Our Heroine’s First Attempt at Vendoring: A Guide for First Time Vendors

I know vendoring isn’t the correct word, but for the sake of this title it is.

IMG_2367You may or may not have noticed that I have been missing this week. If you have, I’m flattered! If you haven’t, well I didn’t expect you to any way. The reason for my absence though was that I was a vendor on Friday for a local Star Wars event. You may have seen my Etsy shop. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, click here or on the Store in the menu on the right side.  When the opportunity to become vendors came, we decided to give it a go and see what happened. Since it was our first time, we were exceptionally busy this week getting everything ready. Continue reading “Our Heroine’s First Attempt at Vendoring: A Guide for First Time Vendors”

The Last Star by Rick Yancey (The 5th Wave Series, #3)

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)”

The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye

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”

Some Kind of Happiness by Claire Legrand

“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?

ARC: Thief’s Magic by Trudi Canavan

“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.”

24 Years of Books

Yesterday, I turned 24. It wasn’t a particularly notable birthday, at least not yet, as we took a red-eye flight home from our trip to Florida, which I’ll be writing about later. So I’ve decided to celebrate by taking you on a journey through my life as we recall my favorite books from infancy to now, and how they’ve shaped me into who I am today. Continue reading “24 Years of Books”

The Vagrant by Peter Newman

This book is being released tomorrow on May 10th, which is also my birthday! I’ve already bought some books as my birthday to myself. But other than that, I don’t know what to do to celebrate. I want to throw a party! Continue reading “The Vagrant by Peter Newman”

Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Anstey

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”

April #shelfie

April was another successful reading month. I read 11 books in total, many of which I received for free to review. It is also enjoyable for me to discover new books and authors, and I most definitely have a few good titles for you. Continue reading “April #shelfie”

Fire Girl: A Tale of Witches and Wolves by Andy Mulberry

Alright guys, I’m going to break character for a moment and apologize for being out of it this week. I thought I was going to finally be moving into an apartment. Our little family has been living with my parents for the last 10 months, and we’re ready to get out on our own. But it didn’t work out this time, and I was beyond disappointed. I rearranged my bookshelves though to help me regain a sense of control. Anyway, I promise to be better the rest of the week before I leave for Harry Potterland next week! Hooray!

Okay, and scene! Continue reading “Fire Girl: A Tale of Witches and Wolves by Andy Mulberry”
