December Book Haul!

I hope everyone's holiday was fabulous! Mines was great. We went to morning bible class and had an awesome worship service.  After that we came home and enjoyed presents, food, and most of all family.

For this month I didn't get a lot of books. I got one hardback and three kindle books

I got this book through the book depository. I ordered it early this month and it came the day before Christmas Eve. I actually forgot that I ordered it. Even though I didn't love or hate the movie I do plan on reading the screen play and adding this to my harry potter collection. And besides, can we just gush over how beautiful the cover is?










I got this book through the goodreads deal. I had no idea that award books go on sale after the results are shown. Also, I have to read this for work so it worked out pretty good



 This is one of my favorite adult series. I also got this through the goodreads deal

And finally this was purchased through goodreads and it is also on the list for me to read …

Book Review: The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

Goodreads Summary: Fast-paced and addictive, THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR announces a major new talent in thriller writing.

You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall.

Your neighbour told you that she didn't want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn't stand her crying.

Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You'll have the baby monitor and you'll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She's gone.

You've never had to call the police before. But now they're in your home, and who knows what they'll find there.

What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?

Trying to review this book will be a tad bit difficult because of trying not to give away major spoilers and some of those spoilers happen early on w…

Audiobook Spotlight! Shadows of Tomorrow by Jessica Meats

Author: Jessica Meats Narrator: Jake Urry Length: 10h 13m Publisher:Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie Publishers Ltd⎮2016 Genre: Science Fiction Release date: Oct. 03, 2016



Earth is at war. Portals are opening across the planet and bringing creatures known as Outsiders. Their only desire is to eat, leaving a trail of destruction in their path. All that stand in their way are the Defenders led by Gareth Walker who can open portals of their own to target the Outsiders in minutes. Gareth's one advantage is an ability to see glimpses of his future.
For the past decade the Defenders have held back the incursion, but now a new portal opens, bringing something that Gareth did not see coming. As he must find a way to stop this new threat, he starts a quest for answers. He must learn how the war began and find a way to stop them once and for all.
All the while, he is aware of a shadow in his future a moment he can't see past. Will stopping the Outsiders cost him everything?

All I want for Christmas Book Tag

I'm pretty sure a lot of you guys have a wishlist...wait...a bookish wishlist miles and miles high. I know for a fact that I do. So this is a tag that I have stumbled upon from a couple of years ago but it still seems pretty neat. I found this post at Stephanie's Book Reviews. Feel free to tag yourself and leave a link so I can see and comment on it :)

#1 What fictional Character do you want Santa to leave under your Christmas Tree?
 With this question I had two characters that I wanted to have for Christmas but I will go with my current obssesion (ACOMAF..if you didn't know) and have Rhysand. I need him in my life.

#2. What Character do you want to kiss under the mistletoe?
My first choice is Rhysand but I don't want to be repetitive so I will go with Gavin from the Collide series by Gail Mchugh

#3.) You write your Christmas List for Santa, what are your top 5 books on it?
Most of these books don't come out until around the beginning of next year but these are my mo…

Book Review: Thief of Lies by Brenda Drake

( I received this ebook by the publisher through netgalley in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Gia Kearns would rather fight with boys than kiss them. That is, until Arik, a leather clad hottie in the Boston Athenaeum, suddenly disappears. While examining the book of world libraries he abandoned, Gia unwittingly speaks the key that sucks her and her friends into a photograph and transports them into a Paris library, where Arik and his Sentinels—magical knights charged with protecting humans from the creatures traveling across the gateway books—rescue them from a demonic hound.

Jumping into some of the world's most beautiful libraries would be a dream come true for Gia, if she weren’t busy resisting her heart or dodging an exiled wizard seeking revenge on both the Mystik and human worlds. Add a French flirt obsessed with Arik and a fling with a young wizard, and Gia must choose between her heart and her head, between Arik's world and her own, before both are de…

December TBR

5 more books to 50? I think I can do that. I also have a little bit more that I would like to add and try to add to that goal but the Remnant chronicles are big books but I'm determined. 😀

These are at the top of my list

I know for a fact that I will read this duology. Nothing is going to stop me either




















As soon as I finish Six of crows Duology I am going to dive right into these babies. I have put these off for so long and I just cannot wait to read them.























This is one that I have to read for a book club that I run at work. It sounds good and I'm pretty sure I will like it. It is not what I normally go to but I'm all about getting out of my comfort zone
These next few books are maybe.  I would like to read them but we will see!!


November Wrap up!!

For the month of November I read 5 books. I am so proud of myself because I knocked out some of my books that were sent to me for review.  I am currently 45 books towards my goal of 50. I plan on making that goal and more by the end of the month.

I was sent this ARC from Entangle teen and I loved it. I can't wait until the next one comes out in this series. Kori is a teenager that has trouble for a middle name. When her father goes on a away on military business he leaves two gentlemen with her so she stays out of trouble. With Cade and Noah comes danger as well as they embark on a mission that has everything to do with Kori's family that she did not know about. In addition to someone wanting her dead. This story has time travel and jumping different dimensions. If you liked A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray then I think you will like this as well









I read and reviewed this book as part of an audio book tour. This was my first audio review for a book. This story is about …

November book haul!

This month I have recently taken advantage of bookoutlet. I have seen bloggers and booktubers talk and rave about this website and I finally checked it out. Long story short....it makes adulting very hard if you have a set budget. I got 11 books and saved over $100 dollars. Hardbacks? 2.99? WHAT!!!!! I am addicted and I have no shame whatsoever. I also got two books sent to me for review as well on my kindle. They are Thief of lies from Entangle Teen and a ARC of Ares.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.








This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

Book Review: Fate of Flames Effigies bk1) by Sarah Raughley

(I received this ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads Summary: Four girls with the power to control the elements and save the world from a terrible evil must come together in the first epic novel in a brand-new series.

When Phantoms—massive beasts made from nightmares and darkness—suddenly appeared and began terrorizing the world, four girls, the Effigies, each gained a unique power to control one of the classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water. Since then, four girls across the world have continually fought against the Phantoms, fulfilling their cosmic duty. And when one Effigy dies, another girl gains her power as a replacement.

But now, with technologies in place to protect the world’s major cities from Phantom attacks, the Effigies have stopped defending humanity and, instead, have become international celebrities, with their heroic feats ranked, televised, and talked about in online fandoms.

Until the day that New York City’s protection against th…

Book Review: I Was a B*** by Emily Ruben

( I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review)
Goodreads Summary: What if you woke up having forgotten the last two years of your life?

After a horrific accident Lacey Jones has to try piece together her shattered past. With no memory of the previous two years she finds herself in a relationship with a man she doesn’t know, and with a reputation for being the Queen Bitch of High-School. 

She decides to keep the secret of her memory loss until she can figure out what happened in these two years she lost, trusting only the mysterious and sexy Finn to help her, but will she continue being that bitch or will she decide to rewrite her story?







This was such a fun read. There were moments when I burst out laughing and there were moments when my heart broke. Lacy wakes up from a two month coma and can't remember anything from the previous two years. She learns that she was in a car accident and everything prior to that is a blur. She struggles to figure out thing…
