    19 Books I Want to Read in 2019

    To welcome the new year, here are nineteen books that I intend to read in 2019! These books are in no particular order, and I want to read most if not all of these books over the course of the year. 1. Brave New World I love dystopia, especially the classics and Brave New World is one of the big ones that I haven’t read yet. I have a paperback copy that a friend loaned me, but I also recently purchased a gorgeous edition from penguin as part of a set. Now that I have my own lovely hardcover I plan to finally read this book! 2. A Fair Maiden…

A stunning thriller that is difficult to put down, I ended up reading it in one sitting. The story follows Kyoko as she watches the descent of her childhood best friend, Saya, the only survivor of a mass suicide. Kyoko finds herself pulled deeper into the mysteries of a suicide cult as she attempts to save Saya. “How do you relate to yourself?” The scary part of this manga isn’t the gore, though it is very gorey. No, the real horror here is psychological. Saya and the other girls of…

    Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone!! I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday and that most have some time off from school or work to enjoy a little rest. Well I’m about to get called out this Christmas but I feel like I’ve been pretty terrible about reading and blogging this year.

It’ll be interesting to see how things went this year but I know that things aren’t looking too good fam. I spotted this adorable tag on Paper Fury, and…

    End of the Year 2018 Book Tag

    My goodness this year has flown by fast, we’re already almost halfway through December! I didn’t realize until I started seeing the end of the year book tags start rolling out, so I figured I should write one as well. I spotted this tag on Reader Voracious, Kaleena has a wonderful blog that you all should check out! ARE THERE ANY BOOKS YOU STARTED THIS YEAR THAT YOU NEED TO FINISH? There are quite a lot of books that I put back on my shelf, mostly due to reading slumps and library due dates. I got to around the halfway mark for these books and so I want to make…
