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…

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!

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!

Mailbox Monday May 1st

Hey friends! I don’t usually do Mailbox Monday because I don’t buy a ton of books, BUT I am a huge library fan, so I might start doing a library day update when I go. But anyway, Saturday was Indie Bookstore day and I did a Bookstore crawl with some friends. I figured today was a good day to do it! Originally, Mailbox Monday is found here. I found it on The Book Filled Day! Without further ado, here is all the awesome stuff I got!

Goodbye Days – Another Fantastic Heartbreak

After reading The Serpent King, I knew that I would definitely be following Jeff Zentner’s work. So as soon as I could, I picked up Goodbye Days. I’m not a huge fan of contemporary, but Zentner’s characters have a way of burrowing into your heart immediately and leaving you aching when it’s over. So, if they’re that painful, why should you read them? Read on and I’ll tell you why!

Goodbye Days Review by me! Why you should read this!
