Book Review: Into the Drowning Deep

Into the Drowning Deep made it onto my reading list because it just seemed like the perfect gritty mermaid story – one that so many of us have waited to hit the shelves. Sure, I love the beautiful myths and sugary scenes of lovely underwater scenery of flaxen haired women. I even love the darker imagery of smirking, half naked gals who flirt with pirates and bask in their own lovely forms. But mermaid lovers know that there is also another side to the story that is just waiting to come to light. not this book Mira Grant is here more »

2017 End of Year Bookish Survey

Huge thank you to Jamie over at Perpetual Page Turner for hosting this survey again! Seven years and running!

But here is to the next year, and I really hope to start finding some sort of love for blogging, reading, and conversing online again. The best way to start, personally, is to try something familiar.   Number Of Books You Read: 25 total books (5 DNFs) Number of Re-Reads: 0 more »

Book Review: The Takedown

The Takedown – a novel that grabbed my attention based on the cover at my local bookstore. I loved that a PoC was on the front, I loved all the little pictures and how sci-fi it seemed right from the start. So I had to pick it up. The premise was just perfect as well: I loved that the synopses was very unapologetic and I loved that technology and safety with online data was the central theme of the novel. I hadn’t heard anything of this one before the release (which I’m not surprised from Disney) but I decided to more »
