Dishonor on You, Dishonor on your Cow, and Also HI! It’s the Disney Sidekick Tag!

You know, I have a lot of saved tags in my drafts, and they’re all super fun, so I feel like it’s time to do more than one tag a month.  🙂 For my readers in the United States, I hope everyone had a wonderful Fourth of July last week!  We didn’t do anything much (we usually don’t) but it’s always lovely to have a day off!  The only thing I miss about the Fourth of July celebrations in my childhood is the fireworks, but alas, personal fireworks are illegal in the state of Massachusetts, so…. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Today’s tag comes from […]

Plus, I’m just really excited that summer is rolling around.  I’m not normally a summer person, but New England weather is wonky and we’ve had says that are 35F following […]

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

All the Crooked Saints was such a rollercoaster ride for me.  Going into it, I really wanted that same atmospheric magic I found in The Raven Boys but I was a bit hesitant because I’ve read quite a few “I was disappointed” reviews.  After I got a little while in – maybe 20% – I decided I wasn’t crazy about the narrator. Then, the Sorias swallowed me whole. This novel is so utterly unique in that it is in many ways a familiar story, but embracing a sort of magic in the world that makes it feel completely fresh.  It doesn’t […]
