Swallow, Daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on heav’n or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, Daughter. Stay alive.

The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn’t speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would trade his soul and lose his son to the sky.

My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free.

But freedom will require escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a bird?

The Bird and the Sword review banner

For me, this book had two strikes against it from the get go:
1) I’ve only read one other Amy Harmon book, and I wasn’t impressed. *runs and hides*
2) I don’t read fantasy very often. Read More

Review ♥ Lingus by Mariana Zapata

Review ♥ Lingus by Mariana Zapata

I have never believed in Santa Claus, and the Tooth Fairy was highly suspect as a child. However, the idea of a fairy godmother, while not remotely realistic, has always appealed to me. Mariana Zappata is like a literary fairy godmother, able to transform the deepest of book slumps into joy simply with strokes on a keyboard. I was in a book Funk with a capital “F” after reading my last book. Zappata worked her magic with Lingus, though, and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Review, Excerpt & $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway ♥ Trust by Jana Aston

Review, Excerpt & $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway ♥ Trust by Jana Aston

Jana Aston just made my day. This story is so freaking cute that I giggled—actually giggled like a schoolgirl—my way through the first chapter of Trust. That led to full-out laughing out loud and swooning throughout the rest of the book. In the end, I wound up with sore cheeks from smiling so much. Chloe is absolutely adorkable. Her numerous dating disasters are cringe-worthy and hysterical. She takes the prize as the most socially awkward, anxiety-ridden, yet lovable character in recent memory. Like, we’re total besties now.

Review ♥ So Much More by Kim Holden

Review ♥ So Much More by Kim Holden

I started reading So Much More yesterday evening and before I knew it the sun was rising. I simply had to finish it so I got zero sleep. And you know what? It’s worth the yawns, puffy eyes, and dark circles I’m suffering today because once again Kim Holden has slain me with a fascinating story that has all the feels and then some.

Review ♥ Kulti by Mariana Zapata

Review ♥ Kulti by Mariana Zapata

This book! I’m still floored. Truth: I’ve wanted to read Kulti for quite some time, but I was put off by the long length. I finally caved when I discovered I could borrow the audio book from the library—16 hours worth of narration. I’m not gonna lie. Kulti has a detailed storyline that unfolds at an extremely leisurely pace. However, it’s totally absorbing. My only regret is waiting so long to read this!

Review ♥ Broken Prince by Erin Watt

I’ve got a fever for the Royals, and the only cure is more Royals! If you’ve read Paper Princess by Erin Watt, chances are that the stunning cliffhanger left you not so patiently waiting for Broken Prince. I’m thrilled to report that it surpassed my expectations on every level. This book is filled with all the delicious drama and angst I craved, served up in an incredibly addictive and unpredictable way.
