I want all the books

I was placing an order on Amazon the other night and after a solid hour of wishful thinking book stalking, I was led to a kindle unlimited ad. I’ve avoided kindle unlimited so far because I didn’t think it would be worth the cost, but it was a two month free trial. How could I actually pass that by… It would be crazy of me not to use this opportunity to see what it has to offer.

Apparently my ever growing piles of books and backlog of NetGalley arcs weren’t enough to make me pause, I dove in with a level of excitement I usually reserve for cake and cats. Continue reading “I want all the books”

May Wrap-Up

Here we are at the end of the month. I’ve been traversing through the fantasy worlds and ignoring the reviewing part that comes with being a blogger. I got lost a couple of times, as even with a clear map, I get distracted by all things bright and shiny. A big thank you to our fearless leaders Imyrl, Lisa, and Jorie, I am already looking forward to next year. Continue reading “May Wrap-Up”

Stacking The Shelves

The Olympic Games

Olympic Games Logo

In June I’m going to be participating in a reading challenge inspired by the Percy Jackson series. The Olympic Games is a fun way to come up with a TBR for the month and distract myself from all the reviews I have yet to write up. I have serious reviewers block and a serious backlog of reviews that need to be written up. Anyway, this challenge has been created by ISHI and if you click her name it will take you to her video. She is joined by a team of hosts and the challenge can take place across all platforms. The effort that has gone into the set up of this is amazing.

How does the challenge work? You take the quiz to determine your cabin and then follow the reading prompts for the god your representing. There are 5 prompts for each god and once those are completed you have the option of completing the advanced prompts.

The Lessons Never Learned by Rob J. Hayes

I have been trying to write this review for over a month. Not only have I been in the middle of a blogging lull, but I find it really hard to write reviews for books that are the second in a series. Add on loving it and I fold under the pressure. So on that note I’m going to push through my reviewer block and get the fangirling started. Oh and there will be spoilers for Along The Razor’s Edge, (review), I will do my best to keep them to a minimum.

Story Magic by Laurel Gale

Story magic by Laurel GaleIn a world where females are banned from telling stories and stories are never told for entertainment, we have the Listeners. If they are told a story and they like it they can help you with magic. 12 year old Kaya knows that she isn’t to tell stories or something bad will happen, but after feeling the tingle on her neck telling her a Listener is nearby, she takes a breath and shares a story. The Listener repays her story with a little bit of magic. But when her brother is taken to a nearby city to be interrogated, she knows deep down that this is her fault and that she must do everything she can to save him.

I just looked it up and the last time I did one of these posts was on March 1st. So to make this look less outrageous I’m splitting it up into two. One for my birthday haul and then another for the rest of the books I’ve accumulated along the way. Continue reading “Stacking The Shelves”
