    Happy Top Ten Tuesday! This week I am doing the  Top Ten Books of my Childhood! For this list, I am including books that give me some serious nostalgia for the simpler days!

  • Twenty Facts About Me

  • Renegades by Marissa Meyer

    “One cannot be brave who has no fear.” Morning Everyone! Today I am reviewing Renegades by Marissa Meyer! If you don’t know who she is, Marissa Meyer is the author of The Lunar Chronicles and the standalone novel Heartless. I absolutely adore The Lunar Chronicles and Heartless is on my Want to Read list. I read this book as a part of my December TBR list after hearing about it for months! The main thing that appealed to me about this was the fact its a SUPERHERO book. This is not something you typically see in the YA genre, besides the book Powerless which is AMAZING and you should definitely…

  • My Fall/Winter Music Playlist 2018

    Hello! Today I am sharing with you guys some songs from my Fall/Winter playlist. I have been known to change my music taste with the seasons. This summer, it was country music all the time, and before that, it was show tunes (though showtunes is sort of a constant). Recently, I have been listening to a mix of indie and folk songs. I like songs that tell stories, that have a purpose, so I wanted to share the ten songs I have been listening to this fall and winter (in no particular order): This Heart I Know by Westward the Tide Somewhere Only We Know by Keane North Carolina by Little…

  • The Shadow Kingdom by C.J. Inkson

    Hello Everyone! Today I am reviewing The Shadow Kingdom by C.J. Inkson! This book was published on October 31st so it is still relatively new! I got this book through NetGalley and I am so happy that I read it! I found the book’s concept so original and interesting. Imagine a land where all the color was sucked out, leaving its people with shades of black and white. Many years ago, a Shadow Curse was cast on an island, draining it of its color and leaving the people alone and in the dark. Elliot West comes from a line of Watchman, tasked with keeping watch in case there is any…

  • Top Ten Tuesdays: Books I Would Not Read Again

    Hello Bookies! Today I am giving you all my Top Ten books (and series) I would not read again.

We all have those books where we just don’t really feel like reading again and these are my top ten! Hope you enjoy:   Matched by Allie Condie Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins My Ex from Hell by Tallulah Darling Chosen Ones by Tiffany Truitt Black City by Elizabeth Richards Hungry by HA Swain Everneath by Brodi Ashton The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor The Dig…

  • Getting Sick in College + Tips to Avoid it

    Getting Sick in College – Yes it sucks. College. A place filled with endless opportunities, fun adventures, and germs. Yes, adjusting to this new environment does mean that you are likely to get sick within your first year. This phenomenon has been coined the Freshman Plague, and I caught it a few weeks ago. It started with a sore throat, then a cough, and then I couldn’t move from my bed. I went to the health center in order to be diagnosed by a real doctor, and not Healthline. Thankfully, I did not have strep, just a pretty bad Post Nasal Drip, but damn, that recovery process was brutal. I…
