ARC Review: Our Last Echoes

I am a big thriller fan, but I’ve never been someone who could get into horror. While this isn’t Stephen King esque, it is pretty gruesome and intense and there were several moments that I had to take a break to calm my heart rate down.

The mystery of this world, of Sophia’s experience, and the disappearances on this island captivated me and I absolutely loved it!

ARC Review: Amelia Unabridged

I have been reading a lot of books about grief recently. A person I was friends with in high school passed away from cancer a few weeks ago. We weren’t close, but I knew her. Spent time with her.

Review: A Court of Silver Flames

I finally was able to read my copy of ACOSF and I loved it. I connected with Nesta’s journey a lot and found ways to help myself heal through her story, so if you’re not a fan of SJM and were planning on coming to my blog to harass me for reading this book, please don’t. I know SJM is a polarized author, I know not everyone supports her, but her books have really helped me face my own trauma and mental health and I appreciate her writing about those experiences. 

Please remember to be kind and that everyone has their own story to tell. Thank you.
