July Monthly Wrap Up

Life 4th of July – I was offered a babysitting gig that Saturday night and I decided to take it. I convinced “J” to come with me and we made an evening out of it. It’s always fun for me to see him play with kids, and after they went to bed, we enjoyed some fireworks from the balcony. It was a fun evening, and I made some cash! Game […]

Chasing Ravens by Jessica E Paige

I put off reading this book for a long time and I SO wish I hadn’t! This was a book I requested from NetGalley earlier this year when I got a little overexcited and requested A LOT of books. I try to stay away from NetGalley these days, I’ve only been on two requesting rampages this year! Anyway, I was recently in the mood for something fairy tale related. I […]

ARC Review: The Girl at Midnight (The Girl at Midnight #1) by Melissa Grey

Oh guys, I enjoyed this book SO MUCH.

I am so happy I got to read this book because it totally surprised me with it’s unique story. World Building I found the world Melissa Grey created to be […]

Book to Big Screen: I Am Number Four

Book to Big Screen Book to Big Screen is a feature where I review movies that are adapted from books, after having read the book. After reading the I Am Number Four book back in January, I definitely wanted to see the movie. I didn’t enjoy the book as much as I had hoped, but I thought I might enjoy the story in movie form more! And I was right […]

TTT: Hyped Books I’ve Never Read

This week’s TTT are the top hyped books I’ve never read. There are a lot of hyped books I haven’t read, let me tell you! Before starting this blog, I hadn’t read much for years and years. And before that, even when I was reading, I wasn’t aware of what was popular or the new releases were – I just read whatever books I stumbled upon and sounded good. Things […]
