I started this blog to review books and talk about them with other people. Because of my heavy school load, posts will be sporadic and unreliable. I will post a review every time I finish a book.
In my reviews, I try my best to be spoiler free, and give warnings when it can’t be avoided. If you plan on reading a book series and I’ve reviewed more than just the first book, I recommend that you avoid reading any reviews or summaries of the later books; they can/will contain spoilers!
I respect the opinions of my other book lovers, even if they don’t feel the same way that I do about a book. All I ask is for respectful comments. I might reply and be willing to discuss why you feel differently than I do, and you bringing up something that could change my mind!
I have my own system for giving books stars, and I’ll give a bit explanation about what each means.
★ – I hated it or didn’t finish it
★★ – I finished but didn’t like it
★★★ – It kept my interest; basically meaning that I liked it and it entertained me long enough to finish but that I probably wouldn’t read again (I will reread for book series, however)
★★★★ – Will read again; it was a good book and will read again if I get a chance
★★★★★ – I loved it!
School has been going really well for me. I have made the Dean’s List two semesters in a row and an very excited about it! After my grueling semester in the fall (6 class and working 20-25 hours a week) I am happy to say I’m only taking 4 classes, doing a small externship, and only working 8-12 hours (mostly on weekends). I thought this would mean I would be able to read more, but sadly that isn’t true. So I have taken up to listening to books as I drive (a half hour commute to school/work, then another half hour home) so I finish a book every 4 – 8 days.
I tend to read more young adult fantasy novels, but some of my favorites are just regular fiction too! I’m willing to try to read any genre of book and more than happy to talk to anyone about them.
All Book covers found on this blog are from Goodreads unless noted otherwise. I have also decided that if I want to post spoilers it will be on Goodreads because I can hide them in my review! There, you might also get to see how many stars I give a book before my review is posted.
Also, feel free to add me as a friend on Goodreads, there is a link in the sidebar!
At the top of every page I added an Updates widget. There you can see the books I’m reading and what book review is coming up. Also I’ll add the date I will hopefully be posting the review on.
Feel free to comment or contact me here. I’m always looking for more books to add to my to-read list so please leave your book recommendations too!
