The Raven Cycle Fanfiction Recommendation List

The Raven Cycle Fanfiction Recommendation List

Posted May 19, 2016 by angie in 2016, Fanfiction Recommendations / 2 Comments

So it’s no secret that I am a HUGE fan of fanfiction. It’s a creative, fun and excellent outlet and there is nothing as satisfying as reading a fic where the author so clearly just gets the characters. Burying myself in fanfiction is also how I cope with my favorite things ending. When Buffy, my very favorite show of all time ended, I only coped by reading (and sometimes writing) fanfiction. Same goes with Harry Potter and Twilight. When Billie Piper left Doctor Who? I spent MONTHS reading Rose/Ten fanfic and wallowing. After rewatching all of Veronica Mars prior to […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Picked Up On A Whim

Posted May 17, 2016 by angie in 2016, Top Ten Tuesday / 4 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is the top ten books I picked up on a whim. I tend to pick up a lot of books I’ve never heard of at the library just because I like their covers (yes, I’m THAT person), so it was actually pretty hard to narrow this list down. A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray: On my first day of college I was wandering the bookstore and grab this because of the title/cover. It was the first YA I’d read in years that wasn’t a […]

As always these quotes will contain spoilers so if you haven’t read the book run now while you still can 😀

I’m so excited to be participating in the blog tour for The Square Root of Summer. This book is filled fascinating, complex characters that takes a unique, timey-wimey look at the way we love and grieve and change. This blog tour asks us to answer a set of questions at two different intervals in our life to examine how much we can change in just the span of a few months. BOOK INFORMATION This is what it means to love someone. This is what it means to grieve someone. It’s a little bit like a black hole. It’s a little bit like […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: April

Monthly Wrap-Up: April

Posted May 2, 2016 by angie in 2016, Montly Wrap-Up / 0 Comments

So I took a sort of accidental blogging hiatus in April, entirely due to laziness. I very much spent the month wanting to read not write and so I read a lot of books and wrote approximately zero blog posts. May should be better, except the week I’m at BEA in which I will probably not post anything because I think we all know by now I’m not the kind of person to schedule blog posts ahead. BUT THE BOOKS. After nearly two years of putting it off, I finally reread and finished both the The Hollows and Otherworld series’, […]

HOOOOOOOOOW IS MARCH OVER ALREADY? THIS SOUNDS LIKE A MADE UP THING. HOW ARE WE ALREADY A FOURTH OF THE WAY THROUGH 2016? HOW HAVE I TURNED 30? HOW IS BEA NEXT MONTH? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Anyway, so March was actually a super chill month.

Callie, Unwrapped by Amy Jo Cousins: Pretty much all porn, no plot or character development. […]

Review: Now and Again by Jennifer Ellision

Review: Now and Again by Jennifer Ellision

Posted March 31, 2016 by angie in 2016, 5 Star, Book Review, New Adult / 2 Comments

So I loved this book quite a lot. Honestly that sentence sounds like an understatement to me. Let me be clear: I loved this book fiercely, in that rare way where it means so much to me that I am mama bear protective of it and refuse to hear a word against it like I will literally fight you over these characters and this story. If I could, I’d buy 100 copies just so I could actually roll around in them on my living room floor. That’s how much I loved it. And now that I’m done making it weird, […]
