My Rating:

What’s the point in solving murders if we’re all going to die soon, anyway?

Detective Hank Palace has faced this question ever since asteroid 2011GV1 hovered into view. There’s no chance left. No hope. Just six precious months until impact.

My May To Read Pile

I’ve not done a post on my to read list for the last few months and I’ve really not been doing that great keeping up. So, I decided I’d do it again to see if I can somehow get back up to speed on all my reads.

Here’s what I hope to be able to read this month. I’ve started a good amount of these and am enjoying them so far. I’d love to get all of May read and get a good start on June books.


There are a lot of books I’m really looking forward to in that pile-though I must admit knowing I need to read them makes it a tad more stressful. I’m reading The Lovely and the Lost by Page Morgan with my wonderful friend Kelly from Effortlessly Reading. We plan on starting Hungry by H.A Swain afterward. I have a good start on The Last Policeman by Ben Winters and began A World Without Princes by Soman Chainani and The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead over last weekend. I think I might be the most excited about Take Back the Skies by Lucy Saxon since I’ve been hearing some fun buzz about it.

Upcoming Reviews:

 My Last KissThe Beautiful and the Cursed (The Dispossessed, #1)Stolen Songbird (The Malediction Trilogy, #1)

I plan on posting reviews for My Last Kiss by Bethany Neal, The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan, Stolen Songbird by Danielle Jensen all within the next week or so. Spoiler- I enjoyed them all. Of course, there will be other reviews for the remainder of May as well but these are the ones I’ve started.

Upcoming Lego Cover Art:
We are running so behind on the Lego cover art. We have pictures taken but have stalled out on the digital artwork due to life being busy. We are working on The Kiss of Deception by Mary Pearson now and will embark upon Heir of Fire by Sarah J Maas next. I look forward to sharing both! Hopefully sooner than later.

Hopefully I can read like the wind and make a dent in my to read pile for this month. What are you reading right now?

Stacking the Shelves

I can’t believe that March is almost behind us. Time is moving too fast. Watson is doing well, he is getting the hang of his crate training and has learned how to sit. Now if I can get him to be potty trained.

Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga’s Reviews is a weekly meme where you show what books you’ve purchased, gotten from the library, received from giveaway, as gifts or for review. So excited about this book haul:
