The Reading Quest Week One Update

The Reading Quest Week One Update

So things in The Reading Quest are going a little slowly. (If you haven’t, check out my sign-up post for this challenge, and Aentee’s @Read At Midnight’s intro post!) Having to finish a book that I was not totally into before I could start my first book for this challenge didn’t help, but I think it’s going to go like gangbusters from here. I’ve already finished one book for this challenge and am working hard on two others. That’s right, two books….

Book Review – Mayqueen Murders

Book Review – Mayqueen Murders

 The May Queen MurdersSarah JudeNo3/5 Stars Stay on the roads. Don’t enter the woods. Never go out at night. Those are the rules in Rowan’s Glen, a remote farming community in the Missouri Ozarks where Ivy Templeton’s family has lived for centuries. It’s an old-fashioned way of life, full of superstition and traditions, and sixteen-year-old Ivy loves it. The other kids at school may think the Glen kids are weird, but Ivy doesn’t care—she has her cousin Heather as her…

The Reading Quest Read-A-Thon Sign Up

The Reading Quest Read-A-Thon Sign Up

Last summer I did the #ReadThemAllAThon, and it was so much fun, and now Aentee @ Read at Midnight is back with another killer read-a-thon, and I am so in. This one is based on video games (omg yes!) and has all kinds of ways to read, and paths to follow. Honestly, I’m still not set on my real path for this one. Not gonna lie, I planned out every path and there’s absolutely no chance that I’ll get to them…

Someone Got a Facelift

Someone Got a Facelift

I felt like the place needed a bit of a facelift. Before I got back into putting out the massive backlog of reviews, I just felt like I absolutely had to make my small kingdom look a little more uniform. Then I found Fox+Hazel’s blog and fell in l o v e. Seriously, her work is amazing, and the florals are courtesy of her.   Aren’t they gorgeous? The insanely frightening pile of reviews is coming I promise, I have them planned…

Caraval – I Had Such Hopes

Caraval – I Had Such Hopes

Caraval was on my TBR list for SO LONG I can’t tell you how excited I was for it. I got it in an Owlcrate box and was so happy because honestly, I needed this book. “It’s like the Night Circus!” they said. “You’ll love it!” they said. And I did. Ish. But not in the way that I was led to believe I would. This is the book equivalent of that house in your town. You know, the beautiful, old,…

Obviously I’m Bad at this Blogging Thing

Obviously I’m Bad at this Blogging Thing

Hi Guys So, very clearly, I’m not great at blogging as a thing that I do. After having to move like we did, I kind of fell off all of the wagons. I wasn’t reading, wasn’t writing, definitely wasn’t blogging, wasn’t doing much of anything unless you count rewatching shows that I’ve seen at least twelve times before. I don’t know how I got into that hole, and I wasn’t sure for the longest time how to get out of…

TV Tuesday – Stranger Things Chapter 4

TV Tuesday – Stranger Things Chapter 4

So I’m finally back on the Stranger Things (and TV Tuesday) bandwagon and let me tell you, it’s been SO HARD to not binge all of this while packing/unpacking. Somehow I managed, though, and I’m quite proud of myself for it. AND I’ve somehow managed to not have the whole thing spoiled, which is basically a miracle. Though everyone keeps telling me to “just finish the series” when I mention my hatred of Hopper. Apparently he redeems himself at some…

Surprise Blogging Break – Where I’ve Been

Surprise Blogging Break – Where I’ve Been

Hey guys. So as you might (not) have noticed, I’ve taken a wee break from my little internet kingdom, and let me tell you it wasn’t all out of laziness. (Some of it might have been, but mostly not.) October was a little strange for me. I started out feeling a little under the weather, with all the new fall allergies rolling in and everything. And that’s all fine and good, and I got through it. And then. THEN. We…

TV Tuesday – Stranger Things Chapter 3

TV Tuesday – Stranger Things Chapter 3

So with Chapter 3 of Stranger Things I’m developing some theories finally! This show just keeps getting better and better. I mean, the soundtrack alone is just magnificent, and that’s only one  part of it. Honestly, I can really see what the hype is about now and I have to say that it is very well deserved. There are so many things that happen in this episode but it doesn’t feel like too much. ***Spoilers below, obviously, so just watch out! ***…

Book Review – And I Darken by Kiersten White

Book Review – And I Darken by Kiersten White

When I heard about And I Darken I was super excited. I’ve done a few papers on Dracula and Vlad and all the history there, and really I just wanted to see where a female Vlad would have ended up. I’m not sure how I feel about this book, as excited as I was for it. There was so much opportunity and so many things didn’t happen that could have. I really wanted to love this book. I actually listened to the…
