Book Review | Vicious

Hi all

I recently read Vicious by V.E. Schwab and I am pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book!

This is my first time reading anything by V.E./Victoria Schwab but I cannot wait to read more of her work! I have already purchased Vengeful along with the Shades of Magic trilogy!

I recommend this to anyone who enjoys villains, morally grey characters, supernatural powers, revenge plots and found families.

5 star read for me and I highly recommend!

Problematic Authors | Part 1

This is part one of two (so far).

In this first part I talk about why I don’t support Stephanie Meyer or Veronica Roth. By no means am I telling anyone else what they can or can’t do. These are just my personal opinions

Let’s Chat: Twilight and Midnight Sun

Hey y’all,

I somehow missed that this was the week that Midnight Sun was being released so I filmed a bonus video for this week.

I will not be reading Midnight Sun but I am curious about if and how Stephanie Meyer has taken the time to address all of the problematic content in Twilight.If you happen to see any reviews please send them my way as I am really curious.

I’m not at all judging those who are reading it but as an adult I know I wouldn’t enjoy reading it so I’m not willing to force myself to. Whether you enjoy it or not, let me know your thoughts if you plan on reading it. I’m so interested to see how the bookish community will respond!

Also, please consider donating to the Quileute tribe if you are able The representation that they received in this saga was not well done and currently they need to move to higher ground for their safety. You can read all about it here: https://mthg.org/

Are you reading Midnight Sun? What are your thoughts on Twilight in general?

Book Review | The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

Hi friends,

I know some of you have been following me as I reread The Hunger Games in preparation for this prequel and I am sad to say that I did not enjoy it as much as I had hoped I would.

It left me with more questions than answers and I thought that we would get to see Snow’s rise to power.

If you’ve read it let me know what you thought.

The first part of this video is spoiler free so don’t worry about watching if you haven’t read it yet, I always provide spoiler warnings 🙂
