I think it’s time for me to come to terms with the fact that Stephanie Garber is not for me. Caraval was just okay for me – pretty meh, but not bad – and I outright hated Legendary. I got tricked by the hype monster yet again, because this spin off series is WILDLY popular. So, I went in with rather high hopes. Why can’t I just like the stuff that everyone else likes?! It seems like every time there’s […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books With Little to No Romance

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl Happy (early) Valentine’s Day/Galentine’s Day/Singles Awareness Day! Today’s TTT is a love freebie, and anyone who knows me at all knows I don’t really care for romance in books. There are a few that I love, but they have to be done just a certain way for me to enjoy them. So, for those who are like me and would rather have plot over romance, I wanted to share some […]

Wow, I did not expect to love this book so much! I am not a non-fiction reader. I can count the number of non-fic books I’ve read in my entire life on one hand. In fact, I even know exactly which ones they are – Half Assed by Jeanette Fulda and Cultish by Amanda Montell. I did read a short self help book maybe a year ago, but I don’t even remember the name of it because it wasn’t very […]

Full disclosure: I almost didn’t read this. The first time I picked it up I was bored out of my mind with the politics and I DNFed it. It took me years, but I finally decided to give it another shot! I think listening to the audio really helped, honestly. It was much easier to get through this time around! It was still pretty slow in the beginning, but the last half really picked up. And THAT ENDING!!! I never knew […]

Looking back at last year’s resolutions Here’s my post from last year! Reading/blogging resolutions Hit 100 books again. NAILED IT! I one upped myself and hit 150! Continue to read different genres. Nailed this one too. My sci-fi and fantasy wedges only accounted for about 70% on my pie chart, which is outstanding for me! Hit 100% ratio on both Netgalley and Edelweiss. I didn’t quite make it. I started the year with 3 books on each platform – and while […]

I am Ilsaletta Redtide. My father is Admiral Redtide of the Kingdom of Cragspear. I will not die as a mouse in the darkness. This book started off STRONG! In the beginning, I was hooked. It was also very quotable – I highlighted so many passages! But sadly, by the end I had very mixed feelings about it because it went downhill in the last half. The main thing that I enjoyed about this book was the concept. It was […]
