39863092The Right Swipe by Alisha Rai
July 2 2019

Alisha Rai returns with the first book in her sizzling new Modern Love series, in which two rival dating app creators find themselves at odds in the boardroom but in sync in the bedroom.

Rhiannon Hunter may have revolutionized romance in the digital world, but in real life she only swipes right on her career—and the occasional hookup. The cynical dating app creator controls her love life with a few key rules:

– Nude pics are by invitation only

– If someone stands you up, block them with extreme prejudice

– Protect your heart

Only there aren’t any rules to govern her attraction to her newest match, former pro-football player Samson Lima. The sexy and seemingly sweet hunk woos her one magical night… and disappears.

Rhi thought she’d buried her hurt over Samson ghosting her, until he suddenly surfaces months later, still big, still beautiful—and in league with a business rival. He says he won’t fumble their second chance, but she’s wary. A temporary physical partnership is one thing, but a merger of hearts? Surely that’s too high a risk…


42505366Wilder Girls by Rory Power
July 9 2019

It’s been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty’s life out from under her.

It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don’t dare wander outside the school’s fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything.

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there’s more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.

42455873The Wedding Party by Jasmine Guillory
July 16 2019

The new exhilarating romance from The New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal!

Maddie and Theo have two things in common:

1. Alexa is their best friend
2. They hate each other

After an “oops, we made a mistake” night together, neither one can stop thinking about the other. With Alexa’s wedding rapidly approaching, Maddie and Theo both share bridal party responsibilities that require more interaction with each other than they’re comfortable with. Underneath the sharp barbs they toss at each other is a simmering attraction that won’t fade. It builds until they find themselves sneaking off together to release some tension when Alexa isn’t looking, agreeing they would end it once the wedding is over. When it’s suddenly pushed up and they only have a few months left of secret rendezvouses, they find themselves regretting that the end is near. Two people this different can’t possibly have a connection other than the purely physical, right?

But as with any engagement with a nemesis, there are unspoken rules that must be abided by. First and foremost, don’t fall in love.

42201395Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson
June 4 2019

All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather. She hopes to become a warden, charged with protecting the kingdom from their power.

Then an act of sabotage releases the library’s most dangerous grimoire. Elisabeth’s desperate intervention implicates her in the crime, and she is torn from her home to face justice in the capital. With no one to turn to but her sworn enemy, the sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, and his mysterious demonic servant, she finds herself entangled in a centuries-old conspiracy. Not only could the Great Libraries go up in flames, but the world along with them.

As her alliance with Nathaniel grows stronger, Elisabeth starts to question everything she’s been taught—about sorcerers, about the libraries she loves, even about herself. For Elisabeth has a power she has never guessed, and a future she could never have imagined.

Waiting For Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey

An ARC was provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Waiting For Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfrey THIS WAS SO ADORABLE AND CUTE!!! I’ve seen a couple of my friends give it a low rating and I can see why some people wouldn’t enjoy it. That wasn’t the case for me. This book is basically a long homage to romantic comedies, which made me realize I have not watched a lot of the movies mentioned, and I quickly wrote them all down to add to my Netflix queue.

This story follows Annie, a screenwriter who is obsessed with rom- coms and finding true love. She especially loves Nora Ephron/Tom Hanks movies, and therefore has very high standards when it comes to men. She wants to meet a kind, loving man with some cut quirks and helps make her life complete. A movie director she admires in coming to town to film his latest movie, luckily for Annie, her uncle knows him. Landing her a job as his assistant. One downside to this job is it puts her in close proximity to Drew Danforth. A heart throb movie star, which she very much dislikes.

Of course following the Rom-Com formula this book has all the fun classic cliches, from an awkward hilarious meet-cute, the denying or the feelings, misunderstanding, and finally the grand gesture. Annie and Drew were so easy to root for, and there relationship developed was paced quite nicely.

