My Year in Reading: Cassie-la’s January 2017 Wrap Up

january-2017-book-reading-wrap-up

Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott (★★★★½)

After being kidnapped by Ray, Alice becomes a living dead girl, forced to stay small forever. Alice has resigned herself to her fate and even looks forward to her impending death at Ray’s hands, until he demands she recruit another girl — a younger Alice who will take her place. Disturbing yet beautiful, Scott’s novel comes with all the trigger warnings.

The Amateurs by Sara Shepard (★★★☆☆)

Sara Shepard’s The Amateurs is a super problematic novel with one hell of a twist ending. From the one-dimensional characters to the deeply disturbing male POVs and the weird way race is handled — not to mention all the relationships centered around statutory rape — Shepard has gone off the rails with this series, and not in her usual good way. [WATCH BOOK CLUB DISCUSSION]

The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis (★★★★½)

Pitched as young adult Dexter, The Female of the Species is actually a feminist novel disguised as a serial-killer novel. Read: I was pleasantly surprised. In the story, McGinnis unflinchingly tackles rape culture, filling her (at times) disturbing novel with complex women and strong female friendships.

Not only that, but it was also the first year I participated in and crushed all five of my reading challenges — more on that in another post later this week.

For now, you can check out a visual list of all the books I read in 2016 over on GoodReads, and for my favorite and most disappointing reads of the year, head below the jump!

My Year in Reading: Cassie-la’s November 2016 Bookstagram Wrap Up

Currently reading this crazy Harry Potter fan fiction. ⚡️

A post shared by Cassie-la (@yrchmonger) on

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.
