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 […]

The Sunday Post | Finally conquering the slump

*Waves* It’s been a while since I’ve done a recap because that slump totally kicked my butt. But I think I finally conquered it. I’m reading again, and I’m actually trying to brainstorm new post ideas. I’m excited to finally be able to say I conquered my slump. The Weekly Recap is my take on The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer. I will be highlighting the books I’ve read, what I’m currently reading, things happening on the blog and bits and pieces of my life outside the blog. I’ll […]

As Told By Littles | A Bad Case Of Stripes by David Shannon

I will be the first one to admit that the cover of A Bad Case Of Stripes freaked me out. It also freaked Little One out. He told me he really didn’t want to read this but we both decided to conquer our fear and read the book. I have noticed that Little One has been struggling with stress and sometimes I think it has to do with school and trying to fit in. I thought this story might help him. Our library only had the audiobook available but after […]

As Told By The Littles | Leo: A Ghost Story by Mac Barnett

Leo: A Ghost Story was a book featured on Scholastic’s 100 Best Read Aloud Books To Your Kids. . If you think that Leo maybe a little scary for your little ones, I can assure you it won’t. Leo is anything but scary. It is actually very cute. Little One was a bit hesitant when I told him the title of the story, but after reading the story he told me it wasn’t scary after all. The library had the kindle edition of Leo: A Ghost Story that also featured […]

Review | The Goal by Elle Kennedy

The Off Campus is one of my favorite series ever. The Deal, The Mistake, The Score are books I re-read over and over again but I had been putting off The Goal. The Goal is the last book in The Off Campus series but each book can be read as a standalone. However, I recommend you read the entire series so that you can enjoy the series in its entirely. The Goal is centered on John Tucker or Tuck and Sabrina James. Both are characters we’ve seen in the other […]

Audio Review | The Golden Son by  Shilpi Somaya Gowda

The Golden Son was the February book of the month selected by Gerri from Corralling Books. After finishing this book, I have to say that this book should come with a glass of wine or anxiety pills. I had to step away from this book several times because it would give me really bad anxiety. It was just one bad thing after another after another and boy I couldn’t take it sometimes. It even gave me nightmares. I wish I could tell you I’m being a drama queen but I […]
