The Ultimate Recommendations Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Today is a good day for a tag, no? I certainly think so! I was recently tagged by Danni @ _ForBooksSake in the Ultimate Recommendations Book Tag. This tag was created by Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx and it looked like too much fun to pass up. Let’s hope I do better with these recommendations than when people ask me in real life. Then, I usually freeze up and forget every book I’ve ever read 😂

Before I get to my post, if you haven’t checked out Danni’s blog, you should definitely give it a peek! She has a lot of great content, especially if you’re into thrillers and horror. And she’s also an incredibly be talented artist. Go give her a follow cause she rocks!

Now, let’s get to the tag!


Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you (Thanks, Danni!)
  • Answer all the questions down below
  • Pingback to the creator: Ellyn @ Allonsythornraxx
  • Nominate 5+ bloggers to do this tag

Prompts:

1 – A book from one of your favorite genres

The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

I’m probably not gonna shut up about this book for a good long while 😂I loved it so much! It’s a fantasy with flavorings of sci-fi that is absolutely captivating. It’s raw and dark and so compelling I found it hard to put it down! Excellent world-building, fascinating characters, and incredible writing all combined to make a book I won’t soon forget!

2 – A short book

A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers

Dex and Mosscap deserve all the rights forever and I will be hearing NO ARGUMENTS. I adored this short little book but my favorite part was definitely the characters. They brought such heart and joy to this story! Becky Chambers has a way of writing a book that just makes it so freakin’ cozy. Everything about this, from Dex striking out into the world as a tea monk to them meeting Mosscap, combined into a story that feels like a warm hug ❤

3 – A book-to-screen adaption

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

I’m gonna steal Danni’s answer because, honestly, is there a better adaptation than the Lord of the Rings movies? The three LotR movies directed by Peter Jackson are damn near perfection! I think it’s even more astonishing that all three of them are so freakin’ good. One, sure. Two, that’s pretty impressive. But all three?! Pure magic. To this day, I can still quote whole scenes from any of the movies off the cuff. I really want to re-watch them all now…

The Count To 10 With Me Book Tag

Hello, reader!

It’s Thursday which means it feels like a good time for a book tag! I was tagged by the lovely Danni @_ForBooksSake to do the Count To 10 With Me book tag. It looked like so much fun there was no way I wasn’t going to do it! So, of course, I want to thank Danni for tagging me ❤ This tag was created by The Bumbling Blogger’s partner on YouTube, so thank you to them, as well!

Now, let’s get to the post.


First Book In A Series

I feel like it’s been awhile since I’ve talked about Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko. It probably hasn’t been, but this is the first book that popped in my head! This is the first book in an incredible YA fantasy duology that has become an all-time favorite. The first book is definitely my favorite of the two. It’s immersive, engaging, and I found it very hard to put it down. I’ve re-read it so many times in the past two years which is a big deal for someone like me! I adore this book so much.

Two Or More Copies Of The Same Book

Welp, can’t use Raybearer again 😂 I’m gonna go with the book I have the second most copies of: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern! This is also an incredible book and an all-time favorite. That’s why I couldn’t resist when Illumicrate announced their 10th anniversary edition! It’s absolutely stunning and I’m still trying to find an appropriate place to display its majesty.

Three Colors On The Cover

I just picked a random one for this, but I do love how colorful the covers for the Heartstopper series by Alice Oseman are. I recently finished volume two, which is why it’s the one I picked, but they are all beautiful! Also, I adore Nick and Charlie and look at how happy they are, I can’t 😭 This is such a beautiful series that always has me in my feelings when I read it. I really need to watch the Netflix show now, I’ve been hearing such great things about it!

The Spring Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Today felt like a good day for a tag. I was recently tagged in the Spring Book Tag and, since it’s rather seasonal, I wanted to jump on it before I forget! Which I am wont to do at any moment in time, haha. This is a tag that celebrates one of my favorite seasons, as well, so I kinda have to do it, right? Right!

Thank you to the wonderful Ashlee @ Books Are 42 for tagging me. Not only does she have an awesome blog name, but incredible blog content, as well! I highly suggest checking her out if you haven’t already ❤ I, unfortunately, can’t seem to find who created this tag but, if you know, please let me know as well so I can give credit where credit is due.

Now, let’s get to the tag!


