I received this ARC from Edelweiss for free for my honest review. My thanks to the publisher! Hades and Persephone retellings are really big right now, and if you are looking for a retelling with some spice – look no further! Let’s talk about this super interesting take on the world.
Talk Bookish to Me is a 2nd chance romance that does one of the most unique things I’ve seen in a while along with falling into one of my biggest pet peeve ruts. What a rollercoaster!
Wherein Michaela and I try to review this translated Epic Poem while having very little experience in the genre. Do we still talk for 20 minutes about what makes this book feminist or not, you know we do.
So, I’ll be honest, some of these are more tenuously connected to this challenge than others, but each one is important. There are some really good ones and some really meh ones. There are some new releases and some older stuff. I’m trying to cover literally everything here, apparently. Enjoy!
I should have reviewed this new one by Victoria Aveyard last week, but it was … a fight to finish it, to say the least. This was just not the book for me – but now you get to watch me lose my mind on camera, I guess?
Wherein we complete 1 of our joint review challenges, start another, and discuss a new diverse middle grade fantasy book with Korean folklore!
Let me be clear: I loved the first book in this series, We Hunt the Flame. I did not, however, find the second book (We Free the Stars) to be a great conclusion. It was fine! But not great. And I am on a streak of series that don’t end as well as I think they should … so I’m cranky.
In which I read two fantasy romance series back to back, both of which had good first books, better second books, and then fell apart in the third one. After The Folk of the Air also disappointed me, am I doomed to read unsatisfying series for a while? Please leave recommendations for good ones in the comments, I’m struggling.
Wherein Michaela and Gretchen answer the prompts put forth by the Heathers Book Tag.
I read two incredibly similar fake engagement books back to back, but one had a little extra level of characters and relationships than the other. Watch on for more!
