The blog is on the move!
Hi everyone, and in particular if you've been following my blog for a while, thankyou thankyou! I have recently posted my 100th blog post, and I've been thinking of where I want to take this blog next. I want to have a bit more flexibility than what I'm getting with wordpress.com, and I wanted my … Continue reading The blog is on the move!
ARC Review: Love, Activism, and the Respectable Life of Alice Dunbar Nelson, by Tara T. Green
I'm still hoping to read more nonfiction books in 2022, so I jumped on the chance to get this one through NetGalley - the biography of a queer, Black woman who was a writer and activist from the late 1800s to the 1930s. The Book Love, Activism, and the Respectable Life of Alice Dunbar-Nelson is … Continue reading ARC Review: Love, Activism, and the Respectable Life of Alice Dunbar Nelson, by Tara T. Green
Shakespeare book adaptions: The good, the bad, the ugly
If you don't know it already, I'm a Shakespeare Nerd. I wrote my master's dissertation on queer productions of Shakespeare. One of my hobbies is to read adaptations of the plays, because I love a good modernization or reworking, and there's so much interesting stuff that can be done with this dude's work. He's not … Continue reading Shakespeare book adaptions: The good, the bad, the ugly
Book Review: Soulstar, by C. L. Polk
This is the last novel in the Kingston Cycle, and I had to wait a little bit for the audiobook to become available, but it was worth the wait. You can see my reviews of Witchmark and Stormsong as well. There will be possible spoilers for the first two books at least, in the review … Continue reading Book Review: Soulstar, by C. L. Polk
Book review: Six Crimson Cranes, by Elizabeth Lim
Tessa gifted me the hardback for this for my birthday (yes, yes, that was a few months back) and I finally got my sh#t together to read it, by buddy-reading it with Nikki. It was fun to be able to discuss it together and made the experience all the more enjoyable. This picture just does … Continue reading Book review: Six Crimson Cranes, by Elizabeth Lim
January Recap and February TBR
As I try to recover from burnout, I've actually had quite a lot of time in January to read! I'm currently at 16 books as of writing this, and I might finish another before the day is out. I do still want to read more ebooks (I've only finished 1 this month!) but I find … Continue reading January Recap and February TBR
Review: A Master of Djinn, by P. Djèlí Clark
On this blog, we stan P. Djèlí Clark. I've yet to be disappointed by anything he's written, and his books are generally kickass, magic-filled, queer, feminist books. I had been looking forward to this for ages, and was just waiting for the audiobook (as I've read both other novellas in this universe in audio and … Continue reading Review: A Master of Djinn, by P. Djèlí Clark
Book Review: Cemetery Boys, by Aiden Thomas
I promised a full review of this book... a few months ago when I read it with all the other Lodestar YA novels. I've been procrastinating on the delivery, but I still love the book just as much as when I first read it! The Synopsis Yadriel has summoned a ghost, and now he can’t … Continue reading Book Review: Cemetery Boys, by Aiden Thomas
Book Review: The Galaxy and the Ground Within, by Becky Chambers
I've owned this book for a while but despite absolutely loving Becky Chambers' every book I've read so far, I was not starting it. I think because it's the last in the Wayfarers series, which made me really sad. I could honestly read 20 more books in this universe, I dream of a sitcom set … Continue reading Book Review: The Galaxy and the Ground Within, by Becky Chambers
