I'm so excited by these three new releases that look like they have that Charmed (the original) feel: the frothiness of chick lit with the bite of urban fantasy! Love it! Also, seeing some popular authors dip their toe into paranormal witchy romance is just delightful...I sense a trend! So here are a couple recent … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Halloween Freebie!
Earlier this month I participated in a readathon with my Goodreads book club, The Procrastinators Book Club, in an attempt to read seven books in seven days. Spoiler alert: I did it! But not without reading some novellas, because I had several ARCs and a couple from the library that I wanted to read before … Continue reading Novella Time! 5 Mini Reviews
Light From Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki 🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺/5 Shizuka Satomi was once the best violinist in the world—until she lost her talent and made a deal with the devil.

Activation Degradation by Marina Lostetter 🌺🌺🌺🌺/5 "A body is a body," Aimsley said, echoing Doc, perhaps truly understanding what they'd meant for the first time. "It's the person that matters." From the minute Unit 4 is activated, something isn't right. Its helper is panicking, something is attacking the station (which supplies most of Earth's energy … Continue reading Book Review: Activation Degradation
Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is my absolute privilege and pleasure to say that it is now hosted by Meeghan reads!! I wasn't really feeling the Top 10 prompt this week (bookish settings...I feel like I did something similar), and Meegah's prompt for this week was really speaking to … Continue reading Top 5 Tuesday: Books That Scared Me
These two books have absolutely nothing in common other than they are YA and deal with the concept of time. One is about teenage vampires, the other about reincarnation, destinies and love. 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
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week is a freebie, and since the Afghanistan withdrawal … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie!
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
Lots of Young Adult releases in the final quarter of 2021, and after the huge amount of YA released in September, I am feeling a little overwhelmed. These are 22 new releases I'm most excited to read, although there are quite a few more coming out. The majority are fantasy (or science fiction), but there … Continue reading Upcoming YA, October-December 2021
