Current Reads

  • Malice by Heather Walker: I’ve finally started this dark fairytale retelling and I’m already invested in what happens to Alyce. This book has a lot going for it! The plot is intriguing, I’m liking the tone, and the writing is fantastic so far. I’m eager to get more into the story.
  • Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko: That’s right! I’m finally reading my most anticipated book of 2021! No pressure, right? It certainly has started off with a bang and it’s great to see all this characters I love so much again. I expect I’ll tear through this one in no time, lol.

  • The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo: Uuuummm, this novella was incredible! And makes me want to read more by Nghi Vo! This was lyrical, mystical, and beautifully sad. I loved the characters. I could read an entire book of Rabbit telling stories, tbh. This was a breath of fresh air and I can’t wait to continue with the series!
  • A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers: Two five star reads pretty much back to back and they’re both novellas! This is a sci-fi novella featuring two of my new favorite characters: a tea monk named Dex and the robot they run into in the wilderness, Mosscap. I would fight for both of them and I’ve only just met them, lol. Thankfully, this is the first book in a new series which means I get more of these amazing characters!

What’s Next

  • The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune: That’s right, I’ll be picking up on of the most hyped books of this year next. I’m really excited to read this one as it features one of my favorite tropes: found family. Which is why I’m using it for that challenge in the Trope-ical Readathon, lol. I’m also eager to get to this because I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about it!
  • Fireborn by Aisling Fowler: I’m reading this one for a The Write Reads blog tour. Much like the previous book, I’ve heard nothing but great things about it! So much so that, even if I wasn’t on the tour, I would want to pick it up soon, lol. It’s a middle grade that is promising a lot of action and some ✨magic✨, so I can’t wait! Also, how beautiful is that cover, right?
