2018 Reflections and 2019 Resolutions

This year has been…a lot. What with the end of my junior year, college applications, the start of my senior year, and everything else, I spent most of 2018 exhausted. Somehow I managed to read 111 books despite all that, but…I will admit a good twenty of them are not conventional novels (whether that be […]

Shiver Quartet Review

Ratings by each book: Shiver: 3 stars, although in hind-sight, it’s probably closer to four stars. Linger: 3 stars, and probably still 3 stars. Forever: 4 stars, yay, improvements!! Sinner: 2 stars, ready for a rant. So…I love Maggie Stiefvater, but this quartet is not a work of art. It resembles Twilight in all the ways one would probably like to […]

Hello! Happy November! The times have changed and the weather is still Santa Anas (love you, too, California), but we’re thriving (sort of). I’m making my way through Forever by Maggie Stiefvater, a library pick-up, but it’s going slower than the first two in the series. I’ll probably read Sinner this month to finish it off, but that depends […]

October Wrap-Up 2018

Hi, yes, I did not wrap-up September. I really don’t have much of an excuse, just that I’ve been kind of busy, but not too busy that I could let the blog fall onto the back burner. I’m hoping to catch up on reviews this month, especially since I have a week off of school! […]

When the Moon Was Ours Review

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars Summary: “To everyone who knows them, best friends Miel and Sam are as strange as they are inseparable. Roses grow out of Miel’s wrist, and rumors say that she spilled out of a water tower when she was five. Sam is known for the moons he paints and hangs […]

Strange the Dreamer Review

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars Summary: “The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around—and Lazlo Strange, war orphan and junior librarian, has always feared that his dream chose poorly. Since he was five years old he’s been obsessed with the mythic lost city of Weep, but it would take someone bolder than […]
