Hello book lovers! Guess who is FINALLY catching up on her growing review pile – this girl! I have been flying through books these past few weeks and yet it some how just hit me that I haven’t been writing any reviews lately – and I need to for the majority that I have read because either I loved them and/or I have a lot to say about them. Thankfully today’s is a read that caught me surprise and I absolutely loved it. I COULDN’T PUT IT DOWN! Continue reading “I Couldn’t Put This Book Down.”
Hello book lovers! Guess who is finally free and on summer break! This girl! I have so much planned for this summer with this blog and my YouTube channel which makes me so happy and I am ready to take on all of my goals.
Now for those of you that follow my bookstagram, you may remember me mentioning some things on my 2018 Bucket List in January – going to the cinema by myself for the very first time was one of them. I have been trying to work out the perfect time and movie for this ever since and last Tuesday was finally the big day! (Wow, I am being dramatic about this but guys — it was a big deal to me). Continue reading “2018 Bucket List: I Finally Went to the Cinema by Myself”
Hello book lovers! Today’s review is for the first classic that I have read this year and boy did I love it. I needed to read a book for my creative writing course that discussed depression in a way that current books don’t so I took a leap by selecting The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I have been wanting to read this book for a while and went into it barely knowing anything about the plot. It did turn my stomach at times but I fell right into it and couldn’t stop reading it whenever I had the time to. I could have easily flown through it in a matter of days but darn university for making it take eleven days – which isn’t TOO bad… right?

Hello book lovers! I hope that all of you are having a lovely week. It has been quite a long time since I did a haul (thanks to me putting myself on a book-buying ban) but thanks to my creative writing course and being sent books for review, I finally have a pile to share with you guys! Woo! Continue reading “March Book Haul”
Hello book lovers! I am posting this review over 48 hours after finishing the book and I AM STILL NOT OKAY!! I finally gave in to buying this book on World Book Day, because I obviously had to celebrate it that way, and boy do I not know how it took me so long to pick it up! I first heard about Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman when the trailer was released last year as it was being shown in film festivals. It caught my attention right away with its artsy and travel vibes so once I found out that it was originally a book, I was ecstatic. Continue reading “The Book That I Read in Only Three Days”
Hello book lovers! I am finally writing a review for my first ever blog tour! I was sent this book by Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin Random House. How exciting! I am a bit late on this due to it getting lost in the mail but I am still so thankful for this amazing opportunity. I am hoping to film a review/discussion on my booktube channel soon (once I am no longer ill) so be sure to watch out for it! Continue reading “Review: Rookie on Love, Edited by Tavi Gevinson”
Hello book lovers! I thought that it would be fun to set myself a TBR pile for February. I tend to not do this anymore as I never stick to them but this month I am on a massive reading kick so I thought that I would give it another go while being more reasonable with my amount.
January was a really good month for me but I have decided to give myself a break from my reading assignments for my creative writing course (minus my massive one) and focus on some of the books that I bought recently. Continue reading “The Month for Big Books and Bribing?”
Hello book lovers! We are already into the second month of 2018 which is unbelievable and quite stressful seeing as my April deadlines are officially fast approaching.
January was a decent reading month for me – I completed two books and got through half of another. I have to read five books for my Creative Writing course by April so that has been my priority lately though I do think that I might give myself a quick break seeing as I have almost completed three of the five. Continue reading “Started The Year Off Strong”
Hello book lovers! Today I have a review for you that I originally wasn’t planning on writing BUT I loved the book too much not too and, admittedly, I have to do a book presentation on it and figured that writing this would actually help me with that rather than being another thing among my pile of assignments right now.
Now for anyone who has watched the Netflix series, Mind Hunter, this is the book that inspired it. It is a true crime novel written by John Douglas, the FBI Agent who worked towards inventing and establishing the practice of criminal profiling. Yes I admit that I got that wording from the book blurb on the back of my copy but that is the easiest way to explain it. Now with it all being true – a recap of the cases that he helped with, the criminals that he interviewed, and the difficulties that he faced in his personal life due to his work – it is a bit gruesome and intense at times. However, as a person who LOVES true crime and TV shows such as Law and Order SVU, this book was one that I will never forget and could happily re-read in the future.

Summer Splurges 2017: Three greats weeks in Florida + Three visits to Barnes and Noble + One visit to Sam’s Club = Too much money spent on books and Funko Pops.
Do I regret any of it? Of course not.
