Hello Fellow Bibliophiles and Wanderers March was an incredible and extremely busy month. First and fore most, my family was made whole again with my husband coming home after a year overseas! You would think that after so many years the separations would get easier but in truth, they have only become harder. In many […]

My Thoughts Children of Blood and Bone is my favorite book of the year, hands down. It is as epic as it is powerful. On The Surface Tomi Adeyemi creates a beautiful, brutal and immersive world of magic, prejudice and fighting back. The cultures of Children of Blood and Bone are so vivid they draw you […]

My Thoughts This review is going to be interesting to write. I am a huge fan of Karen Marie Moning and the Fever Series. There are very few series I will reread and even fewer authors on my autobuy list – KMM and the Fever World fall into these categories. I am also well aware […]

My Thoughts Typically, I do not read many books that are retelling fairy tales so I am unsure if I would have picked up The Hazel Wood on my own. When I do come across a new book, I generally check out a few reviews just to get a feel of how its been received. […]

I miss Korea. If I could go back, I would without a second thought. It wasn’t always this way though. Shortly after my husband and I eloped… in Vegas… on a helicopter… we found out the military was stationing us in Korea. I was 23, just graduated from college (the first time) and had no […]

My Thoughts I really wanted to love this book. Truly. There was so much hype surrounding it and so many positive reviews that I had relatively high hopes, albeit with a touch of skepticism. However, after finishing it I feel as conflicted and contradictory as the characters. I can’t say that I didn’t enjoy The […]

My Thoughts Wow. My mind is blown. Have you ever read or experienced anything that made you feel so incredibly small and insignificant in the grand scheme of things? That is Waking Gods and really the Themis Files in general. It has been over a year since I read Sleeping Giants so I had forgotten […]

Little Bit of Background Since this is the third book in the series and the first time I am posting about this author, I thought it might be helpful to give a little background. I have found Bella’s books to be unique in that they remind me of watching a TV show (and she publishes […]
