It’s a big week for me. I am a vendor at a large Star Wars event on Friday, so most of my energy has been been put into preparing for that. I have new Star Wars designs in the store, and will be adding more, so please take a look!
But I couldn’t resist when The Last Star ended up in the mail on my front porch. I just had to read this book. Continue reading “The Last Star by Rick Yancey (The 5th Wave Series, #3)”
No. No. And let me think, NO! This is not how I expected this review to be going at all. I was so excited for this book.
“For the winner of the game, there would be unimaginable power.
For the defeated, desolate oblivion.
The Crown’s Game was not one to lose.”
Funny because it seemed to me that Nikolai and Vika’s resolve to win the game lasted for all of two seconds! Continue reading “The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye”
“Everything looks like a painting: blue sky, white house, bright flowers.
How can the world look so perfect when I feel so broken?”
Isn’t that last sentence gorgeous?

“Citizens of Leratia be warned,” it read. “MAGIC IS RUNNING OUT! We are fast speeding towards a FUTURE without sorcery. Without HEALERS. Without a DEFENCE AGAINST INVADERS. Without MACHINES. The Society of Magical Preservation invites you to learn of this IMPENDING PERIL, and how it might be AVOIDED.”

I’m not here typing this on this day. Today, I’m away from my computer, enjoying the pleasures of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Feel free to be jealous. I certainly would be if our circumstances were reversed.
Before I departed on my holiday to Florida though, I had the pleasure of finishing Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Anstey, and it was stupendous! I was feeling frustrated last month with the excessive amount of romance books I was reading. I don’t particularly enjoy the genre in general, and every book I read seemed to be oozing with silly, romantic fancies. If I’m going to read a romance novel though, then I want to read more like this one! Continue reading “Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Anstey”
I apologize in advanced for any uncouth language or behavior displayed in my following remarks. My feelings are a little mixed when it comes to this book. And when I say a little, I mean a lot.
My first words upon finishing were none other than, “What the hell?” I couldn’t help but blurt it out loud. Continue reading “January Dreams by Carrigan Richards”
As you may have noticed, I’ve done some redecorating. I proudly present to you Of Books and Bailey. I do so hope you like what I’ve done with the place. I find the revisions not too shabby myself, if I may say so. You might want to check out the updated About page as I have re-branded and refocused. I am confident in the direction I’m heading. Continue reading “Redecorating and The Lack of a Soul”
I’ve had quite the week since we brought Grimm home on Friday. He’s a perfect gentleman. A peeing, chewing, occasionally barking gentleman. But a gentleman nevertheless. I’m enjoying having him immensely, but between Grimm, Oliver, and both Taylor and I being sick, I’ve scarcely had time to do anything that requires more of my brain power.
