New(ish) Candle Business! (which I keep meaning to talk about)

New(ish) Candle Business! (which I keep meaning to talk about)

I have been meaning to make this post ever since I started back in October – it was originally a “where I’ve been post” because this is 1/2 of the reason I disappeared (and kind of fell off the face of the planet) for a couple of months. (The other 1/2 is my new library which I will get to in a separate post!) Back in fall last year, I was spending a FORTUNE on bookish candles. THE OBSESSION IS […]

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Review: The Dragon’s Price by Bethany Wiggins

Let me make something perfectly clear: THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A ROMANCE. THIS IS A FUCKING ROMANCE. Got it? Good. This is not a book about dragons. In fact, dragons make an appearance exactly three times in this entire book. Yes, three. THREE. IN THREE HUNDRED PAGES. Literally the rest of the book is ooey gooey, in your face, vomit-inducing romance. If you dig romance, you’ll […]

Review: Ever the Hunted (AKA the book that threw me into a 3 month reading slump)

Review: Ever the Hunted (AKA the book that threw me into a 3 month reading slump)

Honestly this review was hard for me to write because it’s been THREE months since I read it. I remember almost nothing. I kinda wish I had just DNFed it, because between forcing myself through a book that was terrible and the obligation I felt to continue (this was an ARC tour book so I felt like I had to finish), this book was directly responsible for the horrible reading slump that I’ve been in since LAST NOVEMBER. Yes. I finished this […]
