On the Night Table [35]: Interruptin’ My Grindin’


Remember that time when I said, yeah. I’m going to cut down my On the Night Table posts to monthly instead of weekly because I’m unable to keep to the schedule? Well, life’s just been full of interruptions lately that I’m barely keeping to the monthly posts as well. I’ve decided that I’m going to keep my reading queue to the barest minimum. So this month, my focus is on these three books along with others that I’ve been attempting to finish for months now.

The Mistake I Made

                                    The Raven King

                                                                    We Are the Ants

I’ve read The Mistake I Made a few months back but I didn’t write a review for it. Part of my goals for the next few weeks is to go back and write reviews that I owe. This is one of those books. I’m about three-quarters of the way to finish my reread. It’s about this single mom who found herself in a bind and had to prostitute herself to this rich man. Eventually, it leads to a murder investigation. It’s a good book and Ms. Daly rights with ease that reading (and re-reading, for that matter) it was a cake-walk.

The Raven King needs no explanation.

I’ve heard so many great things about We Are the Ants that I simply must add it to my reading pile for May. I must say that aliens have held very little appeal to me since the dawn of time, but I’ll bite. I want to see what this book is made of.

Have you read any of these books?
  • I am terrified of stumbling upon spoilers for The Raven King, which is why I’ll have to skip your review. I still have to read the Dream Thieves. I love these posts of yours though Joy!

  • I still need to start the Raven series! I have the first book!

  • WHAT? I thought you read We Are the Ants months ago! Grrr, get to it, woman! hahaa I should, too. It’s funny coz I actually enjoy writing reviews almost as much as reading books 😛

  • I have not heard of We are the Ants. I hope you review it so I can hear more about it. Aliens? I am interested!

  • I’ve heard a lot about We Are the Ants as well, so I’ll be curious to find out what you think of it. I also have The Raven King on my TBR, definitely excited. Enjoy these 🙂

    I really loved We are the Ants, so I hope it works for you! It’s not all that sci-fiy if that makes sense? You don’t really need to be into alien books to like this one!


  • Just finished the Raven King a few days ago, will be interested to see your thoughts! And We Are the Ants is also on my TBR, thanks to all the rave reviews. Happy reading!

  • Melliane

    Nope I haven’t read any I confess

  • I really want to read We Are Ants because I’ve heard such great things about it. I’ve accepted the fact that I am not a fast reader anymore and that I will probably read one book in about a week, and that’s okay!

  • I love the cover of We Are The Ants. So pretty!

  • We Are The Ants, YES to this book. I loved it so, so much. & don’t worry about the whole Alien thing, it’s not what he really seems.

    • Oh and THE RAVEN KING. I desperately need to hurry up and read Blue Lily, Lily Blue so I can finally get to the finale.

  • I’m behind one book… I so need to catch up because this series is SO amazing to me! Enjoy, Joy 🙂

  • Now I’m curious over We Are The Ants

  • kindlemom1

    You are going to love The Raven King! So excited for you to start it!

  • Oh I totally get how things can get in the way. You have picked some great books and I cannot wait to read the Raven King!

  • I read the Raven King *seals lips*
    And I’ve heard amazing things about We Are the Ants. Look forward to seeing what you think!

  • So I have about five books I have read that I still need to write reviews of. I am so behind on life but I will get there and get them up and posted! Oh, and I really like the sound of We Are the Ants. I have read another book by that author and I really liked it, so it holds a lot of promise to me. Oh, and I know everyone loves the Raven King series. I should really try the first book!

  • Yaay 😀 Best of luck reading these awesome books sweet girl. <3 The Raven King 😀 MY LOVE. I haven't read it yet. Because I shall re-read the first three books. And I haven't felt like it yet, lol 😀 But shoooortly, I hope. So excited for it. Gah. We must both love it 😀 Happy reading Joy. <3

    We are the Ants is about aliens? I DID NOT KNOW THAT JOY! That one just got a whole lot more interesting to me:) Looking forward to your thoughts on all three!

    And your poor leg! Glad you at least get that cast off soon:)

  • I’ve heard The Mistake I Made is really good, I need to read it.

  • The Raven King needs no
    explanation. Lol. I have We Are the Ants on my tbr-list, several of my friends
    loved it. Looking forward to your thoughts about it, Joy.

  • We Are the Ants has been crazy hyped and I’m definitely very intrigued by it. That cover is so great. I need to get on The Raven Cycle books already! 🙂

  • I’ve been seeing We Are the Ants and I absolutely adore its cover. I’d love to read your review for it 🙂

  • I have not read those…enjoy!
