“Sometimes I get this feeling of nothingness. It’s not a bad feeling. It’s a calm feeling. When everything is quiet. No expectations. It doesn’t happen very often” (Forsman, pages not numbered).

I was interested in reading The End of the F***ing World after binge-watching the Netflix show of the same name based on the graphic novel. The show, like the book, is a dark comedy focusing on seventeen-year-old James and sixteen-year-old Alyssa. James believes he’s a psychopath, and after disfiguring his hand and killing multiple animals, he decides he wants to know what it’s like to kill a person and chooses his classmate Alyssa to be his first victim. Alyssa is looking for escape from her uncaring mom and perverted stepfather, she finds this escape in James whom she falls for hard and fast, and will go to the ends of the earth for him.

I absolutely adored Romeo and/or Juliet by Ryan North, my first time reading a Choose-Your-Own Adventure book, and now want to make every review I write chooseable! It’ll make writing reviews twice as long, but it will make it more fun and entertaining for you bookworms right? So, without further ado, let’s start the review! (rhyming couplets for the win!)

Bookmark Monday


Bookmark Monday is a weekly feature by Guiltless Reader.

Happy Bookmark Monday bookworms! It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these, huh?

I haven’t been having much luck with bookstagram lately. The algorithm is really messing with my likes, not that it should matter, but it’s frustrating going from posting pictures and some people seeing it to no one seeing them.

I guess you can see them here, and that’s something! 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

Hello bookworms! Sorry for going MIA last week, I got really unmotivated in posting things online, but did a great job procrastinating on social media so I guess there’s that!

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day which makes today Galentine’s Day or Palentine’s Day if you’re into celebrating those. If not, it is Top Ten Tuesday, one constant thing we can count on. Which means it’s time to talk about this week’s theme!

So this week’s theme is love based (obviously) and as you know if you’ve visited this blog often, I am not a huge romance reader. Sure, I was in my younger days, but the tropes really annoy me. That doesn’t mean I don’t get a little swoony over my OTP’s every now and again, so that’s what I focused on this week!

(so I could make it a full ten I focus on some favourite scenes with some of the OTP’s).

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

Howdy bookworms, how’s January been for you? One of my co-workers described January as the Monday of the year and I’ve never heard a more accurate description for the month.

But it’s February on Thursday, and that means the month of love and chocolate and another holiday to look forward too (if you’re into Valentine’s Day that is).

Anyways, I’m rambling. I guess it’s time to get into some Top Ten (okay five) Tuesday! This week’s theme was a lot of fun, enjoy! Continue reading

Review: Television and the Wild, Wild Web And How to Blaze Your Own Trail by Marx H. Pyle

Genre: Non-Fiction, Help, Web Series, How To
My Rating: ⛤⛤⛤⛤

I don’t read a lot of non-fiction books, I just love getting sucked into the fictional worlds that fiction books have to offer. But considering I love making web series, and non-fiction books aren’t usually my forte, it made sense to start the new year fresh by reading a genre I don’t usually read, and learning something in the process!
