Allison: Open Road Summer | Emery Lord | Book Review

Open Road Summer Featured Image

Open Road Summer by Emery Lord is a book that has been on my radar for quite some time now. Ever since its initial release, it was a book that so many other bloggers were buzzing about in the best ways, and I kept thinking that it sounded like a book that might just be right up my alleyway as well. … [continue]

Summer Of The Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall | Book Review

SummeroftheMariposasbyGuadalupeGarciaMcCall

After The Summer Of The Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall passed my threshold, I looked at it with optimism, but not much motivation. Friends, this book sat on my Kindle and then in my house for YEARS because I can sometimes be a terrible blogger. I decided to make McCall’s contemporary-fantasy retelling a summer priority in order to kill two birds with one stone — read an old book from my TBR pile and thus be able to pass it on and also to remove a Netgalley book from my queue. Also, because The Odyssey is mad awesome.

Happy Fifth Blogoversary To Me!

With Some AMAZING Book Blogger Friends

If I thought I would be in this same place five years ago, I would be shocked. Honestly, I never thought blogging would have the impact on my life that it does, for good and for bad.

Nightingale’s Nest by Nikki Loftin | Book Review

Oh my goodness, I love fairy tale retellings aimed at middle graders. When I saw a retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Nightingale pop up on Netgalley, I knew I had to read it, even though I am not totally entirely familiar with the origin story. Nightingale’s Nest by Nikki Loftin is a story that makes great […]

Shadows by Robin McKinley | Book Review

ShadowsbyRobinMcKinley

The crux of the matter is that I really, really love Robin McKinley’s books, but unfortunately Shadows turned out to be kind of a really big disappointment. I mean, it’s not like I ever expect to dislike her books. No, instead, I go in expecting a book that is not exactly going to be a fast […]

Just Like The Movies Featured Image

Have you ever imagined what it would be like if real life was like the movies? Or at least like those romantic comedies or romantic dramas where the girl gets the boy of her dreams every time? I would be lying if I said that I had never imagined what would happen if my life […]

#scandal by Sarah Ockler | Book Review

scandalbySarahOckler

I really wanted to love #scandal by Sarah Ockler. I mean, as a user of the internet, I like books about other users of the internet and books that make a commentary on social media. The description of #scandal made it sound like it would be a total April book. It was not. While the […]
