(I have no idea what the heck that last one is, I just looked up “Halloween gifs” and it came up…

…uh…)

 

Weird pumpkin dude gifs aside, I’ve got a great book to review today, recommended by many friends to me and that (mostly) lived up to the hype! Enjoy!

Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment

Max (14), Fang (14), Iggy (14), Nudge (11), The Gasman (aka “Gazzy”, 8) and his little sister  Angel (6) are all hybrid experiment, consisting of 98% human genes, and 2% bird genes. Ever since they escaped The School, the place where they were created, they’ve been running for their lives, trying to survive while evading the Erasers, dangerous, wolflike hybrids determined to bring them back. But when a pack of Erasers kidnaps Angel, they must search much of the U.S., rescue her, and above all, avoid being seen by normal humans. Can they survive the dangerous trek, and get Angel back?

 

Like I said earlier, at least four or five of my friends read this previously, and they all LOVED (and I mean LOOOOVED) it. I would have read it sooner as well, if it hadn’t been on hold at the library for such an egregious amount of time. *fumes* Anyway, I thought it was a very creative, fun, and adventurous Book. I’ve already read book 2 (School’s Out-Forever) and I currently have book 3 (Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports) on hold. Pretty psyched! I recommend it to all of you! Yes, ALL OF YOU!

 

I hope you guys have a WONDERFUL Halloween, eat lots of candy, dress up in awesome costumes! I’ll definitely post some of mine…even though you’ve already seen it because I wore it to Comic-Con, but heck…

(Ah, what better way to express your emotions than Muppets gifs?)

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your summer while you still can! 😉

Book Review Tuesday (5/30/17)-The Girl who Drank the Moon

I’m so sorry that I didn’t get a review in last week-I was on a school trip and I forgot to let you guys know! So sorry.

But anyway, SUMMER’S HERE! For me, at least…

I hope you guys have had a great May/beginning of summer, and here is the last book review of May 2017. Hope you like it!

The Girl Who Drank the Moon

In a strict, well-guarded town called the Protectorate, the citizens must make a yearly sacrifice. That sacrifice  is to leave a baby out in the woods to satiate the needs of a witch.  What the citizens don’t know is that this witch, who goes by Xan, has no intentions of harming them. Instead, she saves the babies from starvation, gives them to a family in the neighboring town, and feeds them a bit of starlight. This year’s baby seems to be no different-no different, that is, until Xan accidentally feeds the baby moonlight, and thus bestowing upon her great power and magic. So, Xan has no choice but to raise her by herself, along with Glerk, a gentle swamp monster, and Fyrian, a tiny dragon who thinks he is far larger than he actually is. The girl, now Luna, is nearing her thirteenth birthday, when all of her pent-up magic will slowly reemerge. But Xan is now nowhere to be seen, and a man from the Protectorate is off to hunt down the witch. Luna is now on her own-can she save her loved ones before they are gone forever?

 

I liked this book a lot more than I thought I would. Last year, I read another of Kelly Barnhill’s books, Iron-Hearted Violet, and was disappointed in it (though the illustrations were halfway decent). But The Girl Who Drank the Moon was quite the opposite-I liked it a lot, and I devoured it in the course of a day…much like I do with most books these days.

Anyway, I hope you liked my book review, and see you guys in June!

 

Book Review Tuesday (2/28/17)-Rebels

Hello, everyone! Hope you’re enjoying your last day of February! (Thank god it isn’t a Leap Year…I HATE ‘EM. THAT’S THE WHOLE REASON THAT I HAD THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL ON MY BIRTHDAY. CURSE LEAP YEARS!!!)

ANYWAY…

Here is my promised review of the sequel to Randoms (see BRT, 2/14/17). It is JUST AS GOOD as book 1, which is seriously saying something, so yeah! Here you go!

Rebels

After returning to Earth after his last great adventure in space, Zeke Reynolds is transferred to a school in Boulder, Colorado. But, he’s got an unexpected hitchhiker-an artificial intelligence in his head by the name of “Smelly”. Pesky as he is, Smelly manages to help get Zeke back to space. Why? Zeke and his friends have another mission to complete. And this time, the Confederation of United Planets-and the lives of his friends-may hang in the balance.

LOVE. LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE. And did I mention love?

If you read Randoms (and this book, hopefully), I SINCERELY hope you enjoyed it.

On a completely random note, and for the sake of geekiness, I found a bunch of Star Wars memes on pinterest today that I’m just going to put on here for the heck of it. Ready?

(I should have posted the last one on Valentine’s Day!!! 😂)

Bye, everyone, and enjoy the last *precious* (not really, February’s not all that great, tbh) hours of February!

Merry Christmas 2016!!!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone! So far, I’ve had a great Christmas. I spent most of the day (after the ceremonial opening of the presents) on my chair reading. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. 💖

These are the gingerbread cookies I helped make on Christmas Eve. The red and green Christmas tree was eaten by Santa that night. 🎅🏼

PRESENTS!!!

IMG_3431.jpg

A basic (and blurry) overview of most of my presents. Among them include Kubo and the Two Strings, Pusheen sticky notes, Bloom County 2015-2016, The Ruby Key, a Rey bookmark, and VICTOR!!!!! IMG_3432.jpg

This is me prior to reading The Ruby Key, which I am SURE to review next week. Ever since I got Goodreads, this has been recommended to me. But unfortunately, it was unavailable literally EVERYWHERE, so I’ve waited the whole year to get this book. And now I’ve got it!!! And it’s so worth it! I like it a lot so far.

Sending warm wishes to all wherever you are. Merry Christmas, and hang in there- ONLY 6 DAYS TILL THE NEW YEAR!!!
