My 10 Best Reads of 2016

Hello everyone! Lots of things have happened this year. Whether it be good or bad. — I’m not here to talk about what happened this year though. I’m here to talk about books because this book blog is one of my happy places.

Reading wise, there were a lot of firsts for me last year. For instance: I started reading YA Mystery. I don’t typically enjoy mystery. Continue reading

Touch of Frost, by Jennifer Estep | Book Review #154

My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy; a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz 9439989kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest. But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why; especially since I should have been the one who died…

I’ve been wanting to read Touch of Frost for a while now since I accidentally borrowed the second book “Kiss of Frost” from the library. I really think that libraries should start putting “Book One” or “Book Two” on their books when they get a series. It’d make borrowing books way easier!

Since I really like mythology, Touch of Frost was a perfect fit for me. I loved the action that was involved, and the growth that the main character, Gwen, goes through is awesome.

There are some triggers for this book, as there seems to be with every book I’ve been reading lately..

Trigger Warnings: Blood, Abuse, Car Accident Resulting in Death, Murder, & Attempted Murder. Continue reading

Library Reads: I’m a Library Lover, so these posts are where I document the books I’ve borrowed from libraries. 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 of my love for libraries, while also informing you of books that you may or may not have known of! Continue reading
