  • Wunderkids Part 1 by Jacqueline Silvester

    YA Costumes that are already in your closet!

    Hey everyone! This is my first Blog Tour that I’m on and I’m so excited to be sharing Jacqueline Silvester’s latest release of Wunderkids, Part One of Wildwood Academy. On this day of the Blog Tour, Jacqueline and I have both teamed up to figure out some awesome and easy YA costumes that you can easily put together for any Halloween bash. There is a part of the novel where there is a big Halloween party, and it mostly inspired this list if there were to be a Halloween Party for YA bookworms. Most of the stuff you should already have in your wardrobes or they’re very inexpensive to buy in shops! Read More

  • Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh
    -
    A Warrior Is Never Weak

    Flame in the Mist was a good read but it only excited me near the end. Flame in the Mist had so much potential, but I think between a plot that didn't engross me until the final third and a handful of bland characters (they aren't food, Joel), it failed to meet my hopes for the story. It was still a good read though, don't get me wrong. Ahdieh's descriptive prose painted wonderful pictures in my mind of the beautiful forests in Feudal Japan and I loved some of the characters. But, I definitely believe that Flame in the Mist could've been better. Read More

  • Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo
    -
    My Heart is Not The Same

    Crooked Kingdom took my heart and ripped it to shreds. I wasn't prepared, although I don't think you ever be prepared for the events that occurred in Crooked Kingdom. Leigh Bardugo's writing was on point, her characters were on point and the story was just asdfghjkl. There's just something about the way that Bardugo writes that has me so engrossed within the world she creates. Seeing the many choices each of the characters had to face was interesting, it definitely exposed some of their underlying issues and the problems they still had to face. This further emphasized many of the obstacles they still had to face, that Six of Crows wasn't the end of their problems. For some of them, it was merely the beginning. Read More

  • Wonder Woman & Hearts for Sale?
    August Unboxings

    Hey readers! I'm introducing a new feature to my blog, which is my monthly unboxings of subscription boxes. I usually do these unboxings on my Instagram story. But, I decided to also post them on my blog for people who don't have Instagram or miss my story. Throughout the month of August, I received two book subscription boxes from Owlcrate and Illumicrate. I was anticipating their arrival for since I had ordered them / was sent them as part of being a rep. For those who aren't aware of book subscription boxes, these companies curate a box, sometimes according to a theme and bookworms/book dragons (such as myself) subscribe to them and they're made on a scheduled basis.

  • Heart of Mist by Helen Scheuerer
    -
    Deadly Mists, Female Warriors and an Author Interview!

    Heart of Mist was outstanding all in all. It's plot, characters, and world building was fantastic. When you have a story you don't want to let go of, it's quite hard to say goodbye to it. This is exactly the impression Heart of Mist had on me. A world surrounded by a deadly mist which leaves everyone at risk, but the true enemy might be within their boundaries? One world which contains badass female warriors that have a strict system of combat and power? The world where everything is never perfect and each character deals with their own struggles, no matter their age? COUNT ME IN. Read More

  • The Month of Camp NaNo
    July Recap & August Plans

    This month was a bit of a busy one which was to be expected. From participating in Camp NaNoWriMo all the way to the last minute decision to join in BookTube-A-Thon, I had a pretty busy month. It's definitely taught me a lot about time management and how I can better schedule myself in the further months to come. Read More

  • Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
    -
    Games of Power and Deceit are always my Favourite

    I don't want any of the queens to be devoured, however, because I love them all. Three Dark Crowns was an incredible story, and knowing Kendare Blake's wonderful prose from her Anna series, I knew she wouldn't disappoint in this first installment in this new series. My excitement for One Dark Throne is real, and I cannot wait to see where this series is taken to next. Read More
