Book Review: Everything Leads to You by Nina LaCour

Everything Leads To You is a YA contemporary by Nina LaCour. I actually recently discovered Nina LaCour when I read her novel We Are Okay (review here, by the way) and fell madly, deeply, and instantly in love with her writing. As soon as I finished reading that book, I said to myself, well, okay, now […]

September OwlCrate Unboxing

This September’s OwlCrate theme was Mythical Creatures, and they successfully proved that everyone loves mythical creatures when the box completely sold out! I was lucky enough to receive this box for free after winning a free box in OwlCrate’s July Photo Challenge on Instagram! They do it every month and it’s a lot of fun. […]

Spooky Book Recommendations: Part Two

Guess what tiiiiime it is!? It’s time for spooky book recommendations, The September Edition!!! As y’all may know already, as far as I’m concerned spoopy season starts in August, so it’s been in full swing for quite some time now. I have been racing around Halloween stores announcing that I’m going to wear every single […]

Book Review: My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix

With the overwhelming success of the Netflix series Stranger Things and the return of Stephen King’s It to theaters with the children’s storyline bumped forward by nearly thirty years, the 80s are having another major moment in horror—and My Best Friend’s Exorcism, by Grady Hendrix, is no exception. This horror novel has been on my […]

The #IDareYou Book Tag

I find that book tags are typically a really good time, and get me thinking about things I might not otherwise think about if not for the questions in the tag (like the last question in this tag, which is a lot of fun!!!), so I was perusing the good ol’ interwebs looking for a […]

Ridiculous Questions People Ask Writers

Being a writer is kind of like being a unicorn—no one really knows what it’s like and a lot of people don’t even think you’re real. On the upside, you are magical, and now and then, you find the select few people—the really amazing ones—who actually believe in you. But along the way, you do […]

Popular Series I Haven’t Read

I’ve read quite a few very popular book series: Harry Potter, The Mortal Instruments, The Infernal Devices, The Dark Artifices, Lord of the Rings, The Merciless series, and so on. But one of the saddest things about being a bookworm is simply that there is not enough time to read every single book ever written […]

10 Common Stereotypes About Bookworms (& Which Ones Actually Apply to Me???)

Find a group of people with something in common, and you will find stereotypes about that group of people. It never fails. There are stereotypes about cheerleaders, stereotypes about bikers, stereotypes about stay-at-home moms. It doesn’t matter the group, there will be people assuming things about that group, and us bookworms are not exempt. There’s […]

Book Review: A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor

Have you ever gotten in a fight with someone while you were in a car together, and then you had to just sit there with them…trapped…unable to go anywhere else and forced to either work through your issues or tear each other’s heads off? This book is basically that feeling, multiplied by about a thousand. […]

August Book Haul

So in late June and most of July I went *a tad bit crazy* with book buying, so my August book haul is a smaller one, because, you know, life is all about balance…and because I’d like for my TBR to not fall and crush me to death in my sleep. I don’t ask for […]
