Bookish Discussion: Judging a Book By The Cover

“Don’t judge a book by a cover” is a popular saying meaning we shouldn’t judge people based on appearances.

Processed with VSCO with kc25 preset

Still reeling from my last amazing fantasy read, I took to another book in a vastly different genre: a contemporary YA romance. I finished Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon, published by Alley Entertainment, and honestly, was really disappointed with it.

Book Review: Legendborn by Tracy Deonn (Simon & Schuster)

I first found Legendborn by Tracy Deonn, published by Simon & Schuster, through Bookstagram and it looked brilliant. YA fantasy/king Arthur retelling? Sign me up.

Moving off the Grishaverse until I get Rule of Wolves, I decided to read a book that I bought a couple months ago, and has been on my tbr backlist.

Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (ORION Children’s Books)

If you’ve read my Shadow and Bone reviews, you’ll know that wasn’t a big fan of that trilogy. Still, I decided to read the next series, a duology from the same universe. I just finished the first book in the duology, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (published by ORION Children’s books), and let me…… Continue reading Book Review: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (ORION Children’s Books)
