Review: King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard


Book: King’s Cage, Victoria Aveyard
Series: Red Queen #3
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date February 7th, 2017

In this breathless third installment to Victoria Aveyard’s bestselling Red Queen series, allegiances are tested on every side. And when the Lightning Girl's spark is gone, who will light the way for the rebellion?

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal. Now a king, Maven Calore continues weaving his dead mother's web in an attempt to maintain control over his country—and his prisoner.

As Mare bears the weight of Silent Stone in the palace, her once-ragtag band of newbloods and Reds continue organizing, training, and expanding. They prepare for war, no longer able to linger in the shadows. And Cal, the exiled prince with his own claim on Mare's heart, will stop at nothing to bring her back.

When blood turns on blood, and ability on ability, there may be no one left to put out the fire—leaving Norta as Mare knows it to burn all the way down.

ARC Review: The Intuitives by Erin Michelle Sky & Steven Brown


Book: The Intuitives, Erin Michelle Sky, Steven Brown
Series: Stand Alone
Publisher: Trash Dogs Media
Release Date: July 25th, 2017


In Egypt, an archaeological team discovers the lost tomb of Alexander the Great, breaking its seal for the first time in over two thousand years. Seven years later, every public school student in America takes a strange new test, but only six are chosen to attend a summer program at the mysterious Institute for the Cultivation of Intuitive Cognition, where nothing is as it appears to be, including the students themselves.

Roman Jackson sees the true nature of humanity—literally—hiding his visions from the world to protect his wrong-side-of-the-tracks family. Samantha Prescott is a cynical genius, isolated from her peers by a premonition that even she doesn’t understand. Daniel Walker is a brilliant musician, able to hear people’s secrets through the soundtrack of his mind. Mackenzie Gray is a Muay Thai champion—a Western fighter who still follows the old ways of the wai kru ram muay. Kaitlyn Wright is an orphaned engineering prodigy, desperate to keep the only home she and her grandmother have left. Ashton Hunt is an expert gamer, on the verge of turning pro, and a constant disappointment to his father.

But why is the US government so interested in six teenagers? And what, exactly, is it teaching them to do? When helicopters start crashing and a plane goes missing over the Atlantic, they must band together to uncover the true purpose behind the Institute—and the ancient secrets that lie hidden beneath its surface.

Before history catches up to them.

About Inked Expressions:

The Montgomery Ink Series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan continues with the brother who keeps his secret and the one woman he shouldn’t want.

Everly Law married the love of her life and on the eve of giving birth to their twins, lost him in a tragic accident. Now she’s a single mother working overtime at her bookstore trying to make sure her boys have the life they deserve. Her life is busy enough without her adding dating a Montgomery. As past secrets come to light, she’ll need Storm more than ever—even if she doesn’t realize it.
Storm Montgomery has spent his life atoning for sins that only few know he’s committed. When he lost his best friend, he promised his widow that he’d always be there for her—even when she wanted nothing to do with him. But when a single touch ignites passions they’ve both buried deep inside, he’ll have to remember exactly who is in his arms and that taking chances might be far more dangerous than they bargained for.

Rest In Peace, Kindle

I would like to announce a death and invite you all to a funeral. My Kindle Keyboard, my loyal reading companion for the past six years, has died. It gave up via horizontal lines going across the screen.


This Kindle has been a very good friend to me. I read it for at least an hour every day, it held over a hundred of my dear books, and its battery life was fabulous. However, I guess six years was its limit, especially with how often I used it. It was also free, given as a gift from my aunt who couldn't get into e-readers and preferred her paperbacks. 

However, all good things must come to an end. I have ordered a new Kindle Paperwhite off Amazon, and even though it will never replace my very first Kindle and dear friend, it is time to move on. 

Has anyone ever had to replace a Kindle? If so, how long did yours last?

Stand Alone Sunday #2
 Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope ye're all having a great weekend. It's time for another Stand Alone Sunday! (Sorry for the absence last week, life got in the way, haha).

Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by  Megan @ bookslayerreads.  Standalone Sunday was created to let others know about all the standalone books you have loved, but maybe don’t get the attention they need. Megan created the banner as well and anyone joining in can use it too.

I'm always going to love series, and getting three or four books to fall in love with characters and get the development they deserve. But sometimes, after reading a particular heavy series that would crush you emotionally (looking at you, Sarah J Maas) I love to read a stand alone book that has its issues solved in one book and always ends happily ever after.  

The book I'm going to focus on today is called My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick.
