February 27, 2019: ‘Six of Crows’ Reading Blog #1

I’m finally tackling ‘Six of Crows’! I wanted to wrap up my February reads with this story, but I’m only a quarter of the way through with it. So far, I feel a bit conflicted over what I’m reading thus far. Perhaps it’s because that the plot centers around completing a risky heist, and IContinue reading “February 27, 2019: ‘Six of Crows’ Reading Blog #1”

February 26, 2019: Some March Book Releases

February 24, 2019: Reading to Escape

I’ve been very happy with my reading goals thus far. I know we’re only a couple months into 2019, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that I’ve done a considerable amount of reading. At this time last year, I don’t think I picked up a book to read for enjoyment. Aside from searchingContinue reading “February 24, 2019: Reading to Escape”

February 23, 2019: A Blade So Black by L.L. McKinney/A Review

I felt so enthralled by ‘A Blade So Black’. This is a modern retelling of ‘Alice in Wonderland’, set in Atlanta, Georgia. Alice is a young, African-American woman, balancing the stress of high school and an over-protective mother while fighting the Nightmares plaguing the magical world of Wonderland. In this version of the Lewis CarollContinue reading “February 23, 2019: A Blade So Black by L.L. McKinney/A Review”

February 16, 2019: ‘Ruin and Rising’ by Leigh Bardugo/A Review

I heard so many mixed reviews about ‘Ruin and Rising’. I went into this book bracing myself, since I wasn’t sure whether I would be pleasantly surprised or throw the book down in disgust after sticking with it for this long. It turns out that I feel…well, pleasantly surprised! ‘Ruin and Rising’ by Leigh BardugoContinue reading “February 16, 2019: ‘Ruin and Rising’ by Leigh Bardugo/A Review”

February 13, 2019: The Book Addiction Tag

I came across this book tag through Harper Grae’s page. What is the longest amount of time you can go without picking up a book? A few hours…but only because I’m busy working. How many books do you carry on your person (or Kindle) at one time? Usually just one. I always have some typeContinue reading “February 13, 2019: The Book Addiction Tag”

I picked up three books over the weekend; Two from the library, and one Barnes and Noble purchase. I enjoy picking up selections from my local library, and I try to frequent it every chance I get.

**I received an eARC of ‘Ever Alice’ from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.** ‘Ever Alice’ is a retelling of ‘Alice of Wonderland’. It takes place a few years after the classic story, and it finds Alice in a mental asylum.
