Book Review: This Book Loves You by Pewdiepie

I just want to get this out there first guys, that I really do love Pewdiepie and his videos. I think he is funny and I’ve been watching him for years. Although I really like Pewdiepie, this book was just not it folks! I understand this book was kind of meant the be a coffee table book, but honestly who would even put this on their coffee table for people to see?

This Book Loves You


Pages: 256

Format: ebook

Genre(s): Nonfiction, Humor

Publication Date: October 20, 2015

This Book Loves You by PewDiePie is a collection of beautifully illustrated inspirational sayings by which you should live your life. If you follow each and every one, your life will become easier, more fabulous, more rewarding.

Imagine what a chilled-out and wonderful human being people would think you were if you lived by the simple principle “You can never fail if you never try.” Your wasted life would be an inspiration to others. Think of all the pointless, unhappy striving you could simply give up. Throw away that guitar! Give up on your dreams! Embrace your astounding mediocrity.

This Book Loves You has something for everyone–or at least everyone willing to give up and stop caring. If all else fails, remember: “Don’t be yourself. Be a pizza. Everyone loves pizza.”

  • ‘ghostwritten by Edgar’ – I love Edgar in all of his videos so I just thought that one little line was cute and funny.
  • Maybe only a handful of quotes – There were only a few that I found to actually be funny
  • Money grab – Honestly, it seemed like a HUGE money grab to me. I just have a hunch he had no input into this and just found a couple of quotes on the internet and told someone to put them in this book. He spent one afternoon taking silly pictures of himself to include in it and then bam, make millions off of it.
  • Some quotes were distasteful – Some quotes I honestly couldn’t believe he had in there. If you have kids that enjoy watching Pewdiepie, do not let them read this.
  • Nothing regarding Pewdiepie at all – It had nothing to do with him! I couldn’t get past the fact that this was all for a money grab.

Arc Review: Batman: Nightwalker The Graphic Novel by Stuart Moore & Marie Lu

Hey everyone! How is everyone’s November going? Mine is actually going by really quickly, and I can’t believe all the stuff I am getting done. Today we have a DC Comic review! I read Teen Titans: Raven a little while back and realized I really want to dive more into the world of comics.

Thank you to DC Ink for sending me a copy of this in exchange for a review!

Batman: Nightwalker

Title: Batman: Nightwalker (The Graphic Novel)

Author: Stuart Moore (adaptor), Marie Lu, Chris Wildgoose (Illustrator)

Pages: 208

Format: ARC paperback

Genre(s): YA Graphic Novel, Comics

Publication Date: October 1, 2019

*I was given this book in exchange for an honest review from the publishers. All thoughts are my own. Thank you DC Ink.*

Based on the New York Times bestselling novel by Marie Lu, this graphic novel adaptation brings to life the dark mysteries behind the gates of Arkham Asylum. Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and 18 year-old Bruce Wayne is next on their list.

Bruce Wayne is turning 18 and inheriting his family’s fortune. But on the way home from his birthday party, he makes an impulsive choice that leads him to Arkham Asylym, the infamous mental hospital. There, he meets Madeline Wallace, a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope. Madeline is the mystery Bruce must unravel, but is he convincing her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees?

Bruce Wayne is proof that you don’t need superpowers to be a superhero, but can he survive Madeleine’s game of tense intrigue and deception?

This graphic novel adaptation from New York Times bestselling author Marie Lu and artist Christian Wildgoose is a dark, action-packed thrill ride!

  • The story – I thought the story was okay, following Bruce before he really kind of became Batman. It wasn’t like a mind shattering story, but it was still decent enough.
  • The writing – I thought the writing was good. It was easy to follow along, not rushed or anything. A pretty good pace for a graphic novel.
  • Everything clicked in the end – I love it when re-tellings kind of help bring the entire picture together. Like when everything starts clicking into place with the story you’ve known for ages. Basically, when you find yourself saying to yourself ‘ohhhh that’s how that came to be’. That’s what I love in re-telling’s or prequels to the actual stories.
  • The romance…??? – Okay this romance was soooo stupid. I mean honestly, what the hell was going on here. I hated it from the second it started to lean that way and hated it throughout the entire book. Just, no. It didn’t need it!
  • The artwork was pretty dark – I don’t know if this is just a common theme with comics and I’m just now catching on but… why the hell was everything so blue? Literally the main colors used in this book were blue, black, white, and maybe a tinge of yellow. Is this common in comics? Someone please educate me asap.
  • Not that much action for a DC superhero – I could’ve used just a little bit more action in this. It was all talk and then the fight scenes were only really a few pages long. Most of the book was just talking.
  • Asylum as community service? – I’m sorry but this was just a little too weird for me. Like, oh, you get in trouble for trying to take down a Nightwalker?? How about as your punishment we make you work at an insane asylum WITH NIGHTWALKERS IN IT. God, it’s like they just asking for more problems! Plus, who gets community service… IN AN ASYLUM???

