Reading progress update: I've read 2 out of 1360 pages.
The Tale of Genji - Murasaki Shikibu

I'm not even on page 2, there is a long introduction that I can't seem to get out of. It's got a lot of good background though, knowledge is power, etc.

Reading progress update: I've read 30 out of 190 pages.
The Solitary Summer - Elizabeth von Arnim

"What a blessing it is to love books.  Everybody must love something, and I know of no objects of love that give such substantial and unfailing returns as books and a garden."

No contest on the books -- and love of flowers ...

 

And Elizabeth has an honest-to-God favorites shelf!  Go figure!

"In the centre of my library there is a wooden pillar propping up the ceiling, and preventing it, so I am told, from tumbling about our ears; and round this pillar, from floor to ceiling, I have had shleves fixed, and on these shelves are all the books that I have read again and again, and hope to read many times more -- all the books, that is, that I love quite the best.  In the bookcases round the walls are many that I love,  but here in the centre of the room and easiest to get at, are those I love the best -- the very elect among my favourites."

Review: The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater
The Dream Thieves - Maggie Stiefvater

 

The second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!

 

Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after…

 

 

 

I enjoyed this book much more than the last and I can see why these books get such a hype.

I really started likening the Raven Boys and of course Blue, but I think what I liked most was the friendship that was being build.

There was a lot happening in this book and the I wont say much to not spoil it but I really liked the overall plot and twist that happened.

I really liked the whole Mr. Grey part it was mysterious and fun to follow.

Blue, really came into her own this book and I loved that she just became so much more confident not only in her own skin and family but also around our boys.

The Raven boys. I can’t seem to pick a favorite, they all are unique and fun in their own way.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and looking forward to the next.

I had the paperback and the audio and must say the audio was fantastic to listen to. I absolutely loved it.

I rate this book 4 ★

Book Review for Trapping Wasp by Harley Stone
 
 
 
 
 
Title: Trapping Wasp
Series: The Dead Presidents MC Series #3
Author: Harley Stone
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: August 13, 2018
Reviewed by Angels With Attitude Book Reviews
Arc copy provided for honest review
 
 
 
 
 
 

18+ for language and sexual situations...  Andrew “Wasp” Marshall, VP of the Dead Presidents MC, rides life like it’s his bike, at full speed with no real destination. But when he sets his sights on an irresistible new bartender with a comical little kid, Wasp will have to decide if he’s willing to give up his carefree lifestyle and buckle down to become the man she needs. 
 
Carly Cooper is a survivor. When an old friend turns from protective to possessive she packs up her five-year-old son and flees to Seattle, leaving everything and everyone she knows behind. Carly has neither time nor energy for Wasp’s advances, despite his panty-dropping smile and made-for-sin body. 
 
As things between Wasp and Carly heat up, Carly’s past catches up to her and she must decide whether to trust Wasp and the Dead Presidents, or to pack up and run again.
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying that this was a new author for us and we really enjoyed our first read by them.
I really enjoyed the story and its characters and I have to say what I loved most about the story is that the characters had me laughing through the entire story.For me this was a pretty tame MC romance read that mostly concentrated on the love story added with a bit of mystery.I loved what the club stood for and how they supported ex soldiers.
 
I really enjoyed all the characters but, Trent brought me tons of smiles throughout the entire story and I loved that he was a lot of fun and witty.I also loved that he was such a handful  and that just made him more love-able as you never new what would be coming out of his mouth next.
 
Favorite character for me was Wasp he made me laugh and I loved how he was patient ,kind caring protective and willing to step out of his comfort zone for once to try and win the girl who stole his heart. I love that no matter what from the very beginning he treated Carly and Trent as a package deal and that he loved every minute falling in love with both of them.I also loved that Wasp actually let us get to know the real him and what was beneath that armor of the dark and dangerous playboy.
 
I loved Carly as well as she was easy to love right from the start.Both Carly and Trent suffered from incredible losses but , somehow she found the determination to go on and create a life for herself and her child while always looking over her shoulder for the next tragedy to happen hoping it wasn't her own family.
 
I am looking forward to getting caught up on this series and getting to know more about the other characters and their old ladies.
 
We loved it !
 
Recommend read to all!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Harley Stone writes mafia romance and funny-as-shit romantic fiction. When she's not writing, she's busy living out her real adventure in southwest Washington with her husband and their five boys.

Facts About Me: John Wayne Quotes

I love  movies, and classic westerns. I grew up watching them, because my dad was a big fan, and I learned a lot from them.

I thought I'd share a few of my favourite moments/quotes with you:

.

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.

.

I would like to be remembered, well ... the Mexicans have a phrase, "Feo fuerte y formal". Which means he was ugly, strong and had dignity.

.

Becky! Come here. Somethin' I ought to tell you. Guess now's as good a time as any. You're going to have every young buck west of the Missouri around here tryin' to marry you - mostly because you're a handsome filly, but partly because I own everything in this country from here to there. They'll think you're going to inherit it. Well, you're not. I'm going to leave most of it to, well, to the nation really, for a park where no lumbermen'll cut down all the trees for houses with leaky roofs. Nobody'll kill all the beaver for hats for dudes nor murder the buffalo for robes. What I'm going to give you is a 500 cow spread on the Upper Green River. Now that may not seem like much, but it's more than we had, your mother and I. Some folks are gonna say I'm doin' all this so I can sit up in the hereafter and look down on a park named after me, or that I was disappointed in you - didn't want you to get all that money. But the real reason, Becky, is because I love you, and I want you and some young man to have what I had, because all the gold in the United States Treasury and all the harp music in heaven can't equal what happens between a man and a woman with all that growin' together. I can't explain it any better than that.
