"Robert Ridgely was a young professional living a rather mundane existence, but one he enjoyed. One day, Robert awakes to find he can't remember how he arrived at his destination. The more he finds out about what happened, the more confused he gets and the more time he realizes he's lost from his memory. As Robert persists, eventually he is drawn into an adventure that would change his life forever and place him on a path that he could never have imagined." -Goodreads

I really wanted to like this book, but I ended up actually hating it. The biggest problem I had was that there is no character development and very little world building. Due to this, I couldn't connect or grow to like the characters.  In fact, I kinda disliked them all and didn't care about their lives. If this story was longer and made more sense, I could have enjoyed it. If the story was longer, Monfort could have gotten in a lot more detail that could have developed the world and it's inhabitants better. It feels as if Monfort rushed his way through writing and created a work that reads like a draft. Also I didn't like how rape was joked about in a casual manner at one point. Overall, this was a forgettable story with a few stand out moments, but not for good reasons.

Thanks for reading

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 …

Night of All Evil by J.M. Shorney

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.
