Book Review: Things I Can’t Forget by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Things I Can’t Forget by Miranda Kenneally

October 22, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★

I suppose that with every series, it’s natural to encounter a book you like less than the others. It pains me to say that that is Things I Can’t Forget for me. Though I won’t say this book was bad – I still swooned and enjoyed the romance – there were multiple factors that kept me from really connecting with it. Things I Can’t Forget is less sports-focused than the… Read more »

Top Ten New Series I Want To Start

Top Ten New Series I Want To Start

October 21, 2014 Memes, Top Ten Tuesdays 10

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I actually thought this list was pretty hard! Looking back, most of the series in the past TWO years that I’ve been really interested in, I’ve started. Most of the series I’m hoping to catch up on soon are older than that. But oh well, I still found 10 series that… Read more »

ARC Book Review: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

ARC Book Review: Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

October 20, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★

Ahh, the book with the too-pretty cover. And it is pretty. Pretty pretty. I find it very hard to look past books with covers like that. But, okay, I need to review more than that. Snow Like Ashes is an entertaining start to what will likely be a fantastic fantasy series. Though I have some reservations, I liked it quite a bit. Snow Like Ashes takes place in Primoria, a… Read more »

Book Review: Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally

Book Review: Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally

October 19, 2014 Reviews 1 ★★★★★

My heart hurts right now. Though less cheery and bantery than Catching Jordan, Stealing Parker hit me right in the feels and was so meaningful… I need to just take a moment. *breathes out* Phew. I’m okay. I didn’t know what to expect at all, going into this book. I hadn’t read the premise, since I got it for my birthday from Christina and was resolved to read all the… Read more »

October 18, 2014 A Personal Note 11

Calm yo tits, I’m not quitting blogging. But, if you don’t follow me on Twitter, you may have missed the news! I FOUND A JOB!!! Yes, starting this Monday, it’s back to work for me! I’m starting as a Marketing Assistant at a retailer, working on packaging development. I’m super excited, because it’s something that I did before (a bit) at my internship, and it’s a nice way to be… Read more »

ARC Book Review: Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future

ARC Book Review: Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future

October 17, 2014 Reviews 2 ★★★

A.S. King is one of those BIG NAME YA authors who everyone seems to love, so when I got the opportunity to pick up a copy of Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future at BEA, you bet your ass I was excited. I hadn’t read anything by her before – but I definitely wanted to – and with the future/timey-wimey aspect, I thought this was almost sure to be a… Read more »

One Year of Book Club!

October 16, 2014 A Personal Note, Discussions 11

It’s somewhat hard for me to imagine, but roughly one year ago, I decided to take my book nerdiness to the next level. I’d come to know and meet quite a few YA book bloggers here in the Netherlands, and as you all know: bookish people are the best people. I reached out to them nervously, wondering if they would want to start a book club, and in no time… Read more »

ARC Book Review: The Fire Artist by Daisy Whitney

ARC Book Review: The Fire Artist by Daisy Whitney

October 15, 2014 Reviews 6

Oh boy. When I heard that The Fire Artist would be at BEA, I wasn’t entirely sure I should pick it up. I hadn’t heard the best things about Daisy Whitney, but I have this thing with elemental magic that I find very hard to turn down. So when I coincidentally ended up at the Bloomsbury booth during the galley drop, I was like “YES.” *sigh* Ultimately, I should have… Read more »
