Ew. “Poetry is the food of love”
*insert massive eye roll*
Wait, wait… That’s not why we’re here? Oh, okay. Fine. I guess I’ll refrain from laughing at the language and romancing of the early 1800s.
Pride and Prejudice is my first Jane Austen novel. My friends have been hounding me for years to read the thing (since I refuse to watch the thing when I haven’t read the thing) and I finally obliged.

A wise bunny once told me:
“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”

I’ve read my first sci-fi novel of 2017! *throws confetti* And it was about time travel! *more confetti*
I was so highly anticipating this book, and was, unfortunately, a tad underwhelmed. This is already the second time this year (it’s still January!) when book two of the duology didn’t make the cut for me. Maybe I’m just in a reading funk or something.

To complete the Cascade Badge in the #ReadThemAllThon, I chose Wonder by R.J. Palacio as the book that might make me cry.
Well, friends. I chose this wisely. During one chapter in particular, my preschooler saw my face and immediately asked, “Mommy, what’s wrong?”

Hello again, friends!
Welcome to my second post and my first book review. I’ve got to be honest before I start, though, and warn you that I haven’t really read any book reviews on other blogs. If there’s a set standard or expectation, I likely won’t meet it. However, what you’re about to read below will be my very own standard: some personal thoughts and zero spoilers. ‘Cause I freaking hate spoilers (it’s actually why I don’t like to read book reviews).
Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s jump right into The Maze Runner:
