Music Monday - Her Despair

This meme is hosted over at Always Me

Today we are going to dive into a new band that I've found and love! I know they won't be for everyone as they're considered goth but I just had to share anyway.



Favorite Lyrics

In beauty and sorrow
You are my romance
Weeping eternally
Mourning you on Valentines



Favorite Lyrics 

As angels die in agony
For the sins of everyone but me
You sing a song of tragedy
And scream my name as you
Blaspheme with me

Mine to Possess - Review

A Psy/Changeling novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Shards of Hope, Shield of Winter, and Heart of Obsidian..."the alpha author of paranormal romance" (Booklist). A ghost returns from a leopard changeling's past, making him question everything - even his base animal instincts...

Clay Bennett is a powerful DarkRiver sentinel, but he grew up in the slums with his human mother, never knowing his changeling father. As a young boy without the bonds of Pack, he tried to stifle his animal nature. He failed...and committed the most extreme act of violence, killing a man and losing his best friend, Talin, in the bloody aftermath. Everything good in him died the day he was told that she, too, was dead.

Talin McKade barely survived a childhood drenched in bloodshed and terror. Now a new nightmare is stalking her life - the street children she works to protect are disappearing and turning up dead. Determined to keep them safe, she unlocks the darkest secret in her heart, and steels herself to ask the help of the strongest man she knows...

Clay lost Talin once. He will not let her go again, his hunger to possess her is a clawing need born of the leopard within. As they race to save the innocent, Clay and Talin must face the violent truths of their past, or risk losing everything that ever mattered to them.

My Top 6 Favorite Romance Tropes


So if you've been around here for any length of time, you'll know that I love romance. Not just the romance genre but romance in general. I usually love when romance is a subplot because I do need my action to keep me going. Which is one one of my favorite books of all time is A Court of Mist and Fury, romance heavy but it still has another plot going on. 

That being said, I still do read just plain ld romance books too. Sometimes, I just want to sit back and watch the love fly. So today, we are going to be talking about my six favorite romance troupes, in romance books or just romance at all. These aren't really in any order at all, just the ones I love most. So, here we go!

Now I don't usually do a TBR because then the little rebel in me will rebel and I'll read any book but the ones I had planned. I'm weird, I know. It's a problem. But I do have books that I want to read soon if the mood hits me and that's what this list is going to be. In no order whatsoever because I'm also a mood reader... yeah I know, I just keep getting weirder, stick around, it gets worse.

This meme is hosted over at Always Me

Normally, I try to showcase one artist with two of their songs but today that's just not going to happen. We got two different people in two different genres. So let's just get to this! 



Favorite Lyrics: 

"This world can hurt you
It cuts you deep and leaves a scar
Things fall apart, but nothing breaks like a heart
And nothing breaks like a heart."




Favorite Lyrics:

"I don't fear the dark
Show me all your scars
I wanna know who you are
(I wanna know who you are)
I don't fear the dark
Give me all your heart
I wanna know who you are

Show me the skeletons in your closet
Don't wanna play pretend all alone
All of the skeletons, they will haunt us
Let me in, let me in, I want more."

Music Monday - Within Temptation

This meme is hosted over at Always Me.


I don't think I've talked a lot about my love for the band Within Temptation but now let's talk about two of their new singles. I love this first one so much that I've been playing it on repeat for days.




Favorite Lyrics 

"In blood and tears, a thousand times
We rise against, we'll always hold the line of reckoning

We're all alone, walking in twilight
The night has been long and so many have fallen
Feel no remorse, light will be breaking
Our freedom is worth it all."



Favorite Lyrics: 

Wake up
"I'm defying you, seeing right through you once I believed in you
Wake up
Feel what's coming deep within we all know
The way that you torment me
The way that you challenge me
The way that you make me bleed
Blood for freedom."

4 Year Blogiversary



It's been 4 years this month since I started my blog. On one hand, it doesn't feel like it should be that long and on the other, it feels like I've been blogging for longer. It's become such a part of who I am, that sometimes I don't even think about it. I just know I have to blog. 

I've seen the book community go through quite a few ups and downs and right now, I consider us going through a bit of a down but I know we will pull through and be stronger than ever, we always do. 

