Hey, there, avid readers! I hope you are all having a wonderful day and a wonderful week. I’m still working hard on catching up with my book reviews. Trying to ensure the quality is where I want it to be so that you guys read me at my best. I’m always working hard on catching up on my TBR pile. If you follow me on social media, you guys know I’m not just reading one or two books a week; I’m reading 4! I’m crazy, I know. But I love to read. Plus, it is not utter chaos. I have one book I only read on Saturday, 1 I read on Sunday, 1 book I read for 30 min per day, and one for Monday through Friday. Oh, and my audiobook for Sundays. So I guess that makes 5? Oh boy. Maybe I’m just a little crazy.
Anywho, check out my latest reading list, a list of reviews to come. And, as always, happy reading!
Alice Daniels has a problem. Her reflection keeps misbehaving when she looks in the mirror–and the longer she ignores it, the harder it tries to get her attention. On her eighteenth birthday, she learns why: she is a huntress, someone gifted with the power to enter mirrors and the magical world that exists beyond.
But with this power comes immense responsibility, for in the Mirror Realm lurks an evil that has infected the human race for centuries: demons. It is up to her and her three huntress sisters–with the help of one handsome and overbearing protector–to hunt and banish this evil one demon at a time, thereby keeping the chaos in check.
But when an ancient god pays Alice a visit that turns deadly, it is clear the Mirror Realm is more than it seems, and she soon finds herself in a race against time to save the life–and soul–of the one man the gods are determined to never let her have.
The Last Huntress is a story of redemption and sacrifice, the bonds of true sisterhood, and the impossible, sometimes frightening, things we’ll do for love.
A world divided. A queendom without an heir. An ancient enemy awakens.
The House of Berethnet has ruled Inys for a thousand years. Still unwed, Queen Sabran the Ninth must conceive a daughter to protect her realm from destruction – but assassins are getting closer to her door.
Ead Duryan is an outsider at court. Though she has risen to the position of lady-in-waiting, she is loyal to a hidden society of mages. Ead keeps a watchful eye on Sabran, secretly protecting her with forbidden magic.
Across the dark sea, Tané has trained to be a dragonrider since she was a child, but is forced to make a choice that could see her life unravel.
Meanwhile, the divided East and West refuse to parley, and forces of chaos are rising from their sleep.

Avalon, city of kings. Sky towers and airships dominate its skyline, dinosaurs roam freely throughout its parklands, and bounty hunters lurk in its shadows.
Guinevere has always lived on the outskirts of Avalon, working as an archivist in the central library. While corruption runs rampant throughout the city, her life is fairly mundane and predictable. That is, until she discovers the map to Excalibur and uncovers a plot to usurp the throne.
Finding herself on the run from these would-be king-slayers, Guinevere sets out to find the mythical sword. But with no one to trust and nowhere to hide, she must form an uneasy alliance with a pair of notorious bounty hunters.
“My future, and the future of Avalon are forward.”
Rise of Knight and Sword is the first installment of the One Sword Saga. It reimagines Arthurian legend in a steampunk fantasy world at the height of the 1920s. Follow Guinevere and crew as they face off against smugglers, wild dinosaurs, hidden motives, and mistrust.
