#GirlLove – Let’s Send Girls to School!

Okay, so you probably read the title and are wondering: what is #GirlLove? Don’t feel ashamed; allow me to enlighten you.

 

#GirlLove was created by Lilly Singh (Queen!) as a way to stop the girl-on-girl hate, and empower women of all ages. The focus is on spreading love instead of hate, and it is such a positive influence in so many lives.

Lilly is such an amazing person, and she strives to make this world better for everyone. One of her goals is sending girls to school, and giving them a better education. And this year she has created yet another way to do that.

My Favorite Things About Fall

First of all, happy first day of fall! Fall is my favorite season – so I’m surprised I didn’t come up with this post idea on my own. I saw The Book Prophet make write something similar to this one (My Fall Essentials). I guess I’m just behind.

 

So I decided to do one too, which you can probably tell. So here’s what I (specifically) love about fall!

A Book and a Candle | The Lightning Thief + Percy Jackson

So I’ve been meaning to find an interesting way to show off some of cool bookish candles, and then I saw Brittany from A Book Addicts Guide do A Book and A Candle. Which is basically when she picks a book and a candle that she burned recently to talk about.

I liked that idea, but instead of picking random books to talk about, I’m going to do a book that I read that week, and a candle that either matches, or I burned a lot that week. We’ll see how this goes – I’m actually really excited!

My Favorite Writing Videos

This may come as a surprise to you, but I don’t really like videos about writing, specifically.

I find it so boring to watch a video specifically about how to write. I know how to do that, I want to learn something I may not know! Or, more accurately, how someone else’s writing process works.

 

Which is essentially what these videos are. They do teach you things about writing, but it’s more about the personality of who’s speaking, and how they see it.

 

Trust me, these videos are better than I’m making them sound. Let’s get started!

The Wicked Will Rise | Book Review

Title: The Wicked Will Rise (Dorothy Must Die #2)

Author: Danielle Paige

Publisher: Harper Collins

Genre: Fantasy, Retelling

Format: Hardcover


Synopsis

My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas. After a tornado swept through my trailer park, I ended up in Oz. But it wasn’t like the Oz I knew from books and movies. Dorothy had returned, but she was now a ruthless dictator. Glinda could no longer be called the Good Witch. And the Wicked Witches who were left? They’d joined forces as the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked, and they wanted to recruit me.

My mission? Kill Dorothy. Except my job as assassin didn’t work out as planned. Dorothy is still alive. The Order has vanished. And the home I couldn’t wait to leave behind might be in danger.

Somehow, across a twisted and divided land, I have to find the Order, protect the true ruler of Oz, take Dorothy and her henchmen down—and try to figure out what I’m really doing here.

September YA Book Releases | 2017

Okay, can I just say that August was the fastest month of the year?

I don’t know about you, but it went by faster than the rest of the year has, and I’m not sure if I should be scared or just ignore it. (Let’s be honest – there’s no way I have the attention span to care for more than a few weeks)

Anyway! There are some incredible new releases and sequels coming out this month! So let’s get on with this post! I organize by release date, BTW
