Source: I bought the paperback edition of Midnight Sun.

A heartbreaking tale of love, loss and one nearly perfect summer - perfect for fans of The Fault In Our Stars and Everything, Everything.

It isn't until after nightfall that Katie's world opens up, when she takes her guitar to the local train station and plays for the people coming and going.

As they challenge each other to chase their dreams and fall for each other under the summer night sky, Katie and Charlie form a bond strong enough to change them - and everyone around them - forever.

BOOK REVIEW | Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

Title: Emergency Contact
Author: Mary H.K. Choi
Series? No
Pages: 394
Publication Date: March 27, 2018
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Source: I received an e-galley of Emergency Contact via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. :) Thank you!
For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesn’t actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, it’s seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she can’t wait to leave behind.

Sam’s stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a café and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when he’s a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him.

When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other.

Goodreads Chooses my May TBR!

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog! Today, I decided to do something a little different. A couple weeks ago, I was thinking about how I didn't know what I wanted to read after my first year of university ended. Lala from BookandLala on youtube has recently been doing videos where her husband, son, etc. chooses her TBR for the month. So, I decided to give that a spin and have goodreads choose my TBR!

*As I was planning this, a new video by Riley Marie did the same thing! Make sure to check out her video. :)

If you are new here or aren't aware, I do not do well with TBRs! I'm a mood reader, but hopefully I'll get to a couple of the books that goodreads suggests.

For this TBR, I'm going to goodreads and randomizing my want to read list. I'm going to pick the first book on the list, and then refresh. If a book comes up that is not yet released, or that I don't own and isn't at my local library, then I'll just choose the next one on the list that is easily available to me. Since I am a mood reader, I decided to pick seven books in the hopes that I will read two of them.

1) Uprooted by Naomi Novak

This book was all the rage in 2015. I was interested in it (I mean, it's a standalone fantasy!) but I was overwhelmed by all the hype surrounding it. Now that talk of this has died down, I'm looking forward to reading this one. 

2) Frostfire by Amanda Hocking
I was happy to see that this ended up being one of my picks! I actually checked this out from my local library a year or two ago during the summer, but realized it was connected to a broader series. So, I went back and read the Trylle series by Hocking instead. I don't remember much of the world (besides that there were trolls and my ship sailed), but I'm looking forward to getting back into it!

Where Have I Been??

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'm just going to give a recap over my last two weeks!


What I've Been Doing!


It's been a good two weeks since my last post, and I've missed everyone! But I have a really good reason - finals! My finals started on the 30th, and by the time you see this post, I'll be done with my first year of college! Basically, I've just been studying nonstop. The week after the 20th (my last post) and before the 30th (my finals) were jam-packed with papers and projects, so I didn't have the time to put posts up that I was happy with. Then finals came, and honestly, it's been a blur of anxiety and stress! I'm actually writing this before my finals are done, so I can't really tell you that I'm stress-free as of yet. But, my hardest finals are done with, and I'm not worried about my last one, so that's a plus. As this was published, I'll be taking my last final. Now that finals are (kind of) over, expect to see me a lot more active on here! I want to go back to posting at least three times a week, and at least one of those being a book review. 


What I've Read!

Just because I've had projects and finals galore doesn't mean I wasn't reading. Reading has been a stress-reliever these past couple weeks, and I've been able to read some really great books. When you saw me last, I had just put up my review for Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare. Since Lady Midnight I have read the following books!

  1.  Sanctuary by Caryn Lyx
  2. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
  3. Fireblood by Elly Blake
  4. Rebel by Amy Tintera
  5. Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman
  6. Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen
  7. Emergency Contact by Mary HK Choi
  8. Obsidio by Amy Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

 What I'm Currently Reading!



So I finished Obsidio on the 2nd (it's the 5th as I write this), and I'm in a funk with what to read next. I'm currently listening to the audiobook of Heart of Betrayal by Mary E. Pearson and I just started reading my ARC of Lizzie by Dawn Ius. I'm liking Heart of Betrayal, but there's just something about Lizzie that isn't grabbing my attention right now. 


 

What You'll See Next!


