Books I’m currently reading:

I’m finally getting around to reading the wonderful Sarah M. Cradit’s books! She is an outstanding author, and an all around amazing person! These stories are well written, interesting, and described so beautifully! πŸ™‚ Check out her page here!

A Killer of Lions – Stan Weisleder


I’m reading this one for a review for Say What Savannah Mae! It’s actually very interesting, well written and a change of pace from the normal fiction I read. It follows a characters journey to become a African american pilot in the Air Force. It’s well researched, and interesting, and I can’t wait to finish this story and see what happens! πŸ™‚

Tougher Then The Rest – Shirleen Davis


This one is for a review I was asked to do on my blog, and I’m a little behind! I promised to have it up in June, and sadly my reading skills did not allow that to happen. This is a romance novel, set in the Arizona territory, Cattle rancher Neill is torn between making the decision that’s good for business and the decision that’s good for his heart! The lovely Kate, has lost her memory and only wears a gold band, but has no memory of a husband or kids, but all she can think about is Neill. This book is well written, interesting, and the characters are quite well developed! πŸ™‚

Jack Cannon’s America Destiny by Greg Sandora


I’m reading this as a reviewer for Nerd Girl! πŸ™‚ This book is an action book, with great characters, and a strong storyline, I’m just in the beginning so you can click the links to check out the description more and see if this would be a book for you! It quite good so far! πŸ™‚

Weekly Round Up – The Help, Between Eden and The Open Road, and King Hall!

So, as it’s Friday, and the end of my work week, I figured I’d round up some of the books I recently finished and love, some of the books I’ve started and some of the books I’m excited to start reading! πŸ™‚

Books I’ve read this week:

1. The Entire Fallen Trilogy by Lauren Kate (Yes, I became addicted and couldn’t help it, you start with the first book in this series, and I promise you, it will snowball, and you’ll want to read them all, which I have, this week. Hence the lack of posting)

2. Entwined With You by Sylvia Day (Yes, I know, mainstream romance novel at it’s finest, but I honestly can’t help reading books that are on some best seller list, I always feel like if I don’t read them, I’ve never have anything to bring up in conversation.)

3. The Help by Kathryn StockettΒ (I’m reading this along with one other book, Marked by P.C Cast & Kirsten Cast for my book club, I’ve previously read Marked and loved it and it’s series, but never read the The Help. I can honestly say I loved this book, and it kept me on the edge of my seat because you really pull for these characters)

Book’s I’ve Started and am in Love with!

1. Between Eden and The Open Road by Phillip Gaber – This book is great, I expected a novel, but what I got was an outstanding collection of prose and poetry, I’m more then 3/4 through this book, but I can honestly say the disaffecting tone in this poetry collection is refreshing and honest. I enjoy reading it because it feels truthful, gritty and real. It’s a great collection!

2. The Ashtray Volume 1 by Joan W Jones, Nicole Diver, Elizabeth Luna– This is a collection of short stories, firmly rooted in real life, and the things that you can experience in the bar scene and life in general in your college years and beyond. The voices of these authors are clear, beautiful and haunting. The book is outstandingly simple and complex at the same time, and the illustrations through the book really bring something extra to the table, I cannot wait to finish this book and give a full review, because I’m sure a lot of people will be eager to read this.

Book’s I’m excited to Start!

25 Perfect Days by Mark Tullis – This is a collection of poetry set in the distopian future, and mixing in religious and other things that have lead out civilization to where it currently resides in these poems. I’ve been waiting to finish my other poetry collection in order to start this one! So excited!

2. King Hall by Scarlett Dawn – This book looks amazing, and I’ve super exciting to have ARC in order to review it, because it it just up my alley. Supernatural, romance, vampires, shifters! It’s got everything a fantasy lover like myself could want in one book! πŸ™‚

So many reviews to come!

I’ve been reading some amazing books lately, I’ve been varrying from humor, fiction, non fiction, poetry! πŸ™‚ I think it’s going to very exciting, I’m finishing up the last few pages for a wonderfully light read called Between Eden and The Open RoadΒ and it’s been wonderfully humorous so far! Also, The Ashtray (Volume 1) which I’ve just started has been so riviting. Hoping to have an author spotlight on the authors behind that book, because they bring to much to the table in their writing that comes right from their own lives. Plus, 25 Perfect Days is a science fiction, future reality poetry collection, I cannot wait to start that!

Amazing things headed this way πŸ™‚ Check out the books, and stay tuned for my thoughts, and feel free to share your thoughts! πŸ™‚
