The Bear And The Nightingale

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden is the first book in the Winternight Trilogy. It was highly recommended by so many people, and it was definitely NOT overhyped. At the edge of the Russian wilderness, winter lasts most of the year and the snowdrifts from taller […]

King’s Cage

King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard was a book that I couldn’t wait to start reading. This review doesn’t include spoilers for this book, but it reveals information that you probably don’t want to read if you haven’t read the previous two books in the series. Mare Barrow is […]

Saint X

I received an ARC of this book from Bookish First. I am voluntarily providing an honest review. Saint X by Alexis Schaitkin was an interesting and thought provoking read. Claire is only seven years old when her college-age sister, Alison, disappears on the last night of their family […]

Sorcery Of Thorns

Sorcery of Thorns was an impulse read. I was in the library (one of my favorite places), and picked it up. The premise sounded interesting, and I’m certainly a sucker for books about people who love books. Elisabeth has always known that all sorcerers are evil as surely […]

King Of Scars

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo is the first in a duology, but it’s related to the Shadow and Bone trilogy and the Six of Crows duology. If you haven’t read those, you’ll probably want to read those before getting into this one, since this book WILL reveal […]

Pan

Pan by Gina L. Maxwell is the first book in the Neverland series. I had already read Hook, and multiple people had been raving about this one, so I had to get my hands on it. I see what all the fuss is about now. TRIGGER WARNING: child […]

Legendary

After reading Caraval last month and feeling like it just didn’t live up to the hype, I was on the fence about reading Legendary, the second book in the series by Stephanie Garber. Fortunately, some people strongly urged me to give it a try, telling me that it […]

We Set The Dark On Fire

We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia immediately caught my eye with the beautiful cover. I was intrigued by the story too, once I could tear my eyes away from the front of the book. At the Medio School for Girls, distinguished young women are […]

Night

Night by Elie Wiesel is not one of those books people read for enjoyment. It’s a book to be read because it’s about history, humanity, hate, religion, and evil. It’s particularly relevant to me because as a Jewish woman and the daughter of a Holocaust survivor it’s part […]

Crown Of Midnight

Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas is the second book in the Throne of Glass series. While Throne of Glass didn’t end on a cliffhanger, I was looking to find out what happened next in the story. TRIGGER WARNING: Reference to rape, gore Assassin Celaena Sardothien won […]
