Welcome to another round of SHAME where I talk to you about all the popular series I haven’t read (yet) and you get to throw sticks and stones (and whatever else you may find) at me!
I have already done a part 1 of this which you can find here! As you can see, I have read the ACOTAR series so at least I crossed one series off that list! Woo!
This time, I’ve decided to look at series that I actually own and see which ones I still need to read!
Let’s just get right into the series because this will be shameful enough *runs*

“Her vengeance. His vision.
Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.
Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.
When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.
He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.“

At the beginning of this year and when I’ve only just started blogging, I participated in the Spring Bloggiesta! It was sooooo much fun and I felt a great sense of accomplishment afterwards so I thought I’d participate again!
“Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon revolving around ticking off those items on your to-do list and improving your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing.”
This time, it’s just a little Mini-Bloggiesta that takes place over the weekend (June 17-18) instead of the entire week! Still, I have no plans for this weekend and therefore I’m hoping to accomplish a lot of things blog-related!
So, all you gotta do is write your very own to-do list and post it to your blog. It doesn’t matter how long or short it is, it’s your blog after all!
My Summer Mini-Bloggiesta goals:
- participate in the Twitter chat (Saturday June 17, 2pm EST)
- pre-write 2 discussion posts
- write Loom review
- write One S’More Summer review
- sort Review Archive by author/name/rating
- maybe get some dividers???? I DON’T KNOW YET
I think that’s it for now! I’ll only have the weekend after all and I also want to get some reading done!
If you want to participate in the Summer mini-Bloggiesta as well, head over to Bloggiesta.com for the official rules and to get inspiration for your own To-Do list! You can sign-up for it HERE!
Happy Bloggiesta and good luck on getting things done!
Thank you for reading!
Will you be participating in the Summer Mini-Bloggiesta? What is on your own To-Do list? Do you have any future plans for your blog? Let’s chat in the comments!
“”Romantic and unforgettable.” –Nicholas Sparks
A romantic, vivid novel that takes place in the tender time of a young woman’s life:
Heather has graduated from college and is traveling around Europe with her two best friends. She’s left school responsibility behind and adult responsibility is looming, but this is her one, ONE last summer to be free.
Heather doesn’t expect to even meet Jack, let alone fall in love with him. Jack is an enigmatic Vermonter a few years older than she is, who is following his grandfather’s journal to various cities around Europe.
But in the same way that forces are bringing Jack and Heather together, life and duty are pushing them apart. And Jack has a secret that is going to change absolutely everything.”

“It’s been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back. Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.
Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.
Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.”

“In a breathtakingly vivid and emotionally gripping debut novel, one woman must confront the emptiness in the universe—and in her own heart—when a devastating virus reduces most of humanity to dust and memories.
All Jamie Allenby ever wanted was space. Even though she wasn’t forced to emigrate from Earth, she willingly left the overpopulated, claustrophobic planet. And when a long relationship devolved into silence and suffocating sadness, she found work on a frontier world on the edges of civilization. Then the virus hit…
Now Jamie finds herself dreadfully alone, with all that’s left of the dead. Until a garbled message from Earth gives her hope that someone from her past might still be alive.
Soon Jamie finds other survivors, and their ragtag group will travel through the vast reaches of space, drawn to the promise of a new beginning on Earth. But their dream will pit them against those desperately clinging to the old ways. And Jamie’s own journey home will help her close the distance between who she has become and who she is meant to be…”
