Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted at Pen to Paper Blog, in which we feature a book we can’t wait to get off of our wish list and onto our shelves!  For the month of May, I’m choosing to participate, but in a little bit different way.  Each Wednesday I’m going to talk about something […]

I was lucky enough to win a copy of this from Knite Writes in the Leap Into Books Giveaway.  And I was very excited to get it right in time for the 3rd book to be coming out.  I got an e-galley of the 3rd one, The Warrior, which of course I will be reading […]

First, thanks to both Edelweiss and Razorbill for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  The premise sounded really good, as well as it definitely had a pretty neat looking cover.  While I liked the main story of the book, I had some issues with it.  But first let me tell you what […]

Last night I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of getting to go to one of these awesome events, with four really awesome authors.  I had mentioned earlier this year about getting to be a moderator, but then a couple weeks ago the publicist said that they were sending someone on tour with them […]

All I can say is that this was just a WOW book for me.  A spectacular, emotional, perfect ending to a trilogy that I’ve loved so much.  There were about 2 points in the book that I was soooo afraid it would end up being like Allegiant, definitely a good, believable ending, but not what […]

This is the book I handed out on World Book Night.  I actually hadn’t read it yet, so I kept one of those copies for myself, which I will now donate to the high school library where I work part time.  I knew it had won awards, and was about World War II, but had […]

I’ve had this book sitting on my shelf for quite a while now I think.  Can’t even remember when I first bought it.  Probably sometime soon after I read and enjoyed the first book in the series, Beautiful Creatures.  Since this series is not a trilogy, it has 4 books in it, maybe that is […]
