#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 [...]

#onelinewednesday: Dancing and Doughnuts

By | 2018-08-28T16:52:35+00:00 August 29th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

If you are on the hunt for a fun western read that just might also be a clean fairytale retelling, then friend, I have happy news for you! I recently read just that by a new-to-me author: Rachel Kovaciny. Her latest release, Dancing and Doughnuts, had a dash of romance, intriguing mystery, and of course, dancing and doughnuts. ;) However, as much as I loved these [...]

#onelinewednesday: When Beauty Blooms

By | 2018-08-15T15:52:30+00:00 August 15th, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

One of my recent goals in the past few weeks has been to read outside of my usual genres such as fantasy and urban fantasy. It helps when authors throw these beautiful covers your way and you simply can't resist reading the story inside. A fine example of this is Victoria Lynn's latest release, When Beauty Blooms. Though I know I shouldn't judge a book [...]

#onelinewednesday: Kingdom of Ash and Soot

By | 2018-08-01T16:24:51+00:00 August 1st, 2018|#onelinewednesday|

I'm getting a late start today in sharing such an excellent story, but better late than never, right? ;) Kingdom of Ash and Soot from C.S. Johnson was fantastic! (Definitely one of my favorite reads of this year.) It was packed full of political intrigue, but not so much where it went over my head or was hard to remember. The Cinderella twist honestly made [...]
