A Court of Thorns and Roses News

Okay, Sarah J. Maas fans, great news for those who loved Mass's A Court of Thorns and Roses series! On November 5th A Court of Thorns and Roses collector's edition will be released. The collector's edition looks amazing. It's not often that I get excited about a collector's edition but this one is worth it. Definitely a great addition to a library.

Don't forget to mark your calendars for November 5th or pre-order a copy of the book here.

A Court of Thorns and Roses
by Sarah J. Mass

Feyre's survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price ...

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre's presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

The Girl and the Tiger

Fans of Paule Rosolie have been waiting for the release of The Girl and the Tiger for so long, ever since there was mention of it from Paul Rosolie. Fortunately, this month his second book was finally released! It was released on September 17th, 2019.

I won his first book, Mother of God: An Extraordinary Journey into the Uncharted Tributaries of the Western Amazon, from a GoodReads giveaway. It was one of the best books that I have ever read and I highly recommend reading it if you like biographies and or anything involving the environment. I read the book front to back and never lost interest once. Mother of God went everywhere with me for a while.

The Girl and the Tiger
by Paul Rosolie

Isha is a girl who loves animals, but struggles in the confines of school. When she is sent away to live with her grandparents on the Indian countryside, she discovers a sacred grove where a young Bengal tiger has taken refuge. Isha knows that the ever-shrinking forests of India mean there are few places left for a tiger to hide. When the local villagers also discover the tiger, Isha finds herself embroiled in a life or death cultural controversy.

Isha's crusade to save the tiger becomes the catalyst of an arduous journey of awakening and survival across the changing landscape of modernizing India. Her encounters with tribal people, elephants, and her search for the wild jungle are the source of her revelations about the human relationship to the natural world in a gripping story of determination, discovery, and coming of age.

Dunkin Donuts Logo Donut

Over the past weekend I hopped over to Dunkin Donuts for a quick morning run before starting the day. The line was almost to the door but was moving quickly so I stayed put. While in line I noticed a donut behind the counter that looked like it might be a Halloween themed sprinkle donut. I ordered the donut along with the rest of my order and made my way to the car. Upon opening the bag a realization hit me. That Halloween donut wasn't a Halloween donut. No, it was a chocolate frosting donut with special sprinkles on it. Orange and Pink "D" shaped sprinkles. Was the donut good? Of course, as always!

Is that not cute or what?!? Way to go, Dunkin! ☺

Pillow Talk Is Talking Again

Pillow Talk made it back to the TV screen last night.

The biggest issue I have with Pillow Talk this season is watching Colt and Debbie. Almost makes me want to watch something else... but going to grit throught it and attempt to flip the channel when they're on. Really miss watching Darcey and Stacey but fortunately they are still around on 90 Day Fiance.

Where are Loren and Alexei at? Miss watching them together!

With one episode into the latest season of Pillow Talk so far it felt a little lacking but most likely due to the adjustment in the cast when you're used to seeing certain people. Looking forward to the next episode... hopefully Loren and Alexei will appear!
