Most Wanted: July 2016

It’s 100% summer now and I don’t know about you, but I’m loving it! Yeah, that does mean less new book releases, but who didn’t need some time to catch up? And all the same, there are some books coming out this month that I have been absolutely dying for. Here’s looking at you, Kasie. July 5th This […]

Top Ten Books On My Summer 2016 TBR List

Uncategorized | June 28, 2016

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. So this week the topic is a freebie, but since I didn’t see the summer TBR list in any upcoming Top Ten Tuesday, I figured I would take this opportunity to do it anyway. Seasonal TBR lists are kind […]

Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Book Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by..

Book Reviews | June 23, 2016

If you haven’t heard of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, you may well be living under a rock. Aside from the movie adaptation hitting theaters later this year, this has been one of the most consistently hyped YA series for the past 5 years. And yet I’m only getting around to it now. Whoops. This book has […]

Maybe the best accomplishment of this haul is that there are absolutely no review books. Booyah. Purchased Cardcaptor Sakura, Omnibus 3 by CLAMP: These babies are a bit expensive, so I’m […]

Book Review: The Forbidden Orchid by Sharon Biggs Waller

Book Review: The Forbidden Orchid by Sharon Biggs Waller

Book Reviews | June 16, 2016

Two years ago I fell completely head over heels for Sharon Biggs Waller’s debut, A Mad, Wicked Folly. So the fact that I would pick up The Forbidden Orchid was kind of self-evident. Though well-researched and an interesting exposition of the setting, I didn’t feel like this book quite lived up to my expectations. The Forbidden Orchid is […]

Book Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Book Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

Book Reviews | June 11, 2016

Since reading Since You’ve Been Gone, Morgan Matson has pretty much gotten on my auto-buy author list. Especially when her covers turn out to be LITERALLY CUTE AS PUPPIES – LIKE, WITH ACTUAL PUPPIES. I mean, I couldn’t picture a book more fluffy and all about summer fun times – and that’s exactly what this book was. It […]
