This Week's Reads

White Crystal Dragon
by sandara (DeviantArt)

A Promise Of Fire by Amanda Bouchet
Kingmaker Chronicles #1 (Goodreads)
**I picked up books 1 and 2 from this series. I'm about halfway through A Promise of Fire and am undecided. I like all of the characters except Cat at times. Her inner dialogue seems very childish and does not match her outer self.

Blood Rose Rebellion by Rosalyn Eves
Blood Rose Rebellion #1 (Goodreads)
**I'll admit to being drawn in by this cover more than the story promised. I'm worried that it has too much similar to Gilded Cage but still giving it a try.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there. Have a Great Day today and everyday!

by TsaoShin (DeviantArt)
Fun Facts
  • In the United States alone, around 122 million phone calls are made to moms on Mother’s Day.
  • In the vast majority of the world’s languages, the word for “mother” begins with the letter M.
  • Carnations are very popular flowers for Mother’s Day and are thought to be made from the tears of Jesus’ mother (Mary) when she wept at his feet the day He was crucified.
  • Pink and red carnations are given to mother’s that are still alive, while white ones are for those that have passed away

This Week's Reads

Wake a Sleeping Tiger by Lora Leigh
Breeds #31 (Goodreads)
**I have not read this series in order but I was in the mood for a PNR and the library had this on their new shelf. I really should read the ones I've missed.

Blood of The Earth by Faith Hunter
Soulwood #1 (Goodreads)
**I wasn't able to get the next book in the Jane series so decided to start this one that takes place in the same world as Jane Yellowrock.
Only concern is that I do not like Rick but hoping away for Jane I'll like the character more.

Blood in Her Veins by Faith Hunter
Short Stories from the World of Jane Yellowrock (Goodreads)
**Grabbed this to tide me over until I can get Black Arts (#7) of this series.
