April,May, June Summary

Hello there!

Here is my wrap-up for the last three months. I have been grouping my Wrap-Ups and TBRs into three-month chunks this year. Well, this is going to be the last time because starting in July I will go back to posting these monthly! YAY! Now that, that is said let’s talk about books.

1. As Old as Time by Liz Braswell IMG_0891

This is the third book in the A Twisted Tale series and this focuses on Beauty and the Beast where the twist is “What if Belle’s mother cursed the Beast?”. I was so excited to read this book because BATB (1991) is my favorite movie and I was curious to see how I would like this retelling. I did enjoy myself reading myself but I did not love it as much as I thought I would. If you want to read more about my thoughts check out my review! Continue reading “April,May, June Summary”

Book Monologue #8: Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer

Hello there!

About a week ago I read Volume 1 of Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer.  I had a few feelings about the book so I thought I should make a blog post about it. This review will have spoilers on both The Lunar Chronicles and Wires and Nerve. That said if you haven’t read either come back and read this post once you do. Now on to the review!

I will start off by saying that I had so much fun being with these characters again.

Book: Shopaholic Series by Sophie Kinsella

   Reason: I just love their relationship. They have their ups and downs but they are always there for each other when it matters. Also, Luke is able to put up with Becky who is a handful because she is so ridiculous but that is why he loves her and all the readers as well. It is never boring when Becky is around. One more thing Luke is husband goals. Continue reading “My Favorite Relationships in Books”

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.
