Books from the Library

By: Morgan Rhodes

This is an Epic/High Fantasy that I have been on the waiting list for and FINALLY was notified that the book is now available for pick up. WooooHooo, am I excited.

So far I'm about 50 pages in and IN LOVE with it ♥

By: Leigh Bardugo

This is book 1 to the Grisha series that I've been meaning to read. I've had books 1 & 2 on my Kindle for a while, but I'd rather read it from the hardback for some reason. I'm not completely in love with reading from my kindle yet, it's still new to me. Hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon b/c I got a gagillion ebooks waiting to be read. Lol!

By: Margaret Atwood

I've heard really great things about this story. That it's a must read, a rather emotional one, but all around a compelling one. I was excited to see that my library had it available.

By: Laini Taylor

I was excited to see that my library had this one available too. Since I read Laini Taylor's, Daughter of Smoke & Bone, and enjoyed it tremendously, I was curious about more of her writing.  This is a perfect way for me to do that b/c this book showcases three tales by the author, WooooHoooo.....Score!!

Books Bought

By: Laini Taylor

Of course after I read Daughter of Smoke & Bone, book 1 in the DoS&B series, I just had to go out and buy book 2. I enjoyed the first book so much I only hope this one is just as good or better. Please don't let me down b/c I attend on buying and read book 3, Dreams of Gods & Monsters, coming this April.

Books Received as a Gift

By: A.G. Howard

Actually there is a really funny story behind this that you can check by clicking here. But this book was given to me by my hubs, Josh, for Valentine's Day. I was pretty F'ing please and in shock!!! He NEVER does anything like that, the fact that he had to put some thought into i
LOL! Love him ♥ Love my gift

    1. Great minds thinking alike! xoxox
      Thanks for stopping by Missie! Always a pleasure ♥

  2. Great post, so many great books. Lagoon is intriguing, I would like to give Falling Kingdoms a try. Same with a Handmaiden's tale but I read one other Margaret Atwood and I hated it. Love the gif! Rainbow Dash was always my favourite lol.

    1. Omg! I've been reading Falling Kingdom all morning! I love it! It's a library book and b/c I love it so much I'm going to go buy it. That way I can own the whole series. Book 2, Rebal Spring is already out and the 3rd book, Gathering Darkness, comes out this December!

      I love Rainbow Dash too. My daughter is obsessed with MLP and she calls herself Twilight, daddy is Pinkie Pie, her baby sister is Fluttershy and I get to be Rainbow dash lol!!

      Thanks for always stopping by!!! Kiss and Hugs! xoxoxox ♥♥♥

  3. Lagoon looks awesome, I read this one book by her... ahhhh I am blanking on the title, ahhhh AKATA WITCH, that's what it was called. Anyways, that was a great book.

    Also! Shadow And Bone is soooo good. Hope you love it!

  4. Awesome post sweetie :D Sigh. Shadow and Bone. <3 I really hope you will love it :) And that you will love everything else that you got as well. Happy reading :)
