My Really Sad March Wrap Up...

Hey, Readers! Happy April! I hope everyone is having a good weekend and a Happy Easter.

I did not read a lot in the month of March, which is sad, but I could not get out of my reading slump. I read a total of three books in March. I read one book for a book club I participate in and two review books. I had planned to read more than two review books, but I did not get to it.

I started the month off by reading Novelty by Shann Hurst, which I gave a three out of five stars. It was okay, but there were several things about this book that annoyed me. I will talk more about this book in a review. Then I picked up Mr. Ruins by Michael John Grist, but only read ten percent of the book. I was also reading the Split by Noel Thomas Fiems, which I gave four out of five stars. It was a really good book with few flaws. I liked the plot and characters, but I will talk more about my feelings for this book in an upcoming review for it. Lastly, I read The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason, which I gave a five out of five stars because I absolutely loved it. The plot and characters were really awesome and the setting was perfect! The book also had really good descriptive writing. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series!

Thanks for reading! Look forward to my TBR because I'm doing thing a little different this month to get out of a slump.

*My favorite cover of the month is The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason!*

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 …
