So this info is for the UK release only. Sadly I didn’t find anything about a US release, though I didn’t spend too much time looking, to be honest…so if you find out anything, let me know! :D The first thing that caught my attention is the gorgeous cover! I love how the letters are […]
I don’t think I’ve ever read a series that started out lukewarm for me then have me completely freaking out about it’s amazing sequel. Nope, I’m sure there hasn’t been. Entice took the story to a whole new level. Now that Violet is settling into her powers and no longer under the influence of Phoenix, […]
This is a great continuation of what happened after the end of Wolfsbane. Ansel AND Ren…my heart breaks for them. :( The emotions are so freaking palpable!! This novella is worth every penny. HOLY CRAP!! THE ENDING!! For all of you who, like me, DIED A LITTLE INSIDE because of the […]
I am always super excited to learn what songs inspire these awesome authors while writing their books, so I asked Lish for her playlist and she delivered such a fun, eclectic mix! Check it out below! As many of you might know, the chapter titles from both Hold Me Closer, Necromancer and now Necromancing the […]
Embrace is definitely a different take on angels and grigori lore. But there were more things I found irritating than things I liked. For one, our main character, Violet, acted really irrational most of the book. She started out really likeable but certain things happened that ended up making her, at times, completely annoying. DO […]
Why aren’t there more books today set in the 80s?! This needs to be a thing! “Poignant and raw” – SOLD! Plus the 80s thing.
I’ve been very lucky in that I’ve been able to meet lots of book bloggers and authors I love. This mainly happened by living in a city that gets lots of great author events and by being able to attending book conventions where other bloggers congregate. Meeting people you interact with a lot, either on […]
Today is the release of the movie soundtrack for The Perks of Being a Wallflower!! The movie will be released this weekend and CANNOT wait to go see it with my bookish peeps. :D If you have Spotify, you can listen to it on your computer or on your phone!
Carnival of Souls is one of the most unique stories I’ve read this year so far. Melissa Marr has created this imaginative realm of daimons and witches, fights to the death, and so many secrets. It was amazinnnnnnnng!! One of the things I loved about Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series was how many characters and […]
I’m always up for a good contemporary romance novel that features a sexy law enforcement guy, so of course I’d be all over Sweet Talk. Plus, that cover is sexy to me. FBI Agent Grayson Kincaid did not let me down. Intelligent and fierce, with a gold, tender heart. Yup, dream guy. I was really […]
This book sounds like it’s going to take you on a twisty ride! I want it to surprise me! And maybe leave me with my mouth hanging open when I learn the shocking secret. Trailer
Today is a day of remembrance…and I wanted to share a song about the brave people who were there that day. Also…I love Yellowcard. This song makes me teary-eyed every time. ALSO! In case you didn’t know, Tune in Tuesday is currently hosted by Kate of Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands so that Ginger […]
About Life… Looking For Alaska by John Green – What are we doing with our lives?! This book made me consider a great perhaps… ;) The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky – Made me think about how many moments I chose not to participate in my own life. CHOOSE TO PARTICIPATE, PEOPLE! :) The Fault in […]
“Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love. It did not end well.” That is the epigraph. Just those three lines cemented one thing for me: it would be impossible to not devour Daughter of Smoke & Bone. The moment you turn to the first page you realize that you’re in […]
