Unpopular Bookish Opinions Book Tag

Image
This week has been very busy and stressful for me; and, I do not feel like writing a full review since that takes hours before I am happy with it. Even though I may not want to write a book review, I want to write a post to make myself happy and accomplished since I will have completed my weekly goal for posting. So, I decided to do an oldie-but-goody book tag that was created long ago in the mystic land of BookTube. It is the UNPOPULAR OPINIONS BOOK TAG, and I find this so fun and interesting since one can learn so much about someone from their opinions! The reason I decided to do this tag is so you can learn a little bit more about me, and I have many opinions that I would like to share with all of you. You know what, let's just get into this controversial book tag!

Disclaimer: I do not mean to offend anyone if your favorite book or series is mentioned in this post. Everyone is allowed to have their own opinions, so I am only expressing my opinions, not hating on someone if one …

Book Review: Black Bird of the Gallows by Meg Kassel

*Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review. This kindness in no way affects my opinions, and this review is honest.

"Reece leans forward, reaches for me, then drops his hand. 'I'd give anything to be a normal boy. To stay. Go to prom with you. But even one of the reasons why I'm drawn to you is because I'm attracted to death.'"
-Meg Kassel, Black Bird of the Gallows

3/5 stars
About everyone is afraid of the inevitable death that awaits one, unless if you are a harbringer of death, a beekeeper, or a scarecrow.

With the new harbringer of death in her life, that includes more supernatural creatures like a beekeeper who is trying to bring destruction and chaos to the world a…

The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding by Alexandra Bracken

Image
Foreword: I have received an ARC(Advanced Review Copy) of The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding from the publisher to do a honest review on it.


"I would say it's a pleasure to meet thee, Prosperity Oceanus Redding, but truly, I only anticipate the delights of destroying thy happiness."
-Alexandra Bracken, The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding

5/5 stars

In one of the oldest towns in America, Prosper Redding is celebrating Founder's Day with his family, and realizes something is brewing. Prosper is an outsider with no friends, a weird family, and now a fiend is living inside of him due to his more than great grandfather breaking a contract with Alastor, a fiend who wreaks havoc on the human world. Prosper's evil grandmother tries to kill him, which leads him to be rescued by a man said to be his Uncle Barnabas and his cousin Nell, who may be too helpful to his condition. He, then, enrolls in the local school, creates a whole new identity for himself, and finds himsel…

My Monthly Adventures: August 2017

I have decided to start a new segment on this blog called My Monthly Adventures. Since the school year is starting, it is the perfect time for me to begin this new addition to the post family. To start off this new segment, school has started(BOO and HOORAY), sleep has taken a step down on my list of things to do, and school work has flooded my life. Since this is a monthly update, I will tell you what I read and did this month.

For this month, I did a good amount of reading, but I did not read the best books on the bookshelves. I mostly gave books 3/5 star ratings and lower for most of the books I read, which is not normal.
