First of all, Merry Christmas!! I often do a little post for Christmas and I once more could not resist wishing you all a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you so so much for spending your time with me this past year and what a crazy year it has been. I pray you are able to spend this holiday surrounded by love, joy, and (even if virtually) family, and that you not only enjoy this time with your favorite foods for a Christmas feast but with a book or two and a delighted hope for the new year to come. Never let anyone or anything rob you of your hope. Hope reigns eternal, you need only turn towards it. ♥

Do you ever get so excited about a new book that you keep putting off reading it until you can find a perfect day with nothing but free time so that you can read this (hopefully) amazing book completely uninterrupted by anything other than maybe food, the occasional desperate bathroom break, and sleep (although you’ll push your body to its limits to stay up until you’ve finished the whole book)??

Welcome to year 2017 A.D. on planet Earth! I’m not sure if I’m ready for everything this year will hold but one thing I’m always excited about is the release of new books! I’ve already read a few ARCs for books that will be published in 2017 and I’m incredibly excited to read more! Here is just a small selection of books that are to be published in 2017, all of which I am most excited to read (not including the ARCs that I have already read).
WORLDS OF INK AND SHADOW
2016 BLOG TOUR
Book: Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley
Publication Date: January 5, 2016
Publisher: HarperCollins Canada / Amulet
Charlotte, Branwell, Emily, and Anne. The Brontë siblings have always been inseparable. After all, nothing can bond four siblings quite like life in an isolated parsonage out on the moors. Their vivid imaginations lend them escape from their strict upbringing, actually transporting them into their created worlds: the glittering Verdopolis and the romantic and melancholy Gondal. But at what price? As Branwell begins to slip into madness and the sisters feel their real lives slipping away, they must weigh the cost of their powerful imaginations, even as their characters—the brooding Rogue and dashing Duke of Zamorna—refuse to let them go.
Gorgeously written and based on the Brontës’ juvenilia, Worlds of Ink & Shadow brings to life one of history’s most celebrated literary families. Continue reading
I hate when people ask me what my favorite book is because that is utterly impossible to answer! More than that I can’t even come up with a list of favorite books because the order in which I love them changes depending on where I’m at in life, when I last read it, or even what I had for breakfast (well, you get the point). So, with all of that said I did try my best to come up with a few “Top 10” lists for you all and feel free to comment below with some of your own favorites and any suggestions you have for me to read in 2016!

There are times when my thought-streams puddle and pool together and I must babble and type them out to free up some mental space in my head. And yes okay now that I’ve written that sentence I realize how weird it sounds…cool. Onward!
When it comes to a book trilogy you have a beginning (Book 1), a middle (Book 2), and an end (Book 3). But what I want to discuss this fine overcast morning is Book 2: The middle child of books. Continue reading
