WWW Wednesday 60

Hello, and happy Wednesday! This week’s been rough so far, even though I didn’t have school Monday, but with happier news, this is my 60th WWW Wednesday post! I can’t believe how many I’ve done!!

I also have the test for my learner’s permit Friday, so I’m going to spend a bunch of tomorrow studying, and reading through the manual. I’m really excited for it, but also kind of nervous.

I spent most of this evening working on a project for health, and I’m pretty close to finishing it. I still have to go over all of the text in pen, but I should be able to finish it pretty quickly. I really wanted to get this post out, since I haven’t had much time to blog yet this week, so here is a little reading update! I haven’t had a ton of time to read though, so not a ton has changed since last week, unfortunately!

Let’s Talk Bookish: Overused book tropes

Hello, and happy Friday! Today I didn’t have school which was really nice, and I did a small birthday thing with some friends, and I had a really good time with that!! I also read a fair amount this morning, and finished reading One of Us is Next, by Karen M. McManus. It was really good, and in my opinion much better than the first book in the series.

Anyways, onto today’s Let’s Talk Bookish topic! This one was actually suggested by me, so if you couldn’t guess, I’ve got lots of opinions on it. I’m so excited to be talking all about overused book tropes, so I’m gonna dive right into this post.

What some my favorite characters were doing when they were my age – part 2, age 14

Hello! Today was a pretty busy Thursday, but I have a four day weekend coming up: an exciting one, because my birthday’s on Sunday! I did a post like this last year, but it was all about 13 year old characters. I’ve been so excited for this one for so long, and it was so much fun to put together.

I’m in a weird in between age right now: Most young adult protagonists are 15-18, and middle grade characters are usually 12 and under. But I managed to scrape up a pretty good list of characters, and I hope you have fun reading about what they were all up to when they were my age, fourteen years old!

WWW Wednesday 59

Hello, and happy Wednesday! School was pretty boring today, as it was only a half day, and we didn’t do much, but my afternoon was really good! Two of my friends came over after school, and we watched some of Titanic, which was really fun, and afterwards I had my library volunteer training! I’m going to be doing shelf reading, and I’m a little nervous about how fun that’s going to be, but hopefully it’ll be good! Anyways, I’m going to jump right into my weekly reading update (and, because my birthday is this Sunday, the last WWW Wednesday post from while I’m fourteen!)

Our Violent Ends, by Chloe Gong | a spoiler free review for the finale to this amazing duology

Hello! I hope you’ve all had lovely weekends. My weekend was pretty good. I went to a pumpkin patch with some friends this afternoon, and it ended up raining really hard, but it was so much fun! I only have a four day week at school because it’s a grading day, which is really nice, so I’m at least looking forwards to that!

Anyways, I’m really excited for today’s review: it’s for one of my favorite books, and one of my most anticipated releases of this year: Our Violent Ends, by Chloe Gong, the finale to the These Violent Delights duology!

These Violent Delights is a historical fantasy set in 1920’s Shanghai, about the heirs to two gangs, the Scarlets and the White Flowers, who despite a blood feud going back must work together to stop a dangerous monster tearing through the city, infecting people and causing them to rip out their very own throats.

It’s an incredible book, so when I received an advance copy from the publisher I was ecstatic. So, without further ado, I’m going to dive right into my review for this amazing historical fantasy.
