I picked up this book right after I finished the Red Queen series mainly because it interested me but also because Victoria Aveyard is a contributor for this book which I thought was cool. I’ve also read The Ring and the Crown and Blue Bloods my Melissa de la Cruz and they where pleasant reads too. Some Details Authors: Melissa de la Cruz (Editor), Victoria Aveyard (Contributor), Libba Bray (Contributor), Margaret Stohl (Contributor), Stacey Snider (Contributor), Quvenzhane Wallis (Contributor), Elizabeth Acevedo (Contributor), Zareen Jaffery (Contributor), Anjenette Johnston (Contributor)  Title: Because I Was A Girl: True Stories […]
The Darkest Minds was a series I had never even heard of until the day I was bored and decided to watch that god awful movie adaptation where Amandla Stenberg is put into clothes four times smaller than her size. That day still bring me shivers at night. Although I thought the idea of the movie was really interesting and I felt like they had just played it wrong on screen. I did some research and found a trilogy? I had no idea at all these books existed and I was […]
I first heard of Wilder Girls on Goodreads before it was published or has a cover drop. Usually I only follow new books by the authors I like. For example, I know Chain of Iron is coming out March 2021 and so is Realm Breaker. Although I figured that because of all the hype this book was getting so early on I should think I’d like it too. I was really excited to see the cover when it finally dropped lol. After reading the synopsis in March, a little after […]
I tend to get very caught up in the happenings of my phone. I already keep a couple social media apps off my phone because I know that should I get bored I will spend hours on there doing nothing at all. I saw this book at the library right when lockdown started and figured that since this time of isolation would have me tempted to raid every single social media platform, I should probably make sure I do something other than look at custom built cat trees and tiny […]
Surprisingly, I love this TV show called Gilmore Girls which aired like a year after I was born. One of my friends recommended this show to me and I thought I would not enjoy it because of how mundane it was. Truly, I find that nothing major has happened since season one but I watch it anyway because it’s heartwarming and sweet and there is a possibility that I am manifesting a dream to live in a place as quaint and cute as Stars Hollow. As it happens, Rory Gilmore, one […]
I am always loosing my mom at the grocery store. When this happens, I always go for a stroll to the book section of any bookstore in hopes that she’ll think I’m there and also because I want to see what’s in stock. For some reason, grocery store books are always on some 30% deal whichever store I go to but that same book is selling full price at Chapters. This is still something I’ve got to figure out but for now I will enjoy my discounted hardcover of Where […]
  A couple weeks ago I was browsing free ebooks on my phone and landed on Frankenstein. Although I’ve obviously heard of Frankenstein I have never read it nor did I think I would want to read it, since the premise of the novel did not seem to my great interest. But I can affirm that I was surprisingly  mistaken and I am happy I gave this one a chance. Some Details Author: Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley Original title: Frankenstein or, The Modern Prometheus Published: January 1, 1818 (this edition: March […]
Four years ago I walked into my local chapters waiting to get picked up after a day of shopping excursions with some friends. As I roamed the stacks of books aimlessly – since I wasn’t that big of a bookie and usually relied on the box sets my parents chose for me as Christmas presents – I was very ill informed on the big books of the literary world. But there, in this amazing section of the store; Young Adult Fiction, I almost knocked over this big cardboard box filled […]
