Top 10 Tuesday – Under-the-Radar Books

Hey hey, it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is run by The Broke and the Bookish, and I’ve been participating since the beginning of July or so – I’m happy that it’s becoming a regular weekly post on this here blog.

(Belated) ARC Review – Sovereign by April Daniels

Oh my goodness, I was so excited to get approved for this book. I LOVED the first book in the series, Dreadnought, and just couldn’t wait to get to this one.

I don’t know, I’ve had Sovereign sitting on my Kindle for months, and I didn’t want it to end. But I’m so glad I finally read the book, because it was SO GOOD, just what I had hoped for and more.

There will be spoilers for Dreadnought in this review. You can read my review for that here.Read More »
