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!

Daughter of the Pirate King Review

Daughter of the Pirate King is a book that’s sat on my to-read stack for a few months since I got it in my OwlCrate. I hadn’t heard much about it, and though I looked forward to it, it somehow never made it to the top of my list. But after finishing Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas I had to read a few short books before I jump into Queen of Shadows. Before finishing Daughter of a Pirate King and Goodbye Days (By Jeff Zentner) I was four behind. So, this seemed like a quick way to help make up the gap. Without further ado, here’s my Daughter of the Pirate King review!

Traitor to the Throne Review

Here is my Traitor to the Throne review! I had to wait a little while to write my review for this until I had calmed down a little inside. This book has a ton of feels, so prepare yourself! Amani is back and she is trying to kick some ass. Unfortunately, someone is making that difficult. So, why should you read this book? Read on and I will tell you!

Taylor Swift Book Tag

So, however you feel about Taylor Swift, book tags are fun. I personally enjoy her music and this tag looked like a lot of fun. So here is my version of the Taylor Swift book tag! You can see the original post on youtube here. I personally found the tag on Becoming Bookish.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with a book tag, it’s basically a bunch of prompts related to a theme. In this case the theme is Taylor Swift songs. It’s pretty self-explanatory, so read on!

We Are Okay

We Are Okay by Nina LaCour was a book I’d seen all over Instagram for the past couple of months. I wasn’t sure about it, but I finally borrowed it from my local library. And boy, am I glad I did!

Hay House Writer’s Workshop

Sorry I’ve been gone for so long! I traveled to Las Vegas for a Writer’s Workshop and I was busier than I anticipated. I’m going to give you a day by day so it’s not too overwhelming. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures. I was too busy taking in the sights!

Friday-

We traveled down to Vegas from Northern Utah. It was a great day for the drive. We made it to St. George where we stopped at Barnes and Noble. We were in the car for over 4 hours so it was nice to take a break. I held myself to two books and I ended up with a couple manga. I’ve read through them both over the weekend and heartily enjoyed them. I won’t do a full review but I might do a summary of them both.  We made it to Las Vegas fairly early. We stayed at Excalibur which was fun. Unfortunately, the pools hours were from 10-5. So, we didn’t get to swim at all. That night we did a little shopping and had a yummy dinner.
