Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week our topic is: Top Ten Favorite Heroines From Books Listed in no particular order. Alanna… enough said. Kel. While Kristen is Alanna all the way, I still have a sweet spot for Kel. Yelena. Opal. Here is another one where Kristen and I disagree. Sure, Opal isn’t as bad ass as Yelena, but there is something about her that I am just drawn to. Plus, glass magic is kinda cool. Katsa. Cinder. Deuce. Elisa. Gaia. Mac.

The Sin Eater’s Daughter, hands down, is probably my number one had to read for 2015 thus far. The cover, the summary, all of it just beckoned to me. Begging me to read it.

I stalked my “Secret Sister” slightly and felt bad I couldn’t gift her any of my finds since she was there as well! I had an awesome Friday. Lit up the exhibits right after work and headed to […]
It has been a while since I have found a book that makes me want to ignore everything that is going on around me. Oh, I have work to do? Oh, I need to sleep? Nah. I want to read this instead.
