ARC Review: The Keeper of Night by Kylie Lee Baker

Happy Tuesday y’all! This has been such a long week already and I’m so ready to sleep and the weekend- unfortunately, it’s still a few days off haha but we can make it! Happy release day to The Keeper of Night! I was able to read an eARC of this one (thank you so much to Inkyard Press and Netgalley for letting me do that) and man y’all, this was such a cool book!

ARC Review: A Spindle Splintered by Alix E Harrow

Happy Thursday y’all! I hope everyone’s doing well! I’m taking a much needed day off- no apple picking though because the weather’s gross, but I’m going to be running a bunch of errands and relaxing, so I think that’s worth it for sure.

Thank you so much to Tor and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of A Spindle Splintered! I’ve heard such great things about Alix Harrow’s books, so I was super excited to read this one. I didn’t realize how short it was until I started reading it (I think it’s only about like 130 or so pages), but I didn’t feel like it was short while the story was being told, so that was amazing! A Spindle Splintered came out on October 5th (along with like a bazillion other incredible books), so make sure you go out and grab it after you read my review!

ARC Review: Luminous by Mara Rutherford

Happy Wednesday y’all! It’s super cloudy here today and I was supposed to go apple picking tomorrow, but it’s supposed to storm in the mountains where the orchard I always go to is, so it’s looking like I’m going to have to skip the apple picking and grab them from a farm stand or the grocery store.

So many books came out yesterday, so I have a review for another one of them ready to go for y’all today. I really enjoyed the other books I read by Mara Rutherford, so I was very excited to give Luminous a go! Thank you so much to Inkyard Press and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of this book.

ARC Review: When Night Breaks by Janella Angeles

You know how sometimes you read a book that’s just so incredibly amazing and then you kind of don’t know what to do with yourself afterwards? I felt that way when I read Where Dreams Descend last year and it happened again when I finished When Night Breaks. Thank you so much to Wednesday books and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of this book! Make sure y’all go out and grab this one tomorrow (and if you haven’t read Where Dreams Descend yet, make sure you grab that one first since it’s the first book in the duology and you’ll 100% be lost without it).

September Wrap-Up

Happy October y’all! I’m so excited for October! It’s such a fun month- fall really begins, I always try and go apple picking, and it’s Halloween time! And, even better, it’s the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year- the holidays! I’m a big fan.

You know what else I was a big fan of? All of the great books I read in September! Even though September was a ridiculously busy month at work and with the fam, I was able to read a good amount of books. AND most of them were really good, so that’s definitely a great sign for the rest of the year.

ARC Review: The Inn on Sweetbriar Lane by Jeannie Chin

Happy Thursday y’all! Ahhh I cannot believe that we’re on our last day of September! Only one quarter left in this year, which is crazy because it feels like 2021 just started! Thank you so much to Forever/Grand Central Publishing for sending me a free finished copy of The Inn on Sweetbriar Lane and for approving my request for the eARC on Netgalley! I started reading the finished copy of this book but then transitioned to the eARC, because sometimes it’s just easier to read on my phone haha The Inn on Sweetbriar Lane came out on September 28, so make sure you go out and grab it as soon as you’re done reading my review!

Happy Wednesday y’all! Man, I’m exhausted and I definitely do not want to be doing anything but napping today, but someone’s gotta work (and take breaks from working by writing blog posts).

Thank you so much to Forever/Grand Central Publishing and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of No Ordinary Christmas.

ARC Review: Lakesedge by Lyndall Clipstone

Two posts in one day?! What is the world coming to! I was actually trying to have this post written and published yesterday, but unfortunately, my brother and sister in law were over for most of the day, so I had no time at all to finish writing it.

Thank you so much to Fierce Reads/Macmillan Children’s and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC or Lakesedge! I hadn’t actually read anything really about this book before I read it, but I was obsessed with the cover, so I was the most excited to read it, and I think y’all will be too! Lakesedge comes out on September 28th, so make sure y’all go out and grab it!

ARC Review: Iron Widow by Xiran Jay Zhao

Happy Friday y’all! I really wanted to get this review out on Wednesday but man y’all, this book took me a little longer to read than I expected (not because I didn’t like it or anything, but because I was too tired to read on Tuesday, didn’t read too much on Wednesday, and then finally was able to carve out reading time yesterday). Iron Widow was one of those books that pulled me in because of the amazing cover and kept me in because of the incredible writing and the really cool plot. Thank you so much to Penguin Teen/Penguin Random House Canada and Netgalley for letting me read an eARC of this book! Iron Widow came out on September 21, so make sure you go grab a copy of the book as soon as you’re done reading my review!

Iron Widow 4/5 Stars
