Thick As Thieves Is Here!!

When I wrote my last blog post, I had no idea that I was missing the best book of the summer! I fell in love with The Queen's Thief series five or six years ago, and I had no idea how long I would have to wait for the next book in the series.

One of the things I love best about this series is its fans. The books are awesome because of the unexpected twists and turns. Knowing what happens would destroy that, so there is a pact of silence among us. Although I am sure there are many spoilers out there on the internet, you won't get them from us!

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have.

And now, with a drumroll please...
Book 5!

It is sitting in my reading basket, and I'm just waiting for the right time to let myself get transported back to Attolia. Or Sounis. Or Eddis. As the case may be. 😄

Summer Reading List 2017

Hi! It's been SUCH a long time since I posted. I'd had dreams of starting to post again with the A-Z challenge, but it is already April 21, so I missed that boat for sure.

I'm going to keep this post as simple as I can. I can usually spend HOURS on To Be Read lists, and I don't want to burn myself out on my first post back. That means no links, and no book descriptions, at least on this first day. Instead, let me tell you a little bit about what you might find in this list.

This is a purely YA list. I've taken a break from YA lately, and read Middle Grade, and even some adult (gasp!). But I'm starting to miss it, so I've compiled a list of YA--hopefully mostly sweet YA. The list appears to be a pretty solid mix of contemporary, fantasy and speculative. Enjoy!
