Betwixt the Books Review: “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” by Michelle McNamara

Possibly my favorite thing about this is that Michaela apologizes in the video for not getting the video up on the channel for like 3 months and now I’m posting this here months after that so like listen.

ARC Review: Mirage by Somaiya Daud

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!

ARC Review: Seafire by Natalie C. Parker

I am mad about 3 things. Very, very mad. I also give this book 4.5 stars. How does this figure, you ask? Guess you’re going to have to watch the review to find out!

Review: Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert

This book is an incredible intersectional story about a Jewish African American girl who may or may not be bisexual with a white step-brother recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It also has some issues with bi and pan representation. Watch to see!
