TOG Marathon Finally Done!

Friends. This is my last post about the Throne of Glass series! I actually finished the series months ago, but this summer/fall has been... well you probably know because you've been living your own version of what I've been living. So, I don't think me taking months to write this post about a series I … Continue reading TOG Marathon Finally Done!

Ninth House: Quick Review

Finally a fantasy book for college students. Bardugo is my favorite author and I am ecstatic that she wrote a dark magical book that takes place at college. I've had a few college friends ask me for a fantasy book that wasn't about young teenagers. They wanted something more mature. I read Ninth House and BOOM … Continue reading Ninth House: Quick Review

We need more female knights: Quick Review

I have dreamed all my life of being a knight. I felt that Hazel desperately understood that desire. Because of Hazel's dream to also be a knight, I definitely connected with Hazel on a personal level. She literally lives in a fairytale and I was in love with this story and its characters from pretty … Continue reading We need more female knights: Quick Review

The Hate U Give

https://videopress.com/v/3yvXqSHW?preloadContent=metadata I've mentioned before that I'm not an audiobook gal. I have a hard time listening while doing other things in my life.

And they did an amazing job. https://videopress.com/v/bx3TAizu?preloadContent=metadata I can't decide if this book … Continue reading Dry: Because I needed another end of the world book

TOG Marathon Day 6: Tower of Dawn

Welcome friends to the second to last post of my TOG Marathon! We're almost there! It's been a long time coming, but are there really any rules about a blog post marathon? Maybe there are and I'm just a rule breaker. But we're BACK! https://videopress.com/v/nqLexUwD?preloadContent=metadata Going into this book, I wasn't sure about it. As … Continue reading TOG Marathon Day 6: Tower of Dawn

Thunderhead: the perfect follow up to Scythe

It's hard to put into words how good this series continues to be. The plot keeps expanding as Shusterman adds new perspectives. https://videopress.com/v/1dKjfT3Z?preloadContent=metadata I also really enjoyed getting to see the Thunderhead's perspective on not only what's happening currently, but it's perspective on EVERYTHING. I love that the Thunderhead is completely good. I'm not a … Continue reading Thunderhead: the perfect follow up to Scythe
