New Format

Hi guys!
I am thinking about changing up the format of my blog a little bit. If I decide to do this, it will just have a different look and all of the content will remain the same, so don't worry.

I'm not positive that I will be doing it, but I would like to give you guys a heads up. If you see that the blog looks different, it's supposed to be that way and you didn't stumble upon a completely different site.

I hope you enjoy the changes that I do make, if I am so inclined to do so!

Thanks for reading

The Rose and The Dagger by Renee Adieh Review

Image
Hi guys!

Today I will be reviewing The Rose and The Dagger by Renee Adieh.
Image found here: http://images.gr-assets.com/books/1443797156l/23308084.jpg
I would like to start off by saying, well done Renee Adieh. She has managed to craft a beautiful story with intricacies that only an old legend can have. Yet again, the writing style was incredible in this book. It was poetic and beautiful. The plot was interesting and kept me captivated till the very end. There were so many twists and turns that I didn't know what to do with myself. Each one struck a different emotion. Hate. Anger. Lust. Sadness.  Another thing that I really enjoyed about this was the character growth and how the relationships changed. The characters that were introduced really impacted the story, which some of the time they don't in YA novels so I appreciated that. The aspects of family, friendship and love were magnificent. Although I have never seen so much backstabbing in one book. I would've never gue…

All of the Holidays Book Tag (Original)

Image
Hi guys!

From a request, I will start doing Book Tags on this blog. This is an original tag so I made up all of the questions and everything. I will say that these are all of the major holidays that I celebrate, so some of them are purely American, you can change the solely American ones if you want to do this tag and you live in another country and celebrate a different holiday.

Okay let's get started with this tag!

1. New Years: Name a book or series that you read every year
I feel like this is an answer for nearly everybody has but it still is my choice. 
2. Valentines Day: Name a book centered around a relationship I know, I know, not very Valentines Day-y because it is all about a break up, but it is still about a relationship and the majority of this book is stories from their actual relationship, and the reason's why they broke up. 
3. St. Patrick's Day: Name a book with gold on the cover I mean, the gold palace
4. Easter: Name a book with Spring/Easter colors on th…

Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han Book Review

Image
Hi Guys!

I'm going to be reviewing Always and Forever Lara Jean by Jenny Han!
Image found here: https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51-HArKnTQL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg
I went into this book knowing nothing that was going to go down and I thought that it would be as light and fluffy as the other books, which it was not. I will say it was the first time that I was annoyed at Lara Jean really, because of her decisions about college. Now that I get the negative stuff out of the way, it's time to talk about everything that I loved in this book. Kitty is one of my all-time favorite characters in these books and she was even better in this one! I was also kind of happy that Josh wasn't really seen throughout this book, because I am not the biggest fan of Josh now. There were some heart-wrenching parts of this book that I definitely was not expecting but I really respected how Jenny Han did those parts of the book. The plot was very well done and the new character…

Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch Book Review

Image
Hi Guys!

Im so excited that I finally read this book and that I am going to be reviewing it for you guys today!
So without further ado, I will be review Frost Like Night by Sara Raasch
WARNING! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THROUGH THE SECOND BOOK "ICE LIKE FIRE", DO NOT CONTINUE READING!!!!!
Image found here: http://images.gr-assets.com/books/1455829171l/28512486.jpg
With this series being one of my favorites, I had high expectations for this last book. And it totally lived up to my expectations! The characters the Raasch created were still ever so lovely and well-rounded. The twist ending to Ice Like Fire, set up the beginning of this book perfectly. Finding out that Angra was alive made everything more intense about the story and I throughout the entire time I was wondering "How is Theron???". As usual Raasch's writing is beautiful and made it so the story went by quickly.  The plot was interesting and enriching, and kept me on edge. There were so many different twis…

The Siren by Kiera Cass Book Review

Image
Hi guys!
Im sorry that this is super late, I read this book ages ago but I am finally getting around to putting up the reviews for all of the books that I read. So all of you guys will be seeing a lot of book reviews today as well as maybe some other content.

Anyways, this is my review for The Siren by Kiera Cass

So I want to get this across as quickly as possible, this was definitely not my favorite Kiera Cass book. I found it very insta-lovey which I know that many people do not like. Although this insta-love didn't really make me angry, I also really enjoyed the love interest this book. The concept was a little cliche but I personally hadn't read many books before that involved sirens so I thought that it was fine. I did really enjoy the plot for this though. There were so many twists and turns and there were actually some heart-wrenching moments. I did like most of the characters even though I thought that the main character was annoying. I enjoyed the relationships betwee…

What Books Got Me Into Reading

Image
Hi guys!
Today I will be sharing with you the books that got me into reading. This was an anonymous request from one of you guys so I thank you for that request. Also, if you have any ideas for what you wanna see on this blog, go to my last post and give your insight! Most likely I'll take your suggestion (like with this one!).

So I have always loved the idea of books and reading and writing, but I have had pitfalls along the way, especially in when I was about 7 or 8, but I kept at it and I had a lot of help from my fourth grade teacher and with her help, I fell in love with books even more. Now, I am not saying that I didn't read when I was 7 or 8, because I did. In fact, some of the books that got me reading how I am today were from that time in my life.

So here we go...

1. Dragon Slayers Academy by Kate Mcmullan
Image found here: http://www.kidsreads.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/book_main/covers/0448431084.jpg
I definitely owe it to these books for my reading today. …

Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler Review

Image
Hey guys,
Today I will be reviewing Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler.
Image found here: https://www.collegefashion.net/.image/c_fit,cs_srgb,q_80,w_620/MTI4ODM3NTAwODUxNjI0NDE0/why-we-broke-up-book-cover.jpg This book was absolutely amazing. From the very beginning, it drew me in. Daniel Handler (or maybe as you know him, Lemony Snicket) wove a beautiful tale that made me fall in love with the characters as well as the old movies that came up time and time again. 
First; the characters were amazingly well written and well rounded. The relationships between them were so realistic and I felt a tear in my heart every single time that Min wrote, "that's why we broke up". Handler wrote up their relationship with every part of their relationship then tore it down multiple times with five little words. 
Second; Daniel Handler's amazing writing was truly the best part of this novel. Not the characters, not their relationships, not the plot. His beautiful, poetic writing made…

P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han Review

Image
Hey guys!
Today I will be reviewing P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han.
Image found here: http://d28hgpri8am2if.cloudfront.net/book_images/onix/cvr9781442426740/p-s-i-still-love-you-9781442426740_hr.jpg
Let me start off by saying that in no way is this book perfect. The writing style appeals to teenage girls specifically and so does the plot, but that doesn't mean that I loved it any less. Some of the relationships may seem ridiculous at first, but then you realize that that is actually what high school relationships are like. No matter how ridiculous it sounds while you are reading it, you should know, Jenny Han is pretty spot on.  As I said before, this book is not perfect, there were flaws in the story and characters, as did the first one in this series. But if you are looking for a really soft and fluffy read, this is the book to go with. This was a rollercoaster of emotions that kept me hooked and made me not want to finish it. This book was so nice to pick up and just read a…