Book Review: The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty’s Prince (Villains #2) by Serena Valentino

How is everyone doing? I have been so busy lately trying to get everything together for this upcoming holiday season, because let’s be honest… it is STRESSFUL. The happiest time of year, yet the most stressful time. Agree? lol.

If you guys didn’t check out my review to the first book, you definitely should because this series… I don’t know guys it’s looking really bright right now. I am getting very excited to continue on and I don’t think it will be long until I am all caught up.

The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince

Title: The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty’s Prince (Villains #2)

Author: Serena Valentino

Series Number: 2

Pages: 215

Format: e-book

Genre(s): YA, Fairy-Tale Re-tellings

Publication Date: July 22, 2014

A cursed prince sits alone in a secluded castle. Few have seen him, but those who claim they have say his hair is wild and nails are sharp–like a beast’s! But how did this prince, once jovial and beloved by the people, come to be a reclusive and bitter monster? And is it possible that he can ever find true love and break the curse that has been placed upon him?

  • The writing – Again, what a great writing style Valentino has. Easy to read and follow along, good descriptions of how characters act and look. This author is on a roll so far and I am enjoying the series.
  • The twists – I found myself to have plenty of ‘jaw-dropping’ moments in this book. If you really love Disney, and know the original Beauty and the Beast as well as I do, there will be moments in this book where your jaw either drops, or something just clicks with you in your head because things are really starting to make sense.
  • Circe – Loved Circe. Mixing in with the Odd sisters, finding out her role in all of this, it added a lot more depth to the movie’s original story. I can’t wait to read more about her in the next book.
  • More focus on the Beast before he was the Beast – YES. Loved that we got a really in depth look into his past before he really transitioned into the Beast. Wow, did that really bump this book up in rating for me.
  • Rushed Ending – The ending was rushed, and I hate that. It easily could have been 30-40 pages longer and I would have loved it.
  • Again, no actual name of the Prince/Beast – I really wanted the names. Thank god in the next 3 books I already know the names of the villains. (Ursula, Maleficent, Mother Gothel)

Popular Books I Have No Interest In Reading

I am not ashamed my friends! I am totally not ashamed to write this post!

I know there are some of you out there that hear about hyped up books, I know there are people out there telling you ‘OMG YOU NEED TO READ THIS’ over and over again, and you just DON’T want to. Ladies and Gentleman, that is my life everyday lol. I love it when people recommend me books that they think I will love, and honestly I have learned about some of my favorite authors and favorite books through these recommendations… but I have to admit, there are a few books I see either really hyped up or recommended to me that I just have zero interest in. Let’s get into a list of popular books I have no interest reading and probably never will.

(1) Six of Crows series by Leigh Bardugo

I have literally no interest in this series. They are so hyped to the point I haven’t even read them and they just annoy the crap out of me. It’s great that so many people love it and I’m happy people really love it… but UGH I need to move on from this series and seeing it literally everywhere.

(2) Any Cassandra Clare book

Image result for cassandra clare

Not that I have a problem with her as a person, it’s just her books don’t apply to the kind of reader I am. I never had an interest in her books, and I know I will not be able to hold my attention long enough to read all of them even if I did like them.

(3) Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer

Image result for twilight series books

Yes, I do have the first book on my TBR… but if I ever do get to that first book, I don’t think I’ll ever finish the series. 7th grade me might have really liked this series, but now? Ehh. I think my 21 year old self is past the prime age intended for this series.

(4) Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead

Image result for vampire academy books

Yeah, no. No interest. Plus this series has mixed reactions anyways so yeah.

(5) Becoming by Michelle Obama

Image result for becoming michelle obama

I actually own this book. I got it last Christmas from my parents and I even ASKED for it. So what happened? I read the first 5 pages just to kind of preview it and I just can’t. I’m pretty sure this book would get super interesting for me since I LOVE the Obama’s, but it just hasn’t been of interest to me and I thought at some point this year I would read it and get to it but it just hasn’t happened to me.

(6) Pretty Little Liars series – Sara Shepard

Image result for pretty little liars series

I started this series… but oh my god you’d have to pay me money to finish it. I can’t. There’s 20 books in the series now. Like I think I reached book 10 maybe and just lost interest. The girls grew up, they are just no longer interesting and it just got to the point where the books felt just like a giant money grab.

Well that’s my list. Let me know which books you guys can just NOT get into, and maybe even tell me if you disagree with some on this list. See you next time guys!

