Book Review | The Poppy War

I’ve been meaning to read The Poppy War since it was released last year. But, to be honest, I haven’t had the best luck with fantasy lately, so every time I thought about picking it up, I just wasn’t excited to do so. And then I read The Priory of the Orange Tree and was […]

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.) […]
