What I’ve Been Watching

What I’ve Been Watching

I don’t know if you guys will ever see these posts once a month like I intended. The last time I did one of these posts was in October. I cannot believe that. Actually, given how INSANE these last few months have been, I actually can believe it. These last few months, I’ve gravitated towards old favorites, old comforts. Things that make me think of simpler, less crappy times. Both Netflix & Hulu have been instrumental in this. Rewatch ER […]

Alexia’s Recent DNFs

Alexia’s Recent DNFs

Hi guys, I’m back with a new round of DNFs. It’s only the beginning of February and I’ve already DNFed 7 books. I did have a great start to the year reading-wise, so I’ll take it. All of these books are eARCs, and some of them are really old eARCs. I’ve actually been really enjoying the books I’ve been reading that I already own, so YAY! This edition of Did Not Finish could also be titled Authors I’m Forced to […]

Most Anticipated: February 2018

Most Anticipated: February 2018

Most Anticipated is a feature where I talk about the next month’s upcoming book releases! This isn’t an exhaustive list of everything that’s coming out, but it’s the titles I’m most excited for. February is a surprisingly full month! There are a ton of new releases I am eagerly anticipating, including some sequels and debuts. A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena [Goodreads] So I dismissed this as a fluffy contemporary until like five minutes ago when I read the […]

Alexia’s Recent DNFs

Wow, I have not done one of these posts in awhile. I try to do them every month, but that just hasn’t happened lately. I’ve had a rough reading time over the past few months, although October was fabulous. reading-wise. Let’s talk about the books that just didn’t work for me over the past few months. You Know Me Well by Nina LaCour & David Levithan. I hate not being invested in a book that I know could be really important […]

Bekka’s Five Star Predictions

Bekka’s Five Star Predictions

I’ve seen this around BookTube quite a bit, starting with Mercy’s Bookish Musings. I had been in a reading slump for the better part of October, so I decided not to take part right away. But now that I’m reading again and planning out all my end-of-the-year bookishness, I wanted to give this a go. The idea is to pick a handful of books you think you’ll rate five stars. This was harder than I thought, because giving out five […]

Falling in Love With Fantasy

Falling in Love With Fantasy

It’s no secret that fantasy books aren’t really my thing. I usually turn towards contemporary, science fiction or even horror books before fantasy books. But over the past 2 or so months, something has changed and I’ve found myself really into the fantasy genre. I’ve even given some fantasy books higher praise than contemporaries lately. It’s a weird shift that I wasn’t expecting and I also don’t know how long it will last. Like most bloggers, I do have a […]

Tropes and Styles I Do Not Like

Tropes and Styles I Do Not Like

Before I started blogging, I didn’t really read with a critical eye. And to be honest, I didn’t read a whole lot either. I basically liked everything I picked up, when I bothered to read a book. But now I read a LOT. Maybe not as much as a lot of book-internet-types, but much more than the average person, and much more than pre-internet Bekka. Over the years I’ve been able to hone my critical eye – and I’ve been […]
