Can’t Wait Wednesday

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings based on Waiting on Wednesday that was created and run by Breaking the Spine where each Wednesday you get to showcase a book that you are really looking forward to and that has yet to be released.  This week, I’ve chosen Blood & Honey by Shelby […]

The Twitter Book Community is Toxic

The Twitter Book Community is Toxic

I’ve been waiting for quite a while to write this post, because I know its going to ruffle feathers. But at this point, I really don’t care. I’m going to write this post and I’m going to say it – the Twitter book community is toxic. I know, I know, you don’t think so. But […]

#BlackLivesMatter

#BlackLivesMatter

I haven’t posted any reviews for a few days and I’ve taken a break from social media. (I don’t consider blogging to be social media if it’s your blog is your entire website.) Part of the reason for this is the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Social media sites are beginning to suppress the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag – I […]

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

Emergency Contact by Mary H.K. Choi

How to Get Books While in Quarantine

If you’re anything like me, your local, state, or federal governments have issued shelter-in-place or stay-at-home orders.

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

The Toll by Neal Shusterman

I’m going to admit, I was a bit confused when this book first started. I didn’t realize there was a time gap because I hadn’t read the blurb. I’d figured they’d have immediately started trying to salvage Endura, but clearly not. I’m going to admit this right now, I can’t stand Goddard. He’s egotistical, he’s […]

Blood Heir by Amélie Wen Zhao

Blood Heir by Amélie Wen Zhao

In case you didn’t know, this book is basically a retelling of Anastasia with magic and fantasy built in. Let me tell you, it works. I love the concept of the Affinites and their affinities. I love that it isn’t just your basic elements, but that Affinites could have any number of things for their […]
