January 2018 Wrap-Up & Book Haul!

What a fun beginning to the new year! I can’t believe January is already over! I felt like it just started!

Anyway, this was a fun month for me. I celebrated my 29th birthday by buying books! Okay, well, I bought myself one book and the rest were bought with gift cards or were given to me as gifts! And I actually surprised myself by reading my normal average number of books. I doubt I’ll do so well the rest of the months due to personal issues and a general hiatus I plan on taking (more on that in a later post).

Review: “Into the Bright Unknown” by Rae Carson

Well… Okay. I don’t know what to say. I liked this series, but I don’t think I love this series. I think of the 3 books, the 2nd book, Like a River Glorious is my favorite.

I think “unique” is a very subject word, so while you may not think these are unique, I do!

“Waiting on” Wednesday: All the October releases!

October has some fantastic releases! I started filling up my calendar with book releases so I don’t forget. Goodreads comes in handy with its lists on monthly YA releases. I write down all the ones I’m interested/excited for and October is just ripe with them! I’ll just highly the first two weeks of October (including yesterday, since it was new release Tuesday. Hope you don’t mind that I cheat. 😉 ) and then do another post as a follow-up. 🙂

Top Ten Tuesday: Series I’ve Been Meaning to Start…but Haven’t.

lol Isn’t this all of us? One of the main reasons I’m always hesitant to start series is that most of them have a lot of hype surrounding them, and what if they don’t live up to my expectations? That’s a constant source of worry for me as I read any series. Haha.

Anyway, here are 10 I’ve been meaning to start but…well, haven’t!
