Finally Going to See Fantastic Beasts!

Image
Hey guys!
I am so excited for today, because I will finally be going to see Fantastic Beasts and where to find them! I don't know if you guys have heard but it is going to be a FIVE movie long series.
You can never have too much of the HP universe! I was thinking of whether or not I wanted to do a review of it on here or if I should start doing reviews of book to Movie/TV show adaptations, you guys should let me know what you want to see! I am so excited to see this! If you have seen it, shoot me an email at bookloversliftingandcrushing@gmail.com to tell me how you liked it because I have heard some mixed reviews. In general, I have heard that everyone loves Newt and that the beasts are adorable but the plot lacks something. So you guys should definitely let me know!
Thanks, Delaney M.

My TBR List at the Moment

Image
Hey guys!
So today I was at the bookstore just browsing around looking at all of the books when it dawned on me. I have a shit-load of books that I need to read! I realize that I have books at home that I must read first, but still, I go out and buy more. I have a serious problem...

Seriously, my room is filled wall to wall with books. I just recently re-did my bookshelves (Ill post a picture of it later) and I actually had to just stack some books on the top part of it to make it work.  But so I thought that it might be interesting to show you guys what my TBR list is right now. I know that some of you guys will hate me for not reading some of these yet and trust me, I probably hate myself for not reading them as well. 
My TBR List
1. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas Image found here: http://images.gr-assets.com/books/1452783825l/17927395.jpg
I am so ashamed to say that I have not read this yet. I think about it all the time, but as you guys may know, I am in this super read…

Hey guys!
I am so sorry that I have not posted for a long time. I have been extremely busy with crew and school and I am in this super reading slump so I have not had the urge to do something for this blog. But I am going to show you today what I am finally going to be reading. I am very excited about this and I have been wanting to read this book for a while and now I finally am! I just randomly picked up this novel and there is no telling when I am going to finish it with this torturous reading slump! But here is the book that I will be reading!!!!!!

If you don't know what this book is about, it is a gender-bend on Vlad the Impaler who was this killer in the Byzantine Empire which is so cool. I already thought that Vlad was interesting so I am interested to see White's take on this in the female side. As …
