Lemonade Stand Tag

Hello friends! Welcome to today’s post. As you can see by the title of this post, I’m doing the Lemonade Stand tag! The Lemonade Stand tag is a super cute tag that’s actually quite fast to do. So it’s right up my alley–I’m so excited.

The Lemonade Stand Tag was originally created by Jeimy @ A Novel Idea, though I found this tag via Lindsay @ Singer of Stories post. Check out their answers!

The Lemonade Stand Tag is part of #BESummer19, so if you’re interested in checking out the posts, I suggest you do!

Enjoy!

My Favourite Reads of 2018

FRo2018Hello friends! As the title says, today’s post is all about my Favourite Reads of 2018.

The beginning of 2018 turned out to be a great start of the year for me. I read quite a few books and they still make me feel things after the fact.

I know there are other people who like (or follow the trend) to narrow down their favourite reads to a certain number. For example, back in 2010-2015 people would have posts like “My top 10 books of 2010!” and the number would go higher every year. I’m not judging you if you did this yourself. If you did end up doing this, then kudos to you and I hope you had fun creating those posts. For me personally though, I don’t like narrowing down my favourite reads to a certain number. — I 100% prefer to just…let my favourite reads be my favourite reads without having to narrow them down.

With that been said, I’ve listed my 11 favourite reads out of the 156 novels I read last year.

Without a further ado, here are my favourite reads of 2018!

The Wild Hunt (Faerie Sworn, #1, and trilogy) by Ron C. Nieto22427190

Let me just say that I loved everything about this series. I genuinely enjoyed reading about the whirlwind that our main character, Lily, rode on. What I also liked about this series was that the male fae that accompanied Lily is…who he is. Haha, that was me avoiding any spoilers. (my review)

10 Notable Books I’ve Read in 2018 (So Far..)

Hello friends! —- Today’s post is about the 10 most notable books that I’ve read this year. As I’m writing this post, I’ve read 96 books so far this year. That’s a lot. It’s freakin’ June and this honestly proves how much of a social life that I don’t have. Which I’m 50% OK with, because that means that I get to read more books.

So here are the books that had some sort of impact on me, so far this year. In no particular order: Continue reading

Flight Season, by Marie Marquardt | {ARC} Book Review #326

A huge Thank You to St. Martin’s Press via Netgalley, for allowing me to read Flight Season in exchange for an honest review. 

Trigger Warning: Death & Grief

34964873Back when they were still strangers, TJ Carvalho witnessed the only moment in Vivi Flannigan’s life when she lost control entirely. Now, TJ can’t seem to erase that moment from his mind, no matter how hard he tries. Vivi doesn’t remember any of it, but she’s determined to leave it far behind. And she will.

But when Vivi returns home from her first year away at college, her big plans and TJ’s ambition to become a nurse land them both on the heart ward of a university hospital, facing them with a long and painful summer together – three months of glorified babysitting for Ángel, the problem patient on the hall. Sure, Ángel may be suffering from a life-threatening heart infection, but that doesn’t make him any less of a pain.

As it turns out, though, Ángel Solís has a thing or two to teach them about all those big plans, and the incredible moments when love gets in their way.

Written in alternating first person from the perspectives of all three characters, Flight Season is a story about discovering what’s really worth holding onto, learning how to let go of the rest, and that one crazy summer that changes your life forever.


Publication Date: February 20, 2018.

Flight Season is a story that has three very different points of view. You may think that they might not work together, since all three personalities are incredibly different. Yet, they all fit together like a puzzle—exceedingly well. The three characters’ points of view are from Vivi, TJ, & Ángel. Continue reading

FEBRUARY | State of the ARC | #01

State-of-the-ARC

State of the ARC meme

State of the ARC is a monthly meme at Avalinah’s Books meant to motivate you to finish up all your long overdue ARCs (Advanced or Early Reader Copies). You can track your reading progress and link up with your own post. Most commonly it comes out on the 30th of every month.


I’ve had my eye on this “State of the ARC” meme for a while now. I’ve never wanted to participate, since I myself am shamefully, incredibly behind on quite a few dozen ARC’s that I have. I cringe every time I think of them.

I found myself reading a few ARC’s I had this month, so I’m happy to say that I’m going to try and participate in these every month!

November 2017 Wrap Up & Book Haul

Hello everyone! Today’s post will be my November 2017 Wrap-Up. It’s mindblowing that it’s already December. This year has flown by so quickly!

unnamed-2

I limited myself to 3 books for my TBR in November. The books from top to bottom are: The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2) by Maggie Stiefvater (re-read); Zodiac (Zodiac, #1) by Romina Russell (re-read); and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Illustrated by Jim Kay) by JK Rowling.

I didn’t get around to reading my TBR at all last month. Which I’m very disappointed about, but I’m not going to let that bring me down. I read other books that were fairly interesting, so that in and of itself is pleasing.

Last month I read 7 books, gained 7 books. I reviewed 14 books, and posted 6 bookish-related posts. Continue reading