1. What’s on your Spring TBR list?

I’m attempting to stay on top of my ARCs, so my Spring TBR will be prioritizing Spring releases! Three of the top ones I want to get to are:

  • The Carnival of Ash by Tom Beckerlegge
  • The Merciless Ones by Namina Forna
  • Juniper & Thorn by Ava Reid

I’m so excited to read all of these! Cross your fingers that I actually manage to fit them all in 😅

2. If someone asked you for a spring release recommendation, what would it be?

Well, besides the ones I mentioned above, my most anticipated read of 2022 is Fevered Star by Rebecca Roanhorse. So of course that’s going to be my recommendation! I’ve been (im)patiently waiting for this sequel since finishing Black Sun and I need it in my grabby, little hands. Thankfully, it just came out yesterday, so I am this much closer to owning it and finally continuing the story!

3. Which two books coming out before summer are you eagerly awaiting?

Two books I’m so excited to read are The Marvellers by Dhonielle Clayton and Hide by Kiersten White. As you might be able to tell by the covers, we have very different vibes going on here. One features a magical school and the other features a very deadly game of Hide & Seek. Both sound like books I’m really going to love!

The 2021 Good News Book Tag

Hello, reader!

I haven’t done a book tag in awhile and I thought today would be a perfect day for one. I’ve been wanting to do the 2021 Good News Book Tag for a minute for two reasons. First, because I think everyone could hear a little good news about our world that is usually just negativity 24/7. And, second, because I really love the graphics that Laura @ The Corner of Laura made for it!

This tag was inspired by the 2021 Book Tag by Phoenix @ Books with Wings and tweaked to the one I’m doing by Laura herself. She wanted to make a tag that highlighted some of the good news stories that might have gotten lost amongst the bad in 2021. I want to thank her for tagging me, as well! Y’all should definitely give her blog a peek because she has a lot of great content.

Alright, let’s get to the tag!


The Rules:

  • Link back to the original creator (The Corner of Laura) and link back to this page (otherwise, the original creator won’t get a notification).
  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post (Thanks, Laura!)
  • (Optional) Use the graphics and don’t forget to credit the original creator (All the graphics were created by Laura @ The Corner of Laura)
  • (Optional) Tag 5 or more other people.

The Prompts:

Gay marriage was legalised in Switzerland:
A book with LGBT characters who live happily ever after

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune

It took me a second to think of an answer to this one and then I remember this gem of a book! Arthur and Linus are, hopefully, living happily ever after in their island orphanage! Both of them kicking up a fuss about the rights of magical children and then going home for some tea. This was such a heartwarming story and it made me want to read more from this author.

Giant Pandas are no longer classed as Endangered:
A book with a fantastic animal companion
NB: Giant pandas are still classed as Vulnerable but it’s progress!

Stones of Light by Zack Argyle

I really loved Asher and his bond with Laurel in this book, the sequel to Voice of War. Asher is a chromawolf (and featured on the cover) and it was incredible to see the way these two worked together. Also, I just love the concept of a giant, green wolf that could one day be my friend, okay? Asher is also a wonderfully loyal companion to Laurel, which is something she truly needs.

Studies show that the HPV vaccine has cut cervical cancer rates by almost 90%:
A book where science plays a big part

All Systems Red by Martha Wells

Well, the main character in this is made by science and they are protecting a bunch of scientists. So I think this fits perfectly! It’s also a good reminder that I really need to continue this series. I loved the first book so much and it’s all because of Murderbot. They are so wry and funny and intriguing! There are a lot of layers to Murderbot and I can’t wait to see more of them as I continue the series.

Meet the Book Blogger Take Two

Hello, reader!

Today felt like a good day for a book tag, so I thought I’d bring you the Meet the Blogger Book Tag version 2.0! I did this tag awhile back, but the questions were completely different. So now I’m gonna do this new version because it looks like fun and I was tagged by the wonderful Danni @ _ForBooksSake! You should definitely check out her blog if you’re looking for that good, bookish content and especially if you like a good thriller. Danni knows her stuff 😊

Alright, let’s get to the post!


The Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who tagged you (Thank you, Danni!)
  • Mention the creator Lauren @ Lala’s Book Reviews
  • Tag as many (or as few) people as you’d like
  • Have fun and get to know one another!

Introduction:

Introduce yourself!

