Book Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: Amazing ending to my favorite series. In My Opinion: MUST. READ. NOW! When I think of amazing conclusions, ACOWAR stands out. I simply loved the way Maas bookended so many aspects of this series, in a way that felt right and true to the characters and story line. And yet, she also left so many things open, either for readers to draw their own conclusions (if this was… Read more »

I’m a total creature of habit, so I don’t often have any new favorites, but I thought I’d share some from time to time when I’ve got a good amount. Here’s what I’m currently obsessed with at the moment: The Harry Potter Audiobooks: I have not read HP since well before the movies ever came out. I know, I’m terrible. It’s always so hard for me to reread books because… Read more »

1. Shine Itazura Stealing Panda Coin Bank: I think this is a cute little “gag” gift or just a fun one, really. If you look this up online, you’ll see that if you place a coin on that tray, the panda will pop out and grab it. I got this for my 12yo and even though we have a ton of piggy banks, I figured she’d get a kick out… Read more »
