Baby I'm Howling For You     By A Charm and a Curse

I thoroughly enjoyed both By A Charm & A Curse by Jaime Questell, and Baby, I’m Howling For You by Christine Warren. Reviews of these two very different but very great 2018 releases will definitely be gracing my blog in the coming months.  Continue reading

Sense and Sensibility     The Heartbreak Cure     Whisper

Guys! I totally reached last week’s goal and passed it! Three books instead of two! Who’s a boss? That’s right: I am! So, first off: Sense and Sensibility was disappointing. Yup, disappointing. Let me issue this disclaimer real quick: I legit LOVE Jane Austen. L-O-V-E. Pride and Prejudice is my favourite book and my favourite movie (2007 version with Keira Knightley) of all time. That being said, Sense and Sensibility just paled in comparison. I don’t want to spoil anything for you guys, but if you’re interested in reading my spoiler filled, mini rant on Goodreads, you can check it out here. These other two books were recently received and kind of just jumped the line of my TBR pile. Reviews to come. Continue reading

Living the Good Death by Scott Baron

Wearing nothing but psych ward pajamas and fluffy slippers, the odd girl wasn’t really dressed to kill. Being the Grim Reaper, however, she felt confident she could make it work.

Have you ever had one of those days? You know, the kind of day when things just don’t go your way. Like when your botched suicide attempt and claims of supernatural powers get you hauled to the emergency room, placed under observation, then transferred to a locked-down psych facility.

The girl who thought she was Death had failed miserably in her efforts to shed the troublesome human body in which she was trapped. The result? Finding herself surrounded by nutjobs, locked in a mental ward ruled by a humorless doctor with a Napoleon complex and a penchant for sleight of hand. Sure, she did technically bring it on herself, but how was she to know that trying to off herself in public and using her outside voice to proclaim she was Death incarnate would result in a psych ward lockdown?

With that problematic little blunder behind her, the concerns now vexing her were pressing. Escape, both from the mental hospital, as well as from this plane of existence, was vital, but equally so was addressing the other issue haunting her. The big one. The one that could end the world. The issue that with Death missing, people would rather inconveniently no longer die like they were supposed to. Eventually, things would hit critical mass. She just didn’t know when.

The situation was, well, grim, to say the very least. An irony not lost on the girl claiming to be the Death.

Glass Sword

I read Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen quite a while ago, but there’s always buzz about this series so I decided to give Glass Sword a try. While I’m not sure if I’ll be reviewing this book or not, what I can say is that broken characters are my new favourite thing.

CURRENTLY READING

Firebolt               Sense and Sensibility

Yes, I am still reading these. Not that they’re terrible but I just needed time for other stuff and then Glass Sword sucked me in.

NEXT ON MY READING LIST

Marked     The Girl and the Grove     Jane Eyre

As you can see, I’m still determined to read Marked, but now I have two shiny new books that I really want to read. The first is The Girl and the Grove by Eric Smith and this was provided to me by Flux through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I’m really thankful to them and I look forward to reading this and giving feedback. The second is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte and as you may or may not know/ remember, I’m really trying to read the classics. More importantly though: I’m addicted to Alexa Donne, a 2018 debut author, who constantly describes her book as Jane Eyre in space. And because I’m #obsessed, I have to read Jane Eyre before I read her book. Obviously. 🙂

Work and studying has really slowed me down reading wise but I think I can still squeeze in two good books this week. What about you guys?

How was your Monday and what are you guy reading?

Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere, He’s used to people judging him for his rough background, his intimidating size, and now, his orphan status. He’s always been on the outside, looking in, and he’s fine with that. Until he moves to New Wurzburg and meets Friederike Burkhart.

Freddie isn’t like normal teen girls, though. And someone wants her dead for it. Freddie warns he’d better stay far away if he wants to stay alive, but Rain’s never been good at running from trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for.
