#Review: 5 stars to The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken #YA

#Review: 5 stars to The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken #YA

When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control. Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones. When the truth comes out, Ruby […]

#Reviews & Update: Are You Going To Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tanen & If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Just a quick update first:  I’m going to be away for 3weeks so may not be able to post anything during that time. Also, as in true pre-trip fashion, I’ve lost something. My new glasses. Good thing I still wear my old ones now and then, other wise I’d be stuck. I mean, my new ones were lowered in prescription, and they’re better for me, but the lens never cleaned properly. So…anyway. On to the reviews, yes?   Being marooned on an island somewhere off […]

#Video: Ruby Red/These Broken Stars review + update

  So I’m testing out a little thing. I sometimes can’t always be bothered to write a review (yes yes we all know I’m lazy!) and depending on my mood, and depending on how well the videos are received, I’ll do video reviews. So…it’s all up to you. If no one wants to see my mug on screen (which I can’t blame you for, really) then I’ll not do anymore. 😀 Also, I’m REALLY new at this, so I’m still learning what to say and […]

BOOK HAUL #1 March 2015 I’ve not done a book haul in….oh god, years? I’m pretty sure this is either the second or third post I’ve ever done on it.

I’m confusing myself. Right…On with […]

    So for the past few years I’ve assembled a list of books released in the year, month by month.