Before my impromptu disappearance, I had some posts that I was planning. I want to review the books above, whether that be a full review or some mini-reviews. The review you'll be seeing next is Emergency Contact by Mary HK Choi. Spoiler: I really liked it, and even made some of my own graphics after I finished it.  I haven't been watching a ton of movies, so there won't be movie reviews for a bit. However, I do plan on seeing Avengers: Infinity War this week, so we'll see if I care enough to write a review for that. There's going to be a ~fun~ post coming very soon, but I don't want to tell you to ruin the surprise. :)


That's all I have today! Sorry for my abrupt disappearance, but I'm now back with my regular programming!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

BOOK REVIEW | Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare

Title: Lady Midnight
Author: Cassandra Clare
Series? Yes, book 1 of the Dark Artifices Trilogy
Pages: 698
Publication Date: March 8, 2016  
Publisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books
Source: I got a hardcover edition of Lady Midnight from my local library.
In a kingdom by the sea…

In a secret world where half-angel warriors are sworn to fight demons, parabatai is a sacred word.

A parabatai is your partner in battle. A parabatai is your best friend. Parabatai can be everything to each other—but they can never fall in love.

Emma Carstairs is a warrior, a Shadowhunter, and the best in her generation. She lives for battle. Shoulder to shoulder with her parabatai, Julian Blackthorn, she patrols the streets of Los Angeles, where vampires party on the Sunset Strip, and faeries—the most powerful of supernatural creatures—teeter on the edge of open war with Shadowhunters. When the bodies of humans and faeries turn up murdered in the same way Emma’s parents were when she was a child, an uneasy alliance is formed. This is Emma’s chance for revenge—and Julian’s chance to get back his brother Mark, who is being held prisoner by the faerie Courts. All Emma, Mark, and Julian have to do is solve the murders within two weeks…and before the murderer targets them.

Their search takes Emma from sea caves full of sorcery to a dark lottery where death is dispensed. And each clue she unravels uncovers more secrets. What has Julian been hiding from her all these years? Why does Shadowhunter Law forbid parabatai to fall in love? Who really killed her parents—and can she bear to know the truth?

The darkly magical world of Shadowhunters has captured the imaginations of millions of readers across the globe. Join the adventure in Lady Midnight, the long-awaited first volume of a new trilogy from Cassandra Clare.

Waiting on Wednesday #74

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be participating in Waiting on Wednesday, and meme originally created by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Jill hasn't been active for a while, so Tressa @ Wishful Endings has adopted it! If you see posts by the name of "Can't Wait Wednesday," it's the same thing!

The book I'm looking forward to this week is The Way You Make Me Feel by Maurene Goo!
From the author of I Believe in a Thing Called Love, a laugh-out-loud story of love, new friendships, and one unique food truck.

Clara Shin lives for pranks and disruption. When she takes one joke too far, her dad sentences her to a summer working on his food truck, the KoBra, alongside her uptight classmate Rose Carver. Not the carefree summer Clara had imagined. But maybe Rose isn't so bad. Maybe the boy named Hamlet (yes, Hamlet) crushing on her is pretty cute. Maybe Clara actually feels invested in her dad’s business. What if taking this summer seriously means that Clara has to leave her old self behind?

With Maurene Goo's signature warmth and humor, The Way You Make Me Feel is a relatable story of falling in love and finding yourself in the places you’d never thought to look.

DISCUSSION | Authors Commenting on Reviews

Hi everyone! I'm Genni, and welcome back (or to!) my blog. Today I wanted to just write about something that always makes me feel a bit unsettled: authors commenting on reviews of their books. This hasn't happened too much for me, but it has occurred at least twice. While I do like knowing that the author has read my feedback, I also feel a bit guilty. 

I decided to write this post last weekend, when I was going through the reviews on my blog and slowly but surely putting them on goodreads. When I got to the "B" section, I realized that an author had commented on a review of their book. This book, which I'm not going to name, was okay and I gave it three stars. Though the author responded that my feedback helped them, I'm now looking back on it and just feeling a bit weird about the interaction. At the time of the comment, I was so excited that an author noticed me. But then, a weird sense of shame followed me around. Here are some quotes of my review:

"I felt as if the author tried to do a slow burning romance but then got impatient and decided they were in love instead."
 "...but I don't think it is anything special. When I look at all the fantasy books I have read, it just doesn't stand out." 
Obviously, I wasn't expecting the author to read my review, and my review shows that. These were my genuine thoughts on the book, but I began to feel a bit guilty for writing what I did. It went to the extent that when I read the sequel, and didn't like it as much, I didn't write a review for it in dread that the author would once again comment. By commenting on the review, I felt as if I was in the wrong by sharing my honest opinions.

