Book Review: Play On

Book Review: Play On

First thing’s first: trigger warnings. Suicide, cutting, self harm. Ohhhhhh man. I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did – totally my own prejudices working against me. It’s time for me to stop judging YA contemporary romance before I even read them, because I almost always love them when I finally give them a chance. Play On is clearly no exception, and it’s probably one of my all-time favorite YA romance books out there. Confession: […]

Summer Book Haul

Summer Book Haul

Hi everyone! It’s been a whiiiile since I posted one of these. A lot has happened over my hiatus but I’ll get into that when I do my monthly wrap-up. One thing I do want to talk about is my new design! I was previously using the Chloe theme by Ashley, but then the Tweak Me v2 went on sale and I HAD to have it! When I purchased the new theme, my original plan was to keep the same […]

Whose Line is it Anyway?: Fall Releases!

Whose Line is it Anyway?: Fall Releases!

Hey everyone, welcome to another edition of Whose Line is it Anyway! Whose Line is a game I came up with wherein you will be given the first lines of a handful of titles and you try to guess which books they belong to. Underneath each quote is a spoiler tag which will reveal the book that matches the line. To give you an idea of how this works, check out the first post which was posted a few months ago, […]

What I’ve Been Reading: Comics and Graphic Novels

What I’ve Been Reading: Comics and Graphic Novels

During the month of July I basically got no reading done at all. Megaslump. So when I was headed into August, I composed an enormous TBR pile because I had a lot of catching up to do. And in the pile was Exquisite Corpse by Penelope Bagieu, a graphic novel I got while I was at BEA. I picked it up the first day of a read-a-thon, and flew threw it, sparking in me an urge to read all the […]

I’m Back & With A New Blogging Manifesto

I’m Back & With A New Blogging Manifesto

Wow, so summer was rough. It usually is for me. For one reason or another, if I’m going to be severely depressed and not get out of bed for days, it’s going to happen in the summer. I haven’t been diagnosed with seasonal depression or anything like that, but summer is just not a good time for me. And this summer was worse than recent years. Nothing terrible happened to me or anything like that, but it was a constant […]

Taking a Break

Taking a Break

So if you’re thinking, “Wow I feel like this chick just took a break” you’d be right. I was completely fed up with everything around mid-June and I took the last two weeks of last month off. And I’m here telling you now that I need yet another break – and I’m not sure how long this one will last. Why? In short, I’m just not feeling up to blogging these days. It’s not that I dislike blogging or anything, […]

Epic Recs Review: A Darker Shade of Magic

If you’re at all a part of the book world (which I assume you are, since you’re here) then there’s no way you missed the massive hype giant that stomped through Twitter and Goodreads right around the release of A Darker Shade of Magic. People literally would not stop talking about it – this book was impossible to get away from. So, while I acquired this the day it came out, I held off on reading it. Sometimes I like […]
