My TBR Review | Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens agenda is the book that many have told me to read. I was a bit hesitant to pick it up because what if it doesn’t live to the hype? I’m glad that this was voted for my book of the month. Did this one live up to the hype? Absolutely. It was cute, fluffy, and absolutely adorable contemporary novel. Simon is having an online relationship with someone who goes by the name “Blue”. They go to the same school but do not know each other’s […]

Audio Review | The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas

Today would’ve been Tupac’s 46th birthday and seeing how Tupac inspired THUG, I thought today would be the perfect day to give you my review. I read this book back in April/May but its taken me this long to finally put my words into thoughts. THUG was a book I was avoiding. Hype books and I tend to not mix very well but when I read that Tupac inspired this, I knew I had to read this. I’m not exaggerating when I say Tupac saved my life back in High […]

Review | Breathe by Abbi Glines

I’m participating in the Can You Read A Series In A Month challenge and I picked the Sea Breeze series by Abbi Glines. It’s a series, I’ve heard nothing but good things about and it was one I’ve been meaning to get to forever. Breathe is the first book in Sea Breeze series, it featured the typical Abbi Glines romance, a damsel in distress, a bad boy who should stay away from damsel but can’t resist especially when someone else shows interest. It brought nothing new to the table when […]

Armchair BEA | Day 5: Wrap Up!

Today is the last day Armchair BEA 2017. I feel like I didn’t get to participate as much as I wanted because I forgot about twitter chats (you would think being such a planner, I would’ve been on top of this). I blog hopped a bit but definitely not as much as I wanted but I did meet and stop by some amazing blogs that I want to continue following. In a perfect world, I would be BEA next year, its one of my goals to actually go but we’ll […]
