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!
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!
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!
Did I really do it? Did I really read a YA book PLUS an ARC on time? I really, really did. I’m so proud! This book ripped out all my emotional insides and I give it four stars. Now, back to wallowing in my book hangover.
This book was pitched as Mulan meets Project Runway. How exactly does one resist such a pitch? Hint: You can’t.
I got this book as an ARC. That doesn’t mean I read it before it came out. Still, this series is by the people behind my favorite YA scifi of all time, the Illuminae Files. I screamed when I picked up the ARC. Did I enjoy the book? Well, that’s what the video is for.
I released this video on the channel when the book actually wasn’t out yet but forgot to post it here. Listen. I’m a fallible human being. Anyways. This is one of the ARCs from BEA that I wasn’t sure was worth getting. After all, the author wasn’t there and I sat in line for like 2 hours. Was it worth it, you ask? YES, YES IT WAS. Why? That’s what the video is for!
I’m actually reviewing a BEA ARC on time! I give this one 3 stars for being an enjoyable adventure but not having as much world building or character development as I would like.
