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

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

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

Happy Top Ten Tuesday bookworms! This week’s theme is Longest Books I’ve Ever Read, and it’s made me realize I haven’t read many long books, though I guess it depends on how long you think I long book is. I usually think anything over 450 pages is a long book, so for this list I could only think of four long books I’ve read! Do you read a lot of long books? Continue reading

It’s time for another Top Ten Tuesday bookworms! Have you ever been to a book signing or met your favourite author? I’ve been to some book signings in the past, I even got to meet one of my all-time favourites a few years back, but there are still so many authors I want to meet! And that’s the theme for this week, Authors I’d Love to Meet. What are some of yours? Continue reading

Happy Top Ten Tuesday bookworms! Today’s theme is Books By My Favourite Authors That I Still Haven’t Read. Now, a lot of authors repeat on this list because I have a lot of new favourite authors and a lot of books I haven’t read by them. This list is a good reminder for myself about which books by them I have to read! Continue reading

Happy Top Ten Tuesday, this week is all about Books On My Fall 2018 TBR! Normally I don’t do TBR’s, I find it stressful to plan to read certain books in a month and just read what comes naturally. But sometimes I have a few I want to read for certain reasons, like Howl’s Moving Castle on May Day. These are a few books I’m buying or are on my holds list at the library that I hope to read if they come in on time! Continue reading

Happy Top Ten Tuesday bookworms! Sorry for being kind of absent last week, I got back from holidays and it took me a bit to get back into the swing of things, but I’m back now and queueing up a storm!

This week’s theme is Ten Books to Pull You Out of a Reading Slump. I chose ten of my personal favourite books that I’ve either re-read, want to re-read, or have stuck with me. Sometimes a book to pull you out of a reading slump is one that you can’t get out of your head, and here are some of mine! Continue reading

Hooray it’s Top Ten Tuesday! Sorry for missing last week, we had a long weekend for Canada Day and it really messed me up. But I’m back this week and am digging this theme! This week’s theme is Ten Best Books I’ve Read in 2018 (So Far).I’m still new to regularly posting on this blog, so I didn’t know a bi-annual look at what book bloggers are enjoying so far was a thing.

Also fair warning, I’ve only read seventeen books this year (I am WAY behind on my Goodreads goal and it is slowly panicking me) so most of the books I’ve read will be on this list, but what can you do! Continue reading

“Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human” (Schwab 289).

V.E. SCHWAB I AM ADDICTED TO YOUR BOOKS! HOW DOES YOUR BRILLIANT MIND WORK? HOW DO YOU MAKE SUCH COMPELLING, INTERESTING, AND DARK CHARACTERS AND MAKE ME LOVE THEM? WHY ARE YOU SO AMAZING?

So if it isn’t obvious, I loved Vicious and I love V.E. Schwab (which is bound to become an old mantra very very soon). Vicious has been on my reading list since last year when I first read and fell in love with the Shades of Magic series (and V.E. Schwab), and if it weren’t for my many many holds at the library last year I probably would have read it sooner. But then Schwab announced that Vicious was getting a face lift to match the cover to its sequel Vengeful, so I made myself wait until the new cover came out to buy it. And am I ever glad I did.
