Unpopular Opinion? A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas Review + Discussion

Don’t worry guys, I’m nowhere near off the SJM bandwagon. I’m just saying that I had some plot and character issues with this book, which isn’t normal. The review itself is spoiler free, but there IS a spoiler section that I give you plenty of warning about! I’m really looking to engage with you guys, so give me a shout in the comments.

We old m*hf*hers, we old.

This is the first of our REAL ADULT BOOK CLUB. We used to say we were college friends, well folks… we are no longer students. We are now adult humans, with adult things, READING BOOKS ABOUT TEEN WITCHES, HELL YEAH.

Writing is Hard + Bonus Haul

Some Betwixt the Books content for this week ABOUT writing, and how it is hard. Michaela and I are trying to support each other to keep writing, and we just recently bought some books to help aid us in that struggle.

Bibliomancy for Beginners – Spooksgiving: Let Me In by John Ajvide Lindqvist

So remember when we said we were going to do a Halloween special? Well. It took us until about, oh, Black Friday to actually get this done. It’s always time for weird vampire sort-of-horror, right? Listen. I’m out of excuses, okay? Life is hard, but we love books. This really wasn’t my favorite, even if Michaela and Taylor liked it. HOWEVER, this is a really awesome episode because this book may not have been that good (to me) but it stimulated A LOT of really awesome discussion of themes and characters. We got so into it we almost forgot to stop. It was worth the wait!

This video has been long promised, but has now finally appeared. Today I’m talking not only about the two Veronica Mars novels, but also about how Veronica Mars has transcended mediums so well.

Betwixt the Books Discuss! Reader’s (Booktuber’s) Guilt

Michaela and I did a thing! Would you look at that. This is generally referring to our struggles with our Popsugar Reading Challenge this year, and how our reading in general has been affected by the challenge and our booktuber duties. We discuss strategies for removing this guilt from our lives while also getting things like challenges done. Also we’re, like, together and awesome so. Worth the watch!
