Started this one a week ago. I was really invested at the start, but now I am finding it slow going. Mind you, I‘ve only been reading it for the last week and a half and am still not quite halfway through. We‘ll see how it goes.

The Wizard's Ward | Deborah Hale

Loved the concept, and the storyline was pretty good. Predictable, but okay. The ending though... what a let down after all of the build-up.

Started this one the other night. Currently 80 pages into it, and liking it so far. Here‘s hoping it continues to resonate with me. 😁 #lostforwords

Interesting what Facebook digs up when you mark something as currently reading on goodreads. 🙄 Not entirely sure why I read this book. I hate zombies, and was scaring myself silly reading this book last night. 😂

Diving back into this series. I have loved all of the books so far, and am hoping that this one is just as amazing!

Wayback playback. Reading my shelves, trying to make room for new stuff, so I am finally getting around to reading books that I bought years ago.

When your kiddo crashes next to you, you read. Loving this series! I actually didn‘t expect to love it as much as I do, though I still like ACOTAR more.

Thoroughly enjoying this book so far. I kept walking past it on my bookcase, and it was just begging to be read. Then I saw a review online, which intrigued me, and that settled things—I had to read it, right now. 😊

It was an okay read. Not as great as the other three books I have read by Seanan McGuire, but it was still good. I was able to pick this one up yesterday, and finish it the same day.

Sparrow Hill Road | Seanan McGuire

Seriously, the more I read, the more I fall in love with Seanan McGuire‘s writing. She has this habit of making you become so emotionally invested in the characters/book. Her writing is so atmospheric and just, intensely awesome.

I liked it, but certain parts ticked me off. I enjoyed the first two books a lot more than this one. It was still good. I just didn‘t like some of the situations that the characters were placed in.

My view right now. 😍 #8monthold son, and a good book. Surprised by how much I am liking this trilogy. The first book was okay, but the second one suckered me in. Here‘s hoping this one is just as good. #whoneedssleepanyway

So I love this book. I love this series. Mister Whiskers is cool, and I posted this on Kristen Britain's Facebook page and she replied. (Fangirl'ing hardcore over here.) Loved this instalment in the series, and can't believe how long I have to wait for the next one. 😢

annkuch13 Omg! That's so cool that she replied! She commented on one of my instagram posts and it made my week! I'm about 300 pages in and Mister Whiskers is the best!!! 3y
CorLostForWords @annkuch13 That is awesome that she commented on your post as well! I hear you! It made my week too! Lol. Oh, Mister Whiskers.... 😍 3y

Inhaling Kelley Armstrong's newest release. I love all of her books, and really like her writing style. I'm already halfway through, and I only started it yesterday evening. 😳😍 The bookmarks and pins/ badges posted in the picture are from my order from #boookmarky on etsy. They are all very pretty. They even threw in a couple of extras. 😍Thank you! 😍

This book is probably one of my favourite books, if not THE favourite book that I have read. Holy. My heart. I have never felt the way I felt with this book. The characters are so perfectly written, and the world-building. I did not want to finish it. Knowing it would have an ending like that. I ugly cried with this one, and openly seethed and spit venom at other characters. My heart. Definitely going to be one of my most frequently re-reads.

Not as good as I was hoping it would be. Took a long while to get into it. Seemed to have a lot of running around and not really getting anywhere. I wasn't as invested in this read, and didn't really connect with the main character as much as I hoped I would. When the action kicked in, and the story started to move, then it got interesting, and I couldn't put it down.

I've had this one sitting on the review shelf for a couple of years. Very fast read, but completely one dimensional, and felt more like a first draft manuscript. Good idea, but no execution. I ranted to my fiancé and mother-in-law about this one.

Just starting #GhostlyEchoes. I finished #BeastlyBones early last week as an ebook from the library. The hard copy finally came in this week. I am really enjoying this series, and am kicking myself as I started it this year. #Jackaby was on my shelf for the last several years... 😕
