Cinder tilted her chin up, fixing her gaze on the man. Beside her, Wolf lowered himself into a fighting position, his fingers curled and ready, all at Cinder's urging. For the first time, she felt a spike of new emotion from him. Hatred, she thought. For her.
She ignored it.

  2. She sounds ready to do battle. I've been wanting to read this.
    I hope you had a great vacation. I'm just back from a short one myself. Hard to get back into the groove of things. Welcome back!

  3. Okay, so how is this book? I've been wanting to know from "like" minded readers (which I consider you to be). Shall I just wait for your review? ;)

  4. I know how that is. Now that the whole family comes with us on vacation, I don't read diddly squat.

  6. I did the same thing last week. Had all of these high expectations to read while I was on vacation, but then time got away from me and I ended up reading the same book for nearly two weeks.

    I'm interested in this series. I recently bought Cinder, so hopefully I can get to it soon.

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. I'm on vacation right now, too. I brought four books with me and two audiobooks. So far I've finished one book and will finish the second today. Not as much reading time as I anticipated!

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

REVIEW: Inside the prize pack my family received, was some super cool experiments to try. Here is a snap of our Levitation adventures;


It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
