Reader Problems Tag

 

READERPROBLEMSTAG

I am ashamed. I put this tag into my drafts folder months ago and complete forgot to note where I found it. Yikes! All I know is that it was on someone named Jade’s blog. Jade, if you’re out there, let me know so I can link back to you!

Since I am currently feeling a little under the weather I decided to do a simple tag today. My brain is in a fog and I’m lucky enough to know my name right now, no less be witty about some bookish things. Without further ado… Continue reading

Down the TBR Hole #15

TBRHOLE

Welcome again to Down the TBR Hole! As I opened my Goodreads TBR list up to work up this post I honestly got a bit frustrated. It seems it has reorganized itself on a whim and some books that I KNOW that I deleted are now magically back. How did that even happen? I’m going to try to pick up where I left off last time but it is a little iffy with the order of books. I’ve also decided to give this list a bit of tough love and purge it a little more. Let’s see where it goes.  Continue reading

Throwback Thursday – The Mists of Avalon (Avalon #1) by Marion Zimmer Bradley

throwbackthursday

Renee began Throwback Thursday at Its Book Talk as a way to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books that she wants to read that were published over a year ago. Books that were published over a year ago are almost always easier to find at libraries or at a discounted sale price. As I have been sifting through my TBR list and purging those books that no longer hold my interest, I came across several from years past that I’d love to share with you! Continue reading

Ash Princess (Untitled Trilogy #1) by Laura Sebastian (eARC)

32505753

Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Queen of Flame and Fury, was murdered before her eyes. Ten years later, Theo has learned to survive under the relentless abuse of the Kaiser and his court as the ridiculed “Ash Princess.” Pretending to be empty-headed and naive when she’s not enduring brutal whippings, she pushes down all other thoughts but one: Keep the Kaiser happy and he will keep you safe.

When the Kaiser forces her to execute her last hope of rescue, Theo can’t keep her feelings and memories pushed down any longer. She vows revenge, throwing herself into a plot to seduce and murder the Kaiser’s warrior son with the help of a group of magically gifted and volatile rebels. But Theo doesn’t expect to develop feelings for the Prinz. Or for her rebel allies to challenge her friendship with the one person who’s been kind to her throughout the last hopeless decade: her heart’s sister, Cress.

Cornered into impossible choices and unable to trust even those who are on her side, Theo will have to decide how far she’s willing to go to save her people and how much of herself she’s willing to sacrifice to become queen. (Goodreads)
