In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries.
No one resents the Gerlings more than Jules Ember. A decade ago, she and her father were servants at Everless, the Gerlings’ palatial estate, until a fateful accident forced them to flee in the dead of night. When Jules discovers that her father is dying, she knows that she must return to Everless to earn more time for him before she loses him forever.
But going back to Everless brings more danger—and temptation—than Jules could have ever imagined. Soon she’s caught in a tangle of violent secrets and finds her heart torn between two people she thought she’d never see again. Her decisions have the power to change her fate—and the fate of time itself.

Hey guys! I am excited to announce that I am now a Book of the Month affiliate. I will start doing a monthly haul to share my book selections. I will continue to attempt to read at least one BOTM selection, whether the current one or one from a past month.
November is a very busy month for new releases, as everyone can attest. Especially November 5th. Due to that, I chose to have two books in my BOTM box.
1. The Great Pretender: The Undercover Mission That Changed Our Understanding of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
Surprisingly, I have already read this book. This is a narrative nonfiction surrounding the famous study of David Rosenhan’s titled “On Being Sane in Insane Places.” Published in 1973, it had an essential impact on the changes we made to treat mental illness. While it moved the psychiatric system away from the problem of asylums, it led to the current problem we have of the lack of psychiatric beds to treat individuals.
2. The Guinevere Deception by Kiersten White
This book, written by Kiersten White, is a new young adult fantasy series surrounding the legend of King Arthur. For more information, including a synopsis, check out it’s Goodreads page here.
What books did you get in your November Box. Don’t forget, I am an affiliate and you can get your first book for only $5. Check out my referral link here.
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet as I am already behind in posting it. As you can see, October was not the best reading month for me. I am only 7 books away from my Goodreads reading challenge of 75 books for the year so I am hoping to reach my goal by the end of November.

A very late November TBR coming your way. To be honest, I have no clue why I take the time to make a TBR list when I never follow it. I am such a mood reader. I take too much time deciding which my next read should be. This list was compiled keeping in mind the reading goals I had made earlier in the year.
It’s Mid-October which means there are only two and a half months left until 2020! Today, I’m going to share which 5 books I am most excited to read before the new year.
* Books are in no particular order
1. The Bane Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, and Maureen Johnson
I have 4 Shadowhunter books that I need to read in order to catch up.
- The Bane Chronicles
- Ghosts of the Shadow Market
- Red Scrolls of Magic
- Queen of Air and Darkness
