Waiting on Wednesday #144: Vow of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  Vow of Thieves
Author:  Mary E. Pearson 
Expected Publication Date:  August 6th, 2019

Kazi and Jase have survived, stronger and more in love than ever. Their new life now lies before them―the Ballengers will be outlaws no longer, Tor's Watch will be a kingdom, and the two of them will meet all challenges side by side, together at last.

But an ominous warning mars their journey back, and in their rush to return to Tor's Watch, just outside the fortress walls, they are violently attacked and torn apart―and each is thrust into their own new hell.

Unsure whether the other is alive or dead, Kazi and Jase must keep their wits among their greatest enemies and unlikeliest allies. And all the while, Death watches and waits.

I still need to read "Dance of Thieves," but I'm really excited for this book!

So, what upcoming books are you looking forward to?  Please respond below!

One Word: SAD.


* I started rewatching this film again and I love it as much now as I did when I was little! Danielle is such a likable and strong character and she continues to amaze me to this very day!


* So, I finally got the chance to watch the third season of "Stranger Things" and I will admit that I'm not liking the whole "Evil Russians" thing. I just don't like it when a group of people (whether they are Germans, French, Russians, Hispanics, Blacks, Asians, you get the idea) are made the bad guys in most movies or TV shows.  But I do love the character moments between Max and Eleven and the kids in general are just awesome to watch!  Now, I need to finish watching the rest of this season to see how things turn out!

[ARC REVIEW] Don't Drink the Pink by B.C.R. Fegan (@TaleBlade , @bcrfegan )

Title:  Don't Drink the Pink 

Author:  B.C.R. Fegan

Artist:  Lenny Wen

Genre:  Children's / Family / Magic / Fantasy

Year Published: 2019

Year Read:  2019


Source:  eARC (NetGalley)

Content Rating:  Ages 4+ (Nothing Objectionable)

Buy on:  Amazon  //  Book Depository

I would like to thank NetGalley and TaleBlade for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have been enjoying many of TaleBlade’s children’s books and I had just recently read their newest book “Don’t Drink the Pink” by B.C.R Fegan along with artwork by Lenny Wen and it was quite an amazing and emotional book to read!

Every year, Madeline’s grandfather would come and visit Madeline on her birthday and he would give her some special potions.  However, Madeline’s grandfather would always tell Madeline to never drink the pink potion.  Madeline would then start drinking the potions that her grandfather gave her, like drinking the red potion would make Madeline breathe fire or drinking the orange potion would make Madeline control the weather.  But, when the time comes for Madeline to finally drink the pink potion, Madeline will soon discover the true magic of the pink potion that her grandfather gave her.

Wow!  This was seriously one of the most unique children’s books that I had ever read!  B.C.R Fegan did a fantastic job at writing this book as the narrative is told in rhymes and I loved the way that B.C.R Fegan involved both numbers and colors into the narrative.  I also loved the fact that B.C.R Fegan made this story extremely emotional and heartwarming as it is about a young girl spending a lot of time with her grandfather and we get to see how close their relationship is with each other. I related so much with Madeline because she loves her grandfather and her grandfather loves her back and it reminded of all the times where I used to visit my grandparents.  Lenny Wen’s artwork is adorable to look at as all the characters have rounded faces and eyes and I loved how colorful the images were as they captured the innocent and fun nature of this story.

Overall, “Don’t Drink the Pink” is a truly adorable and heartwarming story about the importance of family that both adults and children will enjoy for many years!  I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this story.
