First Impressions of Books That I Got Wrong

Let's be honest - we all prejudge books before we ever read them. Whether we are judging them based on their covers (don't lie, we know you do it...), the hype surrounding them, the author's previous work, etc., we are constantly forming opinions as soon as we learn about a book. But hey, we're all [...]

June Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

June Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

I had a decent reading month in June, but nothing amazing. Things have been really busy and stressful at work, which has affected my reading some. I catch myself coming home and just watching tv to relax more than I have in years. I'd like to thank Hulu and Netflix for taking over my life [...]

May Wrap-Up: Reviews, Reading Challenges, etc.

So I didn't get through as many books in May as I was originally planning on. I blame some of that on going to New York for BookCon the last 5 days of the month. TOTALLY worth it though! I had so much fun at BookCon and really enjoyed chatting with other book lovers, especially [...]

Book Review: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)

Book Review: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)

After reading Cinder, I just couldn't wait to jump back into that world and so I immediately picked up Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2). I don't know how Marissa Meyer does it, but her books always have me hooked from the very first chapter. Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar [...]
