January 2021 TBR

Now that we are jumping into the New Year, I’m jumping back into my ARC TBR. I have a lot of ARCs I’m overdue on and a lot of upcoming ARCs to read. While I also have a very large finished copy TBR, I want to try and get my NetGalley rating higher and so I’m focusing on these books right now. 

So here are the books I’m planning to read in January!

Review: A Universe of Wishes

I posted my welcome post for A Universe of Wishes anthology edited by Dhonielle Clayton earlier this month, but I never posted my full review. So here are my thoughts on this anthology!

Thank you again to Penguin Teen for supplying me with a finished copy for review. This has not impacted my thoughts or opinions on this book.

Review: A Sky Beyond the Storm

The final book in the An Ember in the Ashes series, A Sky Beyond the Storm by Sabaa Tahir has officially crushed my soul. Did I expect to be upset once the series ended? Yes. Did it still hit me hard? Absolutely. I cried like a little baby once the story was over and I’m just so glad I was able to follow along this journey. Here is my spoiler free review!

Festive Christmas Book Tag

It’s Christmas today, and while I’m Jewish, I also have lots of friends and some family who celebrate Christmas, so what better way to help celebrate than with a Festive Christmas Book Tag!? I found this tag on Jenniely‘s blog, but it was originally posted by GirlReading on YouTube. I love the Holiday’s and December in general, not only because it’s my birthday month, but because it just feels like such a joyful, thankful time.

Mini Review: How the Prince of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories

It’s Christmas Eve Eve, I’ve been drinking, and I don’t have anything planned for today, so it’s a great day to do a mini review! Today, I am reviewing  How the King of Elfhame Learned to Hate Stories by Holly Black. This is a short story collection told from the perspective of Cardan from The Cruel Prince. If you have not read the trilogy yet, this short story collection will spoil you for the series, so please be warned.

The Holiday Drinks Book Tag

It’s Christmas Eve Eve, so what better way to get in some holiday cheer than with a book tag! It was so hard to decide between the two recent tags I saw on Alexa @ Writing the Universe, but I decided to settle on this one! This tag is originally from Waves of Pages – so be sure to check out the original post and Alexa’s post for their answers! And if you decide to do this book tag, be sure to tag me so I can see what your responses are too!

ARC Review: Rebel Sisters

I finally finished it! I started reading this book on December 6th and finished it on December 21st. TWO WEEKS. It took me two weeks to finish this book because A Vow So Bold and Deadly put me in a reading slump! Ugh!

Anyways! Yes, I finally finished Rebel Sisters by Tochi Onyebuchi. If you haven’t read War Girls yet, I highly suggest checking out my spoiler free review of that book. This review may contain spoilers for the first book though it will be a spoiler free review. I received an ARC from Razorbill through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This has not impacted my review and all opinions are my own.

Five Books I Bought Solely Based on their Covers

I’m back again with another collab with Alexa @ Writing the Universe! Today, we are going over five books we bought solely based on their covers and rating whether we would buy them or not. I know, I know, you shouldn’t judge a book based on its cover, but if you saw what books we’re talking about today, you would understand these are a necessity. I am a total sucker for a gorgeous book cover and if a book is pretty and fits in a genre I like to read, I will buy it. So today, here are some books I bought solely based on their covers, and Alexa’s opinion on whether she would do the same!

Books Amazon Made Me Buy: Part II

It’s been a little while since I’ve done this post and since then I have been pressured to buy so many more books from Amazon. Any time I open my BookBub emails or go on Amazon, I end up getting more books. Usually about $0.99 or free, depending on what’s available.

So here’s some of the titles I’ve recently gotten from Amazon!

Mini Review: The Princess and the Pawn

Today, I’m doing a mini review for The Princess and the Pawn (The Raven and the Dove #0.5) by Kaitlyn Davis. This is a prequel novella for The Raven and the Dove, which if you haven’t read, you absolutely need to! I will link my review here for that book. You can definitely read the prequel before reading the first book, as it’s intended, although it’s not necessary to read the first book.

December 2020 Mid-Month Update

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe 2021 is in THREE WEEKS. That is way too soon for comfort! I can’t believe the disaster that was 2020 is almost over and while I’m so excited for it to not be 2020 anymore, I’m also terrified of what’s to come.

So, what better way to distract myself from the chaos of the New Year than with a mid-month update!

ARC Review: Soulswift

Today I am reviewing Soulswift by Megan Bannen. No joke, this book is a perfect combination of Serpent & Dove and Wicked Saints in terms of some tropes and the overall vibes. Forced marriage between two enemies? Check. Religious differences impacting the fate of the world? Check. Creepy, disturbing monsters hunting main characters in the woods? Check again!

ARC Review: A Vow So Bold and Deadly

This is such a hard review for me to write. I loved A Curse So Dark and Lonely and when I received an ARC of A Vow So Bold and Deadly in the mail, I damn near fainted. Now, the series is over and I just – I’m dead. This review might be a mix of coherent thoughts and babble, but bear with me! Just know that this book is amazing and I loved every second of it!
