Happy Sunday! So, I finally got around to reading a book that has a huge amount of hype around it. A book that has inspired obsession and late-night trips to the bookstore, extensive bookstagram posts and bookish tattoos. A book … Continue reading Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
What’s up, my book peeps?
I’ve been so busy with all the stupid adult responsibilities I have, I haven’t had time to read, post on bookstagram, or post here. It’s the lamest thing ever. Growing up isn’t all unicorns and free books, guys.
Anyway, in the small amount of free time I have, I’ve been looking around for inspiration for my next blog post (that’s this one!), and while I have a list of things I could write about, writing about coffee on a day when I could really use another cup seemed like fun. A few people I follow have done the Coffee Book tag, and while I feel like one of them might have tagged me (code for: I commented my undying love for the tag and they awkwardly told me I should give it a go 😂). So, I’m sort of tagging myself. But that’s okay because I’m an independent person. 😉 And since I haven’t technically been tagged, I’ll take the suffering away from you by tagging anyone who reads this who would like to do it! It’s perfect for a rainy day post, when you need a hot beverage. And on that note, is anyone else craving autumn? Or is that just me? It’s my favorite season for a reason, and while I like summer, it always feels a little too long.
Hello blog friends!
I was nominated for the Liebster award, which is an awesome award to help encourage the discovery of new blogs! 😊 Since the folks around here are lovely, I was nominated by two different blogs, meaning I have a lot of questions to answer. The rules of this award are simple:
- Thank to blogger(s) that nominated you
- Answer the 11 questions given to you in your nomination
- Nominate 5-11 bloggers who have less than 200 followers
- Inform those people that they’ve been nominated
- Give them 11 (mostly book-related) questions to answer
So, to start out, I was nominated by Aralyn from Paper Addictions and Magic. Read her post here. And awhile back (maybe an embarrassingly long time ago) I was also nominated by Lauren from Comma Hangover, and you can read her post here. Thank you so much to you both! You’re both amazing.💙
Since I have two sets of questions to answer here, I’ll start with Lauren’s.
So, yeah, I kind of wanted to claw her face off and spit in her skull. Graphic much? Straitlaced Ali piped up. Not graphic enough, Bloodthirsty Ali quipped. Hello, new personalities. So nice to meet you. ― Gena Showalter, The … Continue reading Quote Moment: The Queen of Zombie Hearts
It’s Tuesday again and I thought today I’d share the books I’ve bought recently! I have been on a bit of a book buying ban the last month, because I needed to give my bank account a break 😉 However, a bookworm can only hold off for so long. And since I’ve been to a bigger city nearby twice in the last week, I was able to visit the glorious landmark known as Barnes and Noble. Did I mention twice? In one week? It sounds too good to be true. So! Look below to see the newest editions to my shelf!
I really wanted to get this book because a good friend of mine @booksalamode on Instagram, just finished this book and she raved about how funny it is! And I also love The Princess Bride, and it’s been compared to that story as well. Plus, I love the creativity here. Taking a tragic part of history and giving it a new ending? I’m hope Lady Jane Grey would be proud.
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
Okay, so I was all set to do a Tidbit yesterday (it was Tuesday, after all), but I woke up and the Internet wasn’t working! And since we are a generation of techy people, it was a serious bummer 😂 I live out in the country, so the only things around me are fields of grass and cows. Not cell towers. Which means my phone internet is spotty and basically useless. The downside of remote locations! It did eventually get fixed and here I am. 😊 So, no harm done! I actually got a bit of reading in, too.
Since it’s no longer Tuesday, I thought I’d just turn my idea into a book talk, and discuss preordering with you!
Hello! I was tagged by the lovely Stephanie from @ignitingpages to do the Get to Know Me tag. And since I haven’t shared that much of myself with you guys in my posts, and I always think these are fun to … Continue reading The Get to Know Me Tag
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.
