Waiting on Wednesday #390, October 31st

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

Evermore by Sara Holland
Expected Publication: December 31st, 2019
From Goodreads:
The highly anticipated sequel to New York Times bestseller, Everless! 

Jules Ember was raised hearing legends of the ancient magic of the wicked Alchemist and the good Sorceress. But she has just learned the truth: not only are the stories true, but she herself is the Alchemist, and Caro—a woman who single-handedly murdered the Queen and Jules’s first love, Roan, in cold blood—is the Sorceress.

The whole kingdom believes that Jules is responsible for the murders, and a hefty bounty has been placed on her head. And Caro is intent on destroying Jules, who stole her heart twelve lifetimes ago. Jules must delve into the stories that she now recognizes are accounts of her own past. For it is only by piecing together the mysteries of her lives that Jules will be able to save the person who has captured her own heart in this one.

Kingdom of Ash
OK, so I got 16 posts in 7 days, which doesn't sound like too much, but I read 8 different books. And got a good deal done. So yeah, I'm happy with this week! What about you guys? Happy reading!

So this week I want to read Beautiful Sinner, First Grave on the Right, For I Have Sinned, Second Grave on the Left, Third Grave Dead Ahead, Forth Grave Beneath My Feet, Fifth Grave Past the Light, Shimmer, Glow, Sixth Grave on the Edge, Seventh Grave and No Body, Eighth Grave After Dark, Brighter Than the Sun, The Long Paw of the Law, and Shades of Wicked.

Locked in with the town bad boy . . .

Most women would be scared, but Gabriella's only worried about resisting Cruz Walsh, who's even hotter than he was back in high school. Cruz was wrongly accused of the high-profile crime for which he was imprisoned; Gabriella's desperate for the scoop that will get her career off the ground and get her out of Sweet Hill, where everyone still remembers her as "Flabby Gabby." Being stuck in a supply closet with Cruz is the perfect opportunity to land an interview. What Bri doesn't count on is Cruz taking "up-close and personal" to a whole new level.

If there's a silver lining to the hell Cruz went through, it's that losing his freedom put everything in perspective. Maybe starting over someplace new would be easier, but after years locked up, Cruz values his family—and his true friends—more than ever. So he's back home, facing the gossip, dodging reporters . . . and face-to-face with Gabriella Rossi. They've both changed: Bri wants a story and Cruz just wants her. Another thing he's learned? Don't let a good thing slip away.
Texas police officer Megan Luz and her K-9 partner Brigit have come a long way, baby.

A BUNDLE OF JOY. A DOG-EAT-DOG WORLD. . .

One night, while on duty with her four-legged crime-fighting companion, Meg gets an urgent call from her boyfriend Seth, who works for the Fort Worth fire department. A baby girl has turned up at the station with only two clues to her identity: One is a peace-sign symbol stitched into her blanket. The other is a word, written in string: help.

Megan follows every loose thread and, along with Brigit, ends up on a twisted path that leads to the People of Peace compound, the site of a religious sect on the outskirts of the city. Its leader, Father Emmanuel, keeps his followers on a short leash—and his enemies even closer. Could this be the abandoned baby's original home? And if so, why was she cast out? Now that Megan and Brigit are on the case, the secrets of this reclusive cult are bound to be dug up. . .

Diane Kelly is back with The Long Paw of the Law, the seventh installment in her drool-worthy Paw Enforcement series.
In this thrilling new Night Rebel series set in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress world, sexy and ruthless vampire Ian finally meets his match!

The Rule Breaker

Master vampire Ian is unrepentant, shameless…and every shade of wicked. He's made one too many enemies in his two centuries of existence, including Dagon, a demon who now lays claim to his soul. Ian's only chance to escape Dagon is to join forces with a Law Guardian, but he's never been able to abide by the rules for long.

