Back so soon? I think so! I went ahead and started the second book of the Legends of Muirwood because I was really curious where the story would lead. Plus, I needed more of Lia and Colvin in my life (and oh my did I get more of them)
And SPOILERS from previous book
Rising from her humble beginnings as a lost orphan, Lia is summoned to be Muirwood Abbey’s protector and special guardian for Ellowyn Demont, the lost heir of the fallen kingdom of Pry-Ree. After the death of the ruthless king at the battle of Winterrowd, the great Aldermaston and Abbey leader calls on Lia to use her mystical talents to save Muirwood from two new threats—a vengeful queen accusing the Abbey of her husband’s death and a deadly plague threatening to destroy the land.
Amidst the turmoil, a battle ensues, and soon Lia learns the world’s magic has begun to falter. As a blanket of dread envelops the Abbey, hopes are tested, and Lia will be forced to come to terms with a secret that will change her life forever.
Hey guys! Today is Day 2 of my Book Reviewing Spree (which I mentioned on Twitter the other day). And lucky for me, the books I’ve been reading somehow relate to the whole Love and Romance thing I started in February.
The book I read this time around was The Return of Rosita by Concetta Coppolino. It was 404 pages long and falls into the genre of Romance
The Return of Rosita is about a girl named Rosita who returns to her family’s hacienda (ranch) fifteen years after her father’s death to reclaim what is rightfully hers! Sounds exciting no? Because that’s why I requested this title. I pretty much grew up with stories like this but in Novela (Spanish soap opera) format, so to read one as a book seemed pretty exciting to me.

A Courtroom of Ashes by C.S. Wilde. Published on April 5, 2016. Buy on Amazon (e-book, paperback)
I received a free copy via the author in exchange for an honest review.
Love. Epic battles. And a lawyer with shady morals.
Santana Jones never thought she’d fall in love with a ghost, but that was before she met John Braver, the incredibly charming and incredibly dead politician on the other side of her brand new mirror. Who knew the damned thing was a window to Purgatory?
But John isn’t alone on the other side. Vicious spirits roam free in the land of the dead.
When an evil ghost drags Santana’s soul through the mirror and into Purgatory, she’ll need all the help she can get to return to her body.With John by her side, nothing can go wrong. But Purgatory is a dangerous place for a lawyer with a pitch-black past.
Santana has always wondered if she’d go to Hell for defending rapists and murderers. Now she’ll know.
Even though it’s been three days since I finished this, part of me is still conflicted. Is it meh, do I like it, or is it good?Continue reading →

Have you ever read a book that had a perfect ending? So perfect that it just annoyed you to no end? Well, for me Uprooted is the first book of 2016 to make me feel this way!
Uprooted is about Agnieszka from Dvernik and how she comes to embrace her witchling powers in order to save and protect her family, her village, and the world from the Wood.
But aside from the fun and interesting plot that we see in Uprooted I was also fascinated by the budding romance of the Dragon and Agnieszka. Since I immediately drew a connection between Beauty and the Beast with Uprooted, a part of me figured our two protagonists would end up together.
Which (in a way) they did. So then, let me rant about their ending, and just as a note I didn’t hate it because it was bad. I hate it because it’s good and it’s over and I’ll never get to see more of these great characters! It’s so tragic… Continue reading →
As many of you have noticed, the year is rapidly approaching its end and being the procrastinator that I am, I thought I’d squeeze in one more book review!
This time I picked a book that had a Christmas theme (since it’s the holidays), was short (because I only had so long to read it), and that it was an M/M story (because I’m into BL and thought it’d be fun to read a legit gay romance story).
I actually stumbled upon this book while browsing my ‘to-read’ shelf on Goodreads, and seeing the cover I thought, this looks nice, let me try it! It’s also for this reason that I decided to try out Kindle Unlimited 🙂
This story falls under novella, Christmas, contemporary, erotica, and M M Romance over on Goodreads. So it suffices to say that this story is NSFW Continue reading →
