Book Traveling Thursdays | First Read of 2017

Book Traveling Thursdays.png

I have seen this weekly meme appearing on dozens of book blogs all over the internet, but never thought to participate in it myself! Book Traveling Thursdays is a weekly meme created by Cátia @The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @Danielle’s Book Blog. The purpose of this is to share a pictures of the original cover, the cover from your country (if their are multiple covers from your country include all of them!), your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover, that relates to the weekly theme that you can find on the  Goodreads group.

This week’s theme is, “With a new year come new books… Choose your first read of 2017.” My first read of 2017 was Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – a cliche, over-dramatic, and unmemorable YA romance.

Without further ado, let’s get to it! This survey was created by the lovely Jamie @ The Perpetual Page-Turner .

Just Another Book in the Wall – Stellar Scrutiny Reincarnated!

Hi everyone! Happy New Year! Remember me? I had a little blog last year called Stellar Scrutiny, where I reviewed and rambled about books. Due to my insane schedule, however, I was regretfully unable to post often, and my blog eventually dissolved into oblivion. As this new year begins, I decided to create a new book blog from the ashes of my previous one, called Just Another Book in the Wall! I was never quite content with the name or look of my blog, so a new year is the perfect time for a fresh start!

Review | Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

“The truth is what I make it. I could set this world on fire and call it rain.”

 photo Synopsis_zpseza8bbqr.png

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart …

Let’s Talk About… Spine-Breakers

I feel so ashamed! I missed last week’s discussion post, and I’ve hardly blogged these past two weeks! *cries* Luckily, I managed to (somehow) find the time to write this week’s discussion post. Without further ado, let’s talk about spine-breakers! 

Am I A Spine-breaker?

I’m not necessarily referring to readers who actually break the spines of their novels (ah, the horror!), but people in general who don’t mind getting their book a little roughed up. Do I fall into this category? Thankfully, I do not. I love to treat for the precious treasures that they are. ❤ I will never add creases to my spine or bend a page if I can help it!
