25 Bookish Facts About Me

I haven’t blogged in two weeks… I miss you all so much! Taking 4 AP classes second semester of senior year has certainly caught up with me. I’m hoping to start blogging regularly again, but forgive me if sometimes I don’t blog for a week or so. For today’s post I decided to do the super fun “25 Bookish Facts About Me” tag that I’ve seen a lot of booktubers doing lately, so here we go!

  1. I’ve been in love with reading ever since I learned how, so my reading story isn’t that unique or interesting.
  2. The most books I’ve read in a year is 108 (last year), click here to see which ones I read!
  3. I don’t have a favorite genre… They’re all so good!!
  4. My favorite reading spot is my couch in my sunroom; I love natural light reading.
  5. Both my dad and grandma are huge readers so that’s probably why I love reading so much.
  6. I am addicted to book buying, meaning I rarely used the library which makes me sad (libraries are awesome, free books when ever you want them!!!). Read more

January Wrap Up #2

It’s officially the second month in 2016… Woohoo! 2016 is my high school graduation year, so the sooner we get to graduation, the better (senioritis is kicking in already). In the second half of January I read a total of six books, which is one more than I read in the first part of January, for a total of eleven books read! Without further ado, let’s get into the books I read…

  1. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (5/5)
    I’m going to keep this review short because I already wrote a full length review that I will link here. Basically, this book is about an alien invasion that comes in waves and a girl name Cassie who has survived all the waves and her adventures in this crazy situation. This book is by far my favorite book I’ve read this year, it was absolutely perfect. Go out and read it NOW!
  2. Saga Vol. 2 by Brian K Vaughn and Fiona Staples (3.75/5)Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 8.51.17 PM
    The Saga series is a unique graphic novel series that is like Romeo and Juliet but in space (sounds awesome right?). The first volume was a 5/5 read for me, but this volume fell a little flat in my opinion. It seemed too short and I didn’t think much was added to the story. But, I read the first volume in September, so part of my disappointment with this volume could be because I forgot some of the characters and parts of the plotline. Don’t get me wrong, though, this graphic novel was still awesome and I had a lot of fun while reading it. Overall this was a solid continuation and I am excited to continue on with the rest of the series!
  3. The Battle of the Labryinth by Rick Riordan (4/5)
    Since this is the fourth book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, there’s not too much I can say about the plot without giving anything away. This book continues on with Percy’s crazy adventures and adds to the buildup for the last novel. I really enjoyed Percy’s quest in this book, it’s probably my favorite out of all the adventures he goes on! Plus, there was soooo many Annabeth and Percy moments *squeals.* After reading this book I absolutely needed to pick up the final book in the series! Read more
