ARC Review: Gravemaidens by Kelly Coon

Thank you so much to NetGalley and Delacorte Press for giving me the opportunity to read/review Gravemaidens early! I follow the author, Kelly Coon, on Twitter, so I’ve been seeing so much about Gravemaidens that I was super excited to be able to read it!

ARC Review: Fireborne by Rosaria Munda

Thank you so much to Netgalley and  G.P Putman’s Sons Book For Younger Readers for giving me the opportunity to read Fireborne early! I hadn’t really heard too much about it, but when I saw it was a read now book for 24 hours, I had to jump on it. It’s pitch as Game of Thrones meets Red Rising and I love both of those, so I was really excited to read it!

September Review and October TBR

Happy October y’all! October is such a great month- we start fall, the weather becomes beautiful, and Halloween!!! September, on the other hand, was not a great month for me- I had a two day work training, my business unit got re-organized out of no where, I had to get my wisdom teeth removed, and I had to take a week long business trip, so I definitely didn’t stick to my September TBR very well (mainly because I went on a crazy Christina Lauren kick at the end of the month)

Here are the books I read in September:

The Silvered Serpents – I  love, love, loved this book! I should be publishing a review for this one soon!

Crown of Feathers – I really enjoyed listening to this book and I can’t wait for book two.

Fireborne – Fireborne was definitely interesting and I should be publishing a review for this one soon too.

Five Dark Fates – I love these books and I definitely think that Five Dark Fates was better than Two Dark Reigns

Roomies – This book began my obsession with Christina Lauren’s books and her writing! SO GOOD

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating – I really liked this book too- Christina Lauren is so good at creating fun characters

Dating You/Hating You – This book was so cool- I loved learning about talent agents and man, I love Carter and Evie!

My Favorite Half-Night Stand – I love books about ridiculously smart people who are super oblivious haha

Love and Other Words – this was probably the slowest Christina Lauren book I read, but it was still really good and I loved it for sure!

In October, I’d like to read:

Serpent and Dove – I’m listening to this right now and it’s so good!

Bloodwitch – I’ve been reading Bloodwitch for what feels like ever right now, but I’m liking it for sure.

Sensational – I loved Spectacle, so I’m super excited to read Sensational

Bid My Soul Farewell – I loved Give the Dark my Love, so Bid My Soul Farewell has been high on my list for a while. I started it when it came out, so I should hopefully be finishing it this month!

King of Scars – I feel like I’ve been reading King of Scars forever- not because I’m not enjoying it, but because other things seem to be carrying my attention more. I’m going to try and make it a priority to finish it this month though!

The Merciful Crow – The Merciful Crow is going to be my next audiobook as soon as I finish Serpent and Dove!

Sisters of Shadow and Light – I have an e-arc of this one from NetGalley right now, and since it comes out in early November, I’m going to read it and have my review done by the end of the month.

Twice in a Blue Moon – I was just accepted to review this one over on NetGalley and with my love of Christina Lauren books going strong, this is definitely going to be one of my first reads of the month.

Lair of Dreams – It’s FINALLY time for me to try and get to this book- especially since it’s fall and spooky and this book is so nice and creepy!

What are y’all reading this October?

 

Review: Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim

Ahhhh I follow Elizabeth Lim on Twitter and as soon as she announced Spin the Dawn (and pitched it as Project Runway meets Mulan), I was hooked. I entered all of the ARC giveaways and tried my luck at getting a copy via NetGalley to no avail, so when I saw that my library had purchased a copy and I could be the first person on the hold list, I jumped at the opportunity. When I checked out the book, I also checked out The Traitor’s Kingdom, so it definitely was in great company. Unfortunately, I hit a reading slump (which really was more of an influx of extra work at my real job and me finding a cycle studio that I’m obsessed with, both of which meant less time for reading) so I wasn’t able to finish the book before I had to return it to the library- BUT my subscription to Scribd came in clutch because they had the audiobook version of Spin the Dawn ready to go for me! Woop Woop!
