Waiting on Wednesday: Ninth City Burning

Waiting on wednesdayWaiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.


Ninth City Burning by J. Patrick Black:

We never saw them coming.

Entire cities disappeared in the blink of an eye, leaving nothing but dust and rubble. When an alien race came to make Earth theirs, they brought with them a weapon we had no way to fight, a universe-altering force known as thelemity. It seemed nothing could stop it—until we discovered we could wield the power too.

Five hundred years later, the Earth is locked in a grinding war of attrition. The talented few capable of bending thelemity to their will are trained in elite military academies, destined for the front lines. Those who refused to support the war have been exiled to the wilds of a ruined Earth.

But the enemy’s tactics are changing, and Earth’s defenders are about to discover this centuries-old war has only just begun. As a terrible new onslaught looms, heroes will rise from unlikely quarters, and fight back.

Top Ten Fantasy Settings

Top Ten Tuesday

(Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I’m kind of cheating on this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic. I know it’s supposed to be settings outside of the US as in real settings, which is such a great topic because that is part of why I started the whole Around The World challenge, and I even had this idea of listing my favorite books set in London (because LONDON, duh) but for someone whose favorite genre is science fiction and fantasy, it’s kind of hard to come up with that many books. I could have made a list of books set in space (and I’m definitely keeping that in mind for another time) but fantasy settings it is for now. So basically I’m using this opportunity to recommend you all my favorite high/epic fantasy.

Waiting on Wednesday: Behind the Throne

Waiting on wednesdayWaiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.


Behind the Throne by K.B. Wagers:

Meet Hail: Captain. Gunrunner. Fugitive. Quick, sarcastic, and lethal, Hailimi Bristol doesn’t suffer fools gladly. She has made a name for herself in the galaxy for everything except what she was born to do: rule the Indranan Empire.

That is, until two Trackers drag her back to her home planet to take her rightful place as the only remaining heir. But trading her ship for a palace has more dangers than Hail could have anticipated. Caught in a web of plots and assassination attempts, Hail can’t do the one thing she did twenty years ago: run away. She’ll have to figure out who murdered her sisters if she wants to survive.

6 years and still counting

Six years of blogging

It’s been quite a while since I last blogged, a 2 1/2 months long while to be precise and one might have been wondering “is she even still blogging?” and YES I AM. I’m just…. waiting to feel like writing blog posts again…still. I’m trying though, slowly.

This long break wasn’t planned at all, it just happened. I even missed my 6 year anniversary which is kind of sad because I even had an idea for a big-ish giveaway but I guess I’ll just keep that in my mind for another time. SIX YEARS THOUGH. I’m always joking how I definitely want to make it to at least 10 but now that I’m in the second half, it doesn’t even seem that unlikely anymore. I definitely don’t intend to quit anytime soon, even if it doesn’t seem like that right now.

I’m actually somewhat proud of myself for still blogging after over 6 years, especially considering that quite a few of the blogs that I read when I started are gone by now. Maybe not the best timing to talk about how to keep motivated to blog but this is why and how I kept going over all these years.

Best of April 2016

April Recap

April was all about The Raven Cycle because The Raven King came finally out. I think it hasn’t really hit me yet that it is actually over. I keep re-reading the series, I keep thinking about the series, I keep talking about the series and it just doesn’t feel like the end just yet because I’m still right in the middle of it, kind of. At the same time I’m super emotional though BECAUSE it is the end. Basically, my feels are all over the place and I don’t know what to do with myself these days.
