I’m going to preface this with: This has been my favorite “meaningful” read this year.  I adore this book. I checked it out from the library, but at some point I would love to own my own copy…It’s that awesome. Sue Monk Kidd wrote The Secret Life of Bees which  [ Read More ]

Maze Runner…Questions and More Questions

Posted by Steph on May - 18 - 2014

  I’ve been reading the Maze Runner series by James Dashner lately. I saw a preview for the movie when I went to Divergent (which was A-Mazing!) and knew I had to read the series before I’d allow myself to even think about going to the theatre. (The kid from  [ Read More ]

Book Review: Unhinged by A.G. Howard

Posted by Steph on April - 9 - 2014

Unhinged…was pretty great. There were so many emotions for me during this one, I felt like I was on a rollercoaster though, however, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride! Howard has some awesome twists and turns I’m never able to see coming. Having to put this book down to do homework  [ Read More ]

Cress Success!

Posted by Steph on April - 7 - 2014

Cress. I loved it. So full of action and wonderful people (umm…characters…) that I cannot get enough of the Lunar chronicles series. I totally wish I was on board that epic, dangerous mission to overthrow Queen Levana with them just so I could hang out and chat with Wolf, Cinder,  [ Read More ]

Swept Away by Splintered

Posted by Steph on March - 16 - 2014

Splintered was incredibly unique, a bit bizarre, but overall the result was amazing. I’m in love with re-tellings of fairy tales right now and this story took Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and gave it a completely new twist in the modern day.  Wonderland is darker and more twisted with the  [ Read More ]

Back for a Book Blitz!

Posted by Steph on December - 19 - 2013

Finally done with my first semester of library school and while it was super interesting it was also super time consuming. However, I did manage to read a couple books…in three months! It was quite a change from my typical two books a week consumption. However, The House of Hades  [ Read More ]

Epic Addition: The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

Posted by Steph on November - 11 - 2013

Yes, I am alive and no, I am not abandoning the blogosphere…I’ve just been a bit (ok, extremely) busy with school.  Gross, right? Well I have read some amazing books lately though to keep myself sane including; Wonder by R.J. Palacio, House of Hades by Rick Riordan, and Bone Season  [ Read More ]

Wow, school is a bit overwhelming along with working and getting sick…however, I did manage to sneak in Requiem, the last book in the Delirium trilogy recently and…I LOVED it! I was a bit scared because of all the mixed reviews I’d seen. Requiem was fast paced and well written  [ Read More ]

And the Awesomeness Continues: Pandemonium #2 by Lauren Oliver

Posted by Steph on September - 18 - 2013

There was a reason for putting this book off so long…Oliver’s writing sucks you in and doesn’t let you go.  I lost my whole weekend (time I had planned on doing homework and cleaning) to finishing this book and starting the last book in this amazing trilogy.  Not that I’m  [ Read More ]

5/5! Shadow and Bone & Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Posted by Steph on September - 6 - 2013

Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm, you were amazing, you made me lose sleep, and cry, and make noises while I read so that people looked at me funny. I love you.  Thank you to everyone who has ever suggested I read these books! I feel ashamed it took  [ Read More ]
