Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Everneath by Brodi Ashton

I reviewed Everneath in 2012. In an effort to rebuild my blog, I have decided to bring back some of my reviews.
I really loved Everneath. It was so much more than I was really anticipating and I was sad when it was over. There were a couple of inconsistencies with the plot that sort of rubbed me wrong and a couple of little things that I didn’t get really hip to. But other than that, I was … Keep Reading »

Waiting on WWW Wednesday – Carry On

Waiting on Wednesday – Carry On
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It’s simple – spotlight an upcoming release (or two or three) that you’re excited about. I love meeting new books and anticipating them, so this meme is constant at Jessie Marie Reads.

Reading Queue is a monthly recap and TBR meme hosted by the lovely ladies at Books: A True Story and BookTasty. Pretty simple – make plans for reading in the coming month and recap the reads from the… previous month.

25th Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme, hosted by Tynga at Tynga’s Reviews, where we basically showcase all the goodies (bookish, of course) that we receive each week. Talk about grow your TBR time! : )

Short & Tweet: The Lion and the Rose by Kate Quinn

Short & Tweet: The Lion and the Rose by Kate Quinn

Short and Tweet Reviews are my thoughts crammed into 140 characters or less. This is following in the footsteps of Kate from Midnight Book Girl and her format of the same name. Sometimes I want to say something about a book, but not enough for a full-fledged review. Short and Tweets make that possible. I will also include a little bit more in a Greater-Than-140 (characters) bit.
Short and Tweet Review
The Lion and the Rose was a great end … Keep Reading »

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

Landline by Rainbow Rowell

It seems that Landline is an acquired taste. Maybe that’s the wrong synonym. It’s polarizing. There are people on two opposite sides of the spectrum with regards to liking this book, with little grey area. I happen to be on the side that really enjoyed this latest from one of my favorite authors.
But.
Yes, there is a caveat. This is my least favorite of her works thus far. (I have yet to read Attachments, FYI.) I hope to … Keep Reading »

Choose Reading Challenge

So, it’s been sufficiently established that my reading slump is on the mend. I’ve been reading quite a bit these days and it feels good. But blogging? That’s still a hit-and-miss sort of experience. I remember blogging all day, every day. I took my laptop to work and was working on the blog constantly, oftentimes forgoing work responsibilities in order to make that happen. I have been saying for months that I’m coming back, I’m … Keep Reading »
