Why did I wait?? Six of Crows Review

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

So, I have to admit this book has been on my to read list since it came out. Even after hearing all the amazing reviews, for some reason, I just wasn’t drawn to it. The summary just didn’t click with me. It wasn’t until Leigh Bardugo announced she was coming to Utah for her Wonder Woman: Warbringer tour that I finally decided that I had to read it before she arrived. So, I finally dived in. And wow, why on earth did I wait?? Definitely a five star book! And here’s why you should read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo…

Newest Member of the Family

Sorry I’ve been MIA the past little bit. Life has gotten crazy at my house. There’s the matter of the newest member of our family, but first an update on reading. I’ve got a job ghostwriting a book that’s eaten up all my writing time and a lot of my reading time.

A Scrappy Little Book- A Review

Anna Kendrick has been an actress I heartily enjoy watching ever since seeing her in Pitch Perfect. I saw her autobiography, Scrappy Little Nobody, on display at the library and had to snag it. It’s a quick read, so it’s one that you’ll get through in no time!

Mailbox Monday June 5th

Mailbox Monday was started over here and it’s one of my favorite book memes to participate in! I love seeing the books that everyone else has got. Plus, it’s fun to show off your haul. I don’t usually buy enough books to justify doing it, but I haven’t done it in a while, so I thought I’d catch up. It was recently my birthday, plus we went to Anime Oasis, so we could justify buying plenty of books!

Anime Oasis 2017

As a Utah native, Anime Banzai is my go to anime convention. But this year, my hubby and I decided to mix it up. Anime Oasis falls near my birthday and Boise isn’t too far from us, so we decided to check it out. We sprang for the con hotel because we wanted to get the full experience. We also took along a couple friends M & J. So, here’s the highlights!

WWW Wednesday May 17th!

WWW Wednesday is a fun meme I found here. I don’t do it every week, but this week I’m struggling to get through some of the books in my stack. I’m hoping that by doing this, it will motivate me to keep reading and get stuff done!

Queens of Geek for Life

If you’re on instagram like me, I’m sure you’ve seen pictures of Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde floating around. It’s been listed on many ‘most anticipate’ and  ‘must have’ lists from both readers and publishers. So, of course I had to pick it up when I was at Barnes and Noble the other day. All I knew about it was that it was supposed to be very diverse and very fangirl. I read it in less than three hours. It’s not a long book, but still. That’s quick. I loved it! And here’s why!

My most recent book purchase!

Anime Oasis Planning 2017

Hey friends, I’ve been posting a ton of bookish content so I figured I’d mix it up with something a bit different. The anime convention Anime Oasis is coming up at the end of the month! It’s located in Boise, so it’s a bit out of my way, but still one of the closest conventions. You can find out more about Anime Oasis here.
