It was another red-letter weekend in the Jordyn-Reads house. My husband is sick, and our kiddo is also not feeling the best. Last night was the worst night of the bunch, as little man woke up at 3:30 and did not go back to sleep until 5:30. My alarm goes off at 6:00. He wanted to be touching one of us at all times, so he eventually fell asleep with his head on my chest. Adorable, but uh…WHY COULDN’T YOU DO THAT AT 3:30???? God, I’m tired.

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. You choose a book from your TBR and show it off, so here we go.


After years of seeing her sisters suffer at the hands of an abusive prince, Marra—the shy, convent-raised, third-born daughter—has finally realized that no one is coming to their rescue. No one, except for Marra herself.

Seeking help from a powerful gravewitch, Marra is offered the tools to kill a prince—if she can complete three impossible tasks. But, as is the way in tales of princes, witches, and daughters, the impossible is only the beginning.

On her quest, Marra is joined by the gravewitch, a reluctant fairy godmother, a strapping former knight, and a chicken possessed by a demon. Together, the five of them intend to be the hand that closes around the throat of the prince and frees Marra’s family and their kingdom from its tyrannous ruler at last.

Have you been one of the lucky ones who’ve read this book already? What’s on your Goodreads Monday this week?
