Ronit & Jamil by Pamela L. Laskin

Ronit & Jamil by Pamela L. Laskin

I will be the first to admit that poetry and I are not necessarily friends. I have never really read a book that is entirely in verse (except for like the Odyssey and a couple others for school). It’s something that I’ve been curious to try and something that always intrigued me. That said, I’m not sure this was the right book to start with. There were some really good moments. There were a few passages that I really enjoyed…

priority 10(ish) for 2017

priority 10(ish) for 2017

I have been in a bit of a blogging slump. I’ve been reading the same couple of books for a bit now so I haven’t been able to really read any review books. I want to continue to push myself with writing and posting at least once a week so I’ve had to get pretty random. My last post was about starting a bullet journal and that inspired me to share the top 10(ish) books I want to read in…

bullet journaling

bullet journaling

I feel pretty bad that I haven’t really reviewed any books here for a couple weeks. I haven’t really read any review books recently and the books I HAVE read aren’t really any that I have thoughts to share. So I decided to talk about something pretty random – bullet journaling! (if you couldn’t tell by the title… lol) I dabbled a bit last year with a bullet journal and used a grid composition notebook. I wasn’t really fancy with…

challenge check in

So… I have a challenge problem. At the start of this year, I said that I was going to cut down on my challenges and goals and what not so as not to overwhelm myself. That didn’t really happen! Like at all… lol. I’m here to kind of check in and see where I’m at on my goals and kind of reevaluate where I stand and what not. Blogging Goals My first goal for 2017 was to post at least…

all the buddy reads

Buddy reading books is one of the things that interested me about the blogosphere and Goodreads. Where I live, there aren’t really any book clubs that I’ve been able to participate in or anything. There are some of course at the libraries, but they tend to be geared towards an older crowd and on days that I’m not available. I’ve always wanted to discuss books with other people and just never really have had the chance. Even on Goodreads, the…

By Your Side by Kasie West

By Your Side by Kasie West

I have always seen so many amazing things about Kasie West books, but haven’t read one yet. Well, that finally changed! By Your Side is about this girl, Autumn, and how she gets locked into the library with Dax, the bad boy no one knows much about. Let me start with the obvious. This book is not a serious book. It is a fluffy, feel good book that does touch on certain topics, but it does not go deep. It…

the YouTube black hole

the YouTube black hole

So this isn’t quite book related, but it’s something I want to talk about so here I am! I used to always hear about people who would watch all the YouTube and I never really understood it. How can someone waste so much time watching silly videos online?! Well, I get it guys. There is so much content on that site that it is so easy to just fall into the black hole that is YouTube. I am now OBSESSED….

The Green Glass Sea by Ellen Klages

The Green Glass Sea by Ellen Klages

This is one of those books that I purely picked up because of where it takes place. I am born and raised in New Mexico and anytime I come across a book that features New Mexico, I of course have to pick it up. I’m actually really glad that I did with this one! This book takes place in Los Alamos at the time of them building the atomic bombs. While that is the setting and the time frame, the…

Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang

Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang

I had seen this pop up on numerous lists of really good books to read, especially in regards to its subject matter (suicide). For some reason, I just never picked it up to read! I’m glad I finally decided to do so! I liked this book and it was definitely a unique read. It’s format was different than anything I’ve read and the story line was definitely nonlinear. Liz is hard person to like when we first meet her. Throughout…

The Prey by Tom Isbell

The Prey by Tom Isbell

I’m honestly not sure what it was about this book that made me want to read it. Something must have grabbed my attention since I requested it for review! Well, it is now over a year later and I finally read it! I enjoyed this book, but I wouldn’t say that I loved it. I also don’t think I’ll read the rest of the series. That said, I can see this appealing to a lot of people so definitely give…
