Ahhhh sorry I’m lateeee! Long story short, I was doing so well with keeping up with these reads but I started painting and gosh it got me off track real fast. But now I’m back with another installment of my Summer Retrospective series (full explanation can be found HERE) and I’m ready to scream about my love for Six of Crows because guys this is my second time reading it and it’s still amazing!
Ahhh guys Bout of Books is officially over and *whipsers* I have failed…
Well I haven’t completely failed… the week started out pretty great! I was reading a solid 100 pages per day but then I started painting more and reading less… until we got through the weekend and I didn’t touch a book once… Opps
Welcome back to my second installment of my summer retrospective series! For anyone who doesn’t know, this is a weekly series where I take a look at books from years past and examine them to see if I believe they are worth the hype and praise they received. Basically, just judging how books hold up over time. You can find my full explanation of this series as well as my prospective TBR HERE. This week we will be discussing one of my favorite books from 2016. It’s a historical fiction novel, something I don’t pick up too often, but it really blew me away. And now here we are, I’ve finally reread Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys, and it’s time to answer the question: did the novel live up to my memory of it? *sobbing* yes!
HOW ARE WE ALREADY THREE DAYS INTO BOUT OF BOOKS?! WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?!
So far I’ve kept a kinda steady pace of 100 pages a day so let’s break that down! 😊
Bout of Books is now one and a half days over, so I hope everyone is having a lovely reading adventure! So far, my week has been busier than expected (but, let’s be real, I’m still not that busy lol) but I have been able to get some reading done, so time for an update!
I’m extremely excited to share my first installment of my Summer Retrospective series (2017 edition). For anyone who doesn’t know, this is a weekly series where I take a look at books from years past and examine them to see if I believe they are worth the hype and praise they received.

SO! What book from the great year of 2017 are we here to talk about today? Well, it’s from an author that I’ve been following, well, ever since I started to get interested in YA back in 7th grade. Today we’re here to talk about Warcross by Marie Lu.
So, if you’ve noticed less traditional discussions, I CAN EXPLAIN! Lol I’ve just been setting up a lot of different things I want to try out this summer including my super fun summer project that you should check out HERE (sorry for the shameless promo 😂) but in addition to that I will also be participating in the Bout of Books 22. For anyone who doesn’t know, Bout of Books is described as…
