My Library Haul

Last weekend I picked up some exciting reads from my local library! These titles are ones that I’ve been anxiously awaiting to start! Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy Back in my college years, I began reading Anna Karenina since I was intrigued by the love story. At the time I only knew that Tolstoy wroteContinue reading “My Library Haul”

My Thoughts on ‘Wish’ by Barbara O’ Connor

I discovered ‘Wish’ while searching for another story at a local department store. When I walk into this location, the first stop I always head to is the large table of books that’s on display. It’s usually a mix of new releases and titles that have been out for a while. I didn’t come acrossContinue reading “My Thoughts on ‘Wish’ by Barbara O’ Connor”

March 3, 2019: Six of Crows Reading Blog #2

I’m about halfway through Leigh Bardugo’s ‘Six of Crows’ (midway through Section 3: Heartbreak).

Way before their notorious reputations were cemented,Continue reading “March 3, 2019: Six of Crows Reading Blog #2”

‘Siege and Storm’ by Leigh Bardugo/A Review

**This review contains spoilers** I appreciated ‘Siege and Storm’ a bit more than ‘Shadow and Bone’. This installment in the Grisha series heavily ventures into military strategy and royal influence as Alina fights to defeat the Darkling and restore peace to Ravka. Alina generates a following among commoners and Grisha alike, as many see herContinue reading “‘Siege and Storm’ by Leigh Bardugo/A Review”

Since it appears that we’re going to be snowedContinue reading “My TBR list for January”
