February TBR and Bookish Updates!

Hi girls, boys and everyone in between! How are you? Did you have a good month? Any favorite books of the January? Are you reading anything good at the moment? Just curious :)

At the moment I am currently reading The Patmos Deception by Davis Bunn and City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. For the Patmos Deception, I am about 65 pages in and it's interesting. I am also enjoying it. As for City of Lost Souls, I am on page 11 and I have been trying to read this for a while. Not that there is anything wrong with it. I just do not want to finish it, but at the same time I want to read it. I think this is due to the fact that it is the second to last book in the series and I do not want the series to end!

But anyway, I also finished The Shining by Stephen King this month as well as a few other works like Einstein's Beach House by Jacob M Appel, Bobo by Richard Schiver, and Chestnuts: A True Story about Being Bullied by Gilbert Ohanian. I will be reviewing Einstein's Beach House and Chestnuts: A True Story about Being Bullied as well as a few others.

Other novels I would like to read this month are Mr. Ruins by Michael John Grist, Novelty by Shann Hurst, and The Warrior Heir by Cinda Williams Chima. The Warrior Heir happens to be my TBR jar pick of the month, which I am going to get back in the habit of doing. An if by some miracle I read all of these books, I'd like to pick up A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness or Red Queen by Christopher Pike.

So that is all for my February TBR. What are you reading this month? Also interesting fact, I am currently obsessed with Bebe Rexha, Bea Miller and Sirens & Sailors for music, which is kinda a weird mix. Oh well! :D Also if you are interested, I'll leave my Spotify reading playlist link below, which consists of the these three artists.

Any who, I'll "see" you readers in another post! Byee!

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
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 …
