Bookish Playlist: Divergent

It’s time again for another bookish playlist! I’m basing today’s playlist off of the Divergent trilogy by Veronica Roth. However, I’m going to do something a little different today. Instead of just giving a list of songs to represent the whole series, I’ll be dividing songs into which faction they represent. Which faction are you?…… Continue reading Bookish Playlist: Divergent

Processed with VSCO with kc25 preset

I have been going through books so fast this week I haven’t had a chance to do other types of posts here! Last night, I stayed up late to finish the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, with the last book Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian by Rick Riordan, published by Puffin Books. In…… Continue reading Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian by Rick Riordan (Puffin Books)

Processed with VSCO with kc25 preset

I finally finished the Shadow and Bone trilogy! I still have to read the Six of Crows duology before I watch the show, of course. If some of you are living in a cave or, like me, have not gotten around to Shadow and Bone yet, I hope this review and summary can help! Ruin…… Continue reading Book Review: Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo (ORION Children’s Books)

The Toll by Neal Shusterman, published by Walker Books Ltd., is the third and last book in the Arc of a Scythe trilogy, a young adult science fiction series.

Bookish Discussion: Required Reading

In every school I know of, kids are required to read certain books throughout the year, handpicked by the district curriculum. Some schools even require that kids read specific books over the summer. Now summer reading was one of the highlights of my summers, showing again what a total nerd I am. Each year we…… Continue reading Bookish Discussion: Required Reading

Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan (Puffin Books)

Processed with VSCO with kc25 preset

I just finished the fourth book in the original Percy Jackson series: Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan. I have to say that I am enjoying this middle grade fantasy series a lot more than I thought I would. A part of me thought I would be too old to…… Continue reading Book Review: Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan (Puffin Books)

Book Lists: Playboy Romances

Do you ever want a guilty pleasure read where the male love interest is a total playboy? He flirts with all the other women but can’t help falling in love with the main character. These type of romances are not my typical go-to. Because it’s not my thing, I have to admit, I haven’t read…… Continue reading Book Lists: Playboy Romances

Bookish Discussion: Negative Reviews

I just finished reading this awful book–yes, I typically force myself to read through books instead of DNF’ing (did not finish) them. It was a one star read for me, but I’m hesitant to write a negative review for it, in part because I received it for free from a publishing company that hoped I…… Continue reading Bookish Discussion: Negative Reviews

Bookish Playlist: Heartbreak

This playlist I’ve created on Spotify is dedicated to those moments when the main character breaks up with their love interest. When things seem hopeless and their heart is breaking. When the relationships just don’t work out. Circles-Post Malone -Standout Lyric: “Seasons change and our love went cold.” Falling-Harry Styles -Standout Lyric: “I’m in bed…… Continue reading Bookish Playlist: Heartbreak

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo is the sequel to Shadow and Bone, a trilogy I decided to get into since the hype tripled with the release of its Netflix show. You can read my Shadow and Bone review here. This is Leigh Bardugo’s first trilogy–I believe Shadow and Bone was her first-ever book.
