This Weeks Question
If you could have any job, what would you do? – Suggested by Peace Love Books.

My Answer
I'd own my own bookstore! I'd fill it with all the books from authors I love! Go to book conventions.. host book events and author signings! But most of all I'd get to share my passion for books with everyone that stops by! Yup that's the dream!

Waiting on Wednesday: Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard

It's taking me a while to get back into the swing of things on my blog. I've got a few reviews written ready to post. I've received a few offers to host a few authors and their amazing books (all coming soon) and I've even got a pretty big giveaway in mind! But there's one thing I forgot... one thing that almost all blogs use.. and a favorite of mine because their just so darn informative.. DAILY MEMES!! Oh man I used to look forward to my Top Ten Tuesdays and my Waiting on Wednesdays.. and right now I could definitely use a few Follow Fridays to get me back into the swing of things! Ha! lol... so here's my first and long overdue meme post! Enjoy! :)

This Week's Pick


The thrilling second book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Red Queen trilogy follows Mare Barrow on her mission to defeat the traitorous Maven.

Mare Barrow’s blood is red—the color of common folk—but her Silver ability, the power to control lightning, has turned her into a weapon that the royal court tries to control. 

The crown calls her an impossibility, a fake, but as she makes her escape from Maven, the prince—the friend—who betrayed her, Mare uncovers something startling: she is not the only one of her kind.

Pursued by Maven, now a vindictive king, Mare sets out to find and recruit other Red-and-Silver fighters to join in the struggle against her oppressors. 

But Mare finds herself on a deadly path, at risk of becoming exactly the kind of monster she is trying to defeat. 

Will she shatter under the weight of the lives that are the cost of rebellion? Or have treachery and betrayal hardened her forever? 

The electrifying next installment in the Red Queen series escalates the struggle between the growing rebel army and the blood-segregated world they’ve always known—and pits Mare against the darkness of her own heart. 

My Thoughts
For my very first Waiting on Wednesday, I just had to go with this book! It's the first book I read when I restarted this whole blog.. so yup! Definitely waiting for the sequel to Red Queen!! Not just because Red Queen was so darn good... but because I feel like a sort of deeper connection to this series. If I could get my greedy little book reader hands on this book today... I'd be one very very happy book blogger lol!

Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige


I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero.

But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado - taking you with it - you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little bluebirds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still a yellow brick road - but even that's crumbling.

What happened? Dorothy.

They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

My name is Amy Gumm - and I'm the other girl from Kansas.

I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked.

I've been trained to fight.

And I have a mission. 

My Review
I had mixed feelings for this particular book. It was recommended to me from a friend who gushed and gushed about it's awesomeness so it was a must read for me. Where do I start? It definitely showed promise, with a clever plot, and a good writing style. It kept me reading. But the story line kinda felt like it dragged a bit to me. There were just parts in the story that I felt didn't really need to be there, so I skipped a sentence here and a paragraph there, sometimes entire pages. That's never a good sign. I did have one major peeve as well... the main character. I kept finding myself shaking the book in frustration!! Come on girl! Grow a pair! (Excuse the language) There were so many characters counting on her, in fact the whole book rests on her shoulders and she just disappointed over and over. The fact that the ending of the book led to absolutely no where. I just... no. I'm sorry Dorothy and to my wonderful friend that loved this book so much.. but I just wasn't a fan. I sure tried though. Two stars from me for effort. Maybe I'll try book 2 just to see if this character ever makes something of herself. I sure hope she does! I'm routing for you Amy!
