4/5 stars

There has been a trend that has not ended and probably will stay for a long, long, long, LOOONG time: superheroes. And I LOVE superheroes. From Superman to Wonder Woman to Iron Man, I always love a good superhero story. This one sure does take the cake, too, as this story is about a bunch of CATS! Who doesn't like cats other than the occasional cat-hater or super-dog-lover?! I found all the cats to be very nicely drawn and brave when they were facing their enemy. Also, since I find myself to be a mix of Gryffindor and Ravenclaw, I am very happy that a lot of the cats used their brains while also being the bravest they could be.

Although I may have enjoyed this book very much, I did find…

Series Review with Lil' Bro: Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

Image
I have gone on a journey of
nagginginfluencing my brother to read the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series written by Rick Riordan. FINALLY, he has finished the series, so I thought I could do a mini review/interview to entertain all your minds. I had also thought it would be fun to put up a review of a book series without reviewing each individual book. However, it did not go as I had planned as my brother does not respond to questions immediately with long and detailed answers. I intervened, gave him answers, and wrote down something smarter than what he actually said. Anyway, let's rush into my brother's mind and find out what he thinks about Percy Jackson and his friends.

1. What rating(out of 5 stars) would you give these books?
The Lightning Thief: 4.5-It is just the beginning of the series, and I felt that it was not the best.(Why are you making me get interviewed?)
Sea of Monsters: 4- I found Tyson annoying.
The Titan's Curse: 4.5- I found Artemis and Zoey Nightsha…

[Blog Tour+Giveaway] The Girl Without Magic by Megan O' Russell: Witches, Insta-love, and Jace Waylands

Image
Welcome to my stop for this blog tour for Megan O' Russell's The Girl Without Magic! Put your feet up, relax, and listen to me rant, gush, and discuss this book and what it has to offer its readers.

Synopsis

Death would have been easier, but the Siren wasn't through with her. 
Seventeen-year-old Maggie Trent fell out of a battle and into the Siren's Realm, a land where secrets hide in the shadows and pleasure comes at a price Maggie is unwilling to pay. The time for the Siren's reckoning has come, sweeping away all she deems unworthy to live in her realm. Those without magic are hunted by the Siren. Those with magic are hunted by the Stricken. Fighting or hiding seem necessary to survive. But there is a different way. Bertrand Wayland, unaging and unrelenting in his determination for Maggie to accept her fate, slips in and out through the stitches that bind the Siren’s Realm to other worlds, gaining magic and having glorious adventures. When Maggie follows Bertrand ou…

My Yearly TBR: Top 4 Books I Need to Read Before the End of 2018

Image
There are so many books in the universe I want to read; however, I do not have the time to read all day long as I am ruling my kingdom, which has food raining from the skies daily, and maintaining my grades. I compiled a list of books that a royal dragon can complete within the span of year. Also, I have made my Goodreads goal 70 books and there are only 4(+) books in my year tbr, so I should finish these 4(+) books by the end of 2018, hopefully.

My Yearly TBR


1. Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor I have already mentioned in my Winter TBR post that I wanted to read this before 2017 ended; however, due to my current mood, which is to read all my attained arcs, I have not felt like reading much finished copies, so Strange the Dreamer is #1 on this list as this book has received rave reviews and tons of 5 star ratings. I hope I can be one of those readers who loves this book so I can be in the know and read the second book in this duology once it comes out in 2018.

2. Turtles All the Wa…

Book Review: A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen | Revenge of the Nerds, Relationship Problems, and Lattes

Image
The moment Spencer meets Hope the summer before seventh grade, it’s . . . something at first sight. He knows she’s special, possibly even magical. The pair become fast friends, climbing trees and planning world travels. After years of being outshone by his older brother and teased because of his Tourette syndrome, Spencer finally feels like he belongs. But as Hope and Spencer get older and life gets messier, the clear label of “friend” gets messier, too.


Through sibling feuds and family tragedies, new relationships and broken hearts, the two grow together and apart, and Spencer, an aspiring scientist, tries to map it all out using his trusty system of taxonomy. He wants to identify and classify their relationship, but in the end, he finds that life doesn’t always fit into easy-to-manage boxes, and it’s this messy complexity that makes life so rich and beautiful.

What Have I Promised Myself? | 2018 Book and Blogging Resolutions

Image
The announcement of the New Year could be heard from me as I shout from the foot of my bed, reading one of the best books out there! Do you feel different from 2017 you or do you feel the same? I feel exhilarated since I have just chugged a bunch of hot chocolate(it gets chilly in Texas, okay😎) and I cannot wait for the many 2018 book releases, coming out soon.

Other than the excitement of the beginning of 2018, I feel guilty as I have finally gotten around to writing my resolutions for all the world to read. Instead of stalling anymore, I need to get on with this post and start my resolutions as soon as possible.

My 2018 Resolutions:

1. Writing More Posts
Whether I write weird posts, tags, or reviews for the year of 2018, I am hoping to do more posts than I had done last year. My initial goal was to try to get to 100 posts, but that may be crossing the line due to the amount of time it takes me to write a single post. Even though I want to have a large quantity of posts for this new …

RANKED: My Favorite Books of 2017

Image
As I am currently listening to 2017's top hits, I thought that this would be the perfect time to begin the new year with a post discussing my favorite books of 2017. 2017 was a somewhat great reading year.
I gave a lot of 5 stars to books that can be brought into my favorites and others that can stay on my almost-favorites shelf. I wish I could but some of the books I read last year were not the greatest so I have compiled a list of books that have lasted with me throughout the year.

1. Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare
First off, I have my #1 favorite for 2017: Lord of Shadows. I am pretty sure almost everyone is psychic on this one as any Cassandra Clare book is absolutely #1 for me. The only regret I have about this book is that I wish I had written a review for this when I had first read it, and maybe I will when I reread it; however, I was absent from my blog for a while so yeah. Anyway, I loved this addition to the Dark Artifices trilogy, and I am so glad that we do not hav…