Hello again, reader! I’m Kerri and I wear a lot of hats outside of the blogging world. I work as a medical laboratory scientist in microbiology and molecular which is both a lot of fun and a lot of work. I’m a mom to a 15 year old and an 8 year old which certainly keeps life interesting. I’ve been married to my husband for almost nine years (the mind, it boggles!) and I can’t imagine life without my weird, loving family.

Something most everyone wants to know…do you have any pets?

Of course! We have three cats; Felicia (our void kitty), Nelson (our grey boi), and Marmalade (our smooth-brained orange laddie). Our most recent addition is our pup-pup, Aspen, who is very much a mutt, but mostly lab… we think.

What is your favourite thing to drink?

I suppose my go-to beverage is boring, ol’ water because the military drilled the importance of staying hydrated into me. My favorite “treat yo self” beverage has to be hot chocolate! Preferably french vanilla hot chocolate 😋

What is your favourite season?

Spring and Summer! Basically whenever it’s warm because I live in New England and I hate being cold, lol. I also love when the plants and animals start to bloom/re-emerge after Winter. And I hate Winter so much I’m happy to see its backside. Winter is the WORST.

Do you have any special talents?

Err… not really? I do have a good singing voice and was in an All-State choir you had to be specially picked for when I was in fifth grade. I miss being in choir, honestly, which is probably why I randomly sing all. the. time. Seriously, you follow me around for a couple minutes and you’ll probably hear me sing 😂

Blogging:

When and why did you start your blog?

I wrote my first post in August of 2019, but I didn’t truly start blogging until around November of that year. Something like that! It took me a moment to gather my courage to actually start blogging for real. As for the why, I wanted some place where I could completely geek out about books and be among similarly minded people. Reading has always been my preferred hobby, but I really didn’t have anyone to talk to about it at length like I wanted to. Thus my blog came into being!

What is something that you wish you knew about blogging when you first started?

That, no matter how much I want to, I cannot do ALL the blog tours/review requests! When I first started, I tried to sign up for every, little tour I could and I tried to accommodate every review request that came my way. And I burned myself out super fast. I had to pull back within a few months because this thing I had created for fun was starting to feel like a chore. I certainly didn’t want that! There are still moments when I overbook (haaaaaaaa!) myself, but I’ve gotten better at keeping a good balance.

What has been the hardest part about blogging?

For sure making myself a blogging schedule and sticking to it. I still don’t have a schedule I’m happy with, though I am pretty proud of the fact that I have posted at least once a day since the beginning of 2022. That’s the goal, but I want to get to the point where I also have a day dedicated to blogging where I can write my posts for the week and schedule them. That way I don’t feel so stressed out during the week when I have work and chores and tons of other stuff to worry about. I will get there one day!

What has been the most rewarding part of blogging?

Oh definitely the friends I’ve made and the bookish community! This is absolutely my favorite corner of the internet and I’ve met some of the best people because of my blog. I’m so glad to have these awesome folks in my life.

Do you write your posts ahead of time or write them the day of posting?

Heh, I was just talking about this 😅 I try to write my posts ahead of the day that I want them to go up. Mostly because I’m usually pretty tired after getting home from work and it can take extra motivation to sit and write. That doesn’t always happen, though, so there are plenty of times I write posts the same day I post them. I’m hoping to get to a place where I can consistently schedule posts! Perhaps when life in general is less chaotic.

Reading:

Who are your top 5 favourite authors?

Oof, this is a tough one. Umm… this is subject to change and in no particular order, but we’ll go with:

  • Jordan Ifueko
  • Margaret Owen
  • Erin Morgenstern
  • Angie Thomas
  • V.E. Schwab

What genre do you read the most?

Most definitely fantasy! Fantasy will always be my first and one true love ❤

What genre surprised you by how much you love it?

Probably romance. I mean, I didn’t think I was going t absolutely hate romance, but I’m surprised at how much I’ve loved the ones I picked up so far. I should have explored this genre ages ago!

Which popular book didn’t live up to the hype for you?

Sigh… the answer right now has to be Witches Steeped in Gold. It pains me to say it, but I had a hard time getting into that one, so much so that I still haven’t finished it! I’ve heard it picks up later on in the book, but I just couldn’t motivate myself to continue. I’m hoping to pick it back up soon and re-attempt finishing it. Perhaps I’ll love it once I’ve actually read it.

