What I’m Reading Wednesday, Redux

I’ve been doing so much reading and not enough reviewing – at least, not here on the blog. Between my own writing (which was going well, and now is – not) and reading and life in general, I feel both overwhelmed and behind. (Is it possible for the year to have passed both quickly and [Read On]

School for Psychics by K.C. Archer – (a flashback book review)

Nobody’s perfect – not the main character of K.C. Archer’s School for Psychics, Teddy Cannon – and clearly, not me. Because despite loving this book and reviewing it’s sequel here on the blog (spoiler – there is a sequel), I apparently only reviewed the book itself on Amazon and Goodreads. And since I enjoyed it [Read On]

Sing Me Forgotten by Jessica S. Olson – Book Review

Enough time has passed to almost forgive author Jessica S Olson for RIPPING OUT MY HEART in her novel Sing Me Forgotten, a hauntingly beautiful gender-bent retelling of Phantom of the Opera. Almost. Read on for my review. And send caramels. Many thanks go to Inkyard Press and Netgalley for providing me with an ARC [Read On]

Magic For Liars by Sarah Gailey – Book Review

I’m catching up on all the book reviews I meant to do just before a polar vortex gripped Texas and knocked out all power1. The only writing I did last week was on paper, and unfortunately, the writing the week before that was mostly in my head. Sorry you didn’t get to read it. It [Read On]

The Girl of Hawthorn And Glass by Adan Jerreat-Poole – Book Review

If you’re looking for a YA fantasy that is dark and wild and imaginative that also has great LGBTQ+ rep, look no further than Adan Jerreat-Poole’s recent release, The Girl of Hawthorn and Glass. The world-building in this story is beyond imagination (I got some Wrinkle in Time vibes). Read on for my review in [Read On]

Prelude for Lost Souls by Helene Dunbar – A Book Review

Oh bejeebus. I’ve written a review for Helene Dunbar’s Prelude for Lost Souls review four times now, and the internet has crashed or WordPress has frozen. And then there was that time that I had the whole thing done on NetGalley – and then NetGalley refreshed and my review disappeared before I could submit. Each [Read On]

Ring Shout by P. Djèlí Clark

I have read a LOT of books this year (no small surprise) but none like Ring Shout by author P. Djèlí Clark. This alternative history packs a powerful punch in novella form. Superb and unputdownable, it digs in and doesn’t let go. I received an advanced copy of the book from the publisher via NetGalley; all [Read On]

Book Review: Deeplight by Frances Hardinge

If you’re looking for a captivating fantasy adventure with lush, gorgeous writing, DEEPLIGHT by Frances Hardinge should be your next book. Keep on reading for my review. I received an advance copy of the book from Amulet Books via Media Masters Publicity in exchange for an unbiased review.  All opinions are my own. This post [Read On]

Books to Help Understand Anti-Racism and Race

Wanting to be a better white ally means learning about systemic racism. To do that, we need to dig a little deeper into U.S. history, because we’re simply not taught it fully in school, at least in a way that we understand the nuances and all that shaped how we ended up where we all [Read On]

Book Review: Wicked As You Wish by Rin Chupeco

If you are looking for something different, WICKED AS YOU WISH is the YA novel for you. Blending alternative history, contemporary fantasy, and fairy tales, author Rin Chupeco has crafted a wild adventure. This is a very different book from her other, darker stories, and one that you will likely read more than once as [Read On]
