Hello, reader(s)! Welcome to my last post for 2019! It’s wild that 2019 has gone by extremely quickly. No? I can’t even remember the first 10 months, haha.

Beyond 2019 moving quickly, December absolutely flew by! Though December always flies by every year. This month I actually read more than I thought I did! Which is honestly a great thing. I’ve got to stay sane somehow ya know? Haha.

A Fistful of Charms, by Kim Harrison | Book Review

Hello friends, today I have my book review of 

A Fistful of Charms, by Kim Harrison.

A Fistful of Charms is the 4th book in The Hollows series.

2365896The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her — not necessarily in that order.

Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses — savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.

Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. And suddenly more than Rachel’s soul is at stake.

When I say that there was so much that happened in this 4th book, I meant it, 1000000%. There was so much happening, I couldn’t even think straight. Continue reading

October 2019 Wrap-Up

Hello friends! Welcome to another one of my monthly wrap-ups.

I want to include some cute and witty banter, but honestly, I’ve got nothing😂. October, as per usual, was a particularly busy month for me, as it usually is every single year. Since I live in Canada, we had our Thanksgiving, friends giving, autumn turn over supper, in October! Then there were a few birthdays (including mine), and then it was Halloween.

So really, this past October was over and done before it had even begun.

What was your October like?

Library Reads #45

library readsHELLO FRIENDS! TODAY I’M TALKING A LITTLE ABOUT THE BOOKS I’VE BORROWED RECENTLY FROM THE LIBRARY.

Library Reads: I’m a huge fan of libraries. I tend to visit the library quite often, and I even come across great finds. These Library Reads posts are where I write a tad about the books I’ve borrowed.

In this post I’ll write about what books I borrowed, and what I think of the books before I actually start reading them. Whether what I say is a sentence or a few sentences long, here I catalogue the books I’ve borrowed. — From doing these posts I hope to spread a little love for libraries and the stories they can give us.

HERE ARE THE BOOKS I BORROWED FROM THE LIBRARY RECENTLY!

Enjoy! Continue reading
