The First Nano-notes: Retellings (and many stars!)


Hey guys! As most of you know, I’ve been posting rather sporadically for the past couple of months. However, I most definitely did not stop reading, and as a result, I’m EXTREMELY behind on my reviews. Since many of the books I read at the time were for the COYER challenge, a lot of them were also review requests and ARCs, so it’s definitely important to me that I do review them. However, even if I reviewed a book every day, it would still take me ages to catch up. And thus, Nano-notes is born! I want to write mini reviews for a group of books in some kind of category, and keep it around 250 words! Today’s topic is….

Retellings: A Thousand Nights by E.K. Johnston, Sinful Cinderella by Anita Valle, Wires and Nerve by Marissa Meyer Continue reading

In which I create immense confusion!

Hey guys, it’s Amy! Yesterday was the beginning of the COYER challenge, and I’ve already finished my first book! I also decided to make a page listing all of the books I’ve read/reviewed for this COYER Challenge, and I’ll link to that in every review I do for these books. You can see that page here! Alright, let’s get started, shall we?

What is this book, and why is it buzzing?

Hey guys, it’s Amy! Since I am a book reviewer, I have access to ARCs from Netgalley. Which is… Basically the coolest thing ever. I can request them, and presto! There they are! (Well, I don’t always get them, because….) I have the worst rating ever. How can I say that? I’ve given zero feedback on the books I’ve gotten from Netgalley. (This is especially important for reviewers on Netgalley, because it makes you look good, so more publishers will let you have copies of things, and it’s an endless cycle of give and take goodness.) Now, I’m not intentionally scamming them! Most of the books I have from Netgalley (not even that many) I wasn’t able to find my copy of for the longest time (but I’ve got them figured out now), and two of them were Buzz Books! Whiiiiich is basically a book of excerpts of coming-up books. Which of course sound amazing. And Buzz Books count as books toward my 0% feedback score. So let’s just talk about them a bit, shall we?

This was so unexpectedly adorable and sweet and MY HEART.

Hey there! Or should I say… Neiiiiiiiiiiigh there! It’s Amy. ๐Ÿ™‚ My last requested review was for Oliver and Jumpy by Werner Stejskal. I’m excited about how many review requests I’ve gotten through so far, so I hope the streak continues! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Death, boy trouble, mystery, and the pineapple.

Pineapple? What? Noooooooo. How did that get there? (Up top if you got the How I Met Your Mother reference!)

“Helloooooooo? Anybody home? Nope? OKAY, I’M GOING TO POISON YOUR HOUSE.”

Sike! Or, well, not really, because that totally happened in this book. THIS IS A REVIEW, CAN YOU TELL? (It’s also Amy- you could probably figure that out too, by the amount of craziness in the FIRST TWENTY WORDS.)
