The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Holton

An unapologetic feminist novel featuring badass lady pirates?!?!  Well played, India Holton.  You get me.  You really do. I've jumped ahead. Let me rewind a bit. Close your eyes and imagine back a few weeks ago. Past Cheryl was excited when this book finally made it to the top of my TBR. I finally picked … Continue reading The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels by India Holton

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Strap in, everyone.  It’s going to be a long one.

The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune

When I finished this book, my first thought was that this was the most beautiful book I had ever read! Frankly, I’m not even sure how to start this post.  I’m actually struggling to find the words to describe this book.  And, you know it's good when I HAVE NO WORDS! ME! NO WORDS!

Before we get to that, if you haven’t discovered Brigid Kemmerer, you should.  I have liked every book of hers I’ve read … Continue reading An ode to… the Cursebreakers series

Looking forward to 2021

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

An ode to… A Court of Thorns and Roses

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
