Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by  Jill from Breaking The Spine that shows the upcoming books that many of us are anticipating! This week, I’m waiting for…


wayfarer.jpg

Title: Wayfarer (Passenger Series #2)

Author: Alexandra Bracken

Expected Publication: January 3rd 3017

Publisher:  Disney-Hyperion

Goodreads Summary:

All Etta Spencer wanted was to make her violin debut when she was thrust into a treacherous world where the struggle for power could alter history. After losing the one thing that would have allowed her to protect the Timeline, and the one person worth fighting for, Etta awakens alone in an unknown place and time, exposed to the threat of the two groups who would rather see her dead than succeed. When help arrives, it comes from the last person Etta ever expected—Julian Ironwood, the Grand Master’s heir who has long been presumed dead, and whose dangerous alliance with a man from Etta’s past could put them both at risk.

Meanwhile, Nicholas and Sophia are racing through time in order to locate Etta and the missing astrolabe with Ironwood travelers hot on their trail. They cross paths with a mercenary-for-hire, a cheeky girl named Li Min who quickly develops a flirtation with Sophia. But as the three of them attempt to evade their pursuers, Nicholas soon realizes that one of his companions may have ulterior motives.

As Etta and Nicholas fight to make their way back to one another, from Imperial Russia to the Vatican catacombs, time is rapidly shifting and changing into something unrecognizable… and might just run out on both of them.

I have the first book on my shelf, and now I have a deadline to read it before the second book comes out!!! My birthday happens to be the following Sunday, so I think this will be the perfect present from my hubbie (wink wink, nudge nudge)

What are you waiting for this week?

yellowbrickwar.jpg

Title: Yellow Brick War (Dorothy Must Die Series #3)

Author: Danielle Paige

Published: March 15th 2016 by HarperCollins

Goodreads Summary:

Once upon a time, there was a girl from Kansas named Dorothy.

You might know her as the Girl Who Rode the Cyclone. She ended up in Oz, where she became friends with the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion. But the temptation of magic was too much for her. She let it change her. Her friends became twisted versions of their former selves.

The magical land of Oz is now a dark and menacing place.

My name is Amy Gumm. Tornadoes must have a thing about girls from Kansas, because I got swept away on one too. I also landed in Oz, where Good is Wicked, Wicked is Good, and the Wicked Witches clued me in to my true calling:

Assassin.

The only way to stop Dorothy from destroying Oz—and Kansas—is to kill her. And I’m the only one who can do it.

But I failed. Others died for my mistakes. Because of me, the portal between the worlds has been opened and Kansas and Oz are both in danger. And if I don’t find a way to close it?

Dorothy will make sure I never get to go home again.

I loved the first two books, and I have had this on my shelf since the summer!!! I really need to read it though before the next book in the series comes out!!

What’s on your TBR shelf this week?

Red Death Review

Red Death (Book #1) by Jeff Altabef reddeath

Expected Publication: November 28th 2016 by Evolved Publishing

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

Format: eArc provided by author

Goodreads Summary:

What happens when everything you believed turns out to be a lie?

Every child of Eden fears the Red Death. All those afflicted with the plague die young, their souls stripped away as punishment for ancient sins long forgotten. For centuries, Guardians have protected Eden from the Red Death by killing outsiders who stray too close.

Seventeen-year-old Aaliss is a highly-trained Guardian, but when her rather odd thirteen-year-old brother, Wilky, discovers a cure to the plague, her world turns upside down. Branded as traitors by the corrupt High Priest, Aaliss and Wilky are forced to seek refuge in the last place Aaliss thought she’d ever go—beyond the boundaries of Eden and into the land of the Soulless. Here they must navigate a medieval world filled with witches, magic, and warrior kingdoms run by Elders only a few years older than her.

Aaliss yearns to return home, but when her heart tugs her deeper into the world of the Soulless, she questions everything she once believed. Has her soul been taken? Will she and Wilky fall victim to the Red Death, or might they die sooner in the center of a battle that threatens to tear apart the Soulless world? Or… might Aaliss finally find, against all odds, what her heart has yearned for all along?

You have a responsibility. What you do with it is up to you, but you cannot pretend it doesn’t exist. If you fail to take it seriously, it will take you , and you will lose all ability to choose your way.

I didn’t really know what I was getting into when I agreed to read this book. Honestly, it sat in my Kindle books for a few months, before I remembered I had to read it before next week. Man, once I started reading it it was so hard to put down until I finished!

