Book Wonderland

Book Wonderland

Wow. What a catchy title amirite? (I kid. That is one horrible title. Just goes to show how creative I am.) Anyway. I'm Lex and while I might not be that great with words, I read a lot and I have a lot of opinions about the books I read. I'm not the best book reviewer but over time I will get better and learn more. Enjoy:)

The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater

So I did dnf this a while ago because it was so disappointing but now that the last book is out (and I semi know what happens, tried not to look at spoilers on tumblr but that was hard) I kind of want to try reading this again? (Also now that I know about Adam and Ronan lmao. I just really like Adam okay) I don't know if I should try this again or not 

I haven't been on here in so long I forgot what it looked like ><. I've just been in a really bad reading slump these past few months. Trying to force myself to read and it's just not working lol. Hopefully I get back into the swing of things soon

To DNF Or Not to DNF
The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater

I was really excited to read this but I know understand why I put it off. I'm just really not feeling this book and it sucks. Kind of want to dnf it. I should have probably paid attention during the first 50 pages 

Reading progress update: I've read 68 out of 409 pages.
The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater

Maybe because I'm still dealing with book hangovers that I'm just not feeling this book 

5 Stars
Oblivion - Kelly Creagh

HOLY CRAP THAT WAS AMAZING. I actually cried when I read the last page.


Another fantastic book from her and a fantastic way of ending my all time favorite series. (Yep, this trilogy is my number one. I've said it. I'm sorry JK Rowling.)


i just love this trilogy so much.


I want to know however what possessed me to read the concluding books of two of my favorite series back to back because I went into this still not over Winter. (Still not over it let's be real. I cried at the ending to that too.)


I'm going to have the worst book hang over after these two. 


Kelly Creagh, if by some weird thing of I don't know I still can't form coherent thoughts since I just finished this, and you read this, please write more books. I need more of you're writing. It's so good. (And of nevermore because obviously can't get enough of it.)


i really need to go to bed

Oblivion - Kelly Creagh

I've waited three years for this and let me tell you this did not disappoint 

Do you ever just read a book that is so good and sticks with you that you can't stop thinking or talking about it and it's gets really bad? I was in the shower before (tmi LOL) and I was having a good 5 minute conversation with myself about a book I'm reading 

I think it's safe to say I failed both of my reading challenges. They weren't even that hard. I was so stoked to do them and then months came and went and a lot of reading slumps happened. That shouldn't be an excuse but I'm using it.


I should have been able to do the lgbtqia+ challenge but nope I only read two books of that and one of them doesn't even really count. I just have a really hard time reading realistic fiction and a majority of those books are. 


Does fan fiction count because a read a whole lot of that this year. Currently rereading a tmi fic that is a whole lot better than the actual books-let's be real a lot is better than those books lol.



How do people reading more than five books a month? 


I'm in setting high goals for next year
