The Sunday Post | Weekly Wrap-up

Hey y’all! A great week at school. So much fun stuff. Watched a documentary about cannibals and got to talk about cultural relativism, which is a blast. Also lots and lots of math, which can suck it. Glad to find some time to read and get out of that head space.

I did one review! (click on the picture to see the review):

The Taxonomy of Love is SO EFFING CUTE. A story about a boy with Tourette Syndrome working his way through life using taxonomies and trying to label things neatly. So adorable.

A Taxonomy of Love

I’ve received quite a lot of book mail recently, which I am ecstatic about! I haven’t taken pictures of all of them quite yet, but here’s one I took that I am SO excited about (the pic is a little blurry because due to issues, this is a screenshot of the original image):

HOW CUTE IS THIS BOOK? I could not possible love more the juxtaposition of the title and the cutesy look. I cannot wait to dive into this one, and I think it may be the next one I do. So look for that review coming up!

I hope everyone’s having a great week, and I can’t wait to read your book!

By the way, my fellow book bloggers!

For some reason, I am not able to comment on .wordpress or .blogspot blogs!! I have no idea why, and if you have any ideas please let me know! But please know I always read your weekly updates and love them, even if for whatever dumb reason I can’t comment.

Hey y’all! So, wow. It has been dead around here, right? I have had an INSANE few months. Some really rough mental health stuff which I know I’ve spoken about a little, work problems, and then I just headed into my last semester of college! So things have been crazy, and I know the blog took an unscheduled hiatus because of it.

But I’m so glad to be back! I have a great schedule going and I’m so, so excited.

I did one review! (click on the picture to see the review):

The Hollow Girl by Hillary Monahan is definitely an interesting one, and one I wouldn’t recommend to everyone though I enjoyed it. A horror about a girl taking revenge on her rapist.

I also did a review a bit back that you should definitely check out if you haven’t! When I Cast Your Shadow is SO weird and so fun and I really adored it.

I have quite a few arcs, and I’m thinking about trying to be approved for a few adult titles soon! I also received some GORGEOUS books in the mail that I cannottttt wait to photograph!

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!

The Sunday Post | Weekly Wrap-Up #7

I’m linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

Hey y’all! I’ve skipped the last few of these, I know. I’m doing so well though, and I’m getting back in my routine!

I managed two reviews this week! (click on the picture to see the review):

Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman, which is one of my favorite books of the year by far!

And Sunshine is Forever by Kyle T. Cowan, which I had mixed feelings about.

It was really interesting that I chose these two, because I’ve been struggling so much with my own mental health and that is a huge factor in both of these novels. Maybe I did it subconsciously, haha.

I have all the ARCs. I never seem to get really into the ones I think I’m going to! I was so stoked for Mask of Shadows, and about 100 pages in and I’m still not enamored of it. But I have a bunch to choose from.

These Things I've Done by Rebecca Phillips

In really REALLY exciting news, I’m part of the blog tour for Rebecca Phillips’ These Things I’ve Done, which I reviewed here. So there will be a Q&A with Rebecca here on August Fourth! I hope you all come see. Her answers are as brilliant and insightful as I knew they would be!

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!

This week was better! I’m starting to feel better.

Inge at The Belgian Reviewer had me on her blog for a BFF post, so check it out!

Comic-Con was a blast! Thanks for everyone who wished me well. I got my Wednesday Addams on, and got to see Nathan Fillion, Catherine Tate, and James Marsters, so it was pretty great.

This will never happen again, so I took a screenshot!

I managed three reviews again this week! (click on the picture to see the review):

These Things I’ve Done, a heartbreaking YA contemporary which I adored.

The Lost Causes, a YA mystery/thriller about kids with super-powers, which I also really enjoyed.

And All the Wrong Chords, which I was unfortunately pretty meh about.

These Things I've Done by Rebecca Phillips All the Wrong Chords book

I have all the ARCs. I am really excited about Mask of Shadows, a fantasy with a gender fluid MC. And I think, unfortunately, I’m going to DNF The Beautiful Ones. I just cannnnooottt get into it.

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!



The Sunday Post | Weekly Wrap-Up #5

I’m linking up with The Sunday Post hosted by Kimberly @Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

This has been a week. I had a lot of personal stuff going on (still do) and depression is rearing it’s ugly head, so thank the universe that I have a ton to read until I get myself together.

And I’m trying to shake it off, because in a few short hours I’ll be getting ready for Comic-Con! I’ve never gone in Denver, and I know it’s pretty lame compared to San Diego (which is the one I’ve been to previously, many and many a year ago) but I’m going to fangirl over some of the kids from Stranger Things and Nathan Fillion and some people from Buffy.

Also I am three ahead of my Goodreads reading goals! So woot woot.

I managed three reviews this week (click on the picture to see the review):

I am SO glad to say that I loved all three books. I was able to not only break my streak of bad reviews, but start a new streak of good ones.

I reviewed Girls Made of Snow and Glass, which is a feminist Snow White re-telling and it’s fantastic.

Consider and Contribute are books 1 and 2 in the Holo series, and man they are good.

I’m still up to my ass in ARC’s, and have more coming in the mail. Which I love, because I always have something to read.

I also won a few Goodreads giveaways, so I’ll be getting those someday.

I hope everyone is having an incredible week, and I can’t wait to read your posts!
