Is There Super Fun Scifi, But Not For Teens? YES. Slaves of the Switchboard of Doom by Bradley W. Schenck

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★★  5 stars If I were you, I’d just read this book already. But stick around, if you want to find out why. So let’s ignore the somewhat tacky cover for a bit. (I’m glad I can look past the cover. I’m better than that! But I know that I nearly didn’t click…

May Stats Fever! And Sunday Post #9

May has been such a good reading month for me! I read 13 books and that’s probably the most I’ve read in a month this year. So happy! Finally feel like I’m catching up on my reading goals! (although my stats still say I’m behind…) I have also acquired 23 books this month, which might also be pushing my record of…

A Rock’n’roll Memoir About Learning To Love Yourself Dear Reflection by Jessica Bell

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★✬  4.5 stars Emotional review coming up. Get your napkins ready! When I requested this title, I was excited, because hey – a rock’n’roll teens memoir? Written by someone whose parents were actually musicians, bohemians? Man, that sounds good. Who wouldn’t want to read that? Then when I let it sit for…

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★✬☆  3.5 stars “So, writer, what sort of tale will you tell me tonight?” “Well, reader, get yourself some strong tea and a nightlight, because I have a warm retro tale about street urchins in the 1930’s and… magic.” “My my, writer, that sure sounds swell!” “Brace yourself, reader, it truly is, even…

Sunday post #7 It was a great reading week <3

Linking up with the usual crew for the Sunday meme at Kimba’s book blog. ~ On The Blog ~ This week I’ve only posted once, but it was a fun review of a book I didn’t really like so much. Sharing the review of The Finding of Martha Lost, or how I failed to find a spark in a story about secret underground libraries,…

Rogue mages, steampunk spells and secrecy – Brother’s Ruin by Emma Newman What looks like a beginning to a truly captivating series

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★✬  4.5 stars This review has been due for a while, I’m sorry, Emma Newman! (haha…) But here we go. Brother’s Ruin was a book I’d been waiting to read like no tomorrow! I was sadly denied an advance copy, so I had to ultimately wait for the release (like all mere mortals… kidding!),…

Why I decided NOT TO have a giveaway on the blog for this book Olga by Ted Kelsey, or my first PoC rep issue with a book

Check out on Goodreads Not going to rate This post is going to be problematic. It was a changing experience for me as a blogger, that’s for sure. Most of the time we just read books we like, or don’t like. Simple as that. But sometimes the issues are slightly bigger than us and our likes or dislikes. That tends…

Why were they called The Girls With Radioactive Bones? The Radium Girls, by Kate Moore

You might wonder who The Radium Girls were…. They were called The Girls With Radioactive Bones. There were newspaper headlines such as ‘Living Dead’ Win In Court’ about them. And all that – almost a hundred years ago. Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★★  5 stars I’m going to tell you a very painful, sad, but strong story of fighting for…

Dead world, primal mind eating monster, kids with powers – Children of the Different, S.C.Flynn 3.5 stars, but it's definitely worth a read if you love fantasy

Check out on Goodreads ★★★✬☆  3.5 stars Received in giveaway I have been reading this book for quite a while. The reason it took me so long though, was because I was listening to it on a reading app, rather than just reading. I have received this one on a giveaway. Having finished it, I was struggling with the rating…
