Library Reads #40

libraryrreadsLibrary 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 I expect from this novel prior to me actually reading the story. Whether what I say is a sentence long, or a few sentences. From doing these posts I hope to spread a little of my love for libraries and the stories they can give us.

Hello friends! Today I’m posting about the books I’ve borrowed recently from the libraries I go to. If you’ve read any of these books I’d love to know your thoughts on them, or maybe even link your review!

There are quite a few books in this post that I am 100% looking forward to reading. I’ve been in a Fantasy and Mystery binge lately, so if you have any recommendations hand ’em over! I love getting book recommendations.

The following books are the ones I’ve borrowed around the time of late July to the end of August.

This time around I’ve borrowed 12 books and even more manga! Continue reading

July ’18 Wrap Up + Book Haul

IMG_6383I had a TBR set up for July! I should know better than this, because it never works out for me personally. So if you set up your own little monthly TBR’s that’s great!

The books I had set up on my TBR for July was: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas, Hush Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick, Ascend by Amanda Hocking, The Beast us an Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale, and finally, The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. I unknowingly had a fantasy theme going on! Though I did not intend to have it that way…

I ended up not completing/reading all of the books on this months TBR. Of the 5 I had set out to read, I only read one. Which I’m honestly not even upset about. So these books will go back on my shelves in hopes of reading them some other time!  Continue reading

Burn Bright, by Patricia Briggs | Book Review #381

Burn Bright is the fifth (#5) book in the Alpha and Omega series by Patricia Briggs.

35839437Now mated werewolves Charles Cornick and Anna Latham face a threat like no other–one that lurks too close to home…

They are the wild and the broken. The werewolves too damaged to live safely among their own kind. For their own good, they have been exiled to the outskirts of Aspen Creek, Montana. Close enough to the Marrok’s pack to have its support; far enough away to not cause any harm.

With their Alpha out of the country, Charles and Anna are on call when an SOS comes in from the fae mate of one such wildling. Heading into the mountainous wilderness, they interrupt the abduction of the wolf–but can’t stop blood from being shed. Now Charles and Anna must use their skills–his as enforcer, hers as peacemaker–to track down the attackers, reopening a painful chapter in the past that springs from the darkest magic of the witchborn…


I have been looking forward to reading Burn Bright for I don’t know… 6 months. I love the Mercy Thompson series, but the Alpha and Omega series is close to my heart as well. Since I had been excited to read Burn Bright for 6 months, I’ve got to say that my expectations were incredibly high prior to my reading. When I started reading Burn Bright though, I was trying my best to lower those expectations since I really wanted to enjoy and love this addition to Anna and Charles’ story. Continue reading

libraryrreadsLibrary Reads: I’m a huge fan of Libraries. I tend to visit the library quite a bit, so these posts are where I document the books I’ve borrowed from the library of my hometown, or one of a few libraries that I go to. 

I’ll tell you a little bit about what I expect from the book, or the author’s writings. Whether what I say is a sentence long, or a few sentence’s. From doing these posts, I hope to spread a little bit of my love for libraries, while simultaneously informing you of books you may or may have not known of!


Hello friends! Today’s post is about the books I’ve borrowed from the library recently. There are a few so lets get into it! I borrowed these books on June 23rd, and on July 7th. Let me know if you’ve read any of these books!  Continue reading

October 2017 Wrap Up + Book Haul

Hello! Today’s post is my October 2017 Wrap Up + Book Haul!

IMG_5873October is one of the busier months for me personally. It’s busy because here in Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving on (or around) the 12th of October. Then it’s my birthday on the 25th (Two more years until my champagne birthday! Not that I’m going to drink, haha). After that, it’s Halloween!

In October I had 7 books on my TBR this month. Seven books is completely over ambitious for me, since I never really end up reading what I want to read. The books that were on my TBR this month were: The Ocean at the End of the Lane, by Neil Gaiman; Milk and Honey, by Rupi Kaur; Midnight at the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson; Shutter, by Courtney Alameda; Evil Librarian, by Michelle Knudsen; Labyrinth Lost, by Zoraida Córdova; and finally, The Madman’s Daughter, by Megan Shepherd.

September 2017 Wrap Up

unnamed

My TBR this September contained 5 books. I usually have a max of 3 books a month, since that seems to be the amount of books that I can handle. However, I got stressed and amped the books up from the usual 3 books to 5 books. Especially with reading library books, and just being busy with life in general.

The books that I had on my TBR this month (from left to right) were: I See You by Clare Mackintosh, Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody, The Beast is an Animal by Peternelle van Arsdale, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by April Genevieve Tucholke, Spider’s Bite by Jennifer Estep.

Of the 5 books I had on my TBR this month, I only managed to read 2 of them; The Daughter of the Burning City, and, Spider’s Bite. However, I did start reading I See You — but I See You is so incredibly detailed (and I’m only 10 pages in) that the book is slower than I thought it would be.

The Books I read this September (15):

The Charmer, by Autumn Dawn | Silence Fallen, by Patricia Briggs | [Mini] Book Reviews #259 & #260

Book Review

10533095Jasmine didn’t realize her friend Wiley was special until they were drawn into another world. Here Wiley is betrothed to the ruler of the Haunt, a wererace both dangerous and proud.

Keilor is the master of soldiers, a man few would cross, yet he’d never met a menace like the little brunette his princess calls friend. Will Jasmine find the portal home, or will she find a werewolf of her own?


This is a little mini-review of my re-read of The Charmer. The first time I read The Charmer I was still in high school. I was probably 15 at the time. Well, I’m currently 22 so it’s been seven years since I’ve last read The Charmer.

Overall the Charmer is a short read, I think I finished reading The Charmer in only 2 hours, maybe? The plot of the story is fast as well.

I enjoyed reading Jasmine’s story again. I think that my only wish were that the rest of the series was told in Jasmine’s point of view as well. — The rest of the series is told in different views of the exact same time line that The Charmer is told in.

I gave The Charmer, 3 of 5 stars on Goodreads.



30687916

Attacked and abducted in her home territory, Mercy finds herself in the clutches of the most powerful vampire in the world, taken as a weapon to use against alpha werewolf Adam and the ruler of the Tri-Cities vampires. In coyote form, Mercy escapes only to find herself without money, without clothing, and alone in the heart of Europe…

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which. Ancient powers stir, and Mercy must be her agile best to avoid causing a war between vampires and werewolves, and between werewolves and werewolves. And in the heart of the ancient city of Prague, old ghosts rise…


I was quickly laughing in this novel. I was legitimately laughing within the first 2 pages. Continue reading

July Wrap Up | 2017

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1Hello, everyone! Today’s post will be my Wrap-Up for July. July was an especially weird month for me, weather wise. I remember it rained for a little bit here and there. Usually in the summer months it doesn’t rain. At all. Let’s get down to it, shall we?
