Audio Review: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

Audio Review: The Midnight Library by Matt Haig

I’ll be the first to admit that this book wasn’t at ALL what I was expecting, but I enjoyed it all the same. When reading the blurb the first time, I thought “cool, a sci-fi novel that lets you slide through different dimensions and times.” I think I was expecting something along the lines of […]

Review: Feather and Flame by Livia Blackburne

Review: Feather and Flame by Livia Blackburne

I am really enjoying The Queen’s Council! Each book is about a different Disney princess, what happens after their happily ever after and end credits roll, and a continuation of their stories. Feather and Flame by continues Mulan’s story, picking up several years after she saved the emperor. Action packed and full of adventure, the […]

#TBRChallenge ~ Cold Summer by Gwen Cole

***DNF @ 36%*** I really wanted to like this one. I even picked it as my TBR read for this month’s prompt. However it just isn’t working for me. Cold Summer by  is a contemporary romance with time travel mixed in. Told in dual POV, Kale’s struggles unfold as he begins to lose his grip on […]

Review: Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater

Absolutely loved this continuation of Merida’s story! Bravely by isn’t a retelling of Disney’s Brave, but a continuation, picking up a few years after the events of the movie. Merida is stuck, not changing, and so is the rest of Castle Dunbroch. They are comfortable in their routines, living their lives in a bubble, ignoring […]

Audio Review: Inheritance by Katharine McGee

Audio Review: Inheritance by Katharine McGee

I have a confession to make. I don’t typically read series novellas. Usually I skip them and only read if I’m super invested in the series. Inheritance by is a prequel novella to her series which finally gives readers the full inside scoop of the infamous graduation party night. This night is the catalyst for […]

Audio Review: Majesty by Katharine McGee

Audio Review: Majesty by Katharine McGee

You know the saying “a train wreck you can’t look away from”? That is this book to a tee! I devoured it, unable to bring myself to put it down. Majesty by is the second installment of her series which reinvents American history by crowning George Washington instead of electing him president. Following the current […]

Audio Review: Reputation by Lex Croucher

Audio Review: Reputation by Lex Croucher

One reviewer said that this book is “Mean Girls meets Bridgerton,” and I have never seen a more accurate description/comparison for a book. Reputation by is a Regency-era inspired book that reads more like a contemporary YA. I don’t typically read contemporary YA, though sometimes the drama is compelling enough to keep me engrossed as […]

The Weekend Binge: Viking Academy by S.T. Bende

Happy Saturday y’all! Our Weekend Reads feature will be getting an overhaul soon along with a new name: The Weekend Binge. Why the change? I enjoy posting on the weekends, and sometimes it’s just a review, sometimes it’s a series review, other times it’s about what I’m currently watching. Regardless, I wanted somewhere to feature […]
