“Wind-seeker, her mother had once called her. Unable to keep still, always wandering where the wind calls you. Where shall it beckon you to journey one day, my rose?
How far the wind had now called her.”
Guys. This past weekend, I was very prepared to post a book review and my write my Book Tag Tuesday, even though I had to drive to Pensacola for a memorial service. I was so prepared in fact, that I did not even feel the need to bring my laptop >:/ And, of course! I needed it to finalize the post/pictures. So, that did not get done this weekend and then work has already been crazy this week…I know these sound like excuses, but I swear I will tighten up!
But, anyway, I am back for a new review!! Yay! This one is a book that I was not too excited to read, but did so out of loyalty and trust in the author. And of course, Sarah J Maas did not disappoint! Tower of Dawn was an amazing book. It was written so well, the story was captivating, and the ending/plot twists packed a serious punch! There were some things that I did not enjoy, which forces me to give the book 3.5 stars, as opposed to the 5 I would give it otherwise. I feel a bit bad, but I could not overlook the way some things in the book were handled. But, more on that below!
And, duh, spoilers.
I am very sorry that I’ve been AWOL for so long! Things have been crazy, but they are finally settling down. Hopefully Hurricane Maria leaves us alone! For now, I’m back with a tag I read over at The Nameless Book Blog and thought would be pretty fun. So, do I dare?? (Sidenote: that’s also a literary quote tattoo I have. Can you guess from where? 😉 )
I just wanted to explain my lack of activity over the past week. I feel terrible that I have slacked off a little bit, but soon I will be back in a position to update the blog regularly.
I have had some personal family things to deal with and this past week, I have been busy preparing for Hurricane Irma. Living in Tampa, Florida, I am now facing a serious hit from Irma. My family and I have prepared as much as we can, and now we have to wait and see how everything turns out. I am hopeful that we will stay safe and strong during this storm. Scylla and Cake are right by my side and I will protect them at all costs. Keeping them safe, calm, and comfortable is my top priority.
For anyone who is in the path of this storm, please stay safe! I will update again after the storm has passed and will hopefully be able to start posting reviews again soon.
Thank you and keep on reading! I know I will (until that power goes out)!
