Getting over a Book Hangover

I think we all suffer from it. Every now and then you read a book that just sucks you right in and then doesn’t let you go. All you want to do is go back into that world, and reading anything else is just pointless. So instead, you just don’t read anything at all. I am talking about the dreaded… book hangover. Getting over a bookhangover can be difficult. Sometimes, you don’t read anything for weeks because there’s just nothing that compares to what you’ve just finished reading. Luckily, I have some tips for you that have worked for me…

Revamping my love for vampires: A review for Silver and Bone

A little over a week ago New Zealand based author Claudia Cain contacted me if I wanted to read her urban fantasy novel, Silver and Bone. It doesn’t always look like it, but I generally really enjoy a good urban fantasy book. Luckily for me, this one did not disappoint. Synopsis right below: Jennifer Jones is trying to be a better person. It’s not easy. She has a lot to make up for, considering that she’s an immortal blood-sucker with a history of serial killing. But at least she probably can’t get worse. And for the last seventy years, things…

My year in books

The year is almost at its end, and what a year it has been! In my life outside the books I graduated for my Associates Degree and transferred to a four-year university! This was quite a change, but I’m loving every moment of it. Okay, maybe not so much the studying and the homework. In terms of reading, I had a really good reading year. I received my working permit, which allowed me to actually get paid for my work, which in turn allowed me to buy more books, yay! Aside from that, I also had a ridiculous amount of…

November/December Book Haul

If you’ve been following my Instagram lately, you know I kind of went crazy with the book buying this past month. In total I bought a whopping twenty-four new books. This is totally not what my book hauls normally look like; I think buying three books a month can already be quite a lot, being a poor college student and all. BUT. SALES, PEOPLE. I love sales. Especially Black Friday sales. Businesses go crazy with their sales. We don’t see this kind of stuff where I come from. “Oh you want a good deal? Too bad. Best we can do…
