November is for Novellas Chall..

This is one of my favorite novellas of all that I’ve read so far this month.  Not only are we getting a look at the first book, and some of the 2nd book, from Cole’s point of view, we also get almost a whole other storyline, that I’m eager to see if it carries on […]

Cursed (Voodoo Nights #1) by L..

First I have to say thanks to Netgalley and Indie Ink Publishing for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  I was of course first drawn to it by the cover, and then the description was intriguing, there aren’t as many books about voodoo out there, so I thought it would be a different […]

This was a fun way to see some of the things that made the characters the people they are in the book.  Although I would love to have a book that tells how the country got to the state it is in.  You know, more than just the explanations we get in the books.  This […]

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected. Got a few things this week.   Checked out from the library: As I mentioned in my Ruby Red review, I needed to check out the sequel, Sapphire Blue, in order to go on to read […]

Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

I’ve wanted to read this book since  first saw it on the shelf in the bookstore where I work.  Then a while back it was on sale for like $1.99 for the e-book, and so I bought it.  Plus, I got an ARC of the 3rd book, Emerald Green, so now I had a reason […]

Reading this novella made me realize how much I need to finish this series.  It almost made me do Wishlist Wednesday instead of Waiting on Wednesday this week.  But I didn’t.  This was another good novella.  But because it had been awhile since I’d read the 2nd book, it did take me a minute to […]

Waiting on Wednesday: Savage ..

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 in this since last month, just haven’t been quite sure which book to pick, or I was waiting for a cover to be released, or I had other things to post. […]

Now there are actually several other novellas earlier in the series, many of which were free, I just need to get them onto my Nook and read them!  But this is one that is near and dear to my heart, even before I read it.  If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ve probably heard […]

I really enjoyed this novella as well as most of the others that I’ve read this month.  And it made me so ready to read #3.  Just a quick review.  We get to know Maxon for the short time up until the girls come for The Selection.  We also learn that there was kind of […]
