Beware the Kitten Holy ~ Lumberjanes Vol. 1 (Book Review)

Leave a comment Standard

So, I had no idea that Amazon Prime had books that you could get for free with it (thank you Goodreads).

Lumberjanes is one of those graphic novel series that just about everyone has talked about at one point or another and with good reason. Now I understand just why it’s so popular!

Down the TBR Hole #11

Comments 10 Standard

Hey everyone, it’s good to be back! I remember being so excited to post Down the TBR Hole #10 and then literally not doing another one for weeks, but that ends now. I’m back and I’m better y’all.

So the way I go through my TBR is by fixing my Goodreads Want to Read section in descending order. I have it fitted to twenty books per page. Now, I’m finally up to page two! That means I’ve removed over twenty books from my TBR. Is it just me or do y’all smell progress?

The Rules

  • 1. Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.
  •  2. Order on ascending date added.
  •  3. Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.
  •  4. Read the synopsis of the books.
  •  5. Time to Decide: keep it or should it go

Y’all see those two and a half weeks of daily content? *Insert winky face*

I’m not gonna lie, I don’t know how much longer I can keep this up. School starts again on Monday, but I don’t have my first class until Tuesday morning.

That being said, yes I somehow managed to post something every day this week again. I did something similar last year, who knows, this may become an annual trend. Here’s the checklist, make sure to check out anything you may have missed!

Jan. 6th ~ 9 Problems I Have with Victorious

Victorious Cast

Over winter break, I watched all three seasons of Victorious on Netflix. It was really fun getting sucked back into that part of my childhood, but that doesn’t mean Victorious isn’t problematic. In this post I went over nine problems I had, but I’m sure I could go on with more.

Let me Hear a Rhyme (Book Review)

Comment 1 Standard

I’m really excited to get back into the swing of reviewing books. It’s been a while since my last book review. Here it is, my first read and review of the decade.

Goodreads Synopsis

In this standalone novel, Tiffany D. Jackson tells the story of three Brooklyn teens who plot to turn their murdered friend into a major rap star by pretending he is still alive.

Biggie Smalls was right. Things done changed. But that doesn’t mean that Quadir and Jarrell are okay letting their best friend Steph’s tracks lie forgotten in his bedroom after he’s killed—not when his beats could turn any Bed-Stuy corner into a celebration, not after years of having each other’s backs.

Enlisting the help of Steph’s younger sister, Jasmine, Quadir and Jarrell come up with a plan to promote Steph’s music under a new rap name: The Architect. Soon, everyone in Brooklyn is dancing to Steph’s voice. But then his mixtape catches the attention of a hotheaded music rep and—with just hours on the clock—the trio must race to prove Steph’s talent from beyond the grave.

Now, as the pressure—and danger—of keeping their secret grows, Quadir, Jarrell, and Jasmine are forced to confront the truth about what happened to Steph. Only each has something to hide. And with everything riding on Steph’s fame, together they need to decide what they stand for before they lose everything they’ve worked so hard to hold on to—including each other.

WWW Wednesday is a meme that was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived by Sam of Taking on a World of Words.

Hey y’all, I finally decided to try one of these. WWW Wednesdays are so popular in the book blogging world, but I’ve never done them before. That is, until today.

I just get worried because I’m no stranger to DNFing books, so the “what you’ll be reading next” part always made me a little anxious. I really want to experiment more with my blog and get involved with the community, so I’ll try it out this week and see where I go from there.

Without further ado, here are my answers to the three Ws.
