The Witch’s Heart – Motherhood Woes

I know next to nothing about Norse mythology. I don’t even have a basic idea of the stuff from Marvel because, well, I don’t follow anything from that universe. But even the Marvel stuff seems to be a liberal interpretation of the original source material. Needless to say, I stepped out of my comfort zone…

Six Crimson Cranes – Takes Flight

Elizabeth Lim is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Not only do her books feature the most beautiful cover art I’ve ever seen (courtesy of talented artist Tran Nguyen), but her storytelling is delicately woven with such care that it’s too precious to describe. I really enjoyed her book, Spin the Dawn, and need…

The Library Of The Dead – Alive And Well

I needed a mental break. I just finished Sarah J. Maas’s latest book, A Court of Silver Flames, and there was a lot to process after going through the main character’s healing journey. How lucky was I to pick up The Library of the Dead by T.L. Huchu next? I couldn’t have planned this reading…

The Tangleroot Palace Cover

The Tangleroot Palace – Caught Up In Twisted Tales

I’m only one volume into Monstress by Marjorie Liu, but I enjoyed my experience with the graphic novel enough to know I wanted to pick up her new short story collection: The Tangleroot Palace. It wasn’t hard to buy into: Sana Takeda’s gorgeous art is gracing the cover and it promises tales of dangerous women.…

Victories Greater Than Death Cover

Victories Greater Than Death – Maybe Just Small Ones

Victories Greater Than Death by Charlie Jane Anders is the wokest space adventure I’ve ever been on and it was awesome. The book establishes pronouns for characters, celebrates gender identity and expression, displays love in all forms, and showcases a diverse cast of humans and aliens that would make the galaxy proud. And while I…

Lost In The Never Woods Cover 2

Lost In The Never Woods – Too Old For Neverland

Aiden Thomas has been all over my feed following the success of their novel Cemetery Boys. And while I’ve been meaning to pick up that book, I decided to start with Thomas’s newest story, Lost in the Never Woods, which came out in 2021. I had high expectations for this one, primarily because I’ve only…

The Descent of the Drowned Cover

The Descent Of The Drowned – Pull Me Under

I have perfectly curated my Instagram feed to solely feature artists that create book (and Star Wars) fan art. It’s glorious. I love seeing how people bring my favorite characters to life, and I indulge in each unique style and expression. I share this because this is how I discovered The Descent of the Drowned…

A Dowry of Blood Cover Crop

A Dowry Of Blood – Until Death Do Us Part

S.T. Gibson tells a deliciously dark tale about Dracula through the eyes of his wife and it’s everything. This was a story I never knew I needed until it was in my hands and then I proceeded to feverishly devour it like a newly turned vampire. A Dowry of Blood is equal parts horror and…

The Lights Of Prague Cover

The Lights Of Prague – Darkness Kept At Bay

It’s only May, but I’ve been in a spOoOky mood. Lucky for me, The Lights of Prague makes its debut at the most perfect time to pander to my weird spring vibes. Nicole Jarvis promised me monsters, ghosts, and magic - and this book definitely delivers. I was eager to get lost in the dark…
