On My Shelf: Stage Dive Series by: Kylie Scott

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 grabbed these bind ups a while ago because I know these are super popular, and rock stars are always fun. Of course I haven't made time to read them but I definitely still want to. Also I LOVE these covers, such a sucker for tattoos.

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

98 Thoughts I Had While Re-Reading A Court Of Wings And Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Release Date: May 2, 2017
from Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Goodreads | Amazon

"Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit – and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all."

My Thoughts:

1. There will be spoilers for the series to come. 
2. Oh I loved opening in Rhysand’s head. 
3. YOU  DESTROY THEM ALL FEYRE.
4. Feyre has truly come so far. 
5. Tamlin is a lot of things, but I’ll never understand how he forgave Ianthe for what she did to Feyre’s sisters. 
6. Ianthe is the worst. 
7. Tamlin is such an ass. Rhys would do a lot for Feyre, but he’d never sell out his people and Feyre wouldn’t expect or want him to.
8. Jurian was such a good deception and twist. 
9. What Ianthe does to Lucian is so gross.
10. Alis is such a smart cookie. 
11. Such an important note there. People saw Feyre suffering and their reaction was to protect Tamlin from it and not help her. 
12. Feyre is so damn smart. 
13. And Tamlin still cannot control his temper. 
14. Feyre maneuvers this all so well, but its Tamlin who digs his own grave with his choices. 
15. So so love Alis. 
16. Bwahahaha my evil genius Feyre. 
17. Cassian and Azriel making an entrance!
18. “I am High Lady of the Night Court” MY QUEEN.
19. My heart. This reunion. *sobs*
20. Stop being such an ass Lucian.
21. I love when Rhys puts Lucian in his place. 
22. “Amren is a bedtime story they told us as younglings to make us behave.” LMAOOOOO
23. OMG Nesta you are such a bitch. 
24. I actually can’t stand her. Like I understand why she is upset, but this is not Feyre’s fault and blaming her is such a crap reaction. She never ever gives Feyre credit for anything. 
25. Nesta really is such a bitch. Mor is trying to be nice and she just can’t be a person for five minutes.
26. It’s so sad watching Lucian see how informal it is in the Night Court. You know it’s what he wished he had in the Spring Court. 
27. THE NIGHT COURT BANTER IS MY FAVORITE.
28. I just love all the Rhys and Feyre feels in this book. 
29. I. Love. Azriel. 
30. I love this library scene so much.
31. Cassian and Feyre have such a great friendship.
32. “She ripped it out with her teeth.”
33. There is something there with the Bone Carver’s story. His brother confined by a lake. His sister confined. By a long ago female fae warrior whose bloodline is still within some human line. She could only contain them, not beat them. This is something and I can’t put my finger on what exactly. 
34. Poor Elain. She breaks my heart. But she is strong and a survivor. 
35. “Why bother when someone else can do it for me?” THIS IS NESTA IN A NUT SHELL. She doesn’t ever want to do the hard things for herself.
36. I ship Elain and Azriel so hard.
37. Mor I love you and I understand why she is upset, but there is a lot more at stake here and she needs to realize and accept that. 
38. There is more to the story with Eris and I wanna know what it is. 
39. I love Feyre’s flying lessons. 
40. The King’s Ravens are quite troublesome but also full of information.
41. BRYAXIS!
42. I want Vassa and Lucien to get a story so bad.
43. The King of Hybern is insane.
44. “She’s the High Lady of the Night Court, she may do as she wishes.”
45. Tarquin needs to get over himself. 
46. I love Amren and Varian.
47. Super not amused with Mor right now. She has no business getting between Cassian and Nesta.
48. You know one of my favorite things about this book is that we get to see Rhys and Feyre just be. In between all the crazy, there are some really sweet Rhys and Feyre moments and I love that I never for one second worried about them and their relationship. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love the tension and angst and push and pull of the will they won’t they, but I also love getting to see the after once they get through all the will they won’t they.
49. “Night triumphant and stars eternal.”
50. Ughhh Nesta had made SUCH progress.
51. UGHHHH TAMLIN IS THE WOOOOOOOORST. WE WERE HAVING SUCH A GOOD TIME WITHOUT YOU.
52. SCREW. YOU. TAMLIN.
53. “The sun was shining when I left you.”
54. Someone needs to kill Beron.
55. My god, Tamlin is such a baby.
56. That’s my girl Nesta.
57. You tell them Feyre. 
58. OF COURSE IT’S THE WOMEN TAKING CHARGE AND PLEDGING TO FIGHT FIRST.
59. Helion is great. 
60. I want the Helion and Lady of the Autumn Court story so badly. 
61. Elain is so damn strong. Willing to face Grayson even though she knows it’ll be bad.
62. Grayson is such a bastard.
63. Jurian you are such a plan ruiner. 
64. The Jurian thing really was a great twist though.
65. Yay Suriel!
66. “Only you can decide what breaks you.” 
67. IANTHE SUCH A BITCH.
68. So glad that bitch gets exactly what she deserves.
69. I hope the Weaver took her time with Ianthe.
70. “You were kind.” Feyre’s kindness is such an important factor and I love it. 
71. “Stay with him”“Stay with the High Lord and live to see everything righted.”
72. “Leave this world a better place than you found it.”
73. Damn you Cassian.
74. I love you Mor, but you need to remember Feyre is your High Lady and doesn’t answer to you.
75. Feyre just walking into Hybern’s camp proves how badass she is. 
76. At least Tamlin makes himself useful here. 
77. Azriel gives Elain truth teller! I love those two soooo much. Even if they never get together, they are good for one another. 
78. The speech Rhys gives before the battle always makes me cry.
79. I love this Bryaxis/Bone Carver/Weaver reveal so damn much. 
80. At least Tamlin’s good for making Beron show up. 
81. ALSO JURIAN TURNED OUT TO BE SO USEFUL.
82. MIRIAM AND DRAKON!!!!!
83. PAPA ARCHERON COMING IN CLUTCH!
84. Nesta and Cassian had come so far and then IT ALL GETS RUINED. 
85. THAT’S MY GIRL ELAIN. I can’t express how much I love that its Elain… quiet Elain… who comes through in the end. 
86. MY GIRL AMREN SAVING THE DAY.
87. GOD DAMN YOU RHYSAND.
88. When I thought we lost Rhysand… I about lost my mind. 
89. STAY WITH THE HIGH LORD.
90. AND LIVE TO SEE EVERYTHING RIGHTED.
91. ALL THE HAPPY TEARS GETTING RHYS AND AMREN BACK.
92. Gimme the Lucian and Vassa story. 
93. I also want the Miriam/Drakon/Jurian story.
94. I love Cassian. “We’re opening the fancy bottles.”
95. I frickin love Elain. I really do. 
96. UGH I ADORE THIS CHAPTER FROM RHYS POV. IT’S BEAUTIFUL.
97. I LOVE THIS FINAL CHAPTER SO MUCH. THE BARGAIN THEY MAKE. *sobs forever*
98. Perfect ending is perfect. 

