ARC Review: Bloodsworn by Scott Reintgen

Thank you so much to Netgalley and Crown Books for Young Readers/Random House Children’s for letting me read an e-ARC of Bloodsworn! I read an e-ARC of Ashlords last year (it was my first 2020 read) and I loved it so much, so I was super excited about Bloodsworn and it definitely didn’t disappoint!

Blog Tour: The Iron Raven by Julie Kagawa

Thank you so much to Inkyard Press for having me as a part of their blog tour for The Iron Raven by Julie Kagawa! I haven’t read any of her other books and even though I knew this was the beginning of a spin off series from her earlier books, I figured that I would read it anyway and if I liked it, then I’d give the earlier books a chance… well it looks like my TBR just got longer because I’m definitely about to read all of the other books set in this world! It’s got everything I love in it- how the heck have I not already read them???

ARC Review: The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna

Thank you so much to NetGalley and Random House Children’s for letting me read the Gilded Ones early! I was one of those super lucky people who requested my e-ARC on NetGalley a few weeks before the original release date for this book, so I was approved before the book was removed from the catalogue and I’m so happy I was! It was amazing! Like man y’all, if this isn’t on your TBR, make sure you add it now.

Blog Tour: Cast in Firelight by Dana Swift

Thank you so much to TBR and Beyond Tours for having me as a part of their Cast In Firelight tour (and for Delacorte and Netgalley for making it happen)! Make sure you check out the rest of the tour by following that link so you can see everyone else’s great posts! Also! even better! With this amazing tour, there’s a giveaway for a finished final copy of the book, so make sure you go enter that (unfortunately, this giveaway is US only, so to my international readers, I’m sorry about that).

I really enjoyed this book- it was such a fun, easy fantasy read and it had so much great Indian-ness in it, which I loved. My stop on the tour features both a review and my top five reasons to read Cast in Firelight, so I’ll do my review first and the reasons second!

ARC Review: Lore by Alexandra Bracken

Ahhhhhhh y’all! Lore was one of my absolute favorite reads of 2020 and I cannot wait to tell y’all all about it and why you need to grab it/read it when it comes out tomorrow! Thank you so much to Disney-Hyperion Books and Netgalley for letting me read Lore early. I had been looking forward to Lore for the longest time and I love everything about Greek mythology, so i knew I was going to enjoy it, especially because I love Alex Bracken’s writing, but man, I didn’t realize just how much I was going to love it!

Lore 5/5 Stars
