ARC Review: “A Reaper at the Gates” by Sabaa Tahir

I don’t know what to say, or how to even write the right words to convey how I feel. A Repear at the Gates was one of my most anticipated releases of 2018. When luck swung my way a few weeks ago and I managed to get an ARC, my heart burst with joy.

If you’ve been eagerly awaiting this third installment of the Ember Quartet, you won’t be disappointed. My heart has been equally stomped on, burst from pure happiness, swooning with absolute emotion. I know Sabaa is a great writer–there’s simply no question–and she’s been one of my favorite authors since I first read An Ember in the Ashes. But A Reaper at the Gates has sealed Sabaa as a master storyteller and destroyer of my heart.

ARC Review: “Legendary” by Stephanie Garber

I promised I would post my review about this book even though I’m currently on a hiatus. I had hoped to finish it before the book’s release date on May 29, but unfortunately, that obviously didn’t happen. 😛

Thanks to NetGalley and Flatiron Books for giving me a free, digital copy in exchange for an honest review!

Non-bookish Post #9: Time for a Hiatus!

So…here’s the thing: I’ve contemplated a hiatus for a while now. I actually meant to take one back in January, soon after my birthday, but that never came to fruition. I was serious at work on revising the final draft on my book, and I was getting in over my head with the whole blogging, bookstagramming, writing, and working full-time.

I think it’s finally come head-to-head, and I realize I need to take a hiatus or else my brain might just explode. Work is and will continue to get busy. I’m in the middle of rereading a bunch of books because sequels keep coming out. And I want to focus more on my writing as well.

April’s Wrap-Up and Book Haul!

Another month in 2018 gone already! I can’t believe it! I’ve just got two more months of work until I’m on summer break, too. (Yes, I’m already counting down the days, so sue me. 😛 )

But that’s not what we’re here to talk about, is it?! I knew April would be fairly “good” in terms of book buying, especially with the North Texas Teen Book Festival just a couple of weeks ago. I won’t be quite as generous this month (my wallet will thank me), but there are two signings I plan to go during this month, and I’ve already pre-ordered two books for that event so…yeah. 🙂
