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!
In which I read two fantasy romance series back to back, both of which had good first books, better second books, and then fell apart in the third one. After The Folk of the Air also disappointed me, am I doomed to read unsatisfying series for a while? Please leave recommendations for good ones in the comments, I’m struggling.
I read two incredibly similar fake engagement books back to back, but one had a little extra level of characters and relationships than the other. Watch on for more!
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!
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.
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!
Don’t worry guys; in between all these presidents, I’m still reading a LOT of romance novels. The thing is that, sometimes, I don’t have anything interesting to say. That is not the case (I think) with this one – which at once was super cute but also set off some pet peeves of mine. Let me explain!
In which I go over my top five and bottom five reads of this year. Weirdly, each group contains two romance novels, two nonfiction books, and one young adult novel. That was not planned, I swear.
