My Journey Toward a Healthier Lifestyle

My Journey Toward a Healthier Lifestyle

I don’t usually do personal posts on here, but this was something I wanted to share! January 2018 At the beginning of this year, I was the biggest I’ve ever been in my life – 195 pounds (I always told myself I would NEVER hit 200), and a size 14-16 depending on the clothing. I felt disgusting every single day, I was ashamed of my body, and my self esteem was at an all time low. Something had to change. […]

Review: The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Review: The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Love withstands all things. Even death. Especially death. This didn’t quite have the magic that The Last Namsara did, but I still really enjoyed it! It was a great companion novel! Don’t expect to see much of the characters you loved from the first book. Or dragons. If you can destroy that expectation before you ever go in, you’ll enjoy this one a lot more. I was pretty disappointed that there were no dragons or Asha. I loved the magic involved and […]

5 Star Books of 2018

5 Star Books of 2018

I recently saw Cristina @ Girl in the Pages post about her 5 star reading drought (which was originally inspired by Lauren @ Bookmark Lit’s post here), and I thought it was such a great post! It made me wonder what my 5 star reads looked like for 2018, and I thought I’d do a post analyzing my own stats! 5 star books of 2018 I figured the number would be low since I’m a picky rater. I had 13 in […]

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

There’s still hope as long as we’re alive. Okay so this one didn’t quite wow me like This Mortal Coil did, I’m afraid. I struggled a lot in the first half – I was feeling slumpy already and I wasn’t loving it like I did the first book. I was bored. So, I decided to put it down for a while. I read something else (Ship of Smoke and Steel, which I did NOT like), and the break was just […]
