IndieMission Pt. 2

Y’all, we are so excited to start our next round for IndieMission, coined by Hannah last time! We want to take this time to highlight an Indie author, and we will read someone from this lineup voted on by all of you! We changed up the lineup this time, added a few, and did AContinue reading “IndieMission Pt. 2”

The Final Strife – Saara El-Arifi

I, Hannah, read The Final Strife by Saara El-Arifi, a high fantasy book that has amazing world building and characters. This is the first book in an upcoming trilogy, and I can’t wait to continue with El-Arifi when she comes out with the next two books. If you want to hear more about the author,Continue reading “The Final Strife – Saara El-Arifi”

Ordinary Monsters – J.M. Miro

I, Hannah read Ordinary Monsters. I got the book from Netgalley, and want to thank them for giving me the advanced copy that I intended to read before it came out on June 7, but failed. Honestly, I think the length intimidated me after the #MegaMay I hosted on my Instagram account. But I poweredContinue reading “Ordinary Monsters – J.M. Miro”

Hannah’s January Reads

Hannah read nine books this January. She really enjoyed all of them. She read a few fantasy novels, a few general fiction, and even was able to get to one nonfiction novel (never her strong suit). So without further ado, here are the books Hannah read. Follow her on Instagram at brews.and.books for her overallContinue reading “Hannah’s January Reads”

Laura’s January Reads

Pony by R.J. Palacio ★★★★☆ A sweet (and surprisingly deep), middle-grade book about a boy and his companion, a ghost named Mittenwool, who set out to rescue the boy’s father with help from a pale-faced pony that seems to have some “mystic qualities” of its own. I really enjoyed this one. I picked it upContinue reading “Laura’s January Reads”

Before They Are Hanged – Joe Abercrombie

Hannah read the second novel in the Third Law Trilogy. This book took each of the main people of the novel to the north, south, and edge of the world. Abercrombie still moves forward with his great ability to take a character’s trope and reinforce certain aspects while inverting all expectations in ways you wouldContinue reading “Before They Are Hanged – Joe Abercrombie”

Hannah’s October Reads

It should be known that I am terrible at reading on brand. If it is a “spooky season” I forget because I am under a mass amount of books that fall in my to be read pile. I am more of a “let’s see what we have this year.” I feel like when I tryContinue reading “Hannah’s October Reads”

Gideon the Ninth – Tamsyn Muir

Hannah recently finished Gideon the Ninth and it was a romp. What a fantastic book to add to any TBR. The book follows Gideon, an indentured servant on the Ninth Planet. She has been raised on this harsh planet with one other person her age, the Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House, Harrowhawk, a necromancerContinue reading “Gideon the Ninth – Tamsyn Muir”

Flowers for the Sea – Zin E. Rocklyn

Flowers for the Sea will be out this Tuesday on October 19, and I highly recommend you read it. This is a short novella, but it packs a spooky and unsettling punch. We enter into Iraxi’s perspective as she is on a boat after the people’s land has been decimated. There is very little foodContinue reading “Flowers for the Sea – Zin E. Rocklyn”

The Blade Itself – Joe Abercrombie

Hannah read The Blade Itself last month, and has not gotten around to writing a review until now. But the Blade Itself sets up the First Law Trilogy within Abercrombie’s universe of books. It is a grimdark novel that is incredibly witty and a great setup for a series that should be interesting to diveContinue reading “The Blade Itself – Joe Abercrombie”
