Why I Like to Reread

Given that I’m fresh on the heels of an entire Grishaverse reread, this seems like the most appropriate time to discuss this! Reread is perhaps one of my favorite things in the world, and though I haven’t done a lot of it over the last few years, I’m really trying to convince myself that it’s […]

Shift from First Person to Third Person

I feel like I may make some people mad with this post, so I’m going to disclaimer it right away: I don’t like first person. I can get past it in contemporary, but it sometimes makes me not read a book when it’s in fantasy. This is purely subjective, and it does not reflect these […]

March Wrap-Up

It’s that time of the year! My birthday is at the end of March, which I’ll talk about at the end of this long wrap-up, but it means a lot of books received, a lot of tea drunk, way more pastries than normal, going completely off the rails with my reading, and just basically celebrating […]

November Wrap-Up

This month just felt like constant chaos. I was tired more than I was not, and I know a lot of that had to do with NaNoWriMo, but I’m so looking forward to Christmas when I can just take a week off and not do anything. I didn’t get to read as much as I’d […]

#marywrites: Foreshadowing

I am never, ever going to get over Noah Czerny introducing himself by way of I’ve been dead for seven years AND NO ONE BELIEVING HIM. Maggie Stiefvater often has some of my favorite foreshadowing because, much like Noah, she’ll be frank with us. I mean, the opening chapter of The Raven Boys literally shows […]
