I know I want to get a lot of reading done in the little bit of summer I … Continue reading Let’s Talk About: Reading Spaces
The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco is a beautiful, fantastical story. Framed as a flashback, it tells the story of Tea, a young asha (read: witch) in training. Her power? Necromancy, which is alternately loved and feared in her society. Her power is discovered when she is young, and accidentally raises her brother Fox from … Continue reading Review: The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
This book was interesting, I suppose. It kind of reminded me of a shorter version of Game of Thrones, set in ancient China. It was billed as a fantasy, and while there are fantastical elements, it didn't come across to me as mainly fantasy, if that makes sense. The novel follows multiple viewpoints across ancient … Continue reading Review: Portal of a Thousand Worlds by Dave Duncan

It's a YA sci-fi pick, and I found that I enjoyed it. The story follows Elder & Amy, both on a spaceship headed for a new … Continue reading Review: Across the Universe by Beth Revis
This novel was an unexpected pleasure. I randomly picked it up off of a library shelf and read the back and thought it sounded interesting so I gave it a go. It also fit into the friendship category on Fall Bookish Bingo, so that was an added bonus. It follows Nora, a thirty-two year old … Continue reading Review: The Invisibles by Cecilia Galante
This book is a complex, character-driven, political dark YA fantasy. It was so different from what I expected, but in a very good way. I love complexity in fantasy. I also love YA fantasy, though a lot of them follow some of the same tropes that make them somewhat predictable. While I still love those … Continue reading Review: Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
