“Pain isn’t supposed to teach you anything. It only exists to hurt you,” (Thomas, 5).

I’d been looking forward to reading The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas for a while. It was the cover that got me, I love me some minimalism and the beige with the cheerleading skirt and splashes of blood sold me on it before I even knew what the story is about. Continue reading

Top Ten Backlist Books I Want To Read

Top 10 Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme/feature created by The Broke and the Bookish but is now hosted by The Artsy Reader

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! I’ll be honest, this week’s theme stumped me a bit and I’m still not sure if I got it right. I’ve seen the term Backlist Books used around some book blogs I follow, but I’ve never really understood what they are. A quick google search told me that they are older books that publishers are ready to give out to people. So for this week’s list I went through some books I’ve always wanted to read but don’t own. Hopefully I’m doing this right! Continue reading

Publication: August 28th 2018
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Pages:  480 pages
Source: Library
Genre: Fiction, Short Story, Anthology, YA, Paranormal
My Rating: ⛤⛤⛤

“You understand the truth, though, don’t you? The most terrifying thing in the world is a girl with power. That’s why they watch us burn,” (“Why They Watch Us Burn, May, Elizabeth 392).

This anthology has been popping up on my bookstagram for quite a while and as a lover of all things witchy and feminist and anything that combines the two, I was excited to get my hands on it. I remember reading a lot of paranormal YA anthologies when I was in high school and was excited to see how much they’ve changed since then Continue reading

Happy Halloween, it’s time for another Library Loot bookworms! This week I got A Room Away From the Wolves by Nova Ren Suma and Broken Things by Lauren Oliver, some creepy reads this week, which is kind of a bummer because it’s literally the last day of October. But November is a dreary month, so hopefully these books will fit in. Continue reading

Review: Vengeful by V.E. Schwab

Publisher: Tor
Pages:  480 pages

Genre: Fiction, Adult, Science Fiction, Fantasy
My Rating: ⛤⛤⛤⛤⛤

BEWARE! HERE THERE BE SPOILERS!

“Ask nice.
Play nice.
Marcella was so fucking tired of nice,” (Schwab 267).

Vengeful was definitely my most anticipated book of 2018 and it did not disappoint! I haven’t waited as long for the last (next? Please write more in this world Schwab!) book in the Villains series, I only read Vicious earlier this year forcing myself to wait so I could have matching covers for Vengeful’s release. But even waiting those few months for Vengeful was torture, but definitely worth the pain. Continue reading

Hello bookworms! Could it really be time for another Movie Alert!/Trailer Thursday? It is!

I don’t know if this technically counts since Sabrina the Teenage Witch started out a t.v. show, but this new Netflix miniseries is based on the graphic novel series The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina so I’m counting it! Continue reading
