The Characters Who Made “Meh” Books Tolerable

The Characters Who Made “Meh” Books Tolerable

Over the last two years, I’ve read a lot of books, but not all of them have been gold medal winners.  Some have been *so* frustrating, and others the worst kind of predictable.  Love triangles, overflowing with cheese… I could go on. I do acknowledge, though, not all books are purely unenjoyable.  Sometimes, there will be characters that stand out even if I don’t like the story.  Here are some characters of note.      Sydney Sage Bloodlines by Richelle Mead Tess Legend by Marie Lu The Faeries So Silver Bright by Lisa Mantchev Indie Crossed by Ally Condie Letty Hempstock […]

August Wrap Up! // Featuring: Lakes, Cakes, AND DOC BROWN!

The Monstrous, Half-Blood, Ruby Princess – #IMWAYR

The Monstrous, Half-Blood, Ruby Princess – #IMWAYR

So I’ve been reading a lot more books than I usually do, and I’m quite proud of myself. I think it’s because I have stumbled into the section of my TBR with a bunch of MG, short, and light and fluffy novels.  But that’s cool – I’m really enjoying them.  Percy Jackson was WONDERFUL and I’m nearly done with Ruby Red right now, and YUM.  How have I not gotten to these before? #shame I’m going to start with the older books first, then move on to the newer ones, yes?  Yes. So REJECTED PRINCESSES. This is the book that […]
