The A-List

This week I have been wanting short, fun, easy books to read. I remembered reading the A-List series by Zoey Dean a few years ago and enjoying them so I thought, why not reread? The first book of the series, The A-List, was exactly what I have been in the mood for. A quick, easy, but still enjoyable read. Of course there are many points that I roll my eyes at. As do many of the fiction books about the privileged and wealthy. Nothing wrong with that lifestyle, it just seems very over-the-top. In this book, I love that even … Continue reading The A-List

Squire

First off, OF COURSE KELADRY’S MYSTERIOUS BENEFACTOR WAS ALANNA!!!!!!!! Literally knew it was her from the very first gift. Okay, that point aside, this book was fantastic! Lord Raoul was the perfect person to pick Keladry as his squire. The dynamics between the two were hilarious to read. No other lord would have let Keladry speak her mind as much as Raoul did. I was also happy to see Keladry start a relationship with Cleon. It shows the evolution of her character that she was able to be with him, but not shirk her duties as a squire. Or lose … Continue reading Squire

Ahhhh Tamora Pierce wrote another great installment in the Protector of the Small series! With each book, I have the hardest time putting it down to work on other tasks. I want to devour it until it is done. Keladry is one of my favorite characters. I love how she takes it upon herself to do away with the mistreatment/hazing of the new pages. My absolute favorite part is, without a doubt, the way she handled the kidnapping of her maid. She put her maid’s safety/health/well being/interests above her own, and that is what makes her a true knight. I … Continue reading Page

First Test

The Protector of the Small series by Tamora Pierce was recommended to me by one of my close friends, Nicole. Since we have similar taste in books, I was immediately excited to read it. And once again, Nicole did not disappoint! First and foremost, I love that while reading this book, you forget how old the main character is. From her attitude, skills, and manner, you think she is quite a bit older than she is. I love that she never gives up despite adverse situations and that she always stays true to herself. Keladry always perseveres and proves that she is … Continue reading First Test

Chosen

Where to start. This book did not live up to the standards that the first two provided. For most of it, I felt that I was reading a teen romance novel. And not a good one at that. My fears from the last book proved to be true, the majority of this installment focused on Zoey and her three love interests. The first, most annoying part that I will focus on: she sleeps with her teacher. And Imprints with him. Ugh, seriously? She knows how bad it is but she does anyways. And then her boyfriend catches her and is … Continue reading Chosen

Charm With Me Club

I love love love jewelry. Whether it is designer, handmade, or anything inbetween, I love and appreciate it all. One of my favorite pieces, is my Pandora bracelet. I adore all of the charms I have for it, but one of the things I wish, is that they had more “nerdy” jewelry. Enter Charm With Me Club. Every month they have 1-2 themes for you to choose from and you will receive 2 charms for your bracelet. These charms fit on Pandora, Chamilia, and other styles of “European” charm bracelets. I fell in love with these when I saw that … Continue reading Charm With Me Club

Tinkerbell – May 2018

Since everyone needs a little fairy dust, for May’s theme, I decided to go with Tinkerbell. After all, who doesn’t love tiny fairies? Now, for me personally, I’m not a fan of dangle charms. At least, not right now. Sometimes I am, but not very often. So the little  delicate shoe charm, I will probably put on a necklace. Who says these charms HAVE to go on a bracelet after all? But the heart charm is perfect for my bracelet and I can’t wait to find the perfect place for it! These charms are high quality and are super adorable. … Continue reading Tinkerbell – May 2018

Betrayed

For those that read my review of the first book in the House of Night series, Marked, you will know that I had high expectations for the second book, Betrayed. P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast did a wonderful job with this second installment! In some ways, it definitely lived up to my expectation, but in other ways, it didn’t. Let me explain. Let’s start with the not-so-positives first. Mainly, the love interests. So Zoey is with Erik now. Great! He’s the hottie of the school and is treating her wonderfully. Buying her a gorgeous new dress, hanging with her friends, not pressuring her … Continue reading Betrayed
