“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” by: Mark Haddon

  I know, I know. I said I wasn’t going to write and post a review on this one because it was so short…BUT I REALLY loved it a lot, and it’s my blog, so I can do as I please, including changing my mind and writing this here review for you all. You’re welcome. 🙂 This was the sixth book I completed for #Booktubeathon2017. Originally I had been planning […]

“The Inventor’s Secret Trilogy” by: Andrea Cremer

The Inventor’s Secret (Book #1) This was the second book I started and the third that I completed for #Booktubeathon2017. I chose this one as the “Read a book completely outside” challenge. The first day (Day 2 of Booktubeathon) I knocked out 206 pages total outdoors. I then began my third book (audio of When Dimple Met Rishi) and finished that one before I finally went to bed around 2 […]

“When Dimple Met Rishi” by: Sandhya Menon

This was on my TBR for a while before I finally decided to dive into it for #Booktubeathon 2017 which ran from July 24th-July 30th. This was the second book I completed for #Booktubeathon2017. I chose this one as the “Read a hyped book” challenge. This was on my TBR for a while before I finally decided to dive into it for #Booktubeathon 2017. I listened to the audio book […]

“Caraval” by: Stephanie Garber

In listening to this audiobook, read by Rebecca Soler, I knew I was going to listen to the whole thing in one day and I was able to do just that. Stopping for breaks and picking right back up, the story line never felt lost or dropped. Everything threaded pretty well together. This was a fun romp and reminded me a lot of a mix between Alice in Wonderland in […]

“The Graveyard Book” by: Neil Gaiman

I had heard mixed things about Gaiman’s work, so I was a little hesitant to jump in to see what I thought. It seemed that either people loved his writing or hated it and there wasn’t much in the middle. I am glad that I decided to pick this up from my local library, because it blew my expectations right out of the water! I LOVED the premise and even […]

“Fins” Trilogy by: Tera Lynn Childs

“Forgive my Fins”(Fins #1) I checked out a few reviews on good-reads before I jumped into writing my own. Only occasionally do I do this. I wanted to see if others were as enchanted with this as I was. Surprisingly, not the first few I read… I did not understand why so many people were down on this book. Yes it is filled with puns…..DELIGHTFULLY filled with puns! (I love […]

“Snow White”, “Cinderella” & “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland” Art by: Camilla Rose Garcia

“Snow White” by The Brothers Grimm: Here I thought I was familiar with The Brothers Grimm version! The lace part I thought was ribbons, I didn’t recall the comb, and the ending for the Queen? I did not remember that being the ending at all! The illustrations are spooky and eerie in such a lusciously Gothic way. I adored the book art both inside and out on all of these. […]

“A Shadow Bright and Burning” (Kingdom on Fire, #1) by: Jessica Cluess

Stunning cover aside, which the meaning of gets further explained toward the end, Cluess begins her tale in medias res. While it always takes a little bit to get ones bearings, this style is always a welcome one for me. I LOVED that she took the trope of Chosen One and spun it on its head. My favorite characters were probably not what many had as favs, Rook probably being […]

“#GirlBoss”by Sophia Amoruso

This is basically the book I will write once I have made my millions. Style and tone-wise that is. Filled with nuggets of wisdom, practical advice, and a bit of memoir this book packs a powerful and empowering punch. Starting a business from eBay and growing to a multi million dollar corporation took her years of dedicated hard work and for me that is the biggest take away here. Work […]

“Big Fish” by: Daniel Wallace

Edward Bloom is quite a character. He obviously uses humor to diffuse serious situations, but he also really likes telling tall tales. I think a lot of it was that he felt like an ordinary man. Too ordinary. Too average. He wanted his son to think he hung the moon. Edward wanted his son to think him mythical. Larger than life. He wanted love and admiration. I don’t think he […]
