No Sophomore Slump Here: On the Come Up

On the Come Up

On the Come Up

By: Angie Thomas

Grade: A

On the Come Up about an aspiring rapper named Bri- her start, her friends and her family- is Angie Thomas’ follow-up to the enormously successful The Hate U Give. I read that book thought it was fantastic and deserved all the hype so I was very much interested in seeing if Thomas could pull it off again.

And she very much does.

All the Best Deaths

All the Best of the Deaths

Okay, this is a bit morbid perhaps but I was thinking of it in regards to Strange the Dreamer and we’re so close to Halloween so All the Best of the Deaths. By the way this isn’t a good or bad thing some of these absolutely devastated me but they were so well done!

Also there’s some pretty famous deaths in here but just in case spoilers for: The Book Thief, Crooked Kingdom, Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Mockingjay, Strange the Dreamer, & The Hate U Give.

A Tag for Books & Booze!

the drunk book tag

Okay, I’ve been looking for end of summer tags for some reason. The Drunk Book Tag created on Youtube by Pages and Pens and Chelseadolling Reads and it might be a bit of stretch. But still I was thinking you know late night beach bonfires and lazy dinners with friends that go on and on because it doesn’t get dark until to late.

Yeah, like I said. It’s a stretch but still. Enjoy the Drunk Book Tag!

2017 Mid-Year Wrap-Up!

Hela Breaks the Hammer

Prediction for the end of the year: I will own an embarrassing amount of Hela merchandise!

I’m going to keep this round-up of the first part of 2017 super simple and try not to cry about the fact that we’re halfway through because while 2017 might be halfway over, at least entertainment wise, I think the fun stuff is still to come.

The Hate U Give

Author: Angie Thomas

Grade: A

It’s so rare that a book actually lives up to it’s hype for me these days. But this one totally did. Sixteen-year old Starr is the only witness to what happened the night her and her friend Khalil are pulled over by a cop and Khalil winds up dead in the street.
