September 2016 Wrap Up (FTN)

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!

Review + Rant: Arcana Rising by Kresley Cole

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.

3 stars

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?
