September 2013: the month of BOOK HAUL MADNESSThis month, I finally got out of my slump, and I even improved a bit compared to last month! I read a total of 6 books and posted 7 reviews & 1 discussion (sort of). If that sounds bad, think about the fact that I basically had a total reading and blogging break until around the 10th […]

Book Review: Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Book Review: Coraline by Neil Gaiman

Book Reviews | September 29, 2013

Coraline, perhaps Neil Gaiman’s most famous work (due to the movie adaptation), is one of those books that probably everybody has to read sometime. I’ll be the first to admit that the only reason this book shot up on my to-buy and to-read list was because of the appearance of the signed limited edition slip case edition on […]

Goodreads, I’m Not Cool With Your Censorship, But I’m Not Leaving

Goodreads, I’m Not Cool With Your Censorship, But I’m..

Uncategorized | September 28, 2013

Since last Friday, I think almost everyone has been clued in to the fact that Goodreads has started censoring users who reference bad author behavior in their reviews or shelves. Everybody and their mother has been tweeting about it, and there are a ton of posts to be found on the subject. So why am a beating the […]

Book Review: Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Book Review: Stardust by Neil Gaiman

Book Reviews | September 26, 2013

I finally read my first Neil Gaiman book – ever! And oh boy it was just as, if not more, beautiful as I expected. Stardust is brilliant. It reads just like a fairytale, and Neil Gaiman shows what a brilliant storyteller he is. I think Neil Gaiman’s talent is obvious by how easily he creates a story that […]

ARC Book Review: Day One by Nate Kenyon

ARC Book Review: Day One by Nate Kenyon

Book Reviews | September 21, 2013

When I was invited to review Day One, I wasn’t sure it would be a good idea, as it’s not the kind of book I typically pick up (a.k.a. it’s not young adult). However, I thought maybe it would be a good thing to try something totally different and see how it worked out for me. The plot […]

Book Review: Adorkable by Sarra Manning

Book Reviews | September 19, 2013

I’m pretty sure we all know the quote, “We read to know we are not alone,” by C.S. Lewis. That sums up what this book means to me. This book is the closest that has ever come to being a reflection of me and my life up to now. It is so relatable, and when I find books […]
