Ninth House

Author: Leigh Bardugo // Published: October 1, 2019

★★★

Galaxy “Alex” Stern is the most unlikely member of Yale’s freshman class. Raised in the Los Angeles hinterlands by a hippie mom, Alex dropped out of school early and into a world of shady drug dealer boyfriends, dead-end jobs, and much, much worse. By age twenty, in fact, she is the sole survivor of a horrific, unsolved multiple homicide. Some might say she’s thrown her life away. But at her hospital bed, Alex is offered a second chance: to attend one of the world’s most elite universities on a full ride. What’s the catch, and why her?

Still searching for answers to this herself, Alex arrives in New Haven tasked by her mysterious benefactors with monitoring the activities of Yale’s secret societies. These eight windowless “tombs” are well-known to be haunts of the future rich and powerful, from high-ranking politicos to Wall Street and Hollywood’s biggest players. But their occult activities are revealed to be more sinister and more extraordinary than any paranoid imagination might conceive.

Stacking the Shelves (1)

PicsArt_11-13-02.30.53

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme created by Tynga’s @ Tynga’s Reviews. Where we get to share our enthusiasm for books by sharing the books that we’ll be adding to our shelves (physical or digital). So that includes physical and digital purchases, review copies, gifts, borrows, and everything in between.

I’m a bit late to the party so I’ll be listing the books I got in the last two months, and follow up from there.

A Game of Booksathon TBR

My #AGameofBooksathon TBR is here!

This readathon (like many others) has been in my head for some time now. I’ve never watched Game of Thrones but I’ve always wanted to read the books. So I created a GoT themed readathon. There is a group book which will be A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’ll be explaining more as I go along.

If you’re interested in joining the readathon you can find more info, here. As well as the sign up page, here.

The Raven’s Tale

Author: Cat Winters // Published: April 16, 2019

★★★

Seventeen-year-old Edgar Poe counts down the days until he can escape his foster family—the wealthy Allans of Richmond, Virginia. He hungers for his upcoming life as a student at the prestigious new university, almost as much as he longs to marry his beloved Elmira Royster. However, on the brink of his departure, all his plans go awry when a macabre Muse named Lenore appears to him. Muses are frightful creatures that lead Artists down a path of ruin and disgrace, and no respectable person could possibly understand or accept them. But Lenore steps out of the shadows with one request: “Let them see me!”

A Game of Booksathon Announcement

IMG_6100
Welcome to the A Game of Booksathon!

From the name you can probably tell that this readathon is A Game of Thrones themed. I haven’t watched the show before but I’ve been interested in reading the books for some time now. So I came up with this readathon!

The group book will be A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1) by George R. R. Martin. The entire series is a tome! but I’ve made it my personal goal to at least read book 1. Of course if you want to participate in the readathon without reading the group book that’s fine. The challenges are simply themed after the series but you can definitely read whatever books you want.

O.W.L.s Magical Readathon Wrap Up (2019)

O.W.L.s readathon has come to an end!

Wow that was some ride. This was my first time taking part in the O.W.L.s readathon, and it was amazing! I read so many books this month, but only some qualified for this readathon prompts.

My career of choice was Mind Medic since that’s the equivalent of Psychiatry in the real world, and that’s what I’m majoring in. I had a structured TBR but I felt really panicked following it so I quit that, and just ended up reading whatever I felt like.

For the career of Mind Medic there are 8 required exams. Without further delay, here’s my wrap up!

I was asked to make a tutorial on how to paint book edges. So, in today’s post I’ll be showing you how to do that!
