Amber Tate believes the worst thing she’ll suffer in life is dealing with the unrequited love she feels for her brother’s best friend, Rylen Fite. She also believes war is something unfortunate that happens places far, far away from her rural Nevada town. She’s wrong on both counts. When an unknown organization meticulously bombs major cities in the United States and across the globe, a trickle-down effect spreads to remaining towns at an alarming speed—everything from food and water sources to technology and communications are […]

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Audiobook Review: 4 stars to Ink and Bone (The Great Library #1) by Rachel Caine

Knowledge is power. Power corrupts. In a world where the ancient Great Library of Alexandria was never destroyed, knowledge now rules the world: freely available, but strictly controlled.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s task is to list Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough/In A While. There are a number of books I’ve read over the years that I just don’t talk about because, well, I just don’t know. So most of these are actually book series, so I’m counting each one as a single book because otherwise we’d be here forever, ‘kay? In no particular order. […]




(Video) My January Wrap Up | 2016

I thought I’d try to share what I put on youtube these days on my blog and so here we are. I made a mild mistake on my video, where I didn’t explain what any of the books are about. (FAIL!) So at least now I know for next time. I’m still learning. I hate it. I also need to learn to do cover photos. It’s funny, I filmed a whole load, but then realised I couldn’t really spoil on a video compiled of a […]

#GIVEAWAY: Illuminae by Jay Kristoff & Amy Kaufman (UK only)

HELLO THERE! So today on my blog I’m going to do something a little different and for no reason at all other than to make space for other lovely books, I’m giving away a copy of Illuminae that I got but haven’t read (loooong story but basically Book Depository messed up) and now I’m thinking maybe there’ll be someone else out there who’d love a copy (and who isn’t fussed that there’s no jacket to it). If that person is YOU, then all you gotta […]
