Why I DNFed The Disgrace of Kitty Grey

June 20, 2017 Review 10 DNF

Three years ago I wrote a post about how I struggle to DNF books. Since that post I’ve DNFed maybe 3 books out of 250. As you can see, DNFing is still a struggle for me, but when it came to THE DISGRACE OF KITTY GREY it was an easy decision I made at 28%. It had already been sitting […]

5 Male MCs I Enjoyed Reading About

June 14, 2017 Discussion, Recommendations 28

Being female, I’ve had an uncanny experience of reading mostly books with female characters. Who ever thought I’d relate to females more than males, being a girl. It’s so crazy! (please detect heavy sarcasm) As much as I prefer female leads overall, as part of the whole relating to their issues a lot more, I still enjoy the occasional male […]

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 […]

Not much time for a full wrap up this month because things are hectic! Yet again I find myself wishing for an 8 day week to get more stuff done.

5 Book Friendships that are Squad Goals

5 Book Friendships that are Squad Goals

May 27, 2017 Discussion 22

If there’s a relationship that gives me more feels than a slow burn romance in a novel, it’s epic friendships. The incredibly loyal, nothing can ever tear them apart types of friendships.
