My Top Ten Most Underrated Books (According to Goodreads)

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I love and hate today’s topic. I love that we get to shine the spotlight on those titles that definitely deserve more attention, but I hate that while looking on Goodreads for books I’ve read with less than 2,000 ratings, I saw so many titles that genuinely upset me. Holy crap guys. You all have some catching up to do. As in, please, do read these, right about now. My Top Ten Most Underrated Books (According to Goodreads) 1. Hook’s Revenge by Heidi Schulz: I am […]

ARC Book Review: The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz

ARC Book Review: The Pirate Code by Heidi Schulz

When I read Hook’s Revenge last year, I had practically no expectations and got one of my favorite books of 2014. So to say that I was excited for the sequel would be a bit of an understatement. The Pirate Code is a brilliant follow-up to Hook’s Revenge, cementing this as one of my favorite middle grade series of all time. The Pirate Code has everything I love most about middle grade books. Jocelyn continues being awesome and adorable. This little girl takes charge of a pirate ship of adults who act like children, and she’s on a mission. She’s going to find her father’s […]

Top 7 Fairy Tale Retellings I’ve Read and Top 3 Retellings I Want To Read

Top 7 Fairy Tale Retellings I’ve Read and Top 3 Retellings I Want To Read

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Weird thing: I absolutely adore fairy tale retellings, but apparently I haven’t read nearly enough of them. I couldn’t come up with a list of 10 good ones if I tried! 🙁 BUT that means I can use part of this list to muse on some of the retellings I definitely need to prioritize on my TBR. So here – we – go. Top 7 Retellings I’ve Read 1. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer: Obvious choice is obvious. I mean, Meyer retells the fairy tales […]

Top Ten Books I Read In 2014

Top Ten Books I Read In 2014

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. Here it is, probably one of the most dreaded topics of the year, because now we have to make some srs choices. Instinct screams, “JE REFUSE!” But, I don’t actually feel too bad, because I’ve been keeping up with my book rankings for the year in my yearbook spreadsheet – so I haven’t forgotten about all of the AMAZING books at the beginning of the year. In fact, despite having read over 120 books this year so far, I’m pretty happy with the top 10 that […]

Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

Top Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

This is a meme from The Broke and the Bookish. For info about the topics and how to participate, click here. I’m not gonna lie, this is a pretty tough topic for me. A lot of the real locations in books that I’ve read that are the most majestic, I’ve already been to. (Think Paris, London, New York…) And a lot of the fictional worlds, fantasy/sci-fi, are so caught up in wars, rebellions, or scary monsters that I don’t necessarily want to be there. Yes, once again, I’m taking a topic way too literally, but whatever, this is how I roll. Cue a pretty clichéd list. Real […]

ARC Book Review: Hook’s Revenge by Heidi Schulz

ARC Book Review: Hook’s Revenge by Heidi Schulz

I don’t even think I can recall the last time that I’ve been so utterly freaking delighted about a book – that I loved every minute of it and happily put it on my “everything-i-wanted” shelf on Goodreads. Hook’s Revenge, Heidi Schulz’s amazing middle grade debut, completely swept me off my feet. I’m head over heels for a book… and a middle grade book at that. You know what, don’t even read my review, I can’t do this book justice – just go buy this book right now. …What? You’re still here? *sigh* Guess I’ll write a review after all then. And that, my friends, […]
