Every successful bookworm sleeps on a pile of the hottest ARCs, sent especially to them from publishers. Little under-bloggers scrabble at their feet for […]

5 Bookish Pet Peeves

5 Bookish Pet Peeves

June 5, 2017 Discussion 48

I like to think that overall, I’m a pretty tolerant reader. I push through a lot of books that many others DNF for various reasons (sometimes I kick myself for it). But there are still things that frustrate me when it comes to novels, both physically and story wise. Sappy romance that takes over the plot This is one of […]

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Review: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

June 2, 2017 Review 8 ★★★½

I don’t think I’ve ever felt this conflicted when trying to review a book. Even as I’m writing this, I’m not sure what I’m going to rate it. There are just so many thoughts about it floating around my head. So this review has turned into more of a discussion style, which I haven’t written in so long. As a side note before […]

5 Things About Heartless by Marissa Meyer

5 Things About Heartless by Marissa Meyer

May 21, 2017 Review 20 ★★★★

Wonderland (sorry, Hearts) is a strange world I don’t know why I forgot how strange Wonderland is. I mean, just the creatures that live there are weird, and then there’s the customs and every day practices. Quirky is the best way to describe this world and I’m not sure how I felt about it. Something I did love though was […]
