Where Have I Been?

Hello out there! Yes, I am back! And ready to get some reviews up on this blog. I took a bit of an unannounced hiatus, and to be completely honest, may do so many times in the future. Yeah, you heard me right. I try my very best to keep on schedule and keep a continuous blog. But it’s hard! I have so much respect for bloggers, especially book bloggers, […]

Heartless

Review So, ummmm, it seems I have found yet another book to which my obsessive heart has attached itself. This book is near perfection. At least for me. Because apparently there is a lot of torn opinions out there in the book world, and I happen to fall into the “I LOVED THIS BOOK SO MUCH” category. The Good Stuff My gosh, Marissa Meyer is an amazing writer. And yes, […]

Read December 16th 2016 It took me way too long to finish this book. I flew through the first quarter, and then things just got too weird. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy a good fantasy story. But that isn’t what I wanted out of this book. I went in expecting an awesome, history-filled, looking for treasure-type adventure. What I got is was so far-fetched from my expectations that […]

Mini Reviews #3

I love the Game of Thrones show, even though I’m not the biggest fan of the nudity aspect. (I feel like there is too much pointless nudity. It does nothing for the plot, so I find it unnecessary.) I feel like I’ve put off reading the series, but my sister really wanted me to read this prequel. I enjoyed it a lot. There’s not much to these three novellas in […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Authors I’m Dying to Meet

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Let’s just take a second here to fangirl, shall we? I would love to meet the following authors. (Even if most of them may not be alive anymore! A girl can dream!) J.K. Rowling I have a feeling that this lady will top most lists. She’s just…a genius!!!! Major role model here. Notable works: If you don’t know, then you have been living […]

Do You Read Every Word in a Book?

Do You Read Every Word in a Book?

Recently, my mom walked in (while I was reading, mind you…..blerghhh) and asked me if I read every single word in a book. I thought this to be an odd question. I crinkled my brow and gave her an appraising look, and finally said yes. Then I asked her if she did the same. She said yes. I gave her another strange look and finally said, “Then why are you […]

Anna Karenina

Review I have conquered the beast!!! My gosh, I was dreading reading this book. Which, honestly, is sad but so, so true. Each movie adaptation I’ve ever seen didn’t do much for me. In fact I pretty much hated the story by the time I got to actually reading the book. But I was amazed at how much I enjoyed versus what I disliked. Lesson learned. Movies never do the […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read In A Day

Hosted by The Broke and Bookish There are a lot of people out there who can read rather large tomes in a single day. I can do that occasionally, depending on the day and the amount of times someone interrupts me. (It’s a never-ending frustration, folks.) But even so, I consider a “day” as the full 24 hours. Meaning, I may have started a book at 3 pm, and finished […]

A Conjuring of Light

Review My stress level was at its breaking point by the end of this book. Each and every turn of the page had me stressing out. But this series is so damn good. Literally, everything about these books is so good! And this one was no exception. I’m sad to have finished it because I was loving every minute. The Good Stuff People. I can’t say it enough. V.E. Schwab is […]

A Gathering of Shadows

Review Geeeeeeeeeeeeez. V.E. Schwab is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. Her style and wit…it’s all too much for me. TOO MUCH YOU HEAR? The Good Stuff Where do I even begin? I really loved the fact that this book simply revolved around the characters. If that makes sense? Let me clarify: it was more character driven than plot. It delved more into the characters thoughts and decisions than […]
