Woot, woot! We are starting fall! I am so pumped for the weather to cool down a bit and all the fun fall festivities to begin! To go along with my fall excitement, here are the books I hope to read this season!

1) Cinder by Marissa Meyer I am currently reading this one and almost halfway through, so I am planning to finish this one      soon! Goodreads Link
2) Everything All At Once by Katrina Leno I received this book in my August Uppercase subscription box, and I am super excited to get into it! If you're interested, here is a link to the Uppercase Box website! Goodreads Link
3) Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab I loved This Savage Song, so I am so pumped to get into the sequel! I thought this story would be awesome to read in October because it's such a dark world with monsters everywhere! Goodreads Link
4) The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins I have been meaning to get to this book for so long, and I have decided that this fall is going to be the time. Fall is the perfect time t…

Summer Wrap Up!

Image
Hello everyone! I can't believe summer is already over, and we are headed into fall! It feels like just yesterday it was May and I had just finished my freshman year, but here I am sitting in my dorm room almost finished with my first month of sophomore year! Today I'm snuggling up in bed because classes have been cancelled because of the storms coming off of Hurricane Irma, and I thought it would be a great time to catch up on a couple blog posts that I've been meaning to get up!

This summer I had a bit of a slow start to my reading, but I ended up reading a total of 10 books from June through August! I am really happy with this. I'll list the books down below as well as my rating and some brief thoughts on each! Go get your own snuggly blanket and enjoy!




This book was crazy. I just don't understand how one person can come up with such an in depth world and a plot line that keeps you on the edge of your seat! Cassandra Clare is just a magical being, that is what I…

The Rosie Project Review

Image
Author: Graeme Simsion

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Pages: 297

Rating: ★★★★







Synopsis: The Rosie Project follows Don Tillman, a middle-aged, socially awkward, brilliant college genetics professor on a quest to see if he can find true love. We follow the story through his point of view as he goes through the trials of finding love through his invention, The Wife Project. While conducting this experiment, he meets Rosie Jarman who is the exact opposite of all the criteria that Don has set out to find in the Wife Project. However, Rosie is on her own mission, to find out who her real father is and she is in need of a geneticist. As the two form an unlikely relationship we get to follow Don as he realizes that love isn't always what it seems and it is not always what looks good on paper.

Positives:
I really enjoyed this book. I loved Don from the very beginning. I thought that the author did a really great job of showing us who Don truly was through his thought processes and his per…

Everything, Everything Review

Hi guys, it's review time! Sorry it's been like 500 years since I've written a book review. I promise that I have a few up my sleeve that just need to be written, so watch for those soon! As for today, we are talking about Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon!
Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Rating: 4.5 🌟/ 5











     I really enjoyed this book. I thought that the format of the book with all of Maddy's drawings and her and Olly's IMs was a really cute touch. This aspect of the book really made it feel like I knew Maddy better and could see her thoughts as they were in her head. It also made the book so easy to read, so I just breezed through the book and could really just enjoy this heartwarming, cute story. I thought the romance in this book was cute, I really liked Olly as a character. The adventure to Hawii was super fun in my opinion, it made me want to go jump in my car and take off on an adventure that I have always wanted…

Booktubeathon has ended, and I'm pretty sure I have never read so much in my life. Although I didn't complete all the challenges (which I knew going into it that I wouldn't, but I was going to try), I am still really pleased with how I did! If you're interested, here is  my final tally:

Number of Challenges Completed: Five

Read a book with a person on the cover (Always and Forever, Lara Jean)Read a book in one day (Lord of the Flies)Read a hyped book (A Darker Shade of Magic)Read a cover buy (The Rosie Project)Read a book with characters different from you (Lord of the Flies)Total Pages Read: 1,255!! I literally could not believe this because I read at the pace of a sloth.
Total Number of Books Read: Four Inserted here is a picture of all the books I read (and loved) during the Booktubeathon! The only downer was Lord of the Flies, I was very much not a fan.

Summer TBR

Hi everyone!
I can't believe that it is already July. Where has the year gone??
As far as my TBRs and Wrap Ups go, I am going to be making some changes. Because of my busy schedule, I don't have that much time to read much more than two or three books in a month if that. So, because I usually read so few books in a month, I feel like making a TBR and Wrap Up every month is pointless. Therefore, I'm going to start posting seasonal TBRs and Wrap Ups. I think that this will be easier on me and less redundant for you to read. I will still be posting each month as much as I can though, I'll just be posting book reviews and other content as I create and write it.

So, I am going to go ahead and post my Summer TBR here even though one month of summer has already past. I will hold off on posting June's Wrap Up and include it in my Summer Wrap up at the end of August. Also, I will not be able to include pictures of the books in this TBR because I am moving on Sunday so all …
