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 eagerly waiting on Strange the Dreamer by . I’ve been excited for this book for almost a year now, since I first heard about it! I adored Daughter of Smoke and Bone so when I heard a new series was coming I added it to my TBR list and have been not-so-patiently watching it for a release date. There’s really not much known about the book. The blurb for what seemed like forever was intentionally vague,… Read more »

January 10, 2017 Features 13

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.

January 7, 2017 Reviews 0

Happy Saturday y’all and welcome to the first Weekend Reads of 2017 😀 We woke up to a little snow this morning. Not much, but brrr…it’s freezing outside which makes for perfect reading weather IMHO. Over the holidays, I decided I needed to binge read ‘s V is for Virgin series.

Friends, if you haven’t read this duology yet, do yourself a favor and binge this weekend! I honestly didn’t think I would find a book I liked… Read more »

Today I’m excited to be participating in the blog tour for ‘s Freeks. If you enjoy urban fantasy, I recommend you grab a copy to read. Keep reading for an excerpt of the book and my review. Review As my first read of 2017, Freeks by was an interesting choice. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but it isn’t my typical read. To be honest, it was the cover that drew me in. Circus/carnival stories have always fascinated me so I was curious and hopeful for this one. Freeks follows a girl in a traveling sideshow but with a twist. The people actually possess… Read more »

The first time I read A Court of Thorns and Roses by I devoured it. I read it so fast that I knew I wanted to read it again. Fast forward to now and I finally got the chance to do so.

I didn’t start reading the series until last year and devoured the first four books in quick succession. I’m ready for the next one but I’m not ready for it to end.
