All the Crooked Saints

Read: 10/12-10/18 Thanks to my friend I got hooked on The Raven Boys series and on Maggie Stiefvater as an author. So once I read the last book in the series I went through a little withdrawal. Once again I had found an author with a writing style that I loved so much and needed…

Beserker

Read: 10/18-10/20 October was a month of great reads and new releases. There were a lot of new books coming out by authors that I was a big fan of but there were new books coming out by authors I was unfamiliar with. This was my first time reading a book by this author and…

The Memory Trees

Read: 11/08-11/22 So I went from reading about a vineyard to an orchard. However, these two books couldn’t be more different. One of the reasons I was drawn to this book was the promise of magical realism. I love books that make you wonder whether or not there was magic or just a coincidence experienced…

Illuminae

Read: 10/23-11/02 So a while back I had to pack a lot of books up to put in storage because my husband was being sent overseas. I had to decide which books were going to remain out of storage for the next 6 months and which I was reluctantly going to put into storage. This…

Eight Hundred Grapes

Read: 11/02-11/06 As I have mentioned before, in previous posts, book clubs are a great way to learn about new books. I was in the process of getting ready to move back to Southern California because my husband was finally coming home after a long six months. I had learned about a book club offered…

Reality Gold

Read: 05/14-05/18 I received a copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. What caught my eye on this book was the title and the cover. It looked like it would be about hidden treasure and I was expecting it to be a time period book but what I got…

The Last Summer of the Garret Girls

Read: 03/08-03/11 I received an advanced copy of this book on Net Galley. This was the first book that I have received from them and I was not let down. This is the perfect book to come out right before summer. It has everything that a summer read needs: small town, romance, unique summer festivals,…

By Your Side

Read: 09/23 A while back I took a survey for one of the book websites I follow. As part of taking the survey, I was able to get a free ebook from a selection. I chose this book as the free one I wanted because I had seen a lot of information on it and…

Annihilation

Read: 09/05-09/10 Once again I am guilty of reading a book because it will be a movie. And once again I will defend myself because no one should be book shamed. Honestly as long as you are reading a book who cares what made you decide to read it in the first place. If I…

Spellbook of the Lost and Found

Read: 08/13-08/15 I have a list of authors that I will read anything by them. I will read their grocery lists just to keep reading what they write. So I keep all ears and eyes out for new books by these authors and then practically break down the doors of the nearest bookstore once it…
