The Sims Book Tag | Book Tag Sunday

Book Tag- Sims

Hello all, and welcome to a new feature on my blog! It’s Book Tag Sunday, because I miss doing book tags so much. I also wanted a certain day to do tags, so here we go. Recently, I haven’t been blogging (partly due because I was on vacation in New York) or reading. Not going to lie, it’s mostly because I got obsessed with playing Sims 4 again. So, obviously I have to do the Sims Book Tag!

The tag was created by Hails Hearts Nyc on YouTube, and I’m hecka pumped to get this tag rolling. Continue reading

BLURB (GOODREADS)

For as long as she can remember, it’s been just Ariel and Dad. Ariel’s mom disappeared when she was a baby. Dad says home is wherever the two of them are, but Ariel is now seventeen and after years of new apartments, new schools, and new faces, all she wants is to put down some roots. Complicating things are Monica and Gabe, both of whom have stirred a different kind of desire.

Maya’s a teenager who’s run from an abusive mother right into the arms of an older man she thinks she can trust. But now she’s isolated with a baby on the way, and life’s getting more complicated than Maya ever could have imagined.

In bestselling author Ellen Hopkins’s deft hands, Ariel’s emotionally charged journey to find out the truth of who she really is balances beautifully with Maya’s story of loss and redemption. This is a memorable portrait of two young women trying to make sense of their lives and coming face to face with themselves—for both the last and the very first time. Continue reading

Future Classic Books | Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday 3_29

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @ThoughtsOnTomes. You find out more about T5W and the weekly topics on the Goodreads group here.

I think this week’s topic is great, because it lets us (the bookworms) dream of the future. That’s right, we’re discussing books that I believe will one day be considered a classic. Although, I am curious what actually classifies a book as a “classic”. Today, I’ll be going with the idea of books that I hope everyone reads in the future. All of the books on my list have impacted me in some way personally, or impacted someone I know. Continue reading

Throughout my time of talking about books on the internet, I’ve discovered that some people seem to have a stigma against the YA subsection. It’s terrible to have a stigma against any book without a valid reason, but today I want to discuss why I will always defend young adult books. Continue reading
