Losing It Review

Friday, August 22, 2014

Hello again! I have again been in hiding from here as I've been moving into my new apartment and getting reacquainted with college life. I can't believe how fast time flew by from the time I first began this blog. On Monday I will have officially started my senior year, and I can't quite tell if I'm excited to hurry up and get this whole graduating thing going or if the anxiousness and fear of what's supposed to come is keeping me at bay to slow things down and enjoy it a bit more. Currently, I'm leaning more towards completing everything and starting with another stage of my life!

But besides all that young adult drama, I have finished another book that fits, coincidentally, in a very appropriate genre- New Adult. I didn't plan that one out, I just sort of searched something that was on my to-read list off of Goodreads and hoped it would come out on my library's search engine as an ebook. And sure enough Losing It by Cora Cormack did. If you're still lost on the New Adult aspect like I was then let me clarify. This genre centers on the gap between Young Adult and Adult fiction, dealing with I want to say 20-year-olds would be going through- such as graduating university, finding jobs, moving away from home, going through friendships and dealing with those various or one-time relationships that get to you when you're just trying to figure things out. And that's pretty much all Losing It deals with.

The Queen of the Tearling Review

Wednesday, August 06, 2014

I have been gone for a while on here but if we're friends on Goodreads then you know I've been keeping up with my reading! I have been reviewing on there, maybe not as descriptively, but still it counts. But I had to come on here and write about this lovely book I just finished- The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen.

I'm sure many have probably been hearing about this book and the hype around it, but I definitely think its lives up to it, especially since I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads. I checked this book out of my library around the end of July and it's just been sitting on my table. Occasionally I would glance at it, but still shied away from picking it up. The hype, the lengthy pages and the beautiful cover seemed intimidating and daunting to me. But as soon as I picked it up (yesterday afternoon), it was a done deal. I can't even seem to recollect flying by the pages as I did, but that just means that it was that good!
