January Wrap Up!

I cannot believe that January is over and that it is February! It is simply mind boggling. But anyway, this month I finished one novel, read three novels, and read two graphic novels! (I also put up multiple reviews this month! So check them out if you are interested. Also for easier access, I have added an index of sorts that has the links to all the reviews I have written.)

5271066I started the year off by finishing the Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink. I gave this novel a four out of five stars. I personally liked this novel, but there is a range of feelings on this novel. Some don't like it and some really like it like my mother! :D I personally thought it was really good, but it did have some flaws. I liked the plot line and the characters, but I actually hate a character named Leah because she is evil and ugh. My mom and I had a huge discussion on her character and about a big thing she does in the novel. :)

18363243Next I read Going Down in Flames, which is the first novel in the Going Down in Flames series, by Chris Cannon. I got this book because I was offered an eARC of the second book in the series called Bridges Burned. I gave this book a four out of five stars on Goodreads, but I really would give it a four point five out of five stars. I really liked the world and the dragon shape-shifters! It was really cool. I really love Cannon's writing and characters.

Then I read Bridges Burned by Chris Cannon as previously mentioned. I gave this a five out of five stars! I really loved this book. It was fast paced and the plot was very entertaining. I also once again loved the world and the characters. For a more in depth review check out my blog post for the Release Day Blitz!

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 …
