Overall Thoughts:

I had high hopes going into this book and let me tell you I was not disappointed. This book promised me pirates, and a badass main character and I definitely got a lot of both. This being the first book I’ve read that had dealt solely with pirates, I’ve come to the conclusion that we need more pirate books. One: pirates are extremely good looking and you can never have too many cute fictional boys (and girls) running around and two: they are entertaining. I read this book in one sitting and I had the most fun reading this than I’ve had in awhile. If you haven’t already definitely go pick this up you’ll love it!

Synopsis:

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.
Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

13 Reasons Why Review [T.V.]

Overall Thoughts

This show killed me, I spent most of it in tears and it was absolutely heartbreaking and amazing all at once. As an adaptation, I think they did a great job of adapting this for the screen. It stayed faithful to the books and the few changes that were put in place didn’t bother me. If you haven’t read the book or watched the TV show yet I strongly recommend you do so. There are a lot of triggers present in the show so be careful as you watch it but ultimately you will be sucked into this world and will never be let go.

Synopsis:

You can’t stop the future.
You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret . . . is to press play.

Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a strange package with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker–his classmate and crush–who committed suicide two weeks earlier. Hannah’s voice tells him that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.

Clay becomes a firsthand witness to Hannah’s pain, and as he follows Hannah’s recorded words throughout his town, what he discovers changes his life forever.

Why Time Travel Scares Me

I’m absolutely terrified of time travel, alternate universe and multiple dimensions. All these things that fall into the realm of theoretical physics I find extremely confusing and just really hard to understand. They make me terrified of their implications, especially in books. That’s not to say I don’t like books that use time travel as a plot device, I love Passenger by Alexandra Bracken, but hearing that the book is about time travel definitely makes me more hesitant to read it.

Totally Should’ve Tag

I’ve been having a bit of writers blately when it comes to writing posts, so I thought what better way to break through that than with a tag. I know this tag was wildly popular last year, and so I thought I’d try my hand at it. So here goes, the Totally Should’ve Book Tag.

February Wrap Up

Hello everyone! I know I’ve been a bit MIA for a while, but I’ve been awfully sick for the past week. There’s this bug that’s been going around for awhile and I seem to have caught it. Although I’m feeling loads better now, I’m not completely over it, but it seems high past time to have posted by wrap up for February, so here it is. Read More »

Story Time: Meeting an Author for the First Time

I finally reached that milestone. The thing every reader dreams of, meeting the person who created something they fell in love with. The person who single-handedly changed parts of your life with their writing; authors. If you haven’t guessed already by the title of this post, I recently (earlier today actually) got to meet one of my favorite authors for the first time; or to be more specific I actually got to meet an author for the first time!!! AAAAAHHHHHGGGGG.

The Valentines Day Book Tag

It’s Valentine’s day! The day where people around the world celebrate love with their significant others. I, on the other hand, being excruciatingly single (not that there’s any problem with that ;) ) will spend this Valentines eating a ton of chocolate, drinking gallons of tea, and reading a great book! I thought a great way to get into the spirit of things  was to do a Valentines inspired book tag, since books are my constant and reliable companions.

February 2017 Releases

At the beginning of every month I like to get my thoughts into order and make a list of all the great news books that are coming out over the next month. A lot of new books come out each year and I find that is I look at new releases over a period of months it’s a lot harder for a book I’m interested in to slip past me. So here are the books that I am excited for this month.Read More »

January 2017 Wrap-up

So last month I did something I never usually do and that is start off the month with a TBR list. I was pretty skeptical that I would read all the books on that list and it turns out I was right because even though I set my expectations really low and set my TBR list at 5 books I somehow managed to not read  any of the books on my list. I am currently reading Wayfarer, (which was on that list but I’m only halfway through) but that doesn’t count. Even though I didn’t read any of the books on my TBR list I did manage to read a total of 9 books this month.Read More »

Writing Update #2: The One in Which Very Little Actual Writing is Done

As you may guess from the title of this post, this month was not the best writing month. By the end of December I had a little over 11,000 words and now as I sit here writing this that number is now 11,234. I only wrote 200 words. It’s safe to say I’m very disappointed with myself, my goal was to reach 22000 words by the end of the month but as you can see that did not end up happening.Read More »
