HI GUYS! So since becoming a mama it’s definitely easier to write a blog post than to film and edit a video SO that’s what I’m going to be trying to do.
SO FOR TODAY! I have a book spotlight for The Chronicle of the Three Trilogy by Tabitha Caplinger! I have the pleasure of calling Tabitha my friend and I absolutely adore her. I was so excited I got to help out for this blog tour!
I’m also lucky enough to have read the full trilogy prior to the release of the third book, The Chronicle of the Three: Eden Sword, which releases May 1st of this year!
Demons are real even if you can’t see them. But what if you could?
Zoe thought the loss of her parents would be the most difficult thing she’d ever have to endure. When she began seeing things she couldn’t explain in her new home of Torchcreek, Virginia, she was sure the grief was driving her mad. Instead Zoe discovers she is part of an ancient bloodline, one destined to defeat the powers of darkness from condemning the world. But Zoe, the daughter of the three, isn’t just another descendant–she’s the key to humanity’s salvation.
These books are SUPER fast reads and have such a realistic feel to them. If you’re a fan of Supernatural, Buffy, & Gilmore Girls… then this is the book trilogy for you.
Coming up on April 28th is the #TCO3FlashFix Readathon to catch up on the first two books before the release of Eden Sword! Make sure you follow Tabitha on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram for all the fun. I’ll link all her social media at the end of the post. I may even be going live with her as a pump up session before the readathon!

So I recently had the privilege of reading an advanced copy of The Crimson Gate by Whitney Miller! I met her last year at one of the signings I went to and really adored her. I was excited to finally read her book The Violet Hour and it’s sequel The Crimson Gate. I decided to do a video review of both and I posted it this past Saturday! If you haven’t had the chance to watch it, do it! I was really excited that the author loved it so much and has been sharing it like crazy on twitter!
If you haven’t already, follow me on twitter! Alyjoshaver
ALSO! I had one of my really good friends make me an intro to my videos! YOU HAVE TO SEE IT! I adore it! 🙂
Enjoy! Sorry if I scare you! Haha!!! Please like and subscribe! I’ll love you forever!
So February is coming to an end and I figured I would recap my reads from this month! I read a total of 7 books this month which is pretty good. Especially since I started a new job this month and I’m a full time student. I am only one book behind on my Goodreads challenge which is confusing because at 1am this morning I was on track…? Anyway here is what I read this month!
1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
2. Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas
3. Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas
4. The Violet Hour by Whitney Miller
5. The Crimson Gate by Whitney Miller
6. The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
7. Switched by Amanda Hocking
I was really pleased with all my book choices this month! I’m continuing the Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking right now and then I plan on finishing the Maze Runner books after. Then I have a 14 book series called The Wheel of Time that a friend loaned me that I plan on trucking through.
What about you guys? How was your February reading?
Well November has come to an end and I hope everyone had a lovely holiday! I will be blogging a bit more in the coming weeks because finals will be over after next week, thank goodness! Because of the craziness with school I haven’t been writing or reading much.
I recently finished The Retribution of Mara Dyer which was the final book in the Mara Dyer series and it was AMAZING! The ending was so perfect, props to Michelle Hodkin on that one. I’m currently reading Waterfall by Lauren Kate which is the sequel to Teardrop. She is also well-known for her series Fallen, which is so good!
I am very behind on my Goodreads goal which is 75 books this year which I’m only at 53. I hope to get closer once I’m done with finals. Any recommendations? I have a mile long list of TBR’s but I’m always looking to add more!
Though I haven’t been reading as much I have been gaming quite a bit. My wonderful future hubby bought me an Xbox One recently so we can game together. I got the Sunset Overdrive special edition Xbox One which of course came with Sunset Overdrive.
This is our current set up, mine is on the left and his is on the right. So far I have Destiny, Sunset Overdrive, and Assassins Creed Unity. I really want to get the Master Chief Collection as I haven’t played Halo 2 since I was in high school! And there’s no beating some good old Matchmaking!!!
Any other readers out there that love gaming too?
Thank you for those of you who still read my blog even though I’m not super active as of late! I promise I will post more frequently in the coming weeks!
Okie Dokie! So I’ve been in a bit of a reading funk… mainly due to going back to school. I’m doing relatively well in my classes so YAY! But since I’ve been so busy I haven’t touched either of my WIPs since before classes started. However even though I’m on the fence with the whole NaNoWriMo thing, I think I might sign up and try to do it in hopes for motivation.
In the new Westerfeld book his main character Darcy essentially does NaNoWriMo and cranks out a book. I think it inspired me a little to try to do the same thing even though I doubt I can sit down every day and manage to write. November is one of the craziest times of year for me because of family gatherings so it will be interesting to see what happens.
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo? or thinking of it?
Here is the link to NANOWRIMO if you’re interested in more info! Like I said I’m on the fence and still deciding if I will even sign up.
On the fangirl side of things, it’s almost Halloween!!!! I’ve got my costume ready and already had a party I attended in it. My fiance and I decided to do a couples costume since we’ve never really found a couple we wanted to dress as until now!
I don’t have a picture with him but I do have pictures of my trial run…
For those of you who don’t know what I look like this my before!
Here’s my after! I also am in the midst of making a giant mallet . I don’t have my hair colored obviously for my trial but I will have it lighter with the red and black tips. My fiance is obviously going to be dressed as my puddin’, the one and only Mistah J 😉 If you still don’t know who I’m talking about… GO WATCH BATMAN THE ANIMATED SERIES LIKE NOW and if you do, High-five to you sir or madame! So far I’ve been told I pull of crazy really well… which I’m not sure is a good thing necessarily haha! Anyone else big into Halloween?
