January 2017 Wrap Up

February 5, 2017 Meme 20

It’s the end of January and I’m still trying to write 2016 on everything I put a date on. Will I ever adjust? Probably not until November. Also Alise is busy with real life and job searching, the usual new graduate things, so hasn’t had time to add stuff about her life to the post. But that’s okay because I’m […]

5 Things About Caraval by Stephanie Garber

5 Things About Caraval by Stephanie Garber

January 29, 2017 Review 32 ★★★★

Intimidating Hype I was scared to start CARAVAL. Every book that gets a lot of hype is incredibly daunting because of that fear of  “What if I don’t like it?” There have been times where I’ve had high expectations as a result of overwhelming praise from book bloggers which the book couldn’t meet and so I was left disappointed.

In HEXENHAUS this was not the case, as I really enjoyed all the stories and […]

When I’m Not Reading: Bec’s Video Game Edition

January 11, 2017 Discussion 16

When I went on my Christmas break, I was supposed to read the entire time and catch up on a number of series. That was the plan anyway. It was going well until I started one little video game and went in a spiral of game binges. Oops. While not great for my reading goal, this gaming binge did inspire […]