This dystopian novel is full of twists and turns that was well written and  I was easily sucked into it. Red Death is told in multiple points of view, which at first I found a bit difficult because I didn’t know how they would all fit in with each other. After the first couple of POV’s, the author quickly started drawing connections to some of them and by the end you knew how everyone was essential to the story.

The plot moved not very quickly, but quick enough for me. Aaliss and her brother Wilky run away from Eden before they are killed and search for the ingredients for the cure. This was definitely a heroes journey, just maybe not in so many steps as in Joseph Campbells Monomyth. For the entirety of the book Aaliss thought she would find the cure and go back to Eden to claim her innocence, but by the end she has to make a choice.

Aaliss is a very strong and independent main character, and she has a strong moral code for a guardian of Eden. Her sole purpose is to keep Wilky safe from the Soulless and to find the cure for him to take so he won’t die from the Red Death, which before Wilky there was no cure and once you contracted it you die. I think out of all of the characters, Aaliss had the most character development. In the beginning it was just her and Wilky, and by the end she started accepting more people into her little group. Which spoke volumes after being taught that the Soulless were not people at all but servants of the Dark One.

Wilky is probably the most interesting character out of the bunch, and the novel seems to quietly revolve around him and his special powers. He can sometimes get visions of the future that are not set in stone, and so he basically sets everything in motion to get everyone prepared for what is to come. He is wanted by the Dark One for some reason, and hopefully in the second book we will get more insight into why.

Overall, this book has a bit of everything for everyone. This had adventure, witches, religious zealots (who may or may not be following a false prophet), blackmail, and a tiny bit of romance. I am ready for book 2 to come out so that I can see what happens to Aaliss and Wilky in the upcoming battle!

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Screenplay/Movie Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Original Screenplay bfbawtfty J.K. Rowling

Published: November 18th 2016 by Pottermore from J.K. Rowling

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Goodreads Summary:

When Magizoologist Newt Scamander arrives in New York, he intends his stay to be just a brief stopover. However, when his magical case is misplaced and some of Newt’s fantastic beasts escape, it spells trouble for everyone…

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them marks the screenwriting debut of J.K. Rowling, author of the beloved and internationally bestselling Harry Potter books. Featuring a cast of remarkable characters, this is epic, adventure-packed storytelling at its very best.

Whether an existing fan or new to the wizarding world, this is a perfect addition to any reader’s bookshelf.

If you haven’t read this yet, I definitely suggest going to the movie first so that nothing is ruined. That way when you read this screenplay, you can appreciate the notes about the scenes a little bit more. At least for me, as I was reading I was able to go back to the movie and understand the scenes a little bit more.

Plot wise the movie/book was very simple. Beasts are accidentally let loose, and then we spend about an hour and a half on trying to catch them all. There is also the side plot that is the reason this franchise will be 5 movies instead of just the one. I mean we have to have  at least one wizard wreaking havoc and causing mayhem for our heroes.

Let’s talk about the characters. I just love Newt! Eddie Redmayne was FANTASTIC in this movie! I have seen him in some of his other movies, but I think this might be his best one yet. It also helps that he is a fellow Hufflepuff :).

Tina Goldstein was probably my least favorite character for about 95% of the movie and book. I didn’t like how she kept trying to turn Newt in so that she could get her job back. Unfortunately, we get to know her a little bit more and by the end I wasn’t annoyed with her anymore.

The Second Salemers were very dark and creepy, every single time with no fail. They are against any form of magic and try to tell the no-majs that witches are among them, and they are the reason for the weird happenings in New York.

This movie/book has such a wide diversity of characters, and I love it! With so many characters, it is almost a little difficult to know who you can trust to be on the side of good and who you can’t. There was a twist at the end that I did not see coming! I won’t share any details, but it was very good!!! =D JK Rowling did a fantastic job with this screenplay, and I can’t wait to see what the next 4 movies!

I would like to know where I can get my own Niffler, because I want one sooo badly!!! He was so stinkin’ cute in the movie and I loved that he was on the cover underneath the jacket. Although, he should come with a warning label “hide all sparkly and shiny things”.

What was your favorite beast in the movie? What did you think of the movie/book?

I am going to see it again tonight with my friends and I hope they enjoy it as much as I do! ::crosses fingers::

Unleash the Storm Review

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and is enjoying your Black Friday. I will probably spend my day watching the Gilmore Girls revival on Netflix, and maybe a little bit of online shopping =D What are you planning on doing today?

