February 2017 Wrap-Up!

This is a few days late but hey, at least I did it! Normally I just forget or get too caught up with actual life, and end up–well, not doing it at all, lol.

February was a decent month for me. I tried to get through some books by authors I went to see at the North Texas Teen Book Festival (post about that coming soon) this past weekend, and I think I did all right.

FairyLoot’s February Unboxing!

Ahhhhh! I’m so excited to share my very first FairyLoot box with you all! I’ve heard amazing things about FairyLoot but have been hesitant to buy because the shipping is a bit pricey for the US and brings the box’s price to $50! Being an OwlCrate girl but needing a subscription box, I decided to take the plunge by skipping an OwlCrate in order to buy FairyLoot.

Well, I wasn’t disappointed! In fact, I loved every single thing in FairyLoot’s box! That rarely happens. Sometimes there will be an item from OwlCrate that I’m not fond of and mostly because I can’t get any use out of the item (especially jewelry since I don’t wear a lot), but I’m glad to say I’ve already used items from FairyLoot!

ARC Review: “You’re Welcome, Universe” by Whitney Gardner

Thanks to NetGalley and Random House Children’s/Knopf Books for Young Readers for giving me a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

The first thing that attracted me to this book was the cover. It’s gorgeous, and it features a PoC! Better than that, a character who’s deaf, which I don’t read or see much about in YA literature (unless I’ve been reading all the wrong books?). I’m glad there for the representation, and I hope if you pick this up, I’ll enjoy it as I did.

Review: “The Sun Is Also a Star” by Nicola Yoon

You know how we have those books sitting our shelves for months and months at a time before we actually get to them? I mean, I can’t be the only one, right?

Right?

Well, I hope so.

When I heard that Nicola Yoon was going to be at the North Texas Teen Book Festival this weekend, I knew I had to read her books. I felt obligated, too, because I felt strange meeting an author while I haven’t read their books. Anyways, that has been remedied! lol
