This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I actually really enjoyed making these for 2014 – and I actually did really well too! Except for reading more adult books, reformatting ALL blog posts (though I got all the reviews done), and finding a co-blogger, I pretty […]

ARC Book Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

ARC Book Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black

Book Reviews | December 29, 2014

I don’t typically read a lot of paranormal books, so I had never yet experienced Holly Black – a pretty big name author in YA. The opportunity to read The Darkest Part of the Forest came about thanks to BEA, and faeries are probably the paranormal creatures I’m most likely to like, so I was really excited to […]

Book Review: The Resurrectionist by E.B. Hudspeth

Book Review: The Resurrectionist by E.B. Hudspeth

Book Reviews | December 26, 2014

When I was offered The Resurrectionist for review, I’d never heard of it before. However, the concept sounded endlessly intriguing: an anatomist who theorizes that mythical creatures did in fact exist and that human deformities occur because it’s the species trying to get back to its original form. Sounds super cool, right? Add in a ton of beautiful […]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Lifestyle | December 25, 2014

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate it today, and happy holidays if you do not! I hope you can enjoy the holiday season, because it’s probably my favorite time of the year. Ever since we started celebrating Christmas, after moving to the US in 1999, it’s been something I always look forward to – not just because […]

Book Reviews | December 24, 2014

Two things I love? Figure skating and best friend romances. So, obviously, when I heard about The Boy Next Door, it immediately went on my, “OH MY GOSH CAN I HAVE THIS NOW PLZ I AM READY FOR THE CUTE” list. *cough* Yeah, that’s a list that may or may not really exist. ANYWAY. Cute and romantic, sure, […]

Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing Me (2014)

Uncategorized | December 23, 2014

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST HERE. And to tell you the truth, I had real difficulty putting this list together because I’ve been on a book buying ban for so long. I’ve actively been resisting thinking about which books I’d buy […]

Book Review: The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

Book Review: The Unbound by Victoria Schwab

Book Reviews | December 22, 2014

I loved The Archived when I first read it back in May, but then I put off buying The Unbound for forever – for some reason. LUCKILY, Gillian is a very very lovely bookish friend, and her giving this to me finally gave me the push I needed to read this most excellent sequel. All I can say […]

It’s been a RIDICULOUS week…

It’s been a RIDICULOUS week…

Lifestyle | December 19, 2014

Time for something completely different, completely non-book related. I’m just sitting down and chatting with you guys because WOAH what a week of high highs and low lows and just… Everything started on Tuesday, when during my morning commute someone jumped in front of my train. I knew this happened all the time, sadly, but I could never […]
