    How To Write an Amazing Book Review in 20 Minutes

    Welcome back to my mini-series for book bloggers or book-related bloggers!!  So you want to write a book review?  When I first started writing reviews, they were terrible. I didn’t really talk ABOUT the book and more so just talked about my feelings (which is okay, but if you want your review to be useful to shaping if someone reads a book, it isn’t the best strategy). If you want to learn how to write awesome book reviews and not start like I did, you are in the right place! Although I am definitely not an expert, I have been doing reviews for quite a while and thought I could share some…

    Aurora Rising by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff: a review

    Title: Aurora Rising Author(s): Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff Publication Date: May 7th 2019 Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy “From the internationally bestselling authors of THE ILLUMINAE FILES comes an epic new science fiction adventure.” Basically, I loved this book. Jay Kristoff always amazes me with his descriptive story telling and plots. I loved his Lif3Like novel and so I knew I needed to give this book a read! Although I loved this book, I did find it a little confusing at points. I know said I loved his descriptive way of telling the story, but I felt like this book was a little too wordy and descriptive, so much so that…

    Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin

    FINALLY A SARAH J MAAS POST after my 7 months of blog construction which has actually been total procrastination. A Court of Wings and Ruin is absolutely fantastic, it brings me to my knees with its glory. It’s just so full of magic and diversity and is everything I love in a book. (Although ACOMAF is still my love but you know) I preordered this book before it came out this year and as soon as I got it, it was finished in a matter of days, like it was insane how much I read with school and work going on (let’s just say I was pretty darn proud of…
