Happy February! I had a great reading month: I rated all the books I read in Feb either 4 or 5 stars. Here's what I read (and loved)... Piecing Me Together by Renée WatsonWhen I read this book, I could tell that it was the kind of story that causes movement. Jade, the protagonist and… Continue reading What Annie read this month… | February wrap-up and reviews

Happy end of January! I'm trying out a new review format: I'm going to post mini-reviews at the end of each month while still posting full-length reviews for ARCs and maybe a couple books that really knock it out of the park. Here's what I read this month. Stay Sexy and Don't Get Murdered by… Continue reading What Annie read in this month | January wrap-up
Today I'm sharing my favorite and least favorite books of 2019! Drop me a comment and let me know if you agree (or don't)... 9. One Day in December by Josie SilverI loved almost every element of this book!

Buckle your seatbelts, ladies and gentleman. Today's post is the first of two chronicling everything I read in 2019 in the form of mini-reviews. The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGeeI loved loved loved this book! The glitzy, futuristic setting and nail-biting dramatic twists and turns made for the perfect post-New Year's read. I highly recommend… Continue reading Everything Annie read last year…
When I read a sequel, one of my biggest concerns is how the authors expand the narrative; I want a sequel with higher stakes and wilder adventures than its predecessor. With The Rule of Many, that is absolutely the case. The world of Ava and Mira Goodwin expanded far beyond the first installment in this series. I got to see their overarching role in the revolution, and the glimpses into different aspects of their society gave me a more well-rounded view of the world they live in.
There's nothing I love more than a rainy day, which is convenient because April in North Carolina is nothing but rain. So grab all the blankets in your house (and I mean every single one), snuggle under your blanket pile, and pick up one of these books for the ultimate atmospheric and slightly moody reading experience.
As I said in my worst books of 2018 post, I didn't read a truly terrible book this year. That's amazing, of course, but it made choosing this list all the more difficult. I read so many different types of good book this year, from queer romances to literary classics to some good old-fashioned trashy… Continue reading Best 8 of 2018 | Annie Reads
Kicking off a quick lil series of reading wrap-ups is the worst books I read in 2018. Here's the thing: I didn't read any bad books this year.
