The Pixar Tag!

It’s day 3 of the Book Blogging Extravaganza and today’s prompt was to do a tag!  Which is perfect because I absolutely love Pixar.
The Pixar Tag was created by Mishma over at Chasing Fairytales and it’s total perfection.  I feel like her GIF choices were part of the tag… so I’m leaving them. :]
Oh GOD! I went through a list (yes seriously) of all the Pixar movies ever made. Why? Because I’m old (23), I’ve seen them all, and my memory isn’t as great as it used to be.  Anyways, it comes down to a tie: Ratatouille (yessss), Finding Nemo (YAAASSS), and Inside Out (I CRIED).
Harry Potter! Guys, its our generations book, how can you not say Harry Potter? I will forever love it.
Okay, since I’m all about being honest and slaying certain fandoms (only on Mondays, I promise, sorry if you like the book).  I’m calling out Holly Black’s The Iron Trials because holy cash cow Batman all I saw was Harry Potter warning bells flashing before my eyes.  If I wanted to read Harry Potter again I will do just that.  
OH! oh! OH! I know! GUYS if you’ve read Falling Kingdoms, you are probably riding the same train as me when it comes to Magnus.  Oh Magnus *sighing forever*.  I definitely feel like he’s supposed to be a villain but I just… don’t… I want him and Cleo to be a thing and I want him to become good.  Why can’t it happen? Whyyyyyyy :'(.
One family I absolutely loved in literature? The Bennet sisters from Pride and Prejudice.  I just loved their kindred spirits, love, and dedication.
I have always love Clary Fairchild’s ability to create angelic runes in The Mortal Instruments so I have to go with that

Basically all of the Chronicles of Ixia by Maria V. Snyder.  There is so much traveling done that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of it all.  Yelena, Valek, Leif, Janco, etc. are ALWAYS going somewhere days away.
One of them is definitely Alec from The Mortal Instruments.  His character always drew me in and he was a perfect fit for Jace.
Indie author Laura Thalassa’s The Queen of All That Dies. Oh my god! If you have not read it GET ON THAT.  I freaking love this series.

So I’m not sure if it’s the most beautiful, but I really loved Celaena and Sam’s love in the Assassin’s Blade.  It just hit home so hard and gave me all the possible feels.  I also really loved Shatter Me‘s Juliette and Aaron love story.  I think it was the poetic writing style Mafi had that really drew me in.
Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas, Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi, and Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare.  Seriously all the feels EVER!
Tag, you’re it!

Happy Friday everybody!  Today is day 2 of the blogging extravaganza.  This is a super exciting month long (!) blogging extravaganza hosted by Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf! You can get alllll the details here.  Today is only the second day, so join if you haven’t already!

Today is World Kidney Day, so today’s prompt is perfect.  There aren’t many bookish things I would you give a kidney for? But these would make me consider it.

  • ARC of Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas
  • Amy Engel, author of The Book of Ivy, to write another book
  • Laura Thalassa to write ALL OF THE BOOKS EVER
  • Go to BookCon and get all the books ever
  • Be able to travel into any literary world and interact with it and the characters.

What do you guys think?  Is there anything you’d add?  I’m trying to finish my ARC from NetGalley tonight, then I’ll be moving onto Lady Midnight. :]

Get Up Offa That Slump Blogging Extravaganza! | Day One: Interview.. with me!

I’ve decided to jump on the train and participate in a super exciting month long (!) blogging extravaganza hosted by Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf! You can get alllll the details here.

I thought it’d be fun to get some new topics spurred on my blog and also see your guys’ posts!  So participate! Join the party! It starts now! :].  These posts will be on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Day One consists of me interviewing myself, so let’s get started!


Let’s start this easy.. how old are you?

I am the sweet age of 23.  Fun fact, I had to Google how old I was the other day because I genuinely did not know. #oldage #ohmygod

Did you go to college? 

Yes! I graduated in May 2015 from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science degree.  I studied Natural Resources – wildlife conservation, animal rehab, science, more science, science.  Yes, I went Ivy. And yes, I am totally proud of myself for doing it.  I had a hard upbringing so doing something that big was a milestone in my life.

What would your perfect day look like if you based it off of meals?

Oh. my. god.

Are you hungry guys? because this shit is about to get real.

Cracker Barrel
White chocolate and fresh berry French toast with whipped cream on the side


Location: Ted’s Hot Dogs
Meal: Foot long hot dog with mayo and ketchup, fries, and a strawberry shake


Location: Jack Astor’s
Meal: Cheesy garlic bread & mozzarella sticks (appetizers).  For my entree, a cheeseburger



Location: Cheesecake Factory
Meal: Strawberry cheesecake


Sweet, sweet paradise *mmmmmm*

Where would you like to live?

Honestly I’d really love to live in Florida.  I don’t like the cold weather at all.  I also thought it’d be really nice to live in England for awhile.  My paternal side of the family all hail from there.

If you won the lottery what would you do with the money?

Pay off my student loans faster than you could flip a pancake.  Pay off my parents debts and give them extra.  Donate to animal rescues. Save the rest.

What kind of music do you like?

It depends on my mood but alternative has always been a steady choice for me.  I love old school Paramore, Fall out boy, Panic!, All American Rejects, still digging MCR.

Do you have any pets?

Yes! I have a 9 year old cat named Butters, a rescue dog named Marley (she was just recently featured on Susie’s Senior Dogs!!!), and my foster chihuahua, Joey.

Favorite type of cookie?

Double chocolate. YUM.  I was thinking of making a baking post with them (plus my recipe!) but I wasn’t sure how it would be received.  You might get diabetes just looking at the photos hehe.

Favorite book trope?

I’m loving the whole badass female assassin books.  PRAISING SJM FOREVER.

What are you feeling right now?



Okay, I’ll end it there guys!  I’m terrible at thinking of questions.  If you have any more for me ask below!  I don’t mind and I love letting you guys get to know me better! 🙂
