So many old ARCs… Oops?| Mini Reviews!

Designed by Freepik Hey guys! As you may know (if you've been reading my latest monthly TBRs), I have quite a few "backlist" ARCs that have been overdue for FAR too long. Thanks to the joy that is Netgalley (and Edelweiss). Therefore, I will preface this by saying that all of these books were kindly…

Time in a Bottle: An Unexpectedly Interesting Read!

I actually received this book from my mom's friend (whom I have known since I was little and therefore still call Pattycake)! Pat is a children's book author, and she is always making author-y friends (as you do) and somehow she came across this author! Therefore, I have a signed copy addressed to Pat, which…

Confessions of a Crazy Blogger: Books I Lied About

Yikes! Recently, I was asked a question by someone who I'm friends with on Goodreads. She said something along the lines of "Do you rate everything five stars?" Now, this is a completely valid question. I do rate a TON of books five stars. All the time. But the real problem is, I don't always…

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…

Just a few Christmastime announcements!

Hey guys, it's Amy! This is just sort of an announcement post- you'll see what I mean in just a minute. ๐Ÿ™‚ I found this post purely by accident, but the topics look fun, and I will probably have to participate in a few days! The Write On Review-a-Thon is a challenge hosted by Book…

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…

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…

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˜‰ Rating: 4/5 Stars Genre: Children's/Middle Grade Fiction Published: June 7th, 2015 I received…

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…
