The Cruel Prince by Holly Black – Review

Welcome everyone to another book review! Today's review is of one of the most super-hyped book on Goodreads, The Cruel Prince by Holly Black. This was very unimpressive considering the amount of great reviews and five stars that it gets. I expected a lot more that what I got, but it was still a little fun.

Top Ten Tuesday – Standalone Books That Need a Sequel

Hello and welcome back to another Top Ten Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme originally created by The Broke and The Bookish, and is now hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. Today's topic is: Standalone Books That Need a Sequel Because I don't read that many standalone novels that have open endings, I'm going to do a mix of series and standalone novels that I think needed another book to properly wrap things up. Let's get started!

Announcement!

Hey guys! How are you all doing? I just wanted to say that I'm taking a short hiatus as I am currently overwhelmed with school. I should probably be back by next week, but don't worry if I'm not before then as I will probably be caught in the evil clutches of the school system. Keep reading, and I'll see you soon! Yours truly, JR

Tag Thursday – The Coffee Book Tag

Welcome back everyone to Tag Thursday. It's been a while since I did this (2 weeks, yikes!) and I'm glad to be doing this again. Tag Thursday is where I scour the internet and all things bookish to find interesting ‘quizzes’ to answer so that you get to know more about me and my blog. However, today's tag comes from the lovely Umairah @ Sereadipity (go check her out!) and is called The Coffee Book Tag. I am not a coffee drinker (the smell is is awful in my opinion) but I love the prompts, so let's jump right in!

Does My Head Look Big In This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah – Review

Welcome everybody! Today's book review is of Does My Head Look Big in This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah (Um I think they already got that in the title JR). This book gets a solid three stars. It is a YA Contemporary read and is also considered a diverse book because the main character is Muslim. I liked this book but there were some issues that made me give it three stars.

2019 Reading Challenges

Hi guys! How are you all doing today? I wanted to post about reading challenges that I'm taking part in this year. Last year, I joined the book blogging community quite late (December) so I didn't have a chance to take part in any challenges. However this year, I'm jumping in headfirst and I hope I complete all the prompts by the end of the year. The three challenges I'm taking part in are: Popsugar's 2019 Reading Challenge; Goodreads' 2019 Reading Challenge; & Mommy Mannegren's 2019 Reading Challenge.

Rough Justice by Lisa Scottoline | Camino Island by John Grisham – Mini Review

Hello darlings, how are ya'll doing today? I'm not having a migraine while trying to catch up on school and life having a great day if you're wondering 😉 I've never had a reading slump (I think) so I'm not sure if that's what I'm actually experiencing, but I'm having trouble reading books. All what I'm doing is skimming, and getting to the end because the story line seems meh. It's really boring. Maybe I've read too many thrillers/crime? I would love to know what you think and any recommendations you have for humor books/light reads. Anyway, during my reading slump that isn't a reading slump, I read a Rosato and Associates (not Rosato and DiNunzio, mind you, I love those) novel by Lisa Scottoline which grated on my nerves, honestly. I also listened to a John Grisham book, Camino Island and I also disliked that one with good reason. I don't feel like writing a whole review for each, so here you go: two mini ones.
