IT ARRIVED!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!!!!

OK, so I got 21 posts in 7 days, What about you guys? Happy reading!

So this week I want to read Blades of Magic, Blades of Illusion, Shadow Girl, and The Wolves of Winter.
It is not a peaceful time in the Algardis Empire. War is raging between the mages and seventeen-year-old Sara Fairchild will be right in the middle of it.

She just doesn't know it yet.

Sara is the daughter of a disgraced imperial commander, executed for desertion. Sara is also the best duelist and hand-to-hand combatant in Sandrin. She lives quietly with her family's shame but when challenged about her family's honor, her opponent inevitably loses.

On the night she finds out her father's true last actions, she takes the Mercenary Guilds' vows to serve in the emperor's army. Using her quick wits and fierce fighting skills, she earns a spot in the first division.

There she discovers secrets the mages on both sides would prefer stay hidden. Dark enemies hunt her and soon it's not just Sara questioning the motivation behind this war.

While fighting mages, blackmailing merchants and discovering new friends, Sara comes across something she's never had before - passion. The question is - can she fight for her empress against a mage who might unwittingly claim her heart?

This is year one of the Initiate Wars. Sara is hoping it doesn't become the year she dies.
Sara Fairchild, duelist and combatant, is out for vengeance. Her father was betrayed. Her mother is dead. All she has left is her desire for revenge and a quest for answers.

Now a member of the Mercenary Guilds' elite guard, she fights on the front lines of her empire's first civil war. But Sara’s priority isn't winning the war for the crown or empire. It's finding out the true circumstances of her family's downfall while keeping one mild-mannered scholar alive.

As emotionally detached as she is from everyone around her, Sara can't seem to shake the stubborn affection of her one friend. When she stumbles upon the secrets of the leadership of the Empress's highest command in the field, Sara will be forced to decide how deep her loyalty is to the crown…before they kill her off and everyone else standing in their way.

Secrets aside everyday on the warfront is a life under threat from the ultimate enemy and yet as Sara quickly finds out, darkness resides on both sides of the war lines.
The Memory Key author Liana Liu delivers a thrilling story of one girl struggling to claim her own identity while becoming an unwitting participant in the strange fate of a wealthy dynasty.

The house on Arrow Island is full of mystery.

Yet, when Mei arrives, she can't help feeling relieved. She's happy to spend the summer in an actual mansion tutoring a rich man's daughter if it means a break from her normal life—her needy mother, her delinquent brother, their tiny apartment in the city. And Ella Morison seems like an easy charge, sweet and well behaved.

What she doesn't know is that something is very wrong in the Morison household.

Though Mei tries to focus on her duties, she becomes increasingly distracted by the family's problems and her own complicated feelings for Ella's brother, Henry. But most disturbing of all are the unexplained noises she hears at night—the howling and thumping and cries.

Mei is a sensible girl. She isn't superstitious; she doesn't believe in ghosts. Yet she can't shake her fear that there is danger lurking in the shadows of this beautiful house, a darkness that could destroy the family inside and out...and Mei along with them.
Station Eleven meets The Hunger Games in this ruthless, captivating story of a young woman's survival in the frozen wilderness of the Yukon after the rest of the world has collapsed.

As the old world dies, we all must choose to become predators. Or become prey.

The old world has been ravaged by war and disease, and as far as Lynn McBride is concerned, her family could be the last one left on earth. For seven years, the McBrides have eked out a meagre existence in the still, white wilderness of the Yukon. But this is not living. This is survival on the brink.

Into this fragile community walk new threats, including the enigmatic fugitive, Jax, who holds secrets about the past and, possibly, keys to a better future. And then there's Immunity, the pre‑war organization that was supposed to save humankind from the flu. They’re still out there, enforcing order and conducting experiments—but is their work for the good of humankind or is something much more sinister at play? In the face of almost certain extinction, Lynn and her family must learn to hunt as a pack or die alone in the cold.

Breakout debut novelist Tyrell Johnson weaves a captivating tale of humanity stretched far beyond its breaking point, of family and the bonds of love forged when everything else is lost. Reminiscent of Station Eleven and The Hunger Games, this is a classic and enthralling post‑apocalyptic adventure and a celebration of the human spirit.

Week 50 Review: Whispering Springs

From Goodreads:
The first secret is personal. The second one is a killer… 

The trip with old friends to Whispering Springs should have been a happy reunion. Yet former army ranger Dylan Burkhart suspects there's something darker at play. It doesn't take long before a game of anonymous secret-telling stirs the embers of a decade-old tragedy. A time when Dylan and Ava North stole a night of passion…and one of their friends died.

Then Ava stumbles upon a written confession of murder. Unable to trust anyone else, Ava and Dylan must confront the truth of that terrible night—and their hidden attraction for each other. Now their reunion has turned into a reckoning. They must find which of their friends is a killer…and fight for their lives and their love.

My Review:
I really enjoyed reading this book! I've really enjoyed Amanda Stevens books, the mysteries are intriguing, and the romances, the couples just connect together so well! Ava and Dylan were characters that I wanted to read more of!



