My Thoughts on A Light in the Flame (Flesh and Fire, Book 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

My Thoughts on A Light in the Flame (Flesh and Fire, Book 2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Jennifer L. Armentrout's second book in the prequel series to Blood and Ash (Flesh and Fire) was finally released. I was curious about what would happen in A Light in the Flame because the last time we left off, Sera was about to die unless she was Ascended by Nyktos through love. Something we quickly learn he is not capable of because he had that part of his soul removed years ago. Furthermore, the two are still figuring out how to deal with each other after the truth about Sera's upbringing was revealed in A Shadow in the Ember.…

My Thoughts on Legendary (Caraval, Book 2) by Stephanie Garber

My Thoughts on Legendary (Caraval, Book 2) by Stephanie Garber

This book took me a hot moment to read. Not for a lack of interest but because of a book slump. Or what felt like one. I think I've just read so many books on Kindle that reading a physical book feels off at the moment. So, I ended up getting the book on Kindle and finished it within a few days of doing so. Unlike the previous book review I did for Caraval, I'm just sharing my thoughts after reading Legendary by Stephanie Garber. There are some spoilers, but only things that happened or were revealed by the halfway point in the book. Everything after that I'm not going to reveal, so if you wanted to avoid what happens from that point on (plot twists, etc.) it's not ruined for you.…

Looking Back at October 2022

Looking Back at October 2022

This last month has been a rollercoaster. It started off with me not being in the mood to read anything new, and that kind of continued all month. Don't get me wrong, I did read some things as you'll see but mostly I just read segments of previously read books. And I didn't play any video games as I focused the month on Twitch with body painting. Well, I did play Dreamlight Valley but it was still less gaming than I normally do overall.…

My Thoughts on The Bonds that Tie Series by J Bree

My Thoughts on The Bonds that Tie Series by J Bree

While I could post a review about every book in The Bonds that Tie series by J Bree, I didn't want to put them down or pause reading to do so. I enjoyed the series that much (spoiler alert). So, I'm just going to combine them all together as I have done with other series that captivated my attention to this extent. I originally discovered this series through TikTok, but only ever heard that they were fantastic without any real details around the plot which I appreciate so I could go into the series without there being spoilers. I love discussing the details of a book as much as the next person especially when it's a good book, but I don't like knowing those details until I've gotten a chance to experience it for myself. Case and point Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard, I still haven't finished that series due to the fact I know everything that's going to happen and it makes me not want to pick up the next book. So, with that being said, I'm not going to be going into heavy details about the books, so there will be no spoilers here while I share my thoughts on this series. …

Books That at One Point Got Me into Reading

Books That at One Point Got Me into Reading

You would probably never guess based on how much I read today, but I grew up hating books. My parents struggled to get me to read anything. At one point they had to bribe me to read 100 books. They made a whole chart, and the majority of those were extremely short books meant to read your child to sleep. And I struggled with those. Any words that weren't simple, I didn't recognize, or couldn't pronounce/spell. So, I wanted nothing to do with reading. It wasn't until the seventh or eighth grade that I finally got into reading anything that wasn't assigned to me by school. And throughout the years there were lulls when I stopped reading for various reasons. So, I thought it would be fun to go through those books. …

New Books in My Collection That I Need to Read

New Books in My Collection That I Need to Read

It's been a while since I did a book haul. While I had added books to my collection, I've been mindful of making sure I've read those new books. However, there are quite a few from previous hauls that I still need to get to, which I'm kind of waiting for the mood to hit. I sometimes love and hate being a mood reader. I might think a book will be good and purchase it, but unless that mood hits it ends up sitting on my shelf. But we're not talking about those books. Today, I'm sharing my most recent haul as I ended up getting quite a few (probably was in a semi-hypomanic state at the time but we're not talking about that).…

My Thoughts on The Broken Kingdom Series by LJ Andrews

My Thoughts on The Broken Kingdom Series by LJ Andrews

I love a good retelling or adaptation of classic folklore. This series by LJ Andrews is going to be broken into four parts. The first is Beauty and the Beast (books 1-3), and the second is Cinderella (books 4-6). The other two have yet to come, but by the end, all four tales will collide together for a grand finale. While the series are separate, they occur in the same world and are interconnected. So, you can read the Cinderella books first, but it is recommended to read them in the order they were published. The whole series is part Viking, part folklore, with Fae and magic.…

Taylor Swift Midnights Book Tag

Taylor Swift Midnights Book Tag

It's been a hot minute since I did a book tag, and considering Taylor Swift just released a new album called Midnights, I knew several people were probably going to end up making book tags related to it. I really like this one from Star Is All Booked Up, so check out their blog to see the original. But these are the ones I came up with for each of the prompts based on the song titles.…
