Top Ten of 2016!

It has been so nice to be on a small break for the holidays but with the new year fast approaching, I had to do one last post all about books and what better post than those outstanding reads of 2016 that really stood out and impacted me in some way or another. So, without further ado, my top ten reads of the year.

To see all my favorite reads from the year check out this tab HERE

It was really hard to narrow this down to ten reads but when I really thought about it, these are the ones that stood out to me the most. They may not be classics or even the most well written or political but they were ones that either changed my views on certain things, impacted me emotionally, or just ones that I plain and simply had fun with. 

In no particular order here they are:

The Others by Anne Bishop. I have loved this series from the very beginning and it really is like no other. It will be so very very hard to say goodbye to it when the last book releases in March, I am not ready to say goodbye to any of these characters yet and I don't think I ever will be. 

The Passage trilogy by Justin Cronin, I admit, I'm so glad I waited to start this series so I didn't have to wait three long years for the last book but even if I would of had to, let me tell you, it would have been worth it. I loved every single minute of it and one that I am so happy I took the time (with each book over 800 pages it was a lot of time!) to read and love. 

The Red Rising trilogy by Pierce Brown. One of the very few YA series out there that not only didn't read like a YA series but also ended so well. Let's face it, in trilogies lately, especially in YA, more often than not, that last book is a stinker and almost makes you regret starting the series at all but this wasn't like that at. All. It was fabulous and I couldn't of been happier with all of it. If you haven't tried this one yet, run and do it, so worth it. 

The Deadwood Humorous Mystery series by Ann Charles. I'm ashamed to admit I've had the first book in my TBR pile when it was first released, oh about 5 years ago (ahem, so embarrassing) and for whatever reason never got around to them but I'm kind of glad I did wait because now with seven books out and a couple of shorts, I can totally binge read them and this is a series you want to binge read. It is so much dang fun! In fact Doc, just might be my new book boyfriend. This series has a little bit of everything in it. Romance, mystery, a paranormal edge, adventure, and lots and lots of humor. I just adore it. 

I don't read a ton of historical but when I do, I'm very picky about it and Julianne Donaldson is one of the best out there. In fact, I read her other novel Blackmore and loved it just as much, so, Darn. Good. I can't wait for her new release next year, it can't get here fast enough! 

Cainsville series by Kelley Armstrong. I already knew Kelley was a genius when it came to unique world building and lovable characters but if I did have any doubt before, this series but it to rest. I have adored it and been hooked on it from the very beginning and I just can't get enough of it. It is one of the few series I have no issues at all with paying the ridiculous kindle price for, I love it that much. 

Speaking of Armstrong, good thing she also has this new series out to keep me occupied with I wait for her Cainsville because it too, is just fabulous and after the first book, I too am already hooked on it. I adore this kooky town and the kooky characters and the mystery aspect always keeps me on my toes and keeps me guessing and turning the pages right up until the very end. 

The Graveyard Queen series by Amanda Stevens. I too have loved this series from the very first book and they just get better as they go. These are ones that once I pick them up, they are so very hard to put down and they are perfect for when you want a little romance, a little mystery and a whole lot of scary! They are so good, if you haven't tried them, please do. This series needs more love, they are just wonderful and very underrated. 

I have to mention this series because once again, it is one that I get hooked on when ever I pick them up, The Ellie Jordan Ghost Trapper Series by J.L. Bryan
I love how spooky it is and how much the characters have grown over the course of the series. It's just an addicting series that has it's lighter moments along with the darker and I love the mix of the two. If you haven't tried it yet definitely do so and the first book is still free on Amazon right now so you have nothing at all to lose by trying it. 

What can I say about the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas that probably hasn't already been said before? Seriously Sarah is just an amazing author. The world she has built here is both fantastical and completely believable with characters that are every bit as addicting as her writing style. It continues to be one of my favorites and I can't wait to see how the last two books will all play out.

I have so many other series and books that I want to add to this list, truly I've been very lucky this year and have read a ton of great reads but these are the ones that days, weeks, months even,  after putting them down and finishing them, I still think about them and wonder what will be in store for the characters next, even the ones that were stand alone reads. I truly hope the new year will bring just as many fantastic reads for everyone.

