Book Review | My Lovely Wife

Over the past year or so, I’ve been reading quite a few thrillers. They’re (almost) always quick, exciting reads. And they’re really just fun. I’ve been in the mood for a new thriller, and was looking for one that would blow my mind. Samantha Downing’s debut novel, My Lovely Wife, fit the bill. (All reviews are […]

Shakespeare Mini Reviews (21-24)

It’s time for another Shakespeare review post! I’ve was a bit overambitious this year, and have actually read six plays since my last review. But since I only have two left total, I’ll save two of them for my final review (so four now, and four later). Today’s batch is all three- and four-star reads, […]

Book Review | The Waking Forest

It’s been a while since I’ve read a young adult fantasy book. So I have been on the lookout for a new one to pick up. Alyssa Wees’s debut novel, The Waking Forest caught my attention.

I was hoping for a new Celeste Ng, and that’s not exactly what I got. While I don’t regret giving this book a chance, it definitely […]

Book Review | The Women’s War

The words “feminist fantasy” are a major weakness for me. I love fantasy, and I really love feminist literature, so I kind of have to read any book marketed that way. Naturally, I was sold as soon as I read the synopsis for Jenna Glass’s debut novel, The Women’s War. (All reviews are spoiler-free unless otherwise noted.) […]

Book Review | Daisy Jones & The Six

Last year, I read and loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid. I knew I needed to read more of TJR’s books, and added a few to my TBR. Obviously, when I saw she had a new book coming out, I didn’t even hesitate to get my hands on it. And I am so glad I […]
