Review | Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Hello, fellow readers! There has been a ton of hype of the Grisha trilogy and the Six of Crows duology on bookstagram and booktube. I bought the Six of Crows duology from BookOutlet’s Black Friday sale, but I then I read reviews stating to read the Grisha Trilogy first. Then Netflix announced their adaptation of the Grisha Trilogy, so I knew I had to read it.

Book List | Down the TBR Hole #5

Welcome to another edition of Down the TBR Hole! This will be the fifth month that I have attempted to clean up my TBR list on Goodreads.


So basically the idea is to clean up your Goodreads TBR because we are all guilty of adding books to Goodreads and before you know it, there are 200 books on your list and you don’t even remember what a third of them are about!

How it works:

  • Go to your Goodreads want-to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Review | Two Can Keep a Secret by Karen M. McManus

Hello, fellow readers! I really enjoyed McManus’ One of Us is Lying in 2018, so I was excited to find out she was releasing another book in 2019 called Two Can Keep a Secret.

Review | The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Hello, fellow readers! I usually do not fall for the “bookstagram hype,” but I kept seeing The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo EVERYWHERE last year. It was being raved about in the bookish community, and when I found the audiobook on scribd, I decided to give it a try, not really knowing what to expect.

February Reading Wrap Up | Books I Read This Month

February was not a great reading month. It started out strong with a tense, fast paced thriller and popular contemporary, but after those two books, I fell into a reading slump/hangover from those amazing books! Nothing compared to the first books I read in February, but I still managed to finish four books this month. My goal during school months is to read four books per month, which averages out to a book a week. Audiobooks are really helping me meet that goal right now as I finish working on National Boards and survive the stretch before testing season begins!