I hope you all have a safe and amazing New Year!!

WoW Pick of the Week!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.

I fell in love with this series after the first book and was completely and utterly hooked. I can not wait for this next installment and I'm hoping like heck it won't be the last one. Seriously, if you haven't tried it yet, do it, now, run! Truly, so. Freaking. Good.

Book Description:

New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shapeshifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves…

After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders—a primitive and lethal form of the Others—the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no-man’s-land beyond their borders—and the darkness…

As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery’s shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings.

With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end—with her standing beside a grave.

Blog Tour Book Review: Island of Glass by Nora Roberts

I'm so excited to be a part of the Island of Glass blog tour because not only do I love Nora but, I've loved this trilogy from the very beginning and I couldn't of asked for a better ending to it. Nora's PNRs are always fun but this was definitely a favorite, it is sad to see it end but so satisfying with the way it did end. I strongly urge you to check it out if you haven't yet.

Released Date: December 6, 2016
Published By: Berkley
Book Three in the Guardians Trilogy
(ARC copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.)

Book Description:

The final Guardians Trilogy novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Bay of Sighs and Stars of Fortune.

As the hunt for the Star of Ice leads the six guardians to Ireland, Doyle, the immortal, must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there’s no one more familiar with the wild than Riley—and the wolf within her…

An archaeologist, Riley is no stranger to the coast of Clare, but now she finds herself on unsure footing, targeted by the dark goddess who wants more than the stars, more than the blood of the guardians. While searching through Irish history for clues that will lead them to the final star and the mysterious Island of Glass, Riley must fight her practical nature and admit her sudden attraction to Doyle is more than just a fling. For it is his strength that will sustain her and give her the power to run towards love—and save them all…

About the Author:

Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels, including The Obsession, The Liar, The Collector, Whiskey Beach and coming in June 2017, Come Sundown. She is also the author of the futuristic suspense In Death series written under the pen name J.D. Robb. There are more than 500 million copies of her books in print.

I have loved this series from the very first book and even though I have loved them and all its characters, Riley and Doyle's story, was the one I have been most looking forward to and I can say with absolute honesty, that it did not disappoint. It was worth every single moment of waiting to finally be able to get their story and inside their heads. 

Like I mentioned before, I've loved all the characters so far, it is almost impossible not to but I knew that these two rough and tough, slightly jaded and calloused characters were going to be the real heart of the story and I wasn't wrong. I absolutely loved finally getting, not only, their backstories and history, but what they were really thinking and feeling about their mission, their role in it, and of course, each other. Plus as an extra bonus, we still got all the characters that we've already fallen in love with and this just made me love them even more as well. 

This was such a great conclusion to the series, full of twists and turn and surprises and tender moments as well as lots of the action we love, this very well might be one of my most favorite ones by Roberts yet. It is definitely one that will stick with me and I won't soon be forgetting.

My Firstlife is over, but my Everlife is only now beginning.

With her last living breath, Tenley "Ten" Lockwood made her choice and picked her realm in the Everlife. Now, as the war between Troika and Myriad rages, she must face the consequences. 

Because Ten possesses a rare supernatural ability to absorb and share light, the Powers That Be have the highest expectations for her future—and the enemy wants her neutralized. Fighting to save her Secondlife, she must learn about her realm from the ground up while launching her first mission: convincing a select group of humans to join her side before they die. No pressure, right? 

But Ten's competition is Killian, the boy she can't forget—the one who gave up everything for her happiness. He has only one shot at redemption: beating Ten at a game she's never even played. As their throw-downs heat up, so do their undeniable feelings, and soon, Ten will have to make another choice. Love…or victory.

November Update...I'm Alive, But Exhausted!

So sorry for the unexpected hiatus everyone! Did you miss me? :p

So where in the world have I been? Helping my mom move!

Okay I knew this was going to be a big project and I expected I would need a small break from blogging but I had no idea how big of a job this would be and just how tired at the end of the day I would be, especially since I still had my own house work, cooking, homework help, picking up kids, grocery shopping, laundry....and everything else to do.

