Current Read

The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill

I just picked this up and I’m already captivated by this story! This is the Middle Grade Marvels pick for March. And, yes, I know there are only two days left in March, but I think I’ll fly through this! The writing in this is incredible and I find myself completely pulled into the world the author has created. I’ve honestly not heard a bad thing about this book and I’m starting to see why! I’m excited to read more and (hopefully) finish it soon.

Recently Finished

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
  • One Dark Window by Rachel Gillig: This was so freakin’ good! I read this as my March pick from my 12 friends, 12 recommendations challenge and, I gotta say, my friends just don’t miss. This was right up my alley! I loved the unique magic system, I loved the eerie and oppressive atmosphere, and I especially loved the characters. Elspeth and Rayven are some of the most compelling fantasy characters I’ve read in awhile. And their chemistry? *chef’s kiss* I cannot wait to pick up the next book in the series!
  • The Spite House by Johnny Compton: And then I picked up this short horror book. This is the Literally Dead Book Club choice for March and I honestly had no idea what to expect when I went into this one. I wanted to go into it not knowing much because I always get on with horror books better when I’m not spoiled for anything by the synopsis. The only thing I knew was that it was about a man with a family moving into a supposedly haunted house to try and earn money. This book, of course, is so much more than that. It’s a story about death and grief and generational trauma. It was so unnerving at points that I found myself peeking over my shoulder. This was dark, creepy, emotional, and so damn GOOD!

What’s Next

Song of Silver, Flame Like Night by Amélie Wen Zhao

This is a book that I’m reading for both ARC April and as part of my Orilium Spring Equinox TBR (which is coming soon!). This was an e-ARC I was so excited to get and then forgot about because I kept getting distracted by other things. Then I received a gorgeous copy in an Illumicrate box, so it seemed like a good idea to finally pick it up. It sounds like it’s going to suck me in and I can’t wait.
