The Wizard’s Promise by Cassandra Rose Clarke

The Wizard’s Promise by Cassandra Rose Clarke

April 24, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★½

Little disclaimer: I am a terrible blogger and I did not read the series that comes before this one. The good news is that I didn’t need to read the series that comes before to understand it and that I now want to read The Assassin’s Curse even more! (so I say while this is probably somewhat unprofessional of me-it did turn out for the best). Ever since I read the synopsis for The Wizard’s Promise, I KNEW I had to pick up a copy! Wizards.Magic.Wind.Mystery.Pirates. This book had everything I wanted! And I liked the main character, huzzah! The book starts off with Hannah. Basically Hannah is a fisherman’s apprentice with a super awesome former-pirate as a mom. Her mom tells her stories about her time working on The Nadir (this is where The Assassin’s Curse series comes in!). While I was somewhat oblivious… Read more »

Wait For You by J. Lynn ~ Mini Review ~

April 23, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★★½

Sorry folks but to be honest this review is going to be short, sweet and straight to the point.  ;) Oh J.Lynn who must you torture and destroy my heart this way?! WHY?!   Wait For You made me happy, sad, swoony, violent, sympathetic and frustrated all in a 10 minute time frame. I loved the characters, and even though the whole “damaged girl meets boy” story has been done so many times, I truly felt like their story was different. Their story was their own and I’m not really sure how that’s even possible. The story of Avery (damaged yet absolutely LOVELY girl) and Cam (hot, smart, a little older and completely sweet boy) was one I read in complete wonder. I couldn’t help but wonder what was going to happen, how was it going to happen and would… Read more »

Confession Time

April 21, 2014 Announcements, Challenges 19

Happy Monday you beautiful people you! If you follow me on twitter then on Saturday when I was at work you probably saw my tweet about “unplugging” for the weekend and just doing some “pressure free” reading. It turns out not only did I REALLY need this but it was probably the best idea I’ve had in a very long time. Lately I’ve put so much pressure on keeping the blog perfect (with Shelly’s help that hasn’t been hard actually), keeping the virtual book club up and running and fun, and keeping up with the series and ARC April challenges I’ve organized I’ve been feeling down about my lack of reading. I’ve read a total of 8 books for the year as of April 19th. An all time low and somewhat embarrassing reality for me. I go to the library and… Read more »


How to Organize Your Shelves + Unhaul!

How to Organize Your Shelves + Unhaul!

April 20, 2014 Random Ramblings 2

  Hey guys, I recently re-organized my shelves and I’m super proud of how it turned out. At the end of the post, I have a video sharing some books that I don’t want anymore and that I’m willing to giveaway/trade/donate. As you can see, before I organized my bookcase, I had a lot of books scattered in random piles and the bottom of my shelves/the top had random junk. Here are the key things I focused on when organizing my shelves. Decide which books you want to keep. Before anything else, you have to choose which books you will include on you shelves. First off, take out all your favourites because of course you’ll want to keep those. Also take out all your unread books (I personally read all the books on my shelves BUT you can use the following questions… Read more »

Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

April 17, 2014 Reviews 6 ★★

When I read the synopsis for Second Star, I was super excited to read it. Peter Pan retelling? HECK YEA! Hook/Wendy/Peter love triangle? Uhm, YES! But sadly, I did not forsee the signs that this book was not for me. First, the surfing. This book has so much surfing, beachtime fun and other things I dislike in it. The cover is people on surfboards and yet I did not put together the fact that this book has surfing in it. I really really should have known better, THE SYNOPSIS EVEN SAYS IT. But before you start ranting to me, let me explain. I am not a beach person. I hate hot weather (I get uncomfortable when sweaty-gross) and sand annoys me. It gets EVERYWHERE. So the beach setting is not for me but it does make Second Star a perfect summer read. Second, the… Read more »

Time To Nut Up or Shut Up…

April 15, 2014 Reviews 11

Hey lovelies, as I was sitting here thinking of ARC’s in general and my progress with ARC April an email popped up on my screen from Cuddlebuggery. Apparently the masterminds over there have a “few” books they’ve forgotten to review and Steph went through them all in one post. Now this, mixed with my ARC based thoughts gave me a fabulous idea! I am going to do a post that covers all the ARC’s I’ve requested and have either DNFed or totally lost interest in.  I’ve spent so much time trying to convince and force myself to finish them when the reality is that’s just not going to happen for each and everyone. So without further ado, I give you my first round of ” overdue reviews”. Blush By Lauren Jameson Published May 7th, 2013 Received via NetGalley Blush was a… Read more »
