On My Shelf: Crave by: Monica Murphy

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.

I snagged this book ages ago because it sounded like a me read. But now I've kinda gotten over the whole Billionaire romance thing. Still though, I do love me some quick romance read and this does sound like that. I am really undecided on this one.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Mini Review: Untamed (Splintered #3.5) by: A.G. Howard

Release Date: December 15, 2015
from Amulet Books
Goodreads | Amazon

"A post-Ensnared collection of three stories—available in both print and e-versions.

Alyssa Gardner went down the rabbit hole and took control of her destiny. She survived the battle for Wonderland and the battle for her heart. In this collection of three novellas, join Alyssa and her family as they look back at their memories of Wonderland.

In Six Impossible Things, Alyssa recalls the most precious moments of her life after Ensnared, and the role magic plays in preserving the happiness of those she loves. Alyssa’s mother reminisces about her own time in Wonderland and rescuing the man who would become her husband in The Boy in the Web. And Morpheus delves into Jeb’s memories of the events of Splintered in The Moth in the Mirror, available in print for the first time.

This collection expands upon Ensnared's epilogue, and includes some deleted scenes to provide a “director’s cut” glimpse into the past and futures of our favorite Splintered characters."

My Thoughts:

**spoilers for Splintered, Unhinged, and Ensnared ahead**

This was a fun little extra for fans of the Splintered series. I had already read Moth In The Mirror when it originally released and really enjoyed it. So with Untamed, I only read The Boy In The Web and Six Impossible Things. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Boy In The Web. This one is told from Alison’s (Alyssa’s Mom) point of view and I just don’t love Alison. She has never been my favorite. This one also didn’t really give us anything new; we all kinda knew this already. It was a fun read but I was a bit meh on it. As for Six Impossible Things, this one was fun and was what I was looking for from Untamed. This story dove into six of Alyssa’s memories; three with Jeb and three with Morpheus. The Jeb ones were okay but I ADORED the Morpheus ones. If I’m being honest, those memories are what I was most looking for out of these novellas. I wanted to see some more Morpheus and Alyssa and I wanted a peek into their happily ever after. I will forever love Morpheus and I ate up every bit of his presence. So all in all, Untamed was a fun little trip back to Wonderland for fans of the series.

Recent Reads: Wizards and Vampires and Demons and Gods

Recent Reads is feature I recently started on the blog. The point is to feature books I've read recently in quick recap fashion with fun info-graphics. The info-graphics came from the Bookout app, which is a great app for bloggers. You can log quotes and thoughts and track your reading stats (and no I'm not paid for this, I just really like this app). Recently I dove into worlds of wizards, vampires, demons, and gods.

Add To Goodreads
"On her eighteenth birthday, Princess Evelayn of Eadrolan, the Light Kingdom, can finally access the full range of her magical powers. The light looks brighter, the air is sharper, and the energy she can draw when fighting feels almost limitless.

But while her mother, the queen, remains busy at the war front, in the Dark Kingdom of Dorjhalon, the corrupt king is plotting. King Bain wants control of both kingdoms, and his plan will fling Evelayn onto the throne much sooner than she expected.

In order to defeat Bain and his sons, Evelayn will quickly have to come into her ability to shapeshift, and rely on the alluring Lord Tanvir. But not everyone is what they seem, and the balance between the Light and Dark comes at a steep price." 

I adore this cover and it sounds like a me read!
