My vacation in Puerto Rico

It’s been a week since we came back from a marvelous vacation in Puerto Rico, and I promised to myself before I even went that I would definitely write a blog post about my travels there. My family and I did a lot of really exciting, adrenaline inducing things, but we also took time to relax at the beach! We took a direct flight from Washington D.C. to San Juan and arrived somewhat early in the afternoon. We thought that because we were so early we could probably head to the beach that same day! Unfortunately, that was not the…

Mid-Challenge favorites!

I recently finished 25 books, which means I am now halfway done with my Goodreads reading challenge! To be honest I am very impressed with people who have already completed their reading challenge.

And to celebrate that I have decided to dedicate a blog post to my ten favorites of the year! Queen of Air and Darkness What can I say, I love all Cassandra Clare’s…

I found the tour and the information they gave along the way so interesting, that I decided that El Yunque deserves its own blog post! The rainforest is not far at all from where we were staying, but still we had to get up pretty early! It…

Vow of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson – 6 August I read Dance of Thieves the day it came out, because I also loved The Remnant Chronicles, and the result is that I hardly remember anything from the book. I guess I’ll have to do a re-read before Vow of Thieves comes out! Nevertheless, I’m uber excited about this book! Goodreads blurb below: Kazi…

July wrap up

It’s time for another wrap up post! I think I actually set a new record for myself. I read eight books this month, and normally I struggle to read three. I even read a bigger book of 800 pages! There was also definitely a theme to my reading… Four books were science fiction! Ash Princess – Laura Sebastian ★★★☆☆ I started the month with Ash Princess. I got the book at my local library. Our YA section is actually really well stocked, so that’s really exciting! The prompt seemed really interesting to me, and I was entertained throughout most of…
