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 […]

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 […]

February 2020 New Releases

I wasn’t super thrilled about new books being released in January, at least not excited enough to create a post dedicated to them. But February is a completely different story. There’s quite a few books that I’m most certainly looking forward to! Many of them are in the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Glass Sword

I couldn’t wait to get started on Glass Sword (book #2 in the Red Queen series) by Victoria Aveyard, especially since I loved Red Queen so much. If you’ve read book #1, you’ll understand my overwhelming urge to ignore my looming TBR pile in favor of reading this […]

Belle Révolte

I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley. I am providing my review voluntarily. Belle Révolte by Linsey Miller was high on my list of books coming out in 2020 that I was excited to read. I didn’t even realize until I was already reading it that […]
