  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and Algonquin Young Readers in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I am not normally a short story person, but I really loved Foreshadow.  This collection of stories compiled by Emily X. R. Pan and Nova Ren Suma excites the imagination ands such a deliberate of language that while they flow together beautifully, they are also individually beautiful. Often with these sorts of collections. I’ll go in and rate the discuss each of the pieces on their […]

Swamp Thing: Twin Branches by Maggie Stiefvater

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Comics and graphic novels aren’t my usual thing, but as a fan of Maggie Stiefvater’s this one caught my attention – doubly so because of the beautiful cover art.  As book lovers, we tease ourselves a bit about our tendency to fall in love with covers… but with comics, it really makes a difference to enjoy the art. And so on that note, before I go […]

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from LibraryThing Early Reviewers and Candlewick Press in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Mixed feelings on this one.

On the other hand, I struggled with this one.  It’s a very readable book, but it didn’t feel real.  Which I know is a stupid thing to say about a book, especially one where I […]

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from LibraryThing Early Reviewers and William Morrow in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I was so excited to win this ARC from LibraryThing Early Reviewers.  Honestly, I have really good luck with LibraryThing.  Secretly, I think this is because I review everything promptly and publishers tend to appreciate when you review the ARCs, even though it’s optional.  One thing about LibraryThing, though, is that there tends to be fewer authors I recognize so when I saw Gregory […]

The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi

The Silvered Serpents by Roshani Chokshi

Posted September 8, 2020 in Reviews // 0 Comments

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and Wednesday Books in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I have come to crave Roshani Chokshi’s lyrical writing, but it’s not just the writing that makes The Silvered Serpents excellent – as a second book, it more than lived up to the expectations of its predecessor. The Gilded Wolves gave us a tantalizing steampunk world with memorable characters and heaps of adventure.  The Silvered Serpents ascends the story to the realm of treasure hunting, secrets, and more than […]