Wrap Up:
This was such a wonderful conclusion to the first trilogy of this world. I love Rhys and Feyre so much and they got a happy ending they both very much deserved.  This book put me through the wringer but I’ll never tire of reading it over and over.

Waiting On Wednesday #279: Only A Breath Apart by: Katie McGarry

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine
It spotlilghts upcoming releases that we are dying to read.


Add To Goodreads
"Bestselling author Katie McGarry’s trademark wrong-side-of-the-tracks romance is given a new twist in the gritty YA contemporary novel, Only a Breath Apart. 

Jesse Lachlin is cursed. 

So the town folklore says, but while Jesse’s had his fair share of tragedy, the only curse he believes is in his grandmother’s will: in order to inherit his family farm he must win the approval of his childhood best friend, the girl he froze out his freshman year, Scarlett Copeland.

Scarlett Copeland is psychic.

Glory Gardner tells Scarlett she has hidden psychic abilities, but Scarlett thinks Glory is delusional. What is real is Scarlett’s father’s irrational fears, controlling attitude, and the dark secrets at home. Scarlett may have a way to escape, but there’s a hitch: she’ll have to rely on the one person she used to trust, the same boy who broke her heart, Jesse Lachlin.

Each midnight meeting pushes Jesse and Scarlett to confront their secrets and their feelings for each other. But as love blooms, the curse rears its ugly head…" 

I always love Katie McGarry, so I'm really excited for this one.

Only A Breath Apart will be released on January 22, 2019.
What are you waiting on?

Book Review: Kiss Collector by: Wendy Higgins

Release Date: December 18, 2018
from Harper Teen
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via edelweiss and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"When seventeen-year-old Zae Monroe gets cheated on by the only guy she’s ever loved, then watches her parents' marriage crumble, she decides to forget about relationships and turn the tables on the boys of the world. It’s time to take what she wants, and what she wants are kisses. Athletes, musicians, poets, and bad boys—their lips are all on her agenda, and it's time to collect.

