ARC Book Review: A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

ARC Book Review: A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab

Oh man, oh man, oh man. File under: most exciting giveaway winnings ever, because I can’t even begin to describe how lucky I feel that I got to read this masterpiece early. Yeah, it probably will surprise basically no one to hear that I fell in love with yet another book by V.E. Schwab. A Gathering of Shadows actually cements A Darker Shade of Magic as one of my all-time favorite series. If you liked A Darker Shade of Magic, it will probably please you immensely to hear that Schwab excellently continued her tradition of nailing all of the elements that make up this book. […]

Most Wanted: February 2016

Most Wanted: February 2016

January’s been busy busy, but it’s finally almost February! And February has a lot of exciting books coming out. Here are the ones I’m most looking forward to. February 2nd Starflight by Melissa Landers: I still haven’t read Alienated, but the pre-pub buzz about Starflight is EVEN BETTER. And yes, I need more sci-fi in my life. Stars Above by Marissas Meyer: UMM YES DO GIVE THIS TO ME NOW. I’ve actually read all of the novellas that were previously released online, but obviously I’m dying for the epilogue. My copy shipped yesterday and asdfjkl; waiting sucks. February 9th Call Me, Maybe by Ellie Cahill: […]

Book Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

Book Review: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

As big a fan as I am of Victoria Schwab, it’s taken me ages to get around to reading A Darker Shade of Magic for the simple fact that the hype surrounding this book was freaking insane. And yeah, I don’t cope that well with hype. But I should know by now that when V Schwab’s books get hyped, it’s for a good reason. A Darker Shade of Magic is OUTSTANDING. Whenever I get into an adult fantasy book there’s always a few expectations I need to manage. World building is gonna be intense, so I can set my standards for them to be pretty […]

Book Haul #30: …Wait, Number 30??

Book Haul #30: …Wait, Number 30??

I sit here slightly ashamed and mostly uncaring about the fact that I’ve not been posting for basically this entire month. I’ve been sick, busy, lazy, and actually enjoying my PS4 and new TV. 2016 is turning out to be about listening to myself and what I really want to do and not getting bothered with blogger guilt. But I’m not dying or closing down the blog just yet. No worries. Anyway, I have gotten some books in the past month and I thought at the VERY least I could spend a little time talking about them. 🙂 Can you believe this is my 30th […]

ARC Book Review: Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

ARC Book Review: Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira

With a title and premise so perfect, as a self-proclaimed book nerd, there was no way I could resist this book. And MAN am I glad it exists. So fluffy, cute, and funny – it cheered me straight up and delighted me for hours. I will say it took me a little bit to get into Bookishly Ever After. Though the premise is perfection and I should have instantly been like OMG PHOEBE IS ME, I was nervous. The constant bookish references and little cute book nerd habits almost seemed kind of like they were trying to hard… like this book was completely pandering to […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2015

Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2015

December 2015: and so the year ends! Happy New Year!!! Oh my gosh, 2015 flew by. In some ways. The last half certainly. The first half was rotten, and there were some rotteny things later on too, but overall I’m ending the year on a positive note. December was a super fun, but super busy month. So not much reading, a shit ton of movies, an absolute mountain of food, and – of course – PRESENTS. December Reads Books Read: Cress by Marissa Meyer (reread) Winter by Marissa Meyer The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak Bookishly Ever After by Isabel Bandeira The Deal by Elle Kennedy […]
