• October Wrap Up and November TBR

    Happy November! I hope you had a good October! Last month I read 11 books, and I’m hoping to hit 100 by the end of the year (I’m at 89 right now!). Before we get into the books, I also wanted to mention that I started watching Dark on Netflix, it’s like a German Stranger Things, and it’s really good, so if you’re looking for something to watch, I’d definitely recommend it!

The beginning was intriguing but I haven’t felt compelled to continue, though I may pick it up again in the future. Anyways, here are all the books I read this past month. The Outsiders by S.E.

  • We Are The Ants By Shaun David Hutchinson

    This review will contain spoilers towards the end. I gave We Are The Ants by Shaun David Hutchinson 5/5 stars. This is a stand alone realistic fiction novel full of emotions, aliens, and beautifully lyrical writing.
