Hogwarts House Book Recommendations

Hogwarts House Book Recommendations

September is upon us (yikes) and I don’t know about you, but this time of year always makes me nostalgic for Harry Potter. Since we’re all getting ready to board the Hogwarts Express and cozy up in our house common rooms, I thought I’d share a few recommendations based on the four Hogwarts Houses. So there will be two books to go to each house, along with which Harry Potter book I feel exemplifies each house the best. The Gryffindor […]

DNF Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

DNF Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

I made it about one third of the way into An Enchantment of Ravens before I gave up. It’s not that this was overtly terrible or anything, but it was so.. shallow and unfulfilling. There was so much potential here and it simply did not live up to it, despite the engaging opening and funny main character. The biggest complaint I have is the lack of emotional depth. Though the relationship between Isobel and Rook took a few weeks or […]

ARC August: Week 3

ARC August: Week 3

I’m back for my weekly challenge check in for ARC August.

Book Review: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

Book Review: The One That Got Away by Melissa Pimentel

I kind of took a chance on this book. For one thing, it’s a Persuasion retelling and I’ve never read the source material. For another, it’s an adult contemporary romance, a genre from which I’ve read exactly zero books. Oh, and on top of that, I’ve never read a second-chance romance. The One That Got Away is all of these things I’m inexperienced with, but the blurb sounded cute and the setting of a castle in England sounded great. And […]

Alexia’s Recent DNFs

The Wood by Chelsea Bobulski. I was really looking forward to this book and was so excited when a fellow blogger wanted to unload her copy. It looked really good and I was expecting to love it. Unfortunately, after a few chapters, I realized this book wasn’t for me. I was feeling nothing for this book and the characters didn’t interest me at all. The Rattled Bones by S. M. Parker. Now this one I was super psyched for and […]

Book Review: Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger

Book Review: Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger

You know, I kind of had low expectations for Follow Me Back. I’ve not gotten along with any other WattPad success stories, so I was a bit apprehensive going into this. But I was so wrong, because from page one I was completely addicted to this story. The easy reading, the social media aspect, so much of this was incredibly compelling. I really enjoyed the way this depicted fame for pop singer Eric Thorn. Just a few months before this […]
