Top Ten Tuesday: Signs You’re Book Obsessed

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl You know you’re book obsessed when… You carry a book with you wherever you go. There’s nothing worse than being stuck waiting anywhere without a book, amirite? Bonus points if you carry booksleeves to protect the babies you carry around with you. You have your library card memorized. Let’s be honest, I lost my library card AGES ago. I could get a new one, sure, but then I’d have to […]

ARC Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

ARC Review: Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko

What a beautiful debut!! The world of Aritsar as well as Ifueko’s prose were stunning and vivid. I loved the culture! It felt a lot like a mashup of Children of Blood & Bone and City of Brass, but was everything I wanted from both of those books (and didn’t get). This was the gorgeous Nigerian fantasy that I expected jumping into CoB&B, which left me feeling disappointing. This one did not! I was utterly hooked from the first chapter! It […]

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: Books From My Two Fave Subgenres
Posted by Jessi (Geo) on March 24, 2020 | 2 Comments

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 […]

Review: A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

Review: A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer

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 […]
