One of My Favorites...

Hello world! Have you missed me? I'm sorry that I haven't written a post in FOREVER, so I have decided that I am going to make this post extra special! I am not only going to include a trailer of one of my favorite books that I have read this year, but I am also going to talk about something that I have been doing all year.
This year I have been trying really hard to read 150 books. I know, that it's a bit of a lofty goal considering that I have to follow my rules.
Rule 1) Every book that I read has to be a book that I have not read before this year. For instance, if I read the same book twice this year, I cannot count it twice. But if I haven't read the book in a couple of years however, and I read it again THIS year, I can count it.
Rule 2) I have to read the book all the way through for it to count.
Rule 3) I do not count picture books. Yes, I know. Picture books are books too, but if it counted every time I read one of those, I would be done incredibly quickly, and I want to make this a real challenge!
Right now I have read 134 books following these rules. I know I may not make it to my goal, but I am still going to try!
Today I really want to show you a trailer that I made for one of my favorite books! It is called Some Kind of Happiness  by Claire Legrand. I read this book a couple of months ago, after reading another book by Claire Legrand called Foxheart. I had really enjoyed Foxheart, and so I decided to read Some Kind of Happiness.  You are probably getting tired of reading all about me, so now I invite you to watch the trailer that I have made for the wonderful book.... Some Kind of Happiness!

 I invite you to post one of your favorite reads this year, in the comment section below! Happy Holidays!

Fairy Tale Reform School (1) Flunked by Jen Calonita

Hi everyone! I read the first book in the Fairy tale Reform School called Flunked by Jen Calonita, and I thought it was super cool. It was about this girl, named Gilly, who is a bit of a thief,--well, actually she definitely IS a thief--and she always got away. Except the time where she didn't. And that failed attempt at escape was what got her sent to (dun da da dun!)  


Fairy Tale Reform School is basically a place where all the "bad kids" in the fantasy world go. The school is taught by former fairy tale villains like Cinderella's stepmother, The Big Bad Wolf, the Evil Queen, Sea Witch, ect.

The book is a really fun read, and I thought that the twists were great, and I did not see them coming! Well, I suppose that is the point of adding a twist....... anyway, all I am trying to say is..... I LOVED this book!

PS There is a second book! It is called Charmed!!!

Half Upon a Time Series by James Riley

Image result for half upon a timeImage result for half upon a timeHelloooooo everyone! So, lately I have been into this series by James Riley, Called Half Upon a Time. It is a bit of a spin on fairy tales, and I think that it is really, really good! I just finished reading the 3rd one the other day, and I was completely amazed at how many twists were in it!

Image result for half upon a timeIf you like fantasy or fairy tales, you will love these books! Oh yeah. In case you were wondering, the 1st book is called Half Upon a Time, the 2nd is called Twice Upon a time, and the 3rd is called Once Upon the End. If I had to choose one as my favorite, I would most DEFINITELY be the 3rd!!!! I loved it so much! When I was reading it, I completely forgot where I was, and when I lifted my eyes from the page, I was really confused. I was thinking something like Why am I in the library-- I felt like I was in the Wicked Queen's castle!

You should-- I mean you HAVE TO!--read these books!
