May Wrap Up | 2017

monthly-wrap-up-book-haul-1

How was everyone’s May? May is actually one of the busiest months for me. I mean, there’s mothers day, my brother’s wedding anniversary, my dad’s birthday, my parents wedding anniversary, and then my sisters birthday. All in that order, too.

I officially marked A Monster Calls (by Patrick Ness) as a Did Not Finish (DNF). I’ve just lost all interest in the book. Which is slightly upsetting, but I can’t help that I’ve lost interest.

unnamed-26The books I had on my TBR this month were: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver; since I really want to read the book and eventually watch the movie with my mom. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard; I really need to finish re-reading this so I can put the book out of my mind! Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann; I’ve had the book for a while, and every time I look at my shelf my eyes go to Cryer’s Cross. Evermore by Alyson Noël; I’ve been wanting to re-read Evermore for a few years now, so why not!

I’m leaving May, and entering June reading Before I Fall, as well as Evermore. Let’s see what I read this May! Continue reading

First Book Signing & Meeting Jenny Han!

unnamed-31Hello! Today I’ll be talking about my first bookish event. I don’t really do “events,” per say.. I’m more of a get-in, get what you want, buy it and leave, kind of person. However, with re-reading To All the Boys I’ve Loved, and P.S. I Still Love You, and then finally reading Always and Forever, Lara Jean, thus finishing the trilogy, I realized that the To All the Boys I’ve Loved trilogy had become one of my favourites. So when I found out that there was going to be a signing event in Vancouver, I jumped at the opportunity to go. …Then I decided to not go, because who did I know that was going? No one; and then I think it was a day later that my friend Sam invited me to go along with her.  Continue reading

Always and Forever, Lara Jean, by Jenny Han | Book Review #207

Book Review

30312860Lara Jean is having the best senior year a girl could ever hope for. She is head over heels in love with her boyfriend, Peter; her dad’s finally getting remarried to their next door neighbor, Ms. Rothschild; and Margot’s coming home for the summer just in time for the wedding.

But change is looming on the horizon. And while Lara Jean is having fun and keeping busy helping plan her father’s wedding, she can’t ignore the big life decisions she has to make. Most pressingly, where she wants to go to college and what that means for her relationship with Peter. She watched her sister Margot go through these growing pains. Now Lara Jean’s the one who’ll be graduating high school and leaving for college and leaving her family—and possibly the boy she loves—behind.

When your heart and your head are saying two different things, which one should you listen to?


Always and Forever, Lara Jean, is the third and final book in the To All the Boys I’ve Loved trilogy, by Jenny Han.  Continue reading

Books I’m Looking Forward to this May | 2017

ucbrpic

Hello folks! It’s almost May! We’re almost halfway through 2017. That is mind-boggling to me. Anyway, here is my post about all the books I’m looking forward to this upcoming May (2017)!


May 2nd

I’m super excited about Always and Forever, Lara Jean, since this book should be the last book in its trilogy — unless Han decides to move further on with the series. However, I’m looking forward to what Lara Jean’s attitude will be like, since I did not enjoy reading her bratty attitude in the first book, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

I’m a huge fan of Mass’ ACOTAR trilogy. I’m probably going to have to take transit to go and buy ACOWAR in downtown Vancouver though, like I did when I bought ACOMAF. No worries though!
