Review: An Enchantment of Ra..

First, a note: if you know me at all, you know that putting the word “Ravens” on anything is going to get my attention. Ravens are beautiful, intelligent, and they remind me of Edgar Allan Poe. I’m going to the Pickerington Public Library Young Adult Book Festival in October, and I realized that I hadn’t […]

Review: The Outcast by Taran Matharu

I got this book from none other than Erin this spring, back when we went to RocTBF, and once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I knew I would like the series as son as I attended Matharu’s panel, because all the influences listed were things I love— things like the battle […]

Laura’s Summer TBR

I know that right now the world is muddy and gross and it is always either too hot or too cold for comfort. Everyone’s allergies are acting up and all I want to do is curl up with a book and read. Ah, spring. Soon, though, it will warm up. The sun will come out […]

Review: The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman

I like to break up my reading list with a graphic novel here and there. I love looking at the art while I read, and I feel that it is an underappreciated category of books. This one was amazing. I love Neil Gaiman’s work, so I knew that I would probably enjoy it, but I […]

Review: Counteract by Tracy Lawson

Hey, all! Last weekend, Erin and I went to the Ohioana Book Festival in Columbus, which was incredible. While there, we got to meet many fantastic Ohio authors, one of whom was Tracy Lawson. I missed her table at first, but then I caught sight of it and was drawn in. The books she had […]

Review: The Girl With All the Gifts

SPOILERS If you are into sci-fi, or adventures, or horror, or multiple POV… read this book. I originally started the audiobook without reading a long description. I thought I was in for some light magical realism, but wow. I was not. I listened to this book in my car back when I had a longer […]

Book Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

I have now read through this series twice, and I adore it. All my favorite books are the ones where I discover more and more each time I read them, and this series definitely falls into that category. CHARACTERS  The characters keep evolving and building through this series, which I appreciate. Many of the things […]

Ohioana at Last!

Ohioana at Last!

Hey, all! Erin and I have been trying to go to the Ohioana Book Festival for the last few years, and this year we finally made it! We drove through rain on our way to Columbus, but luckily it was clear skies for the start of the festival. We arrived a little late due to […]

Midnight At the Electric by Jodi Lynn Anderson

This book threw me off of a bridge in the dark, and I let it happen. The three timelines complement each other perfectly, and I love that it follows three young women in times of upheaval. It is not uncommon to find books with multiple povs, but this still came across as fresh and lovely. […]
