September was a pretty dismal month for me, reading wise. It was also pretty dismal, life wise.I talk about where I was last week very briefly as well. HOWEVER, there is also some neat news for the coming videos (hint: scenery change!), which will also lead to (hopefully) a better schedule of joint videos for me and Michaela. ANYWAYS. Here’s this quick video!
Today’s review is spoiler free, but the rant is not. I manage to keep my review pretty even, but just … the ending of this book, guys. It touches on a serious pet peeve of mine too much NOT to talk about it. I love this series in general, and I think that Kresley Cole has done a fabulous job writing it but … I’m confused now. I may need to retract all these words when the next book comes out, but I also won’t be chomping at the bit to read it after this either.
Technically this was my Monday video, but I was really busy so I’m posting this late here. Please love me. Anyways, in honor of the release of Kresley Cole’s newest book, Arcana Rising, I wanted to talk about love triangles in YA that I actually didn’t hate. As you know, this is a very hard thing for me to admit, but it turns out that such love triangles DO exist in the world!

But who is on which side?

Not since Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi have I had such a huge love-hate relationship with a book. I mean, seriously. At times I was steaming mad or annoyed, but I kept reading because OHMAHGOD SO GOOD. I swear this review sits at three stars just because that’s my middle of the road rating and I don’t know what else to do because I cannot tell if I love or hate this book. Let’s try to figure this out together, shall we?
