Motherhood: The Ugly Truth

Posted April 1, 2019 by Bee / 3 Comments

I know this is a book blog, but since being a mom is kind of a big part of my life, I thought I’d make a post about it every once in a while. Because some things you just need to share with your people. Though if you’re not at all interested in a post about motherhood, feel free to skip it! Though why did you click on the post then? The title pretty much says what it’s about, but anyway…  When you think of motherhood, especially the baby phase, a lot of people imagine living on a pink cloud cuddling your newborn and feeling the most extraordinary bond with your baby whom you love so much. Well, I’m here […]

The Disasters by M.K. England

Posted March 19, 2019 by Bee / 2 Comments
The Disasters by M.K. England

The Disasters is basically The Breakfast Club meets Guardians of the Galaxy and it was a very solidly fun book with a diverse cast and a queer romance lurking around the corner. Safe to say this book made my heart very happy because this was exactly what I needed to read. Did it blow my mind with its twist and turns? Maybe not, but not every book needs to be like that and this is one of those because I had so. much. fun. This book is about a group of washed out students that witness a terrorist group attack the elite Ellis Station Academy and are then framed for it. Nax, our MC, functions as their pilot and captain […]

Posted March 12, 2019 by Bee / 5 Comments

Glitter, confetti and cake for everyone, for the Bee is back! Phew, it certainly has been a while, hasn’t it? SO. MUCH. HAPPENED. I don’t even know where to start. Because I could make one gigantic post with everything in it, or I could divide and conquer. So to give myself a little extra work, I am making not one, but TWO POSTS. One here on Novel Ink, the other over at my other blog, Quite The Novel Idea. So go check that out Thursday to find out the bookish side of the past year. And now I present to you, Bee’s 2018 in pictures. When I went MIA last year, I was in the middle of moving in with […]

My Life With BPD & AvPD ~ #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

My Life With BPD & AvPD ~ #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth

As you may know, May is known as Mental Health Awareness Month. I wanted to make a post talking about that. More specifically, about my own mental health. I’ve always been open about it and have no trouble talking about it. People are also always free to ask me questions if they want to know anything. But in this post, I wanted to talk about something that happened to me this week. Something that left a big impression on me and will stay with me for the rest of my life. Let me sketch the situation for you. On Monday our neighbor was going to come by to check our toilet since it wasn’t flushing right. But we had a […]

ARC Review: A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews

ARC Review: A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G. Drews

I’ll admit I was scared to read this book. Not because of what it’s about, but because of who wrote it. Cait has been a dear friend of mine for a few years new and I’ve beta read for her before. So I was scared to read this book because what if I don’t like it? Or will people think I’m biased? But of course I had to read it. And I was careful to be just as critical with this book as I am with all others. And it still exceeded all expectations I could possibly have. A Thousand Perfect Notes is nothing short of excellent.  First of all, I have to start with a warning. This book gets […]

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Okay so this is going to be a kind of unpopular opinion but I wasn’t blown away by Obsidio. It’s a solid finale, don’t get me wrong, but this series deserved better to me. I won’t make this review very long because there are so many of them out there already and I want to keep it spoiler free for the whole series in case you haven’t started it yet. (Which you should, just FYI.) First off, I did still enjoy this! It was a good book. Just… not at the level I was expecting it to be. Illuminae blew my mind when I first read it and when Gemina came out and it was almost just as awesome, I […]
