Hi guys! Welcome back to another Monthly wrap up post! Time flies really fast! It’s already the last day of January and soon we’re going to enter February. I hope everyone had a great month.

Book Of The Month

BLOOD AND SAND BY C.V.WYK

The action-packed tale of a 17-year-old warrior princess and a handsome gladiator who dared take on the Roman Republic―and gave rise to the legend of Spartacus…

This book was absolutely amazing and totally epic! I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves action packed YA books with fierce heroines.

Blood and Sand BLURB:

FORGED IN BATTLE…
FROM THE DUST OF THE ARENA…
A LEGEND WILL RISE

Roma Victrix. The Republic of Rome is on a relentless march to create an empire―an empire built on the backs of the conquered, brought back to Rome as slaves.

Attia was once destined to rule as the queen and swordmaiden of Thrace, the greatest warrior kingdom the world had seen since Sparta. Now she is a slave, given to Xanthus, the Champion of Rome, as a sign of his master’s favor. Enslaved as a child, Xanthus is the preeminent gladiator of his generation.

Against all odds, Attia and Xanthus form a tentative bond. A bond that will spark a rebellion. A rebellion that threatens to bring the Roman Republic to its end―and gives rise to the legend of Spartacus…

    What a great month you had Raven! 10 books is about my limit so I’m not sure how you’ll squeeze in more in a small month but I hope your February rocks! Blood and Sand sounds epic!
