Stone Cold Touch - Review

Every touch has its price Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could. But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay… Author: Jennifer L Armentrout Series: The Dark Elements Number in Se

Only 6 Books

So, I got to thinking, what if I could only read six books for the rest of my life... what would I choose? So I decided to write it all down and share my thoughts and reasons for this. This was the hardest thing I've ever done in my whole life. Seriously, spinal surgery was easier than this. 1) A Court of Thorns and Roses This is still my favorite read from 2015 and I'd die to get my hands on an ACR of A Court of Mist and Fury!!! 2) Oblivion Two reasons why I chose this book: 1) It's super long (e-book version)  2) Daemon Black 3) Emerge: The Awakening This is an indie book that is freaking fabulous! It's amazing and has something for everyone in it. It's so original and I just couldn't imagine this not being on this list. Plus, it's also long which would be good if I could only read six books for the rest of my life. Short books would so not work for me. 4) Twilight The reason for this is simple. It's one of those books that just grabbed me and didn'

So I reread this book in order to prepare for Every Last Breath. I will also be putting up a review for this book soon. This cover... let's just take a moment to stare and drool over this cover.

Unhinged - Review

Alyssa Gardner has been down the rabbit hole and faced the bandersnatch. She saved the life of Jeb, the guy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly seductive Morpheus and the vindictive Queen Red. Now all she has to do is graduate high school and make it through prom so she can attend the prestigious art school in London she's always dreamed of. That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious. And it would be much simpler if the mysterious Morpheus didn’t show up for school one day to tempt her with another dangerous quest in the dark, challenging Wonderland—where she (partly) belongs. As prom and graduation creep closer, Alyssa juggles Morpheus’s unsettling presence in her real world with trying to tell Jeb the truth about a past he’s forgotten. Glimpses of Wonderland start to bleed through her art and into her world in very disturbing ways, and Morpheus warns that Queen Red won’t be far behind.

I actually am away from my family for the second year now so sadly that is one that I can't be thankful for. I can only hope it gets better next year. So for all those with your families this year, enjoy it even more for me.  Now there are a lot of things that I am thankful for and I'm going to list six things, because everyone know I'm obsessed with the number six. 1) My daughter.

The Friday 56 (6)

This weekly meme is hosted by Freda's Voice and it's simple to join in the fun! Just grab your book and turn to page 56 or 56% if you're using an eReader and post a sentence or a few. No spoilers though! "You want me to show you my magic? I'll show it to you. But not here--not--" "I have no interest in seeing you drop your magic at my feet like a sack of grain. I want to see what you can do with it, Aelin Galathynius--which currently seems like not very much at all." Celaena's stomach tightened at that cursed name. "I want to see what you will become under the right circumstances."
