Mini Review – The Fifth Season

Hello, everyone! I’ve got another mini review today. This was a re-read of a book I read almost five years ago. I never finished the trilogy despite loving the first book and have always wanted to read them all. So, one of my goals for this year is to finish the trilogy, starting with this re-read of The Fifth Season. I enjoyed it so much that I ended up bumping my rating up another star on Goodreads.

Top 5 Tuesday – Top 5 Books That Changed My Life

Hello everyone! Welcome back for another Top 5 Tuesday! The prompt for today is the top 5 books that changed my life. This was a really hard one for me this week.

ARC Mini Review – Obsidian

Today I have the first of three mini reviews that will be released this week. All three have been fantastic reads, and I’m excited to share about each of them!

Obsidian will be released this Tuesday, January 25, 2022. So, head below to see my thoughts on it, and then head out to pre-order or pick up your own copy.

First Lines Fridays (38) – January 21, 2022

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Mini Review – The Beautiful Ones

Hello, everyone! Today I have another mini review of a book that has been on my shelf for a while. I’ve seen lots about the author, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, on Twitter, and I’ve been wanting to read one of her books. The Beautiful Ones was an interesting choice, and it was somewhat outside the purview of my usual reads. After this one, I’ll definitely be reading more books by this author.

Mid-Month NetGalley Check-In – January 2022

It has been a very busy couple months since the last time I did a NetGalley check-in. I’ve been approved for a ton of new books, and these next few months are going to be filled with ARC reading as a result. You can see where I was two months ago in my last check-in post. My feedback ratio has dropped a bit more since then to 60%. I’ve completed 28 ARC reviews out of the total 47 for which I have been approved. I now have 18 unread books available to read on my shelf, which is the most I’ve ever had at one time. The reviews I completed in the last two months were Forging a Nightmare, Jade Legacy, Tethered Spirits, Daughter of the Moon Goddess, The Beholden, and Engines of Empire.
