Books Read

  • Girls of Paper and Fire: 4 stars | I’d heard phenomenal things about this book, and it certainly did not disappoint! It was definitely very dark and intense though, that’s for sure!
  • The Way You Make Me Feel: 1.5 stars | I loved this premise but I really really hated the main character with all my heart and soul.

Life Happenings

  • Happy belated pi day everyone! I made a delicious pi pie on March 14th and it made my nerdy heart so happy!
  • I’m STUNNED by the new Aladdin trailer! I still think the genie and Jafar are horribly cast and look terrible, but oh my gosh the actress playing Jasmine can really sing! That clip of Whole New World gave me absolute chills!

Books Read

  • Stay Sweet: 3.5 stars | I definitely had a few issues with this book and its characters, but it was so sweet omg so much ice cream I’m in love.
  • My Almost Flawless Tokyo Dream Life: 1.5 stars | I mean…this really doesn’t feel like a novel as much as it feels like a travel guide or wikipedia article…
  • A Prom To Remember: 2.5 stars | This was such a cute premise (just look at that cover!) but with seven POVs in 300 pages, I think it was trying to do too much.

Books Read

  • You’d Be Mine: 4.5 stars | This book did an incredible job of describing music and musicians, which really connected with me, and I love it so much.
  •  Nightblood: 3.5 stars | I love loved the fantasy part of this book, but I absolutely hated the romance, so I guess 3.5 stars is a good average…
  • The Wicked King: 5 stars | OHMYGOD WOEIFJDSKLOIEWFJSDKL I love Jude x Cardan and I didn’t see anything coming and I need the third book more than I need life.
  • That Inevitable Victorian Thing: 2 stars | This book had such a great premise and I was so excited but the world building was a mess and overall I didn’t like it.

  • A Spark of White Fire: 4 stars | The romance was weird but this science fantasy world was so amazing and I can’t wait for the sequel!
  • The Gilded Wolves: 4 stars | I was getting some serious Six of Crows vibes from this book and I loved the heist and diverse characters.
  • Siege and Storm: 3.5 stars | Love square…why? Nikolai is bae though and I love him to death.
  • Ruin and Rising: 4 stars | This book wasn’t incredible but I did really enjoy and now I can read King of Scars!!!

  • The Sound and the Fury: 1 star | I had to read this for English class and I HATED it so much stream of consciousness is incomprehensible and yeah I know nothing.
  • The Girl At Midnight: 3.5 stars | I loved this cool urban fantasy with monsters in secret underground worlds…but it was also awfully similar to Daughter of Smoke and Bone…
  • Once A Witch: 2.5 stars | This book was kind of annoying and underdeveloped and instalove and cliches so yeah.

I read a total of 11 books this month! My average rating was 3.4 stars, which is not the best for me, but I had some really amazing reads in there (wickedkingaosidfjkasoifdklj) so I’m happy!

And some of my favorite posts from other bloggers ❤

Also, if you haven’t seen, Kelly from Another Book in the Wall started a directory for Teen Book Bloggers! I’m a teen and as someone who sometimes feels overshadowed and intimidated by people who are not young adults reading young adult books, I couldn’t be more enthusiastic about it! Check it out here!

Lately I’ve been messing around with my blog’s branding/images/etc, and I drew myself a profile pic with Adobe Illustrator! My old one was a picture of my bookshelf that I hated, but I love this one because it goes with my brand, hammock of books, with the reading in the hammock and all. I’m also super proud that I drew it myself because I’m definitely not good at drawing. I thought about trying to do vector style drawing, but I’m not good enough to do that my blog has watercolor images, like these flower dividers, so I love this one better. Please validate me tell me what you think!

Books Read

  • The Gilded Wolves: 4 stars | This book was so hyped and also it reminded me of Six of Crows so much I haven’t decided if that’s good or bad but I did really like it.
  • Siege and Storm: 3.5 stars | Not as good as the first book, and the love triangle (square? pyramid?) was infuriating but I did enjoy!
  • Ruin and Rising: 4 stars | I’m kind of indecisive about whether or not I like the ending, but this was my favorite book of the trilogy and now I can read King of Scars!

  • The Sound and the Fury: 1 star | I had to read this for AP English in school and I hated it so much also I didn’t even understand it at all and I’m fully convinced that Faulkner was doing hard drugs and high as hell when he wrote it.
  • The Girl at Midnight: 3.5 stars | This one reminded me a lot of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, which I loved, so good yay but also too similar.

Life Happenings

  • I went to my high school’s winter formal dance (like homecoming and prom). Even though it’s my senior year this is my first dance I’ve been to and I had so much fun ❤
  • I’ve been spending a little less time blogging lately because I’ve been spending way more time writing! I’m about 30k words into the second draft of my WIP and it’s definitely much better than before so I’m excited for it!

Books Read

  • Nightblood: 3 stars | Although I loved the fantasy world here, the romance was so terrible it destroyed the book for me.
  • The Wicked King: 5 stars | aoisldkfasoilkdjfwoilkasjdfwoilaksdjf all I can say is that if I don’t get a copy of The Queen of Nothing in my hands pronto I might die.
