Mini Review – Just One Year by Gayle Forman

Mini Review – Just One Year by Gayle Forman

I read the first installment of this series, Just One Day, quite a few years ago now and I tried to read this one right after, but for some reason I could not get into it. I had always wanted to finish this duology but never got around to it. A few weeks ago, I went to the library for the first time in forever […]

Mini Review – Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

Mini Review – Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

As soon as I heard about Beasts Made of Night, I just knew I had to read it. And after reading Akata Witch which is both Nigerian-influenced as well as set within the country, I became even more intrigued by the culture within the realm of fiction. Unfortunately, while Akata Witch quickly became a favorite read of the year, Beasts Made of Night almost ended up on my DNF shelf. […]

Life Updates and 2017 Hiatus

Life Updates and 2017 Hiatus

I’m burned out. And I mean really burned out. I’ve had blogging slumps (honestly I don’t know anyone who hasn’t who’s been doing this for a while) and those were nothing compared to this. There’s a lot going on in my life right now that’s likely contributing to this so I can’t pinpoint the specific cause or this would be easier. If y’all didn’t know, I’m a […]

Blog Tour Review – Gray Wolf Island by Tracey Neithercott

I wasn’t expecting this book. And by that, I mean I think I went in with more expectations for action, adventure, the standard fantasy elements that I always look for but this book just isn’t that. I loved that this felt like a mysterious treasure hunt and combined with the beautiful writing that reminded me a bit of The Court of Broken Knives, both books featuring a very […]

Blog Tour Review + #Giveaway – Akata Warrior by Nnedi Okorafor

Blog Tour Review + #Giveaway – Akata Warrior by Nnedi Okorafor

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of reading Akata Witch, the first of this series and hailed as the “Nigerian Harry Potter.” While I definitely saw the similarities, the book stood on its own and continues to expand this beautifully rich world in Akata Warrior. Much like the first book, I found myself falling into Okorafor’s world more so than her characters. It’s been a year […]

Thinking About Blogging Goals for 2018

Thinking About Blogging Goals for 2018

I love lists. Like I really love lists. Making them, crossing things off, all of it. Seeing what I’ve accomplished is just so satisfying and truly a great motivator. And it’s that time of the year again to start thinking about a list of goals for myself as a reader and for the blog! I don’t always write all my goals down, some just float around my […]
