My Best of the Best, Creme de la Creme Reads of 2017

My Best of the Best, Creme de la Creme Reads of 2017

This is the inevitable post of the year, when we have to go through our amazing list of wonderful reads and pick favorites.  Guys, this is the worst.  It is hard.  There are so many good books that came out this year, but there are also a lot of great books that I read that came out last year.  Or two years ago.  Or ten years ago. Rather than just feature 2017 books, I’ve chosen to drive myself crazy and feature the reads that met and exceeded expectations this year.  The ones that wrapped me up in their worlds and wouldn’t let […]

October Wrap-Up

October Wrap-Up

Well my dears, it’s here! October has packed her bags and gotten away from me again.  Every year I feel like I’m chasing the autumnal delights of this month, and I just can’t keep up with it!  It’s my favorite time of year, but it’s also one of the busiest times of year, and it just slips away.  I come out at the end panting like it’s been a marathon but the loot was well worth it!  The leaves are off the trees, the air is getting crisp… winter is just around the corner. Well this month was actually WORSE than the […]

The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones

The Hearts We Sold by Emily Lloyd-Jones

Dee Moreno is out of time. Her money is gone and her boarding school is telling her they’ll have to pull the plug on her at the end of the semester.  Dee can’t go home.  She just can’t.  And she has a really good reason.  She has an account with trust money from her grandmother, but that doesn’t mature until next year.  She’s not just out of time, she’s out of options.  Then the demon shows up. The demon will take her heart for the money.  When Dee says yes, yes doesn’t understand the truth about him.  About the world.  She […]

My Autumn TBR!

My Autumn TBR!

I’m Making a Reading Plan. Usually I’m not one to commit to books, since I’m a mood reader, but this week’s Top Ten Tuesday encouraged us all to talk about our autumn TBR, and heck… I can commit to 10 specific books over three months, right?  I mean, five of these I already know I’m going to be reading ASAP, so what’s so difficult about picking another five?  I CAN DO THIS. Thank you to the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly meme.  They always have such great prompts and I really enjoy participating! Without […]

August OwlCrate Unboxing! – SPOILERS! – Something Wicked This Way Comes!

August OwlCrate Unboxing! – SPOILERS! – Something Wicked This Way Comes!

As soon as I saw the theme for the August OwlCrate, I knew I had to have it.  “Something Wicked This Way Comes”? Sign me UP!  Then it was announced there would be TWO books in this box and my heart melted.  I was SO SO SO excited for this box to arrive, and it did not disappoint! There’s nothing quite like coming home to an OwlCrate box sitting on your front step.  On the day mine arrived, I was having a particularly bad day, so I was THRILLED to see it there.  I should also warn you, before we even […]
