Finally a Real Russian Bloke to Obsess Over + Really Cool Space Pirates + Humor Everywhere + Spacial Slosh

“Oh hey, all your favorite characters aren’t going to be in this one, mate. We’re just going to throw them out the window and WATCH THEM FALL AND LAUGH AND TAKE PICTURES while we shove some new fellows in your way. Pretend to like them, ok?”

Mhm, yeah, that’s every bookworms’ favorite situation. AND THAT’S WHAT MY BRAIN WAS SCREAMING AT ME. SCREAMING!! LIKE THIS!! WHICH IS RUDE!! INVASIVE!! TERRIFYING!! Thank the books above that everything my brain tells me is a lie. Yes, that’s it. I’ve disintegrated into a puddle of shame. RIP ME.

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Review

It’s been a few days now since I finished Illuminae. Maybe a week. I’ve been trying to write a review ever since I flipped the last page, and the words just don’t come. I NEED SOME TIME, Y’ALL. Illuminae blew me away. It’s one of those books that leaves you slightly breathless, and well, speechless too. I’m…

Heartless Really Was Heartless…To Every Reader Ever

What even did Marissa Meyer do to me this time???

I want to reread Heartless, but I also know better than that. Villain origin stories are sad enough already…I don’t need to read one twice knowing FULL WELL what cruelty is coming my way. ASDFJKLASJK HELP ME.

A Gentleman in Moscow, Where Everything is Beautiful + You Cry Because of It

OH MY. I savored every minute I spent reading A Gentleman in Moscow. Frankly, I’d rather reread it than write a review. It wasn’t anything like the book I was expecting. It was sweeter, softer, wittier, and way, way classier.

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry – Review

Wow. Wow. This is by far one of the best children’s books I’ve ever read. Ever. I hope you’re into kid-lit, because well. This is pretty much a masterpiece of children’s fiction. Why? Let me explain. *muhahahaha* ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Children’s + Middle Grade / Genre: Historical Fiction / Content: 10+ / Recommended Ten-year-old Annemarie Johansen and her…

The Night Circus Just Ruined Any Chance I Ever Had of Enjoying Another Circus Book

Because nothing can ever live up to this, THAT’S WHY. I did probably the absolute worst thing I could ever do besides smash an antique vase (or stab someone COUGH the butler did it COUGH) and decided to read Caraval right after I finished The Night Circus. #REGRET. It’s cruel on Caraval and it’s cruel on me.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo – Review

So if y’all don’t know, I’m pretty obsessed with Leigh Bardugo, but I had never stepped foot in her Grisha Trilogy until now. I honestly thought that after Six of Crows nothing could compare (and let’s be honest, nothing will) and I had seen so many negative reviews about it on Goodreads that it kind…

Cinder by Marissa Meyer – Review

Oh. Just another Cinderella retelling. “Just another Cinderella retelling.” “JUST another Cinderella retelling.” I don’t know about you, but that’s what I thought when I first came across this book. Slipper on the cover? The word “cinder” in the title? No thanks. I’m good. I know what that’s going to be about. Right? Nope. This…
