This book was a lot of fun! I was worried because it’s told from four characters points of view, but honestly I found myself enjoying each character. I was really invested in this story and how it would unfold. I don’t know how I feel about the ending. For me, it was okay. I know some people really enjoyed the ending, while others not so much. Other than that, this was a good read! It was also my first Karen McManus book, and now I’m excited to read more books by her.
Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta and Cori McCarthy
This was an interesting take on the Arthurian legend. I don’t read many retellings that deal with the Arthurian legend, so this was fun. I really thought this was a standalone going into it, but when I got to the end it leaves off on a cliffhanger. I should’ve looked into it more because I was looking for a standalone. Regardless, this was an enjoyable book.
Yes No Maybe So by Becca Albertalli and Aisha Saeed
I read this during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon. It was a good read for a readathon. It keep me interested throughout the story. It’s one of those books(at least for me) that was good while I read it, but it’s not something I’ll go back to.
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho
I started this during Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon and finished it a few days later. I really enjoyed this book! It was entertaing and very addicting. And I really enjoyed all of the characters. If you’re a fan of KDRAMAS, you’ll really enjoy this because it does read like one!

This was an okay read for me. The ending though went from happy to sad real quick! I eventually want to continue on with this!
I really just wanted to post this because I FINALLY FINISHEDQueen of Air and Darkness! And that means I finally finished The Dark Artifices trilogy! YESSS!!! It’s been a long time coming. I’m happy that I finished this series(which I do enjoy). The books are just sooooo long(which put me off), but so good!
I still have to read a few more books to catch up. At the moment I’m just really happy with how much I’ve been able to read this month, and that I was able to complete my goal of finishing The Dark Artifices!
Dana over at @andbookhoarding hosted the Informal Impromptu Readathon from February 27th until March 4th. As what I normally do, I decided to join in last minute. It was a fun readathon, with sprints being hosted every night, which really helped with my reading. I was able to read 3 books this week, which is the most I’ve read in one week!
The first book I read was The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury and I gave this book a 4 out of 5. This book was a retelling of Aladdin and was a definite surprise. I really enjoyed the characters and retake on the story!
Next I read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. I’ve been wanting to read this book since I watched the trailer. I’m really glad I was able to get to it during the readathon. This book was such a fast read, and I really did end up enjoying it. I ended up giving this book a 4.3 out of 5. I loved how it was told throughout different formats like IM’s and Emails as well. The characters were a lot of fun and I loved the romance.
The last book I read Was Nerve by Jeanne Ryan. I really didn’t like this book and I gave it a 1 out of 5. I watched he movie last month which made me want to read the book. I enjoyed the movie. It wasn’t anything great, but it was simply fun to watch on a Sunday afternoon. However, I really didn’t like the book. I didn’t like the writing, or the characters, and I really didn’t like the romance. It just wasn’t for me. I do however recommend the movie if you want something fun.
Read a Sarah J. Maas book. I’ve heard great things about her stories, and I’ve been wanted to check them out. This will be the year that I do that. However, I can’t decide if I want to pick up Throne of Glass, or A Court of Thornes and Roses.
Read more adult novels. When I decide what book to read next, I tend to pick up a Young Adult or New Adult novel. This year, I want to branch out and read more adult novels. If you have any recommendations, I would love to check them out!
Reread my favorite books. I always enjoy rereading, but last year I didn’t reread any of my favorites. I would love to change that this year.
Participate in readathons. Last year, I didn’t participate in any readathons, and it made me feel like I was missing out. So this year, I want to participate in quite a few readathons. I have to do research and see what ones I would want to join in.
And that’s really it. Short and simple goals for this year. I also have some blogging goals for this year that I will share soon. What’re some of your reading goals for this year?
It has been awhile since I’ve posted anything on here. I’m sorry about that. I’ve kind of been in a weird mood these last few months, and haven’t felt like reading anything. This surely hasn’t been the first time this has happened, and it won’t be the last. However, I’ve been feeling like getting out of this mood, and I need some recommendations to help me. So let me know what you have been reading and loving lately!
So what have I been doing recently? Well at the end of August I started watching Battlestar Galactica(2003 version), and in September I finished it. I was hesitant to start this show because I honestly didn’t think I would like it. I’m so glad to say that I was completely wrong. I absolutely LOVED this show. It was everything you could want in a television show and more! I’m thinking about doing a Why I Love: Battelstar Galactica post so I can share all my love for it there.
Honestly, I just wanted to share with you guys this amazing intro for Fuller House! It’s so much fun! So go ahead and take a listen! And if you haven’t watched Fuller House yet, go for it! I’m four episodes in and really enjoying it!