Who are some popular authors you haven’t read?

There are tons, haha. I think the big two are Sarah J. Maas and Cassandra Clare. I do want to try a book by SJM but I honestly have no interest in the Shadowhunter books.

What upcoming release are you excited to read?

I can barely contain my excitement for R.F. Kuang’s newest novel, Babel, or the Necessity of Violence: An Arcane History of the Oxford Translators’ Revolution. And it’s not simply because I’m love with that long ass title 😂 This sounds like the dark academia book of my dreams! I may have pre-ordered the shiny Waterstones edition as soon as the author posted about it because I couldn’t resist! I can’t wait to have this book in my hands.

Do you listen to music while reading?

Usually, no, but I can listen to music while reading. I do sometimes enjoy the experience of it, as well. It can’t have words, though. If it’s music that I can sing along to, I’m gonna start singing and then my book will be forgotten, haha. I’ve been known to put on a lo-fi channel and just vibe and read, though.

Where else can we find you online?

Bookish Scenarios Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Having lost an hour of sleep last night because of Daylight Savings Time in the United States (can we just get rid of this please?) and working a full shift today, I am currently running on fumes. This is when I wish past-Kerri had thought ahead and scheduled a post… but alas! I have been burned by her once again 😂

What I’m trying to say is that I’m currently very much in ‘no thoughts, head empty’ mode, but I still want to do a post for today! When that happens, my go-to post type is a good ol’ fashioned book tag. Thankfully, I had two incredible bloggers, Jenny @ Jen Jen Reviews and Ashlee @ Books Are 42, tag me in the Bookish Scenarios Book Tag! Thanks for bailing me out for the day, y’all! If you’re not already following these two, you should definitely give their blogs a peek. They both create wonderful bookish posts that are a lot more coherent than my ramblings today are gonna be. They’re both also genuinely wonderful people ❤❤ This tag was originally created by LindsayHeartsBooks on YouTube.

Alright, let’s get to the post!


The Prompts:

You have to get rid of all your books and you can only keep ONE from each of these genres: Contemporary, fantasy, nonfiction and one other of your choosing. What books do you keeps?

This question is cruel! One of each? ONLY ONE FANTASY?!? Fiiiiine…

Contemporary: I’m not gonna cheat and pick a contemporary fantasy, though I am sorely tempted. Instead, I’m going to pick a book that made me realize I could enjoy a contemporary novel. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas was such an incredible read that it not only convinced me to not disregard all contemporaries, it re-sparked my interest in YA novels. It also helps that it introduced me to one of my favorite authors!

Fantasy: This one hurts. I have so many five star fantasies that I would want to keep! If it came down to only being able to keep one, though, I’d have to pick The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern. One, because it’s one of the few fantasy standalones on my five star list, haha. And, two, because I adore this book and this author and, of her two novels, this is definitely my favorite. I connected with this one on a deep level and I couldn’t imagine letting it go. It’s also signed!

Non-fiction: This is a bit easier as I honestly haven’t read a ton of non-fiction that I thoroughly enjoyed. One of the few non-fiction novels that I would love to keep on my shelves is Becoming by Michelle Obama. It’s a stunning memoir and by a person I truly admire. Of all the non-fiction I actually own, this would be the one I’d want to hang on to.

Reader’s Choice: I suppose I could sneak another fantasy on, at this point. But I’m gonna defy expectations! Kind of. You see, the book I’m picking could be considered a mystery or a thriller or fantasy. It’s also a new favorite and one that I already want to re-read! I recently read The Cartographers by Peng Shepherd for a blog tour and now I can’t stop thinking about it! It’s a clear sign I should keep it around, right? Right *nod*


You’re at the book store and you can hear a teenager telling their mother they don’t like to read, but their mother insists they pick something. You walk over and recommend a book you think is great for people who aren’t big on reading – what book is it?

I would need to know more about the teen before I could truly answer this question! What are their interests? Are the open to fantasy? Or do they like more realistic stories? Are they okay with romance? If I knew nothing about the teen in question, I would probably lean towards something contemporary as they are usually quick reads. I’d attempt to keep it light-hearted, as well. I think Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon could work! Even if the ending destroyed me 😭

The Romance Reader Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Today seems like as good a day as any for a nice book tag! This one is perfect for the month of February, as well. I know Valentine’s Day is over, but I still wanted to get this one end before the month of loooove was over. Why? Because it’s the Romance Reader Book Tag! Now, I’m still a novice when it comes to romance novels. I’ve only recently started actively picking them up more and trying to figure out what I like. That being said, I’ve been having a lot of fun exploring this genre and I’m eager to continue.

