It’s #HP December, which means it is time to celebrate all things Potter. This year, I’ve chosen to re-read the Harry Potter books, but I also think that I might watch a few of the films–however you choose to celebrate, be sure to share with others on social media by tagging it at #HPDec. And, feel free to comment below so I can check out what you’re doing! Be sure to leave your website address or post so I can leave you some comments,

Furiously Happy _ AlwaysReidingI enjoy Jenny Lawson’s site, the Bloggess. And, when I heard she was coming out with a second book, I knew that I needed to get my hands on it as soon as possible. However, due to some unforseen reading circumstances, it didn’t happen as soon as I had hoped. But luckily, I was prepared for it (along with my bladder). I even read passages out loud to my husband,

The Royal We _ AlwaysReidingI blame SBTB for introducing me to this book, and especially the SALE of this book, so that I could enjoy it. And, while I am not traditionally a romance reader, I was able to find this, a diamond in the rough, and enjoy the heck out of this book!

Bex is a twin, who leaves America for a year to attend university in England. And happens to share a dorm with the next leader of England,

Armada_AlwaysReidingI love pop culture, that’s no secret. And when I heard about Ernest Cline’s newest novel, Armada, I decided I had to read it–and I was sure to preorder it for when it came out on July 14, 2015. However, due to book circumstances beyond my control (mostly fighting with myself about the idea of what I should be reading, versus what I wanted to read), I didn’t start this until this week.

Fooling Around With Cinderella

I have made no secret that I enjoy fairy tales. Because of this,  I am always on the lookout for awesome stories that may take fairy tale themes and update them. I jumped at the chance to read Stacy Juba’s Fooling Around with Cinderella. Thanks to Tasty Book Tours for giving me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

Jaine is unemployed,

Always Reiding Doctor Who Big Bang GenerationI am a fan of Doctor Who, and Peter Capaldi’s version of the Time Lord is as stunning in the book series as he is on the television screen. So, when offered, I jumped at the chance to read this, thank you to Broadway Books for offering me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

When a time portal opens up in Australia, a massive pyramid spills out into 2015.

AlwaysReiding_DreamSchooAs a fan of Blake Nelson’s Girl, I was really excited (and a little mystified) when I heard there was a sequel. For fans of the original novel, the idea that a beloved character could be back is both exciting and scary–what if the novel doesn’t live up to the expectations of the first? Yes, it is classic ‘sequel’ syndrome. However, Dream School alleviates this by focusing on the things that make us love heroine Andrea Marr in the first place–her voice.

HPDec_HarryPotter_AlwaysReiding It’s an awesome thing to be able to celebrate #HPDec, and it is the first time I am officially participating in #HPDec as well.
I picked up all of the new covers by Kazu Kibuishi, and I have more about that story later… But these books are such an amazing thing. I discovered them shortly after they came to the US (’98-’99 ish), due to an awesome literature class in college,

AlwaysReiding - Revival by Stephen KingI am always in the mood for Stephen King. Something about his writing style can drag me in and then keep me up! His newer books have been different, and yet similar in the way they make me feel. And Revival did not disappoint in either arena.

Jamie Morton is just a boy when a new minister, Reverend Charles Jacobs, and his young family come to lead their local church.
