Books off my shelf (I hope to read this summer!)

I have a pile of review requests that will keep me busy through the summer and into the fall. I also have an Audio Book membership that allows me to listen to at least two books per month. And then there are all those film adaptations with imminent release dates… And all those other books […]

FILM VERSUS BOOK: The Fault In Our Stars

So I waited until two days ago to read the incredibly famous The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. On purpose of course; to maximize the amazing TFIOS concentration that I anticipated with today’s release of the movie based on the book. I read 200 pages of the book on Wednesday, and the rest […]

Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

To put it plainly, I enjoyed this book. It starts off with a very exciting and dramatic inciting incident that pulls you right into the story. You feel invested in the well-being of the main character, Jacob, from the get go. After that, this book holds your interest for a few different reasons, some good, […]
