I absolutely love reading old blog posts. Going through posts that I wrote back in 2017, my first year of blogging, just shows how much I’ve grown as a reader and writer since then. I reviewed the following books from March through May 2017, the first three months of Fangirl Fury. Many of these reviews were written when I didn’t have a blogging routine or post schedule. I remember after waking up a few mornings freshman year writing a post then posting it right then and there. I completely admit that going some of these early reviews has been a heart-warmingly cringe-worthy experience. Where are the photos? Why did I love that shade of pink so much?
We Are Okay by Nina LaCour (reviewed March 2017) – I’ve grown to share my thoughts and reviews on books that I didn’t love or like so much, but I am glad that my first book review was a book I truly loved. I’m still trying to figure out where the photo in this review went – I may have stripped my heart string lights from my dorm room wall and set them up a picnic table outside for a very first bookstagram.
Vicious by V.E. Schwab (reviewed March 2017) – I feel very validated in knowing that Vicious is one of the first books that I screamed about across the Internet because this book deserves all the screams and feels. Is anyone surprised that I proclaimed my love for Mitch and his chocolate milk drinking habits? Not only was Vicious one of my first book reviews, but it was my first V.E. Schwab book.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas (reviewed reread April 2017) – I reread A Court of Thorns and Roses then in anticipation for A Court of Wings and Ruin’s release. Upon this reread, I noticed more of The Beauty and the Beast elements and more importantly, that Tamlin really wasn’t a nice guy (before first reading ACOMAF, guess who originally wasn’t a Rhysand fan, ha ha ha…..)
Heartless by Marissa Meyer (reviewed April 2017)- Okay, I love how I took of a photo of this book in its naked glory. But why on a bench in front of my college library?? I don’t even want to think about how I must have positioned myself to take this photo??
