When The Beat Drops – Review

"This beat is everywhere, percussion lines woven together in colorful tonal textile before unraveling just enough to keep the crowd on their toes, hints of distorted cello and bright, pure vibra-phone darting in and out of the beats like playful fireflies." Mira has always heard the music in the world. Where the world hears noise, [...]

May Wrap-Up

How are we in June ALREADY?! It feels like I was in February like three days ago. This entire month felt like it flew by, and once again, I felt like I didn't get a lot read. Somehow I ended up reading 14, so not as slow as I thought. Who knew?! 72/125 - Goodreads [...]

I meant to post this yesterday, for #Maythe4thbewithyou!!! But in all honesty, #RevengeoftheFifth is just as appropriate. I mean, we need the Force to power through all these book right?

Our Little Secret – Review

"The police want to know if I'm in love with him, and they ask it like it's the simplest explanation rather than the most complicated." First love is intoxicating. Exhilarating. It's passionate, consuming, all-encompassing. We never forget our first loves. But what happens they won't forget you? Angela was friends with HP before she loved [...]

The Tangled Lands – Review

"Magic makes bramble, and bramble makes kisses, and kisses make sleep that lasts until Kpala's children tear us to pieces. It was always thus.

January Wrap-Up

"You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book!"  ~Dr. Suess January started off with a BANG!!! I ended December on a roll of fantastic books! And while I wish it could have been all five star reads all through the month, they can't all be winners... [...]

The City of Brass – Review

"There's no magic, no djinn, no spirits waiting to eat us up." Nahri doesn't believe in magic. Even if proof exists in her ability to heal, both herself and others. It doesn't matter. It's just a part of her. Not a magical being there to grant wishes of her every whim. She's just a con [...]