This book also has an amazing cats of side characters, Annie’s Uncle is a huge comic fan who plays weekly games of D&D. Then we have Annie’s best friend Chloe, she is fun and spunky. I really liked their friendship, Chloe would call out Annie on her expectations of love. Telling her nothing happens like they do in the movies that she should try and live her life,go on some dates. And Nick, he  reminded so much of Luke from Gilmore Girls, which instantly made him one of my favorite side characters. As some of you know Gilmore Girls is my all time favorite show and I love Luke. Nick is the owner of a local coffee shop, where everyone is town seems to gather on a daily basis. Oh, and Chloe works at the coffee shop as well, and I really hope that Chloe and Nick will have a companion novel!

The ending felt a little rushed and there were a few moments where I was really annoyed with Annie. Which is why it only got a four star rating and not a five.This book had me smiling throughout the whole story. Waiting For Tom Hanks is the perfect fun summer beach read!

Wilder Girls by Rory Powers

I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Trigger and Content Warning: Graphic Violence, gore, blood,body horror,death,reference to self harm,starvation,reference to suicide and not consenting to medical procedures. 

Wilder Girls has been everywhere lately, with its gorgeous cover to amazing synopsis. I have to say this cover is probably my favorite cover of the whole year.I’m going to need all the sapphic horror books from now on. The female-female relationship in this book was everything! I loved these girls so much and was horrified for what they were going through.

The books follows three girls,Hetty, Byatt and Resse, while there boarding school is under a quarantine. The Raxter school is located off the coast of a Naval base on an isolated island in Maine, the once popular school now sits deteriorating due to a mysterious affliction called the tox. This disease has wiped out all but two teacher and about 40 girls, with terrible affects caused by the tox. The Navy and the CDC has issued a quarantine where everyone must remain in the school grounds except for the boat girls who travel to the water and pick up supplies with one of the teachers. However they do not send nearly enough food or other supplies, many of the girls go hungry as there outbreaks continue to get worse. The CDC promises they are working on a cure but if the quarantine is breached they will stop helping.

Some days it’s fine. Others it nearly breaks me. The emptiness of the horizon, and the hunger in my body, and how will we ever survive this if we can’t survive each other? “We’re gonna make it. Tell me we’re gonna make it.”

The outbreaks are different for each person leaving behind a physical affliction of the tox, but what is the same is the intensity and email drain it leaves them all with. Some girls have brightly glowing hair with silver scales on there arms, and some have more grotesque disfigurations such as bones protruding from the skin or feeling of something crawling behind there eye.

“We’ve all lost things, eyes and hands and last names.” 

Rory power’s writing is beautiful yet it does a fantastic job at making your skin crawl, with it’s deliberate descriptive details. Power’s does not hold back on the horror scenes, as a horror movie lover I found some of the horror to be tame but to others it can be quite triggering. That being said this was one of the most unique young adult novels I had the pleasure of reading.

I ended up only giving Wilder Girls a 4 star rating because I felt like the ending was a bit rushed and slightly unfinished. We were left with so many un -answered questions. Many horror films also tend to have no closure at the end, and leaves us wondering what will happen to the remaining characters. I guess that’s how the mystery continues and leaves us thinking about the book long after were finished reading. I originally thought this book was the first of a series but then later on found out it was a standalone.

“We don’t get to choose what hurts us.”

This book had so many things i liked about it, queer girls,boarding school,creepy animals and horror. I highly recommend picking up Wilder Girls, you will not be disappointed.

Buddy Read with Alexis.

The quotes above were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publication.

Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

Trigger and Content Warning:  Depression, Self-Harm,Violence,

I really LOVED this book! The Storm Crow is filled with the potential to be a great, captivating series. It’s gripping within the first chapter, the characters are all amazing and the magic is uniquely written. With a large variety of majestic crows that can control the elements they provide everything needed for it’s country.  The crows gave me major  How to Train your Dragon vibes. Josephson has created such a rich and gorgeous world!

