April Wrap-Up

May 2, 2017

So, I’m blogging from my phone because my landlord still doesn’t offer Internet. On the upside, I’m reading much more than I usually do. I read 5 books this month which is a record for me. I’m halfway done with Trylle #3 as I type this. It’s hard to say that I have a favorite from the bunch. Most were all 3 star reads, which means that I liked and enjoyed them, but they’re not amazing. I’m looking forward to finishing The Selection series, Trylle series, and Dorothy Must Die series. My least favorite was definitely The Thousandth Floor, which I gave 2 stars for reasons I can’t even remember now. Disappointing because I was…

Quarterly Wrap-Up

April 9, 2017

This is my first quarterly wrap-up because it’s been over 3 months since the last time I wrote a blog. It’s been longer than that but I’m not going to think about what I didn’t do in 2016.  I’m a terrible, terrible blogger now but it is what it is. So here’s my wrap-up for January, February, and March. Books I’ve Read in 2017… So Far My favorite book so far (and probably for the rest of this year) is The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. If you live under a rock and haven’t heard about this book yet, it’s a fictional but very accurate account of the Black experience in America, for those of us…

October Rewind: Book Haul, Reviews, & Recap

November 1, 2016

Omari and the People by Stephen Whitfield Iron Cast by Destiny Soria I only finished two books in October, both were for blog tours or else I probably wouldn’t have struggled to finish those either. Iron Cast was my favorite of the two. I really loved the characters, the early 1900s setting, and the gritty crime noir feel. I also started A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas. I’m a little over 50% done as of writing this post. I’m still having mixed feelings about this series overall. I liked ACOTAR in the end, but I’m having the same trouble with ACOMAF that I had with that one, which is just that…

Okay, I’m going to attempt to do my first ever wrap up post which consist of books I received this month, a recap of posts from this month, and a little lifestyle update (i.e. just talking about my boring life), and a little look into what’s ahead for July, including my tbr.
