Monday Reviews - The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson.

As always, the synopsis!

A princess must find her place in a reborn world.

She flees on her wedding day. She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor's secret collection. She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father. She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.

The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can't abide. Like having to marry someone she's never met to secure a political alliance.

Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—sec…

Monday Reviews - When Reason Breaks by Cindy L. Rodriguez

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to share with you a very special review for a book that I got the opportunity to read as an e-ARC from NetGalley! Thanks so much for allowing me to read When Reason Breaks by Cindy L. Rodriquez.

As always,  I will start with the synopsis of the book and then move into my thoughts,

A Goth girl with an attitude problem, Elizabeth Davis must learn to control her anger before it destroys her. Emily Delgado appears to be a smart, sweet girl, with a normal life, but as depression clutches at her, she struggles to feel normal. Both girls are in Ms. Diaz’s English class, where they connect to the words of Emily Dickinson. Both are hovering on the edge of an emotional precipice. One of them will attempt suicide. And with Dickinson’s poetry as their guide, both girls must conquer their personal demons to ever be happy.

In an emotionally taut novel with a richly diverse cast of characters, readers will relish in the poetry of Emily Dickinson and be completely swept …

TBR Tuesday AND Updated TBR Jar!

Hello everyone!

I am back with another long awaited TBR Tuesday! This is where I share the book I am currently reading, and the book I am going to pick up next!

I am not reading anything right now, but I will be continuing with the Reboot duology by Amy Tintera, and picking up the second and final book, Rebel.

I read Reboot a few days ago and I really enjoyed the pacing and the premise. It was very unique and refreshing, especially for a romantic-dystopian, a genre that is over-saturated as it is!

Once I finish Rebel I will be picking a book from my TBR jar! Being that this is the new year, I have slightly revamped my TBR jar. Instead of writing down all the books I need to read off my shelves, I have decided to use a guideline of sorts. This idea is sort of a mash-up of Katytastic's TBR challenge and the Popsugar reading challenge!

I combined the two lists, adding and removing some of my own ideas. Feel free to use these topics or if you are extra creative, come up with your own!

Monday Reviews - A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

Hello everyone!

I am back with another Monday Reviews! This week, I am reviewing a book I read a few days ago, A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray. 

Here is the synopsis:

Every Day meets Cloud Atlas in this heart-racing, space- and time-bending, epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray.

Marguerite Caine’s physicist parents are known for their radical scientific achievements. Their most astonishing invention: the Firebird, which allows users to jump into parallel universes, some vastly altered from our own. But when Marguerite’s father is murdered, the killer—her parent’s handsome and enigmatic assistant Paul—escapes into another dimension before the law can touch him.

Marguerite can’t let the man who destroyed her family go free, and she races after Paul through different universes, where their lives entangle in increasingly familiar ways. With each encounter she begins to question Paul’s guilt—and her own heart. Soon she discovers the truth behind her fa…
