(A Very Late) - April Wrap Up!


April was crazy and I didn't get to read as much as I wanted but between battling colds, allergies, chest pain, some of the best news of my life, my birthday, and just all kinds of crazy stuff.... I think nine books is pretty dang good. Now, let's talk about those books, shall we?


NETGALLEY

Again, but Better
(Review
This one... it's really hyped and most everyone loves it but... well, it you want to know, just read my review. 

Journeying Between the Worlds: Walking with the Sacred Spirits Through Native American Shamanic Teachings & Practices
I loved reading this. Any time I can learn more about Native teaching, the better. 

Jaws of the Wolf
Not bad by any means but I wanted more romance. 

Panic Attack: Young Radicals in the Age of Trump
(Review Coming Soon!)
This one talks about all this political stuff from a more... center kind of view. It really told me nothing that I didn't know but I do like how it talks about the extreme left and right. Though while it talks more about the extreme left... it denounces the extreme right more. I don't want anyone attacking me so I will say that I don't agree with everything the author says and will leave it at that. 

DNF 

The Warlord's Concubine: A Fantasy Romance
I don't even want to talk about this one anymore. I talked a little about in a past 50/50 Friday and I will link to my Goodreads review because I didn't want to review it on here. 

REREAD

Captive Prince Volume 2
I love this series so much and I wanted to reread this one. 


RAYTHE REIGN

Now, what is Raythe Reign? It's this website full of of really good m/m romance serials. It's even got some awesome manga! It's not quite a normal site, you pay $9.99 a month and you get something new every single day. A new page of an epic manga or a new chapter to an awesome ongoing story. I found it last month and have been in love with it ever since. I'm not sponsored by them or anything, I just love the service. 

Devil's Ridge
(The Dark Earth Manga #1)
If you're going to read this series, make sure to buy them form her website! Amazon won't even allow one of the novels to be on their site. 


Hidden Past
(The Dark Earth Manga #2)
The series keeps getting better and better!

The Dark Champion
There is no review for this one as this is the novel version of the manga. The novel came first I believe. It just goes into more detail than the novel but it's well worth the read! I love this story so freaking much! 

FAVORITE READ OF THE MONTH

Punk 57
I really can't gush about this book enough. I couldn't put it down! I loved this baby so freaking that I had to go out and buy the paperback after reading it on Kindle Unlimited.

(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

Short Update + The Stand-In Book Review

I've been lurking around your blogs for a few hours today and trying to catch up but I doubt I will. I've just missed so much! Sorry!  Today, I'm feeling a little bit better so I thought I would update you guys, since I've not blogged any in two weeks. The posts you've seen since then are just ones that I had scheduled for a while. I'm on the hunt for an anxiety medicine and had a really bad reaction to one my doctor put me on. I'm currently on steroids for a week to help that reaction.  Also, my grandma passed away recently and I've been trying to deal with that and help my family. They are really having it rough right now and it's been killing me trying to help them.  Then there's stuff with my kiddo. So yeah, I've been gone for a bit and dealing with things. I'm really hoping to get straightened out and get back to normal because this has been a sucky time.  Onto something bookish! I did manage to finish a book before everything kinda

Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup - Review

The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of a multibillion-dollar startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end in the face of pressure and threats from the CEO and her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When Carreyrou, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions,