Yeah, I just loved this book, and I can't wait to read more by Amanda Stevens!

Week 50 Review: Brave

From Goodreads:
Ivy Morgan hasn't been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It's more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine... and it's coming between her and the man she's fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart. If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies. Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves--and, ultimately, to save herself.

Because behind ever evil fae Prince, there's a Queen…

Week 50 Reviews: Midnight Blues, Master of Shadows, Incarnatio



From Goodreads:
Samantha and her partner Rafael are homicide cops. Once they were ordered to investigate the case of the cops lying at convent. This corpse was a message for one of the woman inside the convent, Daniela, or Cristál.


Her old nemesis, Donatien, a Kyn gone bad centuries ago, wants her for her powers to heal. He loves torturing people, and she can make them last longer. For years she has run from him, but always he finds her.

From Goodreads:
Will Scarlet, right-hand man to Darkyn leader Robin of Locksley, has been charged with an impossible task: He must regain control of his lord's stronghold, which has been invaded by vicious Darkyn renegades, without harming any captives or attracting the attention of the Brethren, the Kyn's mortal enemies. Things only get worse when Will learns that Reese Carmichael, the mortal woman he loves, is one of the hostages. Reese was sent by her father, a former Brethren inquisitor, to infiltrate Rosethorn, retrieve an ancient vial containing the cause of a medieval plague, and prevent Armageddon from being accidentally unleashed upon the mortal world. Seducing and falling in love with Will Scarlet was never part of the plan, but Reese has no choice other than to use him and the siege of Rosethorn to complete her mission. If she does, she knows he will never forgive her-but if she doesn't, millions of innocent lives will be lost. As Kyn allies Jayr, Byrne, and Lucan arrive to provide Will with reinforcements, Reese's true identity and motives are revealed. Torn between love and loyalty, Will and Reese uncover one last secret from the past that may help them win the final battle...if it doesn't destroy them first.

Week 50 Review: Insurrection

From Goodreads:
Intercepted Broadcast 2190

The virus ran swiftly on the hot summer breeze. Unseen. Unheard. Unknown. It swept through the entire earth in a matter of months, having mercy on no one. Young—old—it didn’t matter.

Brought to us by the Drabs, it was the last thing we expected. But the Drabs knew. They even fought a war over whether or not they should save us.

In the end, it was decided that we were diseased insects who were unfit to breathe their air.

Our air.

So they left the human race to die a miserable death of agonizing pain. Left us with no doctors or medicine. Their plan was to rid the earth of us and to take our home as their own.

What they never expected was the change that would come after the plague. We didn’t all die as they'd planned. Those under the age of twenty somehow managed to survive the disease.

We managed to pull through it, even alone, and we learned to hide ourselves while our bodies changed. Still human, but now something else. Something more powerful. More intuitive.

More pissed off.

We're still here, on this earth, and we're not leaving. This is our home.

Our planet.

Drabs take note and learn to be afraid. You've had a hundred years here on earth, but now your time here is done.

You called us rodents. Insects. Diseased animals. The scraps of humanity—and that, my Drab friend, we certainly are. But what you should have realized is that you can't kill a Scrap. Humanity isn't dead. Not by a longshot. We still have our soldiers and we have our conviction.

Most of all, we have hope.

And we will win in the end. Whatever it takes. Whatever it costs. We won't allow you to take our planet from us. So count your days, Drabs.

The war is on. 

My Review:
Yeah, this book is finally out! Apparently, it was bought in 2005 or something, and only now is coming out, so yeah, a long wait, but well worth it, after all, it's a Sherrilyn Kenyon book! And it's a new world, and I was so excited to read it!

Honestly, I'd call this book a 0.5, not a 1, because it's only 87 pages long. A lot is packed into those pages, but still, it's not a lot of story. I just wish that it was longer, because man, it was just so freaking good and enjoyable!

That the Drabs did that to our world, oh, man, righteous fury, right now! They had some pretty horrible attitudes-and they only got rid of slavery of their species only recently, I think humans did slightly better there, even if we still have some pretty poor attitudes!

I really enjoyed these characters, Joshua who lost his family in all this, and how he is pretty closed off-but still protective of his remaining family. And a maybe love interest in the other main character in this book...but yeah, there's a lot for future books to grow off of!

This book was just absolutely fantastic, and I can't wait for more!

Week 50 Review: The Black Tide

From Goodreads:
Though Winter Halo - the pharmaceutical company behind the evil experimentation on both children and adults - has been destroyed, the danger is far from over. Not only do seven children remain unaccounted for, but some of the vampires are now able walk in light.

The key to stopping the unthinkable lies in finding Ciara Dream, the last member of the trio behind the plot to give full light immunity to both the vampires and the Others. But Ciara, like Tiger herself, is a shapeshifter, able to take on any human form she desires.

To find her, Tiger will need to use every skill in her formidable arsenal, and even that might not be enough to save the city and the people she has started to care about.

Because the vampires are coming, and this time, the lights won't stop them.

Week 50 Review: Can't Get Enough

From Goodreads:
New York Times best selling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale, featuring a rough, tough bad boy brought to his knees by... a kindergarten teacher? 

