April 2018 Reading Wrap-up

So what happens when I have a two-week holiday and plan on doing a readathon? I read 13 books. The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco (Proof received for free, this does not affect my opinion.) Didn’t know what to expect from this one. But the story quickly intrigued me. A girl who accidentally raises her brother…

March 2018 Reading Wrap-up

I have this weird thing where a month is only successful if I can read at least 10 books, and this month I ended up reading… nine books. (*deep sigh*) Say Hey Name by Juno Dawson I’ve been wanting to read a Dawson book for years, but I never managed to find one where the short…

February 2018 Reading Wrap-up

With only 7 books read this is officially the worst reading month I’ve had since I started this blog back in June 2017. I don’t really mind though. I have never set myself a number of books I should read and I’m not starting now. Aside from the number of books (okay yeah so I usually…

It’s Kind of a Funny Story

This book ended up somewhere at the bottom of my TBR shelf over the years. I can’t remember when I got it, but I do know it’s been sitting there for quite some time. When I was looking for a book that would scratch one of the prompts off my Popsugar reading challenge, I finally picked It’s Kind of a Funny Story up, barely remembering what it was about.

January 2018 Reading Wrap-up

With only one day of the month to go, I managed to hit the mark of what’s a good reading month for me (reading 10 or more books). Between having a crazy work month and spending every Saturday working in my house to-be, I had so little free time that I’m still impressed with how many…

The Exact Opposite of Okay, already the best book I will read in 2018

I have to say that I was super excited to read The Exact Opposite of Okay right up until I read the short description. Yikes, a contemporary about a sex scandal, no way that this was going to be a book for me. But it was my last YALC ARC and I was determined to finish my crazy plan of reading every ARC before its release date. Sigh…

Naondel, one gut-wrenching feminist read

I freaking ADOOORED Maresi, the first book in his series, so it comes to no surprise that I couldn’t wait to read Naondel. My expectations were sky-high, but I had no doubt that they would be fulfilled. I just knew I was going to love this feminist read, but that is always a dangerous mindset to begin a book.

December 2017 Wrap-up

Hmmm, this month wasn’t up to my usual level of reading, but I did spend a lot of weekends in my house, further finishing up building it. (And it’s far from finished yet.) I ended up reading ten books, which does mean I ended the year with a new personal record by reading 105 books in total…

November 2017 Wrap-up

Another month has passed, so it’s time for a new wrap-up! I read 10 books in November, and here is what I thought of them. Everless by Sara Holland (Proof received for free, this does not affect my opinion.) I was SOOO excited to start this book! The premise immediately hooked me and I couldn’t wait…

Zenith, can we get back to the actual story please?

For this book, we’re playing a game entitled “how low can someone’s expectations be?” I already knew that Zenith hasn’t been received with the greatest of reviews and a friend told me they could have cut away half of the story without a problem. So yeah, I was prepared to give it a chance, but I was expecting to hate it without a doubt.

October 2017 Wrap-up

Whoop, whoop. It’s not really a goal I need to reach, but I’m always happy when I manage to read at least 10 books a month (that’s totally a normal amount, right?) and I managed to do it again this month! I read a glorious amount of 12 books! And here is what I thought about them……

When Dimple Met Rishi, she threw iced coffee in his face

I’m a definite sucker for a good book hype. The hype surrounding When Dimple Met Rishi was one of the biggest I have seen, so naturally I couldn’t not read it. It didn’t matter that this was a genre that I usually won’t even touch with a ten-foot pole, I needed to read this book and see for myself if it’s just as good as they say.
