Spotlight Saturday is a weekly feature, created by Josie at Josie’s Book Corner, dedicated to spotlighting and pinpointing some of the things over the week that have caught my attention more than usual, things I’ve particularly loved, etc.
So now that you guys know what it’s all about, how about you join in the fun and hop on over to Josie’s Book Corner and check out how to do so~
This week I want to spotlight a new friend I have made here in the book blogging community. It is Sara from Freadom Library.
Sara is an avid reader of the YA genre like myself and I have found that we have many things in common. Well except one that has come to light very recently. -coughJacobBlackcough-
But I will let that one slide under the rug… Anyway, she has a great blog with well written reviews, fun tags and memes and other interesting posts! She is always one of the first bloggers to comment on my stuff and I always enjoy having mini conversations with her.
So please head on over to her blog and show her some love!
This week I’m bringing you a very interesting discussion post from CW @ Read, Think, Ponder
In her post she talks about how the majority of male love interest all look the same except for some different colored hair. By this, she means they are lean but not too skinny, they are toned, but not too muscular, smooth, pretty light colored eyes, perfect lips and hair etc.
You get the point right? Well head on over to her post and check out what she has to say about it!
Continuing on my re-read of the Falling Kingdoms Series, I am now on book 2!
Rebel Spring by Morgan Rhodes
The road to power… is paved with blood and magic.
Cleo is now a prisoner in her own palace, forced to be an ambassador for Mytica as the evil King Gaius lies to her people.
Magnus stands to eventually inherit the new kingdom but is still obsessed with his feelings for his adopted sister, Lucia.
Lucia is haunted by the outcome of the breathtaking display of magic that allowed her father to capture the kingdoms.
Jonas watched at the palace gates a troop of rebels behind him, waiting for him to tell them how he plans to overtake King Gaius.
After a bloody siege, Auranos has been defeated, its young queen orphaned and dethroned. The three kingdoms—Auranos, Limeros, and Paelsia—are now unwillingly united as one country called Mytica. But the allure of ancient, dangerous magic beckons still, and with it the chance to rule not just Mytica, but the whole world over…
At the heart of the fray are four brave young people grappling for that magic and the power it promises. For Cleo, the magic would enable her to reclaim her royal seat. In Jonas’s hands, it frees his nation, and in Lucia’s, it fulfills the ancient prophecy of her destiny. And if the magic were Magnus’s, he would finally prove his worth in the eyes of his cruel and scheming father, King Gaius, who rules Mytica with a punishing hand.
When Gaius begins to build a road into the Forbidden Mountains to physically link all of Mytica, he sparks a long-smoking fire in the hearts of the people that will forever change the face of this land. For Gaius’s road is paved with blood, and its construction will have cosmic consequences.
Here’s hoping I finish this one soon and get to move on to book three ASAP!
This is the worst week in term of holiday shopping. Most of you in North America will know it’s because of Black Friday. The “one day” a year where everything is on sale before Christmas. (I put one day in quotes because its more like Black Weekend instead).
Now here in Canada it is not as crazy as it is in the States. (Search Black Friday videos on YouTube and see how crazy it gets). But none the less it is still ridiculously busy. Especially when you’re working a 9 hour shift in a shoe store that only has two registers. The lines are crazy. The people are crazier.
Now if I hear another person complain about anything or ask a stupid question, I will have to punch them in the face. “Yes, we only have two registers. No we can’t call the manager up right now. No you can not use your coupons. Yes you can return them, read the damn receipt.”
Time for day two. Please shoot me.

I have two exciting releases to share with you this week. 9Muses has released their sixth EP titled Lost. It’s a pretty solid release with a couple songs that stand out to me! Madtown released their 1st Digital Single titled OMGT (Oh My Gosh Thanks). It’s such an addictive track!
9Muses – Sleepless Nights
I’ve liked 9Muses since their debut 5 years ago. I feel like they are always growing and improving with each new release. My only wish for them to is get more recognition for it. Sleepless Nights is poptronic track with piano influence. Smooth vocals, seductive dancing, and perfect visuals, this song is a 5/5!

Madtown – OMGT
The boys are back! This boy group has a good mix of singers, dancers, and rappers. So it’s no surprise that they have another solid release for my ears to enjoy. Its a hip hop inspired track with hard hitting beats and saxophones breaks. Another 5/5!

Lastly I bring you another quote from Twitter this week!
“Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand. Without them,any happiness is only temporary,because there’s nothing to make it last” – Nicholas Sparks via Books Here@ReadingBookPost
