BOOK REVIEW: THE SAFE PLACE by Anna Downes

 Another book from my current wave of catching up with NetGalley, it has the usual added charm of "I don't remember why I picked this up, but let's find out!" And as I mentioned to the author on Twitter when I'd finished, I'm so upset with myself for not reading this sooner. THE SAFE PLACE … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE SAFE PLACE by Anna Downes

BOOK REVIEW: THE FOUR PROFOUND WEAVES by R. B. Lemberg

So to present me with a book proclaiming itself to be a queer fairy tale and expect me not to read it is pretty ridiculous. I haven't spent much time (yet) seeking out queer fiction, though the pieces I've found (or the books I've founds pieces in) have all been pretty good so far, and … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE FOUR PROFOUND WEAVES by R. B. Lemberg

BOOK REVIEW: THE WORLD CAME TO US by Molly D. Campbell

A return author to my shelves! This is a long overdue review (my apologies to the author!) but I felt like every time I sat down to write something about it, I couldn't quite find the words. I was first introduced to Campbell as an author through Story Plant, the publisher she's worked with. A … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE WORLD CAME TO US by Molly D. Campbell

BOOK REVIEW: THE ESCAPE ROOM by Megan Goldin

Another NetGalley book, reviewed later than intended. I picked it up as a library book recently--ran out of time--got it again... At that point, all you can do is hope that the book is going to be worth it. I'd already been disappointed by one I'd done this with; I wasn't ready for a second. … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE ESCAPE ROOM by Megan Goldin

BOOK REVIEW: KINGDOM OF EXILES by Maxym Martineau

I would have received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review if I'd been better at downloading things. As it is, I got it from my library. I'll have to admit, the description of "Assassin's Creed meets Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" is definitely enough to pique … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: KINGDOM OF EXILES by Maxym Martineau

BOOK REVIEW: VILLAINS NEVER DIE by Nick DeWolf

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.  Well, this review is about two months too late (I'm so sorry, Nick; I keep doing this to you) but better late than never is usually a good motto to stand by. Anyone who's seen some of my past … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: VILLAINS NEVER DIE by Nick DeWolf

BOOK REVIEW: THE HAZEL WOOD by Melissa Albert

When THE HAZEL WOOD came across my path, it absolutely sounded like it was my kind of book. Fairy tales, but the dark side of them, blending into reality. What wasn't there for me to enjoy? Plus, the cover art is absolutely stunning. One hundred percent I was into this book. And I was delighted … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE HAZEL WOOD by Melissa Albert

BOOK REVIEW: THE NOBLE THRONE by Yessi Smith and Logan Keys

I meant to have this review up a while ago, since I was lucky enough to snag an ARC of it, but life conspired against me (as is so often the case) and alas, I can only get it to you now. But a review! Woo! First review of 2018! I'll be completely upfront and … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE NOBLE THRONE by Yessi Smith and Logan Keys

BOOK REVIEW: AN HEIR TO THORNS AND STEEL by M.C.A. Hogarth

Guess what! Just what you've all been waiting for! ANOTHER MCAH REVIEW no but seriously, I've gotten a new trilogy of hers, and she's got a big promo for one of them right around now, and THIS IS THE TIME TO BE TALKING ABOUT MICAH. *coughs* Just saying. In any event, if you've been on … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: AN HEIR TO THORNS AND STEEL by M.C.A. Hogarth

BOOK REVIEW: WELCOME TO PARADISE by Rosalind James

I'm fairly certain I picked this up from a BookBub promotion probably a couple years ago now (okay, I just checked and I exaggerate, it's only been almost a year) but it's another that I have no clue why I picked it up. It's continuing on in my apparent interest in reality TV show style … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: WELCOME TO PARADISE by Rosalind James
