House of Earth and Blood Review

I've been on my library's waitlist for this book for months. I got on the list when I realized I wouldn't be returning to college for the rest of the semester and I'd actually have time to read this book. Well, I didn't get to read it until recently, BUT it was worth the wait. … Continue reading House of Earth and Blood Review

TOG Marathon Day 6: Tower of Dawn

Welcome friends to the second to last post of my TOG Marathon! We're almost there! It's been a long time coming, but are there really any rules about a blog post marathon?

Thunderhead: the perfect follow up to Scythe

It's hard to put into words how good this series continues to be. The plot keeps expanding as Shusterman adds new perspectives. https://videopress.com/v/1dKjfT3Z?preloadContent=metadata I also really enjoyed getting to see the Thunderhead's perspective on not only what's happening currently, but it's perspective on EVERYTHING. I love that the Thunderhead is completely good. I'm not a … Continue reading Thunderhead: the perfect follow up to Scythe

I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter

I read this book for a college class this semester which was exciting because YA books rarely are used in college classes since they're so often not considered "literature." BOO. So, I was SUPER excited to have a reason to read this book since I'd seen it mentioned the book world a few times. Four … Continue reading I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter

Throne of Glass Marathon Day 1: Finishing what I started 6 years ago

Great Goddesses: I love my Greek Girls

As the title so clearly declares, I'm a HUGE fan of Greek mythology. I've been especially interested in the women in Greek myths. They're not as explored as the male characters in the myths and often the mortal women don't have a voice in the stories. This is the second book I've read by Nikita … Continue reading Great Goddesses: I love my Greek Girls

Exit, Pursued by a Bear: a Shakespearian retelling about trauma

I found this book super randomly and the title intrigued me. After learning what it was, how it connected to the book, and what the book was about, I had to read it. I'm glad I did. I don't usually read contemporary fiction unless it's romance. I've been interested in how girls deal with and … Continue reading Exit, Pursued by a Bear: a Shakespearian retelling about trauma