“It’s difficult to walk against the wind. It takes strength.”

The story begins in Rhodaire,a magical kingdom where the elemental crows reside. Everything happens so quickly in the first chapter,Rhodaire is attacked by Illucia during the crow hatching festival. The queen,some other residents and the crows are killed and the kingdom is left in ruins. The crows being gone changes everything as the residents relied on them for their way of life, the kingdoms continues to suffer. Enter our protagonist Anthia, princess of Rhodaire, when her sister announces she is to marry the prince of the kingdom who destroyed them she is desperate to escape. As luck would have it she finds a crow’s egg. When Thia and Ericen set off for Illicia  she takes Kiva along with her and the egg.

“A storm. A tempest of lightning and thunder with the kind of heart found only in legends. A heart full of kindness and courage and strength.”

Anthia “Thia” : She is the princess of Rhodaire described as having brown skin tone ,and a born crow rider.She suffers from depression, the way its written was so well done,I have never read a fantasy novel that talked about depression before.Josephson does not sugar coat how crippling depression can be. I love how she continue to strive to help her country and overcome her negative feelings. I related to Thia in many ways.I especially loved her connection and passion for the crows.To help create a truce between Rhodaire and Illucia Thia is to wed their Prince.

Kiva: Is Thia’s best friend,she is also a warrior who is assigned to protect the princess. Kiva and Thias friendship was everything! They have such love for each other, and their fierce loyalty. Kiva has also begun to develop a relationship with servant girl, I am anticipating such a cute romance in the sequel!

Ericen: Prince of Illucia, described as having pale skin, he is very sassy and reminds me a little of Rhysand which I’m so here for! I had a good feeling about him from the start even though he comes off as rude to Thia, I am cheering them on from the sidelines. I think there is more to him than we see right now.

Caylen: He is sweet and has some really cute moments, but I am not feeling him like I am Ericen. I felt like the romance between him and Thia was not necessary, but the author seems to be building up towards a long triangle.It honestly feels like she just fell for Caylus because he wasn’t an Illucian. It felt like he didn’t have much of a personality and  Ericen is clearly the better choice.

“People are their truest selves at their most desperate.”

This is the first fantasy I have read in a long time that had me completely immersed into the story and I flew through this book.  At times it was a little predictable but It was a great first book in a series. I highly recommend picking this book up when it comes out and I am very much looking forward to the sequel as I have a feeling it’s going to be amazing!

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Trigger warnings: talks of suicide, mental illness, depression, stalking, cheating, loss of a parent, abuse from a parent.

This book is Alex Michaelides debut novel and it is one twist after another. this novel had me captivated from start to finish. Daaaamn. I did not see that ending coming! I went in pretty much blind, I didn’t know anything about it other than the main character didn’t speak.The Silent Patient is not a long novel but don’t let that fool you into thinking there isn’t that much going on. I really recommend this book.

“There’s so much pain everywhere, and we just close our eyes to it.
The truth is we’re all scared. We’re terrified of each other.”

Alicia and her husband Gabriel look like they are the perfect couple. Alicia is an aspiring painter and Gabriel is a fashion photographer. There young, beautiful,there careers are kicking off and there crazy about each other. But this book isn’t a love story it’s a thriller, soon we find Alicia standing over her dead husbands body and covered in both of their blood. As everyone struggles to understand why she would do this, their met with a dead end. Alicia is refusing to utter a word, she sits by as she is sentenced guilty to killing the man she loved, she continues to sit silently. She is saved from the death penalty and instead put in a psychiatric hospital, where she still is not speaking.

Theo Farber is a criminal psychotherapist, who is interested in Alicia’s case and is determined to find out what happened that night her husband was murdered. He accepts a new job at The Grove the mental hospital where Alicia was assigned. He is determined to get her speaking again, through therapy and building a trusting rapport.The book is told almost entirely from Theo’s perspective with some flashbacks from Alicia’s journal.

