January Relaunch

When I started blogging almost five years ago I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Through this blog I have been able to meet so many amazing people. I’ve been able to host blog tours and organize events for authors I admire so much. I’ve been able to have numerous internships in the publishing industry that I could not have gotten if I had never entered this world.
For the first three years it was so much fun all the time. I was loving the books I was reading and loving being part of blog tours and writing posts and going to events. Then I entered my last few semesters of college and my course load was insane. Couple that with working full time and there was no time for me to read. I started to find myself marathoning shows on Netflix as a way to escape the stress instead of reading. The blog started to be ignored.
A few months ago I had a revival on the blog and got so many posts up. I read more books in one week than I had the entire time in 2015. My love for reading was revitalized. But ultimately I think it was too much at once and again I became burned out. It was because of what happened a few months ago that I decided to take some pressure free time away from the blog. Over the past few years I would get so stressed out whenever I wasn’t posting, but I decided to take an actual leave from this blog and not feel guilty about it. That decision has helped me come to some really exciting decisions.
In January 2017 this blog is going to have a complete relaunch. The name will change and the look and feel to the website is going to change a lot. I am so excited for this new start and I am so thankful to any readers out there who have stuck with me. I am so thankful for the people in my life who have encouraged me to take the time away that I needed, but also made sure that I didn’t give up.
In 2017 I am looking forward to being in love with blogging again. I am excited for the books I will read and the events I will attend. Thanks for giving me another chance.


ANDROMEDA Release Day!

It’s here! It’s finally here! I am so excited that you guys all get to read ANDROMEDA by Meg Trotter now. I feel so privileged to have been able to take part in the process of bringing this book to all of you. I am so lucky Meg trusted me enough to help her. The e-book is available on Amazonfor just $2.99! What a steal you guys!

About ANDROMEDA

For as long as she can remember, seventeen-year-old Princess Andromeda has done what was expected of her. She consented to a political marriage to a hateful older man. She became a quiet, obedient housewife. After her husband’s death, she agreed to be united in yet another political marriage for the sake of her country’s stability.
However, when the Greek goddess of the sea disrupts this second wedding ceremony, jealous of the pomp of the celebration, she places a curse on Andromeda and her home: either sacrifice the princess to a sea beast or let the creature destroy her country. A visit to the Oracle reveals that Andromeda needs four ancient weapons of the Greek gods to fight off the beast and the goddess who controls it.
Now Andromeda must find the strength and the cunning to do what she has never done before — to fight for her own life — while keeping the well-meaning “hero” Perseus out of her way.


About Meg Trotter

Meg Trotter writes novels about myths, legends and people who populate worlds both imaginary and real.
Her debut series, the “God-Haunted Saga” will focus on mythology set in ancient Greece. Though Meg has not gotten the chance to go to Greece herself, she’s spent countless hours pouring over books and maps. And since all her knowledge of the place, history and culture is coming from reading books, she’s pretty certain she’s pronouncing every Greek term incorrectly.
She was raised in Florida and currently resides in Tennessee with her husband, son, and extremely fluffy cat. When she’s not working at her full-time job as a journalist or wrangling her toddler, she’s usually spending way too much time playing Sims.

June Reads

Somehow I got all the books from May finished! I didn’t think I was going to, so yay!For June I have some more books on my list. The first batch of books I will be reading consists of catch up books, review books from Netgalley, and review requests from authors. Check them out below!

In Macedon, war rises like smoke, forbidden romance blooms and ancient magic tempered with rage threatens to turn an empire to dust

After winning his first battle, Prince Alexander fights to become the ruler his kingdom demands—but the line between leader and tyrant blurs with each new threat.

Meanwhile, Hephaestion, cast aside by Alexander for killing the wrong man, must conceal the devastating secret of a divine prophecy from Katerina even as the two of them are thrust together on a dangerous mission to Egypt.

The warrior, Jacob, determined to forget his first love, vows to eradicate the ancient Blood Magics and believes that royal prisoner Cynane holds the key to Macedon’s undoing.

And in chains, the Persian princess Zofia still longs to find the Spirit Eaters, but first must grapple with the secrets of her handsome—and deadly—captor.

New York Times bestselling author Eleanor Herman entwines the real scandals of history with epic fantasy to reimagine the world’s most brilliant ruler, Alexander the Great, in the second book of the Blood of Gods and Royals series.

Kate Parker, is a 17 year old senior living in Texas. She’s on the swim team, has two incredible best friends, and a passion for saving animals. She falls hard when she meets a mysterious and fascinating guy named Lucas. He has a sexy accent and a killer smile. However, she sees unexplained pain and anger in his dark brown eyes. He claims he’s a foreign exchange student from Spain who is attending the local University—Kate knows there’s more to his story than that. She works hard to discover who he is—what he is.

She won’t rest until she’s sent every walking corpse back to its grave. Forever.

If anyone had told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.

Her father was right. The monsters are real.

To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies.

Dry, sarcastic, sixteen-year-old Cam Cooper has spent the last seven years in and out hospitals. The last thing she wants to do in the short life she has left is move 1,500 miles away to Promise, Maine – a place known for the miraculous events that occur there. But it’s undeniable that strange things happen in Promise: everlasting sunsets; purple dandelions; flamingoes in the frigid Atlantic; an elusive boy named Asher; and finally, a mysterious envelope containing a list of things for Cam to do before she dies. As Cam checks each item off the list, she finally learns to believe – in love, in herself, and even in miracles.

A debut novel from an immensely talented new writer, The Probability of Miracles crackles with wit, romance and humor and will leave readers laughing and crying with each turn of the page

This is not the time for the fight to end. Now is when the fight will begin. This is the time to regain what has been lost.Alera

Queen of a fallen kingdom, secretly in love with the enemy.

Shaselle

Daughter of a murdered father, rebel with a cause.

One lives behind the former Hytanican palace walls and walks the razor’s edge to keep the fragile peace in her beloved homeland. The other slips through the war-torn streets, seeking retribution for her family’s tragedy, following whispers of insurgency.

Both face choices that will separate them from those they cannot help but love. As their stories intertwine, a conspiracy ignites that may end in slavery or death—or lead to freedom anew, if only each can face what must be sacrificed.

In the City of Lights, two star-crossed lovers battle a fate that is destined to tear them apart again and again for eternity.

When Kate Mercier’s parents die in a tragic car accident, she leaves her life–and memories–behind to live with her grandparents in Paris. For Kate, the only way to survive her pain is escaping into the world of books and Parisian art. Until she meets Vincent.

Mysterious, charming, and devastatingly handsome, Vincent threatens to melt the ice around Kate’s guarded heart with just his smile. As she begins to fall in love with Vincent, Kate discovers that he’s a revenant–an undead being whose fate forces him to sacrifice himself over and over again to save the lives of others. Vincent and those like him are bound in a centuries-old war against a group of evil revenants who exist only to murder and betray. Kate soon realizes that if she follows her heart, she may never be safe again.

Once I finish reading all of these I will post my new list of to-reads!
