Despite having a 'To Do' list a mile long, I've decided I need some TLC, so of course I started a new book! After finishing One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus (Click link for review), I got a taste for YA. However, I didn't feel like anything too niche-y if that makes sense. I wanted something with substance and a contemporary feel, which brings me to Paper Girl, by Cindy R. Wilson.
My head must have been in the sand for the last while, because while I was aware of the casting rumors and grumblings, I had no idea it was coming out so soon! Then all of a sudden it was opening weekend, and I was both floored and thrilled! It was also quite fortuitous that I had recently watched Fantastic Beasts again too. (Cont)
This was hands-down the best YA book I've read in ages! I've never seen Pretty Little Liars, but I would say Gossip Girl is a more apt comparison, well if someone murdered Gossip Girl that is.

“And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.” -Dr. Suess (Movie Review)
After reading all sorts of doom and gloom the past month (Loved it BTW!), this book was a breath of fresh air!
Thanks for letting me take over your blog for the day, Reads & Reels! For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Christina “DZA” Marie, and I run the blog Dragons, Zombies & Aliens. In addition, I’m also a fantasy writer, as well as a YouTuber, knitter, and recent college survivor. On November 16th I have the start of my new graphic novel series Sovadron coming out, an epic fantasy based on a world inspired by post-colonial America. So to celebrate, Reads & Reels were kind enough to let me share my top five books and top five movies in the epic fantasy genre.
Hello November! I survived Blogtober and only missed 3 days!!! Not a complete success, but I'm proud of myself because posting every single day is HARD! I took a day off yesterday but I've read so many amazing books that I can't help but post again so soon lol. Today's is about a slow burning thriller with some of the most loathsome characters I have encountered in a while.
There was quite a lot of buzz about this book upon its release. Some good, some bad, but enough to make me very curious about it. Admittedly, I have never read anything by this author so maybe I was jumping into the deep end, but I needed to find out for myself because the premise was just too good to pass up.
The Halloween countdown begins, and I have another perfect book for you!
I haven't done one of these for a long time but this movie is perfect for this time of year, and I never tire of it!
Good morning my book loving friends! Time for a book tag!
I can't remember reading something so compelling and yet, so enraging at the same time. Perhaps, the first time I read Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, I was equally inspired. VOX was different though. It felt more personal, more visceral...
First book on my Fall TBR and it's a brilliant start! Here's my review of "Stalking Jack the Ripper".
Well, Fall doesn't start officially for a few more days, but that doesn't mean I'm not thinking about it...
