Today I decided to share my latest acquirements: the collector’s editions for both Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows (fantasy) as well as Pierce Brown’s Red Rising (sci-fi). I don’t really have the money to splurge on multiple editions of books but I loved these stories so much and the editions looked so lovely that I had to go for it. Keep reading for more on the books, my reviews, and sneak peeks into the bonus content included in these editions!  Continue reading

Top Ten Books Read in 2017

Banner_top books and series

 

I have had the privilege of reading a a great number of books this year so narrowing it down to only ten favorites was incredibly difficult. But at last here we are. The year 2017 has come to a close and to reflect briefly on those months that have passed I’ve come up with a list of the top ten books I read in the year of 2017 along with some honorable mentions (because it really was too difficult to choose only ten!) all listed in alphabetical order. I say books I read as opposed to books released in 2017 because honestly then creating these yearly lists wouldn’t be as fun or hard. Let me know if you enjoyed any of these as well! What are some of your top books you read this year?  Continue reading

I love strong secondary characters in books. It’s one of the things that’ll make me love a book more or could even save it if I’m not that into it otherwise. So I thought I’d make a post and give my favorites a little shout-out! (Note: I haven’t finished reading all of these series so if one of these characters becomes ridiculous or unbearable then don’t tell me! Haha)  Continue reading

“I live for the dream that my children will be born free,” she says. “That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.”
“I live for you,” I say sadly.
Eo kisses my cheek. “Then you must live for more.”

Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Continue reading
