Date Completed: 2/24/16 Rating: 10/10 This is a story that I've been looking forward to for weeks. I mean, there is literally so much hype all over the internet and I've not read a single review (yet) that was below five stars (although now of course I'm going to have to find one). What separates … Continue reading Fangirl ~ Rainbow Rowell
Date Completed: 2/21/16 Rating: 6.5/10 Although this book started out slow, the pace built throughout the story and I ended it wanting more. It's 2163 and some people have moved from the dying planet Earth to a new planet called Exilon 5. Why the transition? It's a little unclear, but it seems that Earth fell … Continue reading Exilon 5 ~ Eliza Green
I have a lot of feelings about pens. I write every single day, especially since I started bullet journalling. As a student, I've had lots of run-ins with pens. Losing them EVERYWHERE, loaning them to people in class, loaning them out when collecting surveys, and the classic pen explodes during class. I'm sure you've experienced … Continue reading Top Three Pens
And it doesn't look quite like what pictures you typically see, but bullet journalling is supposed to be about what works for the person using it. So I figured I'd take you on a walk through some of my less personal pages so you can see what I've done so far! Here is the journal … Continue reading So I started bullet journalling…
Date Completed: 2/13/2016 Rating: 8/10 This book was beyond emotionally complicated for me. There was a lot of hype surrounding this book, and I'm not sure if it lived up to my expectations around it. I loved the sweet romances, I enjoyed every character, although it seemed a little heavy on the Nina-Matthias drama. As … Continue reading Six of Crows ~ Leigh Bardugo
"Jenny hated being talked down to and and especially hated the use of the word ma'am" - page 156, Becoming Human, Eliza Green I agree with you about being talked down to, Jenny, but the ma'am is growing on me the longer I live in the South! This meme is hosted by Rebeca at Books and … Continue reading “Ma’am” ~ Random Fridays
Shout-out to the Book Addicted Reader for nominating me for the Liebster Award. Much like other new bloggers, I had no idea what this was, but I think it's a great way to share the love. So thanks, BAR. 11 Facts about Me: I just started fostering a cat, bringing our little house to a … Continue reading The Liebster Award
...and it was love at first sight! Duckie's been snooping around Lucy's cage but had never met her outside of an enclosed setting. It was great to see them getting along so well! Now if only we can get our foster cat on board, we'll have a lovely group of inter-species cuddlers!
Happy Friday everyone! Looking forward to getting out of the office in just a few hours, but while I'm here, here's a random quote: "He seized the closest Fjerdan, snapped his neck, and grabbed his rifle." - page 353, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo This meme is hosted by Rebeca at Books and Messy … Continue reading Random Fridays!
Date Completed: 2/3/2016 Rating: 7/10 This book spans just over one day. The time frame is 7:09am-7:16am the next day, roughly. There are no chapters, just flashbacks and notes of the time passing to orient the reader. It was a seamless book, and looking back on it now that I've reached the end, I was … Continue reading The depth of one day; If I Stay by Gayle Forman
