Review: The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow

Review: The Once and Future Witches by Alix E. Harrow
Posted by Jessi (Geo) on March 8, 2021 | 0 Comments

I was worried I wouldn’t enjoy this with it being historical, but I picked it up anyway because I LOVED The Ten Thousand Doors of January. And Alix delivered yet again! It wasn’t quite as good as Ten Thousand Doors, but it was still haunting and beautiful! Harrow’s prose is absolutely lovely and engaging and it just draws you in! I loved the magic of this story. It made me want to crawl into the pages and live there! I’m […]

Mini Audiobook Reviews: Malice, Sleeping Giants, Scythe

Mini Audiobook Reviews: Malice, Sleeping Giants, Scythe
Posted by Jessi (Geo) on March 5, 2021 | 0 Comments

This book was SO. TEDIOUS. The narrator was okay – not bad, but not great either. And the book took FOREVER! And I feel like nothing really happened. I just listened to the audiobook a month or two ago and I remember almost nothing. The characters were hard to keep straight, too. There were several sets of names that sounded almost identical (it’s fantasy so probably spelled differently) and I kept mixing them up. And I just didn’t care about […]

I’m going to be honest, I let this review go for WAY too long. At this point I really don’t remember anything at all about the book. But, in my defense, it wasn’t all that memorable and didn’t stick with me to begin with. I had forgotten much of what I read within the first week. I didn’t enjoy it very much while I was reading, either. I didn’t care about any of the characters or anything that was happening, […]

2021 Goals and Resolutions

2021 Goals and Resolutions
Posted by Jessi (Geo) on February 11, 2021 | 0 Comments

I typically hate making New Year’s resolutions because it’s my belief that you should do so throughout the whole year, but I do still love them because it’s good motivation and something to look back on to see if I’ve accomplished my goals! Looking back at last year’s resolutions Reading resolutions Read more than last year – I *kind of* did this. I only read 75 in 2019, and I read 95 last year. So a little more, but I still […]

“We hunted the flame together, found the light in the darkness, but we are far from done, laa? Now we unleash it. We free the stars, shatter the darkness holding us captive, and return the world to the splendor it once was.” What a beautiful ending to an amazing duology! If you haven’t read We Hunt the Flame yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. Hafsah’s storytelling is simply stunning! Lush and magical world, unique and fleshed out characters, action-packed plot. […]
