Hi everyone! I have something spontaneous, (hopefully) thoughtful, and reminiscent for you today! A review of my first reread of Twilight in about 13 years. Buckle up for some hot takes! If you are a millennial, a millennial’s mom, an … Continue reading Rereading Twilight 15-Years Later: A Legacy or Letdown?
Hi guys! I’m here today to talk about my most recent read (and my last one of 2019), Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor. This book was released in 2017 and had a huge amount of hyper surrounding it. I’ve … Continue reading Review: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Hello, fellow bloggers!
I’m here on this lovely Friday to bring you another double review. I feel like they make a lot of sense for books in a series, especially if I read them in sussession. Plus, I already had this lovely picture of the two of them together, so why not take advantage of that? 😉
As you see from the title and photo, this will be a review of the last two books in the Winner’s trilogy by Marie Rutkoski. I read the first book in this trilogy, The Winner’s Curse, back at the beginning of the year, I think February or March, and I really loved it. I read it from start to finish in one sitting. It was a beautifully written story about two characters who are so stubborn you just want to smack their heads together, but you grow to love and respect them for different reasons. Here is the link to the Goodreads page for first book. I gave it a solid 5/5 stars. Now, on with the reviews!

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
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.
