Musing Mondays #1

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Recently, I bought Miss Mabel's School for Girls by Katie Cross. I've seen posts about it from several blogs, and the concept peaked my interest. I hope to read it soon, especially since it just came out. I plan on reviewing it on my blog, which will be fun. I really hope it's good! It has a lot of potential, and I was really excited to buy it. Bonus, it was only $2.99 on Amazon! Though I have a nook, I downloaded the kindle app for books that are cheaper on Amazon, which will definitely come in handy and make me able to get more books!

Book Summary: Never underestimate the power of a determined witch.

Letum Wood is a forest of fog and deadfall, home to the quietly famous Miss Mabel’s School for Girls, a place where young witches learn the art of magic.

Sixteen-year-old Bianca Monroe has inherited a deadly curse. Determined to break free before it kills her, she enrolls in the respected school to confront the cunning witch who cast the curse: Miss Mabel.

Bianca finds herself faced with dark magic she didn’t expect, with lessons more dangerous than she could have ever imagined. Will Bianca have the courage to save herself from the curse, or will Miss Mabel’s sinister plan be too powerful?

Miss Mabel’s School for Girls is the first novel in The Network Series, an exciting new fantasy collection. A gripping tale about the struggle to survive, it will take you to a new place and time, one you’ll never want to leave


  1. I am going to finish this one up tonight! Really good and excited to see where the series goes!

    1. I'm glad to hear that it's good! I was able to buy it so soon because of your post yesterday showing it was $2.99 on Amazon. That and when you promoted the giveaway, those two things really made me want to read the book!

  2. That cover is GORGEOUS. When I was planning to purchase an ereader, I was debating between the kindle/kobo/nook, but chose the kindle because more books will be compatible/cheaper. Thanks for sharing this Victoria xx

    1. I agree, the cover IS gorgeous!! I wasn't sure what kind of ereader I wanted, but this was a surprise gift on my birthday the past year. I'm very happy with it though! It's nice too that there's a Barnes & Noble less than a mile from my house so it's easy to get accessories and other things for the nook. It's a sensible choice for me, but the kindle was another one I was contemplating getting when I hadn't had an ereader yet.
