Book-crastination

Has anyone else ever just said "eff it" to everything you need to read, and reread some of your old favorites? That was my weekend. I just binge read the whole Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews, since I had such a craving after reading the newest Emerald Blaze and reviewing it. It took all … Continue reading Book-crastination

ARC Review: “Ordinary Miracles” by Martyn Carey

Good morning, all! I am giving a fair warning up top that, despite being super excited about receiving this ARC from Netgalley and Matador, Ordinary Miracles fell flat for me, in more ways than one. I generally dislike giving bad reviews because I feel that one person's opinion shouldn't inform the decision of other people's readership, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Ordinary Miracles” by Martyn Carey

ARC Review: “A Killing Frost,” by Seanan McGuire

Hey all! I was ridiculously, incredulously happy and grateful to receive this ARC from Netgalley and DAW since Seanan McGuire is one of my favorite UA authors out there right now, and the October Daye series is on my top three series. I have requested quite a few Seanan McGuire books in the past, but … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Killing Frost,” by Seanan McGuire

ARC Review: “Shadow in the Empire of Light,” by Jane Routley

Good morning everyone! I'd like to start by thanking Netgalley and Rebellion Publishing for what was a pretty interesting ARC. I have to admit, I have put this review off for about a week, because it is hard to review a book that you wanted to like so bad, but ended up feeling disappointed. Shadow in … Continue reading ARC Review: “Shadow in the Empire of Light,” by Jane Routley

ARC Review: “A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians,” by H.G. Parry

Hello all, and happy Tuesday! (Is that a thing?) I am very excited to review to have received this book from Netgalley and RedHook, since it is a beautiful blend of fantasy and historical fiction. I missed reading good fantasy! I had also preordered this book ages ago, and when I got the chance to review … Continue reading ARC Review: “A Declaration of the Rights of Magicians,” by H.G. Parry

Book Review: “Witches of New York,” by Ami McKay

Happy Thursday, all (not sure if that is a thing; running with it). I am sorry I have been remiss - bookshelf project has been well underway, and work has been getting me down. However, I am very excited to review this next book, because it was the last one my book club read (come check … Continue reading Book Review: “Witches of New York,” by Ami McKay

ARC Review: “Hazel and Holly” by Sara Snider

Thank you, Netgalley and Double Beast Publishing, for Sara Snider's fantastical Hazel and Holly! As a side note, I learned recently that Double Beast is actually Sara Snider's own publishing house that she created after writing this book. I thought that was super cool! As a reviewer, it makes you feel like your words matter more, as … Continue reading ARC Review: “Hazel and Holly” by Sara Snider

ARC Review: Charlie Holmberg’s “Myths and Mortals”

Thank you, Netgalley and 47North, for the ARC of Charlie Holmberg's Myths and Mortals. I am so pleased to jump right into the series, with books one and two being available for ARC review within days of each other. I am not sure if book three will be available with the same alacrity, since there is … Continue reading ARC Review: Charlie Holmberg’s “Myths and Mortals”
