A Review of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child | I really don’t know what I just read

Hello, bloggy friends. I have just finished Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Yes, that one. That script of that play that everybody and their mother has been screaming about for weeks, for months, the one that had midnight release parties and the entire Harry Potter fandom coming back- not like they ever left, really- full blown. The thing that JKR said she wasn’t really … Continue reading A Review of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child | I really don’t know what I just read

Why Friendship is Infinitely Greater Than Romance in YA

Hello hello all! Although every blogger and their mother has written a blog post on this/mentioned it/screamed about it in comments, I thought that I would tackle it as well! It has become very evident to all us bookish nerds that practically every YA book- especially contemporary YA- contains romance and insta-love and teens who apparently have found their “”soulmate””. And honestly, it’s kind of awful. … Continue reading Why Friendship is Infinitely Greater Than Romance in YA

The Handwriting Tag (created by yours truly)

Hello hello! Recently, I’ve felt like making a tag. Tags are fun! I like them a lot. Except I didn’t actually know what to make a tag about. But handwriting is very, very cool, so I thought I’d make a tag out of that! I like seeing the different ways people right- my mom’s is very loopy and sort of cursive, my dad’s is very … Continue reading The Handwriting Tag (created by yours truly)

ARC Review: You Were Here by Cori McCarthy | unique in every single aspect

Ohhhhh my goodness. Oh mah goodness- I think this is the first ARC that I’ve fallen in love with this much (thanks, Netgalley and Sourcebooks!). I was not expecting to love You Were Here as much as I did! It was one of the most unique, thrilling reads I’ve had in the contemporary genre in a while. (Also, its cover is mag-ni-fi-cent. Just sayin’.) You … Continue reading ARC Review: You Were Here by Cori McCarthy | unique in every single aspect

Do We Give Filmmakers Too Much Grief Over Book-to-Movie Adaptations?

Over a year-and-a-half of being in the blogging community, something that I’ve noticed  is what happens when people start talking about a movie. When we hear that a particularly good Young Adult or Middle Grade novel is being made into a movie, there tend to be explosions. People say “I hope they don’t turn so & so into such & such!” and freak when their favorite character has a … Continue reading Do We Give Filmmakers Too Much Grief Over Book-to-Movie Adaptations?

ARC Review: Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley

I received this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my review in any way. Worlds of Ink and Shadow was definitely a very intriguing book and take on the Bronte siblings’ life. The book follows Charlotte, Emily, Anne, and Branwell, who are all curiously divided by their sisters’ deaths and ability to cross through to … Continue reading ARC Review: Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley
