January 2020 Wrap Up

IMG_8624Hello, friends! Welcome back to my little corner of the internet. 

Today I’m posting my January 2020 Wrap-Up. It’s kinda wild to think that we’re already a month in to the new decade, huh? I still can’t wrap my mind around it. 

You may or may not have noticed a couple things are different, or have changed recently, here on my blog. What I’ve changed is my GoodReads widget. Before, I had my “Current Reads” up, but I changed that to my “Recently Read” because I don’t exactly update my GoodReads “Currently Reading” thing, like, at all. But, I do change my Recently Read quite a bit in comparison!

What I’ve added to my blog is a link to my shop! If you didn’t know, I now make book sleeves, and they’re pretty cute if I do say so myself! (SHOP LINK BELOW or in the menu bar) Continue reading

White Witch, Black Curse, by Kim Harrison | Book Review

Hello lovelies, today I have my book review of

White Witch, Black Curse, by Kim Harrison.

White Witch, Black Curse is the 7th book in The Hollows series.

3475268._SY475_New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison returns to the sinister and seductive Hollows for the newest blockcuster adventure featuring Rachel Morgan, witch and bounty hunter.

White Witch, Black Curse

Some wounds take time to heal…and some scars never fade.

Rachel Morgan, kick-ass witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won’t rest until his death is solved…and avenged. Whatever the cost.

Yet the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and when a new predator moves to the apex of the Inderland food chain, Rachel’s past comes back to haunt her.

Literally.

My review for White Witch, Black Curse is short, and that’s because I binge-read like 4 books back to back. So this is what I’ve got written down for WW,BC.

I AM SO GLAD THAT WE FINALLY GET TO KNOW WHO KILLED Kisten. Finally! My questions have been answered!!

However, nearing the end of the novel Rachel remembered something from her childhood, and just….the way that the scene played out all innocently makes me think that in the next book this person will appear in the series and not in a good way. Long story short; the scene gave me a huge sense of dread.

All in all, I give White Witch, Black Curse, 4 stars.

Have you read The Hollows series?

I admit that when I read the first book, I wasn’t at all interested in the rest of the series. Though one of you lovely people suggested that I give the rest of The Hollow series a try, and well, now we’re here! Haha.

Thank you for stopping by!

See you soon, and Happy Reading!

Library Reads #47

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!
