July 2017 Wrap Up

Books I Read It might look like I had a decent reading month with four books in this wrap up, but the first three I read mostly in June and just finished in July. The last book I devoured in just a few days in the middle of the month and then I haven’t finished anything since then! August isn’t off to the greatest start, but I’m hoping to pick […]

Spring 2017 Wrap Up

Since I’ve been completely MIA since January, I thought I would do a quick wrap up of the books I read in the spring (March-May). I didn’t read very many books this spring due to my busy schedule at the time (which put me in a major reading slump!) but that makes for a much more manageable number of books to put into a post. 🙂 In fact, most of […]

ARC Review: The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an ARC of this book when I attended YALLWest earlier this year. Thanks Simon Pulse! The synopsis sounded like an amazing combination of fantasy, historical fiction, and time travel – AND IT WAS. I always go into ARCs wearily because more often than not I DON’T actually enjoy ARCs, but this one totally blew me away. I couldn’t put it down, […]

And I Darken (The Conquerors Saga #1) by Kiersten White

I’ve been putting off writing this review because my feelings for this book are so hard to put into words. First of all, I LOVED this book. I received an ARC of this book when I attended YALLWEST earlier this year. Prior to getting the ARC, I hadn’t heard of And I Darken, and even reading the synopsis didn’t really grab me. So needless to say, this book really took […]

Ivory and Bone (Ivory and Bone #1) by Julie Eshbaugh

The Writing The writing style in this book was strange for me and I didn’t really enjoy it. The story is told from Kol’s POV and the majority of the story (except for the very beginning and end) are in 2nd person because he is telling the story to “you” – and “you” are Mya, another one of the main characters. What I found the most frustrating about this writing […]

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Wow guys – just wow! This book completely blew me away. This book was picked for a book club with my coworkers (this was our first one!). I was excited when it was picked because I love historical fiction, especially set during the WWII time period, and I’ve been meaning to read more adult books. I seriously read this book in two sittings – I went to Vegas for a […]

The Diviners (The Diviners #1) by Libba Bray

Plot and Pacing I picked this book up because I wanted to read scary, halloween-ish book (yes, I read this that long ago – I’m super behind on my reviews!) and a lot of people recommended this book for October. Unfortunately, it didn’t quench the “scary” thirst I had – I didn’t find it scary at all. While it IS a murder mystery with a paranormal twist, I was never […]