I have found some amazing reads from my fours years on this book, like one of my all time favorite series, ACOTAR. I've changed the name of this blog from The Book Goddess to The Butterfly Reader. I've made it up to four big bookshelves and two little ones (then sold two whole giant bookshelves and the little ones). I've gone through three jobs since I started this blog and really miss the first one. I wish they'd not have closed it down. 

I've even gone through a horrible life changing experience but my blog has always been here and it's my little piece of the internet where I can escape and say whatever I want, where I can gush and rant about books and talk to you... so that I feel less alone in my love of books. 

Four years... well, here to another four years. I can't wait to see what other books we'll read and get to talk about.

My Bought Virgin Wife - Mini ARC Review





She’s mine…

But will her innocence break all my rules?

I’ve never wanted anything like I want heiress Imogen Fitzalan. I married her to secure my empire—but my untouched wife has ignited an undeniable hunger in me. Desire beyond reason wasn’t my plan, yet now I have a new aim: to strip away her obedience, and replace it with a fierce passion to match my own…

Feel the heat in this intense marriage of convenience romance.






ARC Breakdown

This was almost a perfect little romance novel! So freaking close! If not for the end where he runs off and leaves her alone for a long time.... 

Anyway, Imogen Fitzalan has never fit in, with her family, or the high society that she'd forced into. Now she's being forced to marry a man she doesn't know. A man that had once wanted to marry her older half sister... yeah, sounds crazy right? Well, it's all cute. Javier was actually a really nice guy, I felt so badly for him, growing up the way he did and it makes sense as to why he acts the way he does. It fits him perfectly, even if I did want to shake him and tell him to just open up and not run! 

Overall, it's a sweet little novel that will have you smiling in the end. Thanks to NetGalley for this title in exchange for an honest review.

Never Touched Blitz + Giveaway!



Never Touched
Laney Wylde
Published by: Crimson Tree Publishing
Publication date: November 12th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
What if you woke up from your worst nightmare, only to find the world watching it? On repeat. With relish.


What if those viewers found you? Cornered you until you performed the nightmare live?


Would you run? Fight?


Or charge admittance?

This is Sawyer’s reality. She’s a survivor—gritty and determined—but the struggle to put it all behind her is something that’s with her every second of every day. Her abuser is in jail now, but he’ll never truly let her go. When she tries to shelter in something good, the darkness inevitably follows. The effects of the abuse flow through her life like ripples of pain in this raw, at times darkly comedic, coming-of-age saga that explores what it means to survive the unthinkable—and find the courage to rise up and keep fighting.

Sure to satisfy fans of SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK and 13 REASONS WHY, Never Touched is a New Adult contemporary drama by breakout author Laney Wylde. Richly written with complex characters and a compelling storyline, it’s perfect for fans of Colleen Hoover’s HOPELESS, Rebecca Donovan’s REASON TO BREATHE, and Jessica Sorensen’s THE COINCIDENCE OF CALLIE & KAYDEN.

Please Note: Story contains graphic sexual content, including mentions of abuse. Strong language throughout.

EXCERPT:

He shook his head. “You’re an idiot.”

I pushed his arm off my thighs. “You’re an ass.”

“Yep,” he said with a nod. I pressed my lips together to keep from smiling at the pride he found in his flawed personality. Wrapping his arms around his bent knees, he stared at me, like he was gathering information for his next move. I held my ground—no smiling—though barely. After a long minute, he finally said, “You’re cold.”

I glanced down at my hands, which were a pale shade of violet and reflexively quivering against each other to get warm. My body flinched when Jake took them between his, pressing them together and then making a hollow between his palms. He brought our hands to his lips and exhaled softly into the space between his thumbs, creating a small cave of warmth for my fingers. I swallowed past my suddenly dry throat at the cozy shivers racing up my arms.

Jake’s dark eyes raised to mine, making me suddenly aware of the terror that was probably plain on my face. Parted lips, wide eyes, and my breath that had halted some time ago. Why was he touching me? What did he want from me?

Why did I feel good when he touched me?

It wasn’t supposed to feel good, right? I shouldn’t like the feel of his skin on mine. Men only touched to hurt. I shouldn’t want that.

But when he said, “You might be warmer if we sat together,” I nodded and stood, moving so he could take my chair, so I could curl up in his lap.

