Onyx and Ivory Book Review

Onyx and Ivory is a return to fast paced and compelling fantasy, following Kate Brighton, or her nickname, Traitor Kate, in her self imposed banishment.  This novel started off with a bang, the first line; "Out here darkness meant death", Kate racing to get her and her horse to the safety of civilization before night, … Continue reading Onyx and Ivory Book Review

A Darker Shade of Magic Series Review

So, to start this off I'm going to be honest and say I read the first book last year, and finally got around to reading the second and third this last month.  The word 'finally' actually does not even begin to describe the sense of shame that comes with that long wait, especially considering that … Continue reading A Darker Shade of Magic Series Review

The Sad, but necessary Book Un-haul

Un-haul; I don't think I've ever heard this word before the online book community used it, and my first thought was why would you get rid of books from a perfectly fine collection?  Well, I've hit that point.  This post is a combination of listing the books I'm actually getting rid of, and touching on … Continue reading The Sad, but necessary Book Un-haul

Summer Book Haul (Because I somehow don’t have enough books yet)

So, I'm not one to do a lot of book hauls during the year, partly because its hard to take pictures and keep track of the books coming in, and also I don't buy books every month.  I love books, but I also have managed to somehow exercise some self control to keep my tbr … Continue reading Summer Book Haul (Because I somehow don’t have enough books yet)

Ten Vacation Reads You haven’t Thought of Packing

So, it's already June, and many of us are either going on vacation, thinking about our vacation, or wishing we were on one.  I wanted to start off a new trend of monthly top 10s (not always actually ranked) of books I'm recommending, and I figured with it being the start of summer, a vacation … Continue reading Ten Vacation Reads You haven’t Thought of Packing

Review of: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

Ever since I first read The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh I have been addicted to her writing, characters, and the idea of stories as an element of the plot.  One of my favorite bookish items in my room was the print I got for pre-ordering The Rose and the Dagger, it's quote … Continue reading Review of: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh
