ARC Review: Sisters of Shadow and Light | Talk About Leveling Up

I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Miss Larson’s first book, Defy, and I really enjoyed it. I still need to finish that trilogy, but I genuinely became a fan of Larson’s. It was so heartwarming and exciting to pick up her newest book and see how much her writing has grown. I absolutely […]

ARC Review: Romanov | It’s Not What You Expect

I was really excited about Romanov. It had a great start and the story moved along at a great clip, not too fast or too slow. The writing was good. I enjoyed the writing and I would read another one of Nadine Brandes’ books. However, I didn’t love this story like I had hoped I […]

Review: The Vine Witch | Tale of Wine or Something… Else?

What an opening. Honestly, this book had me hooked from the start, but I didn’t really get into it until I was about 100 pages in. This starts out as a seemingly innocuous tale of witches making wine, but grows into something much deadlier. That ending had me SPOOKED. There is no denying it. The […]

Update #2: Traitors & Tyrants Draft 5 Revisions

All right, here we are week since my last writing update on the blog. Right now I’m waiting for my writing vlog videos to do the thing so I figured I’d write a blog post so I can also listen to an audiobook. 😂 I didn’t do a great job tracking my daily progress so […]

Update #1: Traitors & Tyrants Draft 5 Revisions

I’m not really sure where I last left y’all with an update so in case anyone was wondering, I am still working on Traitors & Tyrants. 😂 At this point it will probably haunt me in my grave if I don’t finish it. But I’m very hopeful. I wanted to have revisions done or nearly […]

October Plans

Happy October! It’s one of my favorite months of the year! I love autumn and watching Halloween movies (nothing too crazy though). Lately I’ve been watching some crime documentaries. I just finished watching The Innocent Man and it was crazy and super interesting. As far as reading goes, I’ve been in a weird funk for the […]

Mini Reviews: The Haunting of Hill House & Avatar the Last Airbender: The Lost Adventures

I finally read The Haunting of Hill House last Sunday and I was really disappointed. I felt like it could have been spookier than it actually was. Some of the dialogue was weird and at least one if not multiple characters were laughing during the spooky parts, which really ruined the atmosphere for me. Eleanor […]

ARC Mini Reviews | Kriss: The Gift of Wrath & Elma, a Bear’s Life

I really liked the premise for this graphic novel; I think it had a lot going for it. However, I felt like the story was a bit rushed and Kriss’s story could have been a lot more flushed out than it was. The art was fine, but I wish there had been more reaction panels […]

Review: Sorcery of Thorns | Lets Live in a Library

Sorcery of Thorns has a pretty good premise. Elisabeth lives in a library and wants to become a warden so she can protect the grimoires there. The books are, for intents and purposes, alive. If they’re damaged, then they turn into fearsome beasts, Maleficts. Destroying a Malefict means destroying the book forever, and grimoires can […]

ARC Review: House of Salt and Sorrows | A Clever Twist on a Tale

I have only ever read one other retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses and I loved it. So I admit that I had very high expectations for this book. I think that overall, this book delivered. The book was perfectly balanced between the light and silliness of little girls and sisters, and the darkness creeping […]