Huddling my arms against my chest, I rested my head on his shoulder. My eyes shut cautiously so I could take in the scent of his skin. He wrapped his coat over my back before relaxing his cheek into my hair. I kept my eyes closed, half from fear, half from the desperate need to feel what it was like to just be held.

I had felt nothing like it before.






Author Bio:

Laney Wylde is enamored with all things southern California--the traffic, smog, surprise earthquakes, and nonindigenous palm trees. Consequently, it's the landscape her strong and sometimes lovable female leads paint their stories on. Her New Adult novels Never Touched and the After Twelve series are bright with provocative themes, steamy romance, and inappropriately timed humor.


When Laney isn't writing, she's singing Taylor Swift with her little boy or asking her husband not to tell her about his work as a surgical resident while she's eating. She daydreams about using her math degree to get into law school, then realizes that would be too much work and that she should just play pretend court on paper instead. While she loves a good book, nothing beats 30 Rock with a bag of popcorn and M&Ms.

The Witch's Altar - ARC Review

From prehistoric times to the modern day, the altar has been a pivotal tool for ritual and magick. The Witch's Altar is an in-depth exploration of altars for covens and solo practitioners. From building and maintaining your altar to exploring the use of mobile and hidden altars, this book offers advice, techniques, and fun for Witches of all ages and skill levels.

Learn about the altar's role in history and mythology. Personalize your altar with candles, crystals, sacred tools, magickal objects, statues, pentacles, and symbols. Explore how different altar locations may affect your practice, and discover new ideas for elemental, seasonal, and outdoor altars, as well as altars for the dead. Filled with spells, recipes, and tips, this book provides everything you need to help you create the altar of your magickal dreams.






Mini Book Breakdown 

*ARC received in exchange for an honest review*

So let's say you're getting into witchcraft and how have no idea how to set up an Altar, well, this book is for you! Not only does it go over altars but it also gives a little bit more in depth about altars. Some of the altars in here I'd never even heard of! Like Digital ones, a dashboard alter. Very creative and fitting for those that are more modern in their craft. 

The writing is direct and easy to understand, the authors never once talk down to the reader but always like they just talking to you. I love when authors do that, makes the book read so much better.

If you are looking for a new type of alter, this is also a good book, they talk about Voodoo alters and even their own, which I thought was a great personal touch. So really, this book has just about everything you need to know about alters, even a blessing ritual. I love that these two very different voices were able to make sure a great book, I can't wait to add this to my bookshelf for reference.

The Boss (Volume 1) - Review




"The hot and heavy story of Aria and Zayden. One of best romance books I've read this year." - Extremely Hot Romance Books

My name is Aria and I'm just a normal girl. I go to college and work as a bank teller. My only problem is that my mother has racked up sixty thousand dollars worth of medical bills. She doesn't have a job so any extra money I make goes to her bills. When my boss, Zayden, gives me a proposition that if I agree to be his girlfriend for six months then he'll give me the money for my mom's bills I can't turn him down. The only problem is that he wants me to be more than just his girlfriend. Will I be able to stop his seduction?






Book Breakdown

This is a very short read, I didn't even know how short as I saw it on one of those free kindle book emails I get everyday. It sounded pretty good, I've been reading lots of romance lately. But that cliff hanger had me nearly throwing my kindle into the wall in rage. I don't mind cliff hangers, I'm not that bitchy but this one.... no! You don't just end after THAT. I've come to see that these kind of books are the ones where the beginning is aways free and then the rest of the series is all paid but I'm not going to pay $.99 cents just for more cliff hangers. 

I did enjoy what story I did get, I just kept hoping they'd get together. There are feminist talking points, so if that's something you like or hate, now you know either way. There is also a few minor errors that me rereading like two sentences to figure out what just happened. But it's free and where I used to read fan-faction back in the day, it's not much and shouldn't really be a problem for the reader. 

Overall, I will not be continuing with this series. It just wasn't for me.

Slave to Sensation - Mini Book Breakdown

Nalini Singh dives into a world torn apart by a powerful race with phenomenal powers of the mind-and none of the heart.

