Folktales From Ravka by Leigh Bardugo

Not too long after finishing The Grisha series, I bought this bind up of three companion novellas in ebook form. I needed more Leigh Bardugo in my life ASAP! I really enjoyed all three stories and they are all really short. I don’t have a whole lot to say about each story so this should be quick 🙂 Overall, I’m glad I read them because they added some depth to […]

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I have to say, I had high hopes for this book but in the end I was disappointed. This book has been getting a lot of buzz and hype online. I was excited to see what the fuss was all about! This was my first Rainbow Rowell book and I’m sad that I didn’t enjoy it as much as I had hoped. If you’ve read Fangirl (which I haven’t), you’re […]

Life New Years – I mentioned in my December Wrap Up that “J” and I were able to spend the holidays back in Texas with our friends and family. We spent New Years Eve with our friends from home, which we haven’t had the opportunity to do for years since we moved away, and we had a blast! We had a fantastic trip – it was great to see so […]

If you would prefer to see this post in video form, scroll down to the bottom of the post! The Chaos Walking Trilogy I read this series at the end of 2015 and I was […]

Shadow and Bone (The Grisha #1) by Leigh Bardugo

I buddy read this book with Emily @ Emily Reads Everything, with much encouragement from Brittany @ Brittany’s Book Rambles. Brittany loves this series and talks about it all the time! Emily and I hadn’t read it and decided to read it together, with Brittany acting as a moderator. She chose all of our stopping points and was involved in our buddy read discussion (and by involved, I mean laughed […]

More Than This by Patrick Ness

Loving Patrick Ness! I’ve been fairly obsessed with Patrick Ness ever since I read the Choas Walking trilogy back in October of last year. I wasn’t planning on reading more Patrick Ness so soon, but one day I was at the library picking up a different book when I saw this one out of the corner of my eye. It was calling my name and I couldn’t resist checking it […]
