Happy Release Day, RENEGADE RED!

IMG_6304

RENEGADE RED is finally here, you guys! I am so stoked that it’s finally out in the world, because this series is so amazing. AND this book comes in three different covers, so you can have fun collecting them all! I currently have the hardcover and paperback in the Warrior cover (pictured above) and I can’t wait to track down the others! Here’s more about the Light Trilogy and my review of Renegade Red down below. 😀

Introducing RENEGADE RED, Sequel to Award-Winning SHATTERED BLUE

description

ONLY A RENEGADE WILL SURVIVE

Reckless, desperate, and distraught, Noa Sullivan leaps into a collapsing Portal in the explosive finale of Shattered Blue— the jaw-dropping, award-winning first installment in The Light Trilogy— in wild hope of rescuing her little sister Sasha. Now Noa and the Fae brothers who love her—Callum and Judah Forsythe—must find a way to survive not only across worlds but between them, in places so treacherous and deceptive their own minds are twisted against them. As the three fight to survive their passage, they battle not only enemies but themselves, and their darkest, most difficult secrets.

Surviving, however, is only the beginning: Noa needs to find Sasha. That means becoming a warrior herself, one just as fierce as the magical brothers battling for her love. Across broken cities, underground labyrinths, rushing floods and endless skies; in the face of legions of armies, horrifying tyrants, and the most deceitful of friends, can Mortal Noa rescue her sister—and understand her own heart—in time to escape the most deadly of magic realms?

CAN LOVE SPAN WORLDS?

For Noa and Callum, being together is dangerous, even deadly. From the start, sixteen-year-old Noa senses that the mysterious transfer student to her Monterey boarding school is different. Callum unnerves and intrigues her, and even as she struggles through family tragedy, she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Soon they are bound by his deepest secret: Callum is Fae, banished from another world after a loss hauntingly similar to her own.

But in Noa’s world, Callum needs a special human energy, Light, to survive; his body steals it through touch—or a kiss. And Callum’s not the only Fae on the hunt. When Callum is taken, Noa must decide: Will she sacrifice everything to save him? Even if it means learning their love may not be what she thought?

Check out my Renegade Red review down below.

Renegade Red by Lauren Bird Horowitz
5 out of 5 stars.

“The smell, the feel, intoxicated; she was drunk with pages white, thirsting for ink.”

I loved Shattered Blue so much and I was dying to see what happens next in the trilogy. Above is a closer look at the different covers that you can get Renegade Red in. As you read the book, you’ll see how all the different covers fit along with the book. Such a cool concept with the three different covers, so exciting!

One of my favorite things about Shattered Blue is that there is poetry written in the book that connects with the story as well. I was so happy to see that Renegade Red also had poetry included as well. A lot of the lines in the book even had a poetry feel to them. It all flows together nicely and it’s one of my favorite things!

“I’m a poet, Judah. Words are sacred.”

It was awesome jumping back into the Light Trilogy and getting to read more about the characters that I love, especially my fictional crush Judah! Noa was totally a “girl beast” in this book and it was awesome. She a total bad-ass and I loved it. You get to see a whole new side of Callum and Judah in this book, which I loved. In Renegade Red they are in Aurora, so it was cool getting a glimpse of Judah and Callum’s world; the fae world. Being in Aurora meant a ton of new characters! It was exciting to be introduced to new characters. Some you’ll love and some you’ll really dislike.

Noa, Judah, and Callum are on the hunt to find Noa’s sister Sasha and it gets pretty crazy throughout. Renegade Red is a lot darker (and a little creepy) than Shattered Blue was, but I loved that. It was different and cool. Renegade Red is twisted in so many ways and when you think you know what’s going on, you have no idea. I thought I had it all figured out and time after time I was shocked and surprised. I wanted to scream and I wanted to throw the book, lol. All in the best way, because it was such a good book.

