Top 5 Books I Didn’t Get to in 2018

Oh, geez. Now all of the shame comes out. Welcome back to Top 5 Tuesday, something I haven't participated in for a hot minute because life has been over-the-top insane. As always, it's hosted by Shannah @ Bionic Book Worm and we're here to judge each other. Harshly. Anyway. My Lady Jane - Brodi Ashton, Cynthia … Continue reading Top 5 Books I Didn’t Get to in 2018

First Impression Friday: “Grail of the Grimoire”by J. S. Sterling

This is a book I won a free copy of through LibraryThing. (I'd heard it was better for getting free books than GoodReads, and so far I've won three in the past week so that seems to be panning out!) From Amazon: In the 12th century, Cassandra is likely to be burned at the stake … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Grail of the Grimoire”by J. S. Sterling

Book Review: “The Frame-Up”

I'm going apologize in advance for this review, because the majority of this is going to be dissecting the main character, MG, and why she's is the worst main character I've ever read, second only to Jazz from Artemis. If you want to skip to my review of the actual story, scroll down to the last … Continue reading Book Review: “The Frame-Up”

November Wrap-Up

It's been a long time since I've done a wrap-up post, but I feel like November was spectacular enough to warrant one. So many things happened this month! Not all of them are book-related, of course, but since this has become more of a ramble about my life in general, might as well share everything, … Continue reading November Wrap-Up

First Impression Friday: “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Backman

This is another book I bought months ago and am just getting around to reading, thanks to the thesis work that previously took up all of my free time. I was going to get A Man Called Ove, but after reading the first two chapters I found that I couldn't stomach it and put it back … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry” by Fredrik Backman

Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

It has been a long time since I've read a book that made me want to just sit and finish it in one sitting, and in the past two weeks I've read two of them. One of them is the one in this review, A Darker Shade of Magic, and the other I'll review next … Continue reading Book Review: “A Darker Shade of Magic” by V. E. Schwab

First Impression Friday: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman

I think I'm a few decades late getting on this train. I read The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman while traveling to LA a few weeks back and was absolutely stunned at how amazing it was. It was one of those where I was almost tempted to skip sight-seeing just to stay inside and finish … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Practical Magic” by Alice Hoffman
