Bec’s 2017 Reading Statistics

December 27, 2017 Discussion 24

With the end of the year comes many posts about what bloggers have read this year. I’m always interested in these because not only do they highlight the best and worst, but I find the break down of genres, pages, authors, etc incredibly interesting. Since I actually used Excel to track my reading this year, I’m actually going to attempt […]

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Review: Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

December 24, 2017 Review 8 ★★★★

After really enjoying THE UNEXPECTED EVERYTHING (dogs) by Morgan Matson, I wanted to check out her other books. SINCE YOU’VE BEEN GONE had somewhat of a fun, interesting premise as well: Emily’s best friend has disappeared, but she left a list behind full of things to complete. As an introverted person I could definitely relate to Emily and her struggle […]

5 Girls that Embody Brains over Brawn

December 21, 2017 Discussion, Recommendations 16

As much as I love reading about kick-ass girls in fantasy novels, sometimes I just wish they were a little more like me:¬†uncoordinated, clumsy, and with absolutely zero upper body strength. If I had to live in the world they do, I’d probably die… Probably, if it weren’t for my wits. It’s so exciting when I do come across a […]

Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

Review: The Winner’s Crime by Marie Rutkoski

December 18, 2017 Review 10 ★★½

I’ll start off by saying that I really enjoyed THE WINNER’S CURSE, the first novel in this series. However, this installment, THE WINNER’S CRIME, feels very much like a filler book. In fact, I read it a few weeks ago and can barely tell you anything that happened in it. I’m definitely in the minority with this one, but I […]

5 Books I’d Love to see On Screen

5 Books I’d Love to see On Screen

December 15, 2017 Discussion 16

When us bookworms hear that an adaptation is being made of our favourite novels, we are filled with both excitement and dread. The prospect of seeing our beloved characters come to life and bringing new fans to the books is something we dream of. But the risk that the adaptation will destroy everything we love about a book is big. […]

Review: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: Unearthed by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

December 11, 2017 Review 6 ★★★

Full disclosure: I struggle with sci-fi novels. I’m not sure why, but even the best science fictions novels are hard for me to get through. So, keep that in mind when I talk about the pacing of this novel. This feels very much like a setup book. There is a ton of world building and explanation in the beginning, exploration […]
