The Ava Lavender Denouement

Have you ever read a book that just completely ruins you for all other books? Like, how do you go on after that book?  Will anything ever be as good?  Probably not. Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt personally attacked by Kaz Brekker.  Cos ya’ll, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo was that book for me. …

November Reads

It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die. Someday, I’m getting this tattooed on me–the sky, the sand, the sea, and Corr.  This is one of my favorite books by Maggie Stiefvater, and one of my favorite lines, and it’s definitely happening someday.  I already have a Wolves of Mercy Falls and The Raven…

Penguin Teen’s #fallintofantasy 4 books in 8 days readathon!

A few weeks ago, Penguin Teen announced their readathon for the Thanksgiving break: 4 books in 8 days, and all of them high fantasy.  All of those things are up my alley, so I’m definitely participating.  Like my last readathon, I will be live-blogging while I read.  And this is my TBR for this week:…

October Reads

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Is today not the best day ever or what?  I’ve been fortunate enough to read a lot of amazing books this month, many of them spooky, and thus, I decided to add a little fun thing to this month’s spooktacular reads.  (I’m never going to stop, BYE.)  For all Halloween-appropriate books, there will be…

I Met VE Schwab!

Last night, I went to an event at Brookline Booksmith for a talk & signing with the one and only Victoria Schwab.  I’m still covered in glitter, so I thought it’d be fun to talk about my experience! But the beginning!  Because what is a story about meeting an author without the story of discovering that…

September Reads

I don’t know how I forgot to mention this last month, but it’s been over a year since I started doing wrap-up review posts for the blog.  It’s been a really fun year of reading since then, and I’ve actually noticed that my books read per month has gone up a little since I started…

The Space Blog

I am currently sitting in bed, tucked comfortably beneath my dark teal linen duvet, a cat crunching on dinner and another one watching the rain.  The moon is hidden behind clouds, though I listened to a song tonight that reminded me of her.  I’m wearing a shirt with all nine planets that includes scientific facts…

August Reads

This has been a crazy month.  I was published!  My short story, A Boy and the Ocean, is now available on Amazon and Z Publishing House’s website.  It’s part of their Massachusetts’s Emerging Authors: An Anthology of Fiction, and I’m so immensely grateful to be part of it.  For the story on how everything happened, check…

Reading Challenge (kind of) CRUSHED

Alright, it’s Wednesday. Yesterday, I kicked off my reading challenge (5 books in 7 days) with The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner, and for the last 200 pages, I’ve basically just been going UGH EUGENIDES.  My friend, Alex, was the one to turn me onto these books after I kept picking up The Thief over and…

5 Books in 7 Days!

I’m going on vacation this weekend, and I’ve decided to set myself a little challenge.  I have Friday off with only one thing to do, and then it’s up to Vermont Saturday afternoon until Tuesday morning.  I have so many books that I keep almost picking up, and I keep getting FOMO—-fear of missing out. …
