There is a world that runs parallel to our own, a world in which the souls of the damned are caged, where they are looked over by the Furies, and where they spend eternity in torment, mirroring the devastation and mayhem they created when alive.
Someone has opened the cage.
The worst of terrors has crossed the barrier that separates our world from theirs, and the Furies send a great, albeit untested warrior—their only son, Alek—to try to bring those souls back. He is young and handsome, headstrong and impulsive, and he won't be able to do it alone.
Eva has grown up, beautiful and beloved, but surrounded by secrets. First, she will be hu…

My TBR Shame Tag

It's been awhile since I've done a tag. While browsing BookTube I happened upon Sarah Churchill's My TBR Shame Tag. It's all the books on your self that you haven't read, so hence the shame. I thought it was perfect since I have tons of books I haven't read!


Alright, let's bring on the shame! Here are all of my books I haven't read that are on my shelf! (Not including my Kindle books, oh boy!)

Happy Release Day! Z by Larissa Ione Excerpt

Title: Z
Author:  Release Date:  Publisher:  Formats: Paperback, Audiobook (CD) & ebook Amazon|Paperback


Zhubaal, fallen angel assistant to the Grim Reaper, has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her, not when he knows she’s been given a second chance at life in a new body. But as time passes, he’s losing hope, and he wonders how much longer he can hold to the oath he swore to her so long ago… As an emim, the wingless offspring of two fallen angels, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper — by any means necessary — she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z, who seems determined to thwart her at every turn. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past…but can any vow stand the test of time?

The babies were born as the clock struck twelve. A bat fell from the air mid-flight. A silver salmon floated dead to the surface of the river. Snails withered in their shells, moths turned to dust on the night breeze and an owl ate its young. The spell had been cast.

Poppy Hooper has managed to deceive her father into believing that there is nothing mysterious or unnatural about her. He ignores the cats that find her wherever she goes, the spiders that weave beautiful lacy patterns for her, even her eyes - one blue, one green with an extra black dot orbiting the pupil.

2016 Finishing the Series Reading Challenge

To say the least I have a bit of a out of control TBR! I guess that's the life of a reader. One of my goals for awhile has been to complete some series that I've started.

My Goal: Level 2 Without further ado, here are the book series's I would like to finish in 2016!
1. Bound Series by Stormy Smith- I read the first two books in this highly addictive, magical series. I can't wait to read the third installment!

2. The Dark Elements Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout- I'm not sure why I didn't finish this series. I loved the first book, White Hot Kiss. I was so engrossed and loved the original concept of gargoyles!

3. Never Never series by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher- I finished & loved the first part in this three part series.

4. Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward- I ended this series with Lover Unleashed so I'll pick it back up with Lover Reborn which is book #10.

I know my last AATC post was a Nora Roberts book, but I just love her writing so I had to post about her upcoming book The Obsession!

I really like the UK cover in terms of appeal, but the U.S. Cover gives off a more "haunting" vibe for me. What's your favorite cover?
