#backlistboost Friday

Happy Friday, everyone!!! I hope you’ve all had a great week!!! It’s been a long one here, but we’ve almost made it to the weekend. Any big weekend plans?!

It’s that time again… Ready for today’s #backlistboost?!

Today I’m going to reach back to an original pub date of 2008 to bring you one of my favorite YA Fantasy books: Graceling by Kristin Cashore.

Graceling is the tale of Katsa, who lives in the Seven Kingdoms. Certain people in the Kingdoms are born with a special ability called a Grace. Katsa is one of these people, and she was born with the Grace to kill. She is forced to use her Grace as an enforcer for her uncle, the King, until the day that she meets Prince Po and things begin to change.

I really enjoyed the beautiful writing and complex and descriptive world building by Cashore. If you’re a fantasy fan, give this one a try! If you like it, it has two companion books set in the same world, Fire and Bitterblue.

Finding Our Way Back (Well Paired, Book 5)

img_1898-1

Author: Marianne Rice

Series: Well Paired

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Star Hill Press

Pages: 380

Jenna Snyder spends her days caring for an elderly man and her free time relaxing by making pottery. She seems to have finally put her life and her heart back together after it was completely shattered. Those painful memories are the only thing keeping her from moving forward and finding someone new. Tristan, the man who broke her heart, is in Crystal Cove running his catering business in partnership with the small winery there. He had no idea that this would mean his running in to Jenna. He will do anything in his power to make things right with her. He has to make sure that she doesn’t find out the truth behind what really tore them apart…

Welcome back to Crystal Cove! This is the fifth installment in the Well Paired series by Marianne Rice. This may be the most emotionally heavy book in the series, yet. The Jenna and Tristan story was a roller coaster of heartbreak and healing, and I am here for it! It was a bit of a slow burn, but the payoff was worth the wait. As with the other books in this series, the characters were well developed and fleshed out. This could be my favorite book in this series (I may have said this before, though?). If you want a book to pull at your heartstrings, I recommend this one! I also recommend pairing this with a glass (bottle?) of your favorite red or white. 

The Pirate’s Betrothed (Sea Scoundrels, Book 1)

Author: Kimberley Anne

Genre: Historical Romance 

Series: Sea Scoundrels 

Pages: 83

Publisher: Indie

Hannah O’Rourke and Abigail Murphy are fleeing Ireland for the colony of Rhode Island. They know that it is a dangerous journey, and that it may not being them much safety, but they are both willing to take the risk. Hannah is fleeing an arranged marriage to a pirate whom she has no intention of marrying. Abigail, her now closest friend, is carrying the bastard of a sea captain whom she loved but did not want to marry her. When Abigail dies giving birth, she leaves the baby to Hannah to raise. Unfortunately, Hannah soon learns that not only is the baby’s father more than willing to take and raise him, he is the same pirate to whom she was betrothed and ran from. Righteous anger, rum, and a fiery temper mix together to formulate a plan that doesn’t quite go as planned. 

Look y’all, I’m branching out! This was a really entertaining, short historical romance! I really enjoyed it, and read it super quickly. If I didn’t know better, I honestly wouldn’t have guessed that this is Kimberley’s debut historical romance. The plot was paced well, so it didn’t feel that it was lacking anything in the novella length. The characters were great! Hannah was great, and her temper and emotions were a mood! I loved her! The engaging characters and well paced plot will keep you reading straight through to the surprise at the end! If you enjoy clean historical romances, or just want to dip your toe in and see if you enjoy them, try this one out!

#backlistboost Friday

Happy Friday everyone!!

It’s time for #backlistboost Friday!!

This week I’m boosting one of my favorite post-apocalyptic/dystopian books, The Fire Sermon, by Francesca Haig.

The Fire Sermon is the first book in a very different post-apocalyptic/dystopian trilogy, where everything has changed due to the after effects of radiation. Every pregnancy now results in twins. One twin is always born with some sort of deficiency. These are the Omegas…

If you’re a fan of post-apocalyptic/dystopian reads, and want something a bit different, give this a shot! I think you’ll dig it!!

The August Plan…

Happy Monday, everyone!!

I can’t believe that August is already here!

This year feels like it has flown by, and we are getting close to my favorite time of the year: Fall!! Unfortunately, for me, this year the Fall season is bringing me back to school. I’ve decided to pursue another degree, and I start back in September. That means that I am trying to get in as much fun reading as I can this month!

I am going to try to get through as many of these as possible before the Fall quarter starts:

I am currently reading Three Women by Lisa Taddeo, which I am enjoying. I’m also making my way through Preacher for the first time, and wondering why I’ve waited so long to read it!

What are your reading plans for August? Do you have any big upcoming plans for fall?

What should I read next?!

Let me know your thoughts!!

Have a great week!

Always,

T
