Two squares down!
In which I have a lot of thoughts about this epic historical fantasy.
This was my read for the Justice square of the TarotBLM Reading Bingo! I turned the final page of this book and was left with the feeling that I needed to reread it immediately. Because I think the reason this didn’t wow me might well have been that I just wasn’t in the right headspace […]
I’m honestly not sure what made me pick this up – I’m a lot more wary of YA than I used to be, and the blurb made Throne of Swans sound very predictable. I guessed this was going to be some kind of Swan Princess retelling. The cover is fairly dull (for my tastes). All […]
If you’re looking for a book where there’s a clear Dark Side and no question who the heroes are, this is not the book for you. If you want an adventure, a heist, capers and shenanigans, this is not the book for you. If you’re looking for a comfort read, a quick read, a fun […]

So here’s my attempt to talk about this groundbreaking show and how much it means to me! * Tonight the finale of the first season of Motherland: Fort Salem airs on Freeform, just days after […]
So this is my first comic/graphic novel review for Wyrd & Wonder, and – look, listen. Listen. I have only one thing to say about this book. I LOVED IT SO MUCH!!! I don’t read comics or graphic novels very often – I’m picky as hell – but this was an unmitigated delight from start […]
