    Something no one tells you about growing up is learning the art of letting go.  I have a tendency of being a dragon. I cannot fly, nor breath fire, nor cast fear those around me. I can, however, hoard. All my possessions are a form of treasure. Each with a little story of how it […]

  • Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer | Book Review

      I have given this book for free for an honest review.   A kingdom burns. A princess sleeps. This is no fairy tale. It all started with the burning of the spindles. No. It all started with a curse… Half sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, […]

  • Princesses, Turtles and Birds | Watcha Reading Wednesday

    Spindle Fire by Lexa Hillyer I have given this book for free for a honest review. I am currently making my way through the novel, but even though it is marketed as a YA it feels a lot as a Middle Grade. I don’t love but I don’t hate it so far. Stay tune for […]

  • Why I Read Books

     Sometimes I get praises or questionable looks about why I read so much. Sometimes I am too scared to say that it is an escape from reality. Nothing against non-frequent readers, but reading helps the mind and you become a better person. I did not officially become an avid reader until I was in middle […]

  • Dear November: A Letter to Myself

    It is half way through November, meaning the year is nearly over! (OMG). How fast does time go by? Hella Anyways. I wanted to talk about life, and by life I mean books. (Which is life…along with food) No, seriously. Recently, Facebook threw in my face a really old picture of me due to the […]

  • Fairytales Retold | Book Talk

      In the YA world, it is currently very popular to re-tell a classic story. Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, you name it. They grab the basic premise of these classic tales and turn them upside down. Maybe Cinderella is a cyborg? Snow White is actually a warrior. The Beast is […]

  • I’m always S*** for Riordan Mythology | Book Talk

    I was in ninth grade and Borders was still a semi-stable bookstore company. I do not remember what led me to ask my mom to buy me a complete set of books…but I did. I think we were looking for a book I needed for my English class or something, but on that day I […]
