Waiting on Wednesday - Kingdom of Ash

So if you've been here for a while you'll know that I'm a Sarah J Maas super-fan, I loved both her series to death! Well.... until Catwoman, I'd loved every book she'd put out. I'm hoping that was a one time thing and this series continues like her other books and doesn't move towards the way of Catwoman.  Expected publication: October 23rd 2018 Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas’s #1 New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series draws to an epic, unforgettable conclusion. Aelin Galathynius’s journey from slave to king’s assassin to the queen of a once-great kingdom reaches its heart-rending finale as war erupts across her world. . . Aelin has risked everything to save her people―but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. Aware that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, though her resolve begins to unravel with each pa

Top Ten Tuesday - Books On My Fall 2018 TBR

This meme is now hosted over at That Artsy Reader Girl So I don't really do TBRs as I'm a mood reader, I want to read what I what when I want, if I'm forcing myself to follow a list.... then I'm more likely not to like what I'm reading, if that makes any sense. Anyway, I'm going to list ten books that I want to read soon.  10) The Chase  Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there’s no logical reason why I’m so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don’t usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I’m flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn’t help that he’s buddy-buddy with my brother. And that his best friend has a crush on me. And that I just moved in with them. Oh, did I not mention we’re roommates? I suppose it doesn’t matter. Fitzy has made it clear he’s not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I’m not the

Music Monday - Honestly / Honestly Encore

This meme is hosted over at Always Me I don't usually listen to Youtubers music.... because honestly, most of it sucks. This was something that surprised me when it popped up on Pandora. I found I really liked it.

Escape into this captivating Cinderella romance! Expected publication: October 16th 2018 Book Breakdown  Okay, something I just want to say that, it's really me nit picking but it bothers me deeply. Through this whole novel almost... it's known that the main character is curvy.... the way some character characters go on about her it's more like she's overweight... does that cover model even look curvy at all? Not not me, she's just as thin as any other model o

A Discovery of Witches - Mini Review

Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library. Diana has stumbled upon a coveted treasure lost for centuries-and she is the only creature who can break its spell.  Mini Review  So this books suffers from what I like to call 'overstuffing'. Where so much is added to this book that is unneeded. So much talk about tea and wine... it really dragged the book for me. Then there were things that didn't have enough explained about them (but I won't mention them as they are spoilers).  I heard somewhere that this book is like Twilight for adults... it kin

Paranormal Parasites - Mini ARC Review

Most people remain oblivious to the truth--there's a monstrous menagerie of supernatural entities that feed upon human victims without our knowledge. Fueling themselves with our psychic energy, high states of emotion, and our essential life-force, these dark entities attack as we sleep or even in our waking hours, terrifying and tormenting unsuspecting souls whenever and wherever they can. Join Nick Redfern as he delves deep into the long history of struggle between us and them. Learn the ways of Shadow People, supernatural seducers, poltergeists, thought-forms, tulpas, the Slenderman, Men in Black, and many other types of energy creatures. Book Breakdown  *Thanks to NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review* Quick overhaul of this book, it talks about all kinds of different 'monsters' and how they feed off of us. My favorite part were the Black Eyed Children (they're pictured on the cover), I've long since been creeped out but enthralled by them. It a

August 2018 Wrap Up!

I read seven books in August... not a lot for me but I've been busy. My daughter is back in Pre-K, I've been substitute teaching when I can find the job. Teaching is no joke! It's really hard, I feel so bad for the teachers who do this. I work three days and my anxiety is on overload.  Anyway, to the books, that's why we are here.   1) The Score ( Full Review ) He knows how to score, on and off the ice Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands. It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over Dean always gets what he wants. G
