Happy Sunday, everyone!
I go back to school tomorrow with a nice and heavy 19 credit schedule so if I’m ever MIA in the upcoming months, it’s because I’m buried under unfinished papers, notes and lecture slides with way too much information on each one. Continue reading

I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
“You are too young, I think, to understand yet the nature of desire. You know what it is to want, perhaps even to yearn, but true desire is something else entirely.”
After being betrayed by her family and sent to a juvenile detention center after taking the fall for a friend, seventeen year old Lee Cuddy is on the run and seeks refuge with other runaways in a place called the Crystal Castle with a hidden and sinister agenda. Lee gets out of there pretty quickly but finds that the anonymous society running it believes she’s the answer to an old and powerful secret. Helped by an art loving hacker, Lee hides out in empty aquariums, vacationing peoples’ homes and paroled museums. But the harder she tries to get away, the more caught she gets in the web of the dangerous society who are after her. Continue reading
So I may have twenty odd books sitting at home that I haven’t read yet and I may be planning to read them all ASAP. That doesn’t mean I can’t bring home some new stories…right? 🙂 It’s just more to love, more worlds to jump into. Here’s what I got! Continue reading
Happy Sunday, everyone!
I’m finally home and ready to write tons of posts and actually get to posting them haha. It’s been a long but wonderful summer holiday and being home is really great. But that’s not the news of today. Yesterday, The Rogue Storyteller turned one! Continue reading
Title: Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith
Author: Shaun Hume
Publisher: Popcorn & Rice Publishing
Date: first published 2012
Genre: Middle Grade, Fantasy
*I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review*
Figuring out where to start this review was difficult so I’m going to just jump right into it.
This book has been compared to Harry Potter quite a bit and it’s obvious why- orphan boy ostracized by everyone because he sees things no one else can. Eleven year old Ewan goes from home to home, family to family, and never fits in anywhere until he ends up on a train to a school for Lenitnes, people like him who see the creatures that walk among us. Once there, he starts investigating some shady things alongside his new friends and they try to piece together a mystery. Continue reading
Guess who’s back (back again…guess who’s back…tell a friend)!? I am very excited to let you all know that I have good internet. I have computer access. I have books. I have things to say! I’m so happy to finally be back and be able to start posting more regularly again. I’ve been feeling really frustrated and antsy not being able to write blog posts or to even find the time to read anything to write about. Reading/blogging are both such relaxing and therapeutic things for me to do so it’s nice to be back in that head space again, instead of worrying about getting posts published on time (or at all).

“Now mine eyes see the heart that once we did search for, and I fear this heart shall be mended, nevermore.”
Have you ever wondered what the origin story was of the Queen of Hearts? I hadn’t prior to this but I’m so glad Meyer did because I think this retelling hits the nail on the head. Before she was the Queen of Hearts, Catherine was just a young girl with dreams of opening the most wondrous bakery in Hearts with an enchanting Joker and her best friend. She was as sweet as her baking and watching her turn into an absolute monster was glorious. Continue reading
Guess who’s wifi is still really bad, despite being somewhere that should technically not be so bad? Yep. It’s me. Needless to say, my posting schedule has gone out the window for the next few weeks.
A massive thank you to Leanne for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award! It’s always a pleasure being nominated for these awards as it’s great to know people enjoy what I’m doing and it’s that added boost to keep going! Continue reading
Happy Sunday, everyone!
It’s been over a month since I last made a Sunday Post and I’m so surprised that I haven’t written one in so long. This has partially been due to my lack of wifi and computer access but mostly, I’ve forgotten. Continue reading
