Hey Everyone! I've been super busy reading and helping choose the finalists for the young adult fiction and young adult speculative fiction categories for the CYBILS awards. (Which you can see here and here!). I've also been taking some time to be with family and slowing down my reading since I was sprinting at the … Continue reading December Monthly Wrap Up
That's right! I've read over 75 books this year and am still going! I'd like to thank a year of COVID and being a CYBILS panelist for this achievement. Henna Wars By Adiba Jaigirdar This was an interesting romantic-coming-of-age-addressing-racism book. It also took place in Ireland I found that fact fun and I thought I'd … Continue reading November Wrap Up: finished my reading goal!
Overall this month was full of surprises as all these books were so amazing! I highly recommend all of them! Also I got to read some really good "spooky" or strange reads! Winterwood By Shea Ernshaw I thought this was a beautifully written witchy fairytale perfect for Halloween or winter. I highly recommend reading it … Continue reading October Wrap Up: the month of books blowing past my expectations
Woah. September was a way more productive reading month than I had thought it would be. Of course, four of these books I read for school. It always helps to have mandatory reading to increase your monthly reading numbers. BUT I'm really excited to get to talk about these books because I haven't written posts … Continue reading September Wrap Up
I am so happy to announce that I will be participating in Cybils again this year as a round 1 panelist for young adult fiction! I am so excited for the opportunity to read so many of the amazing books that were published in the past year. I got to be a panelist last year … Continue reading CYBILS YA PANELIST!
I don't write about books I don't finish or didn't enjoy. I prefer to put more positive reviews and discussions of books out into the world because I want people to read books and I want to encourage authors since writing is freaking hard. However, I do think it's interesting to know what books people … Continue reading DNF and books that weren’t for me #2
What was your favorite book you read this month? Let me know in the comments and I'll tell you mine! I've never done one of these, but I thought it would be a fun way to post more and allow people to get a more wholistic view of what I read during a month. I … Continue reading August Wrap Up
So, I'm sort of an adult although I don't always feel like one. I LOVE YA books I don't foresee myself not reading them any time soon. However, I think I'm ready to start venturing into adult fiction. I want to read about 20 somethings since that's where I am at in my life, but … Continue reading Adult Section Recommendations: I need help!
I'm a little late to this, and when I say a "little" I mean a lot. I watched Regan at Peruse Project do this on a video from late 2019. I thought it was an interesting exercise in picking favorite books. Like Regan, I am choosing books based on their publication year, not when I … Continue reading Fav YA books 2010-2019
Grace Year by Kim Liggett is a crazy book because it’s frighteningly believable and mind blowing. It’s a combination of Lost, Handmaid’s Tale, and The Village. If you’re a fan of any of those you need to pick this book up! I read it for CYBILS YA SPEC FIC 2019 and it blew my mind!
