Discussion: 5 stars versus 4.5 stars?

Hello tiny people inside the internet! I need some advice. I’ve read a lot of books recently that have been very, very brilliant… in the last 25%, and a solid 3 or 4 stars for the rest. So what do I rate it? Or, I have no faults with the book, but it still doesn’tContinue reading “Discussion: 5 stars versus 4.5 stars?”

June Wrap Up – Sassy Saturday

This is not posted on a Wednesday and 7 days into July. Your eyes deceive you. Happy Pride Month! I can’t believe I can’t say that again for another year, but I’ve had a great time while it lasted. Even if it’s just capitalism, it’s so nice seeing rainbows everywhere. Finally, I’ve finished all myContinue reading “June Wrap Up – Sassy Saturday”

🏳️‍🌈 Mini Reviews: ‘Only Mostly Devastated’ and ‘Wilder Girls’ 🏳️‍🌈

Ahhh it’s refreshing to have all the characters act the way you want them to for once! This book was nothing like I’d expected. It’s a queer retelling of Grease (I’m hooked already!) but I hadn’t really thought about how that would play into Ollie and Will’s relationship. The book had a strong message fromContinue reading “🏳️‍🌈 Mini Reviews: ‘Only Mostly Devastated’ and ‘Wilder Girls’ 🏳️‍🌈”

Discussion: How Do You Imagine Scenes From Books?

Have you ever had a super clear image of how something or someone looks in a book? I’m just now realising… how strange that is. This might not make any sense. But the other day I challenged myself to rearrange some of the furniture in my mental layout of Hogwarts and I just hit aContinue reading “Discussion: How Do You Imagine Scenes From Books?”

Why Leigh Bardugo’s Crows ARE The Umbrella Academy

Look me in the eye and tell me that this doesn’t work perfectly. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of the Umbrella Academy, and while rewatching some episodes while I await Season 3 (yay!), I’ve noticed some… similarities between that and another Netflix show. Books. Anyway, do you think that this has anyContinue reading “Why Leigh Bardugo’s Crows ARE The Umbrella Academy”
