Top Ten Books I Hope To Find Under My Christmas Tree

Top 10 Tuesday

Merry Christmas to you bookworms celebrating and Happy Holidays or Happy Day to those that don’t! I actually didn’t ask for many books this Christmas and as I write this am not sure what I’ve gotten, if any I asked for! I asked for a few, but one of my favourite things is to see what books my friends and family pick out for me to see what I’d like! Continue reading

Top Ten Winter 2018 TBR

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

Who am I kidding, I’m not going to be able to read ten books before the end of 2018 and I DEFINITELY won’t be reaching my Goodreads goal for this year. Oh well, there’s always next year.

So instead of choosing ten books I won’t be reading, for this Top Ten Tuesday I’m going to focus on what five books I plan on finishing by the end of the year. I think I’ll be able to do it, wish me luck bookworms! Continue reading

MORE LIBRARY BOOKS AND MORE THINGS I WANT TO READ AHH! Though of course I don’t think I’ll ever run out of books I want to read, but it can be a bit overwhelming at times!

This week I got City of Ghosts by Victoria Schwab from the library and I am so pumped to read it! Continue reading

Top Ten Platonic Relationships in Books

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

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is a Freebie so I decided to choose a theme I missed a few weeks back, Platonic Relationships in Books! I absolutely loved this theme when it came out but forgot to actually make a post that week. It was surprisingly difficult to think of my favourite platonic relationships in books. I think it’s a problem with a lot media, putting so much attention on romantic relationships and so little on others. I only came up with four, how many can you come up with? Continue reading

Review: Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

Publication: July 31st 2018
Publisher: Delacorte Press
Pages:  384 pages

Genre: Fiction, Mystery, Young Adult, Thriller, Contemporary
My Rating: ⛤⛤⛤.5

“What I’m saying…is that girls hunger. And we’re taught, from the moment our brains can take it, that there isn’t enough food for us all,” (Legrand 261).

Sawkill Girls is a book I didn’t know existed and heard no hype for until it oh so casually popped up on my bookstagram feed and intrigued me. A feminist story with diverse characters who hunt monsters and there are moths?! It sounded exactly like my kind of book, and it didn’t disappoint, though I do have some criticisms about it.

On the island of Sawkill girls have gone missing for many years, but the residents never linger on the tragedy for long. Sawkill Girls follows three different girls on the island of Sawkill: Marion who has recently lost her father and has moved to Sawkill with her mother and sister as she tries to keep them stable, Zoey who is a misfit and eager to find out what happened to her missing friend Thora, and Val who is rich, beautiful, and dangerous and she knows it. But a monster lurks and watches them from the shadows and like it or not they’ll have to come together to defeat it. Continue reading

Guess who has more library books and not enough time to read them all? It’s me! And of course they’re all books I want to read so either I have to read them fast or decide which ones I have to return, if they can’t be renewed of course (PLEASE LIBRARY GODS LET ME BE ABLE TO RENEW THEM!).

This week I got Sadie by Courtney Summers and The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White. Continue reading

Review: Broken Things by Lauren Oliver

Publication: October 2nd 2018
Publisher: HarperCollins

Genre: Fiction, Mystery, Young Adult, Thriller, Contemporary
My Rating: ⛤⛤⛤⛤

“That’s the problem with lies. They aren’t solid. They melt, and seep, and leak into the truth. And sooner or later, everything’s going to muddle,” (Oliver 144).

Lauren Oliver is a writer who always seems to be pushing herself and her boundaries as an author. Her stories are consistently unique in their plots from telling the story of a haunted house through the perspective of the ghosts/house who move it or looking at a world where love is illegal, I’m always eager to see what new ideas Oliver will come up with.

Well bookworms, it’s Thanksgiving Week but I’ve got a secret… IT ISN’T THANKSGIVING TO ME!

But I’ll still do a Thanksgiving theme Top Ten Tuesday just for the American booksworms. So here are some of the Books I’m Thanksful For! Continue reading

“But when there’s one speck of truth in the lie, no matter how tiny, it can make all of it seem real,” (Suma, Nova Ren 233).

I had a lot of hopes for this book and I wouldn’t say I’m exactly disappointed by it, but I’m not all that satisfied with it either. Continue reading
