Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally

Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally

Ah, YA contemporary, what a rocky relationship we’ve had lately. Sometimes we’re on, sometimes we’re off. Thankfully, I know I can depend on Miranda Keanneally to turn me on. Wait, that sounds wrong. Anyway, you know what I mean. I know that I’m going to have a good time when I read one of her […]

And I Darken by Kiersten White

And I Darken by Kiersten White

Yes! Yes, yes, so much yes! And I Darken rocked my socks off. I love history. Once I start researching and learning about a certain historical figure, time period, or event, I go at it hard. That’s how I am with pretty much any subject. I was only vaguely familiar with Vlad the Impaler, just […]

Summer Lovin’ Update 2016

Summer Lovin’ Update 2016

Hey, hey, hey! So I’m back. Partially. I thought I’d just give an update about what’s going on around here – off & on the blog. First of all, thank you to all for the supportive comments and positive thoughts for my uncle. Good news is, he is much, much better and on the road […]

And I’m Off …

And I’m Off …

I love the summer! In my mind, June 1st marks the official start of summer. We’ve already been in the triple digits here, so hello heat! I always take a break from the blog in the summer that usually coincides with going on vacation. This year I started the break a little early because a […]

Sunday Post #178 (6/5/16) – Hello June

Sunday Post #178 (6/5/16) – Hello June

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. June did not enter on a good note. It’s been a trying week, so I’ve been flaky when it comes to blogging. We’ve had an incident in the family, and things aren’t looking good. So I probably won’t be around much for awhile. Sitting around […]

With Malice by Eileen Cook

With Malice by Eileen Cook

Color me impressed! More often than not, I’m disappointed when it comes to YA mystery, so I rarely even try anymore. However, I loved the previous Eileen Cook book I read, so decided to give With Malice a try. I’m glad I did, because I had a great time with it! Betrayal, deceit, speculation, it’s […]

The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin

The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin

Oh man, The City of Mirrors left me feeling completely humbled and awed. I was a complete blubbering mess while reading the last section; it was like this overload of emotions. Bittersweet doesn’t even begin to describe it. I would have never guessed how huge of an impact this trilogy would have on me when […]

Sunday Post #176 (5/22/16) – #Lame

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. What an uneventful week. Just how I like it. It was so nice this week with some days in the 90s, so I tried to be outside any chance I got. I read two books for #CleanSweepARC Challenge – 7 total so far. I totally […]
