Book of the Month YA

Hey bookies! Wow, a post that isn’t a book review? Who am I and what have I done with the girl that is super late with posting and is always all over the place. I’m still here, but I have some more exciting news to share with you all. This is my favorite platform to…

Firebone by Rosaria Munda

First of all, we are going to take a second to really appreciate the beauty of this cover. Take a good look at it. At first, what do you see? Most likely you see a dragon, but if you take a closer look, specifically at the wings you will see the side profile of two…

His Hideous Heart edited by Dahlia Adler review + excerpt

Ready to get spooky? Whether or not you love Edgar Allan Poe or whether or not you have even read anything by him, you will love this book. If you are a fan of spooky things, thrillers, horrors, things that go bump in the night and will keep you up at night, then this is…

The Girl the Sea Gave Back by Adrienne Young

The Girl the Sea Gave Back is Adrienne Young’s second published book, and is a companion novel to her first book Sky in the Deep. I read Sky in the Deep last year and it was so amazing! You can find my review of it here. While The Girl the Sea Gave Back is set…

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Well, this is a book that surprised the hell out of me. I will admit that this is the first Adult Fiction book I have ever read willingly. I was put off at first by this fact, thinking immediately that it wasn’t going to be like my YA books that I love so much. And…

The Beautiful by Renee Ahdieh

Three simple words sold me on reading this book. Vampires & New Orleans. Now I know what you are thinking, that the vampire thing is so overdone and needs to stay dead and buried(pun intended) but hear me out! This book shows vampires in a whole different light(pun double intended) this isn’t some dumb rip…

There’s Something About Sweetie by Sandhya Menon

As you can tell, I kind of went on a Sandhya Menon reading binge. Stick around to the end of this blog post to see just how newly obsessed I am. XD Now this book…this book has officially changed me. And I find it crazy that one little book has the power to do that….

As Kismet Would Have It by Sandhya Menon

Ask and you shall receive! In my last post where I reviewed When Dimple Met Rishi I complained that there wasn’t enough! That I wanted more of Dimple’s and Rishi’s story and after a quick check on Goodreads, I discovered that there was more! Sandhya had written a short story about Dimple and Rishi titled…

When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon

This review is long overdue. I was doing so well with all my book reviews, posting them on time, and then I didn’t write any for over two weeks and now I have five book reviews to write tonight and I’m already so tired. Why do I procrastinate…why!! Anywho on to this amazing summer romance…

Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Holy Merry Hell. This book BLEW me away. It is a complete 180 from the first book in this duology, Strange the Dreamer. It is fast-paced, vivid in all the details and captured me in such a way that I stayed up until 1am to finish because I could not put it down and I…

Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

There is a lot to be said about this book. There were moments at the beginning of reading this book, that I actually thought I was going to DNF it. The beginning of this book was just so slow. It felt like we were moving at a snail’s pace and I just didn’t know if…

Memento by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

So this little novella was part of the preorder giveaway for preordering Aurora Rising. Unfortunately it is not available to be purchased and you could only get it through the preorder campaign. I’m sorry for anyone who wasn’t able to receive one. Even though this novella isn’t open to the public I still wanted to…

Soil & Ceremony by Julia Bryd

I became easily obsessed with Soil & Ceremony by Julia Bryd. Based in 1800’s England, we get to meet Benjamin Hood the local village gravedigger and as it would turn out, one of the most well off and well-known men of his village. But Ben has a stutter and therefore is looked down upon by…

Broken Throne by Victoria Aveyard

Broken Throne wasn’t enough for me. But it was still beautiful. This book is a collection of short stories based in the Red Queen world. We get some stories that are based before the events of the first book, some after the events of the fourth and final book. And one that I have no…

A Reaper at the Gates by Sabba Tahir

Make sure you’ve read both my reviews on An Ember in the Ashes & A Torch Against the Night before you continue reading! I AM NOT OKAY. Where to begin. Let’s begin with how the Emperor is a fucking tool bag and is beating his wife to get to his Blood Shrike, his second in…

