Book Review: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Book Review: Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★

This is definitely a different kind of read. I don’t think I’ve read many ghost stories but I like that this one is told from a male’s POV and that it’s about a ghost hunter and a ghost who obviously develop feelings for each other. How they meet and fall for each other is pretty interesting and definitely not a “love at first sight” kind of deal. What I was… Read more »

Book Review: Untouched by Jus Accardo

Book Review: Untouched by Jus Accardo

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

Yes! A novella from a male’s POV. You all know how I’m a sucker for that, lol. And this one was even better because it was told from Kale’s POV, which is very different because he wasn’t exposed to the “real world” until recently and is basically learning how society works through a fully cognitive mind, unlike how we would learn it growing up from babies. The way Kale views… Read more »

Michigan Does Not Like Me

Michigan Does Not Like Me

On My Mind 0

DON’T drive from Pennsylvania to Michigan because something like this might happen to your car: I’m in Michigan. For school. And considering that I wanted to bring a ton of stuff with me and the hours didn’t SEEM so bad, I decided to drive here. Well, let me tell you I was not so lucky. I barely made it out of Philly when a stupid rock hit my windshield! FML!!!… Read more »

Love This Cover! #4

Love This Cover! #4

Prodigy – How awesome is this cover?! I’m so in love! It fits perfectly with the first book, Legend, but it also has a darker appeal to it. I love the darker, more silver/gray colors since Legend had more gold in it. The bird symbol looks stunning as well and when I first laid eyes on it, I was just in awe. Can’t wait to read it! This highly anticipated… Read more »

Thank You For Being An Amazing Man

Thank You For Being An Amazing Man

Marriage 2

After reading this post from Jill at Baby Rabies about her having to sometimes be a single parent while her husband travels for work, it got me thinking about my situation and how amazing it is that I have such a great support system and a man who is such an amazing father and husband. Being in Medical School kind of sucks because I’m always traveling, either studying or doing… Read more »

Book Review: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Book Review: Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins

Young Adult Book Reviews 1 ★★★★

Rachel Hawkins, you’ve done it again! I loved this book! It’s easily just as good as the first, which is often a difficult task to accomplish. Hawkins does a great job at delving deeper into Sophie’s family history and tons of new characters show up that really cause a stir in just the right way. Sophie meets some more demons, who turn out to be quite a problem, but nothing… Read more »
