Throwback Thursday – Wolf by Wolf (Wolf By Wolf #1) by Ryan Graudin

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

Cover Reveal – Ace of Shades (The Shadow Game #1) by Amanda Foody

COVERREVEALaceofshades

There is nothing quite like an eye catching book cover, is there? It can pull you in and beg for your purchase without you even knowing anything about the book. Author Amanda Foody announced her next book, Ace of Shades, a few months ago. Since I loved her first novel (cover and all), Daughter of the Burning City, I was excited to see what Ace of Shades would bring.

Yesterday was the big cover reveal for Shades and I have to say that I am a little disappointed. I like the blood red almost wallpaper background and the imposing shadow of a sinister city but the card tower is very lackluster. It just doesn’t have the pizzazz I was hoping for. Take a look at the upcoming novel… Continue reading

Rage (Stormheart #2) by Cora Carmack

Release day June 12th 2018
Published by Tor Teen

All Aurora Pavan ever wanted was a choice, to control her own life. Now she’s got more choices than she can handle.

Princess or adventurer.

Duty or freedom.

Her Kingdom or the Stormhunter she loves.

If she knows anything, it’s that choices have consequences— like the storm now tangled with her heart, the alarming disappearance of her mother and friend, and the fall of her kingdom to the Locke family. To set things right, she joins a growing revolution on the streets of Pavan. She puts her knowledge of the palace to use to aid the rebellion, but the Lockes aren’t the only sinister thing plaguing Pavan. The Rage season is at it’s peak and not a day passes without the skies raining down destruction. But these storms seem… different than any she’s ever encountered. They churn with a darkness that frightens her, and attack with a will like she’s never seen. This feels like more than Rage. It feels like war. (description taken from http://www.coracarmack.com)
