The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi is an amazingly fun, intricate fantasy heist that I adored every second of. (Also release day is definitely tomorrow Jan. 15, but I couldn't wait to post this!) It opens in the middle of a heist & inserts you into a magical alternate Paris circa 1889, where the Order … Continue reading Release Day Review: The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi

Earlier this week, I posted by reading by the numbers wrap up for 2018. Now, it's time to take a more qualitative approach to my 2018 reading life with Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner's annual end of year book survey!

Okay, so I know I said I was back a few months ago, and then that kind of became a non-starter. This time I am (hopefully) really back! It's a new year, I feel like I've gotten a handle on the new job, & life is finally settled down. I really miss blogging & all … Continue reading My 2018 Reading Life in Numbers

I'm playing major catch up on reviews since returning! I read three or so Netgalleys months back before starting the new job, but never got around to reviewing them. I apologize that the review will likely be short, but I read this months ago! Anyway, here goes nothing! The Trial and Execution of the Traitor … Continue reading Review: The Trial and Execution of the Traitor George Washington by Charles Rosenberg
I'm not going to lie, but it's been a long while since I read this book. This review will likely be a "mini" review, but I'm going to do my best but it was sooooo good! The story follows Miranda and Lucia, Chinese-American sisters who are very different from one another. It is a story … Continue reading Review: Everything is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee

This is just a short note to let you know … Continue reading I’m Back!

Set in late 1930s England, this sci-fi novel is also a spy noir thriller, and I really enjoyed the mash-up. The spies followed are … Continue reading Summerland by Hannu Rajaniemi
