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”

The Fixer Upper – Lauren Forsythe

The Fixer Upper drops tomorrow, a cute romance set in London that features best friends, second chances, and some great moments interspersed with some truly weird #secondwavefeminist moments that I could have done without. “Maybe you’re wondering where you’d be if you’d spent all that time and energy on yourself instead.” Maybe I’m wondering whyContinue reading “The Fixer Upper – Lauren Forsythe”

Our Wives Under the Sea – Julia Armfield

“Ghosts don’t speak,” she said . . . “but something is speaking to me.” I, Hannah, read Julia Armfield’s Our Wives Under the Sea. I honestly can’t remember why I picked it on Netgalley. I am sure a part of it had to do with the cover, but another part was it sounded just weirdContinue reading “Our Wives Under the Sea – Julia Armfield”

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”

OWWR Pod February She Wrote Recommendations

Ben from Literature and Lofi is doing a month of reading books with people who use she/her pronouns! In honor of that, Laura and Hannah prepared a few authors that are worth reading! Ryka Aoki: Why not start the month off right and kill two birds with one stone. Read Ryka Aoki’s works. Hannah andContinue reading “OWWR Pod February She Wrote Recommendations”

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”
