TTT: Queer Fantasy MCs

There are a lot of reasons why I’m here with this post, and, honestly, with half of the posts this month. Not only am I posting four short stories, all of which take place in some level of fantasy, but I’ve got an entire discussion on how exhausted I am with homophobia in fantasy. I […]

TTT: Favorite Couples

I had this at a solid ten, and then I was working on another TTT for this month about queer fantasy MCs and had Yadriel on that list and somehow not him & Julian on this one, and I just?? Decided to do a list of 12 instead so the cover aesthetic could stay strong. […]

April Wrap-Up

WELL, I got a lot of reading done, but this month was a rough one for me, and I’ve been leaning heavily on words to survive it, so while I read a lot of amazing books, I’m exhausted, and, you know– In trying to continue to read diversely, I’m going to be adding a few […]

TTT: Bookish Witches

If you don’t think I have an entire shelf dedicated to books with witchy MCs, think again. Witches are my favorite characters to read about, which is probably just because I want to see myself reflected in books, and they’re also, unsurprisingly, my favorite characters to write about. It’s going to be a while since […]

TTT: Favorite Romance Books

I can think of every single one of these books without even trying, and they’re all going to be stupidly predictable.

Favorite Romance Tropes

I’m going to try to limit it to my top five, which, like, don’t quote me on this later saying that these are my top five because there’s always something new that I haven’t realized that I love, or something that I’ve forgotten about. And look, three of these are basically […]

TTT: Top 10 Reads of 2020

I know what you’re thinking–no top 10 fantasy?? Why am I even here?! I know that I’ve done a top five six middle grade, top ten contemporary, and top ten sequels, so while it might seem terrible that I’m not doing a top ten fantasy, well. More than half of these are fantasies, and while […]

TTT: Top 20 Favorite Covers of 2020

I know this is hella unorthodox, a top twenty, and I could have easily solved this problem by just dropping all the non-2020 releases, but the way we roll is by doing whatever the hell I want, and I picked twenty covers right off the bat that I absolutely adored out of the books I […]

Urban Fantasy VS High Fantasy

This is not going to be a divisive post. Wow, I just had the hardest time spelling the word divisive. I hate the versus here because it sounds like I’m pitting urban fantasy against high fantasy when, really, I’m just talking about what I like about each, and why they’re such different subgenres of fantasy, […]
