The Journey Begins

~Introducing Me~      Introduction posts have never been my forte. Likely they will never be, and I hope that in the future I don’t have to write many more of them. Introduction posts are difficult because there is not a concise way to sum up the messy conundrum that is my brain and my life.

Book Review: All These Wonders

Usually, when I read a collection, I don’t choose anthologies. I pick the solid thing, the expected thing, the thing that I know will produce the results that I want. I pick the collection of stories or poems or essays by a person whose work I’m familiar with. I pick the stories of the people…

Book Review: Scorpio Races

For years, my friends, fellow students, fellow teachers, and fellow bookstagrammers have been trying to convince me to read Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. I read and loved her Raven Cycle series, but I never picked up Scorpio Races. (I don’t know why because I love a good stand alone.)  Mainly, I consider that I…

Book Review: The Near Witch

I love a good fantasy book. And while I’m not a fan of the YA genre as a whole, I’ve discovered that many gorgeous Adult Fantasy authors often write in both genres. (I wish I was that versatile.) One of those authors is Victoria Schwab, author of The Near Witch, a book I recently read and…

Poetry Collection Mini Reviews

As most of you are aware, I have a deep fondness for poetry. While I don’t write much of it myself, I enjoy reading it and have multitudes of collections sitting untouched on my shelves. So, I took the month of January to sit down and read through a handful of them. Go figure, only…

Guest Post: Why is the Earl of Dentin so Attractive?

As always, I’m excited to announce that Rachel Rossano has yet another wonderful book prepared for you. Some of you will recall my rants this winter about the editing process for this book. Others might recall previous reviews I’ve written for Rossano’s books. Either way, I’m pleased to announce that her next release, Mercy, goes live…

Book Review: Auralia’s Colors

A dear friend of mine had been begging me to read this book for months. Amidst a busy schedule, my running excuse was that the local library didn’t have it and I couldn’t read fast enough to interlibrary loan it.  A week ago, she sent me a copy as a late Christmas present. I have…
