Taylor Swift Lover Book Tag

Morning, everyone!

I am so excited for the weekend. My friends and I went to an early viewing of IT: Chapter 2. I jumped, I laughed, and I enjoyed it, even if I wanted nothing more than to burn the clown.

Nish and Ngoc from Nish and Ngoc’s Book Nook created this tag, and I thought I’d give it try! I want to thank these two for tagging me!

I hope you like the post. Have a great weekend, readers!

Summer Bucket List Book Tag

Morning, sweets!

Has anyone had a “blah” day? I feel it right now. And even though yesterday was my day off, I wasn’t feeling it. So a tag is here to save me.

I found this delectable tag on Kalina Reads. Kalina is adorable, and you all need to see what she creates on her blog! Summer is almost, almost over, but I knew I could slide in one more summer tag. So let’s get to it!

Top Ten Tuesday | Book Characters I’d Love to Be Besties With

Happy Tuesday!

I’ve been so exhausted lately. Who else feels the same way? I think I’m in need of a desperate need of a vacation. But I’m excited about this post. I knew I could put twenty or more character on my list. But I want to talk about my most recent favourites. Who’s ready?

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The second prompt is book characters you’d want to be besties with. Okay, I’ll just say that I’d want to be besties with most of the characters I read about.

Enjoy the read!

In the wake of a climactic battle in the ruined city of Babel, two former best friends suddenly find themselves on opposite sides of the same quest. Eve is torn between the memories of the girl she was, and the synthetic she’s discovered herself to be. Together with her lifelike “siblings,” Eve sets out to find the real Ana Monrova, whose DNA is the key to building an army of lifelikes.

Meanwhile, Eve’s best friend, Lemon, is coming to terms with a power that she has long denied—and that others want to harness as a weapon. When she meets a strange boy named Grimm, he offers to lead her out of the horror-ridden landscape and to an enclave of other abnorms like herself. There, Lemon quickly finds a sense of belonging—and perhaps even love—among the other genetic deviates.

But all is not what it seems, and with enemies and friends, heroes and villains wearing interchangeable faces, Lemon, too, will join the race to locate Ana Monrova before her former best friend can get to her.


“Sometimes you don’t know you’ve crossed the line till you’re on the other side.”

Droogs, I don’t know if I can handle another one of Kristoff’s cliffhangers. I don’t. But this soul-destroying creator probably enjoys our torture, so I’m not counting on it. But damn you, Kristoff. Damn you.

Paradise Lost meets post-apocalyptic X-Men with a heavy dose of Mad Max, DEV1AT3 will utterly destroy your expectations. If you believed the ending of LIKEL1K3 was rough, then buckle in. Kristoff is will hit you with enough g-force you’ll come out breathless. It took me more than a month to come to terms with that ending. And I’m still not okay. I don’t understand how Kristoff conceives a mashup of storylines that somehow entwine together. Without a doubt, DEV1AT3 is one of the top favourite reads of 2019.

Monthly Wrap-Up: July 2019

Let me say that I’ve seen the love in the book community. And I cannot be more prouder than I am of it and my dear friends (you know who you are). When I’ve been struggling with my Mom’s diagnosis, I had all the support I could ever wish for. And since Mom is done with her chemo (yesss!!!), I want to thank you all. I love you.

As some of you may have seen, I haven’t had much time with my blog. On numerous weeks, I have lacked any thrill in writing anything or was too tired. But I am slowly getting back into my routine, so please be a bit more patient with me, okay?

While July was a rollercoaster for me, I wanted to share some of the highlights of the month:

Top Ten Tuesday | My Morally Gray Squad

Morning, everyone!

When I first started this post, I needed time to figure out what I wanted out of it. Freebies are always hard for me, somehow. They either excel beautifully or bomb. I hope for the former.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The new prompt is a character freebie. I had several ideas, but the morally gray squad stuck with me.

Hope you all enjoy!

Monthly Wrap-Up: June 2019

Where has the time gone? The months are flying by too fast, I feel. Even though my long weekend plans shriveled up, I knew I wanted to set aside some free time for my posts and my books.

I’m excited and proud to say that Mom has just two more rounds of chemo left! She started back in March, and we never thought we’d reach this far. She’s gone through so much. Even though our lives are still hell, I cannot be prouder of what she’s done.

So let’s start off a new month with a wrap-up post! Have fun.

Top Ten Tuesday | Books on My Summer 2019 TBR

Happy Tuesday, dearies!

Too many recently released and upcoming titles are seducing me. This list is not helping right now! I shouldn’t complain though. I knew this topic was coming up. But I want to take some chances with my reading picks though.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. This week’s prompt is books on our summer 2019 TBR. I think I’ll just keep my list to six titles, or you may be here all day. 😂

I hope you love my choices and find new reads! Enjoy.
