Review: Lakesedge

I’m not going to lie, when I got an email with a link to download this book from the publisher, I didn’t even read the synopsis. I saw this gorgeous cover and added it to my kindle without a second thought. I know they say never judge a book by its cover, but this is the exception because this cover perfectly describes the vibes of this book and oh my gosh, it’s so good!

Review: Beasts of Prey

Penguin Teen hyped up this book so much! I was so excited for it, I snagged it when they offered it to me and couldn’t wait to start reading. But I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sucked into it like I thought I would be. This was more of a slow intro, a book to take your time with, and then, when everything is set up, then the fun begins.

Review: Gild

All of my friends are hopping on the NA/Adult Fantasy Romance train (aka fantasy with a sprinkle of spice/smut) and Gild was one my friends could not stop talking about. Two of my friends work at Barnes & Noble (which is half the reason I’ve been buying so many books) and they shoved this book into my hands and told me to read it. So, I read it. And I really liked it. So much that I went back a few days later to pick up the sequel!

WWW Wednesday (9/22/21)

Happy Wednesday! I visited some family on Monday and Tuesday and had so much fun. I didn’t get much reading done, but I managed to get through some books over the weekend, so here’s a quick update on what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I want to read next!

Review: The Other Merlin

I read a sample of this book on BookishFirst, and while I didn’t win a copy, I did find a book that I was dying to read! The sample was so good and immediately peaked my interest. I was so happy when Penguin Teen offered this as a book I could download for review, I immediately jumped on it.

Review: Iron Widow

Holy. Shit.

I just finished this book. My mind is blown. I didn’t think I could read a book so intense with an ending that made me want to scream, but here I am. Literally screaming.

Sept ’21 Mid-Month Update

Hey everyone! It’s the middle of September and life has been crazy for me.

There are a lot of Jewish holidays in September and we’ve already made it through Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur already, so the big two are done! I’m actually heading up to Queens to visit some of my in-laws for another holiday, Sukkot, this weekend and I’m really excited. I know it’s going to be a good time, I’m just a little stressed to leave my two kitties at home alone.

In terms of reading, this month has been going pretty smoothly. I haven’t blown through books like I wish I could, but I don’t think I’m falling behind. I’m right where I’m supposed to be – I think. Anyways, here’s what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I want to read for the rest of September!

Review: The Lost Girls (A Vampire Revenge Story)

Vampires are back and I love the direction Sonia took this story. From the first chapter, I was invested in forever 16 y/o Holly who has to work at Taco Bell because she decided to be turned into a vampire and can’t manage to get a job anywhere else.

I loved the story, but for the love of God, publishers PLEASE allow the pdfs to be sent to kindle! I had to read this on my laptop, which isn’t the worst thing in the world, but it was seriously annoying. I would have much rather read this on my iPad or phone where I can at least take it around with me, instead of having to remain somewhat stationary. So for future reference, please don’t force me to read this on my laptop, please and thank you!

Review: The Corpse Queen

I love the cover of this book and how simple, yet eerie it is. I wasn’t sure how scary or intense this book was going to be, but it ended up being really good and not too much! I love the historical fiction elements, the murder mystery, and the female empowerment all wrapped up into one book.

Review: The Inheritance of Orquídea Divina

Thank you to Goodreads and the publisher for selecting me as a winner for this book! I was drawn in by the cover alone and the description just sealed the deal for me, so I was so happy when I won a copy! I went into this story semi-blind, open to what was going to happen, and I absolutely loved it. I can’t even articulate how much I loved this book and how hard it was for me to finish it, I did not want this story to end.

Review: The Girls Are Never Gone

Okay, listen. I know I’ve been reading a lot of paranormal thrillers (I mean, come on, they’re so good!) and I know we’re ready for some new genres, but listen. LISTEN! This book is so, so good and it just came out on Tuesday, so you need to do me a favor and pick it up ASAP!!!

WWW Wednesday (9/1/21)

It feels weird to be doing a WWW Wednesday on the first of the month, but don’t worry, I’ll be posting my August wrap up hopefully later today! This week has been really good, but very hectic, because I finished my monthly TBR and somehow managed to read another book on top of that! I don’t know the last time I finished my monthly TBR, but I’m so happy I finally did – now onto September’s TBR, which you can check out here if you haven’t seen it yet!

Sept ’21 TBR

Hey everyone! Since it’s the end of the month, I’m back again with my TBR for next month and there are some fun ones on the list!

September is an interesting month because while I have some ARCs I need to read, it is way more manageable than August. August and October are my busiest ARC months, so September is my break from the craziness. So without further ado, here are some of the books I want to read in September!