The Law Maker

Veritas' normal role is police, judge and jury to reprobates like Ian. But she has her own ax to grind with Dagon, so if she can use Ian as bait…well, all's fair in law and war. As they scour supernatural hotspots to perfect their trap, Veritas soon realizes Ian's devil-may-care, roguish image hides something much more powerful. And Ian discovers that Veritas has shocking secrets of her own. As they're drawn to each other with a passion as intense as their peril, either love or justice will prevail. But each will have devastating consequences…

Week 43 Reviews: Superheroes Anonymous, Supervillains Anonymous, How to Save the World, #HeroFail




From Goodreads:
Everybody in Chicago has a "superhero sighting" story. So when a villain attacks editorial assistant Gail Godwin and she's rescued by superhero Blaze, it's a great story, and nothing more. Until it happens again. And again. 

Now, the media has dubbed her Hostage Girl, nobody remembers her real name, and people are convinced that Blaze is just Gail's boyfriend Jeremy in disguise. Gail's not so sure. All she knows is that when both Jeremy and Blaze leave town in the same week, she's probably doomed. Who will save her now?

But when the villains miraculously lose interest, Gail is able to return to her life…until she wakes up strapped to a metal table by a mad scientist who hasn't read the news. Escaping, and now more than human herself, she's drawn into a secret underground world of superheroes. She'll have to come to terms with her powers (and weakness) to make it in the new society, and it's not easy. After all, there's a new villain on the rise, and she has her sights set on the one and only Hostage Girl.

From Goodreads:
New superhero Gail Godwin, the one and only Hostage Girl, is in big trouble: her nemesis Chelsea is loose, someone close to her is dead, and everybody thinks Gail did it. To make matters worse, Davenport Industries has thrown her into a prison that just happens to be full of the very same supervillains who used to kidnap her on an almost daily basis.

Outside, things aren't going all that great either. There's a conspiracy that runs all the way to the bedrock of the superhero community, and it's affecting everybody Gail loves. With her friends in the crosshairs, it's up to her to escape and get to the bottom of things. Subterfuge, crime-fighting, and running away from everybody you know should be a cinch, right?

Wrong. Gail faces off against hero and villain alike just to stay alive, and you know what they say about supervillains. If you can't beat them…join them. 

From Goodreads:
In the third book of Lexie Dunne's action-packed Superheroes Anonymous series, Hostage Girl returns once again to save the world.

Gail Godwin—once so famous for being kidnapped by supervillains, the media still calls her Hostage Girl—is done with superheroes and their shadowy schemes. She's got a cute boyfriend, a great roommate, and she's even returned to her old job. For the first time in years, life is exactly what she wants it to be.

But when a figure from her past resurfaces, he brings with him a plague that changes the game for every superhero and villain out there. Now Gail must team up with both friend and foe to help save the world she thought she had left behind. 

Gail "Hostage Girl" Godwin is back and ready to save the day—sort of—in #Herofail, the fourth book in Lexie Dunne's action-packed Superheroes Anonymous series!

She's been in trouble before, but Gail Godwin has really stepped in it now.

Once a favorite plaything of supervillains everywhere, the former Hostage Girl has settled into interning for the world's most famous superhero: the Raptor. Sure, fetching coffee comes with a side of fighting crime and night patrol hours are horrible, but that's fine. Gail likes her boss, she likes her job, and things with her boyfriend couldn't be better.

So of course disaster strikes the first time she dons the armor. One ill-timed photo later, she's trending on every platform (and not in a good way), the Raptor is out of commission, and thousands are in danger. And when two of the worst supervillains in history battle for Top Evildoer of All Time, Gail's stuck in the spotlight without a mentor or a plan. It's up to her to uncover old secrets, fight the bad guys, and save the world (again).

Provided she doesn't fall flat on her ass in the process. 

My first review of Superheroes Anonymous, Supervillains Anonymous, How to Save the World
My Review:
I really enjoyed reading these books again, and #HeroFail for the first time. They're just so funny and great superhero books! Gail is smart, strong and very forthright, and I love reading her adventures! She does get into trouble, but she always gets out of it!