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

If you haven’t read of An Ember in the Ashes, make sure you do before you continue reading! So if An Ember in the Ashes was good, this was AMAZING. I tend to enjoy the second book in a series more than all the others and I never know why. A Torch Against the Night…

Heart of Flames by Nicki Pau Preto Cover Reveal & Excerpt

Hello Bookies! It has been some time since I have posted anything other than a book review, and today I am very happy and excited to bring you some very exciting news! Earlier this year I read Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto. Crown of Feathers is Nicki’s debut novel, set in a fantasy…

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

It seems this year is going to be a year filled with books I should have read a long time ago, and then instantly regret having waited so long once I finish. There are just so many books and so little time. This book is one that I wish I had picked up the moment…

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes was a book that took me by surprise. I’ve never really read historical fiction before, but after reading this book I plan to read a lot more of it! I also cannot wait to read another book written by Nadine! I got to meet Nadine last year at Bookcon! She is…

Finale by Stephanie Garber

Finale oh Finale, how you have broken my heart, healed it and then left it wanting so much more. There is a lot to be said about this book. First of all, I’ve been waiting for a year to revisit these characters and this world. It is one of my all time favorites and this…

Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

Vikings! Give me all the books about Vikings! After reading Tricia two previous books, The Daughter of the Pirate King & The Daughter is the Siren Queen, I knew I would read just about anything this author wrote. So when I discovered she had written a new book this year, Warrior of the Wild, I…

Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller

After reading Daughter of the Pirate King so quickly, I knew I had to jump right into the second book, Daughter of the Siren Queen. This book was just as amazing as the first if not better. We really get to see Alosa come into her own in this book. I thought she was badass…

Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

THIS.BOOK. This is another moment in my life that I am wondering why I waited so long to read this! This book was crazy good! I was instantly captivated by the characters and the storyline. I read this book in about 24hrs. It was such an easy read, full of action, love, death, and two…

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

There are not enough words in the world to put together to express my feelings about this book. It was world alternating. I cannot understand how just one little book can make me feel so much magic. The way this book is written is completely unique yet also familiar. Like I’m talking to an old…

Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

There is a lot to be said about this book. For starters, I am warning you guys right now, since the book does not, that this book can be very triggery. There is quite a bit of violence and sexual abuse that was very hard for me to read. At one point, I was going…

Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

This book captivated me from the very first chapter. It was face paced and so gripping. I loved every moment of this reading experience. Heart of Iron is a story retelling of Anastasia. Which I did not know going into reading the book, but I figured it out pretty quickly. At first I was slightly…

Author Interview with Caleb Roehrig

Hey Bookies!!! I’ve been spamming you all with so many book reviews and I’m not sorry! But today I am interrupting this scheduled book review to bring you something truly amazing. One of my absolute favorite authors of all time, Caleb Roehrig, has agreed to do an author interview with me!!! Literally, a dream come…

Wildcard by Marie Lu

There’s a lot to be said about this book, and to be honest, I don’t even know where to start. Wildcard by Marie Lu is on a whole different level of reading experience. Not only is this book super captivating and fast pace, but it also sucks you in, so serverly that I didn’t think…

Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel

So. Many. Feels. Dear Evan Hansen is an award winning musical, with amazing songs and even better storyline. I was lucky enough to go see it this past January, and reading the book was like being back, watching the play all over again, but definitely with some additives. Let me start by saying that this…

The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill

Now, this cute little graphic novel also came in OwlCrates February box. I probably wouldn’t have picked it up myself since I am not that big into graphic novels but after reading this book, I may be more inclined to read more in the future. I don’t know what is more important to readers who…

Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

Have you ever experienced a feeling, where while reading a book it is just so good that you want to tear through the pages and devour all the words, but at the same time you want to read it slowly because you just aren’t ready for it to be over and you to savor each…

Gmorning, Gnight! By Lin-Manuel Miranda

Hey bookies! Well, now that my March wrap up is up, let me share with you all my reviews of the remaining books I read in the month of March, starting with Gmorning, Gnight! By Lin-Manuel Miranda. This little book was SO CUTE! I read this book in a little less than an hour. The…

April TBR

Hey bookies! After reading 8 books in March, I’m cutting it down a bit and only shooting to read 6 books this month. Some of these books are quite thick. I also don’t want to put too much pressure on myself because then I don’t enjoy reading as much. Here is my April TBR! Heart…

March Wrap Up!

