June Wrap up/July TBR!

Hey guys! How are you? 

I'm just going to come out and say that June was a really bad reading month for me... I only completed two books and got a chunk of reading done in some others. I read Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead and Demon's Blood by Shari Sakurai. I wrote a review for Demon's Blood, which was a really good book and I will include the link to the review below if you are interested. Funny thing is that both books I completed were about vampires, even though they were totally two different types of vampires, while still being thoroughly enjoyable. On the other hand, I started reading Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, which I finished in the beginning of this month, and I read Apt. Pupil from Different Seasons by Stephen King. Apt. Pupil was good, but not my favorite story from Stephen King and Anna Dressed in Blood was awesome and it got a 5 out of 5 stars from me. 

As for my July TBR, I'm going to be reading The Talisman by Stephen King because my friend wants someone to talk to about it and I'm highly enjoying it. It's over nine hundred pages, so wish me luck since I have very little motivation lately. I'm also going to be reading Severance by Michael Pritsos and Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney for review. If I can, I will also be reviewing Perfect World by Shari Sakurai


Comment what you are reading this month because I'd love to know. :) Hope you guys are having a great reading month!

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 …