I did remember the main plot points of the first two books, but reading How to Save the World, it was basically like reading it for the first time, how much I remembered of it. So I'm really glad that I did a full series read, and reading them back to back was just excellent!

#HeroFail dealt with two plot lines. One, was of Gail becoming Raptorlet and the consequences of that. The other, an ongoing plot, was the Bookman's missing sister, Petra. Rita Detmer is a key figure in the former, and incidentally helps out with the later.

One thing that I really enjoyed about #HeroFail is that it delved into the past, the origin story of Rita and the Fearsome Five. Because it played a big part in this story. It's also why things are the way they are when the first book starts. But I loved how the pieces all came together!

I loved reading these books, and I really wouldn't mind a 5th book and more!

Week 43 Reviews: Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storms, Tower of Dawn, Kingdom of Ash




From Goodreads:
Everyone Celaena Sardothien loves has been taken from her. But she's at last returned to the empire—for vengeance, to rescue her once-glorious kingdom, and to confront the shadows of her past . . .

She will fight for her cousin, a warrior prepared to die just to see her again. She will fight for her friend, a young man trapped in an unspeakable prison. And she will fight for her people, enslaved to a brutal king and awaiting their lost queen's triumphant return.

Celaena's epic journey has captured the hearts and imaginations of millions across the globe. This fourth volume will hold readers rapt as Celaena's story builds to a passionate, agonizing crescendo that might just shatter her world. 

From Goodreads:
The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't.

As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.

Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down? 

From Goodreads:
In the next installment of the New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series, follow Chaol on his sweeping journey to a distant empire.

Chaol Westfall has always defined himself by his unwavering loyalty, his strength, and his position as the Captain of the Guard. But all of that has changed since the glass castle shattered, since his men were slaughtered, since the King of Adarlan spared him from a killing blow, but left his body broken.

His only shot at recovery lies with the legendary healers of the Torre Cesme in Antica—the stronghold of the southern continent's mighty empire. And with war looming over Dorian and Aelin back home, their survival might lie with Chaol and Nesryn convincing its rulers to ally with them.

But what they discover in Antica will change them both—and be more vital to saving Erilea than they could have imagined.

From Goodreads:
Years in the making, Sarah J. Maas's #1 New York Times bestselling Throne of Glass series draws to an epic, unforgettable conclusion. Aelin Galathynius's journey from slave to king's assassin to the queen of a once-great kingdom reaches its heart-rending finale as war erupts across her world. . .

Aelin has risked everything to save her people―but at a tremendous cost. Locked within an iron coffin by the Queen of the Fae, Aelin must draw upon her fiery will as she endures months of torture. Aware that yielding to Maeve will doom those she loves keeps her from breaking, though her resolve begins to unravel with each passing day…

With Aelin captured, Aedion and Lysandra remain the last line of defense to protect Terrasen from utter destruction. Yet they soon realize that the many allies they've gathered to battle Erawan's hordes might not be enough to save them. Scattered across the continent and racing against time, Chaol, Manon, and Dorian are forced to forge their own paths to meet their fates. Hanging in the balance is any hope of salvation―and a better world.

And across the sea, his companions unwavering beside him, Rowan hunts to find his captured wife and queen―before she is lost to him forever.


As the threads of fate weave together at last, all must fight, if they are to have a chance at a future. Some bonds will grow even deeper, while others will be severed forever in the explosive final chapter of the Throne of Glass series.

My first review of Queen of Shadows, Empire of Storms, Tower of Dawn 
My Review:
I just loved reading these books! Reading them for the last time before the series ended, was a bit bittersweet, but these books were just spectacular! Aelin was incredible, with her strength and her impeccable plots and plans! She went through so much, and now she has the future ahead of her!

I had forgotten a lot of what happened in these books. Like how awful Chaol was to Aelin in Queen of Shadows. He was taking his bad feelings for himself out on her, and I really didn't like that! I was still glad that he found his happiness with Yrene, though!

