I’m back!!!!

Hi everyone!!!

I finally graduated!!!

I’m so sorry that the stress from school and my job took me away from the blog for so long. I’ll start grad school in 2021, but I’ll worry about that then.

For now, I’m back just in time for Halloween reads!!! I’m going to theme my Halloween reads on Vampires this year…

What are you guys reading?! I want to know!!!

Stay tuned for reviews and updates!!

Always,

Catching up!

Hi everyone!

 

It’s been a while (aside from a review here and there). I hope that you’re all doing well! Things are still super busy here, but I have missed being able to talk books with you all so much! I’m going to try to get back to posting at least semi-regularly for now.

So, let’s catch up on the latest!! There are a couple of things that are coming up in the next few weeks/months that I’m super excited about, and a couple that have been announced but, sadly, no dates yet (so that I can pine away looking at my planner).

Let’s dive in!!

First, the long-awaited prequel to The Hunger Games, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes releases on May 19!!I have been anxiously waiting for this day since Suzanne Collins announced that it was coming. As I said before, this is a prequel to The Hunger Games, so we’ll get to see what happened to make Panem the Panem that we came to know.

Next Up: Twilight news!! I never thought that I would be announcing that!! The book that we never thought was coming is coming out in August, y’all! If any of you are Twilight fans, you’ll remember the disappointment at the announcement that Midnight Sun would not be completed and released as the first chapters of it were leaked online. Many years later, we are being given the book from Edward’s perspective that we (yes we, I’m a fan, too- hate me!) have been wanting! It’s set to release on August 4.

Now, onto the fun news with no set dates:

AMC has acquired the rights to all 18 books in Queen Anne’s The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives of the Mayfair Witches and plan to develop a television series. Y’all, I freaked when this dropped yesterday!! It’s no secret that The Lives of the Mayfair Witches is one of my all-time favorite series. I mean, I have the Mayfair Emerald tattooed on my back! Anne and Christopher Rice will be executive producing the series, so hopefully AMC will do them justice. I can’t wait to see what becomes of this!

Finally, also announced recently (I only say it yesterday), Uncle Rick will be writing an Irish Mythology series…eventually! In a blog post, Rick Riordan let fans know that he is finishing up a Masters in Gaelic Literature at University College Cork in order to ensure that the details and the mythology in his books are accurate. So, fear not my demi-god brothers and sisters, there is plenty more RR to look forward to!

That’s all that I have for now! I’m glad to be back with you, at least part-time. What do you guys think about all of this news??!! Is there anything else coming up that you’re excited about? Let me know!!

Always,

Explanation Time

Hey guys!

I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and are having a great start to the new year!

I feel that I owe you all an explanation as to why I suddenly went MIA. I started back to school full-time in the fall. I thought that it would be no problem to balance it, my full-time job, helping my husband with his school, and my reviews and everything. It turns out, I was wrong! So, while I’m working on my next degree the blog is going to be on a semi-hiatus. I will post sporadically, but there won’t be regular reviews and postings. I’m incredibly sorry about that, but I think I’m at a place now where I can at least begin to post a bit again, so I’m happy about that!

Love to you all and have a great 2020!

#backlistboost Friday

Hi everyone!!

It’s time for #backlistboost Friday, again!! This week I’d like to showcase a book that I first read and reviewed back in August of 2015: Get in Trouble: Stories by Kelly Link.

img_1829

I know that I say this every time that I get the chance (so, obviously, I’m going to say it again!), I LOVE short stories!!! Guys, this is honestly my favorite book of short stories to date. The stories in this cross genres of fantasy, myths, and urban legends in an organic way. Link’s writing is completely brilliant, and I was absorbed from the very beginning. This was the first of her books that I read, but it certainly wasn’t the last. There is a reason that I grabbed a book strictly based on her endorsement being on it (the previously boosted Glittering World), and I didn’t regret it for a second. If you’re a fan of the above mentioned genres, and don’t mind your short stories with a little bit of creepiness, this may just be the collection for you! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Checking In!

Hi all!

Sorry I’ve been MIA, but I’ve had virtually no signal since I’ve been on vacation & just now realized that my scheduled posts have not been posting for some reason. Ugh!!

I’ll have to address that when I arrive back home this weekend & have normal wi-fi. In the meantime, here’s a pic of Clete & I at Black Canyon as proof of life & I hope you’re all having a great week so far!!

Always,

#backlistboost Friday

Hi all!!

So, I’m jumping in on the Backlist Boost every Friday, and I’m so excited about sharing some of my favorite backlist books with you guys!!

This week for #backlistboost I want to talk about The Crown’s Game duology by Evelyn Skye.

I didn’t dig waaay in to the backlist for these, as The Crown’s Game was released in 2016 with The Crown’s Fate following in 2017. This is, however, one of my absolute favorite series that I recommend all the time.

This duology has everything that I love in it! It has magic, rich world building, beautiful imagery, characters that you come to love and root for, and a plot that keeps the story moving at a great pace. These were both five star reads for me, and are books that I come back to often. If this sounds like your kind of read, give them a try and let me know what you think!!

You can read my original review with a lot more details of these books here:

The Crown’s Game

The Crown’s Fate (Crown’s Game book 2) *Spoilers, if you haven’t read The Crown’s Game yet!!*
