Happy -belated- 2018! Reading-Life Update

I was supposed to be more active this year on the blog, alas that has NOT been the case but it's never too late right?

I'm always active on my Instagram & on my Facebook page so you're always welcome to go there and talk books and all things fun that you enjoy!

For the time being I'll start working on writing reviews for the books I've read this year so far and hopefully I'll be able to schedule some posts.

This year I'm going to be traveling quite some.

Who would've thought I'd be traveling to freaking South Korea this year!!!!???? NOT ME that's for sure hahahaha. But I'm going! Freak out, stress, anxiety and everything included.

Then I'll be going to the US and probably do some domestic traveling while there XD any places you recommend I visit?

Here are the books I've read so far this year in case you're interested or want to give them a go. I'll include the rating I gave each one so you have an idea of how much I liked…

-review- Eleventh Grave In Moonlight by Darynda Jones

(Spoiler Alert if you haven't read the previous books in the series)

-"When Shawn went to you, a weak, corrupted slut––" "Slut?" "––we knew what we had to do." "I think slut is a tad strong." "See, you aren't just any corrupted. You are his corrupted. His concubine. The Dark One's. The demon from hell." "Promiscuous, maybe." She kneeled again. "We were never after you." "Wanton." "We were after the abomination..."-
This book was so good...
Until it wasn't... which was about the time it finished...

Why would someone end a book in the way that this book ended is beyond me.

I was happy! I was in my happy place with my happy ending if somewhat bittersweet but I WAS HAPPY!
I was a happy person people!!!!!! And then Darynda just unceremoniously ripped out my heart, stomped on it, kicked it, and then proceeded to tear it apart... slowly... painfully... making sure I was conscious the …

-thoughts- Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas (ToG #5)


⚔️⛓ Nameless is my price ⛓⚔️
I finished EoS today at probably 2:00am(September 9th) and... I'm practically a shell walking, that book completely tore me apart. I'm not talking about heartbreak I'm talking about complete annihilation of a person by words.

I kid you not, I haven't stopped thinking about the book for the entire day. It slips into my mind when I least expect it to so I feel a really bad book-hangover coming or a reading slump.
Either way, I simply cannot cope, cannot deal, and I'm just so so so broken.

That's it people. I have been broken by words yet again. As if Strange The Dreamer wasn't enough of a torture or Eleventh Grave In Moonlight (review coming soon!) with their endings now here comes Sarah J. Maas and just quite literally proceeded to kill me... in a way that I felt was exquisite at times when in reality it was just a distraction for that so awaited final blow. She didn't disappoint.

Thanks for death by words dear a…

-review- Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones


"Play it for me," he said. Play for me, my dear, and I will hear it. No matter where you go. No matter where I am. I swear it. I swear it..."
You know those times when there's a tiny little voice warning you from not doing things?
Like when you want to exercise but it whispers that there's chocolate cake in the fridge so... priorities?
Or when you want to go to a certain place but that voice makes an appearance and you end up not going only to find out later that some accident happened there?

Well ladies and gentlemen. I bow to that little voice. I should've listened and heeded its advice for it is with great sorrow that I write this and tell you that my heart is no more.

Why? Because I didn't listen to that little voice when it told me NOT to finish this book until I had the sequel. And here I am broken and crying but writing nonetheless because if there's one thing I should do is warn you in case that little voice doesn't work in yo…

-thoughts- Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas (ToG #4)

(Spoiler Alert for those who haven't read the previous books in the series.)

-"You're exactly the way I dreamed you'd be."
I did NOT see that coming.

How am I even supposed to write a review when I'm left so emotionally drained after everything that happened in this book?

How can I be happy by the ending when I know for a fact that the worst has yet to pass.

When will all this craziness end?! I'm completely terrified, scared, spooked because anything can happen ANYTHING.

And I don't want anything bad to happen to ANYONE in that court or to the thirteen or to their mounts, I mean, Abraxos needs infinite life okay?

-It did not seem like a weakness to fight for those who could not defend themselves. Even if they weren't true witches. Even if they meant nothing to her.-
And what about that Manon thing at the end in Rifthold??!


I need a huge HUGE break right now. My head is pounding and my stomach is in knots.

-This witch had been c…

-review- Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas (ToG #3)

(Spoiler Alert if you haven't read the previous books in the series)

-He made her want to laugh and sing and shake the world with her voice.-
She will not be afraid.

Even after all this time, she says it.

My heart breaking over and over didn't matter.

My eyes tearing up didn't matter.

My hands shaking didn't matter.

Bawling my eyes out subsequently didn't matter.

My rage didn't matter.

All the magic, the badassery, the shifting, the endless training, the constant betrayals, the secret stolen glances, the discoveries, the incredible and absolute darkness that was the self loathing of Celaena. T-T

-Abraxos was still lying on his belly, sniffing the wildflowers, when she returned with the dead goat in her arms, its blood now iced on her cloak and tunic. He'd devoured the goat in two bites, then gone back to enjoying the wildflowers. At least he'd eaten.-
Nothing mattered because I am done. I am so done with this.

Why didn't anyone warn me that…