I kid you not, the women has more clothes than a boutique store. Try like a huge walk in closet and then two other bedroom closets full (not small closets either). 

My mom decided she needed/wanted to downgrade her house because it really is just too much for one person anymore (with a huge yard on top of a big house) so after twenty plus years of living in the same house, decided a change was due. Which is great expect, my mom, come to find out, is a pack seriously, in some cases I think it was boarding on hoarding. I mean, really how many pairs of shoes does one person need?

So after a week and a half of working 5 plus hour days just packing her house up, two days of hired moving van help and then another week to help unpack, we are....yes, still only almost done. 

You guys, I'm.So.Tired!

But the end is in sight and everything should be done by the weekend, including putting new furniture together because after all whats a new house without new stuff right? Gah!

So anyways, that is where I have been and what I have been up to. I've tried to blog when I can but honestly, my heart (and body!) just wasn't into it.

I've been thinking a lot about where I want to go with my blog and even if I still want to blog still, to be honest I'm feeling a bit burnt out on everything. Even though I am still reading (well not these past two weeks) books , writing reviews for them is another thing all together. My heart just isn't in it for whatever reason. Maybe it is that 5 year itch thing most bloggers that have been around that long seem to be going through, I don't know. But for now, I will be taking it slow and not posting as much until I feel like I am 100% back in the game. 

With the holidays around the corner and school being out again, I will more than likely not be online much anyways so, maybe once the new year hits I will get more back into the groove of things, or maybe not. I guess time will tell but for now, one day at a time right?

I have missed talking to all of you though! And don't worry, I'm not disappearing, just hanging low for awhile until I get back up to speed on things and catch up with everything at home first. 

Hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! I know it was a day of rest and fun I definitely needed.

WoW Pick of the Week!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.

I admit, I was drawn to this cover first and then the words "standalone" clinched the deal. I'm a sucker lately for standalone novels. As much as I love series and I do love them, I have way too many I still need to finish up so a good book that stands all on its own is a nice change of pace. 

Book Description:

The Girl of Fire and Thorns meets The Queen of the Tearling in this thrilling fantasy standalone about one girl’s unexpected rise to power.

Freya was never meant be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly and the king and those closest to him are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne.

Freya may have escaped the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life.

Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself.

As Freya’s enemies close in and her loyalties are tested, she must decide if she is ready to rule and, if so, how far she is willing to go to keep the crown.

Release Day Review: Belle Chasse by Suzanne Johnson

Title: Belle Chasse
Author: Suzanne Johnson
Series: Book Five in the Sentinels of New Orleans
Published By: Tor Books (November 8, 2016)
Source: ARC Copy Provided by the Publisher (in exchange for an honest review)
Genre: Urban Fantasy
My Rating: 4.5 Stars!

Book Description:
With the wizard-elven treaty on the verge of collapse, the preternatural world stands on the brink of war. Unless former wizard sentinel DJ Jaco manages to keep the elven leader, Quince Randolph, focused on peace and not personal matters.

With no one on the throne, Faerie is in chaos, with rival princes battling for power. The still-undead pirate, Jean Lafitte, is building his own army of misfits, and DJ—stripped of her job and hiding in the Beyond to avoid the death sentence handed down by the wizard Council of Elders—can’t get anywhere near her beloved New Orleans or her significant something-or-other, Alex.

It's time to choose sides. Friends will become enemies, enemies will become allies, and not everyone will survive. DJ and her friends will learn a hard lesson: sometimes, even the ultimate sacrifice isn’t enough.

I am an urban fantasy junkie, I admit it wholeheartedly, but when it comes to really good, well written, well told UF with characters that I absolutely adore, I become a fan girl and the Sentinels of New Orleans, is one of those series that from book one, has made me a fan.

From the characters to the setting, this book stands out and makes it worth the time to try. With sexy (undead) pirates, alpha shape shifters, wizards, vamps, and almost everything else, it is just one of those series that hooks you from the very first chapter and will refuse to ever let go and with this being the last book, how was I ever expected to say good bye? Are endings ever anything but bittersweet?

In this case, no, they are not. This was bittersweet but in the best way possible. We get all the things that have made us fall in love with the series over the course of the releases and then some.

