#ArmchairBookExpo Day 5: Wrap-Up

So it seems that ArmChair Book Expo is over already! This week was a little crazy for me so I wasn’t able to participate as much as I would have liked, but I did win something! On the first day, I posted on Instagram for the #thisisme prompt and was awarded a Reflections: Poems and Stories paperback! It saddens me that I wasn’t able to […]

#ArmchairBookExpo Day 2: What Do Readers Want

Today, one of our topics for Armchair BEA is What Do Readers Want and I figured I could talk about what I look for in books, how I rate them, and basically what speaks to me as a reader. I’m one of those horrible book lovers who buys books based on covers. I can seem to help it! Those pretty covers are just too tempting to […]

#ArmchairBookExpo Day 1: Introducing Tia

Armchair Book Expo is an online event that takes place for those of us who are unable to attend BEA in New York. There’s giveaways, twitter chats, blog hopping, and more!

Review – The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas

This book…THIS BOOK…I honestly have no idea where to start and I’m not even sure if I can make this review anything other than gush. Before I continue, I just want to state that these opinions are my own and I will try and convey them in the best way possible, however, I encourage you to seek out reviews of this amazing book that are […]

Review – We Are Okay by Nina LaCour

Throughout this entire novel I wasn’t sure how I felt about it and that’s never happened before! I’m usually able to tell how I feel about the book within the first 50 or so pages, but with We Are Okay, it took me until I sat down to write this review to figure out what I was going to rate it. I really liked We […]

Review – It Started With Goodbye by Christina June

I’m not sure what went wrong with this one. I was able to read it in a day (which is rare for me these days), I wasn’t terribly bored with it, and I thought the idea for it was good. But I had trouble really connecting with a lot of the characters. I also had trouble remembering what actually happened. I think that is really […]

Review – Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

So going into Gemina, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t even know if they were going to be the same characters from the first book or not! I wanted to be totally surprised going into this (I’m actually that way with a lot of books). I was not disappointed. I absolutely loved this one! It was heartbreaking, intriguing, and left me wanting more. […]
