Wherein Michaela and I review Iron Widow. We did in fact like this book, even though we are a bit critical of it. Give it some grace as it is a debut and look forward to the sequel coming in 2023.
Vespertine by Margaret Rogerson Joint Review | Betwixt the Books
Wherein we discuss our Second Chance book from last year and why it was the perfect choice for this challenge. We may have a difference of opinion when it comes to the ending … and there is a bit of a joke towards the end that we hope makes you smile!
Reading Breakdown | Why Am I DNFing Books I Used to Love?
This is very chatty and kind of all over the place, but I’m having some issues reading a genre I used to love above all others and it’s really throwing me for a loop. Enjoy, I guess?
Year of the Reaper ARC Review | Betwixt the Books Reviews

Defy the Night ARC Review | YA fantasy that doesn’t disappoint!
After Realm Breaker let me down, I was so scared that Brigid Kemmerer’s new series might do the same. Thankfully, I can say it did NOT! I loved it, and I can’t wait to tell you why.
Realm Breaker Broke Me | ARC Review
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?
Am I Cursed? | Sands of Arawiya by Hafsah Faizal Series Review
Let me be clear: I loved the first book in this series, We Hunt the Flame. I did not, however, find the second book (We Free the Stars) to be a great conclusion. It was fine! But not great. And I am on a streak of series that don’t end as well as I think they should … so I’m cranky.
2021 Q1 Wrap Up | 32 Books Between Jan and Mar
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!
