Dewey’s 24 hour readathon wrap up!

Hey guys! Sorry about not doing a post everyday! I’ve been really busy with alot of stuff.

As you should know, I recently participated in the “Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon”!

I only participated for a few hours, though, because I went to Indigo (typical.) to buy a few more books.

I finished half (about 200 pages) of “Since You’ve Been Gone” by Morgan Matson. I recieved an ARC of this from my dear friends at Simon and Schuster Canada. I will be putting up a review on May 5, the day before it  comes out, so look out for that!

That’s it for today!

Good Night Book Worms!

It is currently 10:15am on Saturday and so far so good. I’m almost 100 pages in and I LOVE it so far! No doubt it will be one of my favourite reads this year! It was also one of my most anticipated books for 2014!

Choosing Your Next Book!

Choosing your next book can be a very big challenge (and a very important one may I add). I go through a lot of steps to find my next book. Here they are!

1. Watching BookTube Videos and seeing what your favorite booktubers are loving!

2. Finding a genre you are very interested in reading at the moment.

3. Once finding a book you like search up book reviews on YouTube and go on Goodreads to see what everyone else has to say about it.

4. Choose if you want to buy the hardback or paperback version of the book (or if it is a series that you think you will really like; buy the boxset).

5. Go out and buy the book!

Those are my steps for finding your next read! If you find a book you like please recommend it to me in the comments!

Alyssa’s Reviews – Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Dorothy Must Die Book Review (SPOILER-FREE)

Hey guys!

I recently participated in the “Let’s Kill Dorothy” read along started by a whole bunch of amazing book tubers! I finished this book about 2 and a half weeks ago and absolutely loved it! I gave it a 5/5 star rating on goodreads!
Let’s get started with the review!

Synopsis (in my own words):
This book is about a girl named “Amy Gumm” and her adventures is OZ (sound familiar). She knows everything about OZ that any girl from Kansas would know but it’s not as she remembers it! They say Dorothy came back to OZ and ruined it with all of her dark magic!

Plot Line:
I thought this plot was so unique! I have never heard anything like it! The whole twist on how OZ is demolished and Amy is the “other” girl from Kansas was absolutely genius!

Characters:
I chose my 3 favorite characters.
Amy- I loved Amy and her personality. Sometimes she annoyed me with the decisions she made but most of them ended up helping her in the process.
Ollie- Ollie was probably my favorite character. He was so cute and his story made me tear up. I loved how Ollie came back in the ending (not a big spoiler, don’t worry). I’m so looking forward for more of Ollie’s character development in the next 2 books in the trilogy.
Indigo- Indigo was had a big attitude for such a “little” person (please don’t take that offensively). She was very harsh at the beginning but grew on Amy as they ventured.

Setting:
The setting reminded me of “Old” OZ but with a brand new twist! It was awesome!

Overall Rating: 5/5 stars

Hope you guys enjoyed this review! More book reviews are coming soon!
