Book Haul #39: Hyped Up New Releases

Book Haul #39: Hyped Up New Releases

I had this impression that I didn’t buy very many books over the past month, but um. Well new releases. What can I say? September & October are both the best and the worst. I received 3 books in the mail just this morning. Soooo yeah, this is not the smallest haul of all time, but they’re all books that I’m crazy excited about. Purchased Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Illustrated Edition by J.K. Rowling: Obvious buy is obvious. But having this means I’m ready to start my Harry Potter reread. Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas: It took forever to get […]

I was first thinking of doing an ode to fluffy books, because people write off fluffy books as being dumb and average and whatever and WELL THEY SHOULDN’T – but I quickly realized that that would be mostly a repeat of my list of top ten beach reads. If you are skeptical about fluffy books, then check out that list and GO FORTH. But anyway, I decided rather to […]

Book Review: Poison by Bridget Zinn

Book Review: Poison by Bridget Zinn

Poison by Bridget Zinn is a truly enjoyable little fantasy story. It has some great characters (and one AMAZING one) and was easily digestible all around. When push came to shove though, this book never really did anything to stand out and wow me. That’s not to say that it’s bad… but I did wish for more. It had way more potential.
