Thank you so much to Delacorte Press and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Bound by Firelight! This is the second book in The Wickery series and I read book one (Cast in Firelight) last year and I loved it, so I was super excited to read this one.

ARC Review: Castles in Their Bones by Laura Sebastian

Thank you so much to Delacorte Press and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of Castles in Their Bones! This book was my first 5 star read of the year, which is a big deal since it was the 16th book I read this year! If you haven’t already picked up Castles in Their Bones or put it on your TBR list, you NEED to do that! Also, let’s talk about how amazing that cover is- so gorgeous! I want someone to do my hair like that all the time please.

ARC Review: In Every Generation by Kendare Blake

Thank you so much to Disney-Hyperion and Netgalley for letting me read an ARC of In Every Generation! I’ve never actually seen an episode of Buffy, but I’ve always wanted to be a Buffy person, so I would like read people’s discussions about the show on Tumblr and all the Gifs, so I feel like I kinda know the basics? Anyway, use that as the basis for my knowledge of the source material as you go into my review.

January Wrap-Up

Man, I can’t believe that we’re already a quarter of the way through February! It feels like this month just started! January was a busy month for my family- we have a lot of January birthdays plus baby nephew was just born near the end of January, so definitely a lot going on!

But, let’s talk about the important stuff. Books. Here’s everything I read in January:

ARC Review: The Iron Sword by Julie Kagawa

Happy Monday y’all! Man, I cannot believe that January is going by as quickly as it is! It’s already the end of the month and it feels like the year just began. On one hand, it’s a good thing, since there are so many great books coming out in 2022, but on the other hand, 2023, which used to feel like just a dream is 1/12 of the way closer now. But in terms of books, one of the great books coming out tomorrow, February 1st, is The Iron Sword by Julie Kagawa. This is book 2 in the Iron Fey: Evenfall series and I read book 1 last year and it was super fun. It’s a spinoff of the original Iron Fey series and the Iron Fey spinoff, and the first series of Iron Fey books I’ve read. As always, thank you so much to Inkyard Press and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of The Iron Sword!

Review: To All the Dogs I’ve Loved Before by Lizzie Shane

Happy Monday y’all! I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was way too short (as usual), but enjoyable! I didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted to nor did I write any of the reviews that I wanted to, but I guess that’s what the week’s for, right?

Anyway, on to today’s review! I’m obsessed with the Pine Hollow books by Lizzie Shane- I read all three of them so quickly during the time I had off around Christmas and New Years (feel free to read my reviews for book 1, The Twelve Dogs of Christmas, and book 2, Once Upon a Puppy, before you read my review for this one) and man y’all they were so good! I cannot wait to read book four when it comes out this year! As always, thank you so much to the wonderful folks at Forever for sending me a copy of To All the Dogs I’ve Loved Before- y’all are the best!

2021 in review: Overall reading stats

Man y’all, I’m thinking through all of the 2021 review blogs I want to write and there are a lot of them, so I think I’m going to create a series for them- hopefully I’ll be done by the middle of February, but who knows how quickly I’ll be able to write them (and the middle of February is of course assuming I publish like one a week).
