ARC Review - Crystal Kingdom (The Kanin Chronicles #3)


Cast out by her kingdom and far from home, she's the Kanin people's only hope.

Bryn Aven - unjustly charged with murder and treason - is on the run. The one person who can help is her greatest enemy, the enigmatic Konstantin Black. Konstantin is her only ally against those who have taken over her kingdom and threaten to destroy everything she holds dear. But can she trust him?

As Bryn fights to clear her name, the Kanin rulers’ darkest secrets are coming to light… and now the entire troll world is on the brink of war. Will it tear Bryn from Ridley Dresden, the only guy she’s ever loved? And can she join forces with Finn Holmes and the Trylle kingdom? One thing is certain: an epic battle is underway—and when it’s complete, nothing will ever be the 

My Thoughts/Review

Expected Release Date: 08/04/2015

*I received my ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Crystal Kingdom starts right where Ice Kissed left off. Our main character (Bryan) is wanted and on the run, hiding from those who want her. Bryn thinks she's covering herself pretty good but she finds that is not the case when an old enemy shows up. After a long talk, they decide to work together and go out to gather support and if all goes well, an army from the other tribes to fight against The Queen and her followers. Will all end well? Read the book to find out.

I've heard that there is a love triangle in this book but I didn't really see it all. At one moment I could kind of see where one could've developed but Bryn was just too much in love with Ridley. So if anyone was having issues with that, it's settled.

To me, I will say there is no real happy ending and I hated that. That's why this book is rated lower than the other two. Lovable characters die and to me some of the ones that lived didn't really get a happily ever after. On a more positive note, you do get to see some of the other characters from the past series and if you've read that series that is pretty cool. I've never read it so it made no difference to me.

This was a very entertaining book I must say, lots of twists and then never knowing of the character you love is going to die sure keeps you on the edge of your seat! If you're looking for a thrill ride with some cool twists and likable characters then get this book, just seriously, be warned, don't get too attached to anyone.

Favorite Quotes

1) “So, what do you say, white rabbit?” Konstantin Black asked.

2) “Trust and love can be very dangerous things,” he said finally.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
