A Gathering of Shadows (Shades of Magic #2) by VE Schwab

** This is the second book in Shades of Magic series. There may be mild spoilers in this review for A Darker Shade of Magic.** The Audiobook I don’t even know what to say about this book because it was so good guys! I listened to most of this on audio and I highly recommend the audiobook!! I also recently listened to the first book on audio as a reread […]

Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir by Jenny Lawson

I read this book as part of a work book club. It’s definitely a little outside of my comfort zone because I don’t usually read memoirs, even funny ones. I had never read anything by Jenny Lawson prior to picking up this book. I also wasn’t familiar with her blog, The Bloggess. This book is a collection of funny stories from Jenny Lawson’s life – from her childhood through adulthood. […]

Red Queen (Red Queen #1) by Victoria Aveyard

This book has a lot of strong opinions out there about it. For the longest time, I was fairly wary about it because I had heard such mixed things. A lot of people really loved this book and a lot of people really hated it. I had no idea which camp I would fall into! A friend of mine (Jessica!) loves this series though and convinced me to give it […]

Monthly Recommendation: 1 Year Rewind Tag

I want to start participating in the Monthly Recommendations group, which is a GoodReads group hosted by Kayla Rayne and Trina @ Between Chapters – two BookTubers I really enjoy watching. The August topic for the group was a tag where you recommend one book for all of the categories that were discussed within the past year. I thought this was a great topic to get me started in the […]

Days of Blood & Starlight (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #2) by Laini Taylor

** This is the second book in Daughter and Smoke & Bone series. There may be mild spoilers in this review for Daughter of Smoke. ** This was a great second book in a series. Too often, sequels have disappointed me – especially recently it seems – but not this one! The Audiobook I LOVE the narrator for this series. I listened to the first book on audio and I […]

August Wrap Up

Life Miranda Lambert Concert – I went to a Miranda Lambert concert early in the month and it was so fun! I don’t go to concerts often so this was a fun and different thing for me to do. “J” isn’t a huge fan of her, but he came with me anyway for a fun date night. Miranda Lambert sounds the same live as she does on her albums and […]

ARC Review: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

I wasn’t the biggest fan of Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series. When I received the ARC of her new middle grade book from YALLWEST, I was unsure if I would enjoy it – but I wanted to give it a shot! Middle grade fantasy is what got me into reading as a kid, and I still love to read it to this day, so I was hopeful I would enjoy […]

Pokemon Indigo League #ReadThemAllThon TBR and Progress

I don’t know about you guys, but I am completely caught up in this Pokemon Go craze. The amazing Aentee @ Read at Midnight created this awesome readathon that is Pokemon themed!! As soon as I heard about it, I knew I wanted to join in. This readathon is so fun because it is like a game – you can earn points in different ways (more info in Aentee’s sign […]

July Wrap Up

Life To be honest, July was pretty boring for me! We moved at the end of June and most of July was spent settling into our new apartment and getting back into some semblance of a routine. We love our new place and it already feels like home! I got my braces off in July, which I was SO excited about! This was my second time around with braces and […]

This Savage Song (Monsters of Verity #1) by Victoria Schwab

The Worldbuilding The worldbuilding was my FAVORITE part of this book! It’s hard to find something truly unique these days, but the world and monsters that Victoria Schwab has created in this book are nothing like anything I’ve read before. In a way, they had some resemblance to monsters we are familiar with but they were completely different at the same time. This dystopian world was a lot darker than […]
