Mid-Year Reading Wrap Up (2022)

Mid-Year Reading Wrap Up (2022)

The year is officially halfway over, so I thought it was time to look back at all the books I've read so far since the start of 2022. Several of these books I read multiple times during the course of the year, so the actual number of books is higher if you take that into consideration, but I didn't count how many times I re-read books, and some of them I only re-read certain sections, like returning to the romance only portion of some books and skipping the plot. It depends on the book and what I was in the mood for at the time. I also did not include any books that I read in previous years in this list, only the new ones.…

Looking Back on February 2022

Looking Back on February 2022

I'm really sick of major life events. I swear something major has happened every month for the last year if not more. This month started with losing my job. The first job I've ever been fired from and I can't believe the explanation I was given. I have my own conspiracy on what happened, but ultimately it doesn't matter. I don't have a job anymore. I gave them almost a decade of my life, and now that chapter is over. I'm trying to look on the bright side, which is really hard because I'm not an optimist. …

My Thoughts on House of Sky and Breath (Crescent City, Book 2) by Sarah J. Maas

My Thoughts on House of Sky and Breath (Crescent City, Book 2) by Sarah J. Maas

It's been two years since the previous Crescent City book was released by Sarah J. Maas. I will be avoiding sharing spoilers for the most part while discussing this book as there are mystery-solving elements to this book. Though unlike the first book in the series, the mystery was not the main focus. This one is more focused on the power-dynamic within Crescent City and going against the Asteri. Still, I'll be avoiding them for the most part in this review.…

Looking Back at What I Read in 2020

Looking Back at What I Read in 2020

2020 was a tough year for a lot of us. I know I already talked a bit about this in my Happy New Year and Goals for January 2021 posts, but I thought I would make a dedicated post for going over the books that I read last year and if any of my thoughts have changed in regards to them. Since this last year really got me back into reading, as before other than Shadowhunters Chronicles which was the majority of my reading in 2019 I pretty much never read. But in 2020, I read at least six to eight books a month. If not, more as I often end up reading several books multiple times or re-reading various chapters repeatedly.…

12 Days of Christmas Book Tag

I wasn't tagged to do the 12 Days of Christmas Book Tag, but I really liked the concept after seeing it on Ellie's blog (Read to Ramble). So, I'm going to do it as well. This tag was originally created by Lizzie Loves Books.…

My Thoughts on House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, Book 1) by Sarah J. Maas

My Thoughts on House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, Book 1) by Sarah J. Maas

I was going to do another 'My Thoughts While Reading' Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas which is her newest book (released in March 2020), but I couldn't set the book down so instead I'm just going to do old-fashion review... which I never do on books. But I'm going to avoid spoilers for once, as I definitely think this is a story where the twists are best left a mystery.…
