Start of a Series Book Review: Into the Wilderness

Into the Wilderness by Sara Donatti. This is described as a ambitious sequel to one of my favorite classics The Last of the Mohiacns, though you don’t need to read that to read this. Written back in 1998, after Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, this is one of my top five historical fiction romance books. Unlike Outlander,Continue reading “Start of a Series Book Review: Into the Wilderness”

Discussion: Reading Slumps (And Why I Hate Them)

Hello all. I’m tentatively stepping out of hiatus and explaining where I’ve been. Answer: reading but not reviewing. Dnf’ing and not finishing. I’m struggling to figure out how I want my blog to go. While I like wrap ups, tbr updates, and new book releases it feels repetitive after a while. I grew tired ofContinue reading “Discussion: Reading Slumps (And Why I Hate Them)”

February is my Netgalley Reading Month: Here’s What I Plan to Tackle

Lately there’s a lot of books in my Netgalley account. Roughly 150+ books. I really need to tackle a lot of them, and get my ratio back under control. So for February I plan on reading nothing but Netgalley arcs. I’m going to try an arc a day, if I can manage it. If not,Continue reading “February is my Netgalley Reading Month: Here’s What I Plan to Tackle”

Book Review: Winterwood

Summary From Goodreads: Be careful of the dark, dark wood… Especially the woods surrounding the town of Fir Haven. Some say these woods are magical. Haunted, even.

Book Review: Splinters are children of wood

Summary From Goodreads: The wildly unrestrained poems in Splinters Are Children of Wood, Leia Penina Wilson’s second collection and winner of the Ernest Sandeen Prize in Poetry, pose an increasingly desperate question about what it means to be a girl, the ways girls are shaped by the world, as well as the role myth plays inContinue reading “Book Review: Splinters are children of wood”
