ARC Reviews  For those of you who are unfamiliar with what an ARC is, it's an abbreviated form of Advanced Reader's Copy, or Advanced Reviewer's Copy.  They're not exactly the same, but that's a minor technicality I'm not going to worry about at the moment.  The below reviews were for books I've won from Goodreads' giveaways.  Most of them have taken forever for me to read, but nonetheless, I read them.  Some of them were a complete bore, and some turned out to be all right.  Needless to say, these were not the best books I've ever read.

Math and Me

Something you should know before you continue reading the rest of this post:  I hate math.  I hate it to a degree that were my hatred a fire, it would burn bright and mighty.  It would burn all things math.  I hate it to a degree that I can't even find words strong enough to describe my hatred, but you probably already knew that if you read my About Me section.  :)

Review: Instinct (Chronicles of Nick, #6) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Instinct by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Read: May 15-20, 2015
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Another wonderful masterpiece from one of my most favourite authors. YIPPEE!

Here's the synopsis from Goodreads:
"Zombies, demons, vampires, shapeshifters— another day in the life of Nick Gautier– and those are just his friends. But now that he’s accepted the demon that lives inside him, he must learn to control it and temper the very emotions that threaten the lives of everyone he cares for. Something that’s hard to do while trying to stay off the menus of those who want his head on a platter. And no one wants him more than the dark gods who created his race. Now that they know where he is, they will stop at nothing to reclaim him. And without knowing it, Nick has just embraced the one person he should never have trusted. The one person who will hand him over to his enemies to get back the life they lost.

Nick has finally accepted his fate, now he must learn to defy his destiny, and the dark, deadly forces that will stop at nothing to destroy everyone he loves so that they can again return to the world of man and own it. "

Review: The Beauty Series by Georgia Cates

This is one of those series that walk the borderline between teen and adult...or, maybe one that has already crossed this imaginary line...but...I heard it was good, so I gave it a shot...

My Teacher's Mug and the Stupid Girl (me) Who Had No Idea How to Operate a Water Fountain

A few weeks ago, April 23rd, to be exact, my teacher in Planning 10, asked me for a simple favor. But the trip I took to complete her simple task was anything but simple.  If only she knew how this one errand would cause me so much trouble...

I Just Realized Something...

Okay, like the heading just said, I just realized something.  Nothing big, like the meaning of life or anything like that, but about what I'm doing here.  Or actually lack of what I'm doing here. 

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure that this blogging thing is supposed to be a regular thing.  I don't remember the last time I posted something on here, which might be a problem.  I'm still writing down stuff so that I'll remember to put it on here later, but I just so lazy.  I procrastinate and give pathetic excuses like, "Oh, I don't have enough time for that..." when really, I have so much time, I just choose not to spend that time on this.

 I "run away" from doing anything that requires too much brain power, much like this adorable penguin.  Even though I shouldn't be running away, because I had a goal in mind when I decided to start a blog.  I wanted to be able to type out my thoughts and feelings, and hopefully it will help me voice out my thoughts better, maybe.

Anyways, I will try to post on here more regularly from now on.  How does once a century sound?  Good? No? Okay, how about once a decade?  Better?  No? Okay, fine.  How about once a month, maybe?  Good?  Okay good.  But no promises.....

Review: Evermore (The Immortals, #1) by Alyson Noel

Evermore by Alyson Noel
Read: August 9-September 14, 2014
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

This book has been on my to-reads for a really long time now...and based on the reviews I've read, I wasn't expecting much.
Evermore is about a girl who gains physic abilities after a tragic accident. She can now hear people's thoughts and see the dead. So she avoids pretty much everyone, until she meets Damen, a person who's thoughts she can't hear. Then as the two get to know each other, their relationship grows, and Ever finds out Damen's been keeping secrets. And she wants to find out what.
The first half of the book was really irritating. I have to say Ever's and Damen's relationship was one of the most frustrating relationships I have ever read. It was unbelievable how she kept forgiving him over and over again. But then, later on in the story, I found out why Damen acted the way he did. I enjoyed the book much better after that.
After reading this book, I thought it wasn't as bad as some of the reviews I've read, but it wasn't that great either...I am looking forward to reading the next book.

Review: The Eye of Minds (The Mortality Doctrine, #1) by James Dashner

The Eye of Minds by James Dashner
Read: April 27-May 5, 2015
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

I picked this book up because of two things: the synopsis was very creative and unique, and James Dashner wrote it. I read the Maze Runner series, and I adored it very much, so, seeing that James Dashner wrote another series, I had high expectations that this series would be equally as fantastic. Much to my dismay, my expectations were not reached.
