Weekly Instagram Roundup

wriu Hey, party people! Okay... wait... pause: I won't say that again, I swear. Phew, that was painfully embarrassing even for me.

In honor of my Instagram account reaching 1k followers, after having taken a break and lost a massive amount of followers, I'm going to be doing some sort of giveaway to celebrate. A giveaway of what, exactly? Well... you shall have to wait to see in the coming weeks...

I've also decided to try something new with my blogging process: instead of simply posting reviews, I will be doing posts here and there for all my wonderful readers to get to know me. Part of this addition to my page will include 'weekly Instagram roundups' of my recent posts and I will eventually begin to include users which I am currently digging on. Which promises to be an all around blast, don't you think? It's such a lovely community out there, and here of course -- my fellow bookworms are all AMAZING, that I found it important for me to express how grateful I am that such a phenomenal community exists for readers.

SA Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen | Goodreads Rating: ★★★★☆ [4.09]
Notable Quote(s): "...it was unrealistic to expect to be constantly in the happiest place. In real life, you're lucky just to be always somewhere nearby."

Where To Find: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, Book Depository

Bloggers Speak: "...as expected from Dessen, Saint Anything is a pleasing read. Just not her best work. I like it, but I was underwhelmed with the story." -- Sue YA Hollywood's review

"Saint Anything is incredibly addictive and introduces moments that are both disturbing and heartfelt. Much like Dessen's past coming-of-age tales, she introduces characters that are flawed and situations that may mimic reality for various readers. The tone is a bit dark, but not as dark as some of her past novels. It's got the romance, the friendships, and the self-discovery/growth that we always crave from Dessen's books." -- Dayla, Book Addict 24-7's review



SA Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
| Goodreads Rating: ★★★★☆ [4.30] Notable Quote(s): “Some mistakes... just have greater consequences than others. But you don't have to let the result of one mistake be the thing that defines you. You, Clark, have the choice not to let that happen.” // “I will never, ever regret the things I've done. Because most days, all you have are places in your memory that you can go to.”

Where To Find: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, Book Depository

Bloggers Speak: "I can't say enough how much I fell for these characters that Moyes created, and I think that is why this story is sticking to my bones so long... The dynamic between Will and Clark was absolutely equal parts heartwarming and heartbreaking." -- Jaime, Fic Fare's review

"... if you don't want to have your heart torn from your chest and crushed into a tiny little pieces then don't pick up this book. I kept seeing people say "Now this is a book", and figured it was a lot of hype. NO, NO it wasn't just a lot of hype." - Angela, Goodreads User

! A Song of Ice and Fire (Series) by George R.R. Martin | Goodreads Rating: ★★★★☆
Notable Quote(s): "People often claim to hunger for truth, but seldom like the taste when it's served up." // "When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say."

Where To Find: Amazon, Barnes and Noble #1, B&N #2, Book Depository

Bloggers Speak: "Such a vivid world created filled with memorable characters. The twists you never see coming and the deceptions run deep. Don't trust anyone and don't get attached to anyone." -- Jenn, Goodreads User

"I loved this book so much, which feels a little weird to say because some parts are very brutal and this book is definitely dark and twisted, but you can't help but love those aspects. They are just so entertaining." -- Kassidy, Goodreads User

pisly P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han | Goodreads Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.26)
Notable Quote(s): “People come in and out of your life. For a time they are your world; they are everything. And then one day they’re not. There’s no telling how long you will have them near.” // “So much of love is chance. There's something scary and wonderful about that.”

Where To Find: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Book Depository, Target

Bloggers Speak: "Every time I read a new novel by Han, I am always assaulted by these strong emotions. In a way it reminds me of our quintessential home where I grew up. It simply hits me at the right spots. It makes me reminisce certain childhood memories. That is pure talent. I get nostalgic and pensive. It sounds sad, but it’s absolutely astonishing, very few books could incite those feelings from me." -- Sue, YA Hollywood's Review



th The Heir by Kiera Cass | Goodreads Rating: ★★★★☆ (4.02)
Notable Quote(s): “There are some things you don't learn about yourself until you let someone else into the most intimate places of your heart.” // “You can be brave and still be feminine. You can lead and still love flowers. Most importantly, you can be queen and still be a bride.” // “I kept thinking that I couldn't live my life for other people, that love was nothing but chains. And maybe it was, but so help me, I needed these chains.”

Where To Find: Amazon, Book Depository

Bloggers Speak: "I have no problem with female characters having an ego. Everyone can have one, right? You can be awesome, and I'll be cool with that. What I hate - what I can't stand, is a person who treats others like shit for no reason, and this beautiful princess named Eadlyn managed to get on my nerves every damn second of my read. Bratty, spoiled and immature doesn't begin to cover it." -- Yonaily, Goodreads User

"Eadlyn is so different than her mother, America, and although I actually loved America it was still refreshing having someone very different than the former main character. And it was also really nice to see the flip side of the Selection, like with a princess instead of a prince, it was really interesting. I really loved all the Schreave family moments, and getting to know Eadlyn's brothers." -- Nicolette, Goodreads User
