Currently Reading Several Books at Once

I’ve done this in the past often thanks to Wattpad and I think part of me missed the feeling and so I’ve started reading a bunch of books all at once.

Starting with the longest standing reads to the most recent, here are my current reads:

Starting with Horns by Joe Hill

I’ve been reading this book one chapter every once in a while for over two years now, possibly three or four I have no idea. The story itself has stuck in my head as I’ve read it and it’s just something that can tank my mood so I’ve been reading it sparingly and I have no idea when I’ll finish it.

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth

One of my best friends got me this book two Christmases ago and a few months ago I decided to start reading it. It’s been another emotional read that I’m taking slow and reading sparingly so I have no idea when I’ll finish it.

Replica by Lauren Oliver

I started reading this a few weeks ago because I’ve been very much wanted to read it and due to focus on other books I’ve been reading this one sparingly as well, but I might do a greater focus on it soon.

The Unstoppable Wasp by Sam Maggs

This is my current Netgalley read I’ve also been reading for a few weeks. It’s been my main focus and I’m over half way through and already had a whole nerd out conversation with my boyfriend about it. I should be finished with this one in less then a week or so.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

I started reading this last week. I’m only a few chapters in so it’ll be a while before I finish this one. However, I do want to finish it before the Netflix show comes out because I’m really excited about watching it.

The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion by Margaret Killjoy

I started this two days ago. This one I started because I’ve had an e-library hold on it for months and it just became available. I plan on having a decent pace reading this book since I have a limited time to read it. Currently, I’m only a few pages in.

So in total six books as of right now. I’ll probably start “Always and Forever Laura Jean” soon too just cause the movie is already out and I want to read the book first before I watch it.

House of El: Book One: The Shadow Threat: A Review

House of El: Book One: The Shadow Threat by Claudia Gray

Illustrated by. Eric Zawadzki

My Rating: 4 stars!

Cover Rating: 10/10 the art is stunning! Perfect art style for this story I adore all the art!

Publisher: DC Comics

Publish Date: January 5th, 2021

Number of Pages: 208

Received: DC Comics provided a physical copy in exchange for an honest review.

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis:

Welcome to a brand-new vision of one of comics’ most famous tragedies from New York Times bestselling author Claudia Gray and illustrator Eric Zawadzki. In this first graphic novel in a trilogy, explore Krypton like never before: through the eyes of two teenagers on opposite sides of the same extinction-level event.

Zahn is one of Krypton’s elites: wealthy, privileged, a future leader. Sera is one of Krypton’s soldiers: strong, dedicated, fearless. Their rule-bound society has ordained that their paths should never cross. 

But groundquakes are shaking the planet’s surface. Rebellious uprisings are shaking the populace. Krypton’s top scientists–Jor-El and Lara–conduct a secret experiment that is meant to reform their planet from the cellular level up. Zahn and Sera must join forces to investigate the hidden dangers truly threatening Krypton. In the process, they form a bond that will endure past the end of the world…

Opening Sentence: “Wake up!”

Musings: As someone who has never read any Superman comics and has not watched Superman since I was a kid, I liked that I could still gain a sense of the world and an understanding of events in an easy way. The beautiful art helps immensely and paints the picture of an advanced world that has lost the value of emotion allowing growth and change in society. Everyone is made perfect and emotionless. A cool and calculated mind.

What I Loved:

The idea of the world. This is a society that has progressed so far that minds are made so perfect there is no desire to progress. Due to this, the rich live a life that doesn’t acknowledge that the world is unstable and falling apart. In order to fix this, experiments to give back emotions to a select few begin and through contrast these people find the desire to search for solutions to fix the world they live in that is beginning to break apart.

The art. There’s so much color and action on every page. It depicts the desperation of the world lived in and the comfort of the Rich’s lives. It’s beautiful and I love it.

All in all:

This comic is the start of a fun, action-filled adventure. I’m excited to see how Zahn and Sera band together in order to help save their world and restore their humanity along with it.

