Quote of the Day

Image
He leans down, and I've got about a three second warning, long enough to inhale sharply, before he kisses me. His lips are the softest things about him, warm and gentle, like a slice of heaven wrapped in hell, so worth battling the flames to feel his fire.

Book Review: Bitter Night (Horngate Witches #1)

Image
Bitter Night (Horngate Witches #1) was picked as Book of the Month in our Goodreads group. I had never heard of the author, but was looking forward to reading an urban fantasy book. While I've been reading a lot of fantasy books this year. I've been very light on reading urban fantasy. Diana Pharaoh Francis has written an intriguing world of witches, Shadowblades and a sprinking of fairies, angels and guardians.  A kick-ass heroine, who some may call a tad reckless at times, has her heart in the right place and needs to navigate a world that she never wanted to be a part of.

Quote of the Day

Avoiding any show of celebration, he refused to shame defeated soldiers and vetoed any ceremony in which they marched out of Fort Donelson and stacked their arms. "Why should we go through with vain forms and mortify and injure the spirit of brave men, who, after all, are our own countrymen," he asked. In treating the sick and wounded, he made no distinction between federal and Confederate troops and prevented the indignity of having souvenir hunters scavenge trophies from the battlefield.

Fangirl Friday - Five Star Reads Part Two

Image
More of my five star reads from 2017. It's been an amazing year book quality wise.  I'm putting the explosion of great reading firmly on the doorstep of two of my groups on Goodreads, Fantasy Buddy Reads and 2-3-4 Challenge. They've both really broadened my horizons this year on the books I've selected to read. Thank you to both groups. The books below have all be read as buddy reads in both groups.

Here's a look at my five star reads since June. Check after the jump.


Quote of the Day

“Aren’t you afraid of dying?” he asked Lila now. She looked at him as if it were a strange question. And then she shook her head. “Death comes for everyone,” she said simply. “I’m not afraid of dying. But I am afraid of dying here.” She swept her hand over the room, the tavern, the city. “I’d rather die on an adventure than live standing still.” 
A Darker Shade of Magic, V. E Schwab
