Swoon Worthy Saturday {08/15}

Hi everyone,

Saturday is a day for swooning. Swoon Worthy Saturday is a weekly meme where in we present a fictional boy who has swept us off our feet, given us butterflies, made our heart do acrobatics and driven us absolutely crazy! (Hosted by StayBookish)!

Ansel Elgort is a famous actor, that us as bookworms love, as a star in a YA movie! We loved him in The Fault in Our Stars and Divergent!

He just looks like someone who you’d want to sit down and chat with, I always enjoy those kinds of people!

Let me know who you are swooning this Saturday in the comments!

That’s basically it!

Alyssa Searches Search Terms #1

Hi everyone!

Today, I am writing my first installment in my new series “Alyssa Searches Search Terms”! I love reading Ashley’s version, so I had to create my own! Credits to her for the awesome idea!

Alyssa Searches Search Terms is a series where I will be going through my search terms (6 per post) used on my blog, and be reacting/responding to them. For a few, I may answer them correctly but for the others I will be kind of “sassy”. The search terms are not modified and are exactly as searched in the search box. This should be fun! Let’s get started!

  • book tower challenge questions

1.) A first book in a series.
2.) A second book in a different series.
3.) A book with blue on the cover.
4.) A book that’s title is 7 letters long. No more, no less.
5.) A book you’ve never read.
6.) A book with the sky on it.

8.) A classic.
9.) A non-fiction.

11.) A book that says “#1 New York Times Bestseller” on the front… yes these are very precise things you need to find.
12.) The smallest (smallest width and length, not just by pages) book on your shelf.
13.) The latest book you bought (if you bought more than one at once, just pick one of those at random).
14). A book that has a cover with a face on it.
15.) A spin-off book.

1. What is your dream career?

Well, many members of my family still don’t know I blog, so I guess blogging (does that count?)?

Hi everyone!

Today, I’m coming at you with a very requested post, which is my HCC Frenzy 2015 experience/recap!

The day started off with my mother and I heading to the subway station, en route to the Frenzy Presents event!

Once there, we sat in the little lobby area and filled out a very cute name tag!





After meeting all of the other bloggers, we took out spots around the meeting table and screen, to watch the presentation featuring the HCC Girls’ favourite books coming up in Fall/Winter of 2015!


Instead of talking about each and every book, I took pictures of all of the slides, which you can enter the title of and find out the summary on goodreads! If you have questions about a title or author, please comment down below and I will answer your comment shortly!












Those were all of the books they talked about! They all looked AMAZING and I plan on requesting several of the ARC versions for review!


As always, HCC was kind enough to give us a ton of books in our swag bags! The girls were nice enough to allow my mom to take one as well, as I took her with me! Sadly, I had a whole portion talking about the books I got, but I stupidly deleted it! RRRRRRR. Here is a list of the books I received:

  1. City Love
  2. Paperweight
  3. The Unquiet
  4. Ice and Fire
  5. A Step Toward Falling
  6. The Rest of Us Just Live Here

They also included a TON of cute swag, which I may or may not be giving away for hitting 100 followers… Stay tuned!

After the presentation, they allowed us to explore the meeting room and take pictures, so that’s what I did!


I took a picture with a giant cardboard cut out of The Rest of us Just Live Here, as that was probably the book I was most excited about!


They supplied us with a ton of yummy treats to eat, which was so nice of them!




They also had some interesting books on display, both YA, NA and Adult!


By the way, the view from their office is absolutely spectacular!

After the event was over, my Mother and I said our goodbyes, and I bought myself a Cotton Candy Frappuccino (typical.)!



Overall, the event was so much fun and I’m so happy I got to meet a lot of other awesome book lovers! Afterall, as Suman said “Book friends are the best friends.”

Thank you again to Harper Collins Canada and HCC Frenzy for inviting me to this amazing event! I’ll for sure be back again next year!

I hope that you guys enjoyed my Frenzy Presents 2015 Experience!

Good Night Book Owls!