Just under a year later, another author commented on my review of their book, which was once again, not a glowing review. I gave this book 2 out of 5 stars. Here are some of the things I said about the book:
"...really missed the mark for me. "
"I really didn't like the book for the most part."
"I couldn't connect with the characters, so I never was worried for them. The book wasn't thrilling for me, and I felt as if the plot became redundant."
It wasn't like I was being super harsh in my review, and my critiques were my honest opinion. My last line of my review was, "I won't be continuing on with the series." By the time the author had commented, two other bloggers had commented on the post. The author responded with, "I hope you guys give it a go. In books 2/3 Leon Grace and Freya face the virus as it 'evolves'." By the author commenting this, all of a sudden I thought my review was too harsh. The thought even popped into my head that maybe I should read the second book. But then I thought, "No! I didn't like the first book, so why would I continue with the series?" The author made me feel guilty for sharing my honest opinion about a book that I didn't enjoy.

What I've come to realize is this: I write my reviews for my readers and to spread the word, not for the authors to read them. While it is rewarding to see an author notice your work, it also instills some guilt when I leave a less than glowing review. In this case, ignorance in bliss. If an author reads my review, great. But I don't want to see them commenting on it. If I want an author to know I liked their book, I'll tweet them. I don't need, and don't appreciate, when authors try to guilt me into reading their other books or being more lenient with my rating. I was simply doing what was expected of me as a reviewer: being honest. 

Have any authors commented on your reviews of their books? How did you respond, and what did you think of it?

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

OND ELDR. BREATHE FIRE.

Raised to be a warrior, seventeen-year-old Eelyn fights alongside her Aska clansmen in an ancient rivalry against the Riki clan. Her life is brutal but simple: fight and survive. Until the day she sees the impossible on the battlefield—her brother, fighting with the enemy—the brother she watched die five years ago.

Faced with her brother's betrayal, she must survive the winter in the mountains with the Riki, in a village where every neighbor is an enemy, every battle scar possibly one she delivered. But when the Riki village is raided by a ruthless clan thought to be a legend, Eelyn is even more desperate to get back to her beloved family.

She is given no choice but to trust Fiske, her brother’s friend, who sees her as a threat. They must do the impossible: unite the clans to fight together, or risk being slaughtered one by one. Driven by a love for her clan and her growing love for Fiske, Eelyn must confront her own definition of loyalty and family while daring to put her faith in the people she’s spent her life hating.

Series? No
Pages: 432
Publication Date: April 3, 2018
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Source: I received an e-galley of Starry Eyes via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. :)
Ever since last year’s homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn’t hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets.

But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together.

What could go wrong?

With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely.

And as the two travel deeper into Northern California’s rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon’s rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?

BOOK REVIEW | Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Title: Geekarella
Author: Ashley Poston
Series? No
Pages: 320
Publication Date:
April 4, 2017
Publisher:
Quirk Books
Source:
I checked out a library copy of the hardcover edition from my local library!

Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic science-fiction series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck and her dad's old costume, Elle's determined to win - unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons - before he was famous. Now they're nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he has ever wanted, but Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake - until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. But when she disappears at midnight, will he ever be able to find her again?

Part-romance, part-love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.

Waiting on Wednesday #72

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be participating in Waiting on Wednesday, and meme originally created by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Jill hasn't been active for a while, so Tressa @ Wishful Endings has adopted it! If you see posts by the name of "Can't Wait Wednesday," it's the same thing!

The book I'm looking forward to this week is From Twinkle, With Love by Sandhya Menon!
Aspiring filmmaker and wallflower Twinkle Mehra has stories she wants to tell and universes she wants to explore, if only the world would listen. So when fellow film geek Sahil Roy approaches her to direct a movie for the upcoming Summer Festival, Twinkle is all over it. The chance to publicly showcase her voice as a director? Dream come true. The fact that it gets her closer to her longtime crush, Neil Roy—a.k.a. Sahil’s twin brother? Dream come true x 2.

When mystery man “N” begins emailing her, Twinkle is sure it’s Neil, finally ready to begin their happily-ever-after. The only slightly inconvenient problem is that, in the course of movie-making, she’s fallen madly in love with the irresistibly adorkable Sahil.

Twinkle soon realizes that resistance is futile: The romance she’s got is not the one she’s scripted. But will it be enough?

Told through the letters Twinkle writes to her favorite female filmmakers, From Twinkle, with Love navigates big truths about friendship, family, and the unexpected places love can find you.

My March Wrap Up!

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be looking back at my March reading and viewing!

I had a really busy month in terms of schoolwork, so my reading definitely took a backburner. I did read a lot, but mostly articles for school and textbooks, which I don't talk about here. Thankfully, I really enjoyed all the books I mentioned to read this month! But some of the projects for school required me to watch some movies, and I am also taking a film class, so I did end up watching a lot of films! 


