He loves so wholly. It is his nature. He blinks, then tries to find the right response. “I-” he stumbles. “I’m so afraid, June. So afraid of what might happen to-” I put two fingers against his lips to hush … Continue reading Quote Moment: Champion
I have another review for you guys today! I was looking at the website Netgalley the other day because used to use the website a fair bit until a few months ago. At that time I’d requested and received a couple books I ended up not finishing cause I didn’t really like them. Since I didn’t finish them, I also didn’t review them. Which if you’ve ever used Netgalley, you know is a bad thing. The whole point is to receive advanced copies of books in exchange for reviews. So, I haven’t shown my face around that website in awhile. 😉 But decided to go back, because I really likd it! I thought I’d try to make myself seem like less of a schmuck by downloading a couple “read now” books (these are books you don’t need the publisher’s approval to receive. They are there for the downloading if you have an account with Netgalley) and review those, so publishers know I’m back in the game.
Anyway, long story short, the first book I chose was Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet by Charlie N. Holmberg, the same author who write the Paper Magicians trilogy. I really want to read those books too, but that’s another topic. This book was listed as an adult fantasy novel, which seemed interesting, and I also love the cover. The description made this book sound whimsical and magical. Sort of a fun fairytale type of story. It’s about a woman who has no memory of her past or heritage, but can bake emotions into her pastries. She can make you feel strong, loved, happy, hopefully, and lots of other things by infusing her magic into your morning muffin. Now, I’m a small-time baker, so I loved this concept from the beginning. If you’d like to read the entire book synopsis, click here for the Goodreads page.
I posted a few days ago about winning an ARC of It Ends With Us and how I was so excited to read it, as I’d never read a Colleen Hoover book before. Now that I’ve read it, I’m wondering if her books come in a boxset or something, because I loved this book so much. Since I received this book in a contest and not in exchange for a review, I won’t include any spoilers. Especially since this book hasn’t been released yet. 😉
If you don’t know what this book is about, here is the synopsis from Goodreads and click here to visit the Goodreads page:
Hello, bloggers and readers!
I finished reading The Last Star two days ago. This book is the third and finally book in The 5th Wave trilogy. If you don’t know what The 5th Wave is about, here is the Goodreads page. There is also a movie adapted from the first book. I saw it and liked it pretty well. I felt the movie left out a lot of the humor and intrigue/mystery, which were two of the aspects I loved most about the book. However, I liked the casting (Hello Evan Walker, you sexy thing) and they didn’t deviate from the storyline too excessively. But I’m getting off track, cause this wasn’t meant to be a movie review. But now it kind of is 😂 Oh well.
So, my point up there was supposed to be that I absolutely loved the first book in this trilogy, and that the second book was just okay. I’ve got to hand it to these books though, because they’ll keep you guessing about what you believe up until the last page. Since I didn’t love the second book and the plot twists it took, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this final installment. I was worried the ending would be rushed or wouldn’t offer me closure. The book also isn’t very long, which had me even more worried. However, I’ve gotta tell you guys, I loved the whole book.
Okay, so I finished this book a couple weeks ago, two days after it came out (because yes, I bought it the day of its release at Costco so I didn’t have to wait for shipping if I pre-ordered 😂), but I haven’t written a review. The reason for that is, I always think writing reviews for more popular books isn’t in that high of a demand, because isn’t everyone else also writing a review? But, my last review for Shadow and Bone seemed popular, and I consider that a “popular” book too. So maybe I should rethink things. Or just post a review even if there are lots of reviews, because my views are important too! 😉 Right?
Hey guys! Review time!
I recently finished reading Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. It is the first book in the Grisha trilogy. I really enjoyed the book, but before I get into the specifics, here is a synopsis of the book from Goodreads if you don’t know much about it:
I was given an ecopy of this wonderful book by the author for an honest review. I will also be posting a YouTube video review, but I wanted to spread the word about how much I loved this book, so here is a written review too! 😊 There are some spoilers in this review, so be warned! Also, this book does contain some fairly graphic sexual scenes. They are written very tastefully, but just a warning to younger readers. You know what you can handle.

Hey guys! Having just finished this books moments ago, I can say while I’m high off the emotions of the final pages, I adored this book. Everything about it was completely satisfying. Holly Black has a beautiful writing style that … Continue reading Mini Review: The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
Hello, book loving friends! It has been an embarrassingly long time since I posted a review. Part of this is because of my busyness, and thus laziness when it comes to reviewing, and another part is because I’ve been seriously considering going into BookTube, so I’ve been thinking I’ll just save my reviews for then. However, I still haven’t found the time to start a YouTube channel, so I figured I’d better quit putting it off and review some books! So, the book I’ll be reviewing today is a book I found on the Amazon kindle store, in their unlimited … Continue reading Mini Review: How I Found You by Gabriella Lepore
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I’ll be honest. Going into this book, I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it. Not because I didn’t think the synopsis sounded promising, but because this book is pretty far out of my usual reading comfort-zone. It’s an adult romance novel, set in a Christian town. All of those things are very unrelated to my usual reading habits ;). However, once I started reading, I was instantly pulling into this story. I really enjoyed reading from this main character’s perspective. Jill has a very real narrative in … Continue reading ARC Mini Review: Return to Me by Taylor W. Law
