Review: Swang Song

Title: Swan Song Author: Charlotte Wilson Published September 12, 2017 Note: I received this book from the author  t o facilitate my review. I received no other compensation, and all opinions are my own. From Goodreads: When iconic ballerina Beatrice Duvall died, a nation mourned – and a legacy was born.

W… W… W… Wednesday , hosted by Taking on a World of Worlds   is a weekly meme showcasing what you just finished reading, what you are currently reading, and what you plan to start reading next. I'm not sure what I'm reading next...so I'm going to add what I recently added to my TBR instead! What I Recently Finished Reading     I'm gonna be honest...I didn't love it :(  The writing was excellent but the Old Hollywood setting just isn't something I get into, so it wasn't for me. Still will read TJR's future books though!   What I am Currently Reading This is the same author that wrote the Ceruleans series (under the pen name Megan Tayte) that I LOVED....just got her new novel! Loving it so far! What I Recently Added to my TBR My Seattle bestie, Breanne, just told me about this book yesterday and I immediately added it to my TBR! She is reading it now and loving it. What are you reading this week?

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish .   This Week's Topic:      Top Ten Books on my Fall TBR List I've had almost no time for reading lately. Between moving, two vacancies at work (that I'm now training new people) and an adorable 18 week old puppy, I've just been so exhausted that I'll read a few pages and then pass out. I'll get back into the groove soon (I hope)! Thank you for still reading and sticking with me.  The blog is NOT going anywhere :) These faces will help you forgive me:  Elway (left, 18 weeks) and Peyton, 3 years                 Looking forward to some great reading this fall! Looks like I have a thing for blue covers... Just added a few of these to my TBR based on friends' recommendations! What should I read first?   Happy Reading!
