The Winner’s Crime Read-Along: Week 4 – Chapters 34-46

The Winner’s Crime Read-Along: Week 4 – Chapters 34-46

Books 0

My Thoughts on Chapters 34-36 What an ending! My heart is breaking so much for Kestrel and Arin. Things got even more complicated and I just don’t know how we’re all going to recover from this. Quite a few deaths occur that really pissed me off and even more secrets are revealed. I’ll just warn you all that that ending was a bit of a cliffhanger. I need more now!… Read more »

Blog Tour: Book Review – Shaken, Not Stirred by Sawyer Bennett

Blog Tour: Book Review – Shaken, Not Stirred by Sawyer Bennett

Blog Tours, New Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★★

One Line: If only Tenn Jennings could prove me wrong! In My Opinion: Add to cart! Let me tell you, since the very first book in this series, I have been dying to get to Casey’s story. This vivacious, strong-willed, stubborn girl sparked my interest from the very beginning and I was definitely impatient to see what was behind those pretty walls. Her story, although not exactly what I pictured,… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 31 – High Maintenance Kind of Girl

Project BG3: Week 31 – High Maintenance Kind of Girl

BG3, Project BG3 2

In true BG3 fashion, we have learned that this girl does not care for jarred baby food. Nope! She prefers her food pureed at home, fresh and the old-fashioned way. When we first started giving her jarred baby food after stepping it up from the rice puree, I just thought she didn’t like eating anything but the rice puree. I was worried. But, since I use veggies and all for… Read more »

Book Review: Fall With Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Book Review: Fall With Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout

New Adult Book Reviews 5 ★★★★½

One Line: Can Reece be real, please? In My Opinion: Add to cart! Yet another case of JLA goodness. Fall With Me definitely made me fall and I honestly think I liked this book more than Stay With Me, even if both books had similar elements. Despite my issues with Roxy, which I’ll discuss, something about their chemistry and the suspense aspect of the book just clicked for me and… Read more »

The Winner’s Crime Read-Along: Week 3 – Chapters 21-34

Books 0

My Thoughts on Chapters 21-34 Ack! I spoke too soon. This latter third of the book has a bit of a lull in it. It just didn’t move as fast or seamlessly as the first half. But, things do happen. Poor Arin and Kestrel are separated once again, each diving deeper into self-proclaimed missions. I have no idea what’s going to happen to Arin, but I fear for Kestrel more…. Read more »

Book Review: King by Ellen Oh

Book Review: King by Ellen Oh

Young Adult Book Reviews 2 ★★★★½

One Line: An excellent ending to an amazing series that has easily become one of my favorites. I’ve enjoyed this series from the very beginning and I’m pretty sad to see it end. I loved that Oh kept the momentum going throughout the series, keeping me glued to the stories and invested in the characters. Prophecy introduced readers to a great set of characters, especially Kira, and I loved seeing… Read more »

Book Review: Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott

Book Review: Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott

Young Adult Book Reviews 6 ★★★

One Line: What started out a little weak turned into a pretty decent read with a strong ending. What I Loved: The best part of this book was easily the Pandoras. I loved them all. Such fun, interesting creatures. Their relationship with their humans reminded me of Pokemon, that’s how I picture their dynamic in my head. Tella definitely reminds me of Ash, how she cares for her Pandora, for… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 30 – Stranger and Separation Anxiety

Project BG3: Week 30 – Stranger and Separation Anxiety

BG3, Project BG3 4

Oh, the anxiety is strong in this one. You know I talked about how she would cry whenever I leave the room?! Well, it’s gotten more intense lately. If I’m not in her line of sight, she starts to whine and cry. It isn’t nearly as bad when there are others, like her dad or sisters, around her, and they can easily distract her, but once she sees me again,… Read more »

Bookish Events: ApollyCon 2015

Bookish Events 8

I am SO late in getting this post up, but better late than never. ApollyCon was definitely an event to remember. Even though I’ve volunteered for events in the past, I’ve never really been THAT in on the action. This time though, especially on the actual event day, I was practically Damaris’ right-hand girl. Overall, I think the event was a success. Yes, there were some kinks, especially with the… Read more »
