A Court of Silver Flames: Spoiler-Free Review + Spoiler Discussion

I have way, way too many feelings about this book. Some of them are SO good. Some of them are … not as good. Overall, this book exceeded my expectations but it also did something that drove me SO crazy I had to add a spoiler bit to the end. Don’t worry, you’ll be warned when that happens!

Unpopular Opinion? Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas Review + Rant

The front half of this is spoiler free! I warn you when it isn’t. That would be the moment that I start ranting. Please chat with me in the comments! I’m really just struggling about this book. You know I love me some SJM, but I’ve never been a Chaol fan and then … that ending!

A Court of Frost and Starlight Mini Review + Life Update

Somehow, I try to review a book that isn’t really a book. Also, I check in with where I’ve been and what’s going on now. I’m also going to be posting more to the blog, since there are a lot of videos I’ve failed to put up here because even just getting videos made has been a struggle. Grad school + working full time is hard, guys. I’m trying.

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.

Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas Review + Controversy Discussion

I finished this book the day it came out and … I was broken. In shock. All my emotions were SHATTERED. However, I pulled it together enough to create this review. I always wanted to discuss a bit of the controversy that cropped up around Empire of Storms, and why Sarah did what she did (in my opinion). It’s all spoiler free! Either way, I wish that my shock had kept me knocked out until the next book appeared because I don’t know how I’m going to live until the next one!

Depression + Anxiety = Re-Reading

So, today’s From the Notebook segment is a bit of real talk. It’s about one of my coping mechanisms for when I’m depressed and anxious, but why this doesn’t exactly mean that I’ll be reviewing a lot of stuff until I get some down time to myself. I also talk about some of my TV obsessions, though I will admit that by the time I got around to making this post, I finished Covert Affairs. Whoops? Enjoy, and hope y’all are doing well and happy.

5 Love Triangles that Don’t Suck

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!

May 2016 Wrap Up

Instead of a From the Notebook video, you get a wrap up a few days early! Even early, May was a MUCH better reading month to me than April. I’ve gone from 10/40 in the PopSugar Reading Challenge to 15/40 AND I’m almost halfway there in my Goodreads goal of reading 100 books this year. Go me!

Ruler of Books Tag

This week’s Betwixt content comes in the form of tags! This is my version of the Ruler of Books Tag, originally created by Ariel Bissett, and Michaela’s is coming later today. Once again, apologies for being super sick during filming, and I’m not quite on the mend yet anyways, but! That doesn’t change a thing about my devotion. 😛
