Waiting on Wednesday #186: Broken Souls by Toni Miranda Jones and Broken Wish by Julie C. Dao



 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" selections are:


Broken Souls

By: Toni Miranda Jones

Expected Publication Date: October 5th, 2020

Buy on:   Amazon

Would you disrupt the balance of the universe to avenge your family?

Colette doesn’t have time for high school games. She doesn’t have time for her best friend’s schoolyard crush on her. She doesn’t have time for her brother’s overprotective behavior. And she certainly doesn’t have time for the new guy in her class, no matter how hypnotizing his eyes might be.

Three months ago, Colette Belrose was murdered.

Colette relives the fire every day. She can still feel the ropes that tore into her wrists as she fought to get free. She can still taste the smoke that infected her lungs and choked her. She can still smell her flesh burning as the flames consumed her. Worst of all, she can still hear the sound of her parents screams as they burned alive beside her.

Three months ago, Colette Belrose was brought back to life.

Thought only to be a myth, furies are reborn to protect the innocent from the same fate that they once suffered. They only have one rule: they must not hunt the ones who killed them no matter the circumstance.

Cursed with an insatiable thirst for vengeance and a blinding disregard for rules, Colette will find the man who killed her parents even if it kills her. Again.

Oooh!  A character is killed and then brought back and now wants vengeance for her death?  Count me in!

Broken Wish

By: Julie C. Dao

Expected Publication Date: October 6th, 2020

Buy on:  Amazon

Hanau, Germany

Sixteen-year-old Elva has a secret. She has visions and strange powers that she will do anything to hide. She knows the warnings about what happens to witches in their small village of Hanau. She’s heard the terrible things people say about the Witch of the North Woods, and the malicious hunts that follow. But when Elva accidentally witnesses a devastating vision of the future, she decides she has to do everything she can to prevent it. Tapping into her powers for the first time, Elva discovers a magical mirror and its owner—none other than the Witch of the North Woods herself. As Elva learns more about her burgeoning magic, and the lines between hero and villain start to blur, she must find a way to right past wrongs before it’s too late.

Oooh!  A book about witches!  I always love reading books about witches and magic!  Definitely looking forward to this book!

The Sunday Post Meme (186)


Hey everybody! I am participating in a book meme called the Sunday Post which is being hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer!The goal of this meme is to share news you have  on various books and things you’ve read or received and also talk about what is coming up for your blog! Book hauls can include library books, yard sale finds, arcs and bought books and you can share these finds with other book bloggers!

Hey everyone!  Man, it's been awhile since I last did a Sunday Post!  I have to tell you, so much has happened these past few months and a lot of them weren't that good.  I won't really go into details about all the drama that's going on in the outside world right now, but 2020 has not been a good year so far.  The virus pandemic, the shootings, everybody is fighting with each other... too many bad things going on right now that I'm just so stressed out by everything.  I just wish that everything would get better by the end of the year, because I'm just reaching my limit with how horrible this year has been so far.

* "Project Power" was quite an amazing film for me!  I just loved the city setting of this movie, as well as the theme of people getting superpowers by taking a pill!  All of the actors and actresses have done a fantastic job at acting this film and it's definitely my favorite movie of the year so far!


* "The Babysitter: Killer Queen" was the sequel to "The Babysitter" that I've been waiting for!  I loved watching "The Babysitter" when if first came out and I was hoping that it would get a sequel!  So, I finally saw the sequel and I LOVED IT!  It was just as crazy and awesome as the first movie and I'm hoping that this series gets a third movie soon!                                                                                                                                                                


* "Work It" was a really fun dance movie that I really enjoyed and I just loved seeing all the characters dancing throughout this movie!  It's been awhile since I last seen a dance movie and it's great that I got a chance to watch a light-hearted film for once, especially during these stressful times.


* While "Fatal Affair" does have a generic plot line, I still really enjoyed this movie for being really tense and I was hoping that the protagonist would escape her crazy stalker at the end of the movie!
