I loved this book very very much. This is definitely going to be in my top 5 of 2017.
RTC, hopefully in April but this has been a very hectic month so I don’t know.

This is a really cool and original novel. It’s obvious that the story isn’t over though so I’m pretty excited to read the second book.

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater

I loved this. I got so much more out of the story the second time around, this is defintely worth the read if you can handle the writing and the strange plot.

This book is amazing, I’m so glad I read it again because I’d actually forgotten so much that happened.

I love this duo and I cannot wait to read volume 2! I have been raving about this comic for the past 2 weeks and if you enjoy comics I urge you to pick this up. (disclaimer: I do not ship Spidey-pool)

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander 
& J. K. Rowling
Finished March 17, 2017 | Pages: ­128 | Rating: 5/5

Bless Newt Scamander’s cotton socks. I think it’s definitely safe to say that this is my favourite edition of the textbook so far. With the edition of the new creatures, the mentions of stuff from the film and Eddie Redmayne’s A+ narrating I found myself falling face-first right back into the world of Harry Potter.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales Volume 1 by Brian Michael Bendis
 Finished March 20, 2017 | Pages: ­112 | Rating: 3/5

I’m not sure how I feel about this yet. I really enjoyed Miles Morales as a character but some of his choices really didn’t resonate with me, I also feel pretty iffy about his friend, Ganke who Miles seems to really appreciate.

For more spoilery thoughts, click me!

This was a cute little story with awesome art, I cannot wait for the next installment.

RTC, hopefully in April.

The Bone Season chapter sampler (The Bone Season #1)

Mini Review of Chapter 1:

I really enjoyed this but bloody hell was it hard to get into. It took me 3 goes to get into this, and I only read chapter one. I honestly don’t know, had I been sent the entirety of the book, whether or not I would’ve made it even a quarter of the way through. Eventually, I had to get the audio because I couldn’t even get through the first few pages. My lack of enjoyment for this book was probably because I’m currently in some of the most stressful weeks of the term at school, and just don’t have the mind space for a new world or a 7 book series.

However, I will say this, I am intrigued and the ending of chapter 1 certainly turned my tail up. I will probably pick this book up in a year or two, when I have more time to devote to it and more of the books are out.

I tried to read this a few months ago and was loving it but didn’t have the time to invest in such a monumental and interesting book. But I saw it at the library the other day and figured I would listen to it and read along.

it was everything I wanted it to be and more, I am so glad I read it. If you are a fan of Hamilton you should probably pick this one up.