Sorta My Goals for 2021

What I want for 2021 has very little to do with any sort of thing I want to obtain or do in the tangible accomplishment kind of way. More in a mental change kind of way.

2020 felt like a building up of a lot of things to be fearful and anxious of. I want to instead use that as a reason to turn into myself and panic to start turning outward and enjoy the things I have in my life now. Loving more. Laughing more. All of course in a safe and socially distant manner. Enjoying the games I’ve come to love. Reading more again. Being happier.

I want to be one who celebrates all the good things in my life instead of complaining about what’s bad. Cause falling into despair only causes hurt and 2020 had enough of that.

My goodreads challenge this year is 1 book. I am not putting pressure on myself to do anything in particular. Just to enjoy and love more and decrease my life’s stresses.

Any goals this year I won’t be making right now. Whatever, accomplishments I make will be bonuses. This year I just want to feel like I can breath.

I hope that for all of you, your 2021 is a better year. We all deserve it.

Burn Our Bodies Down: A Review

Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power

My Rating: 5 stars!

Cover Rating: 10/10 I don’t think a more perfect cover for this book could exist. It perfectly captures the story inside it. It’s stunning!

Publisher: Delacorte Press

Publish Date: July 7th, 2020

Number of Pages: 352 pages

Received: Netgalley provided an e-arc in exchange for an honest review. Also, got a finished copy for Christmas from my mom!!

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis:

“Ever since Margot was born, it’s been just her and her mother, struggling to get along. But that’s not enough for Margot. She wants family. She wants a past. And she may have just found the answer: A photograph, pointing her to a town called Phalene. Only, when Margot gets there, it’s not what she bargained for.

As soon as they see her face, everyone in town knows who Margot belongs to. It’s unmistakable–she’s a Nielsen. And when a mysterious girl who could be Margot’s twin is pulled from a fire, Margot realizes that her mother left Phalene for a reason. But was it to hide her past? Or was it to protect Margot from what’s still there? 

The only thing Margot knows for sure is there’s poison in their family tree, and their roots are dug so deeply into Phalene that now that she’s there, she might never escape.”

Opening Sentence: “flick and catch of the lighter, fire blooming between my fingers.”

Musings:

This is a book that barrels you to the end wondering what’s going to happen? What’s going on? What happened back then? And all these questions are a good thing. Cause, you may wait for the answers and when they get there it’s an experience.

That’s what ‘Burn Our Bodies Down’ is, an experience.

What I Loved:

The Pain. It’s been a while since a book reminded me of my relationship with my grandmother. The gas lighting and the want to be accepted but knowing you never will. Much of this was painful for me. Not everyone ends up with good family and knowing you deserve to thrive in spite of it is an important thing.

The Curiosity. This book has you asking questions from start to finish and in a good way. More answers you get the more questions and you feel exactly as Margot must’ve felt.

The ending. Now this is a book with an ending. That whole time my eyes went bigger and bigger and my mouth dropped lower and lower. It’s a damn hell of a fantastic ending.

It’s creepy. This book unsettles in subtle ways. It makes you feel safe and then it takes it away a little and then a little more. It’s so well written.

The atmosphere. It’s dry and dusty and full of corn that’s not growing well. The way the world is written is so well done. You can feel how small and yet how vast everything is.

All in all:

This is a fantastic horror novel. It’s completely different from ‘Wilder Girls’ and it’s so good in its own unique way. It’s a must read for horror lovers.

Wilder Girls by Rory Power: A Review

Wilder Girls by Rory Power

My Rating: 5 stars!

Cover Rating: 10/10 this cover is GORGEOUS! The second I saw this cover I had to own this book and I knew nothing about it till I got it. And now it’s one of my absolute favorites.

Publisher: Delacorte Publishing

Publish Date: July 9th, 2019

Number of Pages: 357

Received: won a signed hardcover in a giveaway!

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis:

“It’s been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty’s life out from under her.

It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don’t dare wander outside the school’s fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything. 

But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there’s more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.”

Opening Sentence: “Something.”

Musings:

I want thing book to become a movie so bad! Or better yet, an animated tv show. It would be so creepy and gorgeous and so good! The imagery in this book is incredible. I couldn’t get enough of it. The story immediately sucked me in and I read all of it in one day.

Things I Loved:

Genuinely horrific. This book has some genuinely awful things that happen within it. Some of it feels worse then a death. The mangled girls that continue to get more and more mangled. Becoming one with nature in the most gruesome of ways.

The Government aspects. The government in this book like in real life is hiding this disease from the world. Cover ups and pretending to care about the girls on the island but not actually caring at all. It’s a terrible truth of this novel. Yet it sucked me in all the more.

How I don’t want to say to much. I want to say everything and nothing about this book all at once because I want all of you reading to pick this book up and see for yourself how awesome it is.

The writing is beautiful. I love the writing. The horrific descriptions. The tragedy’s. How real each girl feels. How different their perspectives feel. It’s such a beautifully written story. I could never say that enough.

The romance has the same energy the whole book has. I want to say so much about this, but I know I’ll end up spoiling it. God just loved it. That’s all I’ll say. If you know what I mean please leave a comment. I’d love to talk about this.

All in All:

I adore this book. I can’t recommend it enough. It is just amazing.

Victor and Nora: A Gotham Love Story… My Review

Victor and Nora: A Love Story by Lauren Myracle and Illustrated by Isaac Goodhart

My Rating: 4 stars!

Cover Rating: 10/10 it’s Gorgeous! It perfectly shows the essence of the story. It’s just so beautiful to look at.

Publisher: DC Comics

Publish Date: November 3rd, 2020

Number of Pages: 200

Received: Netgalley provided an e-arc in exchange for an honest review.

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Lauren Myracle (ttyl, ttfn) and artist Isaac Goodhart (Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale) reunite in this gorgeous YA story about living life to the fullest, and how far one will go for love.

Seventeen-year-old Victor Fries has a cold heart. After his brother died in a tragic house fire for which Victor feels responsible, his parents have isolated themselves, and Victor has dedicated his whole life to one thing: science.

Nora Faria is full of life. She is suffering from an incurable illness that will slowly consume her, so she’s decided to live her last days to the fullest at her summer home outside of Gotham City until her birthday. On that day, she plans to take her own life.

When Victor and Nora happen to meet at the cemetery outside of town, they are astonished to find the connection they have each been missing in their lives. Their summer quickly spirals into a beautiful romance, and Victor’s cold heart begins to thaw, allowing him to enjoy life just a little more. But when Victor learns of Nora’s illness, he’s driven to try to find a solution to keep from losing another person he loves…by any means necessary.

Victor & Nora: A Gotham Love Story is a tragic tale about living life to the fullest and what it truly means to love…and to let go.

Opening Sentence: “You ever catch this many, Otto?”

Musings:

This comic was really cute. It had beautiful art work and a sad and blooming story and I wanted to know more after it ended.

What I loved:

Victor. He reminds me so much of my boyfriend while also being completely different. The intelligence. The want for a future that is totally different from the way things are now. The want to be right and the way Victor cares for Nora. It endeared me to Victor because of those qualities that feel familiar to me. Even while understanding there’s many things that made him flawed. He felt real and three dimensional and I loved that.

Nora. She was super sweet and full of life. That’s the biggest thread in this story. Nora is dealing with an unimaginable fate. Death in her face every single day. She continually chooses to cling to life and I loved to see it.

The clear DC elements. This felt like a clear DC story. Victor being so deeply focused in science and Nora with her illness giving her episodes that are purely fantastical. It made for a really fun read!

All in all:

I really loved this comic. I don’t want to spoil any of it. It’s really beautifully done and at times humorous and heartfelt. It’s very much worth the read.

Olive: By the Light of the Full Moon: A Review

Olive: By the Light of the Full Moon: Script by Vero Cazot & art by Lucy Mazel

My Rating: 5 stars!

Cover Rating: 10/10 this is beautiful! I love everything about it. When I saw this cover I knew I had to pick up this comic!

