Hi friends! Some of you may remember, but about a month ago I took a blogging hiatus. And, well, I got SUPER behind on reviews as a result. I had plans to review everything I read while on hiatus, but that quickly became very overwhelming and highly unrealistic. So I chose the books I thought would make for the most interesting post, and decided to do my first mini-reviews! If you guys do want to read my thoughts on some of the other books I read, you can always friend me on Goodreads!

What’s this?? My very first discussion post? I’m so excited you guys! I hope you enjoy the topic, and big thanks to my bestie Jordyn @ Jordz the Bibliophile for helping me decide on it. Also, you may notice I finally came up with a post divider, hopefully it looks alright!
Now what exactly is the perfect reading mood? For me, it’s being in a mindset where I’m relaxed, focused, and excited to read as much as possible! But there are many factors that affect whether or not I’m in the right environment to obtain that mood. So, here’s a list that details exactly what I do when I sit down to read. Of course, not everything will apply to everyone – we’re all different people with different habits! But this is what I think creates the Perfect Reading Mood.

Hello my fellow bookworms! I can’t tell you how good it feels to be publishing another Wrap-Up post. Although they’re probably not the most interesting kind of posts to read, I find it very therapeutic to collect my thoughts on the last month, and see how much I was able to get done.
Most recently, my bookish attention has been focused on attempting to limit the number of books I buy. I’m guessing this is a problem for almost everyone reading this post, but it’s a really difficult one for me. Just check out some of my past wrap-ups to see what my hauls looked like! In order to try to lower my TBR and limit my spending, I came up with a book-buying ban – of a sort. In a nut shell, I only buy one book for every two books that I actually read. So far, it hasn’t been going too badly!

Synopsis: Caroline Oresteia is destined for the river. For generations, her family has been called by the river god, who has guided their wherries on countless voyages throughout the Riverlands. At seventeen, Caro has spent years listening to the water, ready to meet her fate. But the river god hasn’t spoken her name yet—and if he hasn’t by now, there’s a chance he never will.
Caro decides to take her future into her own hands when her father is arrested for refusing to transport a mysterious crate. By agreeing to deliver it in exchange for his release, Caro finds herself caught in a web of politics and lies, with dangerous pirates after the cargo—an arrogant courier with a secret—and without the river god to help her. With so much at stake, Caro must choose between the life she always wanted and the one she never could have imagined for herself.
From debut author Sarah Tolcser comes an immersive and romantic fantasy set along the waterways of a magical world with a headstrong heroine determined to make her mark.
To put it simply, I LOVED THIS BOOK. Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a review if I just left it at that. So, let me attempt to put all my squealing emotions and uncontrollable feels into words.
