Sci Fi Friday: Falling in love with fantasy

It's been...quite some time since I've done a Sci Fi Friday post, and since I've been reading a hell of a lot of fantasy recently, and posted a list of books for reluctant readers, I started thinking about gateway books for one of my favorite genres: Fantasy. Specifically, fantasy novels targeted towards adults. This topic … Continue reading Sci Fi Friday: Falling in love with fantasy

Three Mini Reviews: Vespertine, Any Sign of Life, and Terciel & Elinor

Am I combining these three book reviews because I am a) woefully behind on my ARC reviews b) attempting to do a themed friday thingy c) feeling lazy or d) all of the above? If you selected d, then congrats! So what do these three books have in common besides being speculative fiction young adult … Continue reading Three Mini Reviews: Vespertine, Any Sign of Life, and Terciel & Elinor

Novella Time! 5 Mini Reviews

One I highly, highly enjoyed, and the other was underwhelming. So why am I lumping them together? I don't know! Okay, I do … Continue reading Two Mini Reviews: The Lost Girls and For All Time

Three Mini Reviews: Bad Witch Burning, Iron Widow and The Last Graduate

Okay, so aside from all three being fantasy (Iron Widow is science fiction, it's a stretch, I'm going for it), and the fact that The Last Graduate is adult not YA (surprise!), these three are in a review together for two reasons: 1) I am behind and have been procrastinating on these reviews and need … Continue reading Three Mini Reviews: Bad Witch Burning, Iron Widow and The Last Graduate

Book Review: Under the Whispering Door

Under the Whispering Door by TJ Klune 🌺🌺🌺🌺/5 It took you dying to find your humanity. It's hysterical if you think about it. Wallace Price was not, in his mind, a bad man. He liked nice suits.
