Why I’m Loving the Small TBR Pile

TBR Madness (10 months later)

Yearly TBRs and What I’m Reading

archived victoria schwab

Good afternoon everyone! It struck me last week that we are getting perilously close to the end of 2014. Okay, maybe not perilously, but pretty close. Whatever. Anyway, I usually have a few books “short-listed” to be definitely read during the year. It’s a way for me to remember to buy or borrow certain titles …

Review: “The Moon and More” by Sarah Dessen

1. It perfectly captured Emaline’s conflict of wanting to leave and wanting to stay and the temporary vs permanent nature of her life.

Dessen’s main character, Emaline, has graduated from high school and is ready to move on, but she doesn’t really have any goals or any particular opinion on college. She’s hard-working, though her …

Review: “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell


When you read as much as we in the bookish community do, you get to know the “you” books from the “not you” books. For over a year, I thought that a certain book would not be a Terri book. I was sure it wouldn’t be, I had legitimate reasons and …

Review: “Sinner” by Maggie Stiefvater

Thank you to NetGalley and Scholastic Press for providing me with an eARC of Sinner in exchange for an honest review.

1. Sinner was such a “Maggie” book.

It had the moments of beautiful, twisty prose and deep, thoughtful phrasing that she did so well in books like The Scorpio Races and The Raven …

Month in Review: August/September 2014

During August/September I had a spectacular blog slump but I feel better now! Nothing really happened except that a few of you awesome friends reminded me to change it up if I want, that I can do whatever I want when what I’m doing now isn’t working, and that’s always a good reminder. It’s also just …
