Top Ten T.V. Shows of 2017

2017 has been a year of many things and for me it was the year of TV. The silver screen failed to disappoint me and I watched a lot of Netflix (more than is healthy) over the past 12 months. Some of the shows debuted in 2017 some of them were new seasons of past favorites and others classics that I finally got around to. So here are my favorite shows I watched in 2017.Read More »

For hundreds of years, Scotland has battled the English for their freedom. Now, they face a new enemy.

As civil war breaks out among the Highland clans, James recruits a secret group of warriors for protection. He calls them the Protectors of the Crown.

Keira Sinclair has lived a life of peace and simplicity until now. With her clan on the verge of losing everything, she is forced to wed a Laird from a neighboring clan to ensure that hers survives. During her travels to her new home, her carriage is attacked and Keira is taken hostage by a ruthless man.

My Month In Books: May Wrap-Up

As this month comes to an end so does the school year, although technically I have my last final on June 1st, I now consider the school year to be over. I read a lot more books than I originally anticipated this month. It started off a bit hectic what with AP exams and then after 1 weeks reprieve began finals, somehow in the midst of all the last-minute projects and cramming I managed to read 13 books. I think that a record high for me this month in terms of books read per month. I also managed to reach my original Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year so I’ve decided to aim higher and raised it to 150 books and hopefully, this upcoming summer can allow me to make a dent on that. I’ve rambled on for long enough so here are the books I read this month.Read More »

My Month in Books: April Wrap-Up

I read a lot more this month than I was expecting to. I had a bit of a busy month as I had to review for my AP Testing that happening in the beginning of May. I won’t be very active in the next couple of weeks though I do have some post scheduled so I’m not totally MIA. April was a great reading month. I read nine even though I only thought I would be able to read two. I have become more than a little bit obsessed with historical romances over the past month. There a lot of fun to read and go by so quickly I was able to squeeze in quite a few. So here is my month in books.  Read More »

My Month in Books: March Wrap-Up

March was an average reading month, I read a total of 8 books, which isn’t bad but definitely not as much as I was hoping for. I read quite a range of genres this month, starting from nonfiction to high fantasy to historical romance. I didn’t rate any of my books as less than three stars so I was pretty happy with the quality of the books I read. So without further ado here is my month of March, told in books.

Publisher: Swoon Reads

Page Count: 320 pages

Overall Thoughts:

I had a lot of fun reading this book, anything that takes place in Victorian England with fantastical elements is right up my ally. It did take me a little bit to get into this book because I couldn’t remember much of what had happened in the first book, but over the course of the first hundred pages most of the main events came back to me and I was able to enjoy it  a lot more.

Synopsis:

England, 1883. Still recovering from a devastating loss, Evelyn is determined to use her powers to save other gifted people from those who would harm them. But when her rescue of a young telekinetic girl goes terribly wrong, Evelyn finds herself indebted to a secret society devoted to recruiting and protecting people like Evelyn and her friends.

As she follows the Society’s orders, healing the sick and embarking on perilous recruitment missions, Evelyn sees her problems disappear. Her reputation is repaired, her friends are provided for, and her parents are newly wealthy. She reunites with the dashing Mr. Kent and recovers the reclusive Mr. Braddock (who has much less to brood over now that the Society can help him to control his dangerous power). But Evelyn can’t help fearing the Society is more sinister than it appears…