Zae proposes a contest with her friends to see who can kiss the most boys during spring break. But what starts as a harmless competition leads to a downward spiral she can’t seem to break free of. As family, academic, friend, and guy drama come to a head, Zae is forced to face the reasons behind her boy angst, and starts to wonder if she was wrong about the male race...or at least some of them."

My Thoughts:

This was a cute read and I think people who are big fans of YA contemporaries will very much enjoy this book. I am not the biggest fan of YA contemporaries but I do love Wendy Higgins so I had to give this one a read. In the end it was really enjoyable and super cute.

Zae is a great heroine because she’s realistic. She is far from perfect and she has flaws and she has some unlikable moments and that’s why I liked her so very much. She is going through a really tough time and it’s understandable why she wants to find a way to take control. This book also puts a strong emphasis on the relationship Zae has with her girlfriends and while I do think they were terrible at times, I also appreciated that it showed them forgiving one another in the end.

I will say this book was a bit too catty for me at times. While I know that there are some girls who behave this way, I just get tired of seeing it portrayed so much. Girls can be so much more and I just no longer have the patience for it. But again I know it’s not necessarily unrealistic. Also for a book called Kiss Collector, I could have used a bit more romance. But I did enjoy the romance that popped up there finally at the end. Also the book did take a bit for me to really get into, but the last 25% I really really REALLY enjoyed. It definitely finished very strong.

All in all, Kiss Collector was a good YA contemporary and while I had some small issues with it I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to a fan of the genre.

Mini Review: Learn About Loss (Ghosts Of The Shadow Market #4) by: Cassandra Clare & Kelly Link

Release Date: July 10, 2018
from Shadow Market Enterprises
Goodreads | Amazon


"In a small town lost to despair, a dark carnival of a market appears. In the fourth in the USA Today bestselling Ghosts of the Shadow Market, faeries and warlocks we know converge, and the fate that will one day produce Kit Herondale is sealed."


My Thoughts:

Oh man. This one punched me RIGHT in the feels. It started off so nice. A little trip to the Shadow Market, met a nice new Iron Sister named Amelia, ran into a demon, and then BAM I was assaulted in my Will and Jem feels. Naturally I absolutely loved that and thought it was wonderful. This one was on the shorter side of these stories and it barely took any time to get through, but my oh my did it pack a punch. I’m forever reminded that Will and Jem and Tessa are my favorites. Also Jem is a truly wonderful person and I love him so.

Release Day Blast: Tequila High (100 Proof #1) by: M. Leighton (Review & Teasers)

She has one unbreakable rule, and he's determined to make her break it.

Release Date: November 18, 2018
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review. 
"Haley Brandt isn’t the one-night-stand type, but too much tequila and a man with two sinfully dark eyes left her breathless and willing to break her own rules. Her only solace was the fact that she’d never see him again.

Until the next morning, when she finds out he’s her ride out of town and back to the ranch where she grew up. 

Nixon Holt works with Haley’s father, so Haley makes her position clear—she doesn’t get involved with ranch employees. Ever.  At nineteen, she’d learned that lesson the hard way, and it became her one unbreakable rule."

My Thoughts:

I have been an M. Leighton fan for years now and with each and every release I dive into the book with excitement. I was extremely excited for this one because I am a tequila fan and couldn’t wait to see the tie in. I dove into this one almost immediately and it was so hard to put down.

Never have I ever wanted to visit a ranch so badly. I am not a country girl, I am city born and raised, but if they make them like Nixon there then I could maybe figure out some way to make it work haha. I adored Nixon; it’s kinda ridiculous how quickly I fell for him, but he was just so great. He is charming and sweet and funny. The banter… OH MY GOSH THE BANTER. Nixon and Haley go back and forth so much and they go a mile a minute and it’s fantastic. And speaking of Haley… I love that woman. She has been through quite a bit, but I love how she keeps picking herself back up and doing what she needs to do. The chemistry between these two is through the roof and they just work so well.

I also have to take some time to talk about Haley’s sisters, because honestly one of my favorite things about the book was the relationship between the sisters. Haley, Hope, Harper, and Hannah are great together and their relationship feels so true to actual sister relationships. They bicker and tease and they fight but at the end of the day they put one another first and have each other’s backs.

