Jim Broadbent makes this book an excellent bedtime story.

Today I wanted to share with you a book I received for free through the Amazon Prime program Kindle First. If you aren’t aware of this program, it’s pretty cool. Each month, Amazon chooses four books that will be released on the first of the next month and offers them to Prime members. You can only choose one, but still a free book is a good book to me 🙂 My choice this month was a historical fiction piece about the real life lady Livia Drusilla. Livia was the wife of Augustus Caesar and the grandmother of Cladius. Roman history… Read more »

Today I wanted to share with you a book I received through one of my Goodreads groups. I will apologize now as I may gush in the review (yes, I liked the book that much!). I personally have not read many books about the world of fairies so I don’t have anything to compare the world building of this novel. That being said, I simply loved the intricacy of the story and plot. If you enjoy mythology and the world of fairies, don’t miss out on this book! Book Demographics Fae by C.J.

Happy Friday everyone! Today’s review is book two of a novella series by Rose Wynters. I came across book one back in October and fell in love with the series! I mean really, what’s not to like?! Short, quick read about a zombie apocalypse. I’ll be the first to tell you that when I picked up book one, I really thought I’d dislike it. I’m just not a zombie fan, even the Walking Dead I just don’t care for. But the quick wit and irony of the main character caught my attention and both books I read in one sitting…. Read more »
