Cover Love: January 2017 YA Releases

Cover Love: January 2017 YA Releases

Cover Love in a new feature in 2017 here at Books for Thought. Being a graphic design myself, covers are something I notice when I first see a book and a lot of the time I’ll read books based off of their covers. This feature is aimed to showcase those covers that caught my eye so that you too can share the love I have of these covers. If there’s any themes you’d like to see in the future let me know in the comments! Hello lovelies! Cover Love is going to be a bi-monthly (I hope) feature here on my […]

ARC Review: Frostblood (Frostblood Saga #1)

ARC Review: Frostblood (Frostblood Saga #1)

I had high expectations for this book only because a lot of fantasies have been letting me down lately. A lot of them are blending together and aren’t as memorable as I want them to be. This book exceeded all my expectations and I loved every minute of it! Think along the lines of Throne of Glass mixed with Snow Like Ashes only not as disappointing or predictable. Sure some parts I totally saw coming but most of the book was a happy surprise. It’s a series where I’ll be waiting desperately for the next book. My favourite part about […]

2017 Blogging/Bookish Resolutions

Hello lovelies! I’m sure you’re all getting really tired of seeing blogging resolutions so please just hang on once more because this is the last new year’s type post I’ll be doing (hopefully). I don’t usually do resolutions because it’s hard to decide at the beginning of the year where I want to be at the end. Things change, stuff happens, and the resolutions fail. This year I’m trying to pick some that I know (with some effort) I can keep. 1. Read for myself: This is something we all say we do but in reality I read a lot […]

My Year in Books 2016

My Year in Books 2016

Hello lovelies. At the beginning of 2016 I started a few challenge and made some goals for myself. This is how I did and I’m pretty proud of myself for reading as much as I have. You can see my End of the Year Book Survey or check out my Top 16 Books of 2016. GoodReads I completed my goal of 90 books and went above and beyond! I honestly wasn’t expecting to read so much this year but I somehow read 43,236 pages! How incredible is that! However, this means I have higher standards for 2017. Once Upon a Book […]

Book Review: The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen #1)

Book Review: The Star-Touched Queen (The Star-Touched Queen #1)

I hate it when books with great concept end up being disappointing. Thought the writing was gorgeous, the actual plot and characterization was poorly executed. Pretty writing isn’t enough to make up for a bad story sadly or else this would have gotten a higher rating. Honestly I gave this book an extra star just for the writing alone which was probably bad of me. Oh well! I did appreciate all the diversity in this book as well but once again, it couldn’t make up for the bad plot. Side note: there was a super cool talking horse that I […]