Unleash the Storm by Annette Marie

Steel and Stone Series Book #5

Published: March 4th 2016 by Annette Marie

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Goodreads Summary:

Piper thought she could handle the Sahar, the most powerful magical weapon in existence. She thought she could protect her loved ones and stop a war. She thought she could make a difference.

She was wrong, and her mistakes were paid for in blood.

Leaving her world—and her failures—behind, she retreats to the Underworld with Ash and the other draconians. They forge deep into long abandoned mountains, the first draconians to fly the valleys and passes in centuries—or so they thought. Until now, Ash’s mysterious heritage has been nothing but a name, but his presence does not go unnoticed. A new danger stalks him, one that may be even greater than what they escaped.

Cut off from the power she’d come to rely on and lost in a world where she doesn’t belong, Piper has never felt so hopeless. But she must find her strength, and find it quickly, before she loses Ash to an ancient power he can’t fight, before her home is devastated by the daemon war, and before her mind, body, and soul are consumed by the Sahar’s insidious magic.

Let me just say that I can’t believe this is the last book in the series!! =( I feel as if I have a deeply invested interest in Piper and Ash’s relationship by this point, and I just wanted them to finally be together with no problems! Was that too much to ask for?! Apparently so because Marie left the ending to the entire series ambiguous on purpose, so you’ll either love it or hate it. I felt like while we were given an ending, there was still something left to be desired.

This book begins with all of the draconians on the run from Samael, and so this lasts for a good portion of the beginning of the book. Thus making it very difficult to get into the story. You could probably skip the first 20% and still be okay with the rest of the story. There was a subplot that took up a good portion of the middle of the book that had me wondering if that was how the whole series was going to end, but the way that Marie tied it in to the overall plot was very nice. As far as the action went, you could feel this build up to the very last battle (well a very sporadic and elongated build up, but it was there). Once the last battle scene was upon us, I couldn’t believe all the situations the author put us through! I won’t say anything else about it in fear of giving something away, but I will say it was a battle of epic proportions!

Even though the plot was a little slow to progress, Marie pulled out all the stops and linked all of the books together in a satisfying (or unsatisfying) finale.  All in all,  I still really love this series. The first couple of books I enjoyed immensely more than books 4 and 5, but that didn’t take away from my love of the series.

If you love paranormal action/romance, then you should definitely check out this series!

Reap the Shadows Review

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Today I am thankful for my husband and friends who let us crash at their place to spend the week with them! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with family, friends, and great food!


Reap the Shadows by Annette Mariereaptheshadows

Steel and Stone Series Book #4

Published: October 16th 2015 by Annette Marie

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Goodreads Summary:

Piper is feeling a bit overwhelmed. With Seiya and Lyre missing, Ash recovering from near fatal injuries, and the Gaians picking fights with daemons all over the city, a girl can’t help but think she might be in over her head. And this time, she’s on her own.

Before she even has a chance to investigate the Gaians’ new stockpile of mysterious, high-tech weaponry, an old enemy ambushes her: Samael’s henchman Raum. He wants Ash’s help and won’t take “get lost” for an answer. She doesn’t know if she can trust Raum, but even more than that, she can’t trust herself with Ash. Sooner or later he’ll catch up to her, and she fears she won’t be able to walk away from him a second time.

Despite her feelings, it will take their combined strength to face a frightening discovery about the Gaians. She and Ash begin to realize that the daemon war is coming to Earth, and they might be the only ones who can stop it — if it’s not already too late.

As much as I love this series, this book was a bit of a let down after the first couple of books. I even enjoyed the short story more than this one!

“That was her problem: not that she was weak, but that she was willing to be weak when someone stronger was around to save her.”

In one sentence that is basically the whole plot of this book. For about 75% of the book Piper was very annoying about being the weak link, and then she wouldn’t even do anything to fix it. This book got a little difficult to read because of it. I wanted the strong, go in kicking and screaming Piper from the previous books. So as she is on this “journey” to find her strength to fight her own battles, she continues to push Ash away in fear that he will get hurt. Um…how many books is this going to happen? Can’t they just be together already so that the plot can advance?

Speaking of the plot, it was kind of lacking in this book. Compared to the other books, this one barely advanced at all and then at the end it was as if the author tried to cram everything into a few pages. Hopefully the last book will be redeem the series and be an ending we all want!!! ::crosses fingers::

Overall, this book was alright. It seemed more as a filler than an actual progression in the series. Although, the last battle and ending had me hooked to find out what happens next!

