Books to Documentaries: The Romanovs by Simon Sebag Montefiore

Hello friends! I’m trying out a new video editor because my old one broke down, AGAIN. Hope this works. Anyways, today’s review is a crazy one. This book was so much raunchier than I expected but I ended up finding an AWESOME documentary on YouTube that’s really worth it!

Unpopular Opinion? A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas Review + Discussion

Don’t worry guys, I’m nowhere near off the SJM bandwagon. I’m just saying that I had some plot and character issues with this book, which isn’t normal. The review itself is spoiler free, but there IS a spoiler section that I give you plenty of warning about! I’m really looking to engage with you guys, so give me a shout in the comments.

Review: Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham

Back again! With more nonfiction! I’m really sorry I can’t kick this but I hope you like it! I loved this book more than Princess Diarist, especially because it had more cohesion to it. It just wasn’t entirely what I expected, either…

Also, I really thought I’d fixed the video proportion problem but it still exported this way? I may need more technical expertise than I have with the new editor I’m using…

Review: The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher

I had such high hopes for this audiobook, but was genuinely disappointed. Carrie Fisher is a beautiful writer, but this book was not what I was expected at all.

Also, I’m using a new camera and apparently exported the video in the wrong size. Whoops. Don’t worry about it. Don’t watch my face. Just … enjoy I guess?

Top 5 Disappointing Books of 2016

Well. Here we are. There are my top 5 disappointing reads in 2016. I chose them based not on whether or not I think they were bad books, but rather that the expected enjoyment was far and away not what I got from the book in general. Enjoy, I guess?

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life Review & Rant Betwixt the Books Betwixt the Books

Hey guys. This is perhaps one of the saddest reviews I’ve ever done about something I so highly anticipated. I have very, very many thoughts about the revival and could only fit so many of them into this video. However. I have attempted to do the thing. Please chat me up in the comments for more!

Weekly Wrap Up 4/17/16

Hey guys! Sadly, there is neither a “what we read” section to this post nor a video. This is a text only wrap up post, due to the fact that Michaela and I are (technically) currently on hiatus. Michaela left for vacation a few days ago, and she is without time or internet to commit to things such as videos. BUT! There were still plenty of goodies this week that you don’t want to miss, so here we go!
