May 2020 Monthly Wrap-Up

May was filled with a bit of excitement for me, but unfortunately not the pleasant kind. But, we did have blessings mixed in amongst the chaos. I’m hoping June brings only the pleasant sort of surprises.
Here’s the books I picked out for my May TBR. I know I mentioned at the beginning of the month that this was a very loose TBR. I really didn’t expect to stick to it, but I love putting together lists anyways. Let’s see how many I actually read ~

#IMWAYR ~ 5/25/20

Alison here ~

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date. Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels or anything in those genres – join them.

Master of Revenge ~ Review


Title: Master of Revenge
Series: Gods of Vegas #3
Author: Sienna Snow
Release Date: July 31, 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance/Erotica
Blurb: We are rivals. Sworn enemies. And he is the only man to ignite a fire in my soul.

I walk a fine line between control and chaos, defined by my past and driven by my future. Nothing can stop me from protecting those I love.

Zack Lykaios is cunning and dangerous. He wants to destroy everything I’ve built on his ruthless march to the top.

All that I am, or ever will be, says I should avoid him.

Still, I’ve been tempted. One card game. One night of all-consuming passion. One craving I can’t deny. One need I can never quench.

Wanting him can only lead to disaster. Loving him is guaranteed to destroy my world.

April 2020 Monthly Wrap-Up

As I already mentioned, I didn’t do so great with my April TBR. But, that’s just fine with me! I still made my way through quite a stack of books!

April 2020 TBR

At the beginning of March I was looking forward to vacation and some rare family time – especially with my oldest in college. Little did I know that a couple weeks later we’d start our journey of having more family time than I ever imagined possible again. So, I’ve been doing my best to focus on appreciating that.

But, I still love my reading, too, and let’s face it, it’s a great escape – especially if you can find the right books! I’m really looking forward to completing my O.W.L.s in April, but I’m looking forward to a lot of other books, too. Here’s what I have planned ~ all very subject to change depending on my moods. LOL! But, I’m a list maker….