Overall, Renegade Red was everything I hoped it would be and more. I loved how it all played out and I loved that it kept me on the edge of my seat every single page. Amazing. There are so many twist in this book. The ending, OMG. I am already dying for the third book. Mind-blowing! Your heart will stop and it will shatter. I am still trying to pick up the pieces.

“Love is tricky, and love is strong. Not some flower but a warrior weed, growing in any condition, through any obstacle, surviving froze tundras, pushing up through cracks in stone!”

Random|| Update, Birthday Haul, Pictures.

Hello!

The last update I did was in February, oops. It was my February recap/book haul post, which I was pretty proud of my reading that month. 😀 I figured today I will do an update and picture post with that’s happening in my life right now. I haven’t done one in awhile. I’ve been pretty busy getting all my wedding stuff done. Almost time! About sixteen days away…yikes! I still have so many little things to do. I think it’ll all come together though, so I’m not too freaked out….yet.

One of the little things below. Andy and I labeled about 60 of these things the other night.

img_5973

Last Friday (March 3rd) I had a birthday! I turned 29…dang! I am getting so old, but luckily for me I don’t feel or look 29; so it’s all good. 😛 I worked on my birthday, but then I went out with my old sister and that was fun. I ate cake for breakfast for three days straight too.

The fiance got me this emoji birthday balloon, which I love so much. Taco Bell for my birthday and it was amazing as always.

I was pretty spoiled this year as far as birthday gifts go and I got some pretty amazing gifts from my family and friends. Want to see my birthday haul?

These are a mix of gifts from my two sisters, Shelbie (book_shelbs) and Maren (The Worn Bookmark). Everything is amazing and on point to what I like. They know me so well. I am living for my Rumple & Belle sticker and my shark pizza shirt. I love everything so much…ahhhh! It’s a mix of books, Funkos, Stickers, Doctor Who, Supernatural, CATS, PIZZA, Pokemon!! A Stranger Things candle, which smells like Eleven’s waffles and it’s amazing. Hah. Love those girls. 🙂

img_5902

My cousin Michelle got me a ton of things for my birthday as well. A few shirts, which are cute. Nail polish and lots of photo crafts and a travel box, which will be perfect for saving my honeymoon stuff in! Andy’s parents got me this amazing shirt; books & cats yessss! And a Target gift card. Target is my favorite store…ever.

While I am talking about cute stuff, I’ll show you my Sherlock Nerdy Post. I usually save it for a monthly subscription post, but I probably won’t do one this month. I think this Sherlock box was my favorite one yet! I skipped the Disney box, but I am getting the Middle Earth one next month. 😀 Anyway, onto my Sherlock Nerdy Post unboxing!

img_5690

This is everything together and I’ll post below of some of my favorite things. Included were a ton of awesome quotes/prints, bookmarks, sticker, enamel pin, notepad, and a new item they never had before…WASHI TAPE! I am obsessed with washi tape.

A few of my favorite things.

I also go the Sherlock Nerdy Tee that went along with the box. It’s a separate subscription though. I am obsessed with this shirt!

img_5170

This isn’t a book blog without talking about books, so here are a couple books that I got on Tuesday. Some highly anticipated books that I have been dying to get my hands on.

The Song Rising…finally. I know I just read the first two books last month, but it’s been a hard couple weeks waiting for this book. I know some of you have been waiting years, but holy crap this series is everything to me. I need my Warden. And GOODBYE DAYS! You beautiful beautiful sad (crying still) book. I loved this book so much and I am glad to finally have a finished copy in my hands.

My mom, sister, and aunt went out one Friday night to the beach to drink. There was a live band too. Can we just appreciate these blender cup drinks? Our drinks came in a cup that looked like a dang blender and they were amazing.

