Book Review | Confessions of the Fox

I love historical fiction, and I love reading diverse books. They’re easily two of my favorite things. So when I found a diverse historical fiction book with a trans main character, my response was yes, please!

Book Review | The Song of Achilles

The Song of Achilles is one of those books I’ve had on my shelf for a while, and hadn’t yet picked up, mostly because I was afraid it wouldn’t live up to the hype. But when two people in two weeks told me I should read it, I decided it was time to finally pick it […]
