Weekly Wrap-Up: 12 April 2019

Happy Friday, all!  This week has been pretty great for me. I finished up my last day at my old job on Monday and have been having a very relaxing week of funemployment until I begin my new role next week. This means that I've been doing a ton of reading -- check it out!

Reading Wrap-Up: March 2019

March was such a busy month -- I feel like it completely flew by! I had so many life changes in March, including preparation for moving to a new job and studying (and passing!) by driving theory test. I did, however, still manage to get some reading done, although I didn’t read as many books as I had wanted.

Blog Tour: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Welcome to my stop on the Muse of Nightmares blog tour! To celebrate the paperback release, I’m bringing you a review of this gorgeous fantasy novel. Judging by my overwhelming love of Strange the Dreamer, it’s no surprise that I absolutely adored the concluding book in Laini Taylor’s latest duology. Take a look at my thoughts below, and don’t forget to check out the other stops on the tour!

Book Review: The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

I had been desperately waiting to get hold of a copy of The Priory of the Orange Tree, and it finally landed in my hands in February. It’s a chunky 800-page fantasy tome that is packed with cool dragons, mighty queens, fierce warriors, and enough court intrigue and conspiracy to warm my heart. I was fully expecting this to be my favourite book of the year, so what did I think of it?

Book Review: Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glenn Marsh

I didn’t know much about Reign of the Fallen,  but I absolutely loved its gorgeous cover and had heard good things about it from my friend Judith.  In fact, her review is the only one I have seen. I chose to listen to the audiobook, but for the first time on this blog I don’t think I would recommend that. The narrator was just okay and made some strange choices with voices and accents that I found a bit distracting.

Weekly Wrap-Up: 15 March 2019

Happy Friday! This month has been a bit wild so far, but at least I've had plenty of time for reading! I've been so busy these days. I'm ramping up my Bookstagram activity, filming videos like crazy, watching ungodly amounts of RuPaul's Drag Race, and have been making progress on my most anticipated book of the year. Basically, I'm ready for a nap.

Book Review: Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I’ve been hearing amazing things about the Witchlands books for ages, but had never picked them up. With the release of Bloodwitch, the third book in the series, in February, I decided to finally pick up Truthwitch. I’m kicking myself for not reading this sooner -- Truthwitch was an absolute delight and one of my favourite YA fantasies this year.
