It’s that time of year again. The time of year where I get reflective about the year’s past (although is anyone really looking back at 2020 with anything other than disappointment, anger, and contempt?) and I start getting hopeful and excited about the year to come. Last year at this time, I hadn’t written much … Continue reading Looking forward to 2021
On this blog, I try to talk about the books that make me happy, or lacking that, books that give me a strong emotional response that I feel that I just have to talk about. I avoid sad subjects or books that I hate in order to promote a positive outlook on the world. If … Continue reading One Person, No Vote by Carol Anderson
I’m back (or at least, I hope I’m back.) The start of this school year has been super stressful and the last thing I seem to want to do at the end of the day is write. But, I miss it and so I hope that my inspiration and drive for updating more regularly has … Continue reading A Cuban Girl’s Guide to Tea and Tomorrow by Laura Taylor Namey

As it happened, I had a boatload waiting for me from NetGalley. Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade was the third one I … Continue reading Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade

When I originally decided to write this post, I wanted it to focus on my favorite in the series, book 2 - A Court of Mist and Fury. I had Mr. Librarian read an early draft and his biggest critique was that I was spending so much time explaining and exploring book 1, that I … Continue reading An ode to… A Court of Thorns and Roses
Writing about The Hating Game has made me think about the sheer number of enemies-to-lovers books I’ve read. And how many I love! So I consulted my partner-in-books, my BFF, who also LOVES this trope, to create a Top 5 list of our favorites!