The king of one-night stands...
To inherit--and destroy--his father's business at long last, Brock Hudson needs a temporary wife. The ruthless ex-military heartthrob has always avoided romantic entanglements. Women are sweet, but vengeance will be sweeter. Or so he thinks. Only one woman will do, but the vulnerable beauty is more than he bargained for—sexier, wittier, and utterly irresistible.

The queen of the deep freeze…
After an abusive first marriage, Lyndie Scott has sworn off relationships. But still she longs for a child of her own. Turns out, the brawler who used to frighten her with only a glance is the answer to her problems. She agrees to his proposal, with a caveat: spend every night in bed with her, then walk away for good when it's time to divorce. Even if she's pregnant. 

A marriage of breathtaking inconvenience... 
As the days pass too quickly and the nights heat up, Brock battles a sense of possession and obsession. Will the former commitment-phobe convince his wife they're better off together, or will she pack her bags and go?

Only the danger of getting caught propels me onward, boots stumbling over rocks and dirt." -Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill

IT ARRIVED!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!!!!

Well, my computer arrived! And I'm really excited, like the title says, this feels a bit like Christmas, especially since this is technically part Christmas gift! I've already got all my files over, my programs installed, and things how I like them, well, when I can figure out how to get them that way! Apparently newer computers have the account from Microsoft, vs. having a user of the computer, so that's different for me!

Old computer was on 40% battery, and it was loads of fun switching the mouse's USB thing between the computers because the old computer doesn't have a working mouse. And yeah, it's great having a computer that touch pad and such works!

I wasn't expecting it to come by today, I was just hoping. I mean, yesterday it checked into Calgary. And then this morning, when I checked it, it said that they'ed scanned for the destination, which I misread and thought was departure for a chunk of today. And then I checked it again and it said delivered! You should've seen my race to the front door! And there it was! I was so excited to open and see it!

Sure, this computer is different from my old one-it's a bit bigger and heavier, and there's a separate number key pad, and the edges of the computer are different, and this keyboard feels so weird! Which some of these might seem like complaints, well, it's just that it's new and I still have to get to used to it, and I can't wait to!

This is my first post (well, published and posted, because I kinda did a few (52-ish) meme posts because I've already started my 2018 meme posts) done on this computer, and I can't wait to write more!

So yeah, the final update in my computer journey!

Random Reads #316, December 14th

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.

Luke is the perfect boyfriend: handsome, kind, fun. He and Emaline have been together all through high school in Colby, the beach town where they both grew up. But now, in the summer before college, Emaline wonders if perfect is good enough.

Enter Theo, a super-ambitious outsider, a New Yorker assisting on a documentary film about a reclusive local artist. Theo's sophisticated, exciting, and, best of all, he thinks Emaline is much too smart for Colby.

Emaline's mostly-absentee father, too, thinks Emaline should have a bigger life, and he's convinced that an Ivy League education is the only route to realizing her potential. Emaline is attracted to the bright future that Theo and her father promise. But she also clings to the deep roots of her loving mother, stepfather, and sisters. Can she ignore the pull of the happily familiar world of Colby?

Emaline wants the moon and more, but how can she balance where she comes from with where she's going?

Sarah Dessen's devoted fans will welcome this story of romance, yearning, and, finally, empowerment. It could only happen in the summer.

Why the time hasn't come yet...
I don't know. Just haven't gotten around to it. Hopefully soon, as always! What about you guys? Happy reading!

Monsterland: Review

From Goodreads:
Welcome to Monsterland—the scariest place on Earth.

Wyatt Baldwin's senior year is not going well. His parents divorce, then his dad mysteriously dies. He's not exactly comfortable with his new stepfather, Carter White, either. An ongoing debate with his best friends Melvin and Howard Drucker over which monster is superior has gotten stale. He'd much rather spend his days with beautiful and popular Jade. However, she's dating the brash high-school quarterback Nolan, and Wyatt thinks he doesn't stand a chance.

But everything changes when Wyatt and his friends are invited to attend the grand opening of Monsterland, a groundbreaking theme park where guests can interact with vampires in Vampire Village, be chased by werewolves on the River Run, and walk among the dead in Zombieville.

With real werewolves, vampires and zombies as the main attractions, what could possibly go wrong?

My Review:
This book was totally awesome! I enjoyed reading it so much, it was a lot of fun! What with monsters in the title, it could've been straight horror, but there was humor mixed in, and of course, a bit of a thriller/action because hey, monsters!

The synopsis hooked me, the concept of opening an amusement part with monsters as the attractions? Like it asks, what could go wrong? Well, everything, since it's a book! Sometimes, synopsis' are misleading, but nope, not this one!

The pace was almost slow in the beginning, but only for a little bit before things became so chaotic and awesome! The thing I like about thrillers is that feeling that they might never get safe, something is always threatening them. This book did a great job of that!

Bad Guy was really awful! I mean, he presented a good goal and good reasonings, but totally twisted it, and that was just horrible. And that Wyatt has a connection to him-however tenuous, well, that was a big twist! Made the ending all the more explosive!

Yeah, this book was fantastic and amazing to read!
