Wow, what a sequel.  The ending of the first book, Unwind, kind of left off at a hanging point, but at the time I believe it was still a stand alone book.  When I found out there was going to be a sequel I was very excited!  And not just a sequel, it is going […]

Attention, there will be a few spoilers if you haven’t read the first book yet!!  So read on with caution. Once again I am thanking Netgalley, as well as Disney for letting me read the e-galley of this book.  I really like the publishers that let all the books in the series be available on […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  I haven’t participated since last October!  Wow!  But then the last few months have been pretty busy.  The book I’ve chosen this week is a sequel to a book that I can’t believe took me […]

I got this as an Advanced Reader’s Edition through Shelf Awareness from an imprint of MacMillan, Feiwel and Friends.  And I’m ashamed to admit, that once again, I was behind on my reading, and just now got to it, almost 3 months after it came out.  It was a good story, and really a pretty […]

I got this title from Netgalley, I believe right before they changed?  Or maybe right after they changed their site and I began having issues.  I can’t find it on there anymore, so I have no idea how to share my review or who the publisher is that I would share it with.  I believe […]

I am a huge, huge, HUGE fan of Maggie Stiefvater.  And really, I need to just go read all of her books whether they sound like something I’d like right off the bat or not.  This book is proof that whatever the synopsis might say, her stories are way more than what they say they […]

So this is the 2nd “book” in the Transcend Time series by Michelle Madow.  I wrote in my review of the first one about getting to meet the author last year at BEA, so I won’t bore you about that again.  The reason I say book in quotation marks is because it is really just […]

My Top Books of 2012

I normally don’t like to post more than once a day.  But today is kind of devoted to reading, and therefore blogging as well I guess!  I thought about doing one of the surveys I saw other blogs doing, but just didn’t want to spend that much time. Then I thought about doing my top […]
