Libraries for Life: March 21st

My library addiction is catching up with me this week. I've got unread books due tomorrow that I can't renew because they're on hold! I picked up four new books I'm super excited about, but I can't even look at them because of the backlog! Welcome to the life of someone without self-control, when it... Continue Reading →

Ancillary Justice by Anne Leckie

People have been recommending this book to me for a few years now. Not just my science-fiction-loving family, but people all over the bookish internet, as well. I was excited about it. I was convinced it was going to amazing. I hated it. It's been a long time since I have hated a book so... Continue Reading →

Fuel for the Fire: March 19th

I am slowly working my way through The Black Unicorn by Audre Lorde. Her poems are powerful and present and as vital today as they must have been when this book was first published, in 1978. There are so many I could quote, but with the return of the light, and the scent of spring coming up... Continue Reading →

What A Week: March 12th-18th

My reading this week was a bit...meh. I'm not sure why, but I kept picking up books I wasn't super into, and finishing them. I'm usually good about DNFing books when I'm not feeling them, but for some reason, this year, I've been reverting to old habits and making myself finish books I'm only lukewarm...

The Mountain by Paul Yoon

I'm starting to think audio is just not the format for me for short stories, because this is the third story collection I've read on audio and been thoroughly underwhelmed by. I loved Paul Yoon's first story collection, Once the Shore, but I found this one hard to access. The stories in this collection range... Continue Reading →

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

I am so baffled by this book! I picked it up knowing absolutely nothing about it, because I'm on a short audiobooks kick, and have been listening to lots of books under 6 hours. I stumbled across this one while browsing around Hoopla and figured, why not? Then I discovered that it is apparently super... Continue Reading →

Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys

It's hard for me to figure out where to start with this one. I've been putting off writing this review for weeks, because I really disliked this novel. I was expecting to love it. I finally read Jane Eyre last winter, and it completely blew me away. I was hoping Wide Sargasso Sea would enter... Continue Reading →

The Ruin of a Rake by Cat Sebastian

The Ruin of A Rake is the third installment in Cat Sebastian’s Turner Series, a trilogy of queer Regency romances. This one is about Julian Medlock, a man who has spent years cultivating his reputation as a Very Proper Gentleman and Lord Courtenay, who has spent years cavorting around the Continent without a care for...
