Cover Reveal – Worth the Risk

Hello, my wonderlandians. It is Thursday! Today I have a book reveal for you! Thank you to Xpresso Tours for letting me be apart of this.


Worth the Risk
J.B. Heller
Publication date: January 4th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

It was meant to be a one-time thing. One night they could let go of the restrictive chains their everyday lives bound them in.

When a new client file turns out to belong to the woman Abe slept with three months ago, he does something he has never done before. He goes against company policy, one he created, and places himself on the case as her full-time bodyguard.

It’s not bad enough her father’s political aspirations have landed Kalista in hot water, she’s about to have a twenty-four/seven shadow too. Far from happy about the added protection, she hates the idea of constantly being watched. But then she meets her new bodyguard.

Now that Abe has Kalista so close again he knows he wants to keep her in his life. When the threats against her escalate, he’s forced to act. But will his new-found attachment to Kalista make him a liability or their greatest asset?

Cover Reveal – Night Shift

Hello, my wonderlandians! Hope you Tuesday is going good. How was your Christmas? Did you get everything you wanted for Christmas?



Night Shift
Carey Decevito
(Nightshade, #2)
Publication date: January 9th 2018
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

A serial killer…

A past that haunts no matter how much the distance…

Which one will strike first?

Eighteen deaths over eight years has left Shane Peters itching to find his mark. The death that started it all ensured his obsession with the murderer who had turned his life into a living hell, leaving him to raise a newborn daughter on his own.

Starting over wasn’t the easiest thing, but Emberlyn Roth had managed by shear grit and the skin of her teeth. It’s too bad one can’t outrun their past.

A protector of the wronged, Shane is torn between his duty as a detective for the Jacksonville PD and a quest to find himself some peace. Red tape binds his capabilities and moonlighting as an investigator for Nightshade Securities has him feeling stretched thin. Late nights on the streets and his sense of duty keeps him from being the father he wants to be. Throw onto his already rickety house of cards, an attraction to the mysterious Emberlyn, the lead he’s got on the murderer he’s been hunting for nearly a decade, and threats his woman is receiving by an unsavory character from her past, and he’s seriously tempted to take Dalton Kipper’s offer to join his team in a permanent basis.

Rules have a place, but when you’re faced with losing the one that means most to you, lines can become blurred. With the fate of his family’s future hanging in the balance, he’s ready to risk it all.

  6. Go home and sleep because Christmas is going to be BUSY! I have three house to get to in like a 12 hour span of time.

http_mashable.comwp-contentuploads201306Harry-Potter1

Today I wanted to give you an update about how my Jan Jam Jar reading challenge is coming together. If you guys want to know that the Jan Jam Jar challenge is please click here.

So I am putting together my jar for this challenge and I have 10 books far. I think I might be adding more. I know for a fact that in the first month of the year I usually read about 10 or more books. So I really want to aim high next year to really knocking all the books from my TBR.

I have decided that I will be posting updates on Sundays. Then the last day of the month is on a Wednesday and I will be making an extra post on that to wrap up the month.

Well this is all I have for you today. Have a happy and safe day.

Thank you for taking a break from your holiday fun and joining me here in our Wonderland. Fun fact did you guys know that it is actually unicorns that fly Santa sleigh? No, because that really wanted to keep their existence away from us humans. So if you feed them a treat they will grant you a wish, but they will also take you up for a ride.

Until next time

Much love

Free Friday

Hello, my wonderlandians! It is Friday!Which means the weekend and the start of the holidays.

So you guys today is Free Friday. There is a book that i want to talk about. I read it earlier this year and I love it. It is another mermaid book.

11700785

She wanted her life to change… he wanted his to stay the same.

Best friends share everything with each other. Or do they? Seventeen-year-old Ashlyn Frances Lanski is tired of her boring, single life. Spending time with her best friend Tatiana, dreaming about kissing Tatiana’s twin brother Fin, and swimming competitively are her only sanctuary. The girls plan to leave their drab lakeside town far behind for college. But when Tatchi fails to return home after a family emergency, and no one knows where the family has gone, Ash chooses to do something drastic to find them.

Ashlyn is about to discover what she’d thought to be true her whole life, wasn’t, and the truth, too fantastical to imagine. Secrets lurk beneath the deep blue waters of Lake Tahoe, secrets that will change Ashlyn’s life forever.

I love this book and the best part of it its that it is free. Now I have both read and listened to this book. So I highly recommend this book.

