Okay, I must admit that once again, I was bad, I pre-judged a book by its cover.  And that was this book.  I had been a fan of the author with her teen books, The Wake Series, and Cryer’s Cross.  But, the cover on this was just too fantasy for me.  Honestly, I am not […]

Well, I almost, but not quite made my goal of 8 books.  I didn’t finish my 8th book until yesterday, the 1st of October, so technically, it doesn’t count.  I’m kind of a stickler at times.  BUT, I did still go over what I’d set for the minimum for the challenge, 4, so I’m happy […]

As usual I have to start this by thanking both Netgalley and the publisher, Scholastic this time, for letting me read an egalley of this.  I was so excited to get this as I’d really enjoyed the first two books in the series.  Unfortunately, both of them came out, and I read both of them, […]
