Book Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Author: Adrienne Young
Series: Stand-Alone 
Cover: Cover is alright. The model doesn't really match up with what I thought Eelyn would look like. I feel like she has so much hair compared to the book description.
Rating: 4/5 This book took a while for it to get interesting. I think it took about halfway through the book for me to start getting invested.

My Vacation in Japan!

Happy Friday everyone!

Ever since I was a little kid reading manga and watching anime, I've always wanted to visit the beautiful country of Japan. I was able to spend a week in Japan and I have to say that I loved every second of it. I visited a total of five cities in Japan, Osaka, Kobe, Hamamatsu, Nagoya, and Tokyo. Since I visited mostly south Japan I hope to visit the northern side of Japan one day. Sorry for posting a bit later than scheduled. Any who, enjoy the pictures of Japan! Shameless plug of my Instagram since I posted pics there too: @elleinked

Book Review: Peter Green and the Unliving Academy: This Book is Full of Dead People by Angelina Allsop

Author: Angelina Allsop
Series: Book 1 in The Unliving Chronicles 
Cover: This is such a cute cover. Love the art work of this design. I gotta say poor Pete xD He looks so terrified.
Rating: 3/5 I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Overall, I did enjoy the book. I do feel like this book is intended for someone a bit younger than I am. It reminds me of The Children of the Red King series, although they're two very different books.

My Vacation in Vietnam!

Hello everyone. Happy Sunday!

So last month I took a month long vacation in Vietnam & Japan. It was a very long trip and I was definitely homesick. Although it was great and fun, there are a couple of BRUTAL things you have to deal with. For fun (not fun), I counted all the hours I was in the plane for and the total was *drum roll*... 42 HOURS... Yup, I was flying for 42 hours total. The total time for layover was 16 hours. 

Now, onto the more fun stuff, Vietnam!! It feels so weird coming from Seattle, WA at a nice ~50F (~10C) weather to Vietnam which was a blazing 85F (30C) AT NIGHT . I was wearing jeans and a jacket, sweating like I just came out of the shower inside the airport where they have AC. So, that was very nice lol... Overall, I don't have many pictures of Vietnam but I'll post as many as I can here. There is a lot of stealing in Vietnam, especially with phones, so anywhere I went, my phone was in my awesome fanny pack.

Commissioned Artwork by @elliemaplefox

Hello everyone!!

So I was getting bored with my old avatar. I really do love my old one and it'll always have a place in my heart because it's the first avatar ever, but I figured I needed to change things up a bit. I decided that every year, I'll try and get myself a new avatar made by a new artist. I love how every artist has a different style. So here is the new avatar down below :)!

Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday~

Alright, I am really jet lagged so excuse any gibberish that may or may not make sense as I type this. I literally fell asleep at 6pm and now typing this at 12:30am :D because I can't sleep...(send help)... ORIGINALLY, I was planning to blog while I was on vacation, but things did not turn out as I planned. So this is what happened...