If you were a fan of some of Michelle’s older work (think The Wild Ones, Down To You, etc) then Tequila High is going to be perfect for you! It feels so much like those books. It is very much its own story and it’s not just a repeat of something she has already done, but this book elicits the same type of feelings those books did. It has so much heart and romance, all served with a side of heartache. And it’s addictive, so so addictive and easy to get lost in.

All in all, Tequila High is another hit from M. Leighton. Her books always make me feel so much and Nixon and Haley got under my skin in the best way.

Mini Review: The Date Dare by: Tara Sue Me

Release Date: November 19, 2018
from After Six Publishing Co
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"Who knew three words held such destructive power? No, not THOSE three words. I'm talking about the evil word trio that's my own personal kryptonite, that stole my best friend, and took away the only woman I've ever loved:
I dare you.
I was six when Darcy Patrick moved next door.
By the time we were eight, we were best friends.
At fifteen, I gave a classmate a black eye for calling her names.
At sixteen, she talked me through asking my crush to prom.
I helped her get over her first heartbreak at nineteen.
Two years later, she returned the favor.
It wasn’t until I was twenty-nine I realized I loved her.
And because I was too stupid to do anything about it,
at thirty, I lost her for good on a dare.
Darcy Patrick is tried of watching her best friend, Elliott Taber, date the wrong kind of woman. When his latest flavor of the month walks out on him, she dares him to let her find his next date. Elliott agrees, but only after Darcy agrees to allow him to do the same.
The dare is on.
The dates take place on the same night. One is an epic fail. The other is just plain epic.
Elliott isn’t prepared for the onslaught of emotions hitting him as Darcy seemingly finds everything she ever wanted with the man he set her up with. He should be happy for her. He should leave her alone.
But he can’t.
So he makes one more dare…."

My Thoughts:

This was such a quick and fun read! It’s seriously quick, I think I read it in like an hour and a half, but I loved being about to sit down and just enjoy this story beginning to end. I love the best friends to more trope, so this was extra fun for me. Darcy and Elliot just work so well together and they were so fun. Poor Elliot is clearly head over heels for Darcy and he winds up setting her up with the perfect guy. It’s so not easy for him and you really feel for him. It’s so hard because as a reader you want him to just tell her but you also understand how they don’t want to risk their friendship. And then Darcy is fun too. She clearly loves Elliot, but poor girl doesn’t even realize it herself. It was fun watching these two dance around one another and when they finally stop dancing it’s so great and rewarding. All in all, this is a really fun and sweet read and perfect for romance fans.

I read the first two books in this series and I really enjoyed them, but then when this one released I was busy and never got to it and then I just fell behind in the series as a whole. It makes me sad because I still want to know how this story concludes but I also know I've forgotten a lot from the first books. 

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

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine
It spotlilghts upcoming releases that we are dying to read.


"A high-fantasy gothic fairytale inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea.

Once upon a nightmare, her fairy tale begins...

After Lyra—a princess incapable of speech or sound—is cast out of her kingdom of daylight by her wicked aunt, a witch saves her life, steals her memories, and raises her in an enchanted forest ... disguised as a boy known only as Stain. Meanwhile, in Lyra's rival kingdom, the prince of thorns and night is dying, and the only way for him to break his curse is to wed the princess of daylight, for she is his true equal. As Lyra rediscovers her identity, an impostor princess prepares to steal her betrothed prince and her crown. To win back her kingdom, save the prince, and make peace with the land of the night, Lyra must be loud enough to be heard without a voice, and strong enough to pass a series of tests—ultimately proving she’s everything a traditional princess is not." 

I love this cover and I always adore A.G. Howard's books!

Stain will be released on January 15, 2019.

Book Review: Shades Of Wicked (Night Rebel #1) by: Jeaniene Frost

Release Date: October 30, 2018
from Avon
Goodreads | Amazon

"In this thrilling new Night Rebel series set in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress world, sexy and ruthless vampire Ian finally meets his match!

The Rule Breaker

Master vampire Ian is unrepentant, shameless…and every shade of wicked. He’s made one too many enemies in his two centuries of existence, including Dagon, a demon who now lays claim to his soul. Ian’s only chance to escape Dagon is to join forces with a Law Guardian, but he’s never been able to abide by the rules for long.

