In A Nutshell 
This book was an epic adventure with dark and gory details that left me breathless and anxious to see how the story played out. I read the audio book and it was AMAZING. The narrator did a fantastic job and made me really feel like I was in the middle of all the action. I will warn you this book is not cupcakes and rainbows, but its a story that you wont easily forget, will make you appreciate every happy moment you get to read about, and it will become a new favorite. This book forces you to love it with the beautiful writing, unique and creative twist on the Apocalypse. I HIGHLY recommend it even if darker themed books are not your usual style. If you don't read this book you are going to miss out on a great experience!  
 
 
"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."
 
I was afraid of this book, yes it had amazing reviews and one of the highest goodreads rating I have ever seen but still it sounded so dark and gloomy. And it was dark and gloomy that isn't usually my style, but I feel like this book is so beautifully written with so many twist and turns it forces you to love it. I was shocked by the twists on the Apocalypse this is not what I learned growing up in church, and it left me terrified. I wont lie there were some parts that had me freaked out so much that I didn't want to be left alone. This was dark and to me realistic but it still had me swooning at moments. The romance takes a backset in this book, but it makes you appreciate every last drop of romance you get. Susan Ee did a great job with keeping the mood dark and terrifying but gave still gave the character and readers hope. I loved this book and cannot believe that I wanted so long to read it, but it was a great way to end the year! I do recommend the audio book, this one is one that I feel like everyone would love. The narrator makes you feel all the emotions. It is probably one of the best audio books I have ever listened to.
 
What did you think of Angelfall? Oh and do you guys like the "In a nutshell" part? I thought maybe it would be nice for maybe the readers who want to read my thoughts but are in a hurry.
I hope you guys are having an amazing day!
Happy reading yall

Tea Review: Davids Tea Cold 911

Cold 911 Emergency relief Bad colds require kick butt interventions. Take this tea, for example. It’s a deliciously soothing mix of peppermint, juniper berries and apple. Pretty kick butt, right? If that’s not extreme enough for you, you could try eating raw garlic, or gargling salt water, or inhaling lots of steam. Yeah...we didn’t think so. Probably better just to stick to the tea. With its soothing citrus and mint aroma we can’t guarantee miracle results, but at least we can guarantee it tastes great. (MK Kosher) Ingredients Organic: Peppermint, apple, juniper berries. With natural eucalyptus and orange flavouring*.
So fun fact, while helping six year olds practice their reading you may will get spit on. Another fun fact when they are sick and spit on you, you will get sick and feel like the walking dead. Times like this is why I am so happy that I stocked up on some of Davids Tea . Yup you guessed it after being spit on I was sicker than a dog. I was coughing, running a fever, m…

Top Ten Tuesday: Villains

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

I couldn't decide which type of villain I wanted to write about, so that lead me to do subcategories. I feel like such a rebel!
Villains I Love To Hate 
The Beautiful Pretender I have a review of this book coming soon so I won't say too much, but there is a character I absolutely hate. Most villains have redeeming qualities, but this character had lacked any of those qualities. She loved to hurt others and was completely heartless. 
The Falconer The Villain in this book was completely cut throat, heartless, violent, and everything I love to hate. This Villain did things that ripped my heart out, stomped on it, then put it through a shredder. 
Empire of Storms I have n…
