#TBRTakedown Readathon 2.0: TBR and Goals

So, this morning, I’m watching YouTube, as one does while cross-stitching the hours away. (Full disclosure: I watch cross-stitch, knitting as well as a few select BookTube channels.) One of the videos I happened upon was Lindsey Rey‘s #TBRTakedown TBR video. I participated in the #TBRTakedown in early June and it was really successful. I read three books in a week which is just completely unheard of for me. So I knew that when #TBRTakedown … Keep Reading »

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

I originally reviewed Monument 14 in August of 2012 through my old blog, The Daily Bookmark. In an effort to bring my blog back, I’ve decided to repost some of my old reviews.
Emmy Laybourne packs a punch with her YA debut, Monument 14. Set during the very beginning of the apocalypse, it tells the story of the struggles for survival among a group of kids trapped in a superstore. Intense, thrilling and fast-paced, I read Monument 14 in a single … Keep Reading »
