ARC Book Review: Solitaire by Alice Oseman

ARC Book Review: Solitaire by Alice Oseman

Book Reviews | March 16, 2015

I knew that picking up Solitaire would be kind of a risk. It was the kind of blurb that attracted me because maybe I could relate to this main character and it would make me SOB. But it could also be pretentious, sappy, and/or completely boring. Sadly… it went for the boring route, and I just give zero […]

I Read for Characters

I Read for Characters

Lifestyle | March 13, 2015

If you’ve followed me for a while, you probably know about how I really wasn’t a reader growing up – in fact, I didn’t read much at all before 2012. So now that I’ve been reading steadily, truly a tremendous number of books per year in a wide variety of genres, I’ve been discovering some things about myself […]

Book Review: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Book Review: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

Book Reviews | March 12, 2015

I finally did it! I’ve had Ruin and Rising on my bookshelf for ages – since its publication day, actually – but I kept putting off reading it for some reason. I think I was scared that I would be let down. But no. Though there are some things that I would maybe have liked differently, Ruin and […]

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I had a really freaking hard time thinking of a topic for this week. I had like ten million ideas (i.e. genderbending, traveling, fairy tales, Greek mythology), but though I love ALL of those things, I simply haven’t read […]

ARC Book Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

ARC Book Review: Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes

Book Reviews | March 9, 2015

Mysteries and thrillers usually aren’t my thing. I won’t lie to you about that. No, the reason why I picked up Liars, Inc. is simply because of the author. Paula Stokes is amazing and wonderful and so so friendly, and I just adored The Art of Lainey, so in spite of this book being a little out of […]

Book Haul #20: In Which I LOVE Macmillan

Book Haul #20: In Which I LOVE Macmillan

Uncategorized | March 8, 2015

February’s book haul is late, but it is MASSIVE. I just can’t even with this. Though, looking back, my purchases weren’t too bad – especially since a bunch of those I’d read already. But the review copies… Ah, who am I kidding. Publishers are awesome and I can’t wait to read these books! ♥♥♥ Purchased The Near Witch […]

Book Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Book Review: Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

Book Reviews | March 5, 2015

Grave Mercy and indeed the His Fair Assassin trilogy is one of those super hyped up YA series that I sort of never really considered until an explosion of hype seemed to appear last year. That one’s on me. Whyyyy did I not pick this up earlier?? I absolutely adored this historical fiction with light touches of fantasy […]
