This book's cover has been on my radar and I say that because I have seen the cover around but I hadn't read the description. When I did, I immediately checked it out at my library. I've recently been really into stand alone books and new/recreating fairy tales--so this book seemed perfect. It's been a … Continue reading House of Hollow Review: eerie and unexpected–a great spooky season read
Hello friends! The Children's and Young Adult Bloggers' Literary Awards is looking for bloggers who review children's and/or young adult literature! I've been a panelist for two years for young adult fiction and speculative fiction and it's been a great experience! I get to read so many more books that I wouldn't naturally come across. … Continue reading The CYBILS Awards is looking for bloggers!
Now that July is almost over I think I'll post my June wrap up, lol. This is very late and overdue, but it's been that kind of month. In good news, I got a job. In bad news I have not been reading much at all. This is probably one of the lowest reading periods … Continue reading June 2021 Monthly Wrap Up
I graduated from college this month and I had a book hangover from Rule of Wolves so that all affected my reading this month. I've also been in the mood for a good YA romance but haven't been able to find one that caught my undivided attention. However, I DID manage to get some reading … Continue reading May 2021 Wrap Up: graduating college and indecisive reading
This month flew by and I feel as if I spent a lot of it trying to figure out what I wanted to read. It ended up being a reread month in preparation and celebration of "Shadow and Bones" releasing and my Rule of Wolves hold coming in. Prepped By Bethany Mangle This book had … Continue reading April Monthly Wrap Up: A Month of Bardugo
Half way through my goal! I might increase it, but I go through reading phases, so I think I'll wait to see if I reach it early. I rated almost all of these books with four stars which I find delightful since March is all about St. Patrick's day for me. That means four leaf … Continue reading March Wrap Up: Half Way Through My Reading Goal
This month was more about class books than books I read for pleasure. I have a lot more reading this semester than I did last semester, so I can't squeeze in as many books I want to read. I have started listening to more audiobooks while I walk to work which is nice. I'll also … Continue reading February Wrap Up
From October to the end of December I work on reading strictly CYBILS books and books for class. So, once the first round of judging ended, I went hard for all the books I'd been putting on my TBR during those months. January was a great month of reading and I enjoyed all the books … Continue reading January Monthly Wrap Up
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!
