January TBR!

Hi! I hope everyone had a good Holiday! My last week of 2014 flew by! I sadly did not complete my Goodreads goal of 50 books, but only by three I believe. So my Goodreads goal for this year is also 50 books! Maybe I can surpass that! You never know. Any way onto my TBR pile for January!

Since the start of January I have read two books, which are  Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink and Going Down in Flames by Chris Cannon! Both books were really good and I enjoyed them! In both books, there were characters I did not like. I gave them both a 4 stars out of 5. Ironically, both books are also the first book in a series!

I am currently reading three books, which are The Shinning by Stephen King, City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare, and Bridges Burned by Chris Cannon. Bridges Burned is a ebook ARC, which I got for sent to me for review and the review will be up on the 27th, the release date. It is also the second book in the Going Down in Flames series. I am not far in either of the three books, but I will be doing a lot of reading today! I am participating in the Biannual Bibliothon reading sprints as I am participating in the read-a-thon, but I am not doing the TBR or the wrap up for it. I am just participating to put myself in the reading mood and to keep myself there!

When I finish one of these books, I will start reading in the Light of Madness by Hemmie Martin, who is amazing and you should check her out! This is the first book in her DI Wednesday series! I also know for a fact that the second book is fabulous as well. Since I read that first by accident. :D I will be reviewing this as well since the lovely AuthorAmp.com sent me the ebook! Thanks so much Kris and Hemmie! I am really excited to read this :D

Then I will read The Patmos Deception by Davis Bunn, which was also sent to me for review by Bethany House for free. I am also excited to get into this book as well.

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

My Rating: 3/5 stars Average Rating: 4/5 stars Format: ebook ISBN13: 9781310806902
I received a free copy in exchange for a honest review from AuthorAmp.com
Night of All Evil was a good gothic horror novel about a witch named Freya that has a dark past that comes back to haunt her and her family. Freya was my favorite character and I really enjoyed reading from her point of view. The thing I liked about her was how she acted in the situations she is placed in. She also is just an interesting person that also happens to be a super powerful witch, which is pretty cool. In fact once I started this novel, I had a hard time putting it down. While I really enjoyed reading the story, the character development was just okay and it was kind of predictable. However, it was still a good read that grabbed my attention and kept me entertained.                                                                                                   Thanks for reading!                                            …

Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon Tips for All!

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great month. I am super excited since the Dewey's 24 Hour Read-A-Thon is almost here. I have only done this once, but I learned a lot during that 24 hour period. Now I am going to share my advice with you.

1. Read What YOU Want to Read.

This is incredibly important. If you are not reading something you want to read and your pushing yourself to read it, then put it down and take a break. Read something you want or take a nap. If your doing this, it could led to a reading slump or watching Netflix... I totally did that! Not that there is anything wrong with taking a break! Or watching Netflix...


2. Take Breaks, Even Naps!

This is key to having fun during this read-a-thon! If your eyes start to blur, take a nap. If your hungry or want to watch Netflix for a little bit. Do it! Or you could cheer other people on during the read-a-thon. If you didn't sign up to be a cheerleader, join #TeamRogue and cheer. :D Just do not over work yourself.

Anyone? by Angela Scott

I finished this book in about three hours...
I also tweeted her to see if there would be a sequel...which I want really bad...

"The end of the world? That’s the stuff of Hollywood blockbusters and deep philosophical exercises in school. No need to sweat it. So when sixteen-year-old Tess’s doomsday-dad builds a bomb shelter in their suburban backyard, everyone thinks he’s gone crazy….
…Until fire rains down from the sky, sinking whole cities into colossal craters and setting much of the world ablaze.
Tess’s dad gives her a few short minutes to gather her emergency bag and her freaked-out kitten, then leads her outside and into the underground shelter. Terrified, the last thing she expects is for him to leave her there all alone, but he has no choice—he must find her missing brother. Before leaving, he makes Tess promise to keep the hatch door shut, not to open it for anyone but him, and to stay put until he returns.
But he forgot to tell her one thing: What is she supposed …
