I haven’t been doing so well with this so far.  You can go see my goals on my original post HERE.  But since I don’t have a review to do today, I thought I’d go ahead and do a quick update. So far: Today I’m reading H2O by Virginia Bergin.  Which is not on my […]

Davy’s […]

This is a book I ended up checking out last month when I found myself out and about with nothing to read, and I didn’t want to go home and disturb the dogs just to get a book, so I went to the library.  Instead of just grabbing one book, I ended up leaving with […]

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews. It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected. I’ve got a few things to share this week! E-galleys from Edelweiss: As you know, I’ve been lusting after The Cemetery Boys for awhile now, so when I saw others had it last […]

I have to thank Random House Young Readers and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  Ever since I read the first book in this trilogy, Unspoken, I’ve been a huge fan of this author.  And when I got to meet her at the Romantic Times Convention back in 2013, she […]

Okay, I try not to read reviews until I’m either done with, or almost done with a book.  And can I say that I am shocked by the negativity this book is receiving?  I was very lucky to get an ARC of this at BEA, and after reading it, let me say how glad I […]
