February went by quickly for me. I feel like I did a lot even though I fell into a deep book and blogging slump that I’m still desperately trying to escape. I haven’t published a post or read a book in almost a month 😬. Continue reading “My February 2017”
Book Traveling Thursday is weekly meme where you pick a book that fits the theme chosen by the Goodread’s group. Then, you share its different book covers from around the world according to several categories.
In light of the upcoming holiday dedicated all to ♫ looove ♫, aka Valentine’s Day
(aka Single Awareness Day), the theme for this week is a book that deals with first love. I chose the book The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne. It’s not exclusively about first love, but there is a first love aspect (Goodreads).
Title: This Savage Song
Author: Victoria Schwab
Published: July 5, 2016
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult
Goodreads Description: Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives.
This is the first book in the Monsters of Verity duology written by acclaimed author Victoria Schwab. I almost didn’t read this book because, in my experience, I found Schwab’s books to be over-hyped. However, the concept really interested me, so I decided to give the author a
second third chance. I’ll try not to spoil too much in this review because I feel like the less you know about this book, the better.

Personal posts are some of my favorite posts to read
(oh gosh, I’m sorry if that came off stalker-ish) because I get a better sense of who the blogger is and that allows me to connect more with their content. I started this blog late November of 2016 without making any introduction, and although I have an about me page, I feel like you guys can get to know me more. I’ve decided to start making monthly recaps where I highlight things I did/enjoyed/discovered and give a general life update. These posts are nice for me too since it gives me something to look back on. Continue reading “My January 2017”

Goodreads Description: Marianne Daventry will do anything to escape the boredom of Bath and the amorous attentions of an unwanted suitor. So when an invitation arrives from her twin sister, Cecily, to join her at a sprawling country estate, she jumps at the chance. Thinking she’ll be able to relax and enjoy her beloved English countryside while her sister snags the handsome heir of Edenbrooke, Marianne finds that even the best laid plans can go awry.
From a terrifying run-in with a highwayman to a seemingly harmless flirtation, Marianne finds herself embroiled in an unexpected adventure filled with enough romance and intrigue to keep her mind racing. Will Marianne be able to rein in her traitorous heart, or will a mysterious stranger sweep her off her feet? Fate had something other than a relaxing summer in mind when it sent Marianne to Edenbrooke.
I learned about Edenbrooke through one of Brookie’s posts when she mentioned how she has re-read it four times already. Being someone who rarely re-reads books, I was curious as to what she saw in it. Continue reading “Book Review: Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson”
I find it easy to get caught up in reading all the newly released or renowned books. But, a lot of times, a book’s popularity is not proportionate to how much I enjoyed it. There are a lot of lesser known/talked about books I adored, so here are five of my favorite underrated books that deserve more attention:
