ARC REVIEW | The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner

ARC REVIEW | The Serpent Kin..

Thank you to Jeff Zentner and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. “Nothing makes you feel more naked than someone identifying a desire you never knew you possessed.” – Jeff Zentner. I have so many good things to say about this novel. It was breath taking and heartbreaking. I cried a lot of tears so make sure you have your tissue boxes on hand. This novel is a coming of age story about three friends in high school who are figuring out what they want to do with their lives. The three friends […]

ARC REVIEW | Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie

ARC REVIEW | Burning Glass b..

Review Thank you to Epic Reads and HarperCollins for providing me with an ARC for an honest review through the Early Readers Program. “I’m not a mirror. And I don’t break like glass.” –Kathryn Purdie Life has been hectic recently. This book took me longer than I would have liked to finish because school and work have been getting in the way of everything, which is why I’ve been absent recently. This book was exactly what I needed in the middle of reading so many contemporary novels. Burning Glass follows the story of a young woman named Sonya. Right from […]

A letter to my readers

A letter to my readers

Hey Bookwyrms, This post has been hard for me to write. I’ve been struggling with stress and anxiety for quite a while over this. I feel it is for the best, however. I am going to be taking a few steps back from my blog. I will still be here writing reviews but I need to give myself some breathing room. Trying to get a hold of ARCs and participate in so many blog tours and things of the like is killing me. Not literally, but you understand. I have been extremely busy this semester with school and two jobs […]

REVIEW | Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

REVIEW | Scarlet by Marissa ..

Review “She did not know that the wolf was a wicked sort of animal, and she was not afraid of him.” – Marissa Meyer IF YOU HAVE NOT READ CINDER I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU DO SO BEFORE READING THIS REVIEW Marissa Meyer is back with her second installment of The Lunar Chronicles! I’m really loving this series so far. Marissa has again exceeded my expectations with her retellings of fairytales that I have grown up reading. Just like with Cinder, Scarlet had elements of the original fairytale written into the story. Little Red Riding hood (with her red hood), the […]

REVIEW | Cinder by Marissa Meyer

REVIEW | Cinder by Marissa M..

Review “Even in the future the story beings with once upon a time.” – Marissa Meyer I have been wanting to pick up this novel for a while because I had seen a lot of bloggers and readers talking about it over the summer. I finally picked up a copy after finding a signed copy at my local indie bookstore. This book exceeded my expectations. Although I didn’t really have any to begin with so maybe that’s why. All I knew at the time I bought it was that it was a retelling of Cinderella. I love the idea of […]