“You become increasingly comfortable with madness – and not just the madness of others, but your own. We’re all crazy, I believe, just in different ways.”

I really enjoyed this book. It has definitely lived up to its reputation as a page turner. I listened to this on audiobook and it was fantastic, the voice actors were so good and pulled you right into the story.

Buddy read with Amy and Amber!

April Wrap Up

Hey, loves! I know this is so late! I  have been slacking with reviewing and commenting, but hopefully I’ll get that caught up soon. In May I have a lot of blog posts already planned out and many are drafted so I have a really good feeling about this month.

So to get to the books that I read during the month of April. I read some fantasy books this month which I feel great about as it’s my favorite genre but I have been struggling to get into lately, I give many thanks to the lovely ladies who buddy read with me! I have some varied ratings with the books I read starting from 2 stars up to 4 stars. Okay let’s stop talking and get into what books I read in the month of April!

(Like always, you can click the links in each of the titles to read a more in-depth review of each book.)

Caraval by Stephanie Garber – ★★★★

This was a re-read, because I really wanted to get to Legendary before Finale was released. This time around I read this book via audiobook and it was just as amazing as the first time I read it. This book was just absolutely ENCHANTING! From the very first page up until the last, there was never a dull moment.I got to fall in love with the characters all over again. Stephanie Garber is an incredibly talented author, and a master at weaving beautiful lyrical words.

Legendary by Stephanie Garber – ★★★★★

It has taken me over a year to read Legendary, and I am so happy to have finally read the sequel to Caraval. This book is on my must reads of 2019 and I can now say that I love this book so much! I loved being back in this world, Caraval was such a magical story and Legendary was no different. The romance in this book, I was completely living for it! And that ending!?! The big reveal took me by surprise because it felt a little to obvious so I wasn’t expecting it. Needless to say I am beyond excited for Finale!!

Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kauffman – ★★

I want to start this review by saying that I was very fortunate to have been given a EARC, I swear that my neighbors could hear me cheering. With that said, this book disappointed me so much! I really wanted to love it and I really didn’t like it until the last 30% of the book. I loved Jay and Amie’s Illuminae Files and I do enjoy there writing. I just wasn’t connecting with the story.This book was a huge miss for me, I know there is a lot of high praise already. I know I’ll probably get some hate for this but no one is more disappointed with my feelings than I am.

Five Feet Apart by Rachael Lippincott – ★★.5

I originally rated this book a three but I took it down to two and a half stars. I only read this book because I want to see the movie. And I only want to see the movie because of Cole Sprouse. Anyway this book is about two teens living with cystic fibrosis, and there relationship. The story overall I enjoyed it, i found it entertaining but the writing was so cringe worthy. I love beautiful prose and this definitely want it.

The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson – ★★★★

I really LOVED this book! The Storm Crow is filled with the potential to be a great, captivating series. It’s gripping within the first chapter, the characters are all amazing and the magic is uniquely written. With a large variety of majestic crows that can control the elements they provide everything needed for it’s country.  The crows gave me major  How to Train your Dragon vibes. Josephson has created such a rich and gorgeous world!

My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing – ★★★★

My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

I received an ARC from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

I have been unimpressed with thrillers lately both oh boy did this one deliver. If you’re a fan of Dexter, than you are going to love this book. Power couple, serial killers, that’s all I needed to know to pick up this book.This is a brilliant debut novel by Samantha Downing. I simply couldn’t get enough of this book, and I loved every minute of it.

“Officially, the Oaks is one of the safest communities in the state. That’s because all the violence is behind closed doors.”

I’m not going to go to much into the plot because the the best way to read thrillers, but here is a brief description. This book is told from the perspective of the unnamed husband, and centers around seeing the whole story from the perspective of the killers. Millicent and her husband have two children Rory and Jenna and they live in the suburbs. They look like everyone else in the neighborhood, a normal family. Millicent works in real estate and the husband is a tennis instructor at the country club. But they are hiding some very dark secrets, instead of role playing to spice things up, they indulge in murder.

