ARC Review: Phoenix Flame by Sara Holland

Thank you so much to Bloomsbury YA and Netgalley for letting me read an e-ARC of Phoenix Flame by Sara Holland! I read Havenfall last year and I loved it, so I was really excited about reading the sequel/ending of the duology. Unfortunately, while I thought that Phoenix Flame was fine, I don’t think it quite lived up to the high standards that Havenfall set (which, let’s be real, happened with Sara Holland’s other duology too- I loved Everless but I didn’t like Evermore very much).

ARC Review: Havenfall by Sara Holland

Wow can y’all believe that we’re nearing the end of February already?! It’s so crazy AND we finally got our first snowfall of the season here in NC last week (which was super late, but definitely greatly appreciated!). I finally finished reading my digital ARC copy of Havenfall by Sara Holland (thank you so much to Bloomsbury YA and NetGalley for letting me read it early!) during some of my snow down time! The concept for the book was definitely really interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Weekend Reads- February 21-23

So I haven’t finished a book all week, which is kinda weird for me. I want to say that it’s because I’ve been busy, but the only other things I’ve done this week have been watch TV (I rediscovered my love for nature shows haha), go on a first date with this great guy from a dating app (and ok sure, that took up a pretty decent amount of time on Tuesday and then I have been texting him a good amount since then), go to a workout class on Wednesday night (and my instructor killed me, so my arms are still kinda jelly today, which sucks, because I’m going to another workout class at noon and I’m not sure how I’m going to do any of the pushups I’m sure Amanda is going to want us to do), and work (which let’s be real, takes up too much of my time anyway), which I guess, now that I write it all out, seems like a lot…

I’m doubling down this weekend though and I’m going to finish at least 2 books (hopefully 3) and these are the ones that I’ve decided to finish (and why I’m going to finish them):Read More »

What I’m reading right now- Feb 17

Happy mid February y’all! I feel like I’ve been posting a lot of reviews recently, but I haven’t posted any updates, so I wanted to give y’all an update of what I’m reading. If y’all have been around here for a while, you know I read a lot of different books at once- right now is no different. I’ve got an ebook from the library, an ebook on my kindle app, a netgalley earc, a physical arc in my bedroom, a paperback by my couch, and an audiobook for the car, so phew, lots going on!
