Review | Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (illustrated ed.) by JK Rowling

Hello, fellow readers! My second book of the year is one of my favorites already! I have been a long time lover of Harry Potter. I have wanted the illustrated editions for awhile but could not justify the cost. But my husband surprised me for Christmas and had purchased the gift set of the first three illustrated books. I promise, the illustrated books will make the reading experience like (or better than!) the first time you read Harry Potter .

Book List | Down the TBR Hole #3

Back to cleaning up my Goodreads account! I briefly considered deleting my entire account and starting fresh, but they seemed like a lot of work, plus I would have to follow everyone again. Too much. Instead, I decided to do another Down the TBR Hole post and keep chipping away at the books on my TBR list. Today I will be choosing 10 books instead of the standard 5 books.

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 | Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Hello, fellow readers! The holidays are over, and it feels good to get back to regular content, which means book reviews! Scythe by Neal Shusterman was one of the last books I read in 2018 and I devoured it. I think I would have read it in two or three days if my schedule had allowed it!

2018 Wrap Up | The Worst Books of 2018

I actually found it really difficult to find the five worst books I read this year. According to Goodreads, I only gave two books 1 star ratings and three books got 2 star ratings, but I DNF’d two of those books. I did not want to include DNF’d books on this list because it feels unfair to call them the worst if I never finished them.

Please do not take it personally if I disliked one of your favorite books-we are all entitled to different opinions!
