5 Secrets to Unleashing Your Confidence

I am a very confident person. Even on rough days, bloated days, and yucky days, I can still feel pretty confident about myself. But, I definitely have not always been that way. And there are days that I still struggle, but those days are slowly becoming fewer and fewer. There isn’t anything special about me […]

Book Review: The Diviners

I love me some Libba Bray. She’s been on my top 10 list since the Gemma Doyle trilogy… which are also on my top 10 reads. To be fair, I don’t actually have a list of authors and books… more an ever-evolving “go-to” section of my brain that remembers certain books and authors with fondness… […]

Fangirl

Have you ever read a book and identified with the main character SO MUCH you were practically giddy through the entire story? Well, I just did.   Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (can we just say how cool her name is… because, I love it!) is about a girl named Cath who is obsessed with Simon […]

Abuse and Fifty Shades of Manipulation…

So… I’m probably going to make a lot of people mad with this post. I have quite a few dear friends who are in love with the trilogy, but I can’t keep smiling and nodding anymore… because, I feel quite alarmed that no one seems to pick up on the level of abuse that is […]

Book Review: The Slow Regard of Silent Things

It’s hard to write a full review for a book like this. This isn’t your typical book. This isn’t a stand alone book, and it doesn’t fit into The Kingkiller Chronicles trilogy. I’ve always loved orphaned things. Stuffed animals that were missing an eye, books with a tattered and beaten cover, forgotten toys and things […]

Book Review: The Goldfinch

So… I finished The Goldfinch…. So, yeah… okay. It’s won a TON of awards:¬†Pulitzer Prize for Fiction (2014), National Book Critics Circle Award Nominee for Fiction (2013), Goodreads Choice Nominee for Fiction (2013), Women’s Prize for Fiction Nominee (2014), Paris Review Best of the Best (2013). I was really excited to read it, I had […]

Book Review: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

  So…. I kind of have a love hate relationship with this book and I REALLY struggled with how to write this review. First of all I LOOOOVE Libba Bray. I loved the Gemma Doyle trilogy, it’s on my list of favorite books of all time. So… I really wanted to love everything about this […]

New Favorite Quote

I make you a promise, dear reader, that I will find ways to insert this quote into my daily conversations as much as possible. 1 – Because it’s hilarious and 2 – Because it’s awesome. I’m currently reading Beauty Queens by Libba Bray (who I already loved from her other books; A Great and Terrible […]

Book Review: Eye of Zoltar

I still want to own a Quarkbeast! I am in love with the first two books of the Chronicle’s of Kazam and the third installment,¬†Eye of Zoltar, does not disappoint! Jasper Fford weaves a magical and witty tale that is full of adventure, chaos, charm, peril and absurdity. Jennifer Strange, manager of Kazam Mystical Arts, […]

Book Review: Mr. Punumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore

Mr. Punumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore… My Honest opinion? I love it!     Seriously. I love this book. I listened to the audio version of this, as I heard it had some neat little secret audio additions (which it does) and the first thing I wanted to do once I had finished the book… was […]
