Stacking the Shelves #14

Stacking the Shelves #14

Hi everyone! I don’t have much to report from the last week. Weasley went back to the vet for some boosters and he’s got a clean bill of health, so that’s a good thing. And he’s gained 2 1/2 pounds since we got him in July. The other two jerk cats still hate him, but there’s a lot less tension in the house since they’ve finally gotten used to him. Or they’ve just resigned themselves to their fate. I didn’t […]

Book Review: Vengeance Road

Book Review: Vengeance Road

Okay, so I picked up Vengeance Road with a drag in my step like ugh ugh, I GUESS I’ll read some of this because it was sent to me by the publisher, but what I reaaaallly want to read is Harry Potter. So I read the first chapter and holy shit holy shit was that AMAZING. This book opens up with an absolutely bang and it doesn’t let up! It’s adventuresome and exciting and so, so different from anything I have read […]

Book Review: A Curious Tale of the In-Between

Book Review: A Curious Tale of the In-Between

First Sentence: Pram died just before she was born. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this as I don’t often read middle grade. This isn’t a judgment cast upon those that do – it’s just not typically for me, and by now I know my tastes. There have been a handful that I’ve really liked. (The Riverman, Harry Potter, and the Fairyland series come to mind immediately.) Couple this with the fact that Lauren Destefano’s books aren’t typically for […]

The Chris Pratt Book Tag

The Chris Pratt Book Tag

Chris Pratt is the ultimate celebrity crush. He’s got everything: he’s hilarious, he’s attractive, and he has a beautiful family. I’ve loved him since I first watched Parks and Rec, and with his rising popularity, it was only a matter of time before a book tag was dedicated to him. When I saw it, I immediately jumped on it. So I obviously wasn’t tagged, but who even cares because Chris Pratt 1. guardians of the galaxy – your favorite character […]

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 […]
