  • in which I am incapable of keeping to a schedule
    I had the best intentions really, updating once a week. That meant four posts a month…but somehow I fell off the wagon. I can never remember to post my reviews (oops!) so I need to actually buckle down and create a schedule. Or pre-plan posts. Something.
  • One Last Stop; a queer romance
    A f/f rom-com with a paranormal element — and a beautiful story that makes you smile. While I think RWRB is still better, this one is no sluggish second book.
  • Fellowship of the Ring Tag // book tag
    I’ve been tagged to do the Fellowship of the Ring book tag! I answer the questions set forth…
  • A Year In… // sequels this year
    Welcome, welcome. This particular “A Year In” is dedicated to sequels. There were quite a few sequels out this year, which is always exciting. And it is only May, which means there are more yet to come. This post discusses the sequels I have read so far this year in hopes of finding out if I have any desire to read the remaining series, or give them a second chance.
  • Updating My Goodreads // an organization attempt
    Updating my Goodreads gives me pleasure; although not so much organizing it. I haven’t done this in a hot minute, but I wanted to go through everything on my Goodreads shelf and see what I could remove, add or reorganize.
  • Ariadne \\ a greek myth retelling
    When we do get women in myth they are usually evil or temptresses or some other variety of a woman who is considered bad or wrong. Much like Circe, Ariadne takes the myth as we know it and turns it into a powerful look at sexism and empowerment.
  • March 2021 | a month in review
    March 2021, a month in review. What did I get up to this month bookish wise? From reading to posting and everything inbetween.
  • This Golden Flame // a romance-less sci fi tale
    This Golden Flame is a romance-less sci fi story. However, it did not work for me for a multitude of reasons.
  • Book Box Subscription Review
    I’ve been wanting to put something together for awhile, but I needed some more time to try the boxes and get a feel for what they were offering. I’ve compiled my thoughts on the boxes I have gotten here. These are just personal opinions, so YMMV.
  • Namesake || A Stunning Conclusion
    I was quite excited to get back to this world, because it was left on a bit of a cliffhanger, and I wondered what was going to happen in the next book and how many of the loose ends would be wrapped up. I feel overall that this book was an extremely satisfying conclusion to the first book.
  • Sweet & Bitter Magic || Blog Tour
    This is one of those books I was really excited for. Witches, great summary, queer and a beautiful cover. And I very much enjoyed it.
  • Covet, Crave #3 | Blog Tour Promo
    This is a promo post for Covet by Tracy Wolff. Part of the book tour for Turn the Page.
