The #NowWeRise Book Tag

The #NowWeRise Book Tag

The #NowWeRise Book Tag was created by Bec’s Books back in 2018, and while I didn’t participate in it back then, I’ve been holding on to it since I saw it drop on Written Word Worlds.  This book tag was create to celebrate Children of Blood and Bone, which was one of the first very impactful YA fantasys featuring rich minority cultures.  Others came before, and other came after, but if you ask readers the first time they truly interacted with a non-White non-Western-European-inspired fantasy world… Children of Blood and Bone will jump first to many, many minds. As it’s a […]

Traveling the World in Books

Traveling the World in Books

In 2017, I joined up with Top 5 Tuesday to write a post of five bookish places I’d like to live in.  When a similar topic popped up on Top Ten Tuesday, I wanted to take it in a different direction. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit Europe last year, and ever since, I’ve had a deep desire to travel and see the world for myself.  While financially that isn’t possible for me, it’s still possible to visit these places in books!  And I can dream.  While fantasy worlds are all well and good, our own planet […]

January Wrap Up:  ALL the Books Hauled, a Little Editing, and New Year Blues

January Wrap Up: ALL the Books Hauled, a Little Editing, and New Year Blues <3

I set out into 2019 with the intention to slay my reading list, and I feel like I’m at a really good spot!  I think I’m finally settling back in after destroying myself in November.  The blogs fairly well scheduled ahead, and I’m reading my ARCs more or less as I get them. Things in my blogging and bookish world are good, y’all?  I really hope this is an omen for the rest of the year. OKAY SO. Remember how in my 2019 Blogging Goals post, I spoke about how I was instituting a book buying ban on myself for 2019? Well […]

2019 Releases I Can’t Wait For!

2019 Releases I Can’t Wait For!

One of the best and most exciting things of the new year is the new slew of books that are coming!  A couple of these, I’ve been waiting for since 2017, so they’ve been on my radar for a while – others are sequels to books I’ve read this year.  One way or the other, I’m so excited for these books and I want to share them with you, because I hope you’re excited for them too! Okay, so a few of these I received as ARCs?  But I’m really excited for everyone to read them, so they made the list! 🙂     […]

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

Roshani Chokshi is a popular, successful author, and I hate to confess I haven’t read anything by her until now.  When I received The Gilded Wolves from NetGalley, it was so long after my request that I had forgotten that I requested it.  As some of you may know, I stopped requesting ARCs in the spring because I wanted to focus on the books I already own.  I’m very grateful to have gotten the opportunity to read this book early, because I am hooked on Chokshi now. The Gilded Wolves is a steampunk novel, set in an alternate Paris.  There’s magic […]

5 Fantastic Female Friendships in YA

5 Fantastic Female Friendships in YA

Hi loves! There was a Top Ten Tuesday topic a couple weeks ago about great friendships in YA, and I really wanted to join in because I’ve been trying to remember to jot down awesome, healthy female friendships when I come across them as I’ve been reading YA books this year.  Unfortunately, since NaNoWriMo was afoot, I really didn’t have time to balance new blog posts and plow ahead with The Novel, so I didn’t make the deadline. That said, I still wanted to join in on this topic!  I know that I’ve missed some, and it pains me to disclose […]
