Kin of Kings by B.T. Narro

Kin of Kings by B.T. Narro

Things in the book seem to work out, and things just really start going right for Basem and his father. They make a key friend with one of the people who was watching the trials, and turns out to be a key person and family relation to the king. If you can manage to get past these miraculous strokes of good luck in the beginning, the book gets much better.

My Life Among the Underdogs by Tia Torres

My Life Among the Underdogs by Tia Torres

In one particular chapter she talks of a hurricane Katrina dog who makes an impression on one of her friends who has gone to help care for the displaced dogs and reunite them with their families. In this chapter she also talks of how cruel people can be in using the dogs to make a quick buck with no concern for the dogs what so ever. This chapter in particular really got to me and I had to put this book down and go to a different book to unwind my mingled feelings.

Sabriel by Garth Nix

Sabriel by Garth Nix

The story is sad in a way. Because of the goings on and what has happened in the past, Sabriel doesn’t get to see much of her father. And then he is killed before he can teach her more of what she is, and what she can do. Sabriel then must become the Abhorsen, a person who helps spirits to the other side.

Dread Nation by Justina Ireland

Dread Nation by Justina Ireland

There were moments of hilarity, and even the chapter titles will have you laughing. Jane also has a way of being perhaps a little too strong minded at times and gets herself in hard situations. She will also look out for you no matter what. You may have made life hard for her but you do something silly like wear a full corset, and because you can no longer get a full breath can’t keep up with the other girls running to a conference. She may pretend to have something happen knowing you’ll be asked to stay behind with her and you can all catch up to the others at the conference.

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor


Oh my gosh, I loved it! I would love for more books from this world but I’m happy with how everything was wrapped up. I was a bit confused in the beginning because we meet some new characters in a different land. Before too long though it started to make sense because we switched back to Lazlo and Sarai.

The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons

The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons

I recommend you try The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, be mad, be happy, and even take in sudden breaths out of shock. This book has everything including cute notes at the end of each chapter explaining things almost as a citation or defining who monsters or gods are. The notes at the end threw me off to begin with, but I got used to them and even looked forward to these little tidbits.

A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab

A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab

It’s been a while since I first picked up A Darker Shade of Magic, the first book of the Shades of Magic trilogy, so I was a little lost in the beginning as I worked to remember who the main characters where and what each had done in the first book.

The Collector by Nora Roberts

The Collector by Nora Roberts

Oh my gosh, what a ride. First everything is going smooth, Lila is getting settled in to the house she is house sitting, and then she witnesses a woman thrown from a window to her death. Turns out, it was the wrong murder to witness…not that there is a right murder to witness, but if you have to witness a murder, this is not the murder you want to be drawn into.

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

I went into this story blind, only knowing it was big amongst the BookTubers. Never realized, or maybe I forgot, the title is actually the name of the main character we follow.

The main character, as you know now, is Strange the Dreamer. He dreams of a town called Weep. It’s an ancient town that disappeared from everyone’s memory.
