WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Rule one: Don’t look at the demon.

When I arrived at my uncle’s house, I expected my relatives to be like me—outcast sorcerers who don’t practice magic. I was right about the sorcery, but wrong about everything else.

Rule two: Don’t listen to the demon.

My uncle chose a far deadlier power. He calls creatures of darkness into our world, binds them into service contracts, and sells them to the highest bidder. And I’m supposed to act like I don’t know how illegal and dangerous it is.

Rule three: Don’t talk to the demon.

All I had to do was keep my nose out of it. Pretend I didn’t find the summoning circle in the basement. Pretend I didn’t notice the shadowy being trapped inside it. Pretend I didn’t break the rules.

But I did, and now it’s too late.


From the author of The Guild Codex: Spellbound comes a new series that will plunge an unprepared young woman into the darkest magic of the mythic world.

Slaying Monsters For The Feeble by Annette Marie {Cover Reveal}

Slaying Monsters Banner

Hi everybody, and welcome to the official cover reveal of Slaying Monsters for the Feeble, the second book in the Guild Codex: Demonized series by Annette Marie!

This cover reveal is hosted by Xpresso Book Tours.

Okay, by now I’m sure it’s no surprise at all to any of you that I’m a big fan of Annette Marie’s books. Her newest series is set in the same world as her Guild Codex: Spellbound series, which I already adore. And though I was admittedly a little bit hesitant about this spin-off series, I was blessed enough to be able to read an advance copy of book one, which comes out on September 13th, and let me tell you: THIS SERIES IS AMAZING AND ANNETTE MARIE OUTDID HERSELF YET AGAIN.

So OF COURSE I was itching to see the brand new cover for book two, and honestly… I think it’s my favorite Annette Marie cover ever. (I know I say that with every new cover, but really, she has been blessed by the cover gods). Take a look for yourself!

My rating in words: Loved it!

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.

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.

Books, Music & More I’m Thankful For In 2018 {Top Ten Tuesday}

181120 Thankful

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today’s post is in honor of Thanksgiving in the US. While we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in Belgium, I do think it’s a nice idea to take a minute and think about everything we’re thankful for. So that’s the meaning of today’s post. To take a minute and reflect on the things that I’ve been thankful for in 2018.

Now, obviously I’m mostly thankful for the people and love in my life. My husband, my family and my friends. They mean the world. Buta post thanking them would end up being an incredibly mushy and sentimental post and since this is in fact a bookish blog, I instead decided to list some books and other forms of entertainment I am thankful for. Because cheesy as it sounds, I am thankful for these. They have helped me in so many ways, so I’m taking the time to spotlight them and tell you why I’m thankful. Let’s go!
