T5W: Fictional Places I’d Take a Date to

Now let’s be real, folks. It would be a miracle if I ever asked a guy on a date because that’s just not me. Okay, so I’m married but let me tell you, I never would have been able to have the courage to ask my now-husband on a date. Good thing he asked me first. LOL 😂

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters on the Naughty List

I think I’ve done something fairly similar… Or maybe when I see this topic, all I can think about are villains? (I did make a Top 10 Tuesday post about villains a while back…) But I supposed this list could focus on general crappy characters, not necessarily villains.

So let’s do this!

Review: “Fairest” by Marissa Meyer

Well, I’m not really sure what to think of this. Do I now feel as if I needed to read this to appreciate the story more? Not really. Do I think it adds to the story? Yes, but only a little. Look, y’all know I’m a sucker for backstories so you’d think I’d be all over this but I’m not and I think it’s because Levana didn’t have to turn out the way she did at all. The truth is, she could have been the complete opposite. Continue reading

Review: “Cress” (The Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer

Look, it’s not that I don’t think this is a great series because it is. I don’t even think I can pick a favorite character, though I’m prone towards Thorne because it’s hilarious, and I think my favorite couple might just be Scarlet and Thorne because he’s dark and brooding but Cress and Thorne come in a close second because they’re just totes adorbs.

But I’m not as enamored with the series as I hoped to be. I don’t even know why! What’s wrong with me? I don’t know. There’s no excuse. That’s just how it is. #sorrynotsorry Or something like that…

Review: “Scarlet” by Marissa Meyer

I’ve managed to tackle a majority of September’s TBR thanks to my local library and their audiobooks. I listened to Cinder on audiobook a few months ago and enjoyed it, so I was excited to dive back into the Lunar Chronicles world with the next book in the series, Scarlet.

While it’s safe to say I wasn’t wholly disappointed, I didn’t like this book as much as Cinder. It’s also safe to say that I will continue to listen to the rest of the series in audiobook format because the narrator continues to do a fantastic job!

Review: “Cinder” by Marissa Meyer

So this is another book series that I’ve seen everywhere on Instagram and its praises have been sung on Goodreads as well. I actually have had this book on my shelf for months but I’m weird and had to buy the entire series before I started reading it. 🙃

Well, I finally found Cress, the 3rd book in the series, to complete my collection for less than $9 at my local bookstore. Cinder was on my July TBR and I was so excited to finally get to it. I checked it out from my library as an audiobook but I didn’t listen to it as often because I wasn’t driving to and from work. I listened to about half before I had to return it and then I just picked it off my shelves.

Needless to say, I enjoyed it. 🙂 Especially when I realized that it was like Sailor Moon… Continue reading

June’s OwlCrate Unboxing!

I received this box about two weeks ago but I wanted to wait a while because I know some people don’t get their boxes as quickly as I do. 🙂

The theme for this box was “Royalty” and if you know anything about me, I am basically obsessed with all things royal (but I love the British royal family the most <3) so getting this box was a no brainer for me!

Weekend Book Haul (Part 2)

I’m very late posting this but… Time to continue on with my book haul. If you missed part 1, you can check it out here. I bought all these books with coupons! Gosh, who doesn’t love coupons, when it comes to buying books? That hardly ever happens! XD

I broke my book buying ban a lot lately…but I have no regrets! ^______^ But now I gotta get serious because April is soon and the North Texas Teen Book Festival is less than a month away! 😀
