You’re welcome to participate, just please refer back here for credit. If you make a post, feel free to leave the link so I can check it out! My goal: 10 re-reads […]

This was basically a fantasy version of Westworld! I was actually skeptical about picking this one up when I first got it – I honestly hate the original cover and for some reason I just didn’t think I’d enjoy it. Then my lovely bookish friend Katie (@readerrewind) chose it for me for the 12 recs from 12 friends challenge on Instagram so I picked it up – and I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I would have finished this entire thing […]

I didn’t even really know what genre it was – the synopsis is very vague, so I thought it was a contemporary pushing thriller with maybe some possible paranormal elements. What I got was NOTHING […]

ARC Review: The Other Side of the Sky by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

If you enjoyed These Broken Stars, you’ll definitely enjoy this one too! It had a similar feel despite the fact that the world and concept was pretty different. I loved the setting and the concept! There’s a land of magic and gods on the ground, where only one remaining divinity still reigns. All the rest of the gods are believed to have abandoned the land of magic to the sky, but there’s a hidden city of science in the sky and […]
