Cover Reveal: Brave

Ta da! The third book in the A Wicked Saga trilogy by the talented Jennifer L. Armentrout. Continue reading for the exciting synopsis:

Ivy Morgan hasn’t been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine… and it’s coming between her and the man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart.

If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies. Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves–and, ultimately, to save herself.

Because behind ever evil fae Prince, there’s a Queen

W37 Book of the week 

The book of the week (formerly referred to as “weekend candy” on my blog and my substitute for candy nowadays) is A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro. 
It’s a young adult mystery told in the POV of Jamie Watson, descendant of John Watson, who soon after arriving at his new school Sherringford gets drawn into a murderous plot involving his counterpart Charlotte Holmes, descendant of Sherlock Holmes.

I hope it will be a good read 🙂

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Procrastination, is me

It’s already the 7th of September and I’ve only read 1,5 out of 5 books for #thereadingquest challenge. I’m not too hard on myself, because I’ve really had fun participating and I’m going to try my hardest to finish up at least 2 books total and then start another. I’m definitely joining this challenge next year and will look for other reading challenges to join as well. 

If you have any suggestions for more reading challenges, I’m all ears! 🙂 

I’m currently reading Dreadnought by April Daniels, and it’s riveting! (And that’s despite my procrastination affliction that I’ve had for two weeks now, so you get the level of dedication I have for this book 😉 )

Week 33 #weekendbook(s)

This week’s candy I found at a second hand store and I managed to snag 7 books for little money, which is always gratifying. Especially when the books are in such good condition. It’s basically just the Jeaniene Frost book that had some scuffed edges, but for 1,23$ (10sek) it hardly matters. 😊

  1. Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen
  2. Sense and sensibility by Jane Austen
  3. Emma by Jane Austen
  4. Night Music by Jojo Moyes
  5. At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost
  6. The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton
  7. Wool by Hugh Howey

Have you read any of these? Any you would recommend? 😊

Ready, set, GO!

Today is the first day of #thereadingquest and I want to wish all of you participating GOOD LUCK! 😀 

I’ve started reading my first book and I’ve already changed my TBR day one. Don’t judge, haha! Since I had only read one chapter of Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser before today, I figured that I could sneak it past the rule of only unread books. Especially since I won’t be participating for the price. 😉

And so, for The first book in a series prompt I had originally chosen Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey, but now I’ll be reading Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser instead.

Tell me, or link your challenge tbr in the comments, what have you chosen to read first? If you’re not doing the challenge, I would still love to hear about your current read 🙂

#TheReadingQuest sign up and TBR

I’m joining my first official reading challenge, because who can resist a reading adventure bingo style inspired by video-game quests? Not me!

This challenge was created by the blogger Aentee of Read At Midnight and the art’s created by the talented CW of Read, Think, Ponder.

The challenge starts on the 13th of August and ends on the 10th of September, and I’ve chosen the Mage Path because I think that’s the path I’ll manage to complete within the allotted time. I’m not going to join for the competition part, but I’m still going to keep track of my scores. For every book read you collect experience points (10 EXP per book, 5 EXP per comic/manga) and there’re health points too, like 1 HP per 10 pages, for manga/comics it’s 1 HP per 20 pages, but I think I’m just going to count the experience points.

The books you choose to read can’t be re-reads or books that you’ve started before the 13th. Below you can see the Quest Board and for more about the rules/guidelines click on the Read at Midnight link above. This is so exciting! 😊

The Mages path goes through the first down path, and so my TBR are as follows (which may change a bit as the challenge progresses because I’m a hopeless mood-reader):

The first book in a seriesDragonflight by Anne McCaffrey

A book set in a different worldThe Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

A book based on mythologyThe Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

A book that contains magicSword of Destiny by Andrzej Sapkowski

A book with a one-word titleDreadnought by April Daniels

If I have time, I may do some of the additional side quests (the blue squares in the middle). If I do, I’d like to try:

Mini-gameMonstress, vol 1 by Marjorie Lu or Saga, vol 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Potions –   Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

As I don’t have Photoshop on my computer now, I can’t do the character ID card, so I’ll do a character ID summarization below. Everyone starts with 10 EXP and Level 1 (50 EXP per level).

CR and Quick Bookshelf Tour

I’m currently reading the Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski and I’m really liking it so far. Especially now that I’ve stopped trying to figure out the plot after discovering that the first two books in the Witcher series are basically anthologies. I was sooo confused in the beginning, but liked his writing style so I kept on reading. Then when frustration hit, I Googled it. Lightbulb moment, haha!

Moving on, I thought I’d show you my bookshelves. Well… all except one (because it’s dusty, cluttered, in a poorly lit corner and because I’m a lazy ass avoiding cleaning it).

Summer reads

Hey there,

I’m currently sitting in my mother’s kitchen with some free time on my hands. The kids are busy with their toys and I’m waiting for my mom to text me what time she’ll be at the train station. My kindle is recharging, so continuing on my Kasie West sprint has to wait for a bit. I’m pleasantly surprised by this, for me, new author. She writes cute and fluffy romance books that draw you in and then leaves you with a happy glow afterwards. It’s kind of the same feeling I get after reading Stephanie Perkins trilogy that starts with Anna and the French Kiss.

So far I’ve read 2 of her books in as many days, only reading in the evenings when my kids have gone to bed. On The Fence is probably my favorite compared to By Your Side, but I really liked them both. I started reading The Distance Between Us this morning before my Kindle gave up on me.

Now I’m taking my kids out for some ice cream (Gotta love summer!). Have a nice day! 🙂

Cover Reveal: Ultimate Sacrifice 

Today cover reveal is Ultimate Sacrifice by S. E. Green, which the publisher Oftomes describes as a creepy mystery horror story with supernatural elements. (Yes please!) 

The cover itself is creeptastic as you can see above and the blurb is what made me add this book on my Goodreads page. I’m wishing the release date was a little closer than October 10th (greedy I know). Though on second thought, October is probably the perfect month to publish a horror story. 😉
