“There are worse things than death. Things that lurk in the shadows and slip into your dreams. Things that have no business existing. Things that once slept … but have now awoken.
For Callypso Lillis, the fae magic that now runs through her veins is equal parts curse and good fortune. For the very thing that bonds her to Desmond Flynn, the King of the Night, also makes her vulnerable to the Thief of Souls, a man who wants to break the world … and Callie along with it.

YA Fiction | Sci-Fi | Dystopia
“Frey and Rafi are inseparable . . . but very few people have ever seen them together. This is because Frey is Rafi’s double, raised in the shadows of their rich father’s fortress. While Rafi has been taught to charm, Frey has been taught to kill. Frey only exists to protect her sister. There is no other part of her life. Frey has never been out in the world on her own – until her father sends her in Rafi’s place to act as collateral for a dangerous deal. Everyone thinks she’s her sister – but Col, the son of a rival leader, is starting to get close enough to tell the difference. As the stakes grow higher and higher, Frey must decide whether she can trust him – or anyone in her life.”

I’ve been lucky enough this year to read a great number of books so trying to choose only ten favorites was incredibly difficult. But at last here we are. The year 2018 has come to an end and to reflect briefly on those months that have passed I’ve come up with my traditional list of the top ten books I read & reviewed this year along with some honorable mentions (because it really was too difficult to choose only ten!) all listed in alphabetical order. I say books I read as opposed to books released in 2018 because honestly then creating these yearly lists wouldn’t be as fun or hard. Let me know if you enjoyed any of these as well! What are some of your top books you read this year? Continue reading
This year I’ve decided that in addition to my usual end-of-year/new-year’s posts of my Top Books Read and Top Anticipated Reads, that I’d like to do a post that highlights some of my favorite self-published/indie author books that I’ve read this year. My blog is open to all submissions and this leads to quite the variety of reads (which I love!) and so this post will be a moment to promote and praise some of my Top 2018 Reads that you won’t find being pushed and flaunted in major bookstores. Hopefully something will catch your eye!
(This year’s post will be particularly long because I’m including some books from years past but the more the merrier!) Continue reading
Melanie (@MNBernard Books) did this tag last year and it sounded like fun so I thought I’d give it a go. I would’ve posted it way sooner but I thought I’d just hold onto it for Christmas 😜 Be sure to check out Melanie’s blog, it’s always full of great reviews and interesting discussion posts! (Note: She’s taking a break from blogging in general to focus on her writing career but definitely check her out!) Continue reading
Vengeful (The Villains #2) by V.E. Schwab (2018)
Fiction | Sci-Fi/Paranormal
“Sydney once had Serena—beloved sister, betrayed enemy, powerful ally. But now she is alone, except for her thrice-dead dog, Dol, and then there’s Victor, who thinks Sydney doesn’t know about his most recent act of vengeance.
Victor himself is under the radar these days—being buried and re-animated can strike concern even if one has superhuman powers. But despite his own worries, his anger remains. And Eli Ever still has yet to pay for the evil he has done.”