Before we get to the post, I want to thank the wonderful Ashlee @ Books Are 42 for tagging me! You should definitely go check out her blog if you haven’t already. I promise you’ll find something there to enjoy! I tried to discover who originally created this tag, but hit a dead end. If anyone knows, please share so I can give credit where credit is due!

Now, let’s get to the tag!


The Prompts:

What age did you start reading romance novels?

As I was thinking of the answer to this question, I was going to say I didn’t pick up a romance novel until fairly recently. I’ve read books involving romance for forever, but not something that was specifically shelved in romance. But then I recalled being a teen and discovering my mom’s collection of Amanda Quick novels! I can’t tell you for certain which ones I actually read (none of them have stuck in my memory) but I know I read at least a few. Then I avoided romances for years because, for some misguided reason, I thought all romances were like historical romances. It wasn’t until my 30s that I tried a couple of contemporary romances and found I didn’t hate it, lol. Now I’m happily digging into the genre more.

If you could pick one hero to meet from your favorite romance novels who would it be and why?

Oh, definitely Zafir from Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert! He’s such a giant teddy bear and I love how sweet he is with Dani. Besides, he would probably have good romance recs to keep me going on my romance reading journey! And he sounds like he wouldn’t be bad to look at for an extended period of time. There’s also the off-chance that he’ll bring Dani along and we can be nerds together!

The Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Today, I’m bringing you a challenge wrapped up in a tag and I’m so excited! Why? Because I love a good challenge and I love tags. So win-win! This one is probably gonna be quite difficult, too, as it relies on my very VERY bad ability to recall things off the top of my head. Like, when someone asks you for a book recommendation and all the books you have ever read are somehow miraculously forgotten.

That’s me, y’all, but I’m still going to attempt to do the Book Blogger Memory Challenge Book Tag! The rules are as follows: You have to answer the prompts without using the internet or looking at your bookshelves. Your answers have to all come from memory! Make sure to link to the person who originally tagged you and, once your done, you can tag five other people if you’d like.

I was tagged by the wonderful Tabitha @ Behind the Pages. You should all go check out her answers and her lovely blog. Maybe give her a follow while you’re over there! This tag was originally created by Laura @ Laura’s Book Reviews. Though the link I found doesn’t seem to work anymore, I still want to give credit where credit is due!

Alright, now let’s jump into the questions and see how I do 😄


The Prompts:

Name a book written by an author called Michael

The first book that came to mind was The Company of Demons by Michael Jordan. And you would not believe the mental gymnastics my brain went through to get to this one 😂 It started with me thinking of famous Michaels and ended with this. This is a thriller I won from either Goodreads or Bookish First (I think it’s the latter) and have yet to read because I’m terrible. It sounds interesting and it’s set near where I used to live in Ohio! I really need to pick it up at some point.


Name a book with a dragon on the cover

Oh, this was an easy one: Shadow of the Gods by John Gwynne! This book has been all over the bookish community since it was but a twinkle in John Gwynne’s eye and I distinctly remember when this cover was revealed. I took one look at it and knew I was going to read this book. Eventually. But, seriously, how can I resist such an epically cool looking dragon?! And the cover for the second book, though severally lacking in giant, scaled beasts, is just as incredible.


Name a book about a character called George

Look, all I’ve got is Curious George

I loved these books as a kid. As an adult, reading about George’s antics gives me ✨anxiety✨ I don’t know how the Man in the Yellow Hat takes it! Of course, he shouldn’t have a wild animal in a downtown hotel… but I digress! These are still fun books to read to my youngest.

The Cat Markings Book Tag

Cat Markings Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Today, I’m bringing you a tag that combines two of my favorite things: cats and books! This is The Cat Markings Book Tag, which was created by Laura @ The Corner of Laura. If y’all don’t know, I have three cats and my family has had cats since I was around five years old. I’ve grown up with this furry little predators all my life and I can’t picture myself ever not having a cat in the house. So, when I was tagged by Riddhi @ Whispering Stories to do this, I jumped at the chance! You should definitely go check out her answers to the tag and her blog, as well 😊

Alright, let’s get the post!


