#onelinewednesday: Door to Altharia

By | 2018-12-11T16:33:25+00:00 December 12th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

I usually don't read a lot of MG novels, but I was blessed with the opportunity to snag one on Cyber Monday by Martyn McGrath! As I was reading, I kept thinking how both of my sons (if older) would greatly enjoy his novel Door to Altharia. The world building was incredible! The author did a fantastic job of creating a world very different then our own [...]

#onelinewednesday: Rothana

By | 2018-12-05T10:07:01+00:00 December 5th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

A powerfully told story I recently read was Rothana by Sarah Delena White. It delivered in every way, even if times I wanted to ask the author why these precious characters have to go what they are going through. Haha! I soaked up reading this book as quick as I could because I was SO invested in these characters lives. They bring so many feels and [...]

#onelinewednesday: Mark of the Raven

By | 2018-12-03T18:20:05+00:00 November 28th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

Wonder if you could walk into people's dreams? What would you do? Bring out their greatest fears or inspire them to do greater things? Selene from Morgan L. Busse's latest release, Mark of the Raven, knows all about this struggle. And she's not the only one. Though Damien (one of my favorite characters) doesn't have the gift of dreamwalking he has his own struggles. Ones [...]

#onelinewednesday: Lightless

By | 2018-11-06T21:19:04+00:00 November 7th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

Sometimes you need a little reading break and I decided to do just that this past weekend with a new short story release. Lightless by K.T. Ivanrest released last week and have to second the person this story was dedicated too. It would make an epic novel. However, even as a short story it is very good. Fulsa's growth was extremely touching and loved how he [...]

#onelinewednesday: Emerald Illusion

By | 2018-10-25T10:18:26+00:00 October 24th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

Today's book I'm sharing is a deep and thought-provoking allegorical tale. I haven't read the book Wizard of Oz, but I strongly recommend not comparing anything said or known about that story with J. Rodes' Emerald Illusion. Truly, there is nothing safe in Oz. There were many things I enjoyed about this story and even though allegorical stories are not something I usually read, the [...]

#onelinewednesday: Faithless

By | 2018-10-17T10:04:15+00:00 October 17th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

I wish I wasn't sick and brain muddled so I could accurately describe how much I loved the book I'm sharing about today. It well exceeded ALL my expectations and absolutely loved everything about this powerful story. Truly, if you haven't started The Ironfire Legacy series by Janeen Ippolito, I strongly recommend starting it. Faithless, book two, releases tomorrow and it is hands down a [...]

#onelinewednesday: Kill the Beast

By | 2018-09-26T13:36:31+00:00 September 26th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

Technically today's book quote is much longer than one line, but it's a quote from Michele Israel Harper's Kill the Beast that made my heart sing and skin break out in goosebumps. I first have to mention that it was such a creative tale! I've never read the original Beauty and the Beast and can't compare this retelling to the original, but I still very much appreciate the [...]

#onelinewednesday: The Electrical Menagerie

By | 2018-09-18T14:32:41+00:00 September 19th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

There I was. Minding my own business at my dinner table, listening to the wind howl and pounding rain as Hurricane Florence (turned tropical depression at that moment) went slowly over my home. Yet at the same time, I wasn't home. I was watching Carthage perform in Mollie E. Reeder's The Electrical Menagerie next to a young girl who was just as swept into this [...]

#onelinewednesday: Guardian of Ajalon

By | 2018-09-11T14:39:46+00:00 September 12th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

Happy post book release to my friend, Joan Campbell! Her latest and final novel in The Poison Tree Path Chronicles released yesterday and was an excellent and perfect conclusion! She  brought back the characters I loved in books one and two while shining a new light on their backgrounds and overall story in Guardian of Ajalon. (Plus, some interesting nuggets on a few side characters.) None [...]

#onelinewednesday: The Fractured Empire

By | 2018-09-10T15:04:58+00:00 September 5th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

More firsts for the first Wednesday in a new month! I'm super excited to be sharing today's book quote from my very first dieselpunk (granted, it was mixed in with some intriguing fantasy too) from debut author, Robin D. Mahle. Her upcoming novel The Fractured Empire was such a fun story! Had a tad bit of language then I usually care for, but the story was [...]
