Marvelous Monday with Lexi!

June 11th edition of Marvelous Monday with Lexi at On My Kindle Book Reviews

I have some great news! The lamb treats Mommy bought for my Kong Wishbone toy-thingy came in the mail last week and I love, love, love them! I'll do anything for them, including staying relatively still for Mommy to take pictures of me.

Mommy had a couple of epiphanies last week. First, after going interviewing with yet another company that define part-time as 30 to 35 hours a week, Mommy decided to expand her search to include forum moderator positions. She's currently building a personal website to post her resume on so she can refer unconventional employers to it. I'll make sure to let you know when she finishes it.

Second, she's decided to change up the images on the blog a bit to fit the Notable template she's using from Blogger. Since the image thumbnails that the template is configured for are square, she decided to use the images that she creates for social media as the posts' featured images. She will still include the books' front cover images with the reviews but the square "bookstagram" images she creates for Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are a better fit for the template's configuration. It's a win-win in my opinion! Visitors to the blog will immediately see the hard work she does to create those images and they will see all of the pretty book covers that authors and illustrators work so hard to create, rather than a blown-up and blurry thumbnail.

Oh, before I tell you what Mommy is reading this week... She's going to share two book reviews this week because she's running a bit behind.

Currently reading DETHRONED by Genevieve Iseult Eldredge!
For eighteen-year-old Rouen Rivoche, being a fairy princess isn’t about fancy parties and happily ever afters.

Rouen’s people are the dark Fae whose powers of lightning, thundersnow, and all things Winter make them cold, severe, and 100% intolerant of rebellion.

Too bad being a rebel is in Rouen’s blood.

Against tradition, she’s teamed up with Syl Skye, the sleeper-princess of the fair Fae—a mortal enemy who Rouen should want to kill but only wants to kiss. Plus, to be with Syl, Rouen’s masquerading as a glam goth-rock star and human high school student. Honestly, Rouen doesn’t think things could get any more complicated.

Then, she discovers she must become Queen of the Winter Court or all her people will die. No pressure.

Now, dark forces are amassing in the Winter Court, turning Rouen’s people against her and blocking her path to the throne. Even Syl with all her powers of white flame and Summer can’t stop this new kind of evil.

Because betrayal cuts close when it’s someone you love… and now it looks like Rouen’s going to be dethroned before she ever becomes queen.
