Ember Queen by Laura Sebastian

As with the first two parts of this series, I love this finale! Sebastian is amazing and I love the world she built. Though life hasn't allowed much time for posting, I have been reveling in amazing worlds last month. I finished this series and then The Belles and the Firebird series (end of that...

The Belles and The Everlasting Rose by Dhonielle Clayton

The Belles and The Everlasting Rose are the first two books in Clayton's The Belles series. I had read The Belles last year during my hiatus but never reviewed it. There is an untitled third book in the works according to Goodreads too. As it is, these two were originally written as a duology but... Continue Reading →

A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray

I had a decent rotation going for my posts to make sure I covered all my interests for a while there, but now life has intervened. Nothing bad, just busy and hard to keep track and I made a plan to not let things get crazy so I'm letting it go. It's actually kinda funny... Continue Reading →

Inspired by kids books

I loved reading bedtime stories to my son when he was really little. We fell off it for a long while when he was old enough to read on his own, though. As mentioned a few days ago, we recently started reading at the dinner table instead. It's had me thinking about some of his... Continue Reading →

Illustrated Harry Potter 1-4

For the first time in his young life, I've been able to really read with my son. It took a while to get him to the place where he wasn't dreading the experience and I tend to give up after a chapter or two if he does, but then lockdown.... I'm kidding, it wasn't lockdown... Continue Reading →

Lady Smoke by Laura Sebastian

Lady Smoke is the second book in the Ash Princess Trilogy. For the review of the first book, Ash Princess, click here. This is a great continuation of the story but some of my opinions on this story could spoil the first one, so please don't go any further if you haven't read that one.... Continue Reading →

I found Freshwater for Read Harder, task 11. This is a debut novel by a queer author that was recommended by Book Riot. It was just the right book for the way I was feeling too. I had taken a bit of time off to get over the end of the Shatter Me series and... Continue Reading →

Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi

I'm a little sad this series is over. I've given myself some extra time before starting the next book to get into the right mindset, so I just keep replaying my favorite parts of the series in the car. The Shatter Me series has definitely been one of my favorites. The timing worked out for... Continue Reading →

Listen, Slowly by Thanhha Lai

Books like this are the entire reason I love the Read Harder Challenge. I picked this one up for task 20, a middle grade book that doesn't take place in the US or UK. This book takes place in Viet Nam. It's about a 12 year old Vietnamese American girl who goes back to Viet... Continue Reading →

Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian

I originally thought this was going to be an interesting retelling of Cinderella, which excited me a lot after Cinder became my all time favorite retelling collection, but this is actually so much better than a retelling. The book is more fantasy than I normally read, but I had been more intrigued whenever I read... Continue Reading →
