TTT: Books I’ve Read So Far In 2015

Looking at my Goodreads, it looks like I have read 24 books so far this year. I know to a lot of people that isn’t much. I follow bloggers and book tubers who have easily read twice my number. BUT I DON’T CARE. I’m personally very impressed with 24 books for myself. I’m lucky if I can read a book in one week. Based on this number, I’ve been averaging […]

I’ve Fallen In Love With Audiobooks

I’ve been drafting this post in my head for weeks, ever since I listened to my very first audiobook (Shiver by Maggie Stiefvator) and loved it! I can’t believe I’ve gone my whole life without listening to audiobooks. I first started contemplating listening to an audiobook a few months ago and I asked around Twitter for audiobook recs. I knew having a good narrator was important, so I wanted advice […]

The Moth in the Mirror (Splintered #1.5) by AG Howard

** This is the novella between the first and seconds books in the Splintered series. There may be spoilers in this review for Splintered, the first book in the series. ** So fun! Loved it! I’ll keep this review short and sweet – just like this novella! I picked up this novella soon after finishing Splintered because I couldn’t wait to read more of this darkly beautiful world. Especially since […]

The Storyspinner (The Keeper Chronicles #1) by  Becky Wallace

Surprised me! I read this book to fulfill the 2015 Debut category for the Jan-Mar Bookish Bingo I participated in recently. I was kind of in a bind for a book in this category because I get the majority of my books from the library (I stopped buying books years ago, strange – I know!). Where was I going to find a 2015 debut book in my library when it […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My TBR For Summer 2015

I don’t usually plan out my TBR this far, so this was a fun exercise! I’m not sure how closely I’ll stick to these, but here are the books that I really want to read as of now. A lot of these books are in series, and I plan on binging A LOT of series this summer. I have to do better for my Prequel Sequel Challenge. Here goes nothin’! […]

DNF Review: Silverwood by Betsy Streeter

My First DNF! I’ll start by saying I didn’t finish this book. This is my first DNF since starting the blog. At first, I was really hesitant to give up on it – I really wanted to give it a chance. However, as I progressed through the book, I only became more sure this book wasn’t for me. I got to 28%, which is the end of Part 1. Yes, […]

Review Policy & Rating System

First DNF So, I doubt anyone has noticed, but I haven’t had a review policy around here (I do now!). As a brand new blogger, I didn’t think I needed one! Then, a few months ago, I ran into my first DNF since I started blogging. This DNF threw me into a bit of a blogging slump because I hadn’t previously consider how I would handle a DNF on the […]

Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta

Man, this book really took me by surprise! I still had a bit of a book hang over the day after finishing the book because of the emotions I went through. Crazy as it might seem, this was the first contemporary novel I’ve read in… Forever! The last contemporary I remember reading was back in the 3rd grade (Homecoming by Cynthia Voigt!). Maybe I have read a contemporary novel more […]

Incarnate (Newsoul #1) by Jodi Meadows

Wow guys, were do I start with this one? How about – IT WAS REALLY GOOD. That’s a good start right?? This is a series I have had my eye on for a while because almost everyone I know and follow loves this series. I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! I was worried this book wouldn’t live up to the hype for me, but it totally […]
