The time it was a cover reveal {11}

I don’t think it’s a secret how much I adore Ashley Elston and her words.  I have loved everything she’s written and when she started talking on Twitter about her upcoming 2018 release {then called The Preacher Woods} I told her I would volunteer as tribute and beta read for her. To my surprise, she offered up the book! AND I LOVED IT. The title has been switched to The Lying Woods {which I think fits so much better} […]

The time it was a monthly recap {32}

The time it was a monthly recap {32}

I can’t believe we’re already in April.  I know I say this every recap, but it always seems like I just did last month’s recap.  Maybe it’s the procrastinator in me because these posts take forever to draft. Anyhoo, ready for the March recap? Settle in. Last month, I read a total of 21 books. Obsidio by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff — 5 stars Claim Me, Cowboy by Maisey Yates — 3 stars Second Chance Charmer by Brighton […]

The time it was about Starry Eyes

The time it was about Starry Eyes

I am a huge fan of Jenn Bennett’s and her words are some of my favorites.  I have loved all of her YA books and I feel fairly certain I’ll love her adult stories too, as soon as I get to them.  When I got my greedy hands on Jenn’s newest book, Starry Eyes, I devoured it and then couldn’t sign up for the blog tour fast enough. Before we get to Jenn’s mini interview, let’s check out the […]


The time there was a sing-along

The time there was a sing-along

Going to see Gayle Forman is always a given.  I have loved all of her books and after reading I Have Lost My Way, I couldn’t wait to hear her talk about it. As always, we got to the store early.  We got our books and then headed over to Starbucks and Target and to grab something to eat.  We went back to the store about a hour before it started and ran amok, as usual. Gayle came out […]

The time there was fake candlelight

The time there was fake candlelight

Seeing Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff is always a sure thing. When I saw they were coming back to Mysterious Galaxy, I couldn’t buy my signing line ticket fast enough. On the day of the event, we got to the store at our usual time, hugged all of our favorites and then got some delicious noodles and pastries.  When we got back to the store, we flapped our books, made the epic decision of what post-its to use and […]

The time it was Reading Rewind {16}

The time it was Reading Rewind {16}

Hi guys! Here we are for another episode of Reading Rewind! I’ll be completely honest: I am totally cheating on this one. I didn’t have any plan to do a RR this month, but then I ended up doing some rereading on my own. It just so happened that I changed the rating on one of the books I read, so here we are. This month’s choice was The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater! This was the first Maggie […]
