How have you been doing? How has the second month of 2019 been treating you? I feel like I open every one of these posts talking about me, but I’d thought I’d switch it up today.
How are you?
Oh, you’re still here! That’s nice, you actually do want to read about me. *sends massive hugs* WELL LET ME TELL YOU. IT HAS BEEN A MONTH. A SHORT ONE. BUT STILL A MONTH.
It wasn’t all too bad reading wise, but Real-Life Rendz is caught in the middle of storm right now. I shouldn’t even be writing this post right now yet..here I am.
What Rendz Read
Wow I umm thought I had a better reading month than this, but I guess not. I apparently didn’t even remember I had a TBR because literally none of it got done!
Enchantée by Gita Trelease
I actually had a lot of fun with this one. My Full Review
The Case for Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro
This was an emergency pick-up read because I felt like I wasn’t getting anything from my YA fantasy picks. And it was truly a great refresher, I loved it so much. Mini review to come
Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds
Another spontaneous read that was amazing! I even listened to the audiobook, which I think made the whole experience even better. Mini review to come.
The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli
This was a buddy read, with the fabulous Sha @ Book Princess Reviews. I had so much fun reading with Sha, not to mention the book was INCREDIBLE! Full review to come.
Remember when I made my 2019 reading goals…? Remember when I said I would relax my requesting game this year so I wouldn’t get stuck with so many ARCs that would eventually go unread? Do you remember that?
Well I’m a liar. Clearly. And went overboard as usual.

October 2019 here I come!!!!!!!!!
I won a giveaway and I had to do math!!!
So Torteen holds IG contests all the time and this past month I actually won! So when they contacted me for my deets and told me that because I live in Canada I had to do a math test over the phone I was like !!!!! I DON’T WANT THE BOOK THAT MUCH!
But I did the test. And needless to say it went…well. Awkward, but well. I uhh got stuck on the final question and there was this long pause of me trying to think and the Torteen publicist waiting for my answer.
Thankfully I got them all right and I got the book, The Telsa Legacy by K. K. Perez!
I Attended Frenzy Presents
A little get together of all the local bloggers at the HarperCollins Canada HQ. It was a morning filled of books and talking about how excited we are for some of their spring titles! I might still do a wrap-up post, if I have time later this month, but all you need to know is that it was so much fun and they have so many great books coming!
The Jonas Brothers are back!
Yeah. I won’t lie. Tween Rendz was all over the Jonas Brothers. And she still kinda is. I mean they have some major BOPS. And while I like their new song, this whole week has been filled with me going through all my old favourites and reminiscing about the good ol’ times.
