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: 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: THE PATH KEEPER by N.J. Simmonds

Thank you to NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review! Yet again, I prove myself incapable to keep my own time frames, and ran out of time on this book before it was archived. I swear, every time I get a book on NetGalley, life immediately decides that … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE PATH KEEPER by N.J. Simmonds

BOOK REVIEWS: ….uh, several

So I haven't been reading a ton, but I've been reading enough that I feel bad not having put anything up here lately. I've been doing a lot more and haven't quite found the balance I want between them all, hence the radio silence on here. As I always say, I'm hoping to get my … Continue reading BOOK REVIEWS: ….uh, several

BOOK REVIEW: THE 7 1/2 DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE by Stuart Turton

I'm from a family of readers, and my father has always been the one who when you tell him that he HAS to read a book, it makes him less likely to actually read it. I've inherited a lot of this from him. But as much as both of my parents love to toss books … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE 7 1/2 DEATHS OF EVELYN HARDCASTLE by Stuart Turton

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 LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE by M. F. Sullivan

I can't for the life of me remember where exactly I found this book. I know it was a NetGalley book that got lost to the annals of archives, and I had to go back through and track it down again so that I could read it and review it. (Not that I've done a … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: THE LIGHTNING STENOGRAPHY DEVICE by M. F. Sullivan

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: BEFORE WE WERE YOURS by Lisa Wingate

I was provided an ARC of this book free of charge by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I'm always fascinated by books that include real-life history and stories in them. The "Dear America" diaries were some of my favorites growing up, and it's always been one of my favorite ways to learn history. … Continue reading BOOK REVIEW: BEFORE WE WERE YOURS by Lisa Wingate
