Synopsis: Goodreads

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

Long before she was the terror of Wonderland, she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love. Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

Gosh, it’s 2017!

Hey everyone!

How have you all been? Have a good Christmas? New Year?

Moving on… (scroll down to the bottom for a TL;DR)

As you all know, when I go to work I tend to stop writing reviews, so when I run out of reviews I’ve written… I run out. But I don’t stop reading! (And as a side note, I update Goodreads while at work so!) This means that when I finally have time to sit down and write reviews again, I create another back log! Sadly I ran out of reviews earlier than I expected at the end of 2016, but things were hectic and I chose not to stress about the blog while I was stressing about my work.

But here I am! With a whole new set of reviews for you! You’ll notice that a lot of the time I’ve been binge reading a series that I started to enjoy. And I am not going to hide it (as I tried to with The Selection). If I’ve read the whole series one after another, then why not share the reviews in that order!

So, I’m going to! As of now, February 2017 (though this’ll be posted first week of March). I’ve attempted to read two books and DNF’d them. I’m continuing with my decision to not mention those on here, purely because I would rather focus on books I have read all the way through. And for me, DNF doesn’t mean I’ll never go back and read them, so I’d rather leave it open to a time more suited to me reading those books.

Aside of those books, I’ve read 6 books this year (as of writing this) and have 5 books from the end of 2016 to share with you as well! So wish me luck as I try to get these reviews out to you on time each week! But rest assured, they’re on their way. And I will not stop reading while getting these reviews out to you, so that list of books is growing! I promise!

You can keep up with my reading over on Goodreads if you want more up to date information on what I’m reading…

So I’ll see you next week with a review of Delirium by Lauren Oliver!


I ran out of pre-written reviews while working at the end of 2016, so I have a back log of reviews to write and I’ve been reading! So there are more reviews coming!
You can check out my Goodreads for more information on the books I’m reading now!

Synopsis: Goodreads

When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined.
