The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab

  I’m not sure what I can say about The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue that hasn’t already been said by so many other people. Addie is a quiet book, playing on old themes we’ve seen before but pouring much love and emotion into them that it tugs at all your heartstrings and makes you fall in love with Addie and Henry that much more.  Schwab takes us through scenes from rural France in the early 17th century to 2014, and each snapshot is immersive and beautiful.  Addie is an easy book to get lost in because even though the chapters are […]

Skyhunter by Marie Lu

  Skyhunter was everything I wanted and more. There was something about the cover art for Skyhunter that caught my eye last summer – something about the neon, science fiction feel of it that drew me to the book.  Despite being authored by Marie Lu, who is fairly popular within the community, I haven’t heard any buzz about Skyhunter.  I stumbled it by chance, and to this day, I still haven’t seen a single review.  I’m ready to holler about this book, because I really liked it. First, Talin is mute.  I have never read a book with a main character who is unable to […]

2020 in Review: Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles

2020 in Review: Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles

Posted January 8, 2021 in Blogging, Bookish Things, Checking In // 0 Comments

It’s that annual wrap up time of year again! When I set up the placeholder for this post a year ago and called it “Reading Challenges and Blogging Hurdles” I had no idea how true that would ring.  I know I was thinking about following through on my personal reading challenge as well as Start On Your Shelfathon… but y’all?  2020 has been rife with reading challenges.  And blogging hurdles.  I am plum worn out. Usually, I use this post to share Goodread’s “My Year In Books”.  This year, I’m going to pull a little data from that page, but they’ve stripped […]

Miss Meteor by Tehlor Kay Mejia & Anna-Marie McLemore

Miss Meteor by Tehlor Kay Mejia & Anna-Marie McLemore

  I am so glad Miss Meteor was my first full read of 2021 because I can’t think of a better type of book to start off my year.  Chicky and Lita were amazing characters – held back by secrets that are eating them up, bu each at their core kind and sweet.  I also loved Cole and Junior, and all of Chicky’s sisters.  I have nothing to criticize about this book. Absolutely nothing. We start with a pair of estranged friends – Estrellita and Chiquita – who miss one another dreadfully, but their secrets have pulled them apart.  Both have […]

Good Riddance, 2020! My December Wrap Up.

Hello everyone!  Good morning and HAPPY JANUARY 4TH 2021.  I know that 2021 isn’t going to solve all our problems.  Or any of it, actually, but the illusion of hope and change and new beginnings are always nice tings to hold on to – it gives us a little bit o strength to pick ourselves up and persevere. *deep breath* 2021 y’all. But not without one last wrap up, and then we can say adieu, right?  So lets do this. All the things I’ve been reading I allowed myself to have a fairly light reading month in December.  I read some […]
