A Quick Currently Reading Update

Hey everyone!

I hope everyone who celebrates had a good Thanksgiving holiday. I know it was crazy for me, and I haven’t gotten much reading done. To try and get myself back into routine, and to give myself a bit of a kick in the butt, I figured I’d share the books I’m currently reading. They are:

Marriages of convenience are so…inconvenient.

Rescued by Calvin McLoughlin from a would-be subway attacker, Holland Bakker pays the brilliant musician back by pulling some of her errand-girl strings and getting him an audition with a big-time musical director. When the tryout goes better than even Holland could have imagined, Calvin is set for a great entry into Broadway—until he admits his student visa has expired and he’s in the country illegally.

Holland impulsively offers to wed the Irishman to keep him in New York, her growing infatuation a secret only to him. As their relationship evolves from awkward roommates to besotted lovers, Calvin becomes the darling of Broadway. In the middle of the theatrics and the acting-not-acting, what will it take for Holland and Calvin to realise that they both stopped pretending a long time ago?


It was supposed to be epic.

During a late-night poker game, tennis teammates Colin, Ceo, Grahame, and Rhody make a pact to go on a camping trip in Yosemite National Park. And poker vows can’t be broken.

So the first sign that they should ditch the plan is when Rhody backs out. The next is when Ceo replaces him with Ellie, a girl Grahame and Colin have never even heard of. And then there’s the forest fire at their intended campsite.

But instead of bailing, they decide to take the treacherous Snow Creek Falls Trail to the top of Yosemite Valley. From there, the bad decisions really pile up.

A freak storm is threatening snow, their Craigslist tent is a piece of junk, and Grahame is pretty sure there’s a bear on the prowl. On top of that, the guys have some serious baggage (and that’s not including the ridiculously heavy ax that Grahame insisted on packing) and Ellie can’t figure out what their deal is.

And then one of them doesn’t make it back to the tent.

Desperate to survive while piecing together what happened, the remaining hikers must decide who to trust in this riveting, witty, and truly unforgettable psychological thriller that reveals how one small mistake can have chilling consequences.


Those are the books I’m currently reading. I’ve started Roomies, and I’m about 20% in, while I’ve only read a few pages of Bad Call. I’m loving Roomies so far, and I’m so excited that I actually have time to read now that Thanksgiving and Black Friday are over. So, what are you reading right now? Half of my TBR comes from “currently reading” posts, so please share!

Review: Dream Eater by K. Bird Lincoln (Spoiler Free)

dream eater.jpg

Title: Dream Eater

Author: K. Bird Lincoln

Genre: NA Urban Fantasy

Publication Date: April 4, 2017

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Koi Pierce dreams other peoples’ dreams.

Her whole life she’s avoided other people. Any skin-to-skin contact–a hug from her sister, the hand of a barista at Stumptown coffee–transfers flashes of that person’s most intense dreams. It’s enough to make anyone a hermit.

But Koi’s getting her act together. No matter what, this time she’s going to finish her degree at Portland Community College and get a real life. Of course it’s not going to be that easy. Her father, increasingly disturbed from Altzheimer’s disease, a dream fragment of a dead girl from the casual brush of a creepy PCC professor’s hand, and a mysterious stranger who speaks the same rare Northern Japanese dialect as Koi’s father will force Koi to learn to trust in the help of others, as well as face the truth about herself.

Title: Rowan Wood Legend (The Lost Clan #2)

Author: Olivia Wildenstein

Genre: NA Urban Fantasy

Publication Date: August 14, 2017

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.

SOME LEGENDS ARE BETTER LEFT UNTOLD.

I wasn’t the sort of girl who believed in fairytales, let alone tales about faeries. But that changed the day Faeries came to my small town and Hunters rose from their graves.

On that fateful day, I received a book, a peculiar collection of myths and legends. Turns out it was so much more than stories. And just as I was on the verge of unlocking its secrets, it was stolen from me by someone I called a friend.

Now, I don’t know whom I can turn to, whom I can trust. All I know is that there are two sides, and I am straddling the great divide because I am both Faerie and Hunter. And although I swore I would never choose, I am slowly falling for one of those sides…

Review: Rose Petal Graves by Olivia Wildenstein (Spoiler Free)

rose petal graves

Title: Rose Petal Graves

Author: Olivia Wildenstein

Genre: NA Urban Fantasy

Publication Date: March 29, 2017

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.

TRIGGER WARNING: While I will not be talking about it in detail in my review, I will say that this book does include the topic of suicide.

Ancient secrets cannot remain buried forever.

Founded two centuries ago by a powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly.

Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.

As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, new people began arriving in Rowan, unnervingly handsome and odd people. I begged them to leave, but they stayed, because their enemies—my ancestors—were beginning to awaken.
