The Woman in the Library

The Woman in the Library offers two of my favorite things to read about- a book about books and the writing process. It's an interesting read with a good idea but it just didn't work for me in the end. But if you are interested in books about books or meta mystery writing well I'd... Continue Reading →

The Other Black Girl

I really, really enjoyed The Other Black Girl but I went into it without knowing really anything about it and was a little surprised by one big element. I'd definitely be interested in others opinions as they read the book. And I don't really want to say why I was surprised there was just a... Continue Reading →

It’s the Magic Mystery Silly

I may only just beginning my Sanderson deep dive but even I know talking about how great he is at the magic is not exactly a hot take. But despite some trepidation about this book I was intrigued by the magic mystery more than enough to forgive its flaws. Elantris was a beautiful city filled... Continue Reading →

The Devil and the Dark Water

The Devil and the Dark Water By: Stuart Turton When Old Tom is summoned he whispers to you in the night offers your hearts desire for a bargain. And if you don't bargain? You die. Which seems wildly unfair to me but that's the situation the passengers of our ship find themselves in on their... Continue Reading →

The Silence of Bones

The Silence of Bones By: June Hur So for some reason I had it in my head the MC could talk to dead people or read there bones. Yeah don't know where that came from. It's not the case but it's still a first rate mystery and great overall read. Even without the talking to... Continue Reading →

Everyone: She's the queen of mystery Gemma it says it on the book! Gemma: Yeah but still that was like decades ago... I mean one thing about modern... Continue Reading →

burn our bodies down

burn our bodies down By: Rory Power Ever read a book (or watched a film) and thought okay their trying to say something deeper here and I... almost get it... but no, not really... and then wonder am I falling short? Or is the book? After years of dealing with her troubled and secretive mother... Continue Reading →

Ninth House is Worth a Pledge

Ninth House By: Leigh Bardugo Ninth House was probably my most anticipated book of the year. It's one of my favorite authors making the jump from YA to Adult. Although I admit I find that line really blurred already especially in Bardugo's case. Strong but flawed heroine, ghosts, magic, creepy towns and an ages old... Continue Reading →

The Cutest Little Detective Ever

Detective Pikachu Directed By: I must preface this by saying I've never played Pok√©man. I considered playing it once but was generally to lazy to download it and didn't want it taking up so much space on my phone. But Pikachu is the cutest little thing ever and I will likely soon have a stuffed... Continue Reading →
