Bread and Butter #1 by Liz Mayorga
I know it’s been awhile and I apologize to those who check out my blog solely for the book reviews. Life has gotten pretty crazy and I haven’t been able to get ahead of my reviews like I’ve wanted to. Hopefully I should have a review up by next weekend.
Good news, though! I got through orientation for grad school and I have survived! The other people in my cohort all seem pretty cool. Classes start in a few days (scary!) and I’ve basically been told that once I get the okay from my clinical supervisor, I get to actually see clients for counseling as soon as possible (super scary!). I’m super nervous but also super excited as well! If the next two years go well, I’ll be a nationally certified counselor!
WARNING FOR THIS POST: There be possible spoilers below the cut.
This past week was like the week that wouldn’t end. Certain expectations of where I thought I’d be with my ever growing list of things to do before my last day of work and first day of grad school just didn’t happen leaving me in this weird combination of frustration and passiveness.
So usually I don’t do these type of things but I couldn’t resist!
This book tag was created by Read at Midnight.
I think this was the first, or one of the first, chapter books that I read all by myself when I was young. This is honestly one of the few books that I have read more than once for a non-school related reason.
Such a great book.
I think I just found out about this series when there were so many dystopian type books and shows that I just felt really overwhelmed and then the movies really didn’t make me want to read the books either.
I just really like Austen-themed/inspired stories especially when they’re referencing Pride and Prejudice. It’s honestly my guilty pleasure of book themes.
My mom has the first few books collecting dust in her room so it’s not even that I don’t have access to the books. It just really intimidates me for some reason. Probably also because these type of fantasy series always seem really slow to me.
This book was so refreshing and totally aware of the stereotypes found in many popular fantasy series without seeming too overbearing. I just couldn’t put it down. It’s great and I would recommend it to anyone!
Draco and Hermione from the Harry Potter series
I know, it’s weird and also really dysfunctional when you think about it but I’m a sucker for redemption stories and since the series has been ending all I’ve been reading are Harry Potter fanfics with these two. Also, for some reason, I really don’t have a Bookish OTP other than these two.
This book really drew me in from the start!
At one point, I would have said the Harry Potter series but honestly Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is not meeting my expectations. The only redeeming thing in this instance is that The Cursed Child was not written by J.K. Rowling so I might give her upcoming spinoff books another chance.
So I originally had to read this book for my AP US History class and just fell in love with Erik Larson’s writing style.
Um…nothing comes to mind unfortunately…maybe re-reading The Chronicles of Narnia series.
There’s so many books! I can’t decide! But I love beautiful covers like this and want to have a wall of pretty vintage looking books. I know, don’t judge a book by its cover but…IT’S SO PRETTY!!!
I don’t know…
I’m a sucker for Rainbow Rowell’s writing style it’s just the right amount of cute and awkward and romantic.
Um…the fourth book of the Heartstrikers series is the current book that I feel like I’ve been waiting on forever…even though the third book just came out a week ago but Rachel Aaron left it on such a cliffhanger!!!!
Want to join this book tag? Then I choose you!!! Leave a link in the comments if you decide to do this as well so I can check it out!
