Top Ten Books On My Spring TBR List

  1. The Secrets of Yashire by Diamante Lavendar
    Emerging From the Shadows is a young adult fantasy adventure that occurs within the framework of a young girl’s subconscious mind. The main character, Brianna, finds herself thrown into a world called Yashire where she is forced to deal with circumstances that are threatening Yashire’s existence. Against her will, she is sent on a journey to restore unconditional love back to the land while also contending with the evil force in the land, Zolan.
    The Secrets of Yashire
  2. The Unraveling by Laurel Wanrow (The Luminated Threads: Book 1)
    In 1868 England, the competition to control agriculture is fierce…and nobody says no to Derby’s industrial magnate. Except Annmar Masterson. The nineteen-year-old rejects his improper advances and instead takes an advertising position on a farm. She discovers the isolated valley is home to gifted species—including animal and plant shifters—who hide their lives from the rest of England. The blue threads only she sees on their clockwork machinery prove her heritage is rooted with theirs, but their world is so different that Annmar doesn’t know if she’ll ever belong.

REVIEW: Destiny Kills (Myth & Magic Book #1)


Title: Destiny Kills
Author: Keri Arthur
Type: Kobo e-book
Pages: 336
Published: 28th October 2008

3 Stars

I enjoyed this book, it was a quick and easy read, had a great concept but maybe needed a few parts of it expanded a little.

Destiny woke up on an Oregon beach beside a dead man with little memory of who she is or why she is there.  All she knows is that she needs to wait for dawn to perform a ceremony to dispose of his body.  She also knows that she needs to keep moving and needs to get to Maine.

Once Egan’s body is disposed of in the dawn ceremony, Destiny takes off and ends up playing chicken with Trae, who is Egan’s brother. Trae is a thief with a sexy, knowing grin and a secret agenda of his own.

By the second or third chapter it becomes known to Destiny that she is a Sea Dragon who managed to escape from a lab in Scotland who kept her captive for over 10 years with her mother, Egan and a bunch of children.

It’s Spring here in Western Australia and it is so lovely to be able to sit outside and soak up the sun whilst reading a book! The temperatures are already reaching 26 degrees (78.8 Fahrenheit). Summer is coming along swift as ever 🙂



Top Ten Tuesday #6


Today’s Topic for Top 10 Tuesday featured by The Broke and The Bookish is a Freebie so I have chosen to do:

Top Ten Series I Loved But Never Wrote A Review For

  1. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (8 very large books)
    The Outlander Series is a sequence of multi-genre novels and shorter works written by Diana Gabaldon that feature elements of historical fiction, romance, mystery, adventure and science fiction/fantasy. The stories focus on two main characters, Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser, and their adventures in the 18th and 20th centuries. It has now also been made into a television drama series Outlander on Starz.
  1. Graceling Realm by Kristin Cashore (3 books)
    Graceling is a young adult fantasy novel by Kristin Cashore, and her literary debut. The book earned a place on the Publishers Weekly Best Books of the Year for 2008 and received generally favorable reviews. It was followed by a companion book entitled Fire, and a sequel, Bitterblue. Fire takes place about 35 years before Graceling in a nearby land. Bitterblue takes places six years after Graceling, in the seven kingdoms.
  1. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (6 books) Continue reading



Title: The Reluctant Sacrifice
Author: Kerr-Ann Dempster
Type: ARC e-book
Pages: 263
Published: 7th August 2015

5 Stars

This was a spectacular read!

Amarith was torn apart by sibling rivalry and the losers were stripped of their immortal birthright and banished to earth.  A prophecy has given the Amarithians hope. A child of Shaw born on the twelfth day of the twelfth month must be a willing sacrifice, and only then will the exiles be forgiven and welcomed home.

Aubrey Shaw is a Jumper, she can leap between bodies, which has assisted her and her mother to allude the Hawk Unit, led by her former love Joshua, but how many times can your soul be ripped apart and put back together again before you lose yourself?

This was an effortless read that I just couldn’t put down, every chapter had me on the edge of my seat wanting more. I was immersed in every part of this book, I loved reading about the present circumstances, and then being thrown back into the past in Aubrey’s dreams to gain insight about what lead them to where they are now.  Continue reading

REVIEW: RavenStorm Witches – A Coven of Bitches

RavenStorm Witches - A Coven of Bitches

Title: Ravenstorm Witches
Author: Misha Mckenzie
Type: ARC e-book
Pages: 126
Published: 15th May 2015

4 Stars

“The RavenStorm Witches have taken the art of revenge to an all new level. Hilarity ensues when Maeve and the rest of her Coven of Bitches take on the liars, manipulators, and bullies who’ve hurt or betrayed their loved ones. And for those needing a little something extra… there’s always the stock from the better-off-dead potions cabinet.”

This was a brilliant read! I fell in love with the cover of the book and then I fell in love with the content!

This book was written as a series of short stories each featuring an issue that one of the witches was facing and it was an enjoyable read and provided such a good laugh.  I really loved reading about the witches’ hilarious sense of justice.
