Bite-Sized Manga Reviews: Library Wars, Love*Com, A Silent Voice, and Death Note

Bite-Sized Manga Reviews: Library Wars, Love*Com, A Silent Voice, and Death Note

I’ve been reading a lot of manga lately, but I haven’t reviewed any of it here on the blog, partly because I don’t feel super-qualified (as a newbie manga reader I don’t really know what I’m talking about) and partly because I just wasn’t sure how well these reviews “fit.” But now that I’ve read five full manga series, I’ve decided that I at least need to post some bite-sized reviews and tell you my […]

Letters to the Lost Review (AKA My Admiration for Brigid Kemmerer)

Letters to the Lost Review (AKA My Admiration for Brigid Kemmerer)

I have read every single one of Brigid Kemmerer’s books, and I have not been disappointed yet. When I first read the description of this one, I was a little surprised to see that it’s a straight-up contemporary (considering that her Elementals Series is paranormal and she wrote so many of those).  But as I read, I started to realize that I was falling in love with it for the same reasons that I fell […]

Graphs Make Me Happy! Let’s Discuss.

Graphs Make Me Happy! Let’s Discuss.

I was recently reading the 1st Blogoversary post over at Sparkling Letters and I realized something: Graphs make me happy! They just do. Seriously, if I see a post that has graphs in it, I just have to read it—and I gobble them up. I see graphs in someone’s wrap-up post and I perk up and take notice. Even though I’m a completely disorganized person, somehow data in a graph calls to me. It almost […]

Little Fun Club Blog Tour & $50 Giveaway: A Lit Box for Kids 0-12!

Little Fun Club Blog Tour & $50 Giveaway: A Lit Box for Kids 0-12!

  I thought I’d try out this fun book club for kids and see what they have to offer! I love the fact that they send high-quality and award-winning books. I told them that my daughter is 12 years old, so they sent books for her age group. They have really specific age groups, so you get something that fits your child perfectly. The website also says that they ask questions about your child’s preferences […]

Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray: 5 Soaring Stars

Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray: 5 Soaring Stars

Defy the Stars is sci-fi at its very best—it’s exhilarating!  What Fed My Addiction: Complex characters you’ll love! Noemi is the type of person you can’t help but root for. She’s a bit of an underdog—doomed from the start of the book to die, she’s accepted her fate. After all, she doesn’t feel like her life is worth much anyway. Her story is sad but compelling, and the first person to truly convince her of her intrinsic […]

Laini Taylor’s Strange The Dreamer Event Recap

Laini Taylor’s Strange The Dreamer Event Recap

I had the privilege of attending an author event for Laini Taylor’s newest book Strange the Dreamer (which you’ve all said is fantabulous, so I can’t wait to read it) with my mom, and I thought I’d share some of the fun facts that I learned! The event was really interesting because she was interviewed by Laura Ruby, author of The Bone Gap, so they had some great conversations about writing style, etc. Fun facts […]