Johnson’s writing, her characters, the arc in the plot, it all doesn't disappoint. It reminded me all over again why this has been a favorite from the beginning and why it will continue to hold a special place in my top ten favorites of the genre. It truly was bittersweet to say goodbye to these characters. 

**Edited to add that after  writing the review, I was able to speak to the author about her book and she informed me that this is not the last book in the series, which, I have to admit, with the ending, makes so much more sense and so I adjusted my rating because of it. Also she said there  is a possibility for a spin off series as well! I'm super excited about this you guys! So fans of DJ and gang, hang in there, more is yet to come!

Discussion Post; Let's Be Honest, When We Comment On Blogs, Do We Expect Something in Return?

So I've been thinking a lot about this lately with the disappearance of blogs and bloggers around the blogsphere and even as I've noticed in myself that I've been more burnt out lately, are we as bloggers getting lacked in our blogging and commenting? And what does this mean as bloggers, commentors, and readers if so?

Let me explain myself a bit more before I go into the discussion part of this post, just so I'm more clear on what exactly I'm asking here.

When we as bloggers visit other blogs and comment do we expect something in return? Whether that be a response to our comment on their blog or a return visit to ours because we commented on theirs?

Let's be brutally honest here, how many of you are willing to spend time visiting other blogs, reading their thoughts and reviews, taking the time to comment and not have said blogger either respond back to your comment or even, let's say, visit your blog in return? Are we expecting too much when this doesn't happen? Is it selfish to think that sometimes we might only comment on other's blog so that they in return will visit and comment on ours?

I'm not saying there is a right or wrong answer here so let's get that out there first but truly, what are our expectations when it comes to visiting other blogs? 

Are we always doing it out of the kindness of our hearts and because we really just think that blog is amazing or do we have ulterior motives?

My brutally honest answer to this is, I think I do both and I don't think I necessarily like that about myself. I didn't start visiting other blogs just so they would visit mine, in fact, I visited them simply because I enjoyed their reviews, recommendations and their opinions about other things that they may have discussed on their blogs. I commented not expecting anything in return because who was I but a lowly commentor after all. But I think somewhere along the way, maybe when I started my own blog, things changed a bit. 

I won't lie, I love when people comment on my blog. It means someone out there is actually reading what I say and cares enough to stop by and say so. It's a great feeling and because I appreciate it, I reply back to them, because I really DO appreciate that they took the time to read what I wrote and say something about it, even if they don't agree with what I had to say, that's okay, they are still reading it and visiting anyways. for me, it's respectful for me to acknowledge that they took the time to stop by and yes, if I see that they too have a blog, I will visit theirs  in return. Why? Because I also believe in paying back their kindness and seeing what they have to say about certain books and things as well. Do I have to do this? No but I do anyways. 

But somewhere along the way of doing this, did I start expecting others to do the same?

Do we as bloggers expect others to do the same as well?

I guess, this is what I want to discuss. If you visit a blog and take the time to read the content and then comment on it, do you expect the blogger to at the very least, respond back to your comment? Do you even care if they do? And if you do comment, do you want them to stop by and visit your blog as well and leave a comment on yours because you did on theirs?

Is it right to expect that? Is it common courtesy or selfishness on our part?

And the biggest question of all is this, if your do visit blogs, comment and then never get a response back from them on your comment or have them visit your blog in return, do you keep visiting them? Do you take the time to comment when it seems like they could care less that you did?

Truly there are no right or wrong answers here, I'm just super curious what your thoughts are about this. What is the protocol? Is there one?

I certainly don't want to cause any hard feelings or negativity of any kind, that isn't what this post is suppose to be about it truly is me, picking your brain here and wanting to know what you think about it too. Have you ever thought about it? Do you have an opinion on it?

WoW Pick of the Week!

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.

Kasie West is one if the few YA contemporary authors I still have on my autobuy list and her latest looks just as fun as her others. I can't wait for it to release. 

Book Description:

In this irresistible story, Kasie West explores the timeless question of what to do when you fall for the person you least expect. Witty and romantic, this paperback original from a fan favorite is perfect for fans of Stephanie Perkins and Morgan Matson.

