Seven Devils was one of my favourite books of 2021, and I Could Not Wait for the follow up, so I jumped at the chance to review the ARC from Netgalley! I also buddy-read it with Tessa, mostly for support and general yelling "wtf" at each other. (spoilers for Seven Devils in the following review, … Continue reading ARC Review: Seven Mercies, by Laura Lam & Elizabeth May
A little last minute readathon: Pondathon II signup
Yeah so I'm not always Au Fait of what's going on in the bookblogging world, as I'm mostly doing my own thing.

Pondathon … Continue reading A little last minute readathon: Pondathon II signup
Book review: The Wife in the Attic, by Rose Lerner
I'd had this book recommended to me a few times as a great historical sapphic romance. I had been keeping an eye on it, and by total chance I won the author's Halloween giveaway. Given a choice of ebook or audio, I of course took the audiobook - and binged it over one weekend! So … Continue reading Book review: The Wife in the Attic, by Rose Lerner
A little chat: 2021 achievements / Goals for 2022
I have been thinking over the last couple weeks on how to set up my "bullet" journal (it's lined so it's not really a bujo but I use it similarly) and so it has allowed me to reflect on what I achieved and what I want to do next year in a lot more detail, … Continue reading A little chat: 2021 achievements / Goals for 2022
Introducing: the 2022 nonfiction bingo!
One of my goals for next year is to read more nonfiction. I enjoy it when I do, but I don't normally go toward it. I looked into a few existing bingos and challenges, and I wasn't super happy with the prompts, which covered too many topics I am in fact not interested to read. … Continue reading Introducing: the 2022 nonfiction bingo!
Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid
I've been intrigued by this book for a while without actually knowing what it was really about, except that it had queer themes (and 7 husbands). It went off Scribd before I could get to it, but it's back now so I jumped right on it the moment I noticed it. The Story Aging and … Continue reading Review: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid
A little life update (or, why the blog has been so quiet)
Hi everyone! I just wanted to say a few words about why the blog's been so quiet lately.

November Recap and December TBR
November has been a very weird month for me. I had to take time off sick due to complete exhaustion at the beginning of the month, which paradoxically means I had time to be bored and read more stuff, especially audiobooks. I did find it hard to stick with my challenge of reading all/most of … Continue reading November Recap and December TBR
Review: Armed in her Fashion, by Kate Heartfield
I've enjoyed reading Heartfield's short story in Monstrous Little Voices a few years ago. It was the highlight of that anthology (it was a bit of a letdown, as a whole, but it looks like the authors weren't aware of the others' work although it was all linked together somehow... which led to some unfortunate … Continue reading Review: Armed in her Fashion, by Kate Heartfield
