I didn't know if I would like this book. I actually bought it a while ago, but it was only after watching the AMAZING TV show Little Fire Everywhere, that I was drawn back to the author again and her way of writing about people's lives and race and the psychology of how our past… Continue reading Book Recommendation/Review: “Everything I Never Told You” by Celeste Ng
I loved this book. I adored it! It was everything: emotional, sweet, funny, socially relevant, politically important, real and raw, hopeful and positive, beautiful, sad, mysterious, scary, informative, horrific... everything! It is a Middle-Grade/Young Adult fiction book. It's only 203 pages, I think. I read it on the night and finished it the next morning.… Continue reading Book Recommendation/Review: “Ghost Boys” by Jewell Parker Rhodes
I loved this book! Simple, review done! Joking aside, this book was unexpectedly great. I bought it because my favourite YouTuber (Kalyn Nicholson) always mentions it. To be honest, I feared it would be some wishy-washy nonsense. Oh, how I was wrong! It was wonderfully written and easy to read, firstly, which is unexpected from… Continue reading Book Review of Sacred Powers: This Book Has Changed Me!
Yesterday, I finally got to watch The Hate U Give, the new Black Lives Matter film. Earlier this year, I read the book by Angie Thomas and loved it and was moved by it as well. Let's just say that the film had my heart aching in every way. And I truly hope that as… Continue reading Thoughts on “The Hate U Give” Book & Film (Black History Inspired)
This book wasn't very unique, or life-changing (as the title says) to me, but I loved it all the same. It kind of felt like a long blog post, but I love blog posts that inspire thought and get you thinking about changing your life, which this book did for me. Here are some thoughts… Continue reading “Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck” Thoughts
This will be a short review, for this book isn't new and the author is well-known. It would be silly of me to tell you about this book because I'm sure you've all read it by now. Plus, this is actually the last John Green book that I've read; I've read all the others already.… Continue reading Book Review(ish): “The Fault in Our Stars” & Tahlia’s Memory
I just finished reading Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi this morning, and I had to post a review because of how excited I was about it before reading it. However, it wasn't all that I wanted it to be. Here's why... *MILD SPOILERS MAY BE IN THIS POST - BEWARE!* The Bad… Continue reading Book Review: Children of Blood and Bone
Under-developed characters: I felt that Mare Barrow (the main character) was very meh for me. She seemed bland and just an accessory for the story instead of a strong, developed, real character. I didn't care about her or her story. I didn't like her. And I just couldn't get into her person. In fact, I… Continue reading Why “Red Queen” Wasn’t All That
Today I watched the new Pirates of the Caribbean film and I have to say I loved it! So much so, I got out my notebook to take notes because it was inspiring me with new fantasy ideas! What I liked: The curses and spells are always so fascinating in these films. It was hilarious… Continue reading Pirates of the Caribbean Film Review

I'll review any awesome or inspiring books and films, too. And lastly, about any life stuff that I feel I should share with… Continue reading Hey!
