Hello, lovelies. I'm back from residency, back from spending time with family, and back to the blog. Things have been a little rough, but with time, I feel healed and ready to go again. Blog Updates I'll try to maintain a steady posting schedule, at least twice weekly, with updates, book reviews and more ARC … Continue reading August Updates
Besides trying to catch some sun (instead of sitting inside all summer), I'm going to keep trying to make a dent in my TBR pile! Besides finishing A Court of Mist and Fury, I also plan on finishing the series with A Court of Wings and Ruin and also read some other things! A Court of Wings … Continue reading June TBR
I've been reading a lot lately, and I've racked up quite a list. Some of my favorite reads this month span from contemporary all the way to high fantasy. Maybe you'll be interested in something in this list too! The Hate U Give One of my faves this month, I just couldn't put it down. … Continue reading April Reads
Review: The Wolf in the Attic ★☆☆☆☆
The Wolf in the Attic by Paul Kearney is the long winded tale of Anna, a Greek refugee living in London with her father in the early 20th century. There was exactly one exciting, plot driven scene in the first quarter of the book and everything else is countless pages of details, descriptions and character … Continue reading Review: The Wolf in the Attic ★☆☆☆☆
I’ve started a BookTube!
I've picked up booktubing--in an attempt to be more active in bookish communities, I've started a YouTube channel called "alebookstacks" to vlog about bookish stuff! I've only got one video up so far (it took me four hours from recording to finally getting it posted; YouTube is not easy), but I'll have more soon!
Review: Beyond the Red 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
When it comes to the broad sibling genre of Sci-Fi and Fantasy, I've always been more in the favor of Fantasy. But Beyond The Red by Ava Jae showed me a whole new world within the Sci-Fi realm, and I have fallen in love. Alien queen Kora has a problem as vast as the endless crimson … Continue reading Review: Beyond the Red 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
It's been so gorgeous the last couple of days in my neck of the woods. Sure, it's only been in the high 40s, low 50s, but it's better than freezing my butt off in the snow! So, of course, with the coming warm weather, I've decided to knit myself a new scarf and fluffy hat. … Continue reading Spring’s Coming!
A Book of Spirits and Thieves Review — ★★★☆☆
I picked up Morgan Rhodes' A Book of Spirits and Thieves on a whim. So far, most books I've picked up on a whim have been rather disappointing (I'm looking at you, Tiger's Curse) but A Book of Spirits and Thieves was surprisingly enthralling and interesting. But the whole time, I felt like there was something missing, and I can't quite put my … Continue reading A Book of Spirits and Thieves Review — ★★★☆☆
The Three Week Read is over!
So the Three Week Read is over and I haven't read as many books as I would have liked, but quality is more important that quantity (as you can see by my most recent book review). And so the winner of the TWR! The winner is the user Elodin, who suggested The Name of the Wind for … Continue reading The Three Week Read is over!
Name of the Wind Review – 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
As part of my Three Week Read, I read Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. With over 700 pages (I read the pocket sized paperback; the hardcover is closer to 600 pages) of fantasy and a rich world, see why I gave it five stars. Minor spoilers below. Name of the Wind has 700 pages of … Continue reading Name of the Wind Review – 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
