Lightning Strikes Twice- Book Review

cover_mdkI got this as an ARC for my honest opinion and review. I read and reviewed the book that came before this one. So I know Tylira from where the last book left off. She had manage to save the world once, but she is scared that she will not get lucky twice. This book switches locations. Her and Rusk end up in the middle of a battle. Someone wants them dead because she could be the only one that can stop them. I did think that Tylira did a few things that came off childish. I can’t wait to read the next book.




Protection- Book Review


I got this book as an ARC for my honest opinion and review. This is my first book Jay S. Wilder. If they are all like this I will be back for more. I have only read a few books that are military or ex-military. Nick has been assigned to deal with problems for the Company do to his specialized training. Nicole has become a problem. She has stuck her nose where it does not belong and stolen a valuable tech. Now Nick has been sent to watch her and that was a mistake. Now all he wants to do is touch her and once he does he is addicted to her. He wants to own her but that means going against the Company. He will have to deny all he has known to keep her alive.  Will they get together or will the Company have their number?






Alien’s Possession- Book Review


I got this book as an ARC for my honest opinion and review. Each book I read by this author shows me new world and adventures. I enjoy them all. There is female explore who is researching plants and happy doing that. Until her ship is attacked and she is forcibly sold as a slave at an auction. She is bought and told to obey. She is living in a much more dangerous world now. Can the man who purchased her protect her and work his way in to her heart and soul? One way to find out is to read it for yourself.






Rise of the Archmage- Book Review


I got this from the author for my honest opinion and review. This is the fourth book in this series. This one head me a little tied up in knots. It had a hold of my heart because for someone to be punished for their beliefs or their feelings for someone else. That is just wrong. This one centers around Saul going against the church and centuries of tradition. Saul and his comrades are now on the run and doing all they can to escape the city. Each new book shows how they work together and becoming a closer unit. Each has their own skills and talents that help them at the right moment. I love a couple of the new characters. A really good book.






Goodreads Reading Challenge

I did not do a lot of reading last year I have mentioned this a couple of times already in a couple of posts before this one. If you have not read those posts. I only read 14 books last year. I wanted to do a lot better than that. So I set a Goodreads goal of 100 books. Thinking that would give me something to shoot for. As of the time I am writing this post I have 103 books according to the Goodreads count. I know this is a little off. Goodreads counts box sets of books as one book. So the total is actually higher than that. I have not actually counted how much that is off. I just wanted you all to know that I have done it. Juts have to see come December what that number will be.

Thanks for reading my blog.

Keep reaching for the stars……

What really is an ARC?

I have been reading a lot of books and putting book reviews on here. That is something that I have not done before. But I have been getting emails from others that ask me if I want to read their books in exchange for reviews. I have been doing a lot of that. But as I understand it that an ARC stands for Advanced Reader Copy. But is it still an ARC if the author gives it to you and the book is already live on say Amazon or other book sites? In my opinion that is just a free book and not an ARC. This has been bugging me for a couple of days now. I mean now that I have actually sat down to think about it. Because if it is already out than there is nothing advanced about it. I know I might be thinking on it too much.

I should just be happy that I got the book for free. It is just that it does not make me want to hurry and read it since it is out there for all to read. I mean I will read it sooner or later since I have added to my TBR list. I actually have a notebook with the name of each author on it and the books I want to read by them listed. Than once I read it I highlight it so show that I have read it. then I have these little dot sticker that I put after the book once I have reviewed it. That is how I keep track of the books I have read and review. There are a couple hundred books in there that I still need to read, but some are from before I started to actually review books. I have only recently found out what an ARC and started to request some. Anyway I have a lot of reading to do today that I want to read. So I am going to get to that and get off my soapbox.

Keep looking to the stars…..

My Collection….

I was not planning to blog today, but decided that I should. I have a lot of books in my personal collection that I have been given and I have not had a chance to just read all them. SO I am going to make an effort to open the cabinet and take out a couple of books and add them to my current reading list. I want to pick a few that I have been looking to read and life just kind of got in the way. So once I post this short blog I am open to actually pick the books.

I know that it is time…….
