Magic Shifts (Kate Daniels #8) by Ilona Andrews

Book confession #1: Kate Daniels is virtually all I’ve read this year. I do not regret it as she is fabulous and all I need out of life.

Will be posting more quotes as I read along because I want to introduce others to the humor and just awesomeness that is Kate Daniels, aka I want you to fangirl alongside me.

PS; I sort of started reading The Valiant by Lesley Livingston, and so far (only like 40 pages in) it is taking twists and turns I was not expecting. I like it.

#TheReadingQuest is a reading book challenge hosted by readatmidnight.com. This is the description according to her blog’s sign up post:

Video-game quest? Gain experience? LEVEL UP? Oh my, sign me up! It is definitely one of the most involved challenges I have ever come across. Not to mention the graphics for this challenge are so beautiful, huge props go to CW of Read, Think, Ponder for her terrific work.
