Heroes by Stephen Fry

The Greek Myths Reimagined - Follow up to Mythos I hadn't realized it was almost exactly a year ago I reviewed Mythos, as I had also listened to it as an advanced listening copy on Libro.fm!

The Heir Affair by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Sequel to The Royal We (spoilers ahead) I've found myself reading quite a bit of fiction this summer which is rare for me! Nonfiction readers don't fear, running the Nonfiction Book Club means that there will always be lots of nonfiction on my reading list!

Synopsis From the Front Flap:Rediscover the thrills, grandeur, and unabashed fun… Continue reading Mythos by Stephen Fry

Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

This review is SPOILER FREE! What feels like many years ago, I kept seeing this book cover that looked super cool. It was green and had a girl who looked like a total badass on the cover. Little did I know that it was the third in a new series that had, until then, been… Continue reading Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas

Favorite Reads of 2019 So Far

I've had a good reading year so far, better than previous years - I've only hated 3 books so far! But below are my favorites thus far - not necessarily published in 2019 but read in 2019. And surprisingly, only 1 work of nonfiction and 3 fiction. Range by David Epstein An enjoyable psychology/sociology minded… Continue reading Favorite Reads of 2019 So Far
