Book Blitz and Giveaway: The Shadow Weave - Annette Marie

The Shadow Weave
Annette Marie
(Spell Weaver #2)
Publication date: January 12th 2018
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy
Clio might be a nymph living in exile among humans. And she might possess the rare ability to mimic any magic she sees. And she might have just seriously ticked off the most powerful family of spell weavers in the Underworld.
But she is not in love with an incubus.
Lyre is the rebellious black sheep of said weaver family, and he’s the only reason she survived her recent Underworld “vacation.” He’s also the sexiest thing she’s ever seen. Together, they have to track down a catastrophically dangerous magic—a magic he created, she sort of stole, and they both lost—before his family gets their hands on it. And that means fighting alongside him in a desperate attempt to avert complete disaster.
But she is definitely not in love with him. At least, she’s pretty sure she’s not.
Mostly sure. Maybe sure? …Crap.Goodreads / AmazonEXCERPT: As though summoned by her thoughts, the sex…

Weekly Round Up #52 : The One Where I took a few Weeks Off

Hi everyone and Happy 2018! I haven't been around the blogosphere for a while - I've been traveling and didn't have a laptop as my old one totally gave out last year. I missed everyone though and I do have a LOT to catch up on! I'll be going back through my unanswered comments as January goes by but I'm not sticking to a posting schedule or anything until February. The rest of this month is basically just for catch up.
What I read: So far I'm managing to stay on top of my reading schedule and this year so far I've completed three books.

The review of The Shadow Weave is linked to the cover and I'll probably review The Royals trilogy as a series. What I am currently reading:
I'm continuing m…

Know your enemy if you want to survive…

The only way for Khya to get her brother back alive is to kill Varan—the immortal ruler who can’t be killed. But not even Varan knew what he was doing when he perverted magic and humanity to become immortal.

Khya’s leading her group of friends and rebels into the mountains that hold Varan’s secrets, but if risking all their lives is going to be worth it, she has to give up everything else—breaking the spell that holds her brother captive and jeopardizing her deepening relationship with Tessen, the boy who has been by turns her rival and refuge since her brother disappeared. Immortality itself might be her only answer, but if that’s where Khya has to go, she can’t ask Tessen or her friends to follow. Amazon | Amazon Australia | Amazon UK | Amazon Canada | B&N | Kobo

Do you re-read books?
Oh course! I’ve reread Harry Potter many many times but sometimes they’re not full rereads. Sometimes I go straight to a part or chapter I love and read it! Generally I reread favorites when I’m in a slump. Harry Potter and LOTR have a way of getting me out of slumps.

I also reread when I’m not in the best mood. When I’m not in a good mood I rarely start new books because I worry my bad mood will seep into my feelings for the book so I go to the books that I know I will love for sure!

I rarely re-read a whole book, but I will re-read sections of it. For example, I often re-read bits of books…

Review: Everless - Sara Holland

Everless by Sara Holland

My rating: {★★★★☆}

YA Fantasy
Expected publication: January 4th 2018 by Hachette

In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.

No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.

But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her dec…

Weekly Round Up #51 : The One Where December is Busy Busy

Well, my first week in December was a busy one, both on and off the blog! One of my horses came down with colic so that was an eventful evening. Luckily she pulled through and is back to full health now but it was scary there for a while!

I still haven't finished putting up our Christmas tree - it's hard with a three year old! Her attention span is not conducive to putting up and decorating a 9 foot tree!!! But at least we're doing it together and getting into the Christmas spirit and it's not looking too bad in the meantime.
