The Big F by Maggie Ann Martin // Very fun and uplifting summer read! + Giveaway

Oh, hi there! Guess who’s back with another blog tour? *points at self* THIS GIRRRLLL.

Welcome to my stop of the The Big F blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours! Today, I’ll be sharing my review and the tour-wide giveaway with you!

Coincidentally, I seem to have been a part of many blog tours which promoted books from Swoon Reads (such as this one hehe) and I’ve always had luck with their books thus far! They always have such fun and relatable contemporaries that I find very easy to read—and The Big F was no different!

Keep on reading if you’d like to know why I loved reading this book!

PS. You can follow the rest of the tour here!

Just Friends Blog Tour // Review + Giveaway

Welcome to my stop at the Just Friends blog tour hosted by Xpresso Book Tours!

I am here to share my review with you (I tried and succeeded in keeping it quite short!) and there will also be a giveaway at the end of this post!

If you’re into easy-to-read contemporaries and the fake-friendship (no fake dating trope i’m sorry. but tbh i’m kinda disappointed too) and pining-for-each-other tropes, this might just be the book for you!

You can follow the rest of the tour here.

ARC August TBR // let’s tackle those ARCs we’ve been avoiding!!

Oh looooook, I found a super cool challenge to participate in next month!

I’m so happy that I stumbled across the #ARCAugust hashtag on Twitter because I’ve been needing some motivation to get through some of my Netgalley ARCs that I’ve been meaning to read since March!

My current Netgalley ratio is 75% WHICH IS AWESOME and the highest it’s ever been!!! But I’ve never actually reached that precious 80% so that’s what I’ll be attempting to do in August!

I currently have 8 ARCs left to read on Netgalley. While I don’t plan to read ALL of them next month, I want to get through a good chunk of them!

I’ve also received some ARCs from authors or for blog tours which need to be reviewed this month so I’m quite determined!

You can still sign-up for the ARC August challenge here! Continue reading “ARC August TBR // let’s tackle those ARCs we’ve been avoiding!!”

SOME VERY EXCITING BOOK MAIL AKA I NEED TO FANGIRL!!! // oh, i WONDER what this WOMAN is talking about?

OH HI, DID YOU MISS ME?

I’m back with another Fierce Fangirl Friday post!

Originally, I had a completely different post planned for today but there’s been a CHANGE OF PLANS BECAUSE I RECEIVED SOME SUPER EXCITING BOOK MAIL YESTERDAY AND I NEED TO TALK SCREAM ABOUT IT.

I’m not sure if I’m FULLY back from my hiatus yet but I’ll talk more about that in my next post which will either be my Wrap Up or the post I had planned for today! Continue reading “SOME VERY EXCITING BOOK MAIL AKA I NEED TO FANGIRL!!! // oh, i WONDER what this WOMAN is talking about?”

Ten Dead Comedians by Fred van Lente // Jackie reads mysteries now?????

Yes, you read that right. I’ve actually read a mystery novel. I can’t believe it either tbh.

You guys know I prefer books that are either Contemporaries, or Fantasy (in all shapes and forms). SO WHAT HAPPENED HERE??? WHY DID I READ A MYSTERY NOVEL??? ME OF ALL PEOPLE???

Well, back when I first started out on Netgalley, I requested (and was approved for) Geekerella. I was SO excited that I just had to check out which other books Quirk Books had to offer—and Ten Dead Comedians caught my eye!

I don’t usually read mysteries but the synopsis caught my eye, and I felt like this would be a nice change to what I usually read!

Did the book live up to my expectations? Was it actually a nice change? Or did this book scare me off from the mystery genre forever? You’ll have to read my review to find out* 😛

*oh my god, could I get anymore annoying

Unique Blogger Award // My Hogwarts House, lots of Shatter Me & more! (+ NEW DIVIDERS)

HELLO AND WELCOME TO A POST WITH LOADS OF QUESTIONS AND MY ~super cool~ ANSWERS.

I have been nominated for the Unique Blogger Award by what feels like thousands of people now and I thought WELL THIS IS CLEARLY GETTING OUT OF HAND so I’m finally going to answer some of the questions!

unique-blogger

I don’t want to make this post too long so that’s why I will only mention half of the people who nominated me and do a Part 2 soon!

LMAO I’ve said “soon” but this most likely won’t happen until like December because I know me and I’m #lazy. DON’T JUDGE ME GO AWAY BYE. Continue reading “Unique Blogger Award // My Hogwarts House, lots of Shatter Me & more! (+ NEW DIVIDERS)”

Review: The Dragons of Nova by Elise Kova // A BRILLIANT SEQUEL

OH HELLO. I’M BACK WITH ANOTHER REVIEW AND THIS TIME IT’S THE SEQUEL TO ONE OF MY FAVOURITE READS OF THE YEAR.

Y’all can probably guess what it is by the title so I’ll not talk around it any longer—it’s The Dragons of Nova!!!

I was so pumped when I got the notification that I was approved for an ARC because I absolutely adored The Alchemists of Loom! *insert shameless self-promo here* *yes, that means you should go and read my review* *yes, this is a link*

This review will most likely consist of screaming and yelling and fangirling… but honestly, what’s new.

June Book Haul // Book Buying Ban? Nope, sorry, never heard of that!

What happened to my book buying ban you ask? *sweats nervously*

We don’t talk about that in this household! 😛

No but seriously, I actually did quite well when it comes to buying (or not buying) books this month! All of the books that will be mentioned here had been ordered before I declared my book buying ban in my VERY HUGE AND VERY FANGIRLY BOOK HAUL — they just hadn’t arrived yet at the time!

I have accumulated 9 books in June which is still okay, I believe! And all of these are books that I’ve wanted FOR AGES so that’s another plus 😉

(ALL OF THESE PICTURES ARE MY OWN SO DON’T YOU DARE STEAL THEM OR I WILL THROW BRICKS AT YOU! If you want to use them, you may ask nicely and I’ll see what I can do! THANK YOU VERY MUCH!)

June Wrap-Up // Books, future plans and NEW GRAPHICS eek!!!

HOW ARE WE HALFWAY THROUGH THE YEAR ALREADY??? CAN SOMEONE EXPLAIN??? DID Y’ALL USE SOME TYPE OF MAGIC THAT MAKES TIME GO 10X FASTER???

I feel like I’ve only just started my blog BUT NO – IT’S BEEN 4 MONTHS ALREADY *gasps*

I’m also more than halfway through my semester at uni WHICH IS CRAZY and it makes me nervous as hell because I’ll be writing an exam at the end of the month PLUS two term papers! The thought alone makes me want to go cry in a corner.

July will be a super stressful month for me but once that is over, I’ll be going on vacation! YESSSS!

future me at the beach once my exams are over

I’m rambling again so how about we just get into my June Wrap-Up! Shall we? Continue reading “June Wrap-Up // Books, future plans and NEW GRAPHICS eek!!!”
