More. People. Need. To. Read. This. Book. It’s so good, y’all! It’s pretty chunky but it’s so worth the read. If you like character-driven stories that tackle serious topics and also highlight the healing power of travel, this is the book for you. It made me laugh, cry and gasp. Tess is a remarkable protagonist and Hartman is an excellent story teller.

This was one of the best books I read in 2019 (but didn’t quite break my top 10 list) and the green cover is so gorgeous!

*asexual brain not computing*

So I’ve decided to go with characters that I found pretty attractive and that would be both Camilla and Remy from The Belles. I mean, Camilla was designed to be beautiful but I still count her, and Remy’s grumpy personality made him endearing.

Best moment of 2019

I….can barely remember what happened last week. So I can’t quite recall what was the best moment but I’ve had a few great moments, like traveling to a cottage with friends for the first time in awhile and getting to do some exciting projects at work.

I didn’t like this graphic novel and part of that was because I found the protagonist to be really ridiculous, naive and annoying. The art is gorgeous, though.

This year, I’ve interacted with some awesome bookish people over this platform, and they’ve been tagged below!

Kill this love

First book in 2020

I finished Crooked Kingdom on the morning of January 1, 2020 so I would definitely say it’s the first book of the year. A full review will come but I’m kind of wishy-washy on this book (and the duology in general) because I love all of the characters except for Kaz, and he’s a, if not the, major player in the story so I gave the book a 3.5/5 (round up to 4) stars based solely on the plot and the other characters.


Decided to tag the wonderfully bookish folks I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with in 2019. Here’s to another great year of chatting with more!

  1. You’re the sweetest ever ! That you so much for tagging me ! I do need to read Tess of the Road, but I think it’s going to be a series? So I don’t want to read it until the series is done ha-ha! I’ll have to double check on that though.

    I’m excited to read your thoughts on Crooked Kingdom! I started it and then stopped for some reason? I do like it, but I found that the characters sometimes got on my nerves. I also don’t like multiple POV books, so it’s a bit of a challenge. i do want to finally finish it this year though!

    Great post, darlin’! Here’s to a great 2020!

    1. Not a problem! It was a delight chatting with you! I think Tess is going to be a series but the author has been pretty mum about it (which of course is KILLING ME). Tess does hold up as a stand alone if you want to read it as such! But I’m usually the same way about series; I’ll start when it’s all out :p

      Yeah, I felt weird after finishing Crooked Kingdom ‘cause I liked most of the characters but I didn’t care for Inej and I didn’t like Kaz and the last few chapters focused on them so it skewed my enjoyment :// going to try to get my thoughts together for a review!

      Cheers, here’s to another awesome year!

      1. Oh does it?! Okay … then maybe I will read it. i just didn’t want to get into a series that ends in like a cliffhanger or something ha-ha!

        I’m excited for your review! I love Inej but I’ve been having a hard time since i feel like a LARGE number of the chapters are LITERALLY the same scene but from different POVs over and over again … which frustrates me ha-ha. I actually like Kaz, but I totally get why he’d rub people off the wrong way ha-ha!

        And here’s to a great 2020! ❤

      2. Do it!! I just feel like it went under the radar and I need to evangelize about it all the time!

        That’s a really good point. I’m usually okay with multiple POVs if the amount of people I care about outweighs the ones I don’t! And honestly I think I liked Inej when she wasn’t interacting with Kaz? I think the common denominator is Kaz himself 😂 he’s not my cup of tea but that’s fine! I know I’m a minority in that regard :p

  2. This was such a fun tag – thank you so much for tagging me and Sha! It’s been great interacting with you as well this year. I’m with you – bye 2019!

    I felt the same way with Blackbird. Stunning stunning art, but wow did things go wrong, lol. Remy’s grumpy personality was a winner for sure.

    Your answers were so much fun to read. Hope 2020 is bright and great! 😊

    1. No problem! I’m excited to see you and Sha’s take on this tag!! Thank you both for being bookishly nerdy with me!

      Blackbird just broke my heart with how pretty it is but how lacklustre everything else was 😢 Yep, I love me some grumpy but loving characters!

      Thanks! Hope your 2020 is fantastic!

  3. Thanks so much for the tag! It’s been a delight interacting with you in 2019 too. Let’s hope 2020 is even more delightful.

    Great choice for the first book for 2020! I loved Crooked Kingdom and I’m sure I’ll love doing this tag.
