2012 Wrap-Up and Goals for 2013

So this year I participated in 2 year-long challenges:  The TBR Pile Reading Challenge and the A-Z Book Challenge.  Both of which I completed!!!  The TBR pile should have been easy, yet as I got new books, those sounded better than the ones I’d already had sitting on my shelves, even though I’d been so… Read more »

Redemption (Hearts of Stone #1) by Veronique Launier

Redemption (Hearts of Stone #1) by Veronique Launier

First, of course, thanks to Netgalley and Flux books for letting me read an egalley of this book. I have to say as soon as I figured out from the cover, as well as the description of the book that this was about gargoyles, I was hooked!  I have always been fascinated by gargoyles, from… Read more »

Suck It Up and Die by Brian Meehl

Suck It Up and Die by Brian Meehl

I got this book thanks to Netgalley and Random House Children’s Books. It’s been a while since I read the first one, Suck it Up. That I read for a possible book on the Gateway or Truman book list a couple years ago. I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t one of my top picks that… Read more »

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

First I have to say thank you to Netgalley and Macmillan Childrens Publishing Corporation for letting me read the egalley of this book.  It really fits in with all the end of the world stories I seem to be reading lately.  It is set slightly in the future, eveyone carries a “tab” around with them… Read more »

Transcendence by C.J. Omololu

Transcendence by C.J. Omololu

First, thanks to NetGalley and Bloomsbury Publishers for letting me read this as an egalley.  I really liked this book.  It is a book about reincarnation.  Which reminds me of another of my favorite book series, The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller.  Yes, Incarnate by Jodi Meadows is also about reincarnation, but it is a… Read more »

The Weepers:  The Other Life 1 by Susanne Winnacker

The Weepers: The Other Life 1 by Susanne Winnacker

The Weepers: The Other Life by Susanne Winnacker My rating: 3 of 5 stars Normally I would wait until a month before the publishing date to review a book from Netgalley, but since I see that the ebooks were “published” already, I thought it would be okay to go ahead and post my review. Once… Read more »

Fever by Lauren DeStefano

Fever by Lauren DeStefano

Fever by Lauren DeStefano My rating: 4 of 5 stars I waited so long to read this from when I got to read the first book in the series, Wither. I wished really bad I’d get an ARC of it since I’d gotten to read Wither as an ARC. But it didn’t happen, so I… Read more »
