What I’m Reading Since Saturday I’ve added two books to my currently reading list: Awakened, the 8th book in the House of Night series by PC and Kristin Cast Curse of Magic, the 2nd book in the Fairy Tale Enchantress series by KM Shea Updates Planned This week I’m planning on finishing up Atlantis, and […]
This book started out so promising… Now, it’s not a jaunty archaeological adventure through the city of Atlantis (excuse me, I have a Disney movie to watch). It’s somehow a thriller political novel?

Many of the negative reviews for the novel complain that there are parts that read as though they’re straight from a technical manual, and yes I’ve started to see that. […]
Note: I have decided that while I will update my tumblr blog with more frequent updates (beesandbooks1.tumblr.com) for this blog I will post updates once I have reached quarter marks through the book before posting a final review of its entirety after I have finished. So far, the plot is engaging, but that might have […]
