Shatter Me Series (1-3) Mini Reviews! – In Preparation of my First Read Through of Restore Me!!!!!

Ok, so, Restore Me has been out for like two weeks now and I still haven’t read it. The school has been killing me and I’ve only been able to sneak a few chapters in here and there, and I really wanted to reread the series before getting into book four.

So, after a week of being jealous at all the restore Me reviews, I can finally sit down and read it for myself! But first, here are my mini-reviews for the rest of the series, where I either rant or rave about all my emotions during this reread.

Ice Wolves – A Middle-Grade Debut (A Review)






Everyone in Vallen knows that ice wolves and scorch dragons are sworn enemies who live deeply separate lives.

So when twelve-year-old orphan Anders takes one elemental form and his twin sister, Rayna, takes another, he wonders whether they are even related. Still, whether or not they’re family, Rayna is Anders’s only true friend. She’s nothing like the brutal, cruel dragons who claimed her as one of their own and stole her away.

In order to rescue her, Anders must enlist at the foreboding Ulfar Academy, a school for young wolves that values loyalty to the pack above all else. But for Anders, loyalty is more complicated than obedience, and friendship is the most powerful shapeshifting force of all. Continue reading “Ice Wolves – A Middle-Grade Debut (A Review)”

Children’s Books to Read as an Adult

I usually have something to say before going into these things, but for the life of me, I can’t think of anything.

I like children’s books, I guess. I think I like them now more than I did when I was a child. That may have had to do with the fact that as a child I hated reading. I know, I know! How could I? But, worry not, I realized the error of my ways, hence the book blog I’m now running.

Maybe that’s what this book blog really is. Maybe this is the source of my obsessive book buying! It’s possible that all this time I’ve just been trying to compensate for all those years I spent hating books!

OMG! Guys! I think I just figured it all out! I’ve just unlocked the meaning of my subconscious!  Looks like I won’t be needing that psychology degree after all!

Yay me! Freud would be proud!

**quietly wonders how many other things in my life are due to my early childhood relationship with books?**

But hey, look at that! I guess I did find something to say after all!

Anyway, let’s get on to the list!

Are Young Adult Trilogies Dying Off? And Would it Be So Bad If They Were? (A Discussion)

Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday!

Today, I make this post to discuss a topic that affects us all: the young adult trilogy!

Are young adult trilogies dying off? And if so, is that really a bad thing?

There are certain things for which YA is typically known for. Some of these things are good. For example, a lot of diversity and kickass female protagonists.  Most of these things though are not so good. Let me list them off for you.

  •  Government toppling chose ones who discover their power/royal lineage/dark family secret when they turn 16
  • Dead/missing/evil parents
  • Love triangles
  • Insta-love
  • The trilogy

Yeah, that’s right. For some odd reason that I have yet to comprehend, young adult authors have consistently felt the need to turn their stories into three books…until now!

So, to show my appreciation, I have decided to give a little something back! I hosted a giveaway when I got my first 100 followers, then when I got 300 followers, now, as per tradition, I am hosting one to thank you all for 500 followers!

I will be giving away a book of your choosing, valued $15 or less, from Book Depository to one lucky winner! The giveaway will run from today, March 12, 2018, and will end on April 13, 2018!

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is follow The Book Cover Girl on WordPress!  For a higher chance of winning and to get more entries, you can also follow me on other social media! All that info will be on the Rafflecopter link down below!


Now, some rules before you rush into it!

You must be 13 years or older to participate or have parent’s permission. I don’t want to get in trouble with your parents for sending things to your house!!!

There will be ONE winner who will be chosen at random on April 13 and will be contacted 24-48 hours after the end of the giveaway. If the winner does not respond to the email 48 hours after contact, a new winner will be selected. If that winner does not respond, then yet another will be picked, and so forth until a winner replies.

In one previous giveaway, I had gone all the way up to four winners because the first three didn’t reply. Let’s not repeat that event, it was very frustrating, so if you win, please reply to the email!!! Why would you not want free books!?!? I would love free books!!

All people are welcome to participate. This giveaway is open internationally, so long as it is a country where Book Depository can deliver! The funds for the books will be provided by me alone. I am not in league with Book Depository, nor am I being sponsored by any outside party.
The giveaway is for a $15 value to be spent however the winner pleases on the Book Depository website ONLY. The winner may choose any books, bookmarks, or whatever Book Depository merchandise, so long as it does NOT exceed $15.
When the winner is chosen I will email them to ask which book they want from the website and I will purchase and ship it to the address provided by the winner. The address will not be shared with anyone else and will be deleted after the order has shipped. If you don’t want to share your address, which I totally understand, be able to provide a P.O. Box or something else.
Once the purchase is complete and shipped I will send the winner the Book Depository confirmation and The Book Cover Girls will NOT be responsible for the package thereafter. If the package is damaged or lost I will contact Book Depository for you but I will hold no responsibility for it, nor will I pay to replace it!!
 The giveaway will run from March 12, 2018, to April 13, 2018, at midnight EST.
 Good luck to you all!!


Once again, Thank you all!

So I Guess Bloglovin’ Has Always Been a Thing? – A Random Update

A few days ago, like on Monday or so, I discovered that there was such a thing as Bloglovin’. I mean, I had seen people mention it on their blogs and stuff but I never paid any mind to it. Then, out of curiosity, I clicked on someone’s Bloglovin’ button. Then, out of more curiosity, I searched up my blog on the site, and lo and behold, there it was! I didn’t have a Bloglovin’ account so I made one in order to claim my blog as my own. And now here we are.

Maybe I’m the only one who didn’t know about this site because I tend to be completely out of it sometimes, but did you all know that Bloglovin’ was a thing? It has all the blogs in one place, even non-Wordpress blogs, which is extremely convenient.You can follow all your favorite blogs and view all their content in one place! I wish I would have found this out sooner, I could have been on Bloglovin’ all along!

But, alas, at least I on it now, and you should be too if this is something that interests you!

It’s possible that all of you probably already knew about this and I’m just late to the party. But, if even one person viewed this and discovered something new that I guess all is good and I’ve somehow contributed to the world.

So, now that it’s all said and done, feel free to follow me on Bloglovin’. I’d love yet another platform in which to interact with you guys!

American Panda – Cute, Heartwarming and Totally Hilarious! (A Review)







At seventeen, Mei should be in high school, but skipping fourth grade was part of her parents’ master plan. Now a freshman at MIT, she is on track to fulfill the rest of this predetermined future: become a doctor, marry a preapproved Taiwanese Ivy Leaguer, produce a litter of babies.

With everything her parents have sacrificed to make her cushy life a reality, Mei can’t bring herself to tell them the truth–that she (1) hates germs, (2) falls asleep in biology lectures, and (3) has a crush on her classmate Darren Takahashi, who is decidedly not Taiwanese.

But when Mei reconnects with her brother, Xing, who is estranged from the family for dating the wrong woman, Mei starts to wonder if all the secrets are truly worth it. Can she find a way to be herself, whoever that is, before her web of lies unravels?
