Hello friends and happy Friday! Was it just me or did everyone else feel like this week dragged on and on forever with no end in sight? It felt so long so needless to say I’m quite happy it’s over and I can enjoy the weekend. Anyways, I’m really excited about today’s COTW. The character I’ve chosen isn’t brand new to the entire literature world but they’re recently brand new to me, meaning I just read the book or series they appear in. I think this is also the first time I’m choosing a secondary character rather than the main protagonist or even a love interest. That should be a massive hint, by the way. But this character is hilarious and a bit obnoxious with an even smaller attention span than I have but they’re fiercely loyal as well as strong and powerful. If this character was in my life I wouldn’t complain at all.
Hello friends and happy Wednesday! Woo hoo, it’s the first Month In Review of the new year! How have we already gone through an entire month when it feels like January just started? I seriously no longer understand the concept of time. Last year I felt like I was a little slow out of the gate with getting my reading on track but this year it’s like I shot out of a rocket. I have a big goal to reach at the end of the year and I’m not letting myself get behind whatsoever. Gotta keep moving, gotta keep reading. Speaking of reading, let’s get to the point of this post: the books!
Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m beyond tired of all this snow and cold weather. Curse you, Canadian winter! Anyways, I think I’ve got a good Top Five for today. If you haven’t yet figured out from my previous Top Fives where I discussed the best (and worst) book covers, I’m the type of person who judges books. Yeah, yeah, I know the wonderful cliche phrase we should all live by but I can’t help it. I love judging. But I feel like judging book titles is very different from book covers. Right? Like, there are certain covers that look bad and make you not want to read it but with a title…..oh wait, nevermind they’re the same thing. I mean there are some titles that are down right embarrassing even if the book itself is amazing. And there’s more than good and bad titles, in my opinion; there are also those titles that are super extra for the sake of being creative, I suppose. Right or wrong, there are some great books with beautiful titles and I figured it’d be a great Top Five post!
Hello friends and happy Monday! I hope everyone’s had a good day.
I’ve decided to slightly switch gears for our Moodboard Monday, drifting away from books and focusing on a TV show today. Though you’re probably thinking “hey, didn’t you review a book called Haven?” Yes, yes I did. But before that Haven there was SyFy’s Haven, aka one of my favourite shows. If you love paranormal shows with a hint of mystery then you’ll love this one. I tell everyone it takes three episodes to really get into it but it’s worth it, I promise.
Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.
Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.
Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?
But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.
Hello friends and happy Friday! Is it just me or has this been like a super long week that never seemed to end? I’m exhausted. As you know, this week here on my blog has been another theme week to celebrate the release of Maze Runner: The Death Cure which released in theatres today! I can’t wait to see it this weekend! Finishing off Maze Runner Week, it’s time for another COTW. Oh, I wonder which book I’ll be finding my character in this week? Ok so the book might be a bit obvious but the actual character is still a slight mystery. And if I hadn’t already chosen Teresa for a previous COTW I definitely would’ve picked her today. Actually, the character I’ve chosen for today is one that I’ve been dying to do and I’ve literally been saving them for this very week. I’d always be like “oh, I wanna do this character! No wait, I’ll save them for Maze Runner Week.” True story. This character would probably be my favourite character if Teresa didn’t exist. They’re amazing and truly wonderful.
Hello friends and very late happy Thursday! I wasn’t really planning on posting today (mostly because work is seriously kicking my butt) but I realized I haven’t really talked to you all in a while, you know? I mean, I post reviews and weekly memes but I haven’t done and ramblings or life updates in a while so I thought that now would be a good time for an Off Topic Thursday.
Friendly reminder that Off Topic Thursday is an occasional discussion about anything other than books, such as: tv shows, movies, music, and personal life updates
Hello friends and happy Tuesday! As I mentioned yesterday, this week is another one of my little theme weeks and almost everything I post will be in relation to the theme. This theme week is Maze Runner Week which, as you can guess, is dedicated to the Maze Runner series by James Dashner to celebrate the release of the final film on Friday! So while our Top Five doesn’t really have the best title, mainly because I couldn’t come up with something better, but what I wanted to do today was talk about all my favourite things related to The Maze Runner. Whether it’s a character, a scene in the movies, or even a cast member, it counts.
Here is today’s Top Five Tuesday: Maze Runner Things!
Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.
Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.
But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.
Hello friends and happy Monday! I have yet another exciting week planned for us. If you remember a couple months back, to celebrate the release of The Becoming of Noah Shaw I created Mara Dyer Week where all my posts had some kind of theme related to that series. I’ve decided to do another theme week but this time it’s to celebrate a movie release! Finally, finally, the movie Maze Runner: The Death Cure is coming out this Friday, January 26, and I cannot wait to see it. It’s been a long time coming and since I’m so excited I thought, why not make this week Maze Runner Week? I hope you all enjoy this week and if you see the movie I hope you love it!
To kick off Maze Runner Week, our Moodboard Monday is obviously dedicated to The Maze Runner trilogy written by James Dashner. While I absolutely love the first book in the series, I’m a little iffy with the rest of the series. It’s not bad, it’s just I’m still not entirely sure what happens in the rest of the story and I still don’t understand the point of it all. I know something happened, but I don’t really know what that was exactly. Anyways, the first book is fantastic and I’m loving what Wes Ball has done with the film series thus far.
