TwoWitchesAndAWhiskeyRevealBanner

Hi everybody, and welcome to the official cover reveal of Two Witches and a Whiskey, the third book in the Guild Codex: Spellbound series by Annette Marie!

This cover reveal is hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.

By now, I’m sure it is no surprise to any of you that I love Annette Marie’s books. But though I can rave about the writing, the worldbuilding, the pacing, the character development or romance aspects of her books all day long, another amazing (if slightly more superficial) aspect of her books that deserves some love is the absolutely gorgeous covers. Annette Marie has definitely been blessed by the cover gods, but I’ve got to admit that this latest cover is one of my favorites!

So check out the full cover below and while you’re at it, be sure to check out her books, including this lovely Guild Codex: Spellbound series

October 2018: The Month So Many Amazing New Releases Came Out So Of Course I Mostly Re-Read Old Favorites & Listened To One Song On Repeat {Monthly Wrap Up}

October 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my October wrap up!

AND ALSO, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

Given my recent personal developments, I’ve still been a little M.I.A. this month, so again apologies to all my blogger friends! I’m hoping to catch up with all your blogs very, VERY soon. In the meantime, I’m hoping you’ll all have an amazing Halloween! Let me know how you’ll be spending today!

On the reading front not a whole lot of actual reading happened either, but there were some amazing releases this month and some of those I already started on, so that’s a definite plus. Musically, I continued my trend of listening to the same band over and over again and tv-wise… nothing at all happened.

So let’s just get into what I did do during the magical month of October!

Hi everyone, and welcome to my stop for the Three Mages And A Margarita Blog Tour!

I have been a huge Annette Marie fangirl ever since I picked up and fell head over heels in love with her Red Winter trilogy (check out my post on Ten Reasons Why Red Winter Is THE Hidden Gem YA Fantasy Series). I quickly devoured her other series: Steel and Stone and The Night Realm and loved them all just as much. Naturally, when I got accepted to be an Xpresso Blog Tour Host for Annette Marie’s newest fantasy book, I was ECSTATIC! Yes, give me all the Annette Marie books please, and I will gladly talk about them all!

So without further ado, please scroll down to see my review and thoughts on Three Mages And A Margarita, as well as the fun tour-wide giveaway!

September 2018: The Month Of Mages, The Good Place & Stray Kids {Monthly Wrap Up}

September 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my September wrap up!

September has been pretty hectic, which is why I barely read anything. I’ve been reading Mirage for like 3 weeks already, I just keep falling asleep after 2 pages (which has absolutely nothing to do with the book and everything to do with my exhaustion.)

We got the keys to our house, which means renovations have started. We’re doing quite a lot ourselves, so it is a LOT of work and though we were hoping to be finished and able to move in by December, it’s looking more like it’ll be February… or later still. Which sucks. Also, my mom has been having some health issues and is currently hospitalized (she should hopefully be able to go home end of the week though), so I’ve been running from our current home to our future home to the hospital and back constantly and I am exhausted.

I hope things settle back into a routine soon, but in the meantime please be patient with me while blogposts are sporadic and comment replies are SLOW.

Anyway, here’s my September wrap up!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong. 

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?

Hi everybody, and welcome to my August wrap up!

My rating in stars: 4,5 stars
My rating in words: Loved it!

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Ever since last year’s homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn’t hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets.

But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together.

What could go wrong?

With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely.

And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?

July 2018: The Month Of Fluffy Reads, The Fab Five & A Korean Odyssey {Monthly Wrap Up}

July 2018

Hi everybody, and welcome to my July wrap up!

Honesly, my July felt like it lasted foreeever. Why that is, I’m not sure, because I did feel like I did a lot of things, but time just didn’t seem to go by at all. Perhaps it has something to do with the weather, since we’ve been in a heatwave pretty much all month and the high temperatures are making everything feel slow. Though I didn’t read that much, I did get to read 2 new books and re-read 2 old favorites, so I’m happy about that. I also watched quite some TV and listened to some new music. So let’s just dive in: here’s what I did in July!
