    Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

    To be honest with you, going into Sadie I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it. But as I dove deeper into the story and into Sadie’s adventures, I couldn’t help but fall in love and turn the pages quickly. Sadies sister’s body has been found and Sadie is determined to track down the man she believes is responsible. The story is told though Saide’s point of view as well as well as through a podcast, which in my opinion is an amazing aspect. It gave a lot of dynamic to the story being able to “listen” to other characters sharing their stories related to Sadie and her…

    How Annotating Books Changed My Life and Why You Should Annotate

    If you’re anything like I was, you’d never imagine that you would annotate your books. For me, it was simply because I was never that great at annotating. In school when teachers would say “highlight what’s important” I would highlight almost everything because I had trouble figuring out what was highlightable (that’s a word, right?). Annotating books took BookTube by storm and I started becoming inspired to annotate. The colors of the tabs were so pretty and made the book look good, but I was still super nervous to do it fearing that I would annotate EVERYTHING, so I had to find a system. Once I found the system I…

    Bookish Goals for 2019

    Happy New Year! I can’t believe that it’s 2019 already. I feel like we literally just started 2018. With a new year comes new goals and this year I have a few bookish goals I’d like to share with you all! Last year, I joined BookTube about half way though 2018 so I kind of was just winging it, simply because it was the middle of the year, I was new, and I wasn’t sure what I was doing. However, being 6 (or so) months into BookTubing, I have a better grasp of things! I recently got a new camera for my birthday (thanks mom – I know you’re reading!)…

    Review: The Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

    Reading The Assassin’s Blade was an amazing time. I am so happy that I read this one first. It’s a series of short stories, or novellas, that come before Celaena’s adventures in Throne of Glass. I’m going to do this review by breaking it down the story by story.  1. The Assassin and the Pirate Lord –★★★★☆ This is the first story where we are introduced to Celaena. She and her colleague Sam Cortland are going to meet the Pirate Lord to try and get repayment for the issues he has caused the King of Assassins. This story was a little slower moving, which makes sense since it’s setting the story up. I really loved the…

    Review: Seventh Born by Monica Sanz | Blog Tour

    Seventh Born is about a witch named Sera who is the seventh born. Being seventh born isn’t a good thing though, Sera is an outcast and only at her academy. The seventh born is a disgrace to the family and the mother of the seventh born dies. Sera is approached by a handsome Professor, Professor Barrington, and makes a deal that if she becomes his assistant and he’ll give her the referral she needs. I enjoyed the story! While reading I definitely was getting Harry Potter vibes. The characters were developed well and Sera and Professor Barrington’s relationship burned very slowly which was definitely nice. I liked the plot of…

    ARC Review: My Real Name Is Hanna by Tara Lynn Masih

    I am a huge fan of Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys so when I saw that it was similar, I was super excited to dive into it. I am picky when it comes to historical fiction, but I do love anything that has to do with the Holocaust/WW2 time period because it honestly just fascinates and intrigues me. Let me just start off by saying: My Real Name Is Hanna did not disappoint. I loved that it was told from the perspective of hiding, where other novels I’ve read are told from the point of being in the camps. Following Hanna and their family as they went on adventures to escape was…