The League of Beastly Dreadfuls by Holly Grant and illustrated by Josie Portillo.

Published: April 28th 2015 by Random House Books for Young Children

Goodreads Summary:

A creepy Victorian house, secretive aunties, and a great escape combine in this debut that is part Mysterious Benedict Society, part Roald Dahl. Join the League. . . .

Anastasia is a completely average almost-eleven-year-old. That is, UNTIL her parents die in a tragic vacuum-cleaner accident. UNTIL she’s rescued by two long-lost great-aunties. And UNTIL she’s taken to their delightful and, er, “authentic” Victorian home, St. Agony’s Asylum for the Criminally Insane.

But something strange is going on at the asylum. Anastasia soon begins to suspect that her aunties are not who they say they are. So when she meets Ollie and Quentin, two mysterious brothers, the three join together to plot their great escape!

This book has a retail value of $16.99, on Amazon you can purchase it for $14.37.

This definitely has that middle school feel for it, and it looks like it’ll be a quick fun read.

img_0187

Look how fun the back is! Those attack poodles do look very vicious! If you enjoy this book, the second one is already out and the third one will be released next year.

img_0179

Can we just take a moment and admire this scarf? This was exclusively designed for Lit-Cube, and has a value of $14.99. I am so glad that we got a cold front this weekend, my outfits will now be complete with this scarf!!!

img_0188

The snackable this month is some old fashioned candy by Giliam. I found a pack of 80 sticks for only $16.00, making one piece have a value of $0.20. Lit-Cube sent out two different flavors, I received Rum and Butter (Butterbeer), and the other one was Rootbeer. Definitely something you would find in Fred and George’s shop!

img_0183

One of the exciting items in this month box was this exclusive House Handbook Organizer.

img_0184

I like that each week is customizable, that way if I forget to use it it won’t matter!

img_0185

I love the quote on the back of the organizer. Since this was designed and manufactured exclusively for Lit-Cube, I can’t find it anywhere online. The info card says that this has a value of $34.99, and it seems accurate for that price. It is very well made and seems as if it’ll be very sturdy in my book bag.

img_0180

So not going to lie, I was seriously hoping that this would contain my Hogwarts letter. Heck I would have been okay with my acceptance to Ilvermony!

img_0181

Although it wasn’t my acceptance letter, I will accept the planner stickers from Nerdy Grl Designs! I mean look how cute these little stickers are, and they will go perfectly with my new planner! These were designed by the shop owner herself, and they have a value of $3.99.

img_0182

The last HP item in the box are these adorable nail decals by Nail Glams! Thankfully they came with instructions or I would not have been able to apply them =/. She has many different HP sets on her site, so this is obviously a custom order. She is also having a sale right now of buy 2 sheets get 1 free! This particular set has a value of $5.99.

img_0189

Overall this box has an estimated value of $75. This is probably hands down my favorite box from Lit-Cube. I honestly would have been just happy with the book items! I wish I could have been sorted into Gryffindor, but I am happy with my Slytherin scarf and planner!

Did you get a Lit-Cube this month? What house were you sorted into?

Goodreads Monday #15 (11/21/2016)

Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Page Turner,  and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read!


This week I have chosen:

walkonearthastranger

 

Title: Walk on Earth a Stranger (The Gold Seer Trilogy #1)

Author: Rae Carson

Published: September 22nd 2015 by Greenwillow Books

Goodreads Summary:

Gold is in my blood, in my breath, even in the flecks in my eyes.

Lee Westfall has a strong, loving family. She has a home she loves and a loyal steed. She has a best friend—who might want to be something more.

She also has a secret.

Lee can sense gold in the world around her. Veins deep in the earth. Small nuggets in a stream. Even gold dust caught underneath a fingernail. She has kept her family safe and able to buy provisions, even through the harshest winters. But what would someone do to control a girl with that kind of power? A person might murder for it.

When everything Lee holds dear is ripped away, she flees west to California—where gold has just been discovered. Perhaps this will be the one place a magical girl can be herself. If she survives the journey.

The acclaimed Rae Carson begins a sweeping new trilogy set in Gold Rush-era America, about a young woman with a powerful and dangerous gift.

I actually discovered this book on one of the Instagram accounts that I follow. They gave such a good review, that I bought it one on of my Book Outlet purchases. I have been kind of in a reading slump lately so it has just been hanging out on my shelf. Hopefully soon I can dust it off and read it!

What is on your TBR shelf this week?

