Heartbeat Monthly (1): January 2018

Heartbeat Monthly (1): January 2018

Last week I posted about potentially changing Heartbeat Weekly to Heartbeat Monthly. I want to thank everyone who commented for helping with the change, I really appreciate the feedback! I’ve decided to go ahead and run with Heartbeat Monthly. I wasn’t posting consistently every week anyway, and I really want to do a full wrap up and add some fun stats in my wrap ups! January haul Shown here is only the second half of the month’s haul. For the […]

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

It’s been a long time since I read Nyxia, so I don’t remember much of it. While it didn’t stick with me like I’d hoped, I did really enjoy it while I was reading! I love sci-fi, so this one was definitely a Jessi book. I loved the concept of the Nyxia itself, soooo awesome! I loved the idea of being able to control it and mold it into whatever you want with your mind. I definitely look forward to […]

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

“My star-touched queen. I would break the world to give you what you want.” To be honest, when I picked this up I had NO idea if I would like it. Actually, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t. But my girl Hope raved about it, so I picked it up anyway. And I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed it! This book really shone in the last half, after the pivotal moment of the book, especially once Kamala […]

Review: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

Review: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

The first chapter of this book hooked me! I knew as soon as I finished it that I would love the book. My attention waned a lot in the middle with the Black Clan’s camp, though. It started to feel kind of generic fantasy and I started losing interest. Thankfully it didn’t last long. Once certain things started happening, it grabbed me again and didn’t let go! And what an explosive ending!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the Japanese culture in this book!! […]

Should I Change Heartbeat Weekly into Heartbeat Monthly?

Should I Change Heartbeat Weekly into Heartbeat Monthly?

I’ve been thinking lately about switching over from weekly wrap ups to monthly wrap ups. I don’t post consistently every week, so my hauls tend to be every month anyway. Last year they tended to be every other month. So it’s kind of pointless to name it ‘weekly!’ I really want to start wrapping up books I read, books I reviewed, and some other stats and bookish things (including bookstagram!) in my wrap ups as well, and it seems redundant […]
