BOOK TAG: The Book Cake Tag

I bookmarked this tag after I saw it on Elaine Howlin's blog a million years ago. Here is her post. It seems like this post was created by Suddenly Lorena, but the link to the video no longer is live.

MINI REVIEWS: YA Books with Elections!

I studied political science in college and reading books that discuss politics is something I love I also love reading books and watching TV shows with heavy election plots.

BLOGTOBER DAY FIVE: Past Date ARC Mini Reviews

We've all been there. First you request "a few" ARCs, then you forget about them. Of course once that happens, the publisher goes ahead and approves them all. So, then you spend the next eternity trying to catch up on all of them, and slowly fall more and more behind. That's where I am currently,… Continue reading BLOGTOBER DAY FIVE: Past Date ARC Mini Reviews

READING CHALLENGE: ARC August TBRs

Hello we suck at TBRs, but WE ARE TRYING OKAY. Bree participated in this challenge last year (see her post here) and we tried to read ARCs in April (see our wrap up here).

BOOK REVIEW: The Only Plane in the Sky

The Only Plane In the Sky by Garrett M. Graff Publication Date: September 10, 2019 I rarely review nonfiction because it can be subjective based on interests and honestly I do not usually have a ton to say, except, "I learned a lot" or "this was good". But, I want to talk about The Only Plane… Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: The Only Plane in the Sky