The Law Maker

Veritas’ normal role is police, judge and jury to reprobates like Ian. But she has her own ax to grind with Dagon, so if she can use Ian as bait…well, all’s fair in law and war. As they scour supernatural hotspots to perfect their trap, Veritas soon realizes Ian’s devil-may-care, roguish image hides something much more powerful. And Ian discovers that Veritas has shocking secrets of her own. As they’re drawn to each other with a passion as intense as their peril, either love or justice will prevail. But each will have devastating consequences…"

My Thoughts:

Ian’s book has been a long time coming and man oh man did this book deliver in every single way. This is one of my all-time favorite paranormal series and I love that it continues to deliver so many books in.

Ian has been coming along for a while now and slowly but surely he was becoming one of my favorite characters. And then Into The Fire happened and Ian STOLE that book. Vlad was never my favorite but throughout Into The Fire I was so much more invested in Ian than I was anyone else. Ian is just SO ridiculous and just himself and he legit says whatever comes to mind, but guys there is so much more to Ian than you could have ever guessed. I can’t believe I’m about to say this but I may love Ian more than Bones… it’s neck and neck… Ian is that good. And well… infamous chapter 32? This book puts that to SHAME. And Veritas! THAT WOMAN. I can’t. She really took me by surprise and there is so much more there than what we knew so far.

This book was just ridiculously good. It was HYSTERICAL and action packed and so damned hot and swoony. I mean, I think we all knew Ian’s book had to be hot, but this was fire. I never wanted to stop reading.

Also I have to talk about the narrator Tavia Gilbert. She is phenomenal and does such a great job with this series. Every character has a distinct voice and she just does such an amazing job. This is by far my favorite narration for any series ever. I’ll listen to anything this woman reads.

Shades Of Wicked was a fantastic read and easily one of my favorite reads of 2018. I’m already ready for the sequel because I’ll never get enough Ian.

Book Review: The Reckoning Of Noah Shaw (The Shaw Confessions #2) by: Michelle Hodkin

Release Date:November 13, 2018
from Simon Schuster Books for Young Readers
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"In this sequel to The Becoming of Noah Shaw, the companion series to the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer novels, legacies are revealed, lies are unraveled, and old alliances are forged. Noah’s reckoning is here.

Noah Shaw wants nothing more than to escape the consequences of his choices.

He can’t.

He’s sure the memories that haunt him are merely proof of a broken heart.

They aren’t.

He thinks he can move forward without first confronting his past.

He’s wrong."

My Thoughts:

*spoilers for The Becoming Of Noah Shaw*

I’m going to cut to the chase here; I really wish that we had never gotten this continuation to Noah and Mara’s story. In so many ways I feel like it has ruined what made that original trilogy great. And while I’ll forever love Noah and Mara because of that original trilogy, both of them have been a bit tainted by these new books and I’m forever going to be sad over it.

Look here’s the thing. Absolutely nothing happens in this book. Literally Noah and Goose just wander around getting drunk and what not and then every now and then there’s an info dump. I think we were supposed to believe they were being led places by other forces, but to the reader it was just a lot of Noah and Goose doing random crap and its tedious. There’s minimal plot if any and I never know what’s going on. And not in the good way from the first trilogy, I’m just annoyed and confused a lot. Also the fact that Noah and Mara had to break up at the end of the first book still annoys me. It didn’t need to happen and I think this book is weaker because Mara is so absent. Like why is she even on the cover?!?! She’s barely a part of this, other than Noah’s pining and then being mad at her. And then that damn ending. A whole book and nothing happens and then the last few pages throw in this ridiculous twist that somehow made me angrier than Noah and Mara’s breakup at the end of the first book. I’m already dreading how it’s going to play out in the next book. Which, yes I’ll read, because I’ve come this far and at this point I’m hoping and praying the last book will fix all this nonsense that was done to one of my favorite couples.

One thing I did like though was getting to see some of The Retribution Of Mara Dyer from Noah’s point of view. He was gone for so much of that book and I’ve always wondered what he was up to, so I very much enjoyed that piece of the book and it made me wish that instead of this trilogy we had gotten a Noah POV book from the original trilogy instead. And even though I’m annoyed with him right now, I do still love Noah and I hope he comes around and I hope Mara shows up soon and puts an end to this nonsense going on. Cause really, if Mara was around right now things would be going a lot differently and Noah wouldn’t have been herded so easily.

All in all, The Reckoning Of Noah Shaw and I have some real issues. I just really wish we had left that first fantastic trilogy alone. It had such a good ending and was such a ride and now I’m just perpetually sad.
