Hello, new epic fantasy called Falling Kingdoms, by Morgan Rhodes! I am having a love/hate relationship with you right now, but love you more than I hate you… I could not imagine getting into ANOTHER series right now, although this series promises to have twisting plot lines with the vast array of characters you can’t help but relate to. There are royal families, peasants, sorceresses, and savages!
The story comes across as a simplified version of Lord of the Rings, with more heart-wrenching romances that appeal more to a female audiences. The …

This is the second novel in The Ruby Red Trilogy, Sapphire Blue, by Kerstin Gier. I have been waiting a year for this novel, and I still feel so incomplete… Probably because it is a trilogy and I have only read two of the novels in the series! If only I knew German! As these books are being translated, I have been waiting as patiently as possible. I admit that it has been worth the wait, with new characters and a growing relationship between Gwen and Gideon, I could not …

I give Throne of Glass 5 books on my bookshelf! Not only is it one more amazing YA series that seriously has me thinking it would be cool to be an assassin, but it is full of rich characters with captivating stories. While Maas has a love for fairy tales, her work has the strength of an epic fantasy. If you enjoy stories like Rift (by Andrea Cremer), Grave Mercy (by Robin LaFevers), Legacy of Tril: Soulbound (by Heather Brewer), and Graceling (by Kristin Cashore) you will honestly be captivated …

TEMPTATION by Karen Ann Hopkins had everything that I tend to be drawn to in a guilty pleasure book. I am freakishly drawn to books having anything to do with the Amish so, when I saw this title, I knew that I had to read it. Here’s the synopsis from Amazon:
Your heart misleads you. That’s what my friends and family say.
But I love Noah.
And he loves me.
We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in …

I received THE BOOK OF BLOOD AND SHADOW on NetGalley for review* from Knopf Books for Young Readers. I must admit that this is not the type of book that I normally read.

But, that being said, a ton of my friends and some of my favorite bloggers that I follow had raved about this book. I knew that I had to read this book, too, just because of those …
