[Book Tag] The Mystery Blogger Award


Huge thank you to Erica over at Erica Robyn Reads for nominating me for The Mystery Blogger Award! The original post can be found on Okoto Enigmas Blog. Okoto is a nineteen year old blogger who created this award because she is aware that there are so many amazing blogs out there not getting the recognition they deserve and she's trying to change that. She is hoping this "builds a link between bloggers in the blogosphere". I think it's a great idea, and I recommend checking out her website https://www.okotoenigmasblog.com/.

[Top Ten Tuesday] Books for Harry Potter Fans


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish. A prompt is given each week, and I hope to do it every week so I always have something going up on Tuesdays. We are back from hiatus! Which feels great. This week prompt we are to give book recommendations for a group of people or fans of a specific genre or book series. I chose Harry Potter because I understand the major book hangover Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows holds over you, and I feel like these books may help you get back into reading after reading such an amazing series.

[Book Review] Final Girls by Riley Sager



Ten years ago college student Quincy Carpenter went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the lone survivor in a horror movie style massacre. It was in that moment she became a Final Girl, a club of survivors of similar tragedies. Now, Quincy is doing well, she has a food blog that she loves running, her love of baking giving her a sense of purpose and normalcy. She has a great boyfriend, Jeff, a beautiful apartment, and a friend in Coop, the cop that saved her the night of the Pine Cottage massacre. That is until one of the other Final Girls is found dead in a bathtub and another arrives on Quincy's doorstep forcing her to relive the past, something she's buried deep inside of her. So deep she cannot remember what happened that night at Pine Cottage, or even say her attacker's name.

[Bookish List] Books I Want Adapted


There are so many times when I read a book I cannot help but think "This would be amazing on the big (or little) screen." So I decided I would share the handful of books I think would make amazing adaptations (whether that be movie or tv) or I just would love to see them played out visually. Some of these books are in talks of becoming movies, but I am keeping them on here because unfortunately book adaptations get cancelled all the time. Here we go!
