I had a feeling Emma Lord would be the exception for my self-diagnosis of “allergic to YA contemporaries” ever since reading the synopsis for her debut. And after reading an ARC for her upcoming novel, you know what? I was … Continue reading When You Get The Chance ARC Review! // the perfect reverse mamma mia YA contemporary
So! I have spun countless thoughts around my head, desperate to figure out how to organize this post. And the consensus? Well, I’ve concluded that I will divide this concept into two posts; the first, discussing the books that I loved that didn’t quite get 5 stars; the second, discussing the books that did get 5 stars and are very much favorites. So without further ado, let’s talk about the not quite 5 star favorites! And because I’m slightly masochist, these will be ranked from “least favorite” to “most favorite”. You’re welcome. And before you ask, Beasts of Prey almost … Continue reading The Best Books I Read In 2021 pt. 1 // not quite five stars…but still favorites
This is going to be quite the long post I’m so excited! This is the only saving grace about reading books I don’t love: I get to rant about them at the end of the year. Just kidding…but also not. … Continue reading Worst Books of 2021! // oh yeah, let’s do this thing
I got this idea from Books With Emily Fox and I might turn it into a TikTok…if I ever redownload TikTok lol. Anyways, I probably won’t be angry at all! Because I never get angry! Especially not when it comes to books. And of course, as a slight disclaimer, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and I’m not going to hate on anyone for liking what I don’t or vice versa. This is just meant to be for fun! Let’s start things off with The Lunar Chronicles because why not see my heart explode? ” CRESS. Oh god oh GOD … Continue reading reading 1 star reviews of books i love pt. 1
Because my opinion is actually not an opinion, it’s undisputed fact. Anyways, I wanted to rank every single installment in The Wayward Children series partially because many things deserve to be ranked and partially because I haven’t finished Our Violent Ends and the post I was going to write on duologies works better if I’ve finished it. I’ll be going from the “worst” book to the “best” book in the series. And please don’t be offended or upset, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and this post is just for fun! and the worst book in the series (thus … Continue reading the definitive ranking of every wayward children book (so far)
You know, guessing which weekly meme I’ll participate in depending on my mood could be a game all by itself. Anyways, WWW Wednesday is hosted by Taking On A World Of Words! What are you currently reading? I’m buddy reading this with Andge from Down the Rabbit Hole just in time for Our Violet Ends to come out. It’s really good so far but I’m silently praying that I’ll fall absolutely in love with it by the end. What did you last finish reading? This book! You guys! I literally cannot express how stressed I was reading this one. It … Continue reading WWW Wednesday!
We’re back, and it’s time to stare in terror at my Goodreads Want To Read shelf yet again! The incredible @vee_bookish created this fun idea! The Shadowhunters Codex | Don’t get me wrong, I love Shadowhunters stuff. But I don’t have the time to read about the history, and the laws, and blah blah important worldbuilding stuff that’s also slightly irrelevant. So this is a bin for me! Stars Above | Technically, I’ve read three of the short stories in this already. Actually, I’ve read the last story two or three times alone. But I want to do a full … Continue reading bank it or bin it #2
Read the title and you will understand this post. I just thought it’d be fun to post about some beautiful, jaw-dropping covers coming out in 2022 and then become mesmerized by the screen for 5+ hours. Of course, that means I’l have to share the pain joy. Like, we’re in October of 2021. There’s countless covers that haven’t be revealed yet and already my eyes are writhing from the sheer beauty. But what kind of magic are these designers using? Also, can we appreciate how many Asian authors are winning the cover game because wow. That’s all I wanted to … Continue reading let’s just take a moment to appreciate some of the gorgeous covers debuting in 2022
My Goodreads and Storygraph are disgusting. I am appalled at how many books are on my Want To Read, and how many books are literally just unshelved with zero organization. So it’s time to whittle down my tbr, and uh fix the books I’ve already read! Book 1: Apparently this follows three kingdoms, one war, and a heir, sorceress, princess, and rebel. I’ve heard this being described as Game of Thrones for young adults and as an avid Game of Thrones avoider I’m loosely intrigued. But I do own it and I don’t own that many books. So I suppose … Continue reading bank it or bin it #1! // let’s make hard decisions together shall we?