Publisher: Europe Comics

Publish Date: July 15th 2020

Number of Pages: 58

Received: Netgalley provided an e-arc in exchange for an honest review.

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis: Olive, age 17, has a rich and vivid inner life. She has created an imaginary world that she’s able to visit whenever she chooses. But her daily life on earth is shaken up by the arrival of a new roommate at boarding school, who won’t leave Olive alone. And even more upsetting: a mysterious spaceman makes a surprise appearance in her imaginary world! A coming-of-age story that will take Olive far from her comfort zone, as she discovers unsuspected sides of herself and the world around her.

Opening Panel:

Musings:

This story felt so unique and beautiful to me. I’m in love with the art! I loved seeing this girls inner world as she sees it. The oddness of the rubber duck and the cool sciency blobs she used as beds and chairs. I got lost in all of that.

It is a really quick read. I got through it in less then 20 minutes. Yet, in that time I had so much fun in the world and I know there will be more to explore in future issues.

This comic is fun, short, and full of possibility. I am so excited to read more of it in the future!

Author of the humorous two-part series “Et toi, quand est-ce que tu t’y mets?”, she continued her journey with two graphic novels: “Les petites distances” and “Betty Boob,” which won numerous awards including the FNAC BD prize in 2018 and a selection at the Eisner Awards in 2019.

Flame in the Mist: A Review

Flame in the Mist by Reneé Ahdieh

My Rating: 4 stars!

Cover Rating: 8/10 I’ve always loved this cover! The Phoenix is beautiful. I was immediately drawn to this book because of this gorgeous cover.

Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons

Publish Date: May 16th, 2017

Number of Pages: 392 pages

Received: A bookish wish fairy granted me this lovely book!

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis: “The daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has long known her place—she may be an accomplished alchemist, whose cunning rivals that of her brother Kenshin, but because she is not a boy, her future has always been out of her hands. At just seventeen years old, Mariko is promised to Minamoto Raiden, the son of the emperor’s favorite consort—a political marriage that will elevate her family’s standing. But en route to the imperial city of Inako, Mariko narrowly escapes a bloody ambush by a dangerous gang of bandits known as the Black Clan, who she learns has been hired to kill her before she reaches the palace.
Dressed as a peasant boy, Mariko sets out to infiltrate the Black Clan and track down those responsible for the target on her back. Once she’s within their ranks, though, Mariko finds for the first time she’s appreciated for her intellect and abilities. She even finds herself falling in love—a love that will force her to question everything she’s ever known about her family, her purpose, and her deepest desires.”

Opening Sentence:In the beginning, there were two suns and two moons.”

Musings:

I had a great time reading this book and I’ll love to one day get my hands on book two! It was a wonderful Mulan retelling with a heroine I would never pick a fight with. This book left me wanting so much more.

What I Loved:

The increasing intensity as the book went on. I love a book that smolders and starts catching momentum. The beginning was fun, but as more started happening things spiced up and I couldn’t get enough!

That I’m not sure if I like Kenshin. Sometimes family aren’t always the best people and as some strange things happen with Kenshin I found myself disliking him and thats not necessarily a bad thing. What I don’t like about him intrigued me and I’m not going to spoil it, but what happened made my jaw drop.

At times it made me laugh. I love lighthearted moments in a story and this one had several. Put a smile on my face and joy in my heart. Especially the moment we meet Ōkami. That moment was so great. Had me screaming yes on the inside.

Ōkami. I really enjoyed his character and the banter he had with Mariko. There was such a fun tension between the two from the beginning even as he believed she was a boy. Also, the way he fights is so cool!

The encampment. I rarely have an appreciation for place, but there was something deadly magical about the encampment. The surroundings. Even the flavor of it. I really enjoyed it.

All in all:

This is a really fun retelling that is full of exciting fights, a growing in intensity kind of love, and a story that gets better as it goes along. If you haven’t already check this book out! It’s a book you won’t regret reading.

Little Creeping Things: A Review

Little Creeping Things by Chelsea Ichaso

My Rating: 4 stars!

