New TBR Additions (24)

Again, not much free time this past week as I had oddly scheduled shifts at my retail job. A good amount of hours lately, too, which is excellent since I now have a trip approaching for which I promised I’d pitch in some finances. 163 more words


Haunted ★★✰☆☆

The Arnaud Manor is creepy, unwelcoming, and perfect for Phoebe, who did something so horrible her family was forced to leave the country and move into her step-father’s old family home. 301 more words

Book Review: Throne of Glass

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas is a YA fantasy book with an interesting cover.

The story follows the tale of Celaena Sardothien, the world’s most renown assassin as she gets out of her life-sentence of digging in salt mines (why is it always salt mines?) The Crown Prince has pardoned her under the stipulation that she enter the competition for the King’s Champion under his patronage. 681 more words
