My God this book was amazing.

Genre: Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal, Middle Grade

“People think that ghosts only come out at night, or on Halloween, when the world is dark and the walls are thin. But the truth is, ghosts are everywhere…Just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there,” (Schwab 1).

So begins Schwab’s foray into the middle grade genre, and she does so as spookily and addictively as ever. 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

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

“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.
