I’ve been seeking out ways to read for free with library branches being shut down and no physical books available.

Honestly, this is something I NEVER would have picked up on my own. But my book twin Christy was raving about how amazing the audio was, and I’d been seeing a lot of hype surrounding the book. so I requested it from my library. The hype for the audiobook? SO well deserved. It was fantastic, and to be honest every single one of those 2.5 stars is solely for the audiobook. The book itself? A solid Not For Me. I […]

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl I don’t get to talk about my two favorite subgenres very often, so I thought today’s genre freebie post was a great chance! I am a huge fan of fantasy and sci-fi, and it’s what I predominantly read. I also adore High Fantasy and seem to gravitate toward that (even though a lot of it is generic anymore and I have trouble finding really great ones). However, my absolute FAVORITE […]

While I still enjoyed this book for the most part, it sooo did not have the magic that A Curse So Dark and Lonely did. First of all, this book is a companion. (Which I knew going in, so I lowered my expectations a bit.) And it’s like most companions – once you get attached to the characters in the first book, it’s hard to get as attached to the secondary characters (or new characters) as the main characters in a […]

It’s been a while since I read a mystery/thriller because they’re not usually my jam (and ya’ll know I don’t usually do contemp at all), but I really enjoyed this one! I loved the mystery aspect and how we slowly got snippets of information that lead to clues about the murder. The mystery and all the secrets kept me going! Honestly, throughout most of this book I had no idea who did it. It was well done for sure! I can […]
