Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  This week I’ve chosen a book that is a new series by an author that I really enjoy. It’s one I tried to get an e-galley on Edelweiss from, but was turned down.  🙁 […]

First I will say thanks to Random House books for Young Readers and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  This was a good book about a young person in what would most likely be called a cult situation.  In a way reminded me of the book The Chosen One by […]

Now I know I’m way behind in just now reading this book, since it came out two years ago.  But I just finally got a copy with a gift card I won to use at Amazon, well, earlier this year I got it.  And I just finally got around to reading it, and once again, […]

Reading Road Trip: Washington

I joined into the Reading Road Trip on Day 1, and here I am again, almost at the very end.  This time I get another state that is a favorite, and it is because one of my favorite series takes place here, Twilight.  But that’s of course not all that is cool about Washington.  While […]

First I have to say thanks to Random House and Delacorte Press for allowing me to get an e-galley of this to review from Edelweiss.  I loved the first book in this series, The Gathering Storm,  that I got as an e-galley from Netgalley.  And then I never saw a chance to get the 2nd […]

So, it’s been awhile since I read the first book in the series, The Gathering Storm, as an e-galley from Netgalley.  But when I began this sequel, I was able to pretty much remember what had happened, and the way that the story itself kind of “reviewed” past events was seamless and only enhanced the […]

I am not really sure how to answer the question for the Top 10 Tuesday this week, and I’m  not quite finished with the book I’m reading in order to post a review today.  So, since my goal was to post every day this summer, I’m going to join into a new meme, Teaser Tuesday. […]
