An Update

Things haven’t been great the last few weeks, and as I thought things were beginning to look up, I got knocked down once again. This month was supposed to be full of fun Star Wars posts that I had had planned out for months, but – as is usual for me lately – mental health…

Day 3: REVIEW: Last Shot

Last Shot by Daniel José Older is one of the first Star Wars books of the year that I’ve been truly dying for. A pre-trilogy set story based around Han and Lando? Yes please! Older’s novel jumps back and forth through time, covering not only a new heist than Han and Lando are on, but jumped back far…

Day 2: Padmé Amidala

The prequel trilogy gets a lot more flack than it deserves in my opinion. No, they aren’t as clear cut as the original trilogy – aka. there’s a lot more political lingo rather than “those are the bad guys, shoot them” – but that doesn’t make them less enjoyable. Honestly, my favourite part about the…

Day 1: Leia & Amilyn

It’s officially May 1st and that means it’s Star Wars Month! Every day this month I’m going to talk about a different topic in the Star Wars universe and am so excited to geek out about this. To kick things off, it’s only fair the first topic is the galaxy’s favourite princess and general, Leia Organa (and her dear…

KING OF SCARS Cover Reveal

So if you know a single thing about me, you know just how much I adore my sweet sobachka, Nikolaj Lantsov of Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha Trilogy. He is honestly the best part about the series and after finally finishing Ruin & Rising earlier this year, all I could think was “Nikolaj deserved better”. I just about died when Leigh announced…

REVIEW: Chatterbox

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review I going to start off this review like I usually do when it comes to collections like this: I’m honestly the worst person when it comes to analyzing poetry and that’s why I don’t often read it. However, I…

Taking A Break

In case it wasn’t obvious by my last blog post I’m in a bit of a slump at the moment. Both with reading and things in my personal life. It isn’t fun and if anything, churning out reviews for graphic novels and trying to come up with blog posts is only stressing me out more. So…

REVIEW: Bookish Boyfriends

I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I requested this book when I saw it on NetGalley because I thought it sounded like a fluffy piece of mindless reading in which a high school girl dates her way through the boys of classic literature. Instead, what…

Slumps

There are different kinds of slumps we can get into in our lives. Physical slumps, emotional slumps, creative slumps. They all suck and they all can be hard to get out of. What’s important about slumps is not getting stuck despite our tight of a hold they may have on us. The worst thing to…

REVIEW: Ace of Shades

I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Considering the hype that surrounds this upcoming book, I was very excited to be approved for the ARC on NetGalley. Although it lost me here and there, I found it to be a fun story with interesting characters. The…

MARCH WRAP-UP

I don’t have a witty title for this one, but I read a ton of stuff this month from non-fiction to graphic novels. All of these total to 13 books read! I’ve also raised my reading goal from 75 to 100 as I’ve been just devouring books lately and want to see if I can really challenge myself to…

REVIEW: The Wicked + The Divine: Commercial Suicide

This volume was all about backstory for several of the gods, including Tara who up until this volume has been only mentioned by the others. I found this volume to be really sad, to be honest, because the backstory provided for Tara, Sakhmet, and Amaterasu was really sad. Especially when it came to poor Tara,…
