A Case for New Adult

A children’s book is generally marketed for readers around the age of 5-8, though it depends on when the child starts reading. Around 8, they’re probably ready for some light chapter books, which start to teeter toward the middle grade age range of 8-12. Eventually, and this is where it gets sticky, young adult comes […]

Tag: Dark Academia

I saw this tag over on Kim @ Traveling Books, and I was hooked right from the idea of a whole tag about dark academia, but then the questions were fantastic and got me gushing, so here we are.

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’m a huge fan of rereading. I don’t do it nearly as often as I’d like to because there are so many other new to me books to read that I get wrapped up in, but if someone told me that I could only reread books for the rest of the year, these would be […]

TTT: Books Featuring Disabled Narrators

Happy Tuesday! I’ve always liked Tuesdays because it’s my yoga teaching day, but this one is even more fun because we’re talking about some of my favorite books in the world–those featuring disabled narrators.

TTT: Purple Prose

Ah, yes, purple prose, the thing everyone loves to hate and ya girl over here is always down for. I don’t know what it is, I just love language that’s stupidly superfluous and totally over the top. I feel like I don’t shout about the books on this list a whole lot, so why not […]