When Autumn Collins finds herself accidentally locked in the library for an entire weekend, she doesn’t think things could get any worse. But that’s before she realizes that Dax Miller is locked in with her. Autumn doesn’t know much about Dax except that he’s trouble. Between the rumors about the fight he was in (and that brief stint in juvie that followed it) and his reputation as a loner, he’s not exactly the ideal person to be stuck with. Still, she just keeps reminding herself that it is only a matter of time before Jeff, her almost-boyfriend, realizes he left her in the library and comes to rescue her.

Only he doesn’t come. No one does.

Instead it becomes clear that Autumn is going to have to spend the next couple of days living off vending-machine food and making conversation with a boy who clearly wants nothing to do with her. Except there is more to Dax than meets the eye. As he and Autumn first grudgingly, and then not so grudgingly, open up to each other, Autumn is struck by their surprising connection. But can their feelings for each other survive once the weekend is over and Autumn’s old life, and old love interest, threaten to pull her from Dax’s side?

Fall Shows, What To Watch and What I am Watching

I had so much fun with this over the summer, I thought with the new fall TV season under way (for the most part), it would be fun to see what everyone else is watching, trying and recommending plus tell you about those shows I have been a faithful watcher of for years, and those new shows I've actually tried and am really liking.

Fall is always a fun season because not only does it bring cooler weather and gorgeous foliage but it brings back our favorite shows after a couple of month hiatus. And while a lot of shows over the last season have lost my interst (Vampire Diaries I'm looking at you), there are still some I'm completely loyal too. 

 I am an avid Supernatural fan and October is one of my favorite months, not only does it house Halloween, but hello, Sup starts back up! 

For those of you that haven't tried this series yet, seriously do it. Dean and Sam are just, amazing, not to mention so many other characters that make it impossible not to love, even the bad guys. I admit, it took me two season of watching before I was in love but once I was there, I never turned back. 

Another series, along the same line that I have loved since the beginning is Grimm, and while they had to postpone it's start up until January, I can't wait for it to begin and am so sad this will be the last season. I seriously love Monroe, he is by far my favorite character of the whole series. 

I started watching Blindspot last fall on a whim and loved it and with the killer cliffhanger is ended with I could't wait to see how it would start back up and I have to say, I was a little worried but thankfully, I'm still loving it. 

I'm not usually one for 30 minute sitcoms but over the summer I needed something short I could watch while folding laundry and I stumbled upon this on Hulu and oh my heck, it is so funny! I think I watched the whole first season in a matter of weeks. Yep, I seriously need to step away from the TV but at least I was getting housework done at the same time right?

This one, okay I tried to resist I really did and I will be the first to admit that some of the scenes turn my stomach but I can't help it, I still watch it and love it. Yeah, I know, so not my normal thing to watch, like at all but there you have it. Once I started watching, I could't go back and now I'm hooked. 

So that is about it, that's all I watch that has been on for more than one season that is still going strong and still holds my interest.

I have started watching a couple of new shows that so far I'm in love with but I tread lightly since it is so hit and miss with first seasons and you never know if they will be picked back up or not but here are the ones that are "new" that I'm watching.

Okay there has only been like two episodes so far but holy heck, those two episodes were amazing! I love shows that are both realistic and funny as heck and this show is it for me, plus I love that it is only about 20 minutes long (on Hulu) which makes me feel like I'm not watching as much TV. :P

Anybody that knows me knows that I'm a huge history nerd and to get a part of history (of sorts) in a good sci fi show is so much fun and yes again, only a few episodes have aired but I've loved them all so far and can see this being a fun one. 

And last This Is Us. I hadn't planned on watching this but I caught an episode and now I really like it. I have a couple to watch still but I've liked the ones that I have seen so far. 

So what about you, what shows are you watching currently? Do you love fall as much as I do?

Have you tried any of the new shows airing? Tell me about it! I want to know! I always like watching (or okay reading) while I'm working out too (which honestly is where I watch most of my shows) so any recommendations are always welcome. ;) 

Oh and I have to do an honorable mention to the Big Bang Theory, while it sadly isn't on Netflix or Hulu, it is a show that I love to watch whenever I can catch it on TV which is sadly hardly ever.
