2. I have this problem with stupid people. My mom says that when someone says something that is just very unintelligent sounding, that fact that I think they’re a dumbass is written all over my face. I definitely don’t have a poker face.

3. My beverages of choice are: alcoholic – whiskey, nonalcoholic – sweet tea.

4. I love to play video games. Though I haven’t played in a while…Hmmm, now I’m going to play tonight! If you’ve got an Xbox Live account – let’s be friends!

5. I live in a super small town in East Texas where everyone knows everyone. Walking through the grocery store is like a damn class reunion.

6. I am obsessed with Star Wars.

7. I’m currently binge-watching Parks and Recreation. I’m halfway through the final season and it’s been a bit of a let-down from previous seasons.

Physical Book

A Darker Shade final for Irene

A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic, #1) by V.E. Schwab

I’m gonna be honest, while I am enjoying this book, it is just not living up to all of the hype. I’m not the biggest fan of Lila. She seems like a bit of a try-hard and Schwab went overboard trying to make her into this badass independent woman. I’ve really only connected with Barron and he didn’t even last long! Is it just me? Does it get any better? Did anyone else have this problem?

NetGalley ARC Book

26489591

Nora & Kettle by Lauren Nicolle Taylor

I’ve only made it through 3 chapters of this book and I don’t really know if I like the writing style. It seems a bit disjointed and kind of bounces around. Also, the first 2 chapters were just really depressing. I have a really hard time with domestic violence because I just don’t understand how someone can hurt a child on purpose, so reading about it just doesn’t mesh well with me.

The Lie Tree by Francis Hardinge

I loved this book. It was creepy, mysterious, and was all about strong women in a time where they’re supposed to be meek and subservient. Hell yes! So glad I was able to snag it from NetGalley right before it was archived. Full review can be found HERE.

Gracie’s Song by Michelle Schlicher

This book was a really good contemporary. I don’t usually enjoy contemporaries very much, as they’re just not my type of genre. However, I really liked this one and it was so nice of Michelle to send me a copy of her novel. I definitely recommend this book to any New Adult fans out there! Full review HERE.


Reading Next…

So if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you will know all about my first experience at the public library. Some of you will be like, but why are you just now going to the public library?! Well, you used to could only get a Longview Public Library card if you paid Longview taxes and since I live in Hallsville, I couldn’t do that. I’m not sure when it changed but apparently anyone can get a card there now with a Texas driver’s license. So yesterday I made my first trip to the library and was BLOWN AWAY! Like I swear it’s the coolest place ever. I plan on spending an afternoon this weekend just going up there and reading. So anyways, you’re allowed to check out up to 15 books for 3 weeks but I decided to stick with only 6 for my first time. (I also have 42 unread books already sitting on my bookshelf at home so, yeah, there’s that reason too). These are all books that I’ve been interested in reading but just wasn’t sure if I would enjoy enough to buy them.

NetGalley ARC Books

Both of these were released this month so I probably should hurry up and get on with them, huh?


As always, please leave a link below to your own WWW Wednesday post. If not, then just let me know what you’re reading or what you think about my list!
