After quickly getting through the first two books in the The Dark Elements series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, I got onto the database search at the bookstore where I work, and started looking at which of her titles we had in stock.  I was disappointed to not find any others than the ones I already […]

I checked this book out through the awesome employee benefit at my bookstore.  Hardcover books with dust jackets we are able to check out if we leave the jacket and sign it out with a manager.  This was my first book by Chuck Palahniuk, although I have seen the Fight Club movie, so I figured […]

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I’m trying not to hang my head in shame at how many books I got again this week.  It’s such an addiction!  I swear I’m really trying to stop!  But hey, books are books, […]

First, thanks to Scholastic and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  I got to read the first one, Fire and Flood, the same way, but then won a physical copy of it.  And I will have to own this one as well.  Once again Victoria Scott has written a wonderfully complex […]

Okay, once again prepare for a love fest.  I am hooked now on Jennifer L. Armentrout’s books.  Being able to read the first one, White Hot Kiss, and then this 2nd one right after it, is going to make it very hard to wait until the third one, Every Last Breath, comes out this July.  […]

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 I’ve seen on a lot of other blogs.  I love the cover and as it is a retelling/inspired by a classic, I definitely want to read it.  […]
