Blasphemy: Burn, Rewrite, Reread

Alright, everyone. I’m sorry for being a horrible blogger. I had all these things I was going to post this week, and it just didn’t happen. I will do better! I promise!

I do have this tag to share however. I saw it on (Over)Analysing Literature, and I just had to do it! I loved watching Chloe squirm.

Here’s the rules. Go to your read shelf on Goodreads, and choose to sort by random. From there, scroll down and divide the books that appear in groups of three. In each group, choose a book to burn, rewrite, or reread.

This is book blasphemy! Let’s get started, shall we? Continue reading “Blasphemy: Burn, Rewrite, Reread”

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

If you love this book, you might not want to read ahead. A lot of unpopular opinions are about to spew from my lips…er fingers.

Rating: 2/5

It all starts with the cover. At first glance, you see it, and you’re blown away. It looks so bad-ass and awesome! But then you look closer, and you realize it’s actually ridiculous. How can anyone possibly fight with all that long hair flying everywhere?

tog reviewAnd don’t even get me started on those pants. They look great…till you realize that if this was real life, her pants would be falling off her butt, they’re slung so low! I can’t even look at them.

Girl, your pants are falling off!

And this is where my eye rolling began. Continue reading “Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas”

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Mass | Part II: Discussion

17927395This post is for my rambles and for the fangirls. Beware of spoilers ahead. It you want my non-spoiler opinions, see my review and Part I of this book here.

Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay. Wasn’t this sequel awesome?! In my opinion, it blew ACOTAR out of the water. I didn’t really care for the first book other than to acknowledge that Sarah J. Maas is a talented writer with a bright future ahead of her.

But there’s a lot I appreciated about this book that I’m sure many of you did as well, and I just have to gush about it to someone! Continue reading “A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Mass | Part II: Discussion”

Interview with Alexis Lampley: Author, Blogger, Entrepreneur

I’m pleased to announce our first official interview here at Fictional Fox! If you’ll look up at the menu bar, hopefully you’ll notice the new section entitled Bookpreneur. This section will not only have updates on my own entrepreneur adventures and DIY tips, but it is where I will be posting interviews with authors, bloggers, designers, and all the amazing people in the book world.

And an interview with Alexis Lampley is a fantastic way to kick this off!
