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 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.”

A Touch of Death – A Glimpse of What’s to Come?

Black Mirror meets the future in A Touch of Death, written by Rebecca Crunden. I’ll be honest, dystopians aren’t usually what I gravitate towards. There’s just something about the futuristic feel to them, the gloom and doom, the downfall of societies, that mostly stirs my anxieties instead of offers me escape. Like, we are justContinue reading “A Touch of Death – A Glimpse of What’s to Come?”

A Touch of Di… I mean, Darkness

Who doesn’t love Greek mythology? Really, it is one of my favorite topics to read about, and I’ve always been obsessed with the legends of the gods. That obsession lead me to A Touch of Darkness, which explores the legend of Hades and Persephone in a modern setting. There are many different variations to theContinue reading “A Touch of Di… I mean, Darkness”

Legendborn

Well, well, well, if it isn’t me… back from my reading coma. Last week was absolutely bonkers, with the inauguration and everything in between. I’m PUMPED to have Joe Biden as president, and last Wednesday was one of the happiest days of the past year for me… but any time a major political event happens,Continue reading “Legendborn”

The Duke & I: I Caved

Happy New Year friends! First book of 2021 is in the books, and I’m starting off the new year with The Duke & I. Curiosity got the better of me, as I don’t read many strictly romance novels, and I really wanted to read this book to compare it to the Netflix show (FOMO definitelyContinue reading “The Duke & I: I Caved”

My Novel Faves of 2020

What a damn year. Amidst all the chaos, it really wasn’t that bad. Personally, I think 2020 brought me perspective, and it has truly made me take a step back and realize what actually matters. Cliche, I know, but I have felt my internal focus shift in a way I haven’t felt before, and forContinue reading “My Novel Faves of 2020”