Hey Bookies! Sorry I’ve been so MIA! I took some time away to regroup and make sure I’m giving you guys the best quality of content I can’t. If you haven’t noticed, I changed my theme! I am very pleased with how it looks and I am eager to spend some much needed time improving…

Evermore by Sara Holland

Hey Bookies! I stayed up late Saturday night to finish Evermore by Sara Holland the second book in the Everless duology. I think the lack of sleep was well worth it. This story took me through a lot of ups and down. It was difficult for me to form a solid opinion about this book…

Everless by Sara Holland

Hey Bookies! I’ve finally read Everless! (Pops the streamers and opens the champagne) I’ve only had this book sitting on my shelf for over a year. I got it from Unicorn Crate February box 2018. I’ve kept saying I was going to read it and never freaking did but finally I have! And I must…

The Last Voyage of Poe Blythe by Ally Condie

Death Prefers Blondes by Caleb Roehrig

Hey Bookies! I am in love! This book was everything I expected and more! I have been reading Caleb’s books since his debut novel, Last Seen Leaving. When I heard he was writing a book about drag queens and a heist I was allllll over it! I preordered this book so quickly my computer almost…

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

Hey Bookies! I’m back! My trip to Ireland is officially over and I’ve spent this past week trying to get back to a normal routine. Unfourntly I missed posting twice this week which I was bummed about but I am here now! I was going to do a full post about my trip and adventures…

Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

Hey Bookies! My week in Ireland is officially over 😦 I am leaving today, I will compose a wonderful blog post about everything once I get home and catch some much-needed Z’s. Language of Thorns was definitely not what I expected. I was expecting more like short stories based in the Grisha world involving the…

The Wicked King by Holly Black

I. Am. Upset. I’m not even sure how to write this review without including spoilers. I will try my very hardest but you have been warned. The book starts off with Jude, the power-hungry mortal stuck in Fairie still controlling our once Cruel Prince, Cardan, who is now our Wicked King. And Wicked he truly…

The Vines We Planted by Joanell Serra

Hey bookies! Want to know something crazy? I’m leaving for Ireland today! I’ll be gone for a whole week and I am so excited! This is my first overseas trip. Got any tips for a newbie like me? I don’t know how much reading I will get done the week I’m gone but I did…

Author Q & A with Astrid Scholte

Hey Bookies! I have some very exciting news! Astrid Scholte, author of one of my favorite books this year, Four Dead Queens, was kind enough to agree to do an author interview with me! Guys, I was so happy when she said yes I was jumping up and down all around my room! I tried…

Love & War by Melissa De La Cruz

Hey Bookies! So far this year I have read 5 books! I am super proud of myself! Mind you I have gotten sick twice in this time, and that could be because I now stay up till midnight reading. But I have no regrets! Love & War by Melissa De La Cruz gave me mixed…

A Sorrow Fierce and Falling by Jessica Cluess

Hey Bookies! I read this book in two days, which still blows my mind. I haven’t read a book that quickly in a really really long time. And it’s not like I sat around all day reading. It was just that good of a book and also a really easy read. I find this whole…

Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare

This review contains spoilers! When you first open your copy of Queen of Air and Darkness and take off the dust jacket you will see a stunning illustration of the whole Blackthorn Clan. With Emma Carstairs leading the charge, the charge right into your heart. While you are reading this massive tome a book, you…

Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte

Hey Bookies! I’m not sure if I’m impressed with myself for reading two books already this year or disappointed that I’ve ONLY read two. I feel like last year I was able to read a lot more and a lot faster. I am beginning to think it is because I haven’t been reading any books…
