Top 5 Fave Dads in YA

Happy Father’s Day, friends! Today is the day to celebrate all of the wonderful fathers out there and since this is a site where we also recognize fictional peeps, I thought it would be fun to share my fave dads in YA. Not gonna lie, it was a little difficult to find five since — let’s be honest — we don’t really get a great list of amazing parental figures to choose from in Young Adult lit. However, there are some great people that I feel should be acknowledged since they made us laugh and gave the loveliest of advice that I will forever keep with me!

Without further ado, let me introduce you to the cool dads of YA !!

BookExpo Haul + Giveaway | 2018

Hey friends! Today i’ll be showing you all of the books that I grabbed while I was at BookExpo last week. It was my first time going to the event and it was a total blast! I definitely tried to limit myself with the amount of ARCs I brought home due to the fact that storage room was limited since I was flying. However, in the end we still had to purchase another carry-on bag for the flight home because I literally have no self control (as you will see in the rest of the post ahahah).

I feel like the easiest way to show the books is by publication order so without further ado, here are the books I got!!

~also, peep towards the end of this post for details on what i’m giving away and how you can possibly win some books and swag!~

In T-minus 30 minutes from typing this the Summer round of Cramathon will start! I know i’m getting to this suuuper last minute but that’s mainly due to the fact that I totally forgot to make a TBR so here I am… flailing around per usual before readathons. However, I have a really exciting line-up of books on my list to read so i’m veeery excited to share them with you all!

~also~ now that i’m on summer break i’m hoping that i can finish these all easily since all i really have planned this week is my graduation — i can totally read during the ceremony though, right??

Rating: ★★★★.5☆ (4.5/5)

Synopsis via Goodreads: Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her to join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond.

While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.

Top Ten Tuesday: Eight Books I Disliked but Am Glad I Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Every week there’s a new given topic and you post your top ten list that goes with the subject. This weeks topic is “Books I Disliked/Hated but Am Really Glad I Read” and I actually had a hard time with this one since if I dislike a book, i’m usually not glad that I read it afterwards. It’s mainly because it took a lot out of me to finish said book so then i’m like, “well dang, why did I even bother picking it up in the first place?” Therefore, I only could come up with eight books that i’m glad to have read for many reasons like: they could have introduced me to the author’s writing style, some interesting characters, or even brought me to read the sequel which I loved much more.
