I first came across Perfectly Oblivious by on a Facebook fan page for Kelly Oram. At the time I didn’t realize they were sisters, but now it makes perfect sense. Friends if you love and are obsessed with Kelly as I am (she’s about the only YA contemporary I’ll read), then you are in for a treat. Perfectly Oblivious by is a sweet story about two best friends falling in love. Told in dual POV, the reader knows all creating some dang fine irony as we read the characters’ struggles. Bianca Barnes is who I wanted to be growing up. Petite, athletic, the girl… Read more »

Our summer break is halfway over and it makes me so sad. Little man will be returning to school in 5 weeks and I’m just not ready to have a first grader 😫 He’s excited though so I’m happy about that.

Currently Reading Up Next Beating Summertime Boredom Now that we are halfway through summer, boredom is starting to set in.

Review: The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

Review: The Hundredth Queen by Emily R. King

July 10, 2017 Reviews 0

So I wasn’t overly impressed with The Hundredth Queen by like I thought I’d be. I thought I’d be fangirling over this book, writing a really enthusiastic review. But instead I feel meh about it. The Hundredth Queen had a lot of potential. It’s a high fantasy with elements of romance and rebellion. Sounds promising right? But in reality it was like all the other YA fantasy books out there where an unskilled, untrained young girl becomes the unwilling face of the rebellion…oh and she falls in love with the first boy she sees (literally!). The orphaned Kalinda was raised by a Sisterhood (similar… Read more »

Weekend Reads #93 – An ACOTAR binge and Fangirl review

Happy Saturday y’all! I don’t know about you but my days have been all messed up this week with the holiday being on a Tuesday. All morning I’ve thought it was Friday 🤦🏼‍♀️ But I digress. I’ve made no secret that this Spring was a massive reading slump for me. Towards the end of May I was getting desperate. NOTHING I read interested me and I do mean nothing. I DNFed several books though for once I do plan to go back and try them again as I don’t feel that my frame of mind gave them a good assessment. So… Read more »

The Shadow Hour by is the second book in the phenomenal urban fantasy series . I loved The Girl at Midnight! I loved the fantasy, I loved the world-building, and I loved Echo. The story is addictive and Echo is a heroine that is easy to fall in love with so I was anxious to start reading the second book. I needed to know what was going to happen to Echo, Caius and the rest of the gang. Please note that this is the second book in a series. There are minor spoilers to the previous book in this review. If you have not read… Read more »
