Book or E-Book?

People ask me this all the time. "Do you prefer reading from a book or an e-reader?" And I never know exactly how to answer, because even though I have a kindle, I do love to have the actual book. It really depends on what you are reading. If I want to read some random book that I don't know if I will like or not and not a lot of people have like reviewed it on goodreads and such, I will probably get it on Kindle, or like a sneak peak or something. Or if it is cheap because most Kindle books are a lot less money than the actual book. But the upside to reading a physical book, is that...

  • They smell nice
  • It is nice to feel in your hands
  • They look pretty on your shelf
  • It doesnt run out of battery. 
  • You are approached by people who see the cover. 
  • The covers are pretty. 
  • You can pet them. 
  • And a ton of other things that I forget. 
  • Oh yeah, you dont strain your eyes. 
So i probably prefer real books but i always feel so conflicted when ever someone asks me that question. So yeah. 

Thats it.

Currently Reading and Excitement

Currently reading.....................


Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Also! I have received information that I would review a book called Fangirls Guide to the Galaxy by Sam Maggs. This is really exciting for me, because the author will be attending bookcon so I will be able to meet her, and this seems like the perfect book for me ever. 

Doesn't it?


Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas Review

I had already said that I had read half of this book, got annoyed and had to read a book for school so I just stopped.

This reread was so much better. Surprisingly, it was hard to get into, then about 3/4 of the way through the book, I got so caught up in the book, I didn't sleep a minute. It was amazing, I just kept reading and reading. Stopping at awe in a plot twist that I probably would have seen coming if it weren't 3:00. The moments that I would want to stop reading, Sara J. Maas pulled me right back in. I smiled, I laughed, I gasped, I surprisingly didn't cry, (not that there would be anything to really cry about, but still). I had to stifle a scream about four times in the middle of the night.

If you guys not picked up this book yet, you are completely missing out if you like bad-ass assassins and magic and fantasy. You really have to check it out! And the third book just came out too, Heir of Fire, so now is the time to read the series!

#5. When you go and see the book to movie adaptation and it completely ruins your mind image of the characters, the world, and everything that you had made up on your own.
#6. When someone asks you why you read since it is "so stupid".

(also Im sorry if I repeat any of these, you will just see that I have very strong feelings about these.)

#10. Waiting for the next book.
#11. Always.

Currently Reading/Rereading This Time

I am currently rereading ........................................................................................................................................................................................................

Throne of Glass by Sara J. Maas 

Okay, so the story with this is that, when I was reading it, it was a while ago when the old cover was out, and I got so annoyed with the fact that it was basically Sarah J. Maas on the cover and it wasn't how I pictured her, so I got really really really annoyed, and so I stopped reading half way through it, and I got the new cover edition and I am rereading it finally after like a million months. Well, that was just an update.

See ya later (Maybe Literally),
