Hi book dragons! I hope you all have had a wonderful summer. I took a bit of a hiatus the last few months due to some crazy life changes, including getting a dog!! I would like to introduce you all to my baby, Fable!!
I read this book several months ago (which was a bit behind the bandwagon even then) and had a rough review written and accidentally forgot to publish it! Oops! But finally I present to you all my book review of Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda!!!
Hello my book dragons! Last year I thought it would be fun to release a list of books about the environment on Earth Day, and I enjoyed it so much I decided to do it again! I compiled a list of another 25 books to read this Earth Day!
Hello my book dragons! I hope you're all having a wonderful day! I was browsing through a few people's posts and found this Coffee Book Tag on Starlight Book Tales and thought it looked like a lot of fun! So I'm here today, sipping on some coffee in my Harry Potter mug, to answer some fun questions. So grab yourself a cup of joe, sit back and enjoy!
In my previous post, The 4 Things I did to Break My Writer's Block, I mentioned that I reread books as part of getting out of my writing slump. Die for Me was one of the books I decided to try rereading. I first read this book around the beginning of high school and absolutely adored it. I was curious to see if my opinion of the book had changed over the years, or if I still thought it was amazing. When I first read this book, years ago, I would have given it 5 stars and a full on fangirl rant. After rereading it however, I found that it didn't exactly match with my memory.
Hello and happy Saturday! Who here is a Game of Thrones fan? I only recently began watching it (due to many of my friends continuously harassing me - for good reason as I soon learned), and I've already binged through the first 6 seasons! I'm trying to spread out the last season as much as possible, but it is an absolutely addicting show!
Hi my lovely book dragons! It has been a minute since I last posted. I ended up experiencing a bit of a writing slump. Between my blog, my personal writing and my academic writing, I just became exhausted and slammed up against a wall.
This book series is absolutely blowing me away. When I reviewed Throne of Glass (which you can find the review of here), I had a million thoughts running through my head. I was lost for words for a good couple of weeks. I wish I was kidding. I figured reviewing the rest of the series would be easier. I was wrong. So very wrong.
I've mentioned my love of Colleen Houck's book series, Tiger's Curse, on my blog before (you can find the post here). I absolutely adored this series and I still reread the series to this day. I was practically ecstatic when I heard she came out with another series and rushed to get my hands on a library copy.
