Pre-Release Thoughts: Heartless by Marissa Meyer

fullsizerender-1

We all loved the Lunar Chronicles and now Marissa Meyer is here with a new book all its own. There are tons of Alice in Wonderland retellings in the Young Adult genre but no one is apposed to more? I personally love Marissa Meyers writing style and worlds. That mixed with one of the best classics of all time is set for greatness. I’ve met this author twice over the past year and she is just the sweetest thing ever! And I am always excited for new work by one of my favorite authors. Continue reading

Bookish Talk: Reading Slumps

Photo Aug 17, 9 23 44 PM

We have all been in a reading slump one time or another. Being me and having the attention span I have, these happen quite frequently. I went a good 6 months only reading about four books that entire time because I became so focused on other things. School especially was a horror for my reading life and probably still will be when I go back at the end of the month *cries*.
I am currently in the middle of a reading slump as we speak and sometimes you have absolutely no idea where they even come from. This is really bad since it’s day four of #ReadThemAllThon and I haven’t even gotten to page 100 of my first book. Honestly, I don’t even know what I’ve been doing all week accept laundry and watching YouTube. The worst thing is that I feel like reading is a job now and I really hate that feeling. I love reading but when you feel like you have to do it, it becomes less and less enjoyable.

Of course I wasn’t tagged to do this but how could I possibly resist?!?

This tag was created by Maureen from Maureen Keavy on YouTube and I think it is absolutely amazing and I’m so glad someone did. You can listen to Hamilton on YouTube or Spotify and I highly recommend you just buy the album because you will definitely be hooked.

The Monthly WWR Digest (July 2016)

Hello everyone and welcome to the Monthly WWR Digest! I came up with this idea after writing out an entire July Wrap Up post and realizing how boring it looked and it wasn’t very fun to write. I’m going to try doing one of these every month depending on how successfully I feel I’ve read. July was a pretty good month for me so I figured I’d start it now.

Thanks for the Trouble by Tommy Wallach – Non Spoiler Review

25532845

summary
“I’ve got some questions for you. Was this story written about me?”
I shrugged.
“Yes or no?”
I shrugged again, finally earning a little scowl, which somehow made the girl even more pretty. It brought a bloom to her pale cheeks and made sharp shelves of her cheekbones.
“It’s very rude not to answer simple questions,” she said.
I gestured for my journal, but she still wouldn’t give it to me. So I took out my pen and wrote I can’t on my palm.
Then, in tiny letters below it, I finished the thought: Now don’t you feel like a jerk?

Parker Santé hasn’t spoken a word in five years. While his classmates plan for bright futures, he skips school to hang out in hotels, killing time by watching the guests. But when he meets a silver-haired girl named Zelda Toth, a girl who claims to be quite a bit older than she looks, he’ll discover there just might be a few things left worth living for.
