You know those books where you can’t really pinpoint what was special about it, only that you were utterly absorbed by the language and the world and you breathed in the story as though it was as essential as oxygen itself?  That is how I feel about Fable. In this world of critical reading, I can’t say that there was a lot of diversity in Fable.  I don’t think […]

The Mermaid, The Witch, and the Sea by Maggie Tokuda-Hall

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Wow. This book was a ride. You guys already know I pick up pirate books like a robin plucking up fat wriggling worms – I can’t get enough.  The grisly reality, the call of the sea, the code of the Brethren… bring it on.  Requesting The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea was an easy call, and I’m so glad I did. At first, I wasn’t […]

First things first – I think that those who enjoyed Wicked Saints will enjoy Ruthless Gods.  There’s a lot of the same aesthetic and I personally thought the characters were constant.  Unfortunately, I’m coming at this from an angle where Wicked Saints was not quite as good as I wanted it to be, and Ruthless Gods did not improve the situation. There is still a little of the landscaping aesthetics I really liked […]

Paying My Blog Fees in ARCs – Did It Work?

Paying My Blog Fees in ARCs – Did It Work?

Posted February 7, 2020 in Blogging // 6 Comments

At the beginning of 2019, I decided I wanted to experiment with an idea bouncing around in my head.  I’m a self-hosted blog, and not a big one, but I made this choice because I liked the freedom it allows in customization and plugins.  The Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin (and, subsequently, its sister plugin Book Database) have made that decision really worth it for me… but I am a hobbyist blogger.  What does that mean?  It means everything I pay in hosting and design comes out of my pocket.  In my case, it means I have no affiliations, I’m not […]

  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. If you are looking for a ruthless, black-hearted tale of dark revenge, then Foul is Fair is absolutely the book you need. Before I go any further, I would like to reference the content warning page on Hannah Capin’s website. This book overflows with triggers and before you even consider picking it up, it is absolutely vital you read this page. I do not want anyone picking […]
