Remember Me?

I’m that girl who runs this blog.  I know. You thought I fell of the face of the planet.  I can tell you that I’m still hanging on.  August was just one CRAZY month and I barely had time to breathe let alone catch up on any blogging.

I promise that September I will try and do better.  No really! I’m going to give you a brief overview of what these past few weeks have been like.

June Wrap Up in Books

monthlybookwrapup

I’m so sorry this post is so late, but as you can see this month has been nuts!  I’m surprised I got through as much as I did!  I was moving and learning a show in 9 days! My reading took a bit of a backburner until I had settled everything (and learned all my music/lines).  Still, some pretty great ones were read this month!

May Wrap Up in Books

monthlybookwrapup

So May was a bit nuts.  It was my birthday and we’re in the process of getting ready to move–just craziness.  I also might have had a HUGE book hangover after A Court of Mist and Fury so it took me a few days….if you’ve read it, you know exactly what I’m talking about.  I’m actually surprised I read more than last month! I seriously thought I read less since I took off a few days after ACOMAF.  SO GOOD PEOPLE.  So Good.

monthlybookwrapup

Hello Lovelies! How was your month? I was actually a speed reading machine and got through quite a lot.  I was on a romance/chick lit kick and I can’t wait to announce WHY later on this month! Awesome stuff is happening! Anyway, without further ado, here’s what I read this month 🙂 [Read more…]

March Wrap Up in Books

monthlybookwrapup

I can’t believe I read as much as I did this month since I was stuck in Jury Duty for 3 WEEKS!! I KNOW.  You’re not allowed to bring in any electronics so I couldn’t read from my TBR pile since most of it was on my Nook.  I tried reading as much as I could on the train home, but by the end of the day, all I wanted to do was sleep….or have wine.  So I’m kinda surprised I read as much as I did last month.  So without further ado, here’s what I read in March!

February Wrap Up in Books

monthlybookwrapup

So I’m going to try and post one of these once a month.  There are usually more books that I read that I don’t end up reviewing on the blog, but still want to share with you and I thought this would be a quick and fun way to do that!  I know a lot of book bloggers out there usually do a Wrap Up plus a monthly TBR (To Be Read) pile, but I don’t like forcing myself to make a list of books that I HAVE to read–it just puts me off of reading them!  There will prob. be some months (usually when I’m crazy busy) that I won’t have read more, but they’re far and few between.  So hopefully this will be a new addition to the blog!

Book Tuesday: Release Day – The Girl from Everywhere

21979832[1]

Title: The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere #1)
Author: Heidi Heilig
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Publication Date: February 16, 2016
Pages: 464
Buy: Amazon

It was the kind of August day that hinted at monsoons, and the year was 1774, though not for very much longer.

Sixteen-year-old Nix Song is a time-traveller. She, her father and their crew of time refugees travel the world aboard The Temptation, a glorious pirate ship stuffed with treasures both typical and mythical. Old maps allow Nix and her father to navigate not just to distant lands, but distant times – although a map will only take you somewhere once. And Nix’s father is only interested in one time, and one place: Honolulu 1868. A time before Nix was born, and her mother was alive. Something that puts Nix’s existence rather dangerously in question…

Nix has grown used to her father’s obsession, but only because she’s convinced it can’t work. But then a map falls into her father’s lap that changes everything. And when Nix refuses to help, her father threatens to maroon Kashmir, her only friend (and perhaps, only love) in a time where Nix will never be able to find him. And if Nix has learned one thing, it’s that losing the person you love is a torment that no one can withstand. Nix must work out what she wants, who she is, and where she really belongs before time runs out on her forever.

Book Tuesday: GIVEAWAY x2!!

So I have a very different post for today’s Book Tuesday! Since I was slack last week and didn’t post a review, I thought I would make it up to you all with something else this week–a giveaway x2!

Last night I went to the book signing for Susan Dennard’s Truthwitch and Alexandra Bracken’s Passenger! Since I love you all, I got each of their books signed for two of you lucky winners! I’ve read Truthwitch and loved it and I’m about halfway through Passenger and can’t put it down.  SO GOOD.

The signing was awesome! Completely packed.  Erin Bowman was our moderator for the night and she had some fantastic questions for Alex and Sooz.

Book Tuesday: ARC – Truthwitch

21414439[2]

Title: Truthwitch (The Witchlands #1)
Author: Susan Dennard
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publisher: Tor Teen
Publication Date: January 5, 2015
Pages: 416
Buy:Amazon

On a continent ruled by three empires, some are born with a “witchery”, a magical skill that sets them apart from others.

In the Witchlands, there are almost as many types of magic as there are ways to get in trouble—as two desperate young women know all too well.

Safiya is a Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lie. It’s a powerful magic that many would kill to have on their side, especially amongst the nobility to which Safi was born. So Safi must keep her gift hidden, lest she be used as a pawn in the struggle between empires.

Iseult, a Threadwitch, can see the invisible ties that bind and entangle the lives around her—but she cannot see the bonds that touch her own heart. Her unlikely friendship with Safi has taken her from life as an outcast into one of reckless adventure, where she is a cool, wary balance to Safi’s hotheaded impulsiveness.

Safi and Iseult just want to be free to live their own lives, but war is coming to the Witchlands. With the help of the cunning Prince Merik (a Windwitch and ship’s captain) and the hindrance of a Bloodwitch bent on revenge, the friends must fight emperors, princes, and mercenaries alike, who will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.
