The Minis: The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

Welcome to a mini, bite-sized review of The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden! I feel like I can't properly review follow-up books in series, because I feel like they only make sense in contrast with the first book, so I think doing mini-reviews for them makes sense. The Girl in the Tower is… Continue reading The Minis: The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

A Local Election and a Romance in the Making: Yes, No, Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed

I was super excited to get to read this one early. I really like Becky Albertalli, I love Simon vs. (wasn't a huge fan of Leah and I did not really like What If It's Us, but still) and I really like the fact that this was co-written by Aisha Saeed. I haven't read her… Continue reading A Local Election and a Romance in the Making: Yes, No, Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed

I think it's pretty much impossible for me to not like her novels. Contemporary YA isn't really a genre I reach that much for anymore, but her… Continue reading 90s Radio Show, a Play-Pretend Game & All the Feels: Lucky Caller by Emma Mills

Review: The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

I cannot believe that I actually finished a series I started while I was blogging. I haven't finished a lot of series ever since I started getting into blogging and the bookish community, but The Folk of the Air series is one that really gripped me from the first book. I always thought of my… Continue reading Review: The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black

Review: Three Women by Lisa Taddeo

I am gonna skip the apologies for being MIA. Firstly, I am going to be coming and going sporadically, mostly focusing on reviews, since this is the only kind of thing I have time for now. I hope that's okay. In the meantime, I have gotten... more adjusted to audiobooks (I still don't like them… Continue reading Review: Three Women by Lisa Taddeo
