Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...
So, QUICK NOTE...blog is pretty much shut down at the moment. We were right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and while the family is safe (pups, and parents), the house didn't fair as well. So, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) have to take a back burner. My apologies to any tours or promised review dates...hopefully I'll be able to "reopen" one day, but it's just not in sight as of yet. Here's hoping your reading adventures continue on with no issues! Until we meet again, stay safe, check in from time to time, and happy reading!

The Roving Reader


As soon as I saw this one arrive at the store I thought....I KNOW that cover...why do I know that cover?  Turns out it's the sequel to a book I purchased (umm, last year...ahem) that looked oh-so-bookishly fun (Fly By Night) and well, this one reeks of potential as well.  Opinions anyone?  Have you read the first book by chance?

I LOVE the art cover, the drawing is so... mesmerizing! Isn't it? I haven't read the first part, though, so i will look around for that one first!

The first book was one of my favorites of 7th grade - I'm rather jealous that you have a copy of the sequel. :)

How do you come across books with such amazing covers!? I love the painting on the cover.

Evie: Agreed on all counts. ^_^

SusieBookworm: Oh...hang on...misconception. I don't actually have this one....just saw a copy in store. ^_^ (well, YET that is...hehe)

Misha: Just lucky I guess....LOL. ^_^

O I love it. I want to know more. I think what I like best is her curly hair.

Juju: It is a bit unruly and yet mysterious is it not? ^_^

April: Woo-hoo! *high five* ^_^
