Hey there people of the page. I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I’m still backlogged on books, working hard to make sure I stay on top of them and that my book reviews don’t suffer either. Although they tend to when I do them last minute and in a rush. But I’m working on remembering to take a breath and just take everyday ass a new day. I feel like I’ve been rushing through my life lately, just with books and my reviews. So, even though I’m backlogged I’m just going to take a small step back and breathe.
Hey there people of the page. So, it turns out that I have once again become backlogged on books. I have until Sept 2 to read 4 books. I’ve knocked one out of the park (these are ARCs with expiration dates btw) and I’m in the middle of two at the moment. I’m saving the longest for last while I go through these two, using every spare moment, my sleepless nights (I’m an insomniac) to read, read, read. I guess it’s a good thing I have finished prelim edits on my novel. I printed out a copy for myself so that I can go over formatting and editing issues that will no doubt need to be addressed. So, until that arrives in the mail, I plan on using all this free time to catch up on this reading. I’ve also gotten control over my anemia again. I’m not great at taking care of myself and I feel fine most of the time so I don’t take my iron pills but when I crash, boy do I crash. And you know what one of the symptoms of anemia is? Loss of interest. So I was reading slower than usual, spending half my time just being a lazy bum. But I’ve taken my iron pills every day for the past 6 days, getting my iron up as best as possible. And the change is noticeable.
So here you go folks, my upcoming reading list for this week. Since my energy is up, I have no doubt that I will catch up on my reading. At least, that’s the hope. Happy reading! Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #101”
Amy Gumm was swept up in a tornado just like Dorothy Gale. A higher power swept her up to destroy Dorothy and her close friends who let the power and magic of Oz corrupt them. No longer is Oz the vibrant place, now it’s a dark place full of monsters and danger. And Amy too is in danger of becoming one of those monsters. An assassin who has failed, Amy must find the light buried deep inside her to keep herself and her friends safe from Dorothy’s wrath and her own.
Hey there readers! Guess who is finally a graduate of Emerson College! This girl! Boy was it cold, and wet, lots of rain in Boston this past weekend. My mom and grandmother took so many pictures of me and Dennis Lehane was my commencement speaker, which was super cool btw. Anyway, it was tons of fun I just wished my uncle, aunt and fiancé had been there with me, but I’ll see them soon enough. On the bright side on the 21-hour drive I took back home with my mom (because we were moving furniture back to FL from BOS) I got a lot of reading done. So check out this week’s reading list. Happy reading! Continue reading “Weekly Reading List #87”

Here you have it readers. Many books were listed but only one could be the winner and the winner this month, by a landslide, is none other than Danielle Paige’s fourth novel in her Dorothy Must Die series, The End of Oz. Check out what it’s all about right here and stay tuned for a review right here on Cyn’s Workshop. You can already check out reviews of Dorothy Must Die and The Wicked Will Rise right here.
It’s said that the Wizard left Oz in a hot air balloon. What the tales left out what that a storm knocked him off his course and into the poppy fields to sleep. Until he was woken with no memory of who he was. But when ignorance is bliss it also teaches the Wizard that being good is all about perception, and acting has always been his specialty. With the biggest danger to Oz being Dorothy Gale, the Wizard might be the key—or the final piece in Oz’s destruction.
Dorothy has placed her claim on Oz, becoming the Wicked Witch. But don’t tell her that. Power-hungry and vicious, Dorothy, punishes everyone she pleases. Everyone except Glinda who seems to be the real puppet master here. Jellia is about to discover that the real Wicked Witch has always been there, hidden behind pink smiles and false kindness. A Witch who will sacrifice everything for power.
Dorothy Gale, while happy to be back with her family, is unhappy with her dreary life back in Kansas where she was been reduced to just another ordinary prairie girl. Dorothy wants nothing more than to be returned to the vibrant landscapes of Oz, to be a hero of the people, but more importantly, a celebrity. And when a pair of red shoes appear under her bed with a note from an old friend, Dorothy knows just how to get back to Oz, and this time she’ll stay there, no matter the cost.
