ARC Review: “Hope Between the Pages,” by Pepper Basham

Happy Friday, all! This is the last Friday of my vacation, and while I am sad to see it go, I definitely feel like I got the rest I needed.

Book Review: “Calculated Risks,” by Seanan McGuire

Hello all! Is this what vacation feels like?! I forgot the weird exhilaration of being off from work for any length of time. I am, in a word, loving it. For this week, I plan on reviewing so many books that have been sitting in the "Read" pile, unreviewed and seemingly unloved. Calculated Risks, book … Continue reading Book Review: “Calculated Risks,” by Seanan McGuire

ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

I am, predictably, late - and shame on me too! Patricia Briggs is by far one of my favorite UA writers, and when I won Wild Sign from Netgalley and Berkley Publishing, I was thrilled! A little too thrilled, perhaps, since I finished Wild Sign at least a month before it came out. And now, … Continue reading ARC Review: “Wild Sign,” by Patricia Briggs

Book Review: “The Queen’s Bargain,” by Anne Bishop

Happy Thursday, all! What a week, am I right?! I received the ARC for The Queen's Weapons recently, and since it comes out March 9, I know it was time to get off my butt and read book one.

Hello all! I am officially only one book behind on my ARCs!

ARC Review: “The Ruthless Lady’s Guide to Wizardry,” by C. M. Waggoner

Hello, all! Welcome to another week of "Sam is late on her ARC reading." I received The Ruthless Lady's Guide to Wizardry from Netgalley and Berkley Publishing a little before the publication date and flew through it as quick as I could, but missed the publishing date by two weeks (so go order your copy … Continue reading ARC Review: “The Ruthless Lady’s Guide to Wizardry,” by C.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To

Happy Tuesday, all! I am happy to have a little bit of time tonight to focus on me, and I decided to contemplate my next steps. One really cool bookish meme I have been seeing is Top Ten Tuesday, and this week seems perfect. Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June … Continue reading Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Meant to Read In 2020 but Didn’t Get To
