The Nameless Book Tag

The Nameless Book Tag

I snagged this tag from Catherine at The Rebelling Muse. Thanks for turning a blind eye while I stole it. ;)

This tag doesn’t actually appear to have any rules, so let’s get into it!

1. What book has been on your shelf the longest?

In total? Of my unread books? Of books I have read but not since I acquired them? Continue reading “The Nameless Book Tag”

Book Review: Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve

Book Review: Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve

I finished Mortal Engines three weeks ago, but between procrastination and sleep deprivation and more procrastination I didn’t get past the basic outline of this review. So. Today I’m gonna fix that. But, fair warning, this review might not be as orderly as most because I don’t remember details well and I forget books annoyingly fast.

Overall rating: 3 stars

So first off, I’d just like to ask WHY Continue reading “Book Review: Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve”

Cover Reveal: Healer’s Bane by Hope Ann

Cover Reveal: Healer’s Bane by Hope Ann

Hope Ann is preparing for another release, and I get to help show off the gorgeous cover for it!

First off, have a blurb:

Kynet hadn’t planned to be in the forefront of the rebellion. That was her brother’s hobby—rallying the people. Plotting against the leaders. Running into dangers she’d have to negotiate him out of.

That was before the Poisoner tried to kill her with many profuse apologies.

That was before she survived, her hands glowing with a strange power she didn’t understand.

With her new ability to heal, Kynet is convinced the rebellion will only doom them all. Taking the people’s pain on herself is a better and all-around safer way. After all, what is the comfort of one worth, compared to the others who can be saved?

Or will it matter at all as her brother lays plans to end the decades of fighting once and for all?

I’m already super excited to read about Kynet! And if the sibling dynamics are as good as they were in Shadowkeeper… I’m definitely sold on this one.

Book Review: Shadowkeeper by Hope Ann

Book Review: Shadowkeeper by Hope Ann

Rating: 4 stars

Hope Ann’s latest novella is arriving today, and I was privileged to get to read it ahead of time. Shadowkeeper is inspired by the myth of Castor and Pollux and the story of Hades and Persephone, which is awesome in and of itself, but then you add in snarky, stubborn characters whose family means more to them than anything and it becomes even better.

The worldbuilding in this book is wonderful. It’s been good in the other two Hope Ann books I’ve read, too, but I think it most comes through and Continue reading “Book Review: Shadowkeeper by Hope Ann”
