Another long time without a review! I keep apologizing for this, and I keep getting worse at writing more reviews. But I’m not giving up yet. I just need to learn to organize my time better, write reviews whenever I have the opportunity instead of procrastinating.
Let’s hope I stick with it this time. Continue reading
I last posted a month ago and that is way too long! I’m so sorry for the lack of posts on here, as well as on Instagram. In September I got hired in three different jobs: one full-time, one part-time, one occasional. I’m still trying to organize my time for when to post and write reviews, but I have been keeping up with my reading which is good!
I thought it was best to do a Review Round-Up of some of the books I read over the summer/recently.

Let me start by saying I love Kelley Armstrong. I love that she is a Canadian author, that she experiments in many different genres, and that she just keeps writing. She has so many books to her name and her stories are loved by many readers, including me.
What I don’t love about Kelley Armstrong are her series. But that isn’t completely true either. Continue reading

This book has been buzzing around my bookstagram for so long I knew I had to read it. I’ve heard so many good things about Victoria/V.E. Schwab’s Shades of Magic series, so I thought it might be good to start with her newest book. It was getting rave reviews, so it must be a good place to start, right?
Yes, it was. I really really enjoyed This Savage Song, but I’m really torn about how to rate it. I felt one way when reading the book, another when it was finished, and another way again when I found out it was a part of an upcoming series. So I’m going to keep my 3.5 rating for now, because it seems the best middle ground to sort out my feelings for the book. Continue reading
