10 Books Outside of my Comfort Zone (That I Really Liked!) – #TopTenTuesday

10 Books Outside of my Comfort Zone (That I Really Liked!) – #TopTenTuesday

I have a pretty specific set of books I like to read: YA Fantasy.  Sometimes I will shift from one of these – Adult Fantasy! YA Contemporary!  But my favorite is still YA Fantasy.  However, shifting far enough out of this genre to get into something really different?  So rare.  A book really need to catch my attention.  In fact? Half the time, even if it does, I’ll add it to my TBR and when it gets to the front of the line, I’ll say “eh no”. But I keep adding these books because – you never know!  Sometimes, I really, really like […]

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope everyone is having a FANTASTIC day!  Today, for you other history nerds out there, is the Ides of March.  So, um, if your name is Julius Caesar… watch your back!  FUN FACT.  One of the reasons the Ides of March was important to the Romans, because it was a day they used to settle debts.  Now, I think most Romans probably settled financial debts… but Brutus and Cassius took it to the next level.

Candy Hearts, ARC Attack, & Busyness – February Wrap Up!

Candy Hearts, ARC Attack, & Busyness – February Wrap Up!

The end of February always throws me off.  it feels like we should have another week, right?  But the end is nigh and March is upon us.  March is my least favorite month of the year, largely because we get hit with the worst of the winter weather in March.  Fortunately I have a contingency plan for that and plan to spend a week of March in the Caribbean. 10/10 I recommend this winter escaping tactic. In the meanwhile, let’s talk books. 😉 Okay, okay.  I know.  This looks bad, right?  Especially bad for being on a book buying ban.  I […]

The Rook by Daniel O’Malley

The Rook by Daniel O’Malley

This book was a lot of fun. I don’t think that The Rook ever pretends to be a serious work of fantasy fiction.  Myfanwy Thomas has had her memory erased.  She’s doing her absolute best to pretend that HASN’T happened so nobody will noticed.  All she knows for sure is that something fishy is going on in the Checquy, and it’s why she’s in this position.  Plus that person is probably still trying to kill her, so Myfanwy 2.0 needs to figure out what’s going on, quick. The Rook has a lot of fundamental flaws.  First of all, it is LONG.  […]
