I tried so very, very hard to make this quick, but 32 books do not make for a fast time, even though I’ve already reviewed many of these on the channel. Actually, I was amazed how few I’d even talked about! This has something for everyone who reads as weirdly as me: young adult, fantasy, romance, and nonfiction. You can also skip towards the end to get my top pick so far in each category. Enjoy!
Wherein me and Michaela let you in on their history with fantasy as well as give you some recommendations of favorite fantasy reads for all ages.
After Hogle’s debut was one of my top 5 novels of last year, the bar could not be higher for this one. Maybe … too high? Watch on to find out!
SPOILERS AHEAD! This is part series review, part rant, part gush over The Cruel Prince, The Wicked King, and The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black. I wanted to love these books SO much, and almost did. And then. And then. Well. Get ready for the rant, folks.
Wherein Michaela and Gretchen review a book they both read on a whim this week.
Up until now, these have had a theme. Now it’s just anarchy. I’ve got a few more books I’ve read that aren’t my biographies of a specific president. Actually, these might even be more interesting. Enjoy!
I honestly thought I wouldn’t have content for today, and then Michaela suggested trying the try a chapter tag. I picked 6 books I really need to get reading, and try the first chapter from each one. I actually had a lot of fun with it, and I hope that you’ll let me know if I end up ranking them correctly!
On their own, I might not have reviewed these books. It isn’t that they aren’t good, just that I didn’t have enough to say to warrant taking up your time. HOWEVER, reading these three books in a row made for some super bizarre connections that I still just can’t get over! Has this ever happened to you? Let me know!
I have way, way too many feelings about this book. Some of them are SO good. Some of them are … not as good. Overall, this book exceeded my expectations but it also did something that drove me SO crazy I had to add a spoiler bit to the end. Don’t worry, you’ll be warned when that happens!
I have been telling myself I would film this video for a while now, but something kept coming up and then I straight up forgot. Don’t worry, my feelings about this series are just as fresh as ever! …especially Obsidio…