The Rules:

  • Link back to the original creator (The Corner of Laura) and link back to this page (otherwise, the original creator won’t get a notification).
  • Thank whoever tagged you and link back to their post (Thanks for the tag, Riddhi!)
  • (Optional) Use the graphics and don’t forget to credit the original creator (The graphics were also created by Laura @ The Corner of Laura)
  • (Optional) Tag 5 or more other people.

The Prompts:

Black Cat Banner

Black Cats: Pick a book that doesn’t get the love it deserves.

I’m going with Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine but, honestly, the entire Great Library series deserves so much more love than it gets! I’ve not met many people who have read it and that is a shame. It’s an incredible start to a fantastic series that centers around the concept of what the world could look like if the Library of Alexandria never burned down. It’s a fantasy, so it takes this idea in some intriguing directions. The best thing about this book/series, though, is the found family element. You’ll find yourself rooting for these characters in a surprisingly short amount of time!


White Cat Banner

White Cats: Pick a book with great disability rep

A book I read recently that jumps to mind is Our Bloody Pearl by D.N. Bryn. The main character in this story is a siren whose tail was crushed by a cruel sea captain. As a result, she no longer has any feeling below the waist. She has to learn how to manuver around in this new body and I think the author did an excellent job of conveying the feelings that can go with that situation. Of course, I would take my opinion with a grain of salt as I’m not part of the disabled community! I do think it was well done and it was great to see a MC with a disability being featured in a fantasy novel. I need and am going to make reading more books with disability rep a top priority.


Ginger Cat Banner

Ginger Cats: Name your favourite male character

Now I know The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern was not for everyone, but I adore this book. One of the reasons I adore it is because of the main character, Zachary Ezra Rawlins. I connected with him so much! He reminded of myself in college (although his experiences turned out to be vastly more interesting) and he had a lot of mannerisms that I share. He’s just such a quiet and unassuming protagonist and I thought it was compelling to see such an “ordinary” person get tossed into extremely extraordinary circumstances. Also, gotta love a fellow bookworm who loves gaming, as well.

Red (Taylor’s Version) Book Tag

Hello, reader!

Today on the blog, I’m bringing a music inspired book tag. This is the Red (Taylor’s Version) Book Tag as created by Tiffany @ Gazer of Books! Now, I’m not the biggest Swiftie, but I do like her a lot of her music. Folklore was on repeat in my car for an embarrassingly long amount of time. I also love her current project of redoing her old albums so they reflect how she really wanted them to sound. So, while I wasn’t waiting with bated breath for the release of the new and improved Red album, I still enjoyed it when it came out.

That being said, when Tiffany put out a call for bloggers who would like to be tagged, I jumped at the chance. Now, let’s put some music and get to the post!


The Rules:

  • Link to the original creator and her post: Tiffany from Gazer of Books
  • Declare the rules and list of prompts in your post (Feel free to copy the original format and graphics!)
  • Tag all the Swifties in your life!

The Prompts:

Red blurred background,text says: State of Grace - A Painful Romantic Love

State of Grace – A Painful Romantic Love

Though I don’t know how their romance will ultimately end, the first one that popped into my mind was Alyce and Aurora from Malice by Heather Walter. Everything in this story is conspiring against these two and it makes my heart hurt! I loved this story quite a bit and I’m eager to see how their love story will end in the sequel.


Red blurred background, text says: RED - A Book or Character That Makes You See RED

Red – A Book or Character That Makes You See RED

Ooo, do I get to talk about my hatred of Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë again? Because that book is the WORST! I apologize to all the WH lovers out there, but I hated this book so much, I “lost” it as soon as I was done with it. I liked literally nothing about it; not the characters, not the plot, not the writing. Everything about this book made me want to raaaaage. Ugh… never again…


RED blurred background, text says: Treacherous - A Book You Couldn't Help But Buy

Treacherous – A Book You Couldn’t Help But Buy

Definitely House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas. Look. I wanted to try a SJM book and this cover was very pretty.

I also came across it in a Target, I believe, and I just… couldn’t… resist! I snapped it up and now it sits on my TBR bookshelf with all of my other impulse buys 😂

Still, I am excited to read this one!
