My Best Books of 2017 So Far [Top Ten Tuesday]

My Best Books of 2017 So Far [Top Ten Tuesday]

Bookish Lists, Top Ten Tuesday 2

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Since I’ve only read about 30 books this year, it feels unfair to list ten, or even five, books for this category. All of these books are contemporary YA, unfortunately. I love contemporary YA but I feel like I absolutely need to branch out a bit with the genres I read. These are my top 5 star rated reads this year! Here are my three best books of 2017! 1…. Read more »

Let’s Talk About Periods in YA

Let’s Talk About Periods in YA

Discussion 6

Personally, my period is something that I talk about frequently. I mean, how could I not? It happens so often. And while I absolutely wished it was something that occurred less often (ugh cramps are the worst), I wish it was a topic YA discussed MORE often. Because it’s a part of life. Even those that do not menstruate are affected or influenced – they are sure to know someone who does, whether that’s their parent, friend, or significant other. So… Read more »

Top Six Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t [Top Ten Tuesday]

Bookish Lists, Top Ten Tuesday 4

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish Hello! June is almost over and I feel super weird about it. I started my editorial internship two weeks ago so I’ve been busier than usual. It is also why I’m rushing to write this post at noon today (Tuesday) rather than having it scheduled to be up at 8am today like usual. Oh well. It is also why this list only has SIX lovely items instead of ten…. Read more »

Review: Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

Review: Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

5 Stars, Reviews 2

I am a little bit of a nerd when it comes to plants. When I was a kid, science and horticulture were my favorite subjects to learn about. When I saw Lab Girl on sale at Book Outlet, I jumped at the opportunity! Lab Girl was incredibly entertaining, knowledgeable, and had wonderful life messages.  It made me laugh, cringe, and it inspired me as well. Hope Jahren is one of the most credible and accomplished American female scientists who specializes in botany. She… Read more »

Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Review: The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

5 Stars, Reviews 2

The Hate U Give is SUCH a powerful and emotional book. It’s nearly impossible to express just how much this book made me feel. It’s rare to come across a book that does so much in such an unbelievably great way. Angie Thomas manages to create a moving, powerful story with a message that NEEDS to be heard. But at the same time, she incorporates so many elements of everyday teenage life – friends, school, romantic relationships, familial relationships. LITERALLY… Read more »

Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

Review: The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey

4 Stars, Reviews 0

The Infinite Sea wasn’t quite as good as The 5th Wave. Although I thoroughly enjoyed The Infinite Sea, I was really hoping to have the same reading experience that I had with the first book. Both followed a similar pattern in the plot, so it wasn’t like the sequel was off topic or anything. BUT, when I read the first book I stayed up all night long reading. I finished it in one sitting. So I was a bit disappointed when I wasn’t as… Read more »

Wattpad Review and Interview – “Bed Warmer” by CometsofMind

Wattpad Review and Interview – “Bed Warmer” by CometsofMind

Reviews, Wattpad 3

In the three years I’ve been on Wattpad, the site has gained millions of members, reinvented its layout, and continues to have a flourishing community across the globe. With all the works Wattpad has to offer, however, it can be difficult to sift through columns of stories and find a good, original read. “Bed Warmer” kind of snuck up on me. I probably found it browsing someone’s profile, and while I’m not usually a fan of “noun/definition” summaries, this one… Read more »
