Terrific Tuesday: Torn by Jennifer L. Armentrout Release Date July 16, 2016

This Terrific Tuesday is a bit different because honestly I am not 100% sure that Torn is actually releasing today. The authors website states that it is being released today as well as her publisher but so far I do not see it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. With this said I am excited about this release because I did enjoy the first book in this series, Wicked, and I am eager […]

Mini-Reviews from June 2016 Re-Cap

As you know I read a ton of books in June. I wanted to do some “mini-reviews” (well in some cases more like rants) on a few of those books because I thought it would be fun. I gave this 2 stars. I was not the biggest fan of the storyline or characters. The fantasy portion was “been there, done that.” The romance angle, ugh too much brother and sister kissing […]

Terrific Tuesday: Trials of the Earth: The True Story of a Pioneer Woman by Mary Mann Hamilton Release Date July 12, 2016

This is a very interesting Terrific Tuesday post today. From time to time a book will catch my eye that is of historical value. I am looking forward to reading this book as it is a first hand account of what life was like for a true pioneer woman. I strongly recommend getting a hold of this book: The Powerful, Only Known First-Person Account of One Woman’s Struggles and Triumphs […]

Terrific Tuesday: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab, Release Date July 05, 2016

Hello to another Terrific Tuesday post! I have been looking forward to the release of This Savage Song for a while but after reading A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab recently I am now a little apprehensive. In case you did not know V.E. Schwab is a pseudonym for Victoria Schwab, they are both one and the same author. If you have been following my blog then you would have seen my […]

Terrific Tuesday: Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh, Release Date June 07, 2016

It is another Terrific Tuesday! I have heard a lot of chatter about Ivory and Bone and I am hopeful that I will love this book. Anything that will bring Pride and Prejudice to mind is a must read for me. Not to mention maybe a little The Clan of the Cave Bear-ish.  Just read this synopsis: A prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice. Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family […]

Ok, I have yet to do this kind of post. Why am I starting? Mainly to get these books read! How can I not read them when I committed the idea to a post? The horror! Is that not why everyone does it?

Terrific Tuesday: The Emperor’s Revenge & The Pages of the Mind, Release Date May 31, 2016

For me this is a Terrific Tuesday! Why is today so exciting you ask?? For me, one of my favorite authors is releasing a book today, The Emperor’s Revenge, that happens to be part of a favorite series of mine. Who is this Author you ask? Why thank you for asking, it is none other than Clive Cussler. I have been a huge fan (seriously have every single book) of […]

The struggles of a beginning book blogger

I still consider myself a beginner book blogger and I will until I hit the six month mark. My blog is not quite 4 months old at this point and it has been a real personal growth catalyst for me. 😉 This is where I give a shout out to all the followers who have been with me from the beginning: Much Love!! My first issue was writing the reviews themselves. […]

Here we are again with another Terrific Tuesday! This book comes from the same author that gave us Under a Painted Sky. Stacey Lee is back with her newest novel: Outrun the Moon.

Hello Again! It is Terrific Tuesday! The book that I have chosen today is from #1 New York Times and USA Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout. I know that JLA has her own cult following and I have to be honest and state that I have only actually read one of her many books, so I can not say that I am her biggest fan because I have not read enough […]

Terrific Tuesday: Troublemaker, Release Date May 10, 2016

I spend countless hours scouring the upcoming book releases trying to find something that: I will enjoy reading a new author that I think will make it big or a new series from an author that I follow So I decided that I am going to release a post on the Tuesdays that a book publishes and I think is worth mentioning. It will also most likely end up being reviewed […]