Books
1) My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
I have wanted to read My Lady Jane since its conception, and I finally got around to reading it! I'm now highly anticipating the companion novel, My Plain Jane, that comes out later this year. I listened to the audiobook of this, which I think was the right way to go for me. The narration was excellent! I'm currently writing my review right now.


2) Nyxia: Unleashed by Scott Reingten
Nyxia: Unleashed is the sequel to one of my favorite books of last year, Nyxia. What's even more exciting for me was that Reingten is a local author! I haven't been able to go to any of his events yet due to school, but hopefully I'll be able to make it one day. Though I didn't like the second book as much as the second, I thought it was a great sequel overall, even if it did drag at times.

The book I'm looking forward to this week is On a Cold Dark Sea by Elizabeth Blackwell!

On April 15, 1912, three women climbed into Lifeboat 21 and watched in horror as the Titanic sank into the icy depths. They were strangers then…

Con artist Charlotte Digby lied her way through London and onto the Titanic. The disaster could be her chance at a new life—if she hides the truth about her past. Esme Harper, a wealthy American, mourns the end of a passionate affair and fears that everything beautiful is slipping from her grasp. And Anna Halversson, a Swedish farm girl in search of a fresh start in America, is tormented by the screams that ring out from the water. Is one of them calling her name?

Twenty years later, a sudden death brings the three women back together, forcing them to face the impossible choices they made, the inconceivable loss, and the secrets they have kept for far too long.

Mini Movie Reviews | Miss Stevens, Darkest Hour, 47 Meters Down

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be reviewing some movies! Miss Stevens, Darkest Hour, and 47 Meters Down could not be more different from each other. One is a contemporary drama about a drama competition, the other about Winston Churchill during WW2, and the last is about two sisters trapped 47 meters down with sharks circling them. 

Without further ado, here are my mini movie reviews!


Miss Stevens
Release Date: September 16, 2016
Run Time: 1 hour, 27 minutes
Genre: Drama
Rating: Not Rated

After watching Call Me By Your Name and loving it (review here!), I had to see more of Timothee Chalamet in a film. Luckily for me, Miss Stevens was available on Netflix. I decided to give it a go, and I'm glad that I did. Miss Stevens follows three high school teenagers and Lily Rabe, who plays the titular Miss Stevens. Stevens takes these three teenagers, Billy, Margot, and Sam, to a drama competition. The plot may not seem like much, but it sure does pack a punch. All the performances were solid, but Lily Rabe truly shines in this movie. She was what really made the movie great instead of good. While I loved seeing Chalamet on the screen again, and was pleasantly surprised seeing Lilli Reinhart, this is Rabe's film, and she owns it. I thought the portrayal of a late 20's teacher whose life isn't the dewy-eyed dream we all hoped for was raw and realistic. Plus, there's some hope dashed in there, so it' not a downer!

Though Miss Stevens is a great film, and the Lily Rabe's performance was stunning, I wasn't left thinking about it. I watched it, enjoyed it, and went on with my life. It didn't leave as much of an impact on me as I was hoping. 

With that, I give Miss Stevens an B+.

The book I'm looking forward to this week is Nightblood by Elly Blake!

Ruby's world has changed more than she ever could have imagined. She's in love with a powerful Frost King. She's the heir to the Fire Throne. And she may be a Nightblood--the spawn of a vengeful deity hellbent on releasing his wraithlike Minax from their prison. Once freed, these beasts will roam the earth, devouring every last person until he or she is nothing but an empty husk. But Ruby is able to control the Minax to a degree, and now she, her beloved Arcus, and her friend Kai must find a way to bring Frostbloods and Firebloods--sworn enemies--together to make a stand against a foe more deadly than any they've faced.

In this heart-pounding finale of Elly Blake's gorgeously written and action-packed Frostblood Saga, the fate of Frostbloods, Firebloods, and all of humanity is at stake.

Top Ten Tuesday | Books on my Spring TBR!

Hey everyone and welcome back (or to!) my blog! I'm Genni, and today I'll be participating in Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Until this 2018, The Broke and Bookish hosted the meme!

The topic of this week are books that are on our spring TBR. If you don't know, I'm a huge mood reader. Because of that, I have a lot of books that I'm interested in, but not necessarily a set list. So these 10 books are what I'll hopefully read, but I won't be surprised if I don't get to them.

Without further ado, here are 10 books that I may read this spring!