The husband gives the reader a play by play of how the event unfold, while giving us a look at his inner dialogue and twisted thoughts. This book is so twisted, I was unable to put it down. Just when you think you have everything figured out Downing throws us upside down. I loved the tone of the story, it includes so dark humor that I often found myself smiling at the most inappropriate times.

If your looking for a book you cant put down, I would pick up My Lovely Wife and be prepared for a wild ride! I can’t wait to see what Samantha Downing comes up with next, this was an incredible debut.

May Anticipated Releases of 2019 Part 2

41438037Dark Shores by Danielle L. Jensen
May 7 2019

Piracy, blackmail, and meddling gods meet in Dark Shores, a thrilling first novel in a fast-paced new YA fantasy series by Danielle L. Jensen.

A PIRATE WITH A WILL OF IRON
Teriana is the second mate of the Quincense, a ship beholden to the Goddess of the Seas. Her people are born of the waves, and they alone know how to cross the impassable oceans between East and West.

A SOLDIER WITH A SECRET
Marcus is the commander of the Thirty-Seventh, the notorious legion that has led the Celendor Empire to conquer the entire East. The legion is his only family, and even they don’t know the secret he’s been hiding since childhood.

A DANGEROUS QUEST
When a power-hungry ruler captures Teriana’s crew and threatens to reveal Marcus’s secret unless they help him conquer the unknown West, the two are forced into an unlikely–and unwilling– alliance. They unite for the sake of their families, but both must decide how far they are willing to go, and how much they are willing to sacrifice.


30075662Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman
May 7 2019

From the internationally bestselling authors of THE ILLUMINAE FILES comes an epic new science fiction adventure.

The year is 2380, and the graduating cadets of Aurora Academy are being assigned their first missions. Star pupil Tyler Jones is ready to recruit the squad of his dreams, but his own boneheaded heroism sees him stuck with the dregs nobody else in the Academy would touch…

A cocky diplomat with a black belt in sarcasm
A sociopath scientist with a fondness for shooting her bunkmates
A smart-ass techwiz with the galaxy’s biggest chip on his shoulder
An alien warrior with anger management issues
A tomboy pilot who’s totally not into him, in case you were wondering

And Ty’s squad isn’t even his biggest problem—that’d be Aurora Jie-Lin O’Malley, the girl he’s just rescued from interdimensional space. Trapped in cryo-sleep for two centuries, Auri is a girl out of time and out of her depth. But she could be the catalyst that starts a war millions of years in the making, and Tyler’s squad of losers, discipline-cases and misfits might just be the last hope for the entire galaxy.

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic.

May 7 2019

Welcome, welcome to Finale, the third and final book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Caraval series!

Welcome, welcome to Caraval…all games must come to an end.

It’s been two months since the last Caraval concluded, two months since the Fates have been freed from an enchanted deck of cards, two months since Tella has seen Legend, and two months since Legend claimed the empire’s throne as his own. Now, Legend is preparing for his official coronation and Tella is determined to stop it. She believes her own mother, who still remains in an enchanted sleep, is the rightful heir to the throne.

Meanwhile, Scarlett has started a game of her own. She’s challenged Julian and her former fiancé, Count Nicolas d’Arcy, to a competition where the winner will receive her hand in marriage. Finaly, Scarlett feels as if she is in complete control over her life and future. She is unaware that her mother’s past has put her in the greatest danger of all.

Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun―with lives, empires, and hearts all at stake. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win…and those who will lose everything.

Centuries later, Eliana Ferracora grapples with her new reality: She is the Sun Queen, humanity’s long-awaited savior. But fear of corruption — fear of becoming another Rielle — keeps Eliana’s power dangerous and unpredictable. Hunted by all, racing against time to save her dying friend Navi, Eliana must decide how to wear a crown she never wanted — by embracing her mother’s power, or rejecting it forever.
