Finally! After months and months of waiting, I was able to read the second book in the Ruined series Avenged! I’ll let you guys know from now that the second book did not disappoint, this was a great continuation. First things first if you have not read either books stop right there and check out my spoiler-free review of Ruined. This review will have some spoilers of Ruined since this is a sequel. Now let’s get into the actual review!
Guys! I absolutely loved this second book, Avenged. I thought it was a great continuation and I loved seeing all the characters development. In Ruined Emelina’s main goal is to save her sister Olivia from the Lera kingdom who kidnapped her. By the end of book one Em accomplishes her goal and saves her sister. Em’s plan had worked exactly how she planned it, except for one thing. Em never planned on developing feelings for the Lera Prince, Casimir. Continue reading “Review: Avenged by Amy Tintera”
One week later and I am finally posting the second part to my BookCon post. This will be all about day two let’s just get into it.
After the first day, Carleny and I realized that if we wanted to get the One Dark Throne Arc we had to get to the Javits Center earlier than we did on day one. So we agreed to meet up on Sunday at 7 am. This meant that we had to wake up at 5 am and leave by 6 am. Carleny had to leave her house around 5:45 am because she lives feather from Manhattan than I do. Early that morning I get a text from Carleny that says “I’m up, don’t make me call you!” and I responded with “I’m up!”. After such a long day on Saturday and then having to be up at 5 Am we were not in the most chipper mood to be up that early. I was on the train by a little after 6 am and I was shocked at a number of people on the train that early on a Sunday ha ha. I met up with Carleny and we were on the line at about 7:05 Am. Since we got to the Javits Center earlier on Sunday we had to line up outside since the queue hall didn’t open until 8 Am. Continue reading “BookCon Day 2: Experience and Haul”
I can not believe that April has ended and we are already in May! This year is going by so fast. Sadly, I did not read much in April and I am planning on having a small TBR for May. Let’s just get into my April Wrap-up, hope you enjoy.
Guys, I finally did it! I have started to read the Harry Potter Series for the first time. It was a long time coming and I am so glad I finally decided to pick this up. In April I read the first book in the series Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. I enjoyed the book so much I am starting to understand why this series is so beloved by the book community. To be honest I was a little afraid that I wasn’t going to like it because I attempted to read the first book when I was in the 6th grade back in 2001 and I didn’t finish it. It just hit me that I first tried to read Harry Potter four years after it’s released and this year will mark the 20th anniversary of its release. I can not believe it took me so long. But in my defense, I wasn’t much of a reader when I was a kid. Continue reading “April Summary and Coming Up in May”
On this post, I will be going into detail on my thoughts of King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard. This review will have spoilers so if you are looking for a spoiler-free review you can check mine out! (KC Review Spoiler Free). Now let’s get into this review.
Okay, let me start off by saying that I enjoyed the pacing for most of the book. Since Mare was taken by Maven as a prisoner I thought that her escape/ rescue was going to happen too quick. I thought that it might have been a chapter or two of Mare being held prisoner by Maven but it actually took a good portion of the book. Which I felt made it feel more realistic, also it took several tries for Mare to get away. I feel that sometimes in books or movies the rescue or escape happens the first try. So I really liked that, that wasn’t rushed. Continue reading “Book Monologue 6 : King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard”
This post is going to be all about what I read in March and what I plan on reading in April. Sadly I did not read much in March so because of that my April TBR is going to be on the small side just so I don’t feel overwhelmed and feel like I need to rush to finish all the books before the month is up. Okay, let’s just get into the books.

Last week on February 7th, 2017 my most anticipated 2017 book was released! Let’s back it up a little to 2015. My favorite author Sophie Kinsella published two books in 2015 so I knew that in 2016 she would not release a new book. That said I have been waiting for this new book for over a year so I was so excited when I finally got my hands on a copy of My Not So Perfect Life. By the way, if you want to see what happened when I went on a book hunt to get this book check out my video Book Hunt Adventure! Now let’s get into this review because I have a lot of feels!

First off, I know this review is super late. This should have been posted the end of January but stuff happened and today is the day that I was finally able to get this up. Today’s post is on my thoughts on Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. Let me start off by saying that I was really excited to read this book and I had been wanting to read this for a year or two. I am so glad that I was finally able to give Cruel Beauty a read.
Cruel Beauty is a Beauty and the Beast retelling, that is the main reason I wanted to read this book. Nyx our main character has been betrothed to the evil ruler of her kingdom since birth. This is all due to the fact that her father struck a deal with the Gentle Lord. The price of that deal was one of his daughters. This story is about Nyx and what happens when she comes face to face with the husband she is supposed to kill. Continue reading “Review: Cruel Beauty by: Rosamund Hodge”
As part of my countdown to Beauty and the Beast movie, I am going to discuss the words I learned from the 1991 movie Beauty and the Beast. What I mean by this is English words that as a child I most diffidently did not know what they meant. Now on to the words! ( After adding all the pictures in I realized that a lot of the words revolve around Gaston. Interesting.)
1) Primeval: adj: of or relating to the first age or ages, especially of the world.
Line: Belle: Gaston you are positively primeval.
Gaston: Why thank you, Belle.
-Um Gaston that is not a compliment lol Continue reading “Words I Learned from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast”
