Troublesome Thursdays: Reawakened, Colleen Houck

I’m only about halfway through this now, but boy do I have the biggest rant prepared so far. Somehow, this book has managed to have a worse protagonist than the author’s Tiger’s Curse series, has been more racist than said series, and yet is somehow also twice as hilarious. In any case, I can tell right now that this book…

Update

So, I haven’t posted in more than a week. Oops. I’ve got a good reason- I took the SAT last Saturday, and I spent all of the week before trying to prepare for it. It’s just that life kind of got in the way of posting reviews and other things, and I’m trying to start…

TBR Tuesday: Nemesis, Brendan Reichs

It’s time for another TBR Tuesday! Today, it’s one that’s coming out pretty soon: Nemesis.

Current Reads: The Hammer of Thor

It took me far too long to even start this book, and it’s taking me even longer to finish it. There really are a bunch of small reasons for this, but there’s really only one that’s making me reluctant to even pick it up in my spare time: I hate being preached to, and that’s…

TBR Tuesday: The Love Interest, Cale Dietrich

Today, I’ll talk about a book that I’m actually super excited about: The Love Interest, by Cale Dietrich. Summary: There is a secret organization that cultivates teenage spies. The agents are called Love Interests because getting close to people destined for great power means getting valuable secrets. Caden is a Nice: The boy next door, sculpted to physical…

Folktale Friday: Pygmalion and Galatea

Today, I’m going to talk about Pygmalion and Galatea, one Greek myth with a happy ending. Pygmalion was a famous sculptor on the island of Cyprus, who gave each of his creations a truly lifelike appearance. He was deeply devoted to his art and didn’t really spare a thought to anything else, least of all…

Troublesome Thursday!

Today, it’s “Things I seriously dislike about YA heroines”: 1. Their love triangles Look, even I can appreciate a good romance, but when a love triangle enters, I just know everything’s going to go downhill fast. 99% of the time, the book devolves into a protagonist trying to choose between Love Interests #1 and 2,…

Wanderlust Wednesday!

Pretty recently, I read The Scribe of Siena, by Melodie Winawer, and it gave me serious wanderlust. The descriptions of Italy were seriously vibrant, and it made me want to just drop everything, buy a plane ticket, and travel. The descriptions of medieval Italy were also beautiful- it talked about the houses, the foods, the people,…

I can’t believe it’s already January 31st. It feel like the New Year was just yesterday. A lot of things have happened. This year, I’m actually trying to stick to my resolutions, and so far, it’s been working pretty well. I’m trying to make newer, better habits, that’ll improve my life in the long run….
