Hello, lovely fellow readers!! How has 2017 been treating you so far? Well, 2017 has brilliant so far for yours truly! I married the love of my life, and now have been adulating for almost 2 months now and I haven’t yet killed anybody! YAY!! 😛
But what has been going out of control is my TBR pile – I know, I know, when hasn’t that been true. But this time, I am doing something proactive to tackle this pile! Continue reading 2017 TBR Challenge
Do you have any idea how infuriatingly difficult it is to choose your favorite reads from all the book I have read in 2016?? Let me tell you, it definitely is not!

Swallow, Daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them ‘til they’ve time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, ‘til the hour. You won’t speak and you won’t tell, you won’t call on heav’n or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, Daughter. Stay alive.
The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn’t speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would trade his soul and lose his son to the sky.
My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother’s words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free.
But freedom will require escape, and I’m a prisoner of my mother’s curse and my father’s greed. I can’t speak or make a sound, and I can’t wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a bird?