Funny enough I have read this book about 4 times over the last four years. While I have listened to. I love the audiobook. One of the narrators is Grace Grant. She is one of my all-time favorite narrators. Sadly, for whatever reason, I do not own this audiobook.

My reaction when reading this book.

What I’m Reading Wednesday

Hello, my wonderlandians. I hope you are having a great Wednesday. I am off today so I did not wake up until 1 pm. I have been very tired lately. So the sleep in was nice. In a couple of hours, I’m getting ready to go to my mom’s house to go pick up my box of ornaments so my boyfriend and I can put up our Christmas tree. I know it’s the 20th of December and still no Christmas tree…

giphy (3)

Today though we are here for another What I’m Reading Wednesday.

I am currently listening to a book called The Ninth Key. It is the second book in the Mediator series by Meg Cabot.

199786

Synopsis

Ghosts ruin everything. Especially your love life.

Everything is going great for Suze. Her new life in California is a whirlwind of parties and excellent hair days. Tad Beaumont, the hottest boy in town, has even asked Suze out on her very first date. Suze is so excited that she’s willing to ignore her misgivings about Tad… particularly the fact that he’s not Jesse, whose ghostly status – not to mention apparent disinterest in her – make him unattainable.

What Suze can’t ignore, however, is the ghost of a murdered woman whose death seems directly connected to dark secrets hidden in none other than Tad Beaumont’s past.

(After reading these books. I want to go watch the show Ghost Whisperer.) 

This book is actually going to be a reread for me I read it back when I was in high school and I recently just finished the 8th book in the series so what I wanted to do was go back and reread the entirety of the series. Unfortunately, I do not have books 1 and 2 I do have 3 through 7. So I thought I would get the audiobooks this time around and listen to them.

I thought this would be a nice way to kind of end the year. I love this book series I love the world but it takes me in to. Overall, I love the main characters, Susanna Simon. I honestly feel like when I was back in high school she felt like that friend that didn’t really give a crap. It was nice because my overall High School experience wasn’t the best. So I was able to escape into this world where I felt like I had a friend that took up for you and really didn’t take crap from anybody. And then, of course, you know you have the hot love interest. There were also times when I would put myself in Suze’s Shoes just because I wanted to cry and go see you like I was somebody else for a while. This is on a day where I was having a particularly bad day with my mental health and I just needed to escape. So this is my reading Wednesday.

As always thank you guys so much for coming here and joining me and our little part of Wonderland. On your way out do not forget to feed the unicorns. We are 5 days away from Christmas so they are definitely in the mood for granting all over the wishes.

Until next time

Much love

Cover Reveal – Don’t Rush Me

Hello, my wonderlandians! I have for you today another cover reveal for you today brought to us by Xpresso Tours. So thank you guys once again. This is one book I will be adding to my TBR pile.



Don’t Rush Me
Jackie May
Publication date: January 25th 2018
Genres: Adult, Urban Fantasy

Most humans have no idea that a dark and deadly underworld, filled with magic and monsters, exists. They wander through life blissfully ignorant of the supernatural world around them. Nora Jacobs is different. Nora knows exactly what kinds of hellish creatures haunt the streets of Detroit.

Thanks to a unique set of psychic abilities, Nora has managed to steer clear of the underworld most of her life. But all that changes the night the most powerful vampire in the city discovers her gifts and decides to use her as a tool to find one of his missing clan members.

As if that’s not bad enough, Nora believes she’s cursed. All her life, people, especially men, have been drawn to her—some to the point of obsession and violence. Underworlders, it seems, are not immune to this curse, and now she’s caught the attention of some of the most dangerous monsters in the city.

Neck deep in an investigation only she can solve, Nora quickly makes as many new allies as she does enemies. Her biggest problem is staying alive long enough to decide which is which.

Bea realizes the missing piece to her happiness is the love of her best friend and secret crush, Al Bosco. After years of dancing around one another, Bea sets up a date with the town vet to make Al jealous enough to claim her. However, Bea’s plan backfires and leaves her alone in Oaks with nothing but one fake boyfriend, one broken heart and one wedding dress to design.

As he finally breaks down and returns to his hometown to make things right so he can give Bea everything she deserves; she walks in holding hands with the town vet and looking happier than ever. Al may have a bruised ego but he’s on a mission to win Beatrice’s love once and for all. When he finally returns to Oaks, will his girl still have a heart to give to him or will Al be left with nothing but regret?
