Review: Talon by Julie Kagawa

Talon (Talon #1)
Author: Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: October 28, 2014
Pages: 449
Format: Hardcover/Own

THE DRAGONS OF TALON: Once hunted nearly to extinction, they are now poised to take over the world.

THE ORDER OF ST. GEORGE: The legendary dragonslayers will stop at nothing to wipe dragons from the face of the earth.

These mortal enemies are locked in secret and deadly combat, with humanity none the wiser.


To take her rightful place in the Talon organization, young dragon Ember Hill must prove she can hide her true nature and blend in with humans. Her delight at the prospect of a summer of "normal" teen experiences is short-lived, however, once she discovers that she's also expected to train for her destined career in Talon. But a chance meeting with a rogue dragon will soon challenge everything Ember has been taught.

As Ember struggles to accept her future, St. George soldier Garret Xavier Sebastian is tasked with hunting her down. But when faced with Ember's bravery, confidence and all-too-human desires, Garret begins to question everything the Order has ingrained in him—and what he might be willing to give up to uncover the truth about dragons.


Review: Stalking Jack The Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Stalking Jack The Ripper (Stalking Jack The Ripper #1)
Author: Kerri Maniscalco
Publisher: Jimmy Patterson
Publication Date: September 20, 2016
Pages: 318
Format: Paperback/Own

Presented by James Patterson's new children's imprint, this deliciously creepy horror novel has a storyline inspired by the Ripper murders and an unexpected, blood-chilling conclusion...

Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord's daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.

Against her stern father's wishes and society's expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle's laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

The story's shocking twists and turns, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this dazzling, #1 New York Times bestselling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.


Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Blogs/Booktubers

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Topic: 
Favorite Book Blogs/Bookish Websites

So for this one I'm gonna split this between my favorite Book Bloggers and Booktubers. Now don't get up in arms. I love a lot more people than just on this list! In fact, I keep a constant roll of book bloggers I love on my sidebar. I also follow a lot more booktubers than this. These are all just some of my faves! 

Book Blogs:

1. AJ @ Read All The Things! - AJ is such a great person. She's definitely one of the more active bloggers I see. I see her comment on so much including a lot of my own stuff. Much love for that! But she also posts some amazing content on her own blog and one of my all time favorite blog posts to date happens to be her A Brief List of Oddities Discovered In My Email post!

2. Angelica @ Paperback Princess - We have very similar tastes in books. I love how sometimes we end up getting the same books the same week as well. And I don't mean new releases. I mean older books as well. Like this past week we both bought Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows. It's kinda funny to see a blogger on the other side of the world so similar to me. We both also have toddlers and often have conversations about them. Lol.

The Raging Ones (The Raging Ones #1) 
Authors: Krista & Becca Ritchie
Publisher: Wednesday Books
Publication Date: August 14, 2018

From New York Times bestselling authors Krista and Becca Ritchie, comes The Raging Ones, an edge of your seat sci-fi romance with twists and turns that you will never see coming!

In a freezing world, where everyone knows the day they will die, three teens break all odds.

Franny Bluecastle, a tough city teen, dreams of dying in opulence, to see wealth she’s never known. Like the entire world, she believes it’s impossible to dodge a deathday.

Until the day she does.

Court Icecastle knows wealth. He also knows pain. Spending five years in Vorkter Prison, a fortress of ice and suffering, he dreams of life beyond the people that haunt him and the world that imprisoned him.

Mykal Kickfall fights for those he loves. The rugged Hinterlander shares a frustrating yet unbreakable connection with Court—which only grows more lawless and chaotic as their senses and emotions connect with Franny.

With the threat of people learning they’ve dodged their deathdays, they must flee their planet to survive. But to do so, all three will have to hide their shared bond as they vie for a highly sought after spot in the newest mission to space. Against thousands of people far smarter, who’ll live longer, and never fear death the way that they do.
