DNF Review: A Thousand Nights by EK Johnston

I picked this book up in August as part of my #ARCAugust challenge, which was hosted by Read.Sleep.Repeat. I was kindly approved to read an eARC of this book through NetGalley (thanks Disney Hyperion!). This book is a retelling of the Arabian Nights story, which I wasn’t particularly familiar with until recently.

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds #1) by Alexandra Bracken

I have heard a lot about this series, but I honestly didn’t expect to love it as much as I did! This series has a lot of hype surrounding it and I can certainly see why. This science fiction dystopian is fast paced and kept me on my toes throughout the whole book. Overall, I loved the world, the story, and the characters! World Building Even though this is set […]

We actually spent more time in Napa Valley than anywhere else doing wine […]