Cover Rating: 5/10 the doll is a huge part of the story and it’s creepy, but I think they could have done a better job. To me it’s just a typical “spooky” cover and it’s nice, but it doesn’t wow me or draw me in very much on its own.

Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire

Publish Date: June 2nd, 2020

Number of Pages: 352

Received: Netgalley provided an e-arc in exchange for an honest review

Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis:

A compulsively readable debut with a narrator who can’t be trusted, perfect for fans of Natasha Preston. She never meant to hurt anyone…

When she was a child, Cassidy Pratt accidentally started a fire that killed her neighbor. At least, that’s what she’s been told. She can’t remember anything from that day. She’s pretty sure she didn’t mean to do it. She’s a victim too. But her town’s bullies, particularly the cruel and beautiful Melody Davenport, have never let her live it down. In Melody’s eyes, Cassidy is a murderer and always will be.

And then Melody goes missing, and Cassidy think she may have information about what happened. She knows she should go to the cops, but…she recently joked about how much she’d like to get rid of Melody. She even planned out the perfect way to do it. And then she gets a chilling text from an unknown number: I’m so glad we’re in this together.

Now it’s up to Cassidy to figure out what’s really going on, before the truth behind Melody’s disappearance sets the whole town ablaze.”

Opening Sentence: “ “Kill it, Cass!” Tina Robbins yells over the pulsing music.”

Musings:

I enjoyed this book. Parts of it were slow and it took a while for me to be super into it, but I liked it all the same. It was a fun read.

What I enjoyed:

The creepy descriptions. One of the creepiest parts of the book are how the main character Cassidy sees things sometimes. People turn into dolls with big blue eyes in her mind and it’s an unsettling part that peppers throughout the novel.

The twists. I should have expected, but did not expect the ending. The signs were there and I got distracted and ended up delightfully surprised at the end. Made the book more interesting.

The paranoia. I liked how mistrustful Cassidy was. It did make things interesting and with someone threatening her it kept me on edge a bit.

All in all

I enjoyed Little Creeping things. It’s a fun little thriller that gets better as it goes and it’s a fun read.

Monstress Volume 3: A Review

Monstress Volume 3 by Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda

My Rating: 5 stars!!!

Cover Rating: 10/10 of course! The cover art for all of these are perfection! I love them! They make my jaw drop to the floor in awe!

Synopsis: Maika has spent most of her life learning how to fight, but how will she fare when the only way to save her life…is to make friends?

Opening Sentence: “Maika.” “Shut up, Tuya.”

Musings:

Every single review I write for another volume in this series is full of pure joy. That’s what reading Monstress is for me pure joy.

I am absolutely obsessed with each of these comics as I read them. Every single one is wonderful! The art absolutely incredible. The story amazing!

What I Loved:

Every single thing! At times it’s funny and at times it’s so intense I want to eat it all up. It is always beautiful! The story is amazing. The interludes of history are amazing! It’s all so amazing!

Professor Tam Tam! My heart every-time I get a history lesson from the adorable Professor Tam Tam! It overflows with joy even with the darkness of the history. The contrast of adorable and dark is something I can’t get enough of.

The epicness of this volume! There was a battle I couldn’t get enough of. It took me in and entranced me completely. It was phenomenal in every way.

The subtle betrayal aspect mixed with a bigger betrayal! I think I often get so into the art with these volumes that I don’t ever talk much about the story itself which is phenomenal! But the way the themes weave together so beautifully was wonderful! I’m so obsessed with these volumes.

I connect and care for all the characters! I love everyone that’s in this book. Good or evil they are so gloriously written and I just love everyone here. So damn good!

The cat race in general. I adore cats in general, but this hard-edge cat race is amazing in every way. They aren’t to be messed with. I can obsess about the cuteness all I want, but they are incredibly callous at times and they fight for their own whatever the cost. I have a huge sense of respect for them.

All in all:

I adore this series in every way. Each and every volume is incredible. I’ll never get enough of it.
