32 of My Favorite Sci-Fi Books by Female-Identifying Authors & Featuring Female-Identifying Characters to Celebrate Women’s History Month!

Posted March 2, 2022 in Bookish Things // 2 Comments

For women’s history month this year, I would like to focus on women in science fiction literature. We know incredible women like N.K. Jemisin and Ursula K. Le Guin who have changed and improved the genre. In 2020, there was nearly an equal amount of male and female authors publishing science fiction novels. There is still a lot of opportunity in the genre for greater overall gender diversity (non-binary authors only made up about 5% of publication). There is also a lot of opportunity to increase intersectionality in the genre. Still, I take what wins I can, and it’s very […]

2019: My Year in Books!

2019: My Year in Books!

Posted January 8, 2020 in Checking In // 4 Comments

Good morning everyone!  How has the beginning of 2020 gone for everyone so far?  Has everyone stuck to their New Years Resolutions?  I’m rubbish at resolutions, if I’m being completely honest, but one of my big ones this year is to take better care of myself physically – sleep, hydration, diet, etc.  I mean, most people have that, right?  Here’s hoping that I can keep to it, and you all are doing amazingly on your resolutions as well! Every year, I do a bit of a review on my blog to look at all the reading I did in the […]

Not Much Reading, or Writing, Oops! – The October Wrap Up

Not Much Reading, or Writing, Oops! – The October Wrap Up

Posted October 28, 2019 in Checking In // 2 Comments

This will be short and sweet loves as I’m frantically writing this about twelve hours before it goes live.  Busy, busy lately! Another small book-buying month!  These are all pre-orders and book box items. 🙂 And, guys?  The Girl the Sea Gave Back was a hard-won battle.  I’ve been having more and more issues with Book Depository… to the point where I don’t think I’m going to buy from them anymore once all my pre-orders come through.  They were fine for a while, but this year I’ve had 2 books that were sent and then lost by USPS apparently, for […]

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from BookCon 2019 and Razorbill in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. At the beginning, I was absolutely enthralled with War Girls.  The first hundred pages hooked me.  The characters were interesting and the world building was fascinating.  A lot of science fiction coming out these days feels copy/pasted.  The language and setting feel the same – that’s not the case with War Girls. The science fiction in this book was so refreshing.  It was sharp and technical enough that it felt modern […]

AHHH GUYS. The Reading Rush was SO. MUCH. FUN. I am definitely on board to do this readathon again next year.  When I built my TBR for Reading Rush, I thought only of hardcopy books off my shelf, and as such this was the first time in ages I feel like I’ve been reading off my shelf.  Yes, I did throw War Girls in there because I felt like I still needed to follow my actual TBR a little, but otherwise?  It was just so nice to read some different books and to check off challenges and I loved it. So what […]