I may or may not have posted this picture on the blog before, but Dax celebrated his 7th birthday in February. Seven years old. 😦 *crying* He’s still very much a puppy though. He’s not a grumpy old man yet.

img_4861

While I am showing you furbabies with hats….I bought this little hat for St. Patrick’s Day and I had to put it on ColbyJack. He hates hats, but I can’t help but want to put ALL THE HATS on him. A million picture attempts later, this is what I got…

And here’s a couple pictures of my girly October. She’s so pretty and she’s growing so fast and I hate it. I want her to stay tiny forever. She’ll be one in June (or July).

And this picture of Dax, haha. 😛 And sorry…but another picture of Dax, because look at his face! He was having the time of life at the park.

I may or may not have two outside cats that look almost identical to my inside cats, lol. Why am I a crazy cat lady? Seriously….

Here are some random nature type pictures. Sky, flowers, trees, etc. I love taking pictures of things outdoors, but I honestly hate bugs and all of that. lol. Andy wants to go camping and I’m like “is there a house though?”.

Here is a picture of the Status of Liberty bookmark that I got because I am going to New York City for part of my honeymoon! It’s from Craftedvan. The other picture is a picture of my mom’s pineapple that she’s growing. It’s so pretty right now and colorful.

That’s all for this update and post. So many pictures! Feel free to follow me on any of my Instagram accounts to see more pictures! 😀

OH YEAH, a year ago today I got engaged. 😛 AHHH! It’s also Bird’s birthday today (Shattered Blue), so HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO HER! I can’t wait for you guys to read Renegade Red when it releases next week. She was actually in on the entire plot with Andy proposing to me. Since Shattered Blue has been a big part of my life and the engagement, it was only fitting to include it in my engagement photo shoot last year.

I hope you have a great day! 🙂

Recap & Book Haul|| February.

februaryrecap

Hello!

I have been so MIA on the blog this month and I am so sorry for that! I’ve been insanely busy with getting all of my wedding stuff done. I don’t have much longer! I’ll still be popping in from time to time to read your blogs and comment as much as I can, but I still have lots more things to do for my wedding. Luckily it’s all the little things. As for my reading, I have done pretty awesome this month with that. I’ve been using whatever free time I have left to read.

Here is what I read this month. You can find a full list of these books and the other books I read this year over here. All will be linked to Goodreads below and I will also link to individual blog posts for them if I did a review.

Physically Read Books:
These are the books that I read by myself (not audiobooks) throughout the month of February.

ernesthemingwaytheboneseasonmimeordergoodbyedays

The Complete Short Stories by Ernest Hemingway – 4 out of 5 stars.
I’ve never read any Hemingway stories, but I was helping a friend out with a project so I read them. Some were boring. Some were really good. I loved the Nick stories the most.

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon – Review. – 5 out of 5 stars.
The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon – 5 out of 5 stars.
Please excuse my language, but HOLY. FUCK. THIS. SERIES. I love it so much. All the feels. All the craziness. The world. The characters. WARDEN, sigh. Forever love him. I am so excited that The Song Rising is releasing next week, because I need more! Feel free to check out my review of The Bone Season for more.

Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner – Review. – 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Zentner has done it again. Shattered my heart. This book was SO good. It was as good as I hoped it would be. It was emotional. It was sad. It broke my heart so many times over. I flew through it, because it was hard to put down. Great characters. Great story. Great message. Feel free to check out my review for more.

ghostuniversity

The Ghost at 95 by Barry Lyga – 4 out of 5 stars.
Loving the University by Barry Lyga – # out of 5 stars.
These are short stories written by Barry Lyga (author of the Jasper Dent (I Hunt Killers) series. Each month in 2017 he’s releasing a new story (that can only be bought within that month and then they are gone) and all the proceeds going to the American Civil Liberties Union. ACLU defend the First Amendment. I think that’s pretty awesome and generous of him. I really enjoyed these two and I am looking forward to see what the rest of the short stories for the year are!

thisiswhereitendsforbiddenlola

This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp –  4 out of 5 stars.
I’m glad I finally read this book. It was so intense and so crazy. I flew through it. It was so hard to put down. It was also really sad.

Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma – 5 out of 5 stars.
I’ve been wanting to read this book for awhile now and I finally did. I wasn’t sure what to expect, because it’s about sibilings that fall in love with each other. It ended up being so much more than that though. At times I wasn’t sure how I was supposed to feel, because it’s so wrong but so sad. This book seriously broke my heart. Shattered it. I cried quite a bit and I wasn’t expecting the ending at all. I was picturing something completely different and BOOM! Killed me. Heartbreaking story.

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins – 4 out of 5 stars.
Something fun! I needed this after all the sad books I read this month. I really enjoyed Lola. It was a fun story and I loved the characters. Cricket…loved him. I was thrilled when I seen that Anna and St. Clair (from Anna and the First Kiss) was also in the book. I loved them in the first book.


February Book Haul

My book haul is so small this month. I have been trying so hard not to buy any books. Book Outlet has been on point with their books this year, but somehow I have stayed away from them and didn’t get any. There are probably 15+ on their site RIGHT NOW that I want and I have been good. LOL. I did get a few books though.

img_5604

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Mathew Quick

I’ve been wanting Milk and Honey for awhile now and decided to finally get it. Super stoked to read it. I read Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and loved it. I seen it at the Dollar Tree (if you didn’t know, it’s a store that everything cost only one dollar), so I got that one since I don’t own it.

What did you read this month? Have you read any of the books that I read? What new books did you get this month? Feel free to link me to your wrap up and book haul posts!

That’s all for my February wrap up and book haul. I am pretty happy with the month of February. I’m not entirely sure how much reading I will get done in March since my wedding is happening pretty soon, but I am starting The Night Circus and will definitely be reading The Song Rising.

I hope you have a great day!

Thoughts|| Goodbye Days.

image1

Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner
4.5 out of 5 stars.

“For the most part, you don’t hold the people you love in your heart because they rescued you from drowning or pulled you from a burning house. Mostly you hold them in your heart because they save you, in a million quiet and perfect ways, from being alone.”

Goodreads Description: Can a text message destroy your life? Carver Briggs never thought a simple text would cause a fatal crash, killing his three best friends, Mars, Eli, and Blake. Now Carver can’t stop blaming himself for the accident and even worse, there could be a criminal investigation into the deaths. Then Blake’s grandmother asks Carver to remember her grandson with a ‘goodbye day’ together. Carver has his misgivings, but he starts to help the families of his lost friends grieve with their own memorial days, along with Eli’s bereaved girlfriend Jesmyn. But not everyone is willing to forgive. Carver’s own despair and guilt threatens to pull him under into panic and anxiety as he faces punishment for his terrible mistake. Can the goodbye days really help?


I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I was beyond stoked when I was approved for Goodbye Days. The Serpent King was my favorite book last year, so I was excited to see what else Zentner had up his sleeve!

Of course, he did not disappoint. This book was everything I hoped it would be. It was a tough subject to read about. Goodbye Days made me pretty angry at times and really sad other times. Mostly because I couldn’t believe what was happening to Carver. It really made me angry, because I felt like he didn’t do anything wrong. He was also not treated very well by some of his friends’ families. I don’t want to go too much into what happened, because I don’t want to spoil the book for you guys. I was hurting for Carver though.

Carver was going through a lot of emotional (and physical) things as he dealt with the loss of his three best friends. It was not at all easy for him and being thrown other not so good things in his face as he is already struggling with the loss of his friends was tough to read. You can really tell how much his friends meant to him and how much he loved them. I couldn’t even imagine losing my three best friends and all at one time. I loved all the little stories about his friends, Eli, Mars, and Blake. Zentner is so good at writing about friendships and portraying them so well. It makes you want to be their friends too. They seemed like really awesome guys and their friendship is what everyone hopes to have in a friend. SAUCE CREW!

“If grief is a pounding surf, the absence is a melancholy, gently tossing sea.”

