I'm alive, I swear! + My Shortest Reviews EVER

I'm alive! I've been pretty absent from my blog for A WHILE and I've been absent from blog hopping for even longer. There are reasons, but I won't go into what they are. Sorry. However, I will let you know what I've been up to for the last few weeks that has continued to keep me away from blogging. 

For the most part, school is what has kept me from having time to blog. This is week three of my second semester of college and I'm taking one more class this semester than I did for the last one. Also, one of the classes is a math class (which is definitely not my thing) so send help! 

Other than school, I've been completely swamped with my kiddos, working on my WIP (Poetry book #2 coming in 2019...hopefully. In the meantime, check out Goodbye Darkness, Hello Light available in paperback and for Kindle on Amazon!), hunting for an overnight job to squeeze into my schedule, and boring normal life things. Who else has to schedule time to do laundry or read? (Please don't let it be just me. Ha!)

Okay, enough about me. I know you're here for the SHORTEST REVIEWS EVER. I never got around to writing full reviews for these, but I figured I could write at least a little something.

(Click on pictures to view on Goodreads.)


Perfect for fans of "You" by Caroline Kepnes.


LOTR and D&D had a bizarre and intriguing love child. Wait, isn't D&D based off LOTR? Or the other way around? 

(Trilogy review as a whole. Separate ratings below.)


This series is heart wrenching and emotionally consuming. 

Also, here are two books that I DNF'd and a quick reason why.

I DNF'd this one because there was too much happening with riding horses instead of the lesbian romance. I couldn't hang in there any longer for the romance to take off. 

I wanted to love this one so much and it did start off wonderfully unique and dark. However, the book lost me when the development became non-existent. 

There you go, the shortest reviews I have EVER done. Have you read any of these books and if so, what did you think of them? 

I've been gone for a bit so comment below what you've been up to any links to blog posts you think I should check out (yours or others). :D

Baby Teeth By: Zoje Stage Mini Review

Thank you to St. Martin's Press for providing a free copy of Baby Teeth By: Zoje Stage in exchange for an honest review. 

Baby Teeth reminded me a bit of that old movie The Bad Seed. I love how the POV went back and forth between Suzette and Hanna. For me, it was almost like a double unreliable narrator type of thing. Which I LOVE unreliable narrators! The story is very fast-paced and the ending is phenomenal. It left me with a lot of questions still unanswered, but in a good way! The best books are the ones that you keep thinking about long after you're done reading them. I recommend Baby Teeth for sure.

Strange the Dreamer By: Laini Taylor Review (Okay, it's basically me fangirling out.)

"Sometimes a moment is so remarkable that it carves out a space in time and spins there, while the world rushes on around it. This was one such."

 I absolutely adore Strange the Dreamer! I am now a HUGE Lazlo fan for life. There are so many great quotes in this book. Even though I don't usually share quotes, I have to share some of my favorites in the review for this one! 

"The dream chooses the dreamer, not the other way around."

(*Side Note: This print is from Fandom Honey Bees! The colors are so vibrant in person. I love it. I highly recommend you check out her Etsy shop. If you want 10% off an order use the code- BEEWITCHED10*)

"I think you're a fairy tale. I think you're magical, and brave, and exquisite. And I hope you'll let me be in your story." 

SWOON! I love Lazlo and Sarai so much. Also, the writing is beautiful and flawless. My only two MINOR complaints are that the beginning is a tad slow with the worldbuilding and I guessed early on the big reveal near the end. Even though I was expecting it, I still enjoyed how it all played out. So I can't really even complain about that one. 

"Without his books, his room felt like a body with its hearts cut out."

"And that's how you go on. You lay laughter over the dark parts. The more dark parts, the more you have to laugh. With defiance, with abandon, with hysteria, any way you can." 

That quote right there, yes the one right above this that you just read, is my favorite quote from the entire book. The truth in those words has really resonated with me, especially with how my life is 95% dark parts at the moment. This quote and the ending of the book had me literally choking back tears.

Overall Strange the Dreamer is such a wonderful book and I HIGHLY recommend it. It was even better than I had expected it to be. Is it October yet? I need Muse of Nightmares NOW.