Kingdom of Ash kinda broke me. After the endings of both Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn, there seemed to be a lot of hope-well, besides Aelin being in the hands of Maeve. That was drained pretty quickly. I know that Kingdom of Ash was the end of the series, but it surprised me how many battles there were. Like, at least a 3rd of the book was of a battle.

By this point in the series, there were no big hidden mysteries. They knew about as much as they were going to get, now they had to deal with it. And deal with it, they did. There were a ton of costs, not everybody made it, but it came together so beautifully!

Of course, there were losses. There was one quiet one where we didn't see the death, only the body, and then two big ones. Of course, I'm only counting named characters on the good guys side, not the nameless masses of armies on both sides, as well as the two bad guys. I don't know which one hurt the most, they were all introduced (maybe not by name) in Heir of Fire, so we knew them about roughly the same amount of time.

One thing that I really loved was that brief mention where Aelin was in the world of A Court of Thorns and Roses, and Feyre is visibly pregnant and Rhysand helps Aelin. It was maybe a paragraph long, but just like Laini Taylor's series are connected, so are these two (though less so than the example because there's only the one interaction. Well, besides the world travelers of both series) and that's so great!

I know that this series was really big, so not all the characters that we met got another showing in Kingdom of Ash. One surprise was Nox Owen, which was fantastic! I do wish that the demi-fae of Mistward had been mentioned, but we did get so much, that it would be too demanding, that of all the ones we did get to be ungrateful of the one that we didn't get.

Ok, I do have some questions. Like it was mentioned that not all of the gods that were around were the ones from a different world, but then after Aelin dealt with the Wyrdkeys, it was said that there were no more gods in this world. So I'm confused. Also, I'm wondering, did all of the gods get sent to the hell world? Because some of them, like Mala, seemed to be good, and didn't deserve it!

These books were so great, I loved reading them, I love this series, and I can't wait to read them again in the future!

Book Blogger Hop #55, October 26th

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer's permission, I relaunched the meme on February 15, 2013. Check out the hop here

Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end on Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop's purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

The Question of the week is: Recommend one horror novel for non-horror readers.
(submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer)

This is hard, because I'm more of a non-horror reader. I know I have some favourites, but I can't think of any of the top of my head. I just read Pitch Dark by Courtney Alameda, which was so fantastic! Undead and Unfed by Kirsty McKay, which were great zombie books. Savage and Monstrous by Thomas E. Sniegoski, which was just so thrilling! Dreamfall by Amy Plum, yeah, the horror is strong in this one, I mean, nightmares! Relic by Gretchen McNeil, it was that inevitable horror, you know?  (I had to search horror of my blog to find these books!) What about you guys? Happy reading! 

The Reward Challenge Update #371, October 26th

The Reward Challenge is almost the complete opposite to a book buying ban as you'll end up buying lots of new books throughout the challenge but only after you've completed a certain amount of reading. It was hosted by Good Golly Miss Holly, so thanks to her for starting it!

OK, so I read Queen of Shadows which counts twice as a Prequel & Sequel Challenge 2018 Book, Empire of Storms which counts twice as a Prequel & Sequel Challenge 2018 Book, Tower of Dawn which counts twice as a Prequel & Sequel Challenge 2018 Book, Kingdom of Ash which counts 4 times as a End of Series 2018 Book, Prequel & Sequel Challenge 2018 Book and a WoW Book, Superheroes Anonymous which counts twice as a Prequel & Sequel Challenge 2018 Book, Supervillians Anonymous which counts twice as a Prequel & Sequel Challenge 2018 Book, How to Save the World which counts twice as a Prequel & Sequel Challenge 2018 Book, #HeroFail which counts 5 times as a End of Series 2018 Book, Edelweiss Book, Prequel & Sequel Challenge 2018 Book and a WoW Book.

So I have 21 counts which translates to $10.50 this week! I'll use it to buy a book!

First Lines Friday #389, October 26th

First Lines Friday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. We encourage all of our fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.

