Book vs. Movie: A Wrinkle in Time

Hello there!

This is going to be a quick post about my thoughts on the A Wrinkle in Time book and movie. I would do a list of all the similarities and difference but then we will be here forever. So, I will just tell you how I felt about both the book and the movie. Now, let’s get started.

First, off like any book being made into a movie, there were many changes. I feel that the changes that were made were fine. I think that the movie still delivered the message that the book originally gave in a cool way. The movie had all the main components that were Continue reading “Book vs. Movie: A Wrinkle in Time”


Read-A-Thon by Zoe Results

Hello there!

This past Saturday, March 3rd Zoe from ReadbyZoe on YouTube hosted her fifth 24-hour read-a-thon. In this post, I will let you guys know my experience participating in Zoe’s read-a-thon. Hope you enjoy.

Saturday, March 3rd, 12:00 AM

It hits midnight and I am so excited to start reading. This time around Zoe didn’t set a theme for the read-a-thon so I made up my own theme. Which was to read the library books I currently have out. The first book I picked up was The Bad Seed by William March. Like I have said before I learned about this book from Pretty Little Liars Season 1 Episode 18 The Badass Seed. On PLL they are putting on the play of The Bad Seed, the plot of it sounded so interesting I decided to read the book.



The Bad Seed is about this little eight-year-old girl named Rhoda Penmark and bad things seem to happen when she is around and her mother starts to question why that is.

I started reading at midnight and for some reason, I kept wanting to fall asleep while reading. It wasn’t that the book was boring me I just wanted to go to sleep. Which is odd because I stay up way past midnight most nights. So, there was no reason for me to already be tired. So, I read for an hour once I was done with chapter one.

1:00 AM

Once it hit one Am I knew that I had to do something to wake myself up. So, I made myself some green tea and drank that plus some water. Thankfully I was feeling better with a bit more energy and ready to get back to The Bad Seed.


Around 1:30 AM I got back to reading and a got a few chapters in. Around 4:30AM I decided it was time to take a power nap. I thought okay I’ll sleep for three or four hours.


I believe I woke up around this time…don’t quote me on that. Once I was up from my power nap I got back to reading. Until around 3:00pm I believe I would read a chapter take a break, read a chapter take a break.


Around this time I had received some news about my family that I felt it wasn’t right to continue on with the read-a-thon. I was also filming my experience so after receiving the news I stopped filming updates. That said I did not finish the read-a-thon.

Pages Read: 

I read a total of 139 pages in the hours that I did participate in the read-a-thon. My main thought about The Bad Seed is that isn’t as exciting as I thought it was going to be. It is still an interesting book but not what I was expecting. I still have around seventy page left so I will let you know my thoughts once I finish the book.

That is it! My experience participating in Zoe’s 24-hour read-a-thon. Let me know in the comments if you participated and what you read. If you did not let me know how much have you read in a span of 24 hours.

Look out for my vlog coming out on Friday, March 9th on Tangled Up in Books.

Until next time book nerds,

Review: Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao

Hello there!


In this post, I will be reviewing Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao. This is a spoiler free review so you can continue reading with no fear. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns is the debut novel for Dao published by Philomel Books an imprint of Penguin Random House. This book was released on October 10th 2017. The second book Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix is set to release on October 23rd, 2018. I believe this is a duology.

Coming Up in February and March!

Hello there!

In today’s post I will be telling you what I have planned to read in February and March. I have decided to start doing my TBR’s every three months instead of monthly. That way it allows me to have a longer amount of time to read the books that I set out to read. Since I thought about this after I had already done my January TBR this month it will just be February and March. My next TBR will be in April for April, May and June. The next July for July, August and September. Lastly, October for October, November and December. I really hope that this schedule works out better. Now on to the books.

1. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns by Julie C. Dao


  • I started this book the end of January so I will continue on into February.

Review: Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Hello there!

I have finished my first book of 2018 and that book is Renegades by Marissa Meyer. If you do not know Meyer is the author of the New York Times bestselling series The Lunar Chronicles as well as the standalone novel Heartless. In both The Lunar Chronicles and Heartless these were retellings, Renegades is Meyer’s first book that is her own story. If you want to know more about what Renegades is about and my thoughts on it keep on reading. This review is spoiler free so proceed without worry.



In the city of Gatlot, they have superheroes named the Renegades and villains named the Anarchists.  Years before the start of this novel the Anarchists were the ones ruling the city, that is until prodigy vigilantes started fighting crime and took down the Anarchists. Now the Renegades are the ones ruling and keeping order in the city. This story follows Nova an Anarchists that is on a mission for vengeance because the Renegades let her down many years ago. When things start to look like things may be going her way she meets Adrian a Renegade boy and that is when things start to get complicated. Continue reading “Review: Renegades by Marissa Meyer”