Book Review: Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen (Villains #1) by Serena Valentino

Second time reading this, and to no surprise I am still in love with this. I read this book last year in like… November and I was so sad I never took notes on it or reviewed it, so I decided to break my no re-read rule and re-read this. Now that I went ahead and did that, I am now reading all of the books in the series so far. Further investigation, there’s a confirmed total of 9 books….. 🙂 so, we will see how far I get in the series.

Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen

Title: Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen (Villains #1)

Author: Serena Valentino

Series Number: 1

Pages: 250

Format: paperback

Genre(s): YA Fantasy Re-tellings

Publication Date: August 18, 2009

The tale of the young princess and her evil stepmother, the Wicked Queen, is widely known. Despite a few variations from telling to telling, the story remains the same—the Queen was jealous of the girl’s beauty, and this jealousy culminated in the Queen’s attempt on the sweet, naive girl’s life.

Another tale far less often spoken of is the one that explains what caused the Queen to become so contemptuously vile. Still, some have attempted to guess at the reason. Perhaps the Queen’s true nature was that of a wicked hag and her beautiful, regal appearance a disguise used to fool the King. Others claim that the Queen might have hated the girl for her resemblance to the King’s first wife. Mostly, the Queen is painted as a morally abhorrent woman who never loved another being during the course of her miserable life.

In fact, the theories about exactly what cause the Queen’s obsessive vanity and jealous rage are too numerous to catalog. This book recounts a version of the story that has remained untold until now. It is a tragic tale of love and loss, and it contains a bit of magic. It is a tale of the Wicked Queen…

  • The story – I loved this story when I read it last year, and I still love it. There is just something really unique about it. I love hearing the back story behind The Queen because it makes me start to look at her a little differently.
  • The writing – Valentino might be one of my new favorite authors because the writing was just…. wow. So easy to read and follow along with, and with fantasy fairy-taleish books you don’t find that too often. I loved how things just started to click in the story towards the end and everything just started to make sense. Definitely want to continue on with this series.
  • The Queen – What an amazing, well-written villain. Honestly, I love The Queen and her personality, the amount of love she is able to hold in her heart even when her entire young life/childhood was a complete and utter mess. How can you truly not like her just from that? The way she loves Snow, it’s not a typical step-mother jealousy type of style fairy-tale. No, it is something far, far deeper.
  • Verona – I loved the addition of Verona in here. It made the original story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs seem not enough. Not enough of a story without Verona. I don’t think there can be one person in this world who reads this book and then decides they don’t care for Verona.
  • The emotion behind it – A lot of emotions, and love and heartbreak and sadness and grief. Trust me, when I tell you this book does damage to your heart… it does A LOT of it.
  • The Queen’s original name is unknown – I really don’t like this in books. I would have love to known the name of The Queen in this book, and I remember the first time I read it, I was also kind of bothered by this. At least in this book it sort of wasn’t as noticeable, you just kind of rolled with it.

Book Review: Archenemies (Renegades #2) by Marissa Meyer

Holy crap…. I am in love with this series. Oh my god. Someone help me. I need Supernova RIGHT. NOW. You can bet I will be buying Supernova because I CANNOT WAIT.

If you can’t tell about my excitement, I loved this book. I loved the first one, loved this one… I NEED SUPERNOVA. I haven’t felt this excited since Finale came out okay. YES, I have actually found a series I love just as much as Caraval! Anyways, let’s collect ourselves people and get into the review.

Archenemies (Renegades, #2)

Archenemies (Renegades #2)

Marissa Meyer

Pages: 474

Format: hardcover

Genre: YA Superhero Fantasy

Publication Date: November 6, 2018

Time is running out.
Together, they can save the world.
But they each are other’s worst nightmare.

In Renegades, Nova and Adrian (aka Insomnia and Sketch) fought the battle of their lives against the Anarchist known as the Detonator. It was a short-lived victory.

The Anarchists still have a secret weapon, one that Nova believes will protect her. The Renegades also have a strategy for overpowering the Anarchists, but both Nova and Adrian understand that it could mean the end of Gatlon City – and the world – as they know it.

  • Nova & Adrian – Okay hi, loving the relationship Marissa Meyer! This is honestly the first time in a long time I have genuinely FELT something for a romance between two characters. Both are AMAZING characters on their own, but when they’re together… YES!
  • Max – Max is honestly adorable and I would do anything for him and I swear to god if he is not in Supernova or harmed in any way I will riot!
  • The pacing – The writing and the pacing of the book is fantastic. Honestly with most books I read I tend to pay attention to when they are about to end… but the ending really did creep up on me and I was shocked it ended.
  • The whole entire story!
  • The cliff hanger!!! – Usually I hate cliff hangers but I’m not even mad at this. It just makes me extremely excited for book 3.
  • Ace??????????? – If you’ve read the book… you know why I’m saying this. Read it.
