What I’m Reading After Game of Thrones

Game of Thrones is over. After ten years of us obsessing over who would end up on the iron throne, we finally have an answer. Well, kind of. But NO SPOILERS (though I will say I’m actually in the minority who liked the final episode), so let’s just talk about books instead. Because even though […]

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.

And there is a cat. This book is like my kryptonite. (All reviews are spoiler-free unless otherwise noted.) Synopsis (From Goodreads) Cassidy […]

Book Review | Spinning Silver

Rumpelstiltskin has been my favorite fairy tale since I was a little girl. So, naturally, I had to read Naomi Novik’s take on it. I loved Uprooted, and knew Spinning Silver would be no different. (All reviews are spoiler-free unless otherwise noted.) Synopsis (From Goodreads) Miryem is the daughter and granddaughter of moneylenders… but her father […]
