ARC August Wrap Up

ARC August Wrap Up

Okay, this month did not go nearly as well as I planned. I had nine books on my original TBR and then I added three more after the post went up. I only read a third of the 12 books. So frustrating, but on the other side, August was the best reading month I’d had in MONTHS, so it wasn’t a total waste. Books Finished: The Secret History of Us, This Is How It Happened, Caraval, Frostblood. Books DNFed: The […]

August Book Haul

Hellooooo. It’s time for another monthly book haul. Remember in July I said I was gonna slow my roll and relax on the book-buying with an aim for reading books I already own? Yeah, me either.

I’ve only ever fully covered one card, so coming within a hair’s breadth is so exciting for me. I do wish I had filled out those last three squares, but there’s no way I’m counting this as a defeat.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hidden Gems in Historical Fiction

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Hidden Gems in Historical Fiction

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week’s topic is hidden gems in historical fiction bekka’s picks 1. And I Darken by Kiersten White. I don’t know that this is necessarily “hidden” but it’s definitely a gem that deserves 100% more hype than it receives. I think maybe people just don’t know what it is? It’s an alternate history in which Vlad the Impaler is a girl. There are queer characters in abundance, angsty romance, […]
