The Knowing by Sharon Camero..

The Knowing by Sharon Cameron

4.5 Nuts Somehow between all the craziness in my life I’ve managed to read one book, and that book was all I needed. I’d rather read one amazing book in the small amount of time I have than blast through a thousand ok ones. So in picking up a new book when I’m this buy […]

Zombiecorns by John Green

Zombiecorns by John Green

3 Nuts How is it that John Green even makes a stupid zombie corn novella sound pretentiously beautiful even when it is hurried and uncopyedited? Forget about your feelings about the guy for a minute and consider how a random charity project he put out for free is better written then like half of what […]

Beasts Made of Night by Toch..

Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

2.5 Nuts You know that feeling when you want to love a book and you just can’t? When your expectations have been dashed at you feet and you just stand there sadly, mourning what could have been? That’s what this book is for me. First, the cover is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a big part of […]

I have no idea where I originally found this as it was so long ago… I probably should have written it down. But this, my friends, is the Pokemon Go Book Tag   Starters: The book that started your love for reading. I feel like this one is going to be obvious… Actually I read […]

Discussion: Judging a Book By Its Cover

  Everyone always says “don’t judge a book by its cover” which, while I understand is not actually about books, is something we totally all do. How many of you see a cover reveal and check out a book description just because the cover looked cool? What about at the bookstore? Do you ever pick […]

Cabin Pressure- Out of the P..

Cabin Pressure- Out of the Pages

  My slight obsession with the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch is hardly a secret. When I first got Spotify I searched his name and listened to him read a couple of short stories and his velvety smooth voice and practically melted. And then I discovered this radio play called Cabin Pressure. Radio plays aren’t very […]

Rosemarked by Livia Blackburne

4.5 Nuts When I was sent this book from the lovely people at Disney I was told that it was a special book that the publicist was very excited about. So of course I have no self control and had to read it immediately instead of reading the books I had in my TBR for […]

Last Olympian by Rick Riorda..

Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

4 Nuts Of all the books in the Percy Jackson series (at least this first set), LAST OLYMPIAN is my favorite. It’s probably also arguably the best as well. After 4 books of build up and hard work Riordan has completed the first series in this world. But really it is only the beginning. This […]

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Hunted by Meagan Spooner

3.5 Nuts When it comes to fairy tale retellings I think I have a type. Because it seems like the majority of the ones I pick up are Beauty and the Beast. Now add a Belle character who is a boss at archery and, yep, I’m good with that. The first thing that drew me […]

Artemis Fowl: The Opal Decep..

Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception by Eoin Colfer

3.5 Nuts Warning, spoilers, because I’ve got some stuff to say. This book the the 4th in a series, and it is about this point that I started TECHNICALLY growing out of the age grow for this series. But I was stubborn and loyal, and continued on until the last two books (which I now […]
