Sparrow by Mary Cecilia Jackson will stick with you. It's poignant, well written, and engaging. This book was nothing that I expected but something that may hit home. This book deals with some extremely serious events, so be warned and ready to have that discussion with your child if/when they pick this book up.
This week on #FaeFriday we're talking about Sparkles. Faeries are associated with being obsessed with sparkles. So this week's prompt is: What is a book cover that was so beautiful you couldn't stop staring at it? I have to admit, I judge books by their covers. I know I'm not supposed to, but seriously a good cover catches the eye, and that always makes me want to pick it up and read the blurb.
As many of you know, I found Gina L. Maxwell last year through her Neverland series. Obviously I have been in love ever since. Gina seems to write characters that will make you fall in love and plot lines that will steam up your kindle. When Gina made the announcement that Seducing Cinderella was getting a revamp & rerelease I was ecstatic! I've had this book in my wish list for AGES so I'm excited to finally have the chance to read it in its final glory!
It's Friday the 13th, and we're talking about Leprechauns! Did you know that leprechauns are viewed as a type of faerie? I definitely didn't! With this St. Patrick's Day right around the corner, it's the perfect time to talk about a Leprechaun's treasure! So the prompt this week is: What is your hidden treasure of a book?
When I was approached about this book tour, I knew I needed to jump in. Magic Unleashed is right up my alley, and I couldn't wait to get started. I ended up low on time, so I snagged the audiobook so that I could read it while reading a few other books in between. The narrator did a good job of portraying the characters, though, at times, his voice bordered on monotone.
It's Wednesday and that means it is time to answer the three Ws! What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? And what do you think you'll read next? Take a look at my answers! #WWWWednesday #BookBlogger
As some of you know, I've wanted to learn how to for quite some time. It's always been that crazy dream of mine, but I never got off my butt to do it. This year, I've decided to do something that scares me, which means I'm going to try to learn how to draw. I'm not good, but with the help of some books, I'm slowing getting better. When I saw this book offered up on Netgalley, I knew I needed to take a chance on it. I've wanted to learn how to draw, and the Chibi style is one of my favorites. I LOVE anything chibi, so I figured this one would be great to help me explore if this is a style I would enjoy drawing in.
It's Friday!!! That means it's time to participate in #FaeFriday! This week on #FaeFriday, we’re talking about sweets! Faeries are known for their love of sweets and candy. So this week’s prompt is: What is a book that was so sweet you worried you might get a cavity? I honestly don't read many books that would fall into the "sweet" category. I tend to like drama and that perfect amount of angst. I knew I was throwing myself a curveball by putting this as a prompt but, luckily for me, I went through my bookshelves, and a book I read back in 2015 jumped out at me!
It's March, and that means it's time to update you all on my Clearing The Hoard - Bookwyrm Challenge! I ended up reading Royal Elves by Misty D. Billman. I ran out of time, and I knew that there was no way I would be able to finish Persepolis while babysitting, so during nap time, I read Royal Elves. Unfortunately, I wasn't that impressed. I didn't feel connected to the characters, found some spelling errors, and almost DNF'd it in the first 20 pages. I ended up giving it two caffeinated stars because I enjoyed the plot.
