The Dark Artifices: Lord of Shadows review // intense fangirling

i’m an emotional wreck dear lord somebody help me.


Hello, people of the internet!

So, I mentioned in my monthly wrap-up that I bought Lord of Shadows  and was really excited to read it: well, I finally did. And it was just so good! It made me cry (a lot), made me laugh (not as much as crying, but still a lot), and it made me squeal (like, for almost every page).

I did not expect this from the book. Not that it’s a bad thing! It was great. I loved it. (Except the ending because oh my gods my heart is still damaged???) But there’s so much to talk about – I have a bunch of predictions and theories I’ll be sharing below, after my review. (Oh yeah, spoiler alert.)

Rediscovering old worlds (a.k.a. why you should re-read books)

guess who’s back from hiatus?? (um. it’s me.)


Hello, people of the internet!

Humans love familiarity. And re-reading books – going back to visit worlds that you love – fills you with warmth and fuzziness and nostalgia of all the jokes, thefts, and occasional murders that have taken place there.

But there’s a lot more reasons – reasons that I have conveniently put together in a list for you guys. You’re welcome, and hopefully you’ll be convinced by the end of this post that re-reading is good for you, and not a waste of time. 🙂

Things that people who dog-ear books would like to say to people who use bookmarks

Hello, bookworms of the internet!

I have a confession to make. I dog-ear my books. 

I know, I know. “ARIS HOW COULD YOU DO THIS YOU’RE HARMING THE POOR BOOKS OHM YG GODS????” Chill. It’s not a big deal! I’m pretty sure a lot of people dog ear books… right? Right?!

I’m pretty sure that there are lots of so-called bookmark users that secretly dog-ear their books but don’t let anyone see because they don’t want people to judge them. Don’t do that. Wear your dog-ears on your sleeve! (???)

To be completely honest, I find people who use bookworms really weird. Like, not in a bad way, just… how??? How the hell do you manage to manage your bookmarks???*

So here are some things that the usual dog-earer would like to ask a person who uses bookmarks. Not trying to dis any bookmark lovers, but it had to be said!

*I don’t think this sentence exactly makes sense… and I’m not sure if I care.

Monthly Wrap-Up for August!

I’ve never done a monthly recap before so let’s just see how this goes?? Bare with me, please.


Hello, people of the internet!

Oh my god my first wrap-up post I am so excited let’s do this.

August was a pretty busy month for me. I participated in the Scribbler’s Challenge (hosted by the amazing May), did a bunch of extra-curricular activities for school, read around six books… good enough, overall.

Anyway, let’s
