    A THOUSAND PERFECT NOTES // author interview with C.G. Drews ft. mini book review

    I’m literally the worst person I know please don’t kill me for disappearing again. Okay now that that’s out of the way. I actually finally read this book and IT WAS GLORIOUS. And I may or may not have begged Cait to answer some of my weird-ass questions and she kindly obliged. Now granted I read this book like 3 weeks ago so the review will be short but hopefully the glory of Cait will make up for that. Anyways, without further ado, let’s get into it. First of all, let me tell ya a teensy weensy bit about Cait. She runs the blog Paper Fury which you all probably…

    Yeah, I can’t fathom that the year is already over but what else can you do?? To be honest, I would have liked to have read WAY MORE than I did, I mean I passed my goal and all (and read some great books) but still. I’ll get to my goals for 2019 in a minute. I read 36 books this year which I’m satisfied with but next year is definitely the time for MORE. Anyways, I have 8 books to talk about and a couple honourable mentions so let’s just get into them, in no real particular order but some I I enjoyed more than others if that makes…

    PREDICTING 5 STAR READS // books I think I'll love, adore & devour

    Is my TBR pile huge? Yes. Do I buy more books anyway? Yes. I have made a rule for myself to only get books I think I’ll love and I have so many of them right now. I’ve seen this post go around and it seems super fun, so let’s just do it. LORD OF SHADOWS by Cassandra Clare Yes, this is my most shamed. I WILL READ IT.

    TROPES THAT I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF (part 2)

    So a while back I did TROPES THAT SHOULD REALLY JUST LEAVE FOREVER and I wanted to do a “tropes that I love” post. I don’t hate all tropes actually… who would’ve thought? THE “I LOVE YOU BUT CAN’T/WON’T ADMIT IT” OR “SLOW-BURN” TROPE This may be a little annoying at times just because you want it to happen but it’s just not. It also usually takes the entire series to happen but like I love it? Yeah, I’m TRASH for romance. And also a crazy person. But like I can’t resist… THE “CHOSEN ONE SAVES THE WORLD” TROPE With this it kind of depends. Back when I started reading I loved…

    Okayyy so I’m in a bit of a slump and what better blog post then this? Let’s just get right into the kinds od terrors we all have to survive in the book world.

    TROPES THAT SHOULD REALLY JUST LEAVE FOREVER

    Okay, there are some tropes that just annoy the living daylight outta me and today we’re to name them. THE “DARK, BROODY, MYSTERIOUS LOVE INTEREST WHO’S PERSONALITY CONSTANTLY CHANGES” TROPE There’s (usually) always that one guy who is like a bad-boy and you can’t figure him out and he takes a liking to our main protagonist and they get along. Next day, the guy ignores her, or badmouthes or I dunno is just generally mean. Like dude, you don’t get to be like that. You’re giving the poor girl whiplash and just make us dislike you, especially if we have NO idea why you’re doing it. Can this trope just…
