Cover ❤️ A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

As most of you probably saw, the cover for ACOWAR was revealed recently!! I have to say, it’s definitely my favorite of the series so far! I absolutely love the green background…I mean I loved the red and the blue as well, but this one just has such a great feel to it! I also love that we finally have Feyre in the center of […]

Review – The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Review – The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

Talk about slow going. Prior to jumping into The Bone Season, I heard AMAZING things about it as well as the sequel, The Mime Order. Which is all well and good, and likely one of the only reasons I really stuck it out with this one because I found this book to be quite the struggle. To start, I’m thankful that I knew beforehand that this was not a […]

Review – The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

Review – The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

Bring on the gladiators! I was really excited for The Valiant because I LOVE the TV show Spartacus and seeing the roles reversed by female warriors is like the dream. But while this book as received a lot of praise and had some great elements, ultimately it just wasn’t working for me and threatened a DNF several times over. The beginning of the story moves quick which […]

S. Usher Evans’ Quest to Authordom!

S. Usher Evans’ Quest to Authordom!

In May 2013, I broke up with the guy I’d thought I was going to marry. After nearly seven years of waiting, I realized (finally) that he wasn’t interested, so I told him we should cut our losses and move on. I start with this major life event in my “writing origin story” because it was the catalyst that changed everything about me. After six […]

Review – Hard to Handle by Christine Warren

Review – Hard to Handle by Christine Warren

I never expected to read a gargoyle romance. Thankfully it wasn’t as weird as that sounds. Hard to Handle is the fifth book in the Gargoyles series and although, most times, romances can be read as standalones even when listed as part of a series, I think I definitely could have benefited from reading the previous 4 books for background (if you’re thinking about picking any of […]

Review – Beauty and the Wiener by Casey Griffin

Contemporaries are not my thing. I know, I know, then why did I read this one, you ask? Well, one of my goals this year is to read more in this particular genre to balance out the massive amounts of fantasy I read. So keep that in mind when I talk about Beauty and the Wiener because, while this wasn’t the book for me, I think […]

#54 Waiting On… Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I’ve never read any of Laini Taylor’s work, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about her Daughter of Smoke and Bone series! Plus the synopsis of this one sounds so intriguing! I love books that have to deal with mythology type things and this one sounds right up my alley! The cover is also another reason this one is on my list…I am […]

Review – The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne

Review – The Duke by Kerrigan Byrne

This is the first book I’ve read of this series, and by Kerrigan Byrne in general, and it gave me a serious case of mixed feelings. On the one hand, I liked aspects of the romance and story enough that I read it in mostly one sitting. But then I also had issues with that same romance and the characters who both worked and didn’t […]

Cover ❤️ Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

This. Cover. Talk about GORGEOUS. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be a phoenix or not but the artist did a phenomenal job catching my eye (and my money). I don’t even know if I have anything else to say. Just look at it! It’s beautiful! What covers are you swooning over this week?
