Booktube-A-Thon July 2016: Day 3

Day 3 …. oh, dear Day 3. A sad reading day for me, lol. I had a long day at work, and although I left work early, I didn’t get home until an hour after I usually do, because of traffic. It was worse today than usual because I work near a stadium in a major city, and there was a day game… so… game traffic… woo-hoo… So needless to say when I got home I crashed on the couch. My boyfriend got home about the same time as I…

Stacking the Shelves: April 2016

I am starting my very own original series here on The Daily Waltz, called Stacking the Shelves! This will be a monthly post to let you know what is coming up for the next month. I wasn’t satisfied doing just the Bookshelf Update series, which is a retroactive series of recaps each month. If I do a proactive post each month it will help us with all the exciting Read-A-Thons happening in 2016 that we have to plan for!! 🙂 The TBR List just helps me organize what I’m reading this month, and what…

Bookshelf Update: January 2016

Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power. Fearful of…
