#FaeFriday | Giving Thanks

Okay, I am late. Like really really really late with Fae Friday. I’m so sorry, but life has been incredibly exhausting right now. But today in the fae realm is all about faeries hating to be thanked. That is why the prompt this week is:

Do you read the acknowledgment section in the books you’re reading, and why?

Review | The Truest Thing

The Truest Thing by Samantha Young

Samantha Young has been a staple author for me. I’ve been reading her books since 2012 when I found her book, On Dublin Street. I’ve been an avid reader since. The Truest Thing is the 4th book in her Hart’s Boardwalk series and features a character that I just couldn’t like.

#FaeFriday | 9.4.2020

Faeries are known to have exceptionally long lives, and in curtain lore, they’re immortal. The prompt this week is inspired by longevity. This week this curious wannabe fae wants to know: What is the longest/largest book you have read?

August 2020 | Wrap-Up

Wow, it has been a while since I wrote one of these wrap-up posts. First off, sorry about that, but with the world going to crap & my aunt dying, I didn’t have the energy to do much reading nor blogging. I’m finally getting to a better state of mind, so I figured it was time to write my wrap-up.

Review | Deal With The Devil

This book was everything I wanted and more. I’ve loved Kit Rocha since I found their Beyond series, so when I saw Tor picked up this book, I was so excited. I couldn’t wait to read this book. It’s honestly everything that I would have wanted. I’m delighted that MacMillian removed the ebook embargo so that I didn’t have to wait three months to read it. But trust me, this book would have been worth the wait.

Review | Take a Hint, Dani Brown

As many of you know, Talia Hibbert quickly became one of my favorite romance authors last year. So, I was extremely excited to get the ARC of Take a Hint, Dani Brown. Unfortunately, due to a death in the family, this book went to the back burner. I finally found the energy to read, but my focus was all over the place. Instead of reading the ARC, I bought the audiobook from Libro.fm and dived in.

Review | Sleeping With Shadows by Rachel Hailey

When Rachel approached me to read this advanced reader copy, I jumped at the chance! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I love paranormal books. I was extremely excited to jump in and see where this book took me. The one thing that I loved the most about this book was the world. Rachel knows how to make a mysterious world where faeries and supernatural beings exist. I also loved that she played with the various types of fae and didn’t go the Tinkerbell route. I found myself enthralled by the world and the different creatures.

Review | Devolution by Max Brooks

When I saw that Max Brooks had a new book out, I had to jump out and request it from NetGalley! World War Z is one of the top books I have read and one that I always recommend, so I couldn’t wait to get started on Devolution! Unfortunately, life happened, and I couldn’t seem to focus enough to pick this book up. Luckily, Libro.FM came swooping in with this audiobook as an option for their influencer program.

Review | Black Tangled Heart by Samantha Young

Black Tangled Heart lives up to its title. Each character is tangled up with pain to the point where I questioned if some of the characters were redeemable. In the first half of the book, we got to see Jane and Jamie grow up, and I loved watching their relationship flourish. Both characters were well written, and I enjoyed seeing them grow up. With that said, I have to say that I struggled to read some of the sexual scenes.

Review | The Happy Ever After Playlist

The Happy Ever After Playlist is the first Abby Jimenez book that I have read. It can be read as a standalone, which made me happy seeing as Libro.fm gave me this one as part of their influencer program. Luckily for me, I didn’t look at the narrators. Look, so many people LOVE Erin Mallon, but I don’t. Her narrations of female characters tend to grate on my nerves. I tend to avoid any of the books she narrates, which makes me sad because she narrates some fantastic books. With all that said, I found that if I speed up her narrations, she isn’t terrible. Zachary Weber, as always, was fantastic.
