“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

Monthly Wrap-Up is a book meme hosted by Bookidote.

Well, another month has come and gone and it looks like it’s time for another Monthly Wrap-Up! I actually read quite a lot this month, a lot of really good reads, and I hope to reach my fifty book goal by the end of the year which means A LOT of reading in November! Continue reading

Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Claire from The Captive Reader and Linda from Silly Little Mischief that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

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

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

Movie Alert is a book meme hosted by me to show trailers for different book to movie/tv show adaptions. Feel free to use it, just make sure to credit my blog!

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

Hooray, all of my holds are coming in which means I have more Library Loot to talk about! Good for my blog, not so much for my TBR pile. I only got one new book this week, The Cheerleaders by Kara Thomas, which looks like a creepy read and one perfect to finish off October with. Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday

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

Everyone loves a good villain and I am no exception! This Top Ten Tuesday theme was so much fun to write because it made me remember so many of my favourite books with villains, and I tend to like villains more than heroes (whoops!). Though I do have a lot of antiheroes on this list. Check out my favourite villains! Continue reading
