August Wrap-Up

What a damn good month! It’s been a hellishly long time since I had this many five and four star reads, and I’m just so stoked. I’m also 0% surprised that nearly all of these were fantasy. I read Fellowship of the Ring this month, and it just made me crave fantasy so much that […]

An Adventure in Tolkien: The Fellowship of the Ring

Previously on An Adventure in Tolkien: Look, I did not ask to fall in love with Beowulf EVEN MORE, but here we are. Wow, it has been a Minute. I reviewed Beowulf back in June, and, before that, both Tolkien’s biography & his letters, but I haven’t read a book in the main legendarium since […]

Taste is Subjective

I mean, it goes without saying, right? Or, it should, at least, go without saying that taste is subjective. I always feel wary of recommending any form of media to people because what I might think is amazing others might think is pretty subpar.

July Wrap-Up

This was a weird month for me, not gonna lie. I’ll talk about it more at the end, but I’m consistently feeling like I did nothing while actually having done a lot, so. I think a lot of that stems from the fact that I feel like I didn’t read a lot, but three of […]

Review: All Souls Trilogy

This review is just going to be straight chaos from start to finish. I’m going to try very hard to stay focused, but I’m going to dissolve pretty quickly into shouting about the misogyny in this trilogy, so you’ve been warned. As always, the tl;dr of this review is I liked this series at the […]
