OKAY. It’s finally done. I read it, digested it, and have produced some thoughts about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (AKA the “8th Story, Nineteen Years Later”). There have been so many mixed reviews about this book, I wasn’t exactly sure exactly where I’d fall. I’d say I ended up somewhere in the middle. I’ve divided this post into Spoiler-free and Spoiler-full, so read on for my spoiler-free thoughts on the story!
I am so incredibly thrilled to be sharing this juicy sneak peek of Samantha Shannon’s The Song Rising (the third novel in The Bone Season series) with you all! This is the prologue to the book and takes place right where The Mime Order left off. So read on for an OMG-worthy plot reveal.

I have finished a monstrous audiobook. Twenty-two hours of Joe Hill’s The Fireman was a serious undertaking, but I knew I had to tackle it, because the synopsis just sounded too good for me to miss: “A chilling novel about a worldwide pandemic of spontaneous combustion that threatens to reduce civilization to ashes and a band of improbable heroes who battle to save it, led by one powerful and enigmatic man known as the Fireman.”
My second ever OwlCrate came a couple of weeks ago, and once again, I was thrilled with the contents (and especially the book!). This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab had been getting so much dang hype since being released in early July that I could not contain my excitement when it showed up in my box.
