The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Wow guys – just wow! This book completely blew me away. This book was picked for a book club with my coworkers (this was our first one!). I was excited when it was picked because I love historical fiction, especially set during the WWII time period, and I’ve been meaning to read more adult books. I seriously read this book in two sittings – I went to Vegas for a […]

VE Schwab, Marie Lu, and Gretchen McNeil Book Signing

I went to my first author event!! I also vlogged my experience, so check that out if you’re interested. It’s my first vlog so I had no idea what I was doing – it started out much longer but I cut out some of the stupid stuff (like showing you how I like my bagel and coffee – nobody wants to see that Jade *face palm*). Excuse all the awkwardness […]

ARC Review: The Neverland Wars by Audrey Greathouse

I’m pretty picky about the ARCs I accept directly from authors – more so than when requesting from NetGalley for some reason (anybody else?). I think it’s because I feel more of a personal connection without the middleman involved, and this makes me want to only accept books that I am truly interested in reading. So, when Audrey Greathouse offered me an eARC of The Neverland Wars, I did some […]

TTT: Books Every Fantasy Lover Should Read

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Check out the list of future topics and join us! I feel like the only genre I currently have read enough of to recommend to others is fantasy! This list includes some things I’ve read recently but also things I read years and years ago. I stuck with high fantasy only, although I have read some fantastic urban fantasy […]

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days #1) by Susan Ee

I’d heard a lot about this book and was very interested to read it, but I was also a little apprehensive due to the hype ruining my experience with recent reads. I purposely went in with low expectations but was happily surprised with how much I enjoyed this read! Even though this has been on my radar for a while, the push that got me to finally pick it up […]

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

I’ve been meaning to read this book for ages – everyone who talks about it loves it, plus it’s won all kinds of awards! Of course I wanted to read it. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not much of a contemporary reader, so even though I really wanted to read this book, it was never the one that I reached for. That is, until I heard Adriana @ Perpetual Pages […]

2016 ARC April Announcement and Progress

Last August I participated in the 2015 ARC August reading challenge and it was beneficial for my small pile of ARCs (I read TWO – much better than none right?). Shelly and Octavia @ Read.Sleep.Repeat are hosting another ARC reading challenge for April, check out their sign up page for more info! This year they have a tiered system for different prize brackets. I know myself and I have a […]

February Wrap Up

Yes, I know it’s the last day of March! This post was extra delayed due to my mini reading hiatus!

Life Training for a 5K – In February I started training for a 5K that I ran in the beginning of March. I only […]
