Book Review: Winterfrost by Michelle Houts

This will be the first of many Christmas/winter themes books I will be reading, both this month and probably for the rest of winter. I don't what it is about winter that makes me want to read books set in cold places. Anyway, I was drawn to this book both because of its cover and … Continue reading Book Review: Winterfrost by Michelle Houts

Reading Wrap-Up: November, 2018

This month went...tolerably well. I'm still super behind with my 5 Week, 5 Tomes challenge, but I did read technically 8 books this months. I use the word 'technically' because three of them were crocheting books, which take only a fraction of the time to read. But they are still books, so I'm counting them. … Continue reading Reading Wrap-Up: November, 2018

Authors I Really Want to Read More

I have a massive TBR, which seems to be a common problem with a lot of readers. Usually, it's the case of not having enough time to keep up with all the great books. But with me, I'm the type of reader who is, well, a bit flighty. I jump from genre to genre, author … Continue reading Authors I Really Want to Read More

Book Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

There are some books I read because I love the author and other books I get because I like the premise. And then there's books like this one, that I read just because I like the cover. It is a rather shallow reasoning, but, what can I say, I'm an impulse reader. I'm usually against … Continue reading Book Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Book Review: The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson (a.k.a., another Rapunzel Retelling)

I read this book for two reasons. First, the cover is absolutely beautiful. Second, I am easily convinced to read any fairytale retelling even though more often than not I am disappointed with them. This book was…not at all what I was expecting…but I’ll get into that in a minute. Release: November, 2015 Synopsis: The … Continue reading Book Review: The Golden Braid by Melanie Dickerson (a.k.a., another Rapunzel Retelling)

Book Review: Rakkety Tam by Brian Jacques

You sick of book reviews yet? Well, don’t worry, because this one will be the last review following BookTubeAThon, as I never did end up finishing my final book, Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty (though I will finish it eventually, I promise). Anyway, this series (a.ka., the Redwall series) has been on … Continue reading Book Review: Rakkety Tam by Brian Jacques

Book Review: The Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

This is the fourth book I have read by Terry Pratchett, and probably the one I am most familiar with. In 2006, there was a miniseries called Terry Pratchett's Hogfather, starring Michelle Dockery (from Downton Abbey), Marc Warren, David Jason, and other fabulous British actors. I loved the miniseries, and have watched it multiple times … Continue reading Book Review: The Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

Book Review: The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill

This is the first book I completed for BookTubeAThon this month, and I read it in one day. Though, I will say the quality of this book made it easy for me to read quickly. I can say with little reservations that I loved this book, and I am not a massive fantasy fan. But … Continue reading Book Review: The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill
