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 »

Book Review: The Walls Around Us

Okay, that’s it. I am done. This is my third Nova Ren Suma novel and it’s time for me to admit that her books just don’t work for me. I love her writing, I love her storytelling, and this book was completely a 5 star for me until I got to the damn ending. She always fucks me with the endings. And it’s just a shame, because atmosphere is such an important part of a novel for me, and there is no other author that excels more at writing atmosphere than this one. But it all falls apart for me more »

Better Late Than Never: Reviews of eARCs for the Lazy (3)

Welcome to another edition of Better Late Than Never: Reviews of eARCs for the Lazy! Do you have review copies piling up? Do you have eARCs that you requested but never got to because you got overwhelmed by life? Or did you just bite off more than you can chew? (That’s me.) At some point I was still hoping I could review these books (even though my review wouldn’t really be of use to the publisher anymore) because it would be still useful to readers, and also to me, because the pile-up was giving me anxiety every time I thought more »

Book Review: Edgeland

I am so addicted to this series. It’s incredibly fucking weird and weird doesn’t always work for me, but I love the world-building and the imagination of the authors. Edgeland is a standalone sequel to Nightfall, which I also loved. I am aware that that book didn’t work for everybody, but if it worked for you, you will most likely enjoy Edgeland as well. You don’t have to have read Nightfall to enjoy Edgeland either, but you should read it at some point anyway because the authors have mentioned that they want to make characters from both meet in the more »

An Adult, A Young Adult, and A Middle Grade #2

I’m back for the second edition of An Adult, a Young Adult, and a Middle Grade! I’ve been doing lots of reading, and I have some short reviews of those books that I’ve been enjoying! Just to remind you about this feature: I’ve been going through some major, MAJOR blogger burnout. I haven’t felt like writing reviews and I’ve only wanted to read. Book after book after book. Let’s be real. Writing reviews can be a really tedious thing if it’s not something that feels like a strength. For me, it isn’t. I’ve never felt like I was great at more »

Book Review: My Best Friend’s Exorcism

I don’t know exactly where to begin with this book, tbh. This had all the makings to be a perfect me book. Campy, 80s setting with suspense and the strange. What particularly drew my attention to this title was that it’d been on a list of books to read if you love Stranger Things. (Don’t know what Stranger Things is? Get on Netflix now.) I also have an odd adoration to that cover. Yeah yeah, don’t judge a book by a cover… But you and I both know that everyone does it anyway. It’s not a terrible book at all. more »
