Hay House Writer’s Workshop

Sorry I’ve been gone for so long! I traveled to Las Vegas for a Writer’s Workshop and I was busier than I anticipated. I’m going to give you a day by day so it’s not too overwhelming. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures. I was too busy taking in the sights!


We traveled down to Vegas from Northern Utah. It was a great day for the drive. We made it to St. George where we stopped at Barnes and Noble. We were in the car for over 4 hours so it was nice to take a break. I held myself to two books and I ended up with a couple manga. I’ve read through them both over the weekend and heartily enjoyed them. I won’t do a full review but I might do a summary of them both.  We made it to Las Vegas fairly early. We stayed at Excalibur which was fun. Unfortunately, the pools hours were from 10-5. So, we didn’t get to swim at all. That night we did a little shopping and had a yummy dinner.

Doctor Who Book Tag!

I’m a huge modern whovian. I’ve watched a bit of the classic and I will finish it eventually. I just struggle with finding a consistent place to watch it. Plus, it’s always competing with other shows and never seems to win… Anyway, I found this fun Doctor Who book tag and figured it was a good time to share it, since the new season starts in two weeks!! *Fangirl Squeal!* I found this on Becoming Bookish so if you want to use it, please give credit to them. I will leave a blank list of the prompts at the bottom of this post for anyone who wants to do it too!

Why The Assassin’s Blade is Essential for any Throne of Glass Fan

I started The Throne of Glass series not too long ago and heartily enjoyed the first two books. But then one of my friends informed me that I needed to read The Assassin’s Blade before I went any farther. I was thinking, well if it’s like The Selection series, it shouldn’t matter when I read it, but she insisted. So, I bought it and started reading it. And now I agree. If I could go back, I would read it after the first one. It makes me want to go reread the first one because I feel like a couple things would make more sense now. If you want to read more about why I love The Throne of Glass, you can find my review here.

The Valiant- A Historical YA for your Inner Badass

I recently went to a book signing, the penguin teen on tour. We went 100% for Alwyn Hamilton because I love her book Rebel of the Sands! (I just got the second one, so you’ll be seeing a review soon.) Lesley Livingston, Renée Ahdieh, and Natalie C. Anderson were also there. I had read Renée’s book, The Wrath and the Dawn, and I didn’t really like it… I had never even heard of Lesley Livingston or Natalie C. Anderson. But oh my! After hearing what The Valiant was about, I knew I had to read it! I bought a copy of it that night for a friend, who I knew would love it. It only took me a couple days to get through. That tour also made me want to read Natalie’s book, City of Saints and Thieves, so that’s on my to read list as well. But what did I think of The Valiant

The Valiant is a thrilling historical YA with romance and excitement! Why you should read it...


Jeff Zentner Book Signing!

A few months ago, my friend and I were looking up author events at a (somewhat) local bookstore. She was so excited when she found out Jeff Zentner was coming and I had no idea who he was. (I’m so ashamed!) She told me about The Serpent King and HIGHLY recommended it. I looked it up but my library didn’t have it. So, I put it off, until last week I had a moment of panic when she reminded me about the event. The library still didn’t have it, so I just gave in and ordered it. But of course, I didn’t start reading it until Sunday afternoon and the event was Monday night. Good job, me… But it was amazing! I’ll have a review up later this week, but definitely a 5 out of 5! So off we went to Jeff Zentner’s book signing!


Why you should read The Serpent King right now!

A couple weeks ago, a friend and I were talking about book signings coming up in our area. She wanted to attend Jeff Zentner’s event. I’m embarrassed to say I had no idea who he was. Since she HIGHLY recommended his book, I ordered it and agreed to go. The Serpent King arrived, but I was reading Everything, Everything. So I finished that one, and finally Sunday morning I started it, knowing it had to be read by tonight (Monday). And well, I had to pause to eat dinner at the in-laws, but when I got home, I ate through it.  Why did I wait so long to read this?? How did I not know it existed until now??? I’m so ashamed… So! Why YOU should read it! (Note, there is a major spoiler that I’m going to try to address without giving anything away, I hope.)

<a target=The Serpent King is one of the best books I’ve read in years! And why you should read it too!”


Why Everything, Everything wasn’t Everything, but it was still pretty dang good.

I wasn’t on the hype train when Everything, Everything first came out. I only recently discovered Nicola Yoon when I was at Wal-Mart and saw The Sun Is Also a Star on the YA shelf. So, I read the summary, bought it, and LOVED it! Of course, when I saw the movie trailer for Everything, Everything, I looked it up. When I saw that it was by Nicola Yoon I put it on hold at my library. Seeing as how it’s a crazy popular book, I’ve been on hold for months. So my sweet hubby picked it up for me for our anniversary! Now, Everything Everything is very controversial due to the twist ending. This review contains spoilers!! Please be aware!! It’s one of those books you can’t review in depth without spoilering so if you want a review without spoilers, check out my goodreads.

Everything Everything may not be Everything, but it's still pretty good! Find out more about why this book is so popular and why the controversy doesn't bother me.
