March Book Haul

So here is all the books I bought in the month of March, there was a whole lot! Though sadly, I've not gotten to read many, life as been so busy and crazy. My partner's family came to visit, work has been hard, my grandma and dad are really sick (I can't be with them because they live so far away) and now we are going to try to move cross country! Which would make me so happy, I hate it out here in Oklahoma, it sucks! I miss my home state so much.I could also see my family again! So wish us luck that it actually gets to happen! Let me know below if you have read any of these titles and what you thought of them.                                                     

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - Review

All Harry Potter wants is to get away from the Dursleys and go back to Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he's packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby - who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike. And strike it does. For in Harry's second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise, including an outrageously stuck-up new professor, Gilderoy Lockheart, a spirit named Moaning Myrtle who haunts the girls' bathroom, and the unwanted attentions of Ron Weasley's younger sister, Ginny. But each of these seem minor annoyances when the real trouble begins, and someone--or something--starts turning Hogwarts students to stone. Could it be Draco Malfoy, a more poisonous rival than ever? Could it possibly be Hagrid, whose mysterious past is finally told? Or could it be the one everyone at Hogwarts most suspects... Harry Potter himself. Publisher: Arthur A. Levine Books Number in

2 Mini Reviews (Second Nature & Revelation)

Fae had spent the entirety of her life training to protect her Queen. Jace had spent the majority of his life trying to kill all the Queens. In a world separated by realms and each realm ruled by a Queen, only the Queens are supposed to be masters of the elements: earth, wind, water, fire, light, dark. One hundred years ago though a different group of elementals rose up and challenged the Queens. While the conflict had been long and not without cost, the secondary elemental group eventually was defeated and banished. However, that doesn’t change the fact Fae, a fire elemental given a second chance, has trained her entire life to hunt and kill other elementals in the name of her Queen. When it's discovered the group that was banished is returning, Fae finds herself having no choice but to team up with the exiled earth elemental in hopes of stopping the rest. With their world threatened, Fae fights for a chance to live free of the life she was born to, and Jace, the earth elemental,

It's going to be awesome, I swear. If you want to follow me (you know you do), I will follow back anyone who has a bookish account.  Instagram So go on and just click on the link above, I don't bite.... much. As for the other thing I wanted to share, I've been wanting to start a book club, but I'm nervous to go it alone, so I'm looking for either one or two people to join with me. We can work on a name for the book club together, so it's something we all like. As for how it would work out, we could start like a goodreads group and every month we decide on a book, read it, do the goodreads thing and also post reviews to ours blogs, along with questions about the books that the others write. For example, I write 5 questions about the book as do the other(s) in the boo
