I'm on hiatus!

Wahoo, we've only got a few more days left in 2018 and I need to figure my ish out. I may pop in and out to leave a few comments, but mostly I'll be reading, watching terrible Christmas movies (GIVE ME YOUR RECOMMENDATIONS), perhaps baking, and planning out my 2019. 

Take care loves!

Les Petites Revues [#9]

It's another week of mini reviews! This week I review an engrossing contemporary novel, a problematic urban fantasy, and a boring romance. What a mixed bag!

Les Petites Revues [#8]

I think I'm really digging these mini reviews guys! This week, I bring you a not-so-YA fairytale, a summer cute opposites-attract romance, and a Christmas romance with not a lot of Christmas.

Waiting on Wednesday [#150]

Title: Slayer (Slayer #1)
Author: Kiersten White
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Publication Date: January 8, 2019

Into every generation a Slayer is born…
Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Nina’s mother is a prominent member of the Watcher’s Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.
Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.
Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Nina’s father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen One—she’s the last Slayer, ever. Period.
As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, there’s plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Nina’s dreams…
But it’s not until bodies start turning up that Nina’s new powers will truly be tested—because someone she loves might be next.
One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard (goodreads).

I'm thankful for...

It's Thanksgiving week and honestly, it's been a pretty rough week for me. Matt's grandmother passed last week so this week is filled with family. Given the recent events, and the fact that Thanksgiving is just in a few short days, I decided to remind myself of the good.
