It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea...

Early Bird Special: The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout


I've seen a couple other bloggers do something like this like Jamie's Save the Date feature and Cuddlebuggery's Early Cuddles and decided that I wanted to do something similar to feature books that I've read well before their release date without doing a full review. These will be pretty brief and will just highlight some of the main things I loved about the book and then I will do a full review as the book gets closer to release. The first book I want to feature is:

Discussion Post: Binge Reading Series and Reviewing


Yesterday I posted a vlog review/discussion of the Covenant series which I binge-read about a week ago. I decided to do the vlog and talk about the whole series because I thought that reviewing each and every book would be repetitive. I post on average 3 reviews per week. So that would be almost two straight weeks of reviews of just one series. I thought that content might get boring. But I also didn't want to write a series review because I feel like it would have been epically long and you all would have laughed in my face and immediately clicked off the page upon seeing its ridiculous length. So I opted for the vlog. I had to film twice because the first time it was over twenty minutes. Yep. Fail. My husband actually had to sit on the other side of my computer with a stopwatch and time me, giving me signals on when I needed to wrap each book up. Isn't that sweet of him? :)

Top Ten Favorite Movies/TV Shows

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where we make lists of bookish things! 

This week is all about movies and TV shows! I don't actually watch a ton of TV or movies. Mostly because I'm always reading. But there are a few shows that I watch religiously and movies that I love. 

Movies:

The Avengers: They're just super badass. Although I hate that Loki is the bad guy. Since I freaking love him. But all these awesome super heroes in one epic movie? Awesomesauce.
