Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Books On My Spring 2019 TBR. I have done this one in the past and am excited to do it again. I tried picking books that I mostly own. I am trying to read more of my owned books instead of buying. I also added some books for the Magical Readathon. My full TBR for that will be up sometime next week. So let’s dive in! Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring 2019 TBR”

Girls with Sharp Sticks By Suzanne Young
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
Pages: 400 pages
Release Date: March 19 2019
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Plot: The Girls of Innovations Academy are beautiful and well-behaved—it says so on their report cards. Under the watchful gaze of their Guardians, the all-girl boarding school offers an array of studies and activities, from “Growing a Beautiful and Prosperous Garden” to “Art Appreciation” and “Interior Design.” The girls learn to be the best society has to offer. Absent is the difficult math coursework, or the unnecessary sciences or current events. They are obedient young ladies, free from arrogance or defiance. Until Mena starts to realize that their carefully controlled existence may not be quite as it appears.
As Mena and her friends begin to uncover the dark secrets of what’s actually happening there—and who they really are—the girls of Innovations will find out what they are truly capable of. Because some of the prettiest flowers have the sharpest thorns.
Why I Need This Book: So last year I realized I really like books set in boarding schools. So when I heard about this book I was 100% on board. Plus I’ve heard good things about Suzanne’s previous series. I always wanted to pick it up but never did. So I thought I might as well check this out.
Have you gotten to read this early? If so what are your thoughts on it? If not, are you guys interested in picking this book up? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. I seriously can’t wait for it to come out!
Hey guys!!! It’s time again for another Top Ten Tuesday hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Standalone Books That Need a Sequel. Most of these books are great standalones but honestly I could use more of the characters in my life so I feel that’s the main reason for picking them. I would even be fine with a novella. So let’s dive in to see which books I picked. Continue reading “Top Ten Tuesday: Standalone Books That Need a Sequel”

➽ AUTO-APPROVED: WHO’S ONE AUTHOR WHOSE BOOKS YOU AUTOMATICALLY WANT TO READ, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY ARE ABOUT?
Most the stuff I request on Netgalley is Thrillers. So I’ll usually go for authors I know. Ruth Ware has become an author I’ll always request on Netgalley. Also Riley Sager has become an auto-request author.
➽ REQUEST: WHAT MAKES YOU WANT TO REQUEST A BOOK ON NETGALLEY?
I always go for thrillers. So I’ll go for books I see people are talking about and said they said they really enjoyed. I also will request books from authors I’ve read from before and really enjoyed. Sometimes I’ll request books if I hear a friend talk about it.
➽ FEEDBACK RATIO: DO YOU REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ? IF NOT, HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHAT BOOKS TO REVIEW?
I don’t review every book I read. I do for Netgalley. I want to work on getting better at doing more reviews though. I usually review books that I feel I have a lot of thoughts on. I will do this with books I like and books I don’t like. I usually don’t do DNF reviews.
➽ BADGES: IF YOU COULD CREATE ONE BADGE TO DISPLAY ON YOUR BLOG, WHAT WOULD IT BE FOR?
I would like a badge dealing with genres I read. I would like to know how many different genres I’ve read and reviewed. I think that would be really fun.
➽ WISH FOR IT: WHAT’S ONE BOOK THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY DYING TO READ?
Top of my list is Lock Every Door By Riley Sager. I am so excited for this book! It is on Netgalley right now. I did end up requesting it but the publisher said right now those copies are only for journalists. She did say if I do have a book blog I could possibly get a copy close to publication. So hopefully that ends up happening. *Fingers crossed*
➽ 2018 NETGALLEY CHALLENGE: WHAT WAS THE LAST BOOK THAT YOU RECEIVED AS AN ARC THAT YOU REVIEWED? IF YOU’VE NEVER RECEIVED AN ARC, WHAT’S THE LAST BOOK YOU REVIEWED?
King of Fools By Amanda Foody is the last book I received. I have not read it yet. It is part of my March TBR.
My Squirrel Days By Ellie Kemper is the last arc I just read and reviewed that I got from Netgalley.
➽ I Tag:
Anyone who uses Netgalley! I would like to see you do this tag.
Hey guys! I am so excited to share with you my February Wrap-up. I feel I ended up getting a lot of reading in this month. I almost read 10 books, which is great. I feel overall I wasn’t in love with the books I read. I participated in Thrillerathon. Sadly two of the books I picked, I did not end up liking. I did end up finding a new 5 star read which I am excited to share with you. I feel March is off to a better start. I hope it stays that way. Anyway, let’s dive in to see what I read in February.

Hey guys! It’s time for another Down The TBR Hole which was created by Lia @Lost In A Story! The closer we get to the end of this, the closer it is to books I recently added to my TBR. So it’s getting a lot harder finding books I don’t really want to read. There are still a couple I see that I’m no longer interested in. There are even some that I plan on picking up soon so excited about that. Anyway, let’s dive in and see what books pop up for this week. Continue reading “Down The TBR Hole #68”

Hey guys! I am so excited to share with you the movies I watched in February. I ended up watching more than two movies so I was very excited about that.
