All about books. Mostly reviews. Sometimes I'm funny.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books On My Spring TBR

The topic for this week's Top Ten Tuesday as presented by That Artsy Reader Girl is Books On My Spring TBR. I hate the TBR ones because I'm a mood reader, and I don't really have specific TBRs. My method... Continue Reading →


Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

I could have written about Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo separately, but I read them very quickly. Now it's all squished in one giant story. I think they both hold up well on their own as individual stories, but they're... Continue Reading →

Lost Boy by Christina Henry

Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Book Quotes

Back at it again with Top Ten Tuesday. Join the fun by visiting That Artsy Reader Girl. The topic for March 6 is Favorite Book Quotes. This one is going to be difficult. It would probably be easier if I... Continue Reading →

Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo

I decided to read Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo because I read a stellar review of it on Thrice Read, and it sounded too good to pass up. It was amazing! I opted to finish it yesterday instead of write a... Continue Reading →