I’m glad that Carver had Jesymn and Georgia after the death of his friends. They were there to help him when he needed someone to talk to and I believe played a huge role in helping him get through everything. And of course I can’t forget Nana Betsy, loved her. I teared up and cried throughout this entire book. I loved the idea behind the goodbye days and each one was so different from the other. I found myself saving line after line, because it was so good. As soon as I get my pre-ordered copy, I will be flagging everything that I saved! So many quote worthy things, because the entire book was written so well.

Overall, this book was SO good. It was as good as I hoped it would be. It was emotional. It was sad. It broke my heart so many times over. I flew through it, because it was hard to put down. Great characters. Great story. Great message. Texting and driving is a relevant thing. It’s happening every day. You may not think anything will happen to you and that you’ve done it a million times and it’s okay. That’s not always the case. It’s happening right now as I am writing this review. It’s also about moving forward and the struggles with losing someone close to you, the grief, the sadness, and everything that comes with it. I loved this book and I highly recommend picking it up. It’ll be releasing March 7th, so mark those calendars!

“The universe—fate—is cruel and random. Things happen for many reasons. Things happen for no reason.”

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I’ve actually been reading quite a bit, which is awesome considering I am SO busy with getting all the last minute wedding things done. There has been quite a lot of hiccups with that, which sucks. Most hasn’t been turning out like I want it to, but honestly, some of it is my fault. It’s been nice to escape all of the crazy wedding stuff with reading more. Here’s what I’ve been reading over the last week/two weeks.

Goodbye Days by Jeff Zentner

I was approved on Netgalley for Goodbye Days and I am so stoked. I’ve been dying to get my hands on Zentner’s new book. The Serpent King was my favorite book that I read last year, so I am excited that I get to read it now. I am about halfway through it already, it’s so hard to put down. It’s so sad though! 😦 The Serpent King tore me to pieces and I have a feeling this one will too.

Here’s the Goodreads description if you’re interested: Can a text message destroy your life? Carver Briggs never thought a simple text would cause a fatal crash, killing his three best friends, Mars, Eli, and Blake. Now Carver can’t stop blaming himself for the accident and even worse, there could be a criminal investigation into the deaths.

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon – Review.
The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon

I have no idea why it took me so long to read this series. It’s so amazing and I loved them both so much. I gave both The Bone Season and The Mime Order five stars. I’ve been REALLY picky with my ratings over the last year or so, so giving these both five stars is big! So action packed and fast paced. So hard to put down and easy to fly through them. Great story line, world, and characters. I loved everything about this series and I am dying to get my hands on the third book in a few weeks! I plan to read that one right away. This series will NO LONGER collect dust on my shelves. Feel free to check out my review of the Bone Season linked above.

Here’s The Bone Season‘s Goodreads description if you’re interested: The year is 2059. Nineteen-year-old Paige Mahoney is working in the criminal underworld of Scion London, based at Seven Dials, employed by a man named Jaxon Hall. Her job: to scout for information by breaking into people’s minds. For Paige is a dreamwalker, a clairvoyant and, in the world of Scion, she commits treason simply by breathing. It is raining the day her life changes for ever. Attacked, drugged and kidnapped, Paige is transported to Oxford – a city kept secret for two hundred years, controlled by a powerful, otherworldly race. Paige is assigned to Warden, a Rephaite with mysterious motives. He is her master. Her trainer. Her natural enemy. But if Paige wants to regain her freedom she must allow herself to be nurtured in this prison where she is meant to die.

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

I honestly have no idea what I am going to read next. I’m not really sure what I am in the mood for. I think I’ll for sure read Milk and Honey until I figure out what I want to read next. It’s a book of poems, so it’ll be a really quick read. It’ll also be different what I have been reading the last month and a half. I like reading poetry books like these. I read I Wrote This For You a few years ago and loved that and this a bit similar to that.

Here’s the Goodreads description if you’re interested: Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. It is about the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. It is split into four chapters, and each chapter serves a different purpose, deals with a different pain, heals a different heartache. milk and honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
