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!
An Ember in the Ashes is getting a graphic novel!!! It’s going to be a prequel trilogy, and is set to come out next summer. I’m so stoked!!!
That’s all. I just thought you might want to nerd out with me. Carry on! 😊

It’s been a while! We had an illness that turned in to a loss in the family, so I’ve been silent for a while, but I’m back online now.

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.
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!

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!!
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:
