Novel Rewind is our version of a weekly wrap up post.  The three of us will be alternating weeks. We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post. Life Happenings I finished my finals this week, so I’m officially done with another semester of college. The past two weeks or so have been non-stop insanity, so I’m incredibly excited for a break. I mailed out my gifts for the #TBTBSanta and Coffee With Chrachel gift exchanges this week, and I really hope my people like them. I also received my #TBTBSanta present from the wonderful Amy (@inthecatacombs), and it literally could not have been more perfect. My friends and I are having our annual squad holiday party next […]

Winter Break TBR

Posted December 9, 2016 by Madalyn / 3 Comments

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of my sobs of joy, because I am officially done with another semester of college! This has by far been my most difficult semester yet, and I am more than elated to kiss it goodbye. Since I’m now done with finals, I have almost exactly a month off from school! I’m hoping to get a decent amount of reading done before the spring term begins in early January. I’m doing a fair amount of traveling, which could either be excellent or catastrophic for my reading. I can never really tell how it’s going to go. I’m hoping for the best! Without further ado, let’s get into the books. madalyn’s winter break tbr   Dangerous […]

Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY! || Bad Boy: Elliot Wake

Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY! || Bad Boy: Elliot Wake

So, I’m kind of a jumbled mess right now. I can’t really gather any complete, cohesive thought. Hell, I can’t do that with a book I just feel meh about. Okay, Erica, get to the point here. Alright, lovely humans, let’s do this. Bad Boy was a fantastic read that left me feeling many emotions. I love when a book allows you to feel every emotion possible and you still end up enjoying it to pieces. The beginning of this book was a little slow and confusing to me, but that is kind of my own fault. I haven’t read Black Iris so I was little confused at some the nods to that book. But, all in all, the whole […]

If I Fix You by Abigail Johnson

If I Fix You by Abigail Johnson

I’m going to be honest and say that I may have not read this book if it wasn’t recommended to me by a friend (Thanks, Jess!) Not because it’s not my type of read, it is, but because it may have been one of those books that slipped by without me knowing about it and honestly, that would have sucked. If I Fix You was such a great read that gave me all the emotions.  Jill’s story, at times, was heartbreaking.  I can’t imagine seeing what she did and then trying to pick up the pieces.  Not only was that something that could mess a person up, but what she learns later? Yeah, she’s such a strong person. Jill was […]

Novel Rewind is our version of a weekly wrap up post.  Each of us will be alternating weeks. We will be linking up to Stacking the Shelves and The Sunday Post. Life & What’s Happened I can’t believe it’s already December!  This year as seriously flown by.  Aside from Christmas shopping, putting up Christmas decorations, and working, I haven’t done much else.  I did get Thanksgiving off work and was able to spend it with my family which was really nice!

ARC Review: Bad Boy by Elliot Wake

ARC Review: Bad Boy by Elliot Wake

Anyone who has ever been subjected to my bookish ramblings in 2016 probably knows about my love for Black Iris by Elliot Wake (published as Leah Raeder). It was one of my first reads this year, and I still think about it CONSTANTLY. I also enjoyed Wake’s other novel, Cam Girl, so I had extremely high hopes for Bad Boy. I was lucky enough to receive an e-ARC of this book through Netgalley, and man, did I love every moment of reading it. Bad Boy follows vlogger Renard Grant, a trans man who has been documenting his transition through videos on his YouTube channel for five years. Though he is an Internet sensation by day, by night, he works as a member of […]

Waiting on Wednesday: Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. It’s a feature where we show off one of our most anticipated reads of the year. Where we tend to add more books to your never-ending TBR. madalyn’s waiting on… why i’m waiting I fell deeply in love with Laini Taylor’s writing after reading her Daughter of Smoke & Bone trilogy. Her prose is so beautiful that it makes my heart ache. She’s just one of those authors who has a gift for putting into words feelings that I’d never for the life of me be able to articulate. At this point, Taylor has become an auto-buy author for me, but this story in particular sounds like one I’m going to love! […]
