Night Pleasures by Sherrilyn Kenyon

So, yes, I’m gonna admit it: this was a guilty-pleasure read. Night Pleasures was the Twilight version of my high school days. I wanted to read something light and fun to get out of my seemingly constant book slump and so here I am. The story follows Amanda, who’s some sort of psychic with supernatural…

Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Children of Blood and Bone is a new YA fantasy series (Legacy of Orïsha) by Tomi Adeyemi. I haven’t read a lot of YA series in a while, nor like it actually. But I picked up this book, mainly because of the hype, but also because of what it represents: black culture. I haven’t read…

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

It’s been a a few weeks since I’ve finished an actual novel and The Road seems like a nice go-to to get me back on track. I picked it up because it seems easy to get into, and a pretty fast read (but I did finish it in over a week because, well, work). I…

Jade City

Politics moved slowly and blades moved fast. Jade City by Fonda Lee   For r/fantasy‘s book of the month for March, we present Jade City! It came out last November 2017 from Orbit. I think the book picks this year are actually all from Orbit so far, which is good! Although I’ve been meaning to…

Soldiers do not believe in gods until they do something to offend them. The Court of Broken Knives by Anna Smith Spark   This novel is the first of the trilogy, Empire of Dust Series. It came out around June 2017 and the next book (which I’m very excited for and will probably pre-order as…

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling   I’ve been reading books lately together with its audio book edition. It’s either go through it till the end or not go…

Yes, Please

Saying “yes” doesn’t mean I don’t know how to say no, and saying “please” doesn’t mean I am waiting for permission. Yes, Please by Amy Poehler   I know Amy Poehler through watching Parks and Recreation and has been my idol ever since. She is a very independent, smart, funny and capable woman. When I…

Blackwing

The treacherous bastards were about to understand why you do not, not with the backing of princes, not with the backing of Darlings or Kings or the spirits of hatred themselves, fuck with Ryhalt Galharrow. Blackwing by Ed McDonald   Blackwing is the first book of the Ravens’ Mark series by Ed McDonald. As far…
