February 2015 Monthly Wrap Up

Life Man, February is such a short month! You wouldn’t think I would miss the couple of missing days at the end of the month – but I do miss them! It’s been a whirlwind of a month and, overall, I feel I’ve been pretty productive. Trying to balance work life, personal life, and blogging life has still been a bit of struggle this month. Honestly, I think it will […]

Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles #1) by Melina Marchetta

I was really craving some high fantasy when I picked up this book. I’ve heard a lot about Melina Marchetta, she has a lot of fans out there! This book wasn’t quite as good as I had hoped, probably partially because of the hype. Overall, it was pretty good… But I had a few issues with it too. World Building I loved the world Marchetta built here. I loved reading […]

2015 Love-a-Thon Mini-challenge #3: One Can Only Quote (+ Giveaway)

For this mini-challenge, we are sharing our favorite quotes about love and friendship. Here are some of my favorites that I made into my own using PicMonkey! Still pretty basic designs, but you have to start somewhere! I’m sharing a few quotes from one of my all time favorite books, The Princess Bride. If you’re fan of the movie at all, you should read the book! It is even funnier […]

Reached (Matched #3) by Ally Condie

** This is the third book in the Matched series. There may be spoilers in this review for Matched, and Crossed, the first two books in the series. ** One thing I loved about this series was that each book had a completely different setting. Same world of course, but exposed to different parts of it. This book was a great finale to this series, I loved it and the […]

Preview Excerpt: A Darker Shade of Magic by VE Schwab

Recently, I decided to finally get on NetGalley to see what the fuss was all about! I poked around to see how it works and what titles were available to me. I recognized this title immediately and requested it – I’d already heard some whispers about ADSOM online and it sounded like a good fit for me. To my surprise, I was approved quickly and I was excited for my […]

Peace of Evon (Peace of Evon #1) by Dorothy Tinker

I always want to be upfront and honest here on my blog when I’m talking about my thoughts on a book – or my thoughts about anything really! That being said, I want to say that my cousin self-published this book! (I AM SO PROUD OF HER!!) She has been working really hard on this quartet, and I finally got around to reading the first book. She even designed the […]
