This month’s OwlCrate theme was “wonderland”, and it will filled to the brim with all things Alice in Wonderland. It may have been my favorite month so far! As a reminder to those of you who don’t know what OwlCrate is: it is a monthly bookish box subscription that always […]
The Mime Order is the second novel in the 7-book Bone Season series, and my goodness it’s even better than The Bone Season (and I loved that one – click here to see why).
It’s the gift-giving time of year, and I love nothing more than giving books as gifts. As such, I’ve decided that I should take advantage of the season and give some recommendations of excellent books that you can share with your friends and families. To start the season off, I’m recommending […]

Do you know what’s fun? Coming up with puns that involve the book title and using them as titles to your blog post. I bet you didn’t roll your eyes at all at this title, right? Anyway, choosing to listen to the The Hike by Drew Magary was decided 50% by […]
Typically when I review a book, I don’t explicitly mention if it was an audiobook or a physical copy of a book that I read. Normally, I don’t think it makes much of a difference. Today I’m reviewing The Girl from Everywhere and making it clear that this was an audiobook I listened […]