In a world that denies emotions, where the ruling Psy punish any sign of desire, Sascha Duncan must conceal the feelings that brand her as flawed. To reveal them would be to sentence herself to the horror of "rehabilitation" - the complete psychic erasure of everything she ever was...

Both human and animal, Lucas Hunter is a changeling hungry for the very sensations the Psy disdain. After centuries of uneasy coexistence, these two races are now on the verge of war over the brutal murders of several changeling women. Lucas is determined to find the Psy killer who butchered his packmate, and Sascha is his ticket into their closely guarded society. But he soon discovers that this ice-cold Psy is very capable of passion - and that the animal in him is fascinated by her. Caught between their conflicting worlds, Lucas and Sascha must remain bound to their identities - or sacrifice everything for a taste of darkest temptation.



Mini Book Breakdown 

Sascha is a Psy, which values being emotionless but Sascha is broken, she feels everything and she's been hiding it for years but things start to tumble out of control when she meets Lucus, a sexy changeling but he's got a reason for trying to seduce our fair Psy and an all out war between their people is one of the biggest. 

I've been trying to find good paranormal (mainly shifter) romances and stumbled upon this, so I gave it a shot, and I loved it! I could not put it down! I read it so fast that I was left feeling sad that is was over. The character development is wonderful, the romance is perfectly sexy and steamy without just being sexy with very little plot. 

Honestly, I hate that I didn't know this series was a thing sooner, now I'm going to play catch up because it's worth it!

Cursed Rebel - Review





Never trust a pretty face. My grandma taught me that. She warned me about the Fair Folk but I never believed her...until I was kidnapped by one. And damn, he is pretty.
But Fin was sent to bring me to his King, and if I want to survive the Otherworld, I have no choice but to trust him - for now.
Oh, and did I mention my sexy best friend is hunting me? I should've listened to Gran.










Mini Book Breakdown 

All her life, Lucy had been told that the Fae her bad, evil and she should stay away from them. All that changes when Fin shows up and kidnaps her, taking her to the land of the Fae...

This is the first thing I've by this author and let me say, it won't be the last. I really liked the world building and the characters. Fin especially was great. I do think it should've been longer, the end just felt off to me. I think expanding on this novel would be amazing, it's pretty short anyway, I read it all in one afternoon. 

I liked the flow of the writing once we got a few chapters in, it was action packed and never boring but the beginning was very rushed, like the author was just wanting to get to all the good parts. My favorite part was the romance, I thought it was well done and I wanted more of them. Honestly, I just wanted more of this story. 

If you have Kindle Unlimited, you can read this book for free!

The Haunting of Hill House - Netflix Review

I've been watching more movies and TV shows lately, because I've been editing my novel and stuck on this novel that I want to finish reading but I'm not enjoying it, I've been pushing myself through it. 

So anyway, since my blog is kind of.... sparse as of late, why not talk about these amazing stories that I've been watching? Plus, it's October, what better for a horror series?

Here we go.... follow me into the Hill House.

Pisces Hooks Taurus Blog Tour + Giveaway

It’s a time for searching, and a time for finding, Pisces: keep casting your line and you will hook what you’re looking for.

Zane has it all planned out: land the perfect Meet Cute, fall in love, and live happily ever after. 
Should be simple enough if he put his mind to it. A little creativity and some thinking outside of the box, and voila, he’d be married to the woman of his dreams.

It would be perfect. 

And it would be before his visa ran out.

Code Wolf - ARC Review (Paranormal Romance)






When Seattle detective and alpha werewolf Derek Miller meets Riley Price, the bond is instant. Feral. Their connection entails enormous risk, for he must keep the existence of his kind secret at all costs. But the forces of darkness have Riley in their sights. Now Derek must choose between the Were code of silence and saving the woman who’s set him on fire.










Mini Book Review 

Riley is your normal woman but one night she's nearly attacked only be saved by Derek. A cop but also an Alpha werewolf. He and a few of his friends keep the streets safe but when he saves Riley.... everything changes, there is something about her that he's drawn to.

I'm in love with Derek. He's a great leading man for sure and Riley is perfect for him! This story kept me flipping pages way past my bedtime, the formatting was a little weird but it's an ARC and I'm sure it will be fixed, so no worries there. 

Overall, this is a great paranormal romance that has lots of action and steam but also some great character development.
