WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Three months ago, I landed a job as a bartender. But not at a bar—at a guild. Yeah, the magic kind.

I’m not a badass mage like my three smokin’ hot best friends. I’m not a sorcerer or an alchemist, or even a wussy witch. I’m just a human, slinging drinks like a pro and keeping my non-magical nose out of mythic business. Seriously, I know my limits.

So why am I currently standing in a black-magic ritual circle across from a fae lord?

Somewhere behind me, my three mage friends are battling for their lives. Somewhere near my feet is the rogue witch I just knocked out with a stolen spell. And I have about five seconds to convince this very angry sea god not to shmoosh me like a bug.

I’m pretty sure this wasn’t part of the job description.


Note: The three mages are definitely sexy, but this series isn’t a reverse harem. It’s 100% fun, sassy, fast-paced urban fantasy.

Calendar Girls – February 2019 – Black History Month: Favorite Book By A Black Author

Calendar Girls

The Calendar Girls is a monthly blog event that was created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile, and is now hosted by Adrienne at Darque Dreamer Reads, and Katie at Never Not Reading. It was inspired by the 1961 classic song by Neil Sedaka and created to ignite fun bookish discussions among readers and bloggers.

So, just like the song, each month a new theme is chosen (participants will get to vote between two choices), and participating bloggers get to choose their favorite book within the theme, or the book they think best fits the theme, to talk about in a blog post on the first Monday of each month.

January 2019: The Month Of BUSY But Also Exciting Things {Monthly Wrap Up}

January 2019

Hi everybody, and welcome to my January wrap up!

January usually takes forever, but this year it has really flown by. A lot of that has to do with the fact that A) we are in the final stages of renovating and moving in February, so things have been HECTIC and B) I started my new job, which added another level of excitement and busy to my life this month. As a result, I’ve been slacking in the blogging department again and I’m afraid this’ll still last into February and maybe even March. I’ll be around as much as I can, but please be patient with me and know posts and comments may be very sporadic for a while longer.

For now  though, here’s my January wrap up!

DemonMagicAndMartiniRevealBanner

Hi everybody, and welcome to the official cover reveal of Demon Magic and a Martini, the fourth book in the Guild Codex: Spellbound series by Annette Marie!

This cover reveal is hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.

Well, here we are AGAIN with another Annette Marie post! (#sorrynotsorry) I’m sure I already told you that I love Annette Marie’s books and have subsequently raved about the writing, the worldbuilding, the pacing, the character development or romance aspects of her books, but something I tend to rave less about are the covers and that’s a shame because they are GORGEOUS!!  This new cover is no exception, and I’m having trouble deciding which one I love more, the Two Witches and a Whiskey one or this new one. Which Annette Marie cover is your favorite?

Check out the full cover for Demon Magic and a Martini below and while you’re at it, be sure to check out her books, including this lovely Guild Codex: Spellbound series.

2019 Here I Come — My 2019 Bookish Resolutions

My 2019 Bookish Resolutions

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new blog post!

It’s become somewhat of a tradition to set some bookish resolutions every year. This starts with the typical Goodreads reading challenge of how many books I want to read and goes on to include many other (bookish) things. Last year, I just got out of a huge reading slump, so I wanted to keep it casual and kept my goals extra vague. I wanted to read more on a whim, read more diversely and read more backlist books. Did I reach those goals? Uhh, I guess so, but no way to really tell, of course. This year, I wanted to challenge myself with some actual measurable goals. Let’s do this!
