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 →

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 →

Anthem by Ayn Rand

I found this novella for Read Harder's task 17, a sci-fi/fantasy novella. I originally wanted to read the last of the Binti books for this one, since I read the first one for Read Harder last year (task 5, a book by an author of color about or set in space), but the last one... Continue Reading →

The Deep by Rivers Solomon

I found The Deep when looking for a book for Read Harder 2020 Task 2, read a retelling of a classic of canon, fairytale, or myth by an author of color. I have a thing about mermaids. I have always loved them. The Little Mermaid was my favorite story when I was a kid and... Continue Reading →

The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf by Ambelin Kwaymullinav

It took forever to settle on a book for the 2019 Read Harder task 8, an #ownvoices book set in Oceania. The Interrogation of Ashala Wolf is a dystopian set in Australia and I picked up the second book as soon as I finished the first. I was behind in the challenge, though and waited...

The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers

I'd heard the title before, but decided to read The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet for Read Harder's task 23. I have to admit that the title is intriguing but I hadn't considered it my kind of sci-fi before. Not that I can really categorize what my kind of sci-fi is, I just... Continue Reading →

Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, translated by Anthea Bell

Stars: 4 of 5 I have to admit that I was spellbound by this book almost as soon as I started it. The prologue has just the touch of mystery that intrigues me and then the story never loosened it's grip. This is actually one of the quickest books I've listened to, finding any excuse...

The Queue by Basma Abdel Aziz

Review:  I'll be honest, I didn't entirely understand the ending of this book, but didn't diminish its value to me at all. Sometimes, I just don't get where certain stories are coming from. They happen to be outside of my ability to relate while being incredibly intriguing. The thing about the Queue is that is... Continue Reading →

Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler

Review:  I know I've mentioned a few times how I have grown to adore Octavia Butler. I read Bloodchild and other Stories and Kindred last year and had this one on my TBR for a minute. I was excited to find a good spot for it on the Read Harder Challenge this year. It's my... Continue Reading →

Wires and Nerve Volume 2: Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer

Review:  I read and reviewed the first book of this series last year, which is available here. I've also gone on, at length, about how much I adore Marissa Meyer and the world she created for this series and the Lunar Chronicles. Gone Rogue continues the story with Iko as the protagonist. As mentioned in the... Continue Reading →