-Grab your current read(s)
-Share the first line(s)
-Include the title and author so that other FLF participants can add the book to their TBR Lists!

"I still hadn't learned to fly. For most people, that wasn't unusual. Less than one percent of the population developed superpowers and among those that did, not many actually flew. And not everybody needed to fly, really. Contrary to popular belief, there were more useful powers out there. But given that I was dangling from my fingertips off a rooftop more stories up than I cared to count, flying would have been stupidly helpful right about now." -#HeroFail by Lexie Dunne

Yeah, being able to fly, that would be useful and awesome! Too bad she can't do so yet, if ever! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Random Reads #361, October 25th

Random Reads is a monthly meme (that I'm going to do weekly) hosted by I'm Loving Books to read some books that have been on our TBR piles for a long time. Using Random.org, I got 2711 which turned out to be Kiss of Death by Debbie Viguie! It's been on my TBR pile since July 5th, 2012, and I added it because I enjoy her writing! Happy reading!

Third Sentence Thursday #376, October 25th

Create your own banner at mybannermaker.com!


Third Sentence Thursday is a weekly meme which likes to watch fireworks especially while eating a cookie!
1) Take the book you are currently reading and open it to a random page. Share the third full sentence on that page. (If there isn't a third one – like at the end of a chapter or a blank page – you can share the third sentence of the book or just choose another random page.) Feel free to share more than one sentence, if you feel the need to do so.
2) Review this sentence anyway you want (funny and silly reviews encouraged)
3) Post a link to your sentence at Words I Write Crazy (This Blog)
4) Visit one or two of the other blogs to check out their third sentences!

"Sometimes I feel like you don't respect me as a villain." -Supervillain's Anonymous by Lexie Dunne, page 69.

Yeah, I think that this is hilarious, because being a villain, yeah, that's not a thing to respected, so yeah, it's pretty funny to me! Though I do know she means being respected as a villain, not what I was going with, but yeah. I'm weird.

What are your guy's 3rd lines? Link up below!

Will the Time Come #386, October 25th

Every Thursday I am going to list a book which I really want to read/keep meaning to get to. These are mostly books which have been on my shelf for awhile now but don't have to be, maybe you got it two weeks ago and really want to read it! Thanks to Jodie from Books for Company for this meme!

Putting the fun back into dark fiction, this new collection of humorous and highly entertaining horror-filled tales features sidesplitting stories by such "New York Times"-bestselling authors as Heather Graham, L.A. Banks, and Kelley Armstrong.

Why the time hasn't come yet...
Yeah, I don't know why, maybe because it's an anthology, plus I haven't read the first one. Hopefully I'll read it soon! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Waiting on Wednesday #389, October 24th

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!


#HeroFail by Lexie Dunne
Expected Publication: November 27th, 2018
From Goodreads:
Gail "Hostage Girl" Godwin is back and ready to save the day—sort of—in #Herofail, the fourth book in Lexie Dunne's action-packed Superheroes Anonymous series!

She's been in trouble before, but Gail Godwin has really stepped in it now.

Once a favorite plaything of supervillains everywhere, the former Hostage Girl has settled into interning for the world's most famous superhero: the Raptor. Sure, fetching coffee comes with a side of fighting crime and night patrol hours are horrible, but that's fine. Gail likes her boss, she likes her job, and things with her boyfriend couldn't be better.

So of course disaster strikes the first time she dons the armor. One ill-timed photo later, she's trending on every platform (and not in a good way), the Raptor is out of commission, and thousands are in danger. And when two of the worst supervillains in history battle for Top Evildoer of All Time, Gail's stuck in the spotlight without a mentor or a plan. It's up to her to uncover old secrets, fight the bad guys, and save the world (again).

Provided she doesn't fall flat on her ass in the process. 

Yeah, I'm trying to read this book this week, but I'm not sure at the time of making this post if I have or not. Hopefully I will, because I love this series! What about you guys? Happy reading!
