Oh boy oh boy. Hello everybody. Let’s start out with some life updates, shall we?
◦I moved back to school last Sunday (Aug 27). Wah, school! So I hope that explains my lack of blog posts. I’m the type of person who gets really overwhelmed by any sort of change, so right now I’m all over the place.
◦First day of classes was…my birthday (Aug 28). How awesome, thanks college! 😀 Haha but honestly I’m used to this, my birthday is always the first day of school. On the bright side, my friend bought me a baby cake, which I ate all of. No regrets.
◦ My kitties have grown exponentially and I’m horribly sad to not be able to be there to watch them grow anymore 😦
8/3 — The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, #4) ★★★★☆

*I’m including this because I read most of it in August*
~Reviews coming for the unlinked books semi-soon~
I’m doing what I did last month and choosing two books because THEY WERE BOTH REALLY GOOD OKAY.
The Raven King was the end of The Raven Cycle series so it will hold a special place in my heart forever, and Fire was just such a beautiful romantic fantasy, and I love the world in this series.
This was a very easy choice. Really didn’t care for this book, I can’t understand the hype around it!
◦Graceling Realm by Kristin Cashore
◦Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
◦Starbound by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
◦The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
So I have a funny story about Wonder Woman: Warbringer.
So I heard about this book coming out a bit later than everyone, and knew I really wanted to preorder it so I could have it the day it came out. So I went on Amazon, placed a preorder, and realized that there were signed versions! But they were all sold out! 😦 I was really bummed because I really wanted an autograph from Leigh Bardugo, but whatever. What could I do?
So, August 29th comes and I get the book, awesome. Thanks Amazon. Then later that day I get an email from Barnes and Noble… “Your book has shipped!”
…Huh? What book? I click the email… “Wonder Woman: Warbringer (Signed Edition)”
WHAAAA? WHEN THE HELL DID I DO THAT? I really have no clue. But I’m really glad I did, haha.
So end of the story, now I have two copies. But I’m actually happy with this turn of events because now I can put the signed one on a pedestal and never disturb it, and I will read the unsigned one 🙂 Woohoo!
So that’s it! I hope everyone had a great August, have an even better September!
