A Court of Silver Flames

A Court of Thorns and Roses #4 I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy A Court of Silver Flames as much as the first three books in the series, but ultimately my trust in Sarah J. Maas’ ability to redeem flawed characters made me realize there was no way I wouldn’t enjoy it! For… Continue reading A Court of Silver Flames

Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles

Kingdom of Cards #1 This is one review I've been meaning to post for a LONG time - I met Janella in January and asked for three advance copies of her book so that I could buddy read it with two colleagues, who both finished it long before I did and absolutely loved it! Synopsis… Continue reading Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles

Ink & Sigil by Kevin Hearne

First in a Spinoff Series of the Iron Druid Chronicles I love fantasy, but I discovered I don't read a lot of fantasy by cis white dudes. Because most of fantasy is written by them, I often go looking for stories by women, POC, or LGBTQIA+ authors. But occasionally, a description will nab me, or… Continue reading Ink & Sigil by Kevin Hearne

Monstress by Marjorie Liu & Sana Takeda

When I first started going to a real comic book store, I discovered that I have a love of reading comics issue by issue, instead of bound volumes. I still only get the comic book shop every few months or so, but this was the first comic I started reading by issue! Synopsis From the… Continue reading Monstress by Marjorie Liu & Sana Takeda

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Each night I plug in my phone and put on my cozy phones (flat headphones in a cozy headband so they don't hurt your ears, they're amazing) and choose and audiobook to fall asleep to. During this period of self-isolation and uncertainly, I've been listening to and re-listening to Nimona on near repeat. But how… Continue reading Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

A YA Week at Home

I've been doing very little serious reading while self-isolating at home the past two weeks. This is actually a good thing, because it means that I've been working so hard that I haven't had time to really settle into a book. I mean, I'd rather be reading, but right now I'm grateful to be one… Continue reading A YA Week at Home

The Adventure Zone 1: Here There Be Gerblins by The McElroys

Many of my Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) playing friends have told me how much they love The Adventure Zone. I'm not a big podcast person, but I do love a good fantasy graphic novel! So when the first volume was released, I decided to pick it up and give it a shot! If you want… Continue reading The Adventure Zone 1: Here There Be Gerblins by The McElroys

The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu

I almost posted another review today, but it's International Women's Day, so I knew I had to do a review of a book by one of my favorite female authors about one of my favorite women in history! Synopsis From the Jacket Flap:Born with a gift for music, Nannerl Mozart has just one wish: to… Continue reading The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu

Favorite Graphic Novels

In Sunday's review of Mythos, I mentioned I was struggling with writing reviews lately. I don't know what's been going on with me - maybe it's the fact that I've been reading parts of so many books and haven't finished as many as I'd like, or that the independent bookstore I work at has been… Continue reading Favorite Graphic Novels
