5 Books I Really Like But Don’t Mention Enough

5 Books I Really Like But Don’t Mention Enough

On Thursday I had a sort-of negative post about books and series I’m not interested in reading. I like writing those types of posts and I’m not one to dislike writing negative reviews, but I thought I’d switch things up and put some positivity out here. So I’ve made a list of a handful of books I really, really liked, but don’t get enough attention on my blog. Darkness Before Dawn Trilogy by J.A. London I’ve only read the first […]

6 Popular Books or Series I’m Not Interested In

6 Popular Books or Series I’m Not Interested In

A few years ago I was sort of opposed to reading extremely hyped books. This was during the height of the dystopia craze, and since that’s not really a genre I connect with, I think that played into this. I was constantly being burned by all the positive reviews of books I simply hated, and for a long time, I didn’t trust the mass waves of love a lot of books got. More recently though, I’ve loved hyped books. I […]

Book Review: When I Am Through With You by Stephanie Kuehn

Book Review: When I Am Through With You by Stephanie Kuehn

This will likely be a quick review because I was very disappointed with this book and I’d like to just move past it. Stephanie Kuehn is an auto-buy author for me and so I was obviously extremely excited to get this in my hands as fast as possible and devour it just as quickly. But I feel that the bar was set pretty high with Complicit a couple years ago and it’s just not easy to meet those same standards. […]

Rosie Reads Valensteins

Rosie Reads Valensteins

Rosie Reads is a new series featuring, you guessed it, my baby Rosie reading her picture books. One of the things I looked forward to the most when I found out about Rosie was all the story times we’d share together. I bought something like 60 books for her before she was even born and arranged them lovingly on the shelves in her nursery. She gets a story every night before bed (now that we’ve actually established a nighttime routine. […]

The Comic Explosion Book Tag

The Comic Explosion Book Tag

I saw this book tag while scrolling through, looking for one that I hadn’t seen before. Owl Crate’s May box was the Comic Explosion theme and they did a book tag to go along with it, which I thought was just perfect. Obviously I wasn’t tagged by anyone to do it, but I don’t think I ever am? If you’re tagging me in things please let me know so I can stop being a jerk. This time around I’m going […]

Book Review: Such a Good Girl by Amanda K. Morgan

Book Review: Such a Good Girl by Amanda K. Morgan

This was SO good! I went into it knowing as little as possible – there is a student-teacher romance and a twist – and I totally recommend doing the same. So I’ll do my best to avoid plot things while telling you all the ways this was such an awesome thriller that you absolutely need to read. First of all, I loved Riley. She’s a type A overachiever, but turned up to an 11. She works really, really hard at […]
