Stranger Things 2 Book Tag

Stranger Things 2 Book Tag Top.png

Welcome to the Stranger Things book tag! If you have not watched season 2 of Stranger Things all the way to the end and still intend to, I highly recommend that you do not read past this point! There are spoilers galore! (But there is a tag for those who have watched season 1, and you can find it here!)

For those of you who have finished the 2nd season, and miss the setting and characters as much as I do, please read on! This tag was created by myself, Harker from The Hermit Librarian, Tris from Tris’ Nook, and Breeny from Breeny’s Books! And I’d like to thank the 3 of them one more time, because I could not have finished compiling this tag without them!

Stranger Things Book Tag (Take 2)

Stranger Things Book Tag 1B.png

I was tagged by Pore Over the Pages to do the Stranger Things Book Tag the first time in August of last year, and you can check my first completion of the tag here! So, you’re probably wondering why I’m doing the tag again, when no one else has tagged me to do it? Well, let me tell you! I finished watching season 2 of Stranger Things…well, just a day or two after the episodes were released, and then I was left wanting more. So I decided to reboot this tag with new graphics and to see if any of my choices for each category have changed! This tag was originally created by A Running Commentary, but when I clicked on the link to their page, it took me to an entirely different blog. So, I don’t know what happened to them. If any of you know, or if you are A Running Commentary, please let me know!

Monthly Wrap-Up (October 2017)

ezgif-4-bea5e63404Another month has gone by! And so quickly too. How does that happen? It must be because I really really love October and Halloween. Probably. Anyway, the past few weeks have been quite busy for me, and I’m actually surprised that I posted as often as I did. Haha. Sometimes I wonder how I do it! Also, as you may notice…I’m using the same GIFs that I used for the September wrap-up, and that’s because I love Halloween and I think that they’re so cute (and funny haha)!

Sasha Stone knows her place—first-chair clarinet, top of her class, and at the side of her oxford-wearing boyfriend. She’s worked her entire life to ensure that her path to Oberlin Conservatory as a star musician is perfectly paved.

But suddenly there’s a fork in the road, in the shape of Isaac Harver. Her body shifts toward him when he walks by, her skin misses his touch even though she’s never known it, and she relishes the smell of him—smoke, beer, and trouble—all the things she’s avoided to get where she is. Even worse, every time he’s near Sasha, her heart stops, literally. Why does he know her so well—too well—and she doesn’t know him at all?

The Life and Death Parade by Eliza Wass (Cover Reveal Blitz & Giveaway) [CLOSED]

COVER REVEAL.jpg

Today Eliza Wass and Rockstar Book Tours are revealing the cover for The Life and Death Parade, which releases June 26, 2018! Check out the gorgeous
cover and enter to win an ARC!

I had not heard about this book until I received an email about the cover reveal and giveaway that was happening, but I had heard of Eliza Wass’s other book (which was also published with Disney-Hyperion) The Cresswell Plot. While I missed out on requesting that book around the time that it came out last year, (and was quite jealous of the people who did get ARCs for that book, because they were delivered in a box full of earth! Isn’t that cool?!) I will definitely not be missing out on requesting, reading, and reviewing this upcoming release! The synopsis for The Life and Death Parade sounds quite interesting, and I was kind of already hooked when tarot was mentioned, because I absolutely love tarot and everything involving tarot. Read on to find out more about The Life and Death Parade!

Pulse by Danielle Koste (Cover Reveal & Giveaway)

I sadly only learned about this book when my reading schedule for January and February were already full! Sigh. Story of my life! I haven’t read any vampire books in a while (that I recall), because I’d binged too many some years back, haha. But despite this, I would definitely read this book, because it sounds different from all other vampire books that I’ve encountered (and because I’ve also been starting to miss vampire books a little). Keep reading to get a first look at this awesome-sounding book’s cover!
