My Favourite Reads of 2018

FRo2018Hello friends! As the title says, today’s post is all about my Favourite Reads of 2018.

The beginning of 2018 turned out to be a great start of the year for me. I read quite a few books and they still make me feel things after the fact.

I know there are other people who like (or follow the trend) to narrow down their favourite reads to a certain number. For example, back in 2010-2015 people would have posts like “My top 10 books of 2010!” and the number would go higher every year. I’m not judging you if you did this yourself. If you did end up doing this, then kudos to you and I hope you had fun creating those posts. For me personally though, I don’t like narrowing down my favourite reads to a certain number. — I 100% prefer to just…let my favourite reads be my favourite reads without having to narrow them down.

With that been said, I’ve listed my 11 favourite reads out of the 156 novels I read last year.

Without a further ado, here are my favourite reads of 2018!

The Wild Hunt (Faerie Sworn, #1, and trilogy) by Ron C. Nieto22427190

Let me just say that I loved everything about this series. I genuinely enjoyed reading about the whirlwind that our main character, Lily, rode on. What I also liked about this series was that the male fae that accompanied Lily is…who he is. Haha, that was me avoiding any spoilers. (my review)

10 Notable Books I’ve Read in 2018 (So Far..)

Hello friends! —- Today’s post is about the 10 most notable books that I’ve read this year. As I’m writing this post, I’ve read 96 books so far this year. That’s a lot. It’s freakin’ June and this honestly proves how much of a social life that I don’t have. Which I’m 50% OK with, because that means that I get to read more books.

So here are the books that had some sort of impact on me, so far this year. In no particular order: Continue reading

The Wild Herald, by Ron C. Nieto | Book Review #323

The Wild Hunt is the third and final book to The Wild Hunt.
Therefore, this review might contain spoilers.

FullSizeRenderLily must continue to play the game, and the stakes are even greater as it finally comes to a close. But when all is said and done, does she have the winning hand?

She thought she was playing the Unseelie Court for her own ends; however, Lily was nothing but a pawn of the Seelie courtier, Cadowain. The fallout is devastating, but she can’t afford to mourn for her mistakes.

The most powerful weapon known to fay and men alike is on its way to the Seelie Queen, and the upcoming war is on Lily’s head. Worse, she might not live long enough to regret it if the Unseelie Queen decides to judge her for her trickery before the battle is joined.

Fay know no mercy, but they love their games. Lily is now the Herald, and her fate lies with the Wild Hunt. If she can master it, she might be able to outplay them all. The key is the Wild Horn.

Troy, the Unseelie Trickster, is on her side. Marast, the Unseelie Hunter, is still under the compulsion that makes him protect her. But will they be enough to trick the Seelie Court and hunt down the Wild Horn before it is too late?


I had no idea what to expect when I started reading The Wild Herald. In comparison to how I feel now as to when I first started the book, well, I feel like a very, very tired human. Continue reading

January 2018 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hello lovelies! This is my final post for the first month of the new year! The older I get, the faster time seems to fly by and I have no idea how to handle that… As you can see by the title, today’s post is my January 2018 Wrap Up & Book Haul! Like last month, I seem to have gotten quite a few books. February is going to be one heck of a reading month, if I can find the time to read.

I didn’t have a set TBR this month. I wanted to keep things open and be able to Continue reading

The Wild Curse (2), Faerie Hearts (2.5), by Ron C. Nieto | Book Review #312

This review contains spoilers.

IMG_5178The game is neverending in the faerie realm. It must be played constantly, and death is just the beginning of defeat.

Lily Boyd is determined to be more than a pawn in this faerie game. With the Wild Horn in her possession, she holds the key to the Wild Hunt, an unstoppable force neither human nor fay can control. The Wild Hunt has the power to unbalance the Courts in the faerie realm. It’s the perfect bargaining chip for Lily to save her grandmother, but she must play the game wisely if she hopes to succeed. On one side, she has a deal with Cadowain, a Seelie knight who vowed to help Lily in her quest. On the other side, she is at the mercy of Troy, a trickster Kelpie from the Unseelie Court who can command her at will using her True Name.

Whatever path she chooses, Lily must walk a fine line, keeping her head, wit, and words about her as she formulates a plan to find the Faerie Doctor before it’s too late. She’s playing for the win now, and to achieve that, she must live up to her new name . . . the Herald of the Wild Hunt. Continue reading

The Wild Hunt, by Ron C. Nieto | Book Review #308

IMG_5174Magic still lingers in the mist-covered corners of the world, wherever the Old Ways are remembered. However, as civilization and reason scoff at the Fair Folk, the paths to power have been forgotten by all but a few.

Lily Boyd was meant to become a faerie doctor, a warden of humans and a keeper of balance, until disbelief and pragmatism led her away from the hidden world and into a mundane life. But truth has a way to be Heard and she will be forced to face it if she wants to save her family.

Armed with nothing but her childhood memories and protected by a debt of gratitude she doesn’t understand, Lily must decide who to trust while she navigates a world that is darker and more twisted than she is prepared for.

And should she make the wrong choice, should she mistake friend and foe… the eternal balance between the Faerie Courts may shatter, and then there will be more than Lily’s life on the line.


Hello! Today’s post is my review of The Wild Hunt, by Ron C. Nieto.
If you’ve read this book, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
Enjoy! 

I had both high and low expectations for The Wild Hunt before I started reading. Continue reading

December 2017 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hello, and Happy New Year! I hope your celebrations went well, and that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

Onto the December 2018 Wrap-Up! — I didn’t have a TBR for this month, because I knew that with Chirstmas this last month, things and life in general would be incredibly hectic. Yet I managed to read 10 books! Considering it was the busy hustle-and-bustle of the Holidays and Celebrations were to be had, I did pretty well with my readings!

I bought a LOT of books in December. I only received one, which I’m not at all complaining about. I’ve read the book, and I honestly, genuinely enjoyed it. I know I’m going to re-read it this 2018 (hopefully).
