The Prison Healer: The Audacity of this Book

Ummmmmmm, who gave this book the right to end the way it did? I am quite shooketh. I had been eyeing The Prison Healer for some time, and when I saw it on the shelf, I knew I had to read it. However, I really didn’t know what to expect from this YA novel… especiallyContinue reading “The Prison Healer: The Audacity of this Book”

The Bridge Kingdom: Why Haven’t You Read This Yet?

Howdy folks, ’tis I… back again from my mini unintended blogging break. The entire month of June has been wildly busy, so I sadly haven’t had much time to read, but c’est la vie! That is life, and now I’m back and vibing. Honestly, I started The Bridge Kingdom several weeks ago, and I wasContinue reading “The Bridge Kingdom: Why Haven’t You Read This Yet?”

These Violent Delights – My Teenage Heart is Racing

Like any other twenty-something, I love me some angsty forbidden love, the 1920s, and gangsters, and These Violent Delights had all of that and more. I thoroughly enjoyed this YA novel, and I’m glad I finally read it after it sat on my TBR list for some time. Set in Shanghai in 1926, this bookContinue reading “These Violent Delights – My Teenage Heart is Racing”

The Crown of Gilded Headach – I Mean, Bones

Ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Let me paint a picture in your head… you find a new restaurant, and at that restaurant you try the most delicious meal you’ve had in a long time. Your days afterward are spent remembering every second of that meal, the taste, the satisfaction.

The Priory of the Orange Tree – I’m Just Here for the Dragons, tbh

I’m aliiiiiiiive! Friends, I’m back from my weeks of reading The Priory of the Orange Tree. This book was an undertaking, and I do not say that lightly. Big books are the best, and normally I love to brag as much as any bookworm about how quickly I can make it through large books likeContinue reading “The Priory of the Orange Tree – I’m Just Here for the Dragons, tbh”

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue: A Punch to the Gut (But Like a Good One)

Damn if this was not one of the best books I’ve ever read. Seriously. I was neck deep in a reading slump, struggling to stay afloat, and Addie LaRue gave me life. Addie LaRue was born on March 10, 1691, in Villon, France. She was a wild child, a dreamer, and she was not satisfiedContinue reading “The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue: A Punch to the Gut (But Like a Good One)”

Red Queen – Am I Into It? Or Am I Still Trying to Fill a Void?

I’ve had the Red Queen series on my TBR pile for a looooonnnggg time, maybe even years, and I’ve finally decided to pick it up and dive on into it. I’m a huge fan of Victoria Aveyard as a person, and I love all of her writing tips that she’s so open about on Instagram.Continue reading “Red Queen – Am I Into It? Or Am I Still Trying to Fill a Void?”

The Once and Future Witches – A Feminist Masterpiece

I’m back on my witch shit, and let me tell you: this book was fantastic. I was blown away by the beautiful writing and the powerful message behind the story. The Once and Future Witches isn’t just a book about the tales of witchcraft, but a book about what it means to be a womanContinue reading “The Once and Future Witches – A Feminist Masterpiece”

The Lamplighters – A Job for Mystery, Inc.

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of The Lamplighters to dive into (pun intended), and it was honestly a refreshing change up from my usual fantasy books. To start this off, I know absolutely nothing about Lighthouses. Yo girl lives in landlocked Colorado, so I find this as no surprise. In fact, myContinue reading “The Lamplighters – A Job for Mystery, Inc.”