The Best Damn Book Box August Review

The Best Damn Book Box curated by Nicole and her team came in today, and I am super excited! Nicole and her team are still trying to catch up on boxes, and we just received our August boxes this month. I can’t wait for them to be all caught up! I really want the November Villain’s box!

TBDBB is a monthly subscription box:

img_0170

 

“A Book Subscription Box For Your Bookish Delight! We Deliver Adventures To Your Door!  30% off 3 OR 6 MONTH SUBSCRIPTIONS!!! Just use Code MSASAVE30

 

 

  • Some of the Best Damn Authors around!
  • Exclusive items created for each box
  • Top Selling YA novels each month for your reading delight
  • 5 to 6 bookish items, tea, snacks, jewelry, bookmarks, candles, etc., handcrafted by amazing small shops
  • Newly released or Best Sellers Each Month based around a monthly theme!
  • Each Box Donates $1 to a charity each month!”

There are three different types of subscriptions:

  • Monthly: $39.99

  • Shipping rates are $6.99 US, $10.99 Canada, and $19.99 Internationally

Normally, the boxes ship on or around the 25th of each month in waves.

This “months” theme was “Oz and Everything Wicked”. I have to say though, after opening up the box, I was a little bit disappointed with how sparse it was. I was not impressed what so ever. Giving the box a chance, I quickly dove in to see what goodies was curated for the theme.

img_0171

First up, the info card. The other side of the card is gorgeous. I wish that it was packed in a way that would have prevent it from bending, but hopefully placing it between two books will flatten it back out.

img_0173

The book this month was The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. The redesigned modern cover art was done by Rock Paper Books, and has a retail value of $10.99.

Goodreads Summary:

Follow the yellow brick road!

Dorothy thinks she’s lost forever when a tornado whirls her and her dog, Toto, into a magical world. To get home, she must find the wonderful wizard in the Emerald City of Oz. On the way she meets the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion. But the Wicked Witch of the West has her own plans for the new arrival – will Dorothy ever see Kansas again?

As much as I love the cover, I was a little disappointed that we didn’t receive a new YA book. The previous month was also a new edition of a classic, and I hope that this isn’t going to become a trend. Don’t get me wrong, I love classics, but I already own most of them so getting a new edition is just taking up precious space on my overcrowded bookshelves. =/

img_0169

This mini candle is by Novelly Yours. She is a lot of cute candles on her Etsy shop, so I definitely suggest checking her out! This particular candle is the scent Villanous, on her shop she has the 8 oz for sale for $11.00. I am assuming that this is a sampler, so the retail value for this is probably $2.75. Novelly Yours makes all natural soy wax candles, and this one has scents of stormy nights, pine, winter garden, and fire.

img_0172

This silver plated necklace was made by the Best Damn Craft Shop. They had multiple characters, and I received the rainbow. It is always hard to find them online, so I estimate that this has a value of $8.00.

img_0174

Wicked Witch Finger soaps by Bubble City Soap. You can order these in either sets of 20, 30, or 40. Thus making the retail value for one witch finger to be $1.20. These are very creepy looking by themselves, but it is supposed to have a green apple scent. Too bad it didn’t come before Halloween for me to put in my guest bathroom. After viewing all the items this was the only “wicked” item in the box. Everything else was all sunshine and rainbows all things considered.

img_0175

Last but not least are these super cute magnetic bookmarks by Nerdy Grl Designs. Between subscription boxes and my personal orders I will probably own a little bit of everything from her shop! I get so many compliments from her bookmarks, and most of friends want them too! A full set of Oz Magnetic Bookmarks are $10.00 and there are 6 in the set.  A set of 2 for a custom set have a value of $4.50.

img_0176

Overall, I am not that impressed with this box. My favorite item hands down is magnetic bookmarks and then possibly the candle. This box has an estimated value of $28.00, and considering that the box is $47 a month, I am not happy with it. I understand things happen, but since the box is already late what’s a few extra days to get high quality items? I only have a 6 month subscription, and if the next couple of boxes are not an improvement I don’t think I will continue with this one.

What did you think of this months box?

Septembers Theme is:

mermaidtheme

Octobers Theme is:

Things that Go Bump in the Night (unfortunately, I couldn’t find the promo pic)

Novembers Theme is:

villains2

Decembers Theme is:

nightmarebeforechristmas

This one is more of a celebration of their one year anniversary, so they are redoing their very first box. It is also for new subscribers only, so if someone has stayed with them for an entire year I do not know what kind of box they will get.
