My 1 Year Blogiversary!

My 1 Year Blogiversary!

  I can’t believe it’s been a year already! The time has really flown by. I’ve learned so many things, met so many awesome people, and read a lot of books I never would have stumbled across if not for having this blog. I’d like to thank each and every one of you for being here with me. And as a special thank you, there will be a giveaway for 4 ARC’s and some non-ARC’s at the bottom of this post. United States entries only, the international shipping prices looked insane. Sorry about that! I started this blog 1 year… Read more »

My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers #2) by Rachel Vincent (review)

My Soul to Save (Soul Screamers #2) by Rachel Vincent (review)

Kaylee is finally learning to control her abilities. And her powers seem to be growing, though not in the unbelievable super-power! way. She always seems to end up in the thick of trouble, mostly because she seems to have a saving people thing. If using her powers will help or save another person, she’ll do it. Even if it means she gets into huge trouble with her father, or puts herself and her friends in danger. I love Nash. I liked him in the previous book, but I liked him even more in this one. He thinks it’s a bad… Read more »

Have You Ever Wanted The Bad Guy To Win?

So mostly I root for the good guys/girls to win in books. I’m sure most of us do. But have you ever read a book where you made a better connection with, or just liked the bad guy/girl more? And so wanted them to come out on top? I don’t mean a book about an evil character where you’re supposed to be rooting for them. (So not like Maleficent in her movie.) But a book where you’re reading, and you know the main good character is going to win. But you can’t help hoping that they actually lose and the… Read more »

Fantasy Creature Friday – Redcap!

Fantasy Creature Friday – Redcap!

What is Fantasy Creature Friday? It’s a discussion where I will talk about a particular creature every week. And what book or book series I think of when that creature is mentioned. At the end of the post, you will also get to link up your own fantasy creature book reviews and discussions for others to wander through.   This weeks creature is the:   Redcap!   A Redcap is an evil murderous fairy that are said to live in ruined castles between England and Scotland. They are called Redcaps because anyone who strays into their homes are killed. They… Read more »

The Pirate Code (Hook’s Revenge #2) by Heidi Schulz (review)

The Pirate Code (Hook’s Revenge #2) by Heidi Schulz (review)

I loved the first book, but I adored this one! All the things I loved about the first book were present in this one, only more so. There were wonderful illustrations, really likeable characters, and a fantastic world. I loved Evie, everything about her. She fit perfectly with Jocelyn and Roger. I also really liked the way Tiger Lily was portrayed. We got to see a lot more of Meriweather in this book just like I’d hoped. And we finally met more of Hook’s old crew in Starkey. There were neat twists and turns in the book. I liked the… Read more »

Touched (The Marnie Baranuik Files #1) by A.J. Aalto (review)

Touched (The Marnie Baranuik Files #1) by A.J. Aalto (review)

It was interesting that to be a psychic, you had to be bonded to a vampire. If you weren’t bonded to a vampire, you weren’t a real psychic. Since those powers all came from vampires, and humans only gain them through bonding. In exchange, the human (called a DaySitter) takes care of the vampire during daylight hours when he or she cannot do so themselves. And is a companion during the vampires waking hours. They also feed the vampire, and make sure nothing can get to the vampire to harm it. Marnie does a lot of stupid things that she… Read more »

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas (review)

Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas (review)

I love the previous books in this series. But I think this one has become the new favorite. We’ve seen Celaena fresh from the slave mines. We’ve seen her fighting to become the King’s Champion. Fighting not to lose herself completely, and to save her friends. But we haven’t seen her as broken and unmasked as we do in this book. Here, she does a complete 360. From being so broken down and despairing all she wants is to die, to truly living up to the name of the book. Memories that have been alluded to in previous books, but… Read more »

What Character In Your Fandoms Would You Most Like To Meet?

I had a dream the other night, where a few of my favorite characters just appeared. I can’t remember now what happened in the dream, just that they were there. And it made me think how awesome it would be if we could actually meet some of our favorite characters. Since there’s no way I can pick just one favorite book, there is also no way I can pick just one favorite character! But for simplicity sake, I will list off the top characters that come to mind, only one per book/series. In no particular order, I would LOVE to… Read more »

White Cat (Curse Workers #1) by Holly Black (review)

White Cat (Curse Workers #1) by Holly Black (review)

“Flattery will get you everywhere, except, apparently, off a roof.”   I loved the crime boss/crime family elements worked into this book. It helped to make it different and unique. And the world building that was done around that element made total sense in the context of the book. The mysteries were well done, and I didn’t manage to guess most of them. A few I did, but a lot of them I didn’t see coming. That’s always a plus! I really enjoyed Cassel’s thought processes, and the reasons behind the things he said and did. The voice used was… Read more »

The Sixty-Eight Rooms (Sixty-Eight Rooms #1) by Marianne Malone (review)

The Sixty-Eight Rooms (Sixty-Eight Rooms #1) by Marianne Malone (review)

Time travel, magic, mystery and real world things! I really enjoyed this book. It was a neat idea, and reminded me a little bit of The Mixed Up Files Of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler. I really liked the description of the Thorne Rooms. I hadn’t heard about them before, and when I found out it was an actual exhibit, it made my list of things to see one day. The way the magic was worked into the book was fun, and while I liked it, I also wished there had been a little more to it. There were some slow… Read more »
