What a freaking awesome novel!!! I am so glad I got a copy of this book from Blogging For Books! One of my favorites this week!
5 Wonderful Stars! [My Review]
This was an ebook I received in exchange for a review thorugh Book Tasters. Unfortunately I didn’t like it all that much. Phenomenal concept, lacking in execution, character development, and good editing.
2 Sad Stars [My Review]
Another ebook I received in exchange for a review; this one from Netgalley! I absolutely ADORED this book. My only complaint being that it ended too quickly! The characters were wonderful and spot on, and I DID NOT WANT IT TO END!!
4 Shakespearean Stars [My Review]
I received this novel from Netgalley as well. I am ashamed it took me so long to read this, because it was SPECTACULAR! I loved ever little words in this book. Elizabeth Strout hit me with every emotion on the spectrum. Another favorite this week!
5 Super Literary Stars [My Review]
Luke, who is one of the best people I know, kindly sent me an advanced copy of his new book Vault of Dreams; I also believe this is his first time at YA writing (Sorry if I am wrong!). I am so glad I got to be one of the people to read this before it releases, because I am fangirling so hard!!! I honestly can’t wait for everyone else to get the chance to read it!
I will have a review of it closer to publication date (July 31)!
5 Raving Fantasy Stars!
I just finished an ARC from Netgalley of Charlie N. Holmberg’s new novel Magic Bitter, Magic Sweet. I just love her style of writing, I love her story plots, and I can’t wait to read more of her books!
I should have a review up soon!

What Am I Currently Reading?
The Mysterious Benedict Society (The Mysterious Benedict Society, #1) by Trenton Lee Stewart. I have 7 hours left in the audiobook. This is a really entertaining read. I really like it so far.
This was a last minute decision to read. I am loving it, though it is a VERY VERBOSE book and it’s taking me awhile! page 223/541 – 41%
I am still only at 5%, but I am excited to continue!
So far I am liking it. Plants are one of my environmental specialties. On page 13/290
This is a re-read for me. I adore this book! My ultimate favorite book. This was the book that made me a reader! It is also the classic read for the book club! On Page 22/211.
I am very surprised by this book. Starting out, I was sure I would like it all that much. I also thought that I wouldn’t like Dinah, but I like her a lot! I am terrified of the moment she becomes that brutal Red Queen for Wonderland! On page 114/306
Unfortunately I am not enjoying this book. I feel like I am adequately nerdy, and though i’m not into videogames or D&D, I know about them. I thought this book would be funny, but it seems to just kind of go over my head. I get that there are jokes in here but I just dont get them… 😦 I might DNF I haven’t decided yet.
I am going to read everything written by this author, EVERYTHING! I am only 5 pages in but already I know this will be just as eloquent, and suck me in just as quickly.
I think this is THE first time where I have liked the book and the movie adaption pretty equally. I LOVED the movie (and Matt Damon was only a small part of that feeling 😀 ), and I am enjoying the book. The movie was the action part and the book is the technical part! So Good! On Page 148/369
