Daughters of the Lake by Wendy Webb

I LOVED THIS BOOK! This is a book I chose for my February stack and I picked it up yesterday to start reading so I could slow my pace on The Alice Network. Within the first few chapters I was totally enthralled and could not put it down. I finished it in less than 24…

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

I have FINALLY finished this book! It feels like it took me a million years…or it could be that the beginning of the year just drags by that slowly. Anyone else feeling it? You’ll also note that this was part of my January reading stack and I’ve only just finished it in February! So now I’m behind on…

Dorothy Must Die Series by Danielle Paige

I stumbled upon this series earlier this past summer– before I had a blog where I could really talk about it. I think it was just one of those things where you’re moseying around the book store and a bright spine with neat font catches your eye. There are a few things that make a…

January Reading Round-Up

If you follow my bookstagram page, you saw my January TBR stack. I chose 4 books and then added a 5th that was yet to be determined at the time. If you follow me on GoodReads, you know that my 2019 reading challenge is to read 50 books. So, 5 books for January seemed like…

The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

I went a little outside my box of YA/Fantasy and picked up this thriller in the airport on my way home from Florida last month — I had it in my stack of TBR’s for January and finished it last night. I was both intrigued and a little *shook* as I was making my way…

A Map of Days by Ransom Riggs

I finished this book 480 page book in roughly 4 days–that’s how much I loved it. And I finished it while also juggling my toddler so I feel that’s impressive and should be noted. While long, this was a pretty easy read, definitely a page-turner if you’re already invested in the story of the Peculiars…

The Traitor Prince by C.J. Redwine

It may be a couple months in the making (with a lengthy dry spell of zero reading) but I’ve FINALLY finished The Traitor Prince–the third book in the stand alone Ravenspire Series by C.J. Redwine. I don’t know what happened to me over the summer…I just didn’t make any time for reading. I credit a…

Books I Can’t Wait to Get My Hands On

Do you remember what it was like waiting for the next Harry Potter book to come out? Of course you do (because of course you’re a Harry Potter fanatic too). We all waited with baited breath, pre-ordered and literally counted down the days to book release. I even remember waiting in absurd lines with my…

The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine

I’ve just finished the second book in the Ravenspire Series! In this second stand alone novel titled The Wish Granter by C.J. Redwine, we follow the tales of Rumpelstiltskin (who goes by Alistair Teague). We also meet twins Thaddeus and Ariana who become King and Princess overnight, and Sebastian, a mysterious tough guy turned weapons…

The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine

If you love fairy tales, retellings, and a little bit of flair and twists to make the story still seem brand new, then you will LOVE The Shadow Queen by C.J. Redwine. This particular retelling, if not given away by the gorgeous cover, is based on Snow White; in this book, she is called Lorelei…
