Sleeping Beauties – Review

"The world didn't seem weird then; the world didn't seem like the world at all, but like another place that you had been flipped into." Out of nowhere, women who fall asleep are covered in a cocoon like substance. A gauze that sustains them, protects them, and if broken incites a violence from the sleeping [...]

YOU

"That's how privileged people think: Lie unless you know that you can't get away with lying." Meet Joe. Joe works in a bookstore. Joe believes in love at first sight. He believes that love takes work. And Joe is willing to put in the work. So when an aspiring writer comes into his store and [...]

Sorority – Review

"Pledges don't want pity. They just want to endure." Before I begin, this book has some serious triggers in it. Eating disorders, self-harm, drug use, abuse, and addition, animal cruelty, bullying, and I'm sure I missed a few. Basically, if it's upsetting and triggering, it's probably in the book. Sorority is a difficult book to [...]

July Wrap-Up

Alright 2018, you need to seriously slow THE F DOWN!!! I know I say this every month, but I really think this time I misplaced a month or three. They were just there... *sigh* Anyhoo, I suppose I should just proceed with my wrap-up and leave my disbelief over the monumental levels of procrastination that [...]

Beartown – Review

"It's only so important that a seventeen-year-old in a private garden has been standing here since he got frostbite on his cheeks one night ten years ago, firing puck and puck with the weight of an entire community on his shoulders." Before I start, to say that there are trigger warnings for this book is [...]

June Wrap-Up

And just like that, the year is halfway over!!! June was an interesting month. I went to BookCon with @bookloverscoffee and had THE TIME OF MY LIFE!!! I should piece together a post about that, now that I think about it. 🤔 But I haven't yet, because things sort of fell apart when I got home. [...]

April Wrap Up

I meant to post this yesterday, for #Maythe4thbewithyou!!! But in all honesty, #RevengeoftheFifth is just as appropriate. I mean, we need the Force to power through all these book right? And when you look at the stack you just read and feel pretty accomplished. Only to be smacked in the face with the rest of [...]

The Cruel Prince – Review

"I can see why humans succumb to the beautiful nightmare of the Court, why they willingly drown in it." Oh boy. It's been nearly a month since I've read this and I still can't decide whether I like this book. I don't hate it, but I definitely don't love it. Even though I really want [...]

March Wrap Up

What is it they say about March? In like a lion, out like a lamb? Well, that certainly was the case in Las Vegas anyway. Cold weather and winds gave way to warmer weather and Spring, or the ten minutes we get here in the desert, appears to finally be here. 42/125 - Goodreads Challenge [...]
