Goodreads Synopsis:

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger. 

“Wild nights are my glory,” the unearthly stranger told them. “I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract”.

Meg’s father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space?

My Thoughts: 

I found this book in my house after my brother borrowed it from the library but never read it and was going to return it until I pounced and claimed it for myself. I had it sitting on my desk for a month before I finally got around to reading it! I honestly renewed it from the library 3 times. That’s okay though because I’ve finally read it!

I didn’t know anything about this book before going into it and the sci-fi elements really surprised me. I shouldn’t have been surprised though because hello the title is a dead giveaway but whatever it’s middle grade so it could have been about anything really.

Charles Wallace is my favorite! What a sweet intelligent boy! I was so upset when was being manipulated by IT.  Also Calvin! Do I sense a Meg and Calvin relationship in the future??

I’ve heard there’s a movie being made of this book, or maybe there already is one? I don’t know, it’s late at night and I don’t feel like doing extra research. Wait now I’m curious, one sec. AHA! There is a movie and it’s coming out in 2018 and I’m totally going to see it!

ALSO! Speaking of movies THE HATE YOU GIVE is being turned into a movie!! Omg see what I just did there, I capitalized the title. You know why? Because I’m a reviewer over at teenreads.com and I’m slowly being sucked into their formatting style. I will probably be adopting it completely over the next few months. Teen reads doesn’t stop me from being a fangirl and totally informal on my personal blog right here though!

Okay moving on, Aunt Beast was also so cute and so motherly I was so touched because I thought they were honestly going to eat Meg, Calvin and father. Also I thought I would like father a bit more but I didn’t which made me sad.

Verdict: 

Sci-fi space stuff and evil stuff and three witch things that can time travel! Can you tell senior year is getting to me? The college pressure is real ya’ll.

My rating: 

4 out of 5 stars


Thankfully school hasn’t put a damper on my reading just yet, I’m still reading a lot, but not blogging -_-

Anyhoo, have you read this book?! What did you think?! Let’s chat! Also no I am not over hyped on coffee right now, it’s the Greenday blasting in my ears that’s hyping me up, I swear. And Panic too.

P.s. I am sooo sore from cross country!

P.P.s. I’m taking my learner’s permit test on Friday for driver’s ed the following week and am nervous even though I know the test is easy from all of my friends.

 

I’m turning 16!! // An Ember in the Ashes GIVEAWAY!!

 

My 16th birthday is coming up next month on September 16th so I thought it would be the perfect time to host my very first giveaway!

I will be giving away a hardcover of An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir!

The giveaway will end on September 15, right before my birthday and I will be picking a winner on the morning of September 16.

This giveaway is for my blog followers, I was going to do one to celebrate 300 followers a few months ago, but that didn’t up happening so this is kind of my way of giving back to my awesome followers who always brighten up my day.

I must say, reading all of these books with the main characters being 16 and doing all of these independent things…I don’t feel like that at all. The fact that I’m going to be going into my second to last year of high school is crazy! College is coming up and I still feel like a 10 year old…

Well then, anyways, here’s the giveaway link:

Good luck everyone who enters! 🙂

I’m finally 15!

Privet! (Again, that’s hello in Russian) It’s my birthday today! Woot! I’m finally 15! I say finally because i’ve been telling everyone i was 15 since i turned 14 and a half, simply because then people would assume i was a year younger than a actually am.

I know, i know, soon i’ll be telling people i’m younger, but right now, it’s the opposite.

Clearly, i got some barnes and nobles gift cards for my birthday, and a Starbucks gift card, thanks to my friend at school and my friend at thtawkwardsilence. I also got a gift card to target…and a new phone!

People, i have finally arrived in the 21st century, and i now have a smartphone *applause*, thank you, thank you.

I feel like when you grow older, birthday’s become less of a big deal. Like, i was literally like, meh, today. I nearly forgot it was my birthday.

Also, it was so weird getting texts from my relatives. Like, how did they get my number? My mom probably. Cringe.

I don’t know, i don’t really feel any older, and i CANNOT believe that i’m turning 16 in a year, that’s crazy! I feel waaaaay younger than that.


Anyways, thanks for reading! I’m off to do homework. Ha ha, literally, the first thing i do when i get home from swim practice is write a blog post, priorities right?

I have my first swim meet tomorrow! Wish me good luck!
