Hi friends! I’m here with a review for a book I read a WHILE ago: namely, Three Dark Crowns. I wrote this review right after finising the book…and I’m so sorry for the cringey mess you;re about to suffer through. One Sentence Synopsis Three sisters try to kill each other to compete to be queen. I would first and foremost like to say that I do not mean to hurt the author in any way, these are just my thoughts and opinions and she did a fantastic job because she WROTE AN ACTUAL BOOK AND GOT IT PUBLISHED that’s an … Continue reading Three Dark Crowns | Backlist Review
Hi friends! I’m back with another I Heart Characters post!! This meme is hosted by the wonderful Dani @ Perspective of A Writer and today’s topic is High School First Love! *smirks*. Ahem. Well. There’s a small, tiny, practically non-existent chance…OH WHO AM I KIDDING. I’m not (that) ashamed to admit that I would (and do) have a terrible crush on Peter Parker. THREE REASONS WHY I LOVE HIM UM He’s adorable and nerdy and geeky but mostly adorable. And he’s only slightly older than me so IT WOULD WORK OUT*. Let’s be real: Peter Parker = everyone else so I mean hanging out with all these awesome … Continue reading I Heart Characters
Hi friends! I’m back with another post all about places I want to see more books set in. Let’s do this thing! Paris! *sings obnoxiously* IF WE GO DOWN, THEN WE GO DOWN TOGETHER! Sure, we’re getting more books set here (see: Enchanteé, Grim Lovelies) but I want more. There’s something about Paris that makes it absolutely perfect for a fantasy novel. Especially when it’s written like melted chocolate and macaroons with a hint of French class*. *I don’t know what I’m saying either Africa Because have you seen all the animals? Africa is sorely underused in YA novels and … Continue reading Places We Need More Books Set In
Hi friends! Today I’m back with another super fun Tag Tuesday, hosted by one of my favorite bloggers Shanah @ Bionic Books! To answer that question floating around your brain: yes that title is a Dora reference and no I … Continue reading Tag Tuesday: I’m The Map, I’m The Map, I’m The Map!
Hi friends! I figured I’d give you guys a quick update on everything I’ve been reading lately and my current thoughts about the books! City of Heavenly Fire You know what guys, almost a year after I originally read City of Bones, I’ve reached the finish line. CAN SOMEONE SCREAM IN MY FACE but don’t because my reflexes will say “slap” and I have no control over my reflexes. Right now City of Heavenly Fire is a big, fat 5/5 stars. Also after hearing TDA stuff I was shocked to see stuff releating to that series in this book??? Like, I … Continue reading Currently Reading
Hi friends! Today, I’m going to go over my most anticipated releases for September and protect your wallets, because these books are going to steal your money (and your hearts). Also I’ll be blasting September Song because FALL IS HERE. FINALLY. Ze 4th of September When Elephants Fly by Nancy Richardson Fischer, MY REVIEW: I really enjoyed this breathtaking novel that tackles schizophrenia and other prevalent topics! ALSO BABY ELEPHANTS. Buried Beneath The Baobab Tree by Adobi Tricia Nwaubani: I also liked this one. I mean, it’s heartbreaking and honest but that’s what makes it so good! And The Ocean Was Our Sky by Patrick … Continue reading Most Anticipated September Releases!
A Million Tears and Clockwork Angels (five stars) This may be the most incoherent thing I’ve ever written despite it being, you know, AN ENTIRE WEEK since I finished this thing? Please accept my most heartfelt apology if I end up chanting in Turtle. MOST IMPORTANTLY: Those last 100 pages were sorrow and heartbreak and that epilogue, man. A whole new definition of bittersweet. I’m so serious. I went through like half a box of tissues because I was actually sobbing. And that’s how my house flooded and I became homeless and now live in a library in the middle of Hermit Woods. … Continue reading Clockwork Princess | I’ve Never Cried So Flippin Hard Before
Hi friends! Today, I’m here with a new post that I hope you’ll enjoy! CHOCOLATE FROGS Because chocolate. And frogs BUT WAIT IMAGINE IF THEY’RE FROG-SIZE. I mean, when I’m technically only supposed to have one chocolate candy this totally counts right? Probably anything from Legendary but especially THOSE DRINKS I know you guys are probably screaming “DRINKS AREN’T FOOD” but ever since I drank half a hot fudge milkshake for breakfast and was full the rest of the day, I’ve been enlightened to the #NotHealthyButSuperDelishLife. Anyway, there’s something called spicy drinking chocolate which probably exists here but I don’t know … Continue reading Book Foods I Wish I Were Eating RIGHT NOW
Hi friends! I’m back for another rendition of the super fun meme I Heart Characters, hosted by Dani @ Perspective of a Writer. The topic for this week is Character Who Runs Into A Fire For _____. And I’m sure you can guess my choice from the title because ICONIC. WHO ELSE WOULD RUN INTO A FIERY BURNING FLAMING BUILDING FOR FOOD????? I’m pretty sure that if there were Scooby Snacks in question, Scooby and Shaggy would saddle up some ghosts/monsters and run hollering into that fire. They may look scared but don’t mess with their pizza. Or you’ll be … Continue reading I Heart Characters | Characters and Fires and SCOOBY SNACKS
Hi friends! I’m back at ya with another review, but first I’d like to send my great thanks the the awesome folks at Turner Publishing for sending me an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review! Synopsis The summer before her junior year, paleontology geek Natalie Page lands a coveted internship at an Ice Age dig site near Austin. Natalie, who’s also a plus-size fashion blogger, depends on the retro style she developed to shield herself from her former bullies, but vintage dresses and perfect lipstick aren’t compatible with prospecting for fossils in the Texas heat. But nothing is … Continue reading Mammoth ARC Review | A Contemporary With Awesome Rep!
