2022 Mid Year Book Tag

What is one to do when they run out of steam on reviews? Ah, a tag! Michaela recommended this one to me and I have to say, I really enjoyed it. I feel like the beginning of this year is already so far away. Links to videos I couldn’t take, the creators, and the questions are all below the video.

I ran out of cards halfway through, so here are all the other reviews/videos I mentioned:

Betwixt the Books Discuss: Editing | Why do we feel betrayed by our favorite authors lately?

Wherein Michaela and I speculate about a trend we have noticed and ask the publishing industry to maybe, possibly, just slow down a minute and really make the best possible books.

Well, that was unexpected… | Something Wilder by Christina Lauren ARC Review

This was a super wild ride, and I can’t wait to tell you about it. It isn’t going to be a great character story, but oh boy will there be an adventure!

5 Stars to Book Lovers by Emily Henry | ARC Review

I hadn’t even planned on coming out from under my finals-created rock, but there was no way I couldn’t share my thoughts about this book with you guys. It was SO GOOD. It was just, emotionally, exactly what I needed.

2022 Q1 Wrap Up

This is so many books. I am so tired. This is an incredible speed run, if I do say so myself, and it’s still 30 minutes long. I need to … read less.
