How to Organize Your Shelves + Unhaul!

How to Organize Your Shelves + Unhaul!

April 20, 2014 Reviews 0

  Hey guys, I recently re-organized my shelves and I’m super proud of how it turned out. At the end of the post, I have a video sharing some books that I don’t want anymore and that I’m willing to giveaway/trade/donate. As you can see, before I organized my bookcase, I had a lot of books scattered in random piles and the bottom of my shelves/the top had random junk. Here are the key things I focused on when organizing my shelves. Decide which books you want to keep. Before anything else, you have to choose which books you will include on you shelves. First off, take out all your favourites because of course you’ll want to keep those. Also take out all your unread books (I personally read all the books on my shelves BUT you can use the following questions… Read more »

Second Star by Alyssa B. Sheinmel

April 17, 2014 Reviews 5 ★★

When I read the synopsis for Second Star, I was super excited to read it. Peter Pan retelling? HECK YEA! Hook/Wendy/Peter love triangle? Uhm, YES! But sadly, I did not forsee the signs that this book was not for me. First, the surfing. This book has so much surfing, beachtime fun and other things I dislike in it. The cover is people on surfboards and yet I did not put together the fact that this book has surfing in it. I really really should have known better, THE SYNOPSIS EVEN SAYS IT. But before you start ranting to me, let me explain. I am not a beach person. I hate hot weather (I get uncomfortable when sweaty-gross) and sand annoys me. It gets EVERYWHERE. So the beach setting is not for me but it does make Second Star a perfect summer read. Second, the… Read more »


Time To Nut Up or Shut Up…

Time To Nut Up or Shut Up…

April 15, 2014 Reviews 11

Hey lovelies, as I was sitting here thinking of ARC’s in general and my progress with ARC April an email popped up on my screen from Cuddlebuggery. Apparently the masterminds over there have a “few” books they’ve forgotten to review and Steph went through them all in one post. Now this, mixed with my ARC based thoughts gave me a fabulous idea! I am going to do a post that covers all the ARC’s I’ve requested and have either DNFed or totally lost interest in.  I’ve spent so much time trying to convince and force myself to finish them when the reality is that’s just not going to happen for each and everyone. So without further ado, I give you my first round of ” overdue reviews”. Blush By Lauren Jameson Published May 7th, 2013 Received via NetGalley Blush was a… Read more »


Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Things That We Want to Own

Top Ten Tuesday: Bookish Things That We Want to Own

April 15, 2014 Features & Spotlights 8

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by  The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s topic  is Top Ten Bookish Things (that aren’t books) That We’d Like to Own. I’m super excited for this topic and I have a set of bookmarks that are totally applicable for this! Top Ten Bookish Things (that aren’t books) That We’d Like to Own! Personal Library Book Embosser Purchase Here This awesome device (that is not pictured) basically creates a little stamp on the inside of your book that says “From the library of..”. I’ve always wanted one ever since I saw Asti receive one for Christmas and now I would love to get one for all of my awesome books. And it would help keep track of the books I lend out to people.  Sherlock Holmes Book Scarf Purchase Here This scarf… Read more »


Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop

Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop

April 14, 2014 Reviews 4 ★★★★★

  Yeah this was pretty much me the entire 354 pages of Murder of Crows. AKA one of the best fantasy books I’ve ever read. And yes I know how dramatic that sounds but I sincerely mean every bit of that. Murder of Crows starts off just a few months after Written in Red, and things are slowly starting to shift and build and change for Meg in The Others courtyard. But even with Meg settling in and The Others growing affection for her the world is still suffering from the “sickness” that we saw in Written in Red. I’ve been struggling to write this review for over 2 weeks. I want to show you all how much I loved it, how well it was written, why I think you should grab it and how sure I am that you’re going to love… Read more »


Stacking the Shelves: All the New Releases!

Stacking the Shelves: All the New Releases!

April 13, 2014 Features & Spotlights 7

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted at Tynga’s Reviews where we can showcase the books we bought, borrowed or received for review. This week was such a busy one for me. There were so many new releases this week, I actually went to the bookstore twice in one week (which I never do). It was also oddly weird because the cashier at the time recognized me from when I purchased my Kobo and he said “nice to see you again” and he said “see you soon” which is odd because I WENT TO THE STORE A COUPLE DAYS LATER (but he wasn’t there but still, coincidence!). I am super excited about this haul because SO MANY NEW RELEASES! Also, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before isn’t coming out ’till the 15th and when I saw it on the shelves I literally… Read more »
