Blog Tour: Posted + Giveaway

Anderson never fails to impress me. I was never a nerd when I was in school, until maybe high school. I didn’t really understand labels, but I love how it’s coined in this book – finding your “tribe” – the people you meld with. So what is this book about? I’m so choked up from the ending that it’s hard to think about the beginning. It’s about bullying, standing your ground, and being yourself no matter what. Rose crashes into a group of 4 boys and Frost (our main character) knows that nothing will ever be the same again. Rose […]

Audiobook Review: Boneshake..

Audiobook Review: Boneshaker

Boneshaker is a book I’ve been meaning to read for a while now. I have them in book format, but decided to listen to the first on audiobook. I loved the narration and felt pulled away right into the story. The setting is steampunk, a feeling of darker, older times but with a mix of technology. In fact, technology is what laid to ruin the world that Briar and Zeke currently live in. It’s Zeke’s father and Briar’s husband that created the machine that went awry and created a city to be blocked off because of the living dead. Zeke […]

Graphic Novel Review: Somet..

Graphic Novel Review: Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride

Something New: Tales from a Makeshift Bride brought me back to my own thoughts of my own wedding. As much as I don’t usual read memoirs, I love them in graphic format and have enjoyed Knisley’s other books. I didn’t go into as much planning as Lucy did but it was lovely to see another glimpse into a wedding being planned. I love the way she mixed the format of graphic novel, involved some actual photos and really sectioned the book well. She involved traditions along with what she personally chose for her own wedding. I absolutely loved the moments with […]
