Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is Thanksgiving day for us in the US. This is one of my favorite holidays – not only because of the food (and I LOVE Thanksgiving food!!). I love that Thanksgiving is a time for everyone to be reminded of the good things in our lives. I don’t know about you, but I spend way too much time worrying about my future and lingering on the negative things in […]

The Wide, Wide Sea (Chaos Walking #2.5) by Patrick Ness

** This is a novella in the Chaos Walking series. Even though events in this book take place long before the beginning of the series, it’s best to be read between the second and third book. This review may contain spoilers for previous books in this series. ** Amazing! It never ceases to amaze me how Patrick Ness can pull at my heartstrings. I loved this novella SO MUCH!! This […]

October Monthly Wrap Up

I know this is quite late, and I’m sorry! Check out my video below if you want to see me talk about the books I read this month. Life My Birthday – That’s right, it was my birthday at the beginning of this month – I turned 28. To celebrate, we went camping – one of my favorite things to do! We went to a lake and it was beautiful, […]

The Ask and the Answer (Chaos Walking #2) by Patrick Ness

** This is the second book in the Chaos Walking series. This review may contain spoilers for the previous books in this series. ** The Plot I was such a mess when I started this book. You know – because of the cliff hanger at the end of The Knife of Never Letting Go?! Well, you don’t get an answer to that question until you get into the sequel a […]

The New World (Chaos Walking #0.5) by Patrick Ness

** This is the prequel novella to the Chaos Walking series. I believe this book to contain spoilers for the first book in this series, The Knife of Never Letting Go, and I recommend reading this novella (and this review) AFTER the first book. ** Loved It! I don’t have a whole lot to say about this novella – after all, it’s only 25 pages long! This review will be […]

The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness

I’m not sure how to begin this review. This was my very first Patrick Ness book and it was the start of my new love affair with him – erm, his books I mean (although he’s quite the looker in my opinion 😛 ). This science fiction book totally blew me away in terms of world building and lovable characters. Not to mention the cliff hanger ending – which caused […]

#T5W: Top Authors I Discovered This Year

This is my very first Top 5 Wednesday post! Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group put together by gingerreadslainey, a book tuber I enjoy watching. This was actually the #T5W topic from October 21st, so this post is quite late. After I watched lots of videos on this topic on booktube, I realized I really wanted to do this topic too! I have read so many new authors this […]

Rook by Sharon Cameron

I read this book at the beginning of September as part of the Perustopia book club. It was the August book of the month, but the live show got pushed to the end of September. When Regan described the book in her book club announcement I thought it sounded incredibly interesting and I couldn’t wait to pick it up. This is a retelling of the Scarlet Pimpernel – a classic […]
