Welcome to Bookstagram, a hashtag based portion of Instagram occasionally referred to as Instabook, where bibliophiles around the world take and share book photos.
Pretty self-explanatory stuff.
My November additions to Bookstagram marked the beginning of my love affair with my new iPhone and my hate affair with the lack of natural sunlight while I’m home.

I went into the so-called eighth book in the Harry Potter series with very low expectations, which was definitely the right move. While I found the beginning of the play to be enjoyable, by the second half, I was tired of the shenanigans and the ridiculous dialogue. It was acceptable fan fiction, but it was no Harry Potter.
The final book in the ridiculously over-the-top Royals series has arrived and it ended with a bang — albeit an extremely predictable one. From the Pretty Little Liars-esque cliffhanger in Broken Prince, to all the open-ended love stories, the duo calling themselves Erin Watt make sure to tie everything up in a nice little bow.

Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton (★★★★☆½)
I usually don’t take stock in blurb comparisons, but Tiny Pretty Things truly is Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars. Full of backstabbing ballerinas and even more backstabbing ballerinas, this drama-filled young adult novel (the first in a duology) takes a very dark look behind the curtain into the cutthroat ballet world.Read More »
2015 was the year I said goodbye to goals and decided to focus on quality over quantity. Despite promising not to judge my end result, I was still bummed I didn’t hit 100 books. Regardless, even though I still took all of May off to move apartments, I was only two books shy of my goal-centric 2014 total, reading 94 books in 2015.
For this year’s best and worst of wrap up, I decided to do things a little differently and divide my favorites and least favorites of the year by genre. Note: these are the books I read in 2015 and are not limited to books published in 2015.
You can check out a visual list of all the books I read in 2015 over on GoodReads — for the best and worst, continue scrolling!
