June 2015: in which I made some blog changes! June was a busy, busy month. I got more comfortable at work, but it’s been pretty time consuming, and all of that together with other pressures on blogging led to me resolving to make some changes to the blog. But, it’s a good thing. I already feel much more relaxed, and I’m having fun making plans for my reduced blogging schedule… Read more »

Book Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Book Review: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

June 24, 2015 Reviews 7 ★★

Ugh. *moan* *sigh* Oh boy. The Kiss of Deception came out last year to a generally positive reception – in fact, plenty of my closest blogging friends clamored about it as being one of the best new YA fantasy series out there. I am baffled, because I do not understand at all. This book was boring as hell. Honestly, I should have paid more attention to what this book was… Read more »

Book Review: The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley

Book Review: The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley

June 22, 2015 Reviews 0 ★★★½

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street came pitched to me as “for fans of Samantha Shannon” and came with a blurb by Shannon herself. That definitely caught my attention, but when I heard about what the rest of the book would contain (clairvoyance, Victorian London, Japan, and a heavy focus on characterization), I knew I had to check this book out for sure. This adult historical fiction is something completely different… Read more »

Book Review: The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

Book Review: The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

June 19, 2015 Reviews 6 ★★★★½

Kasie West is one of my absolute all-time favorite authors, as anyone who has read my blog probably knows. I will pre-order all of her books from now until the end of time, and read them almost as soon as they enter my hands. Such was the case with The Fill-In Boyfriend, which wasn’t only promising me excellent romantic fluff, but also one of my favorite tropes of all time:… Read more »
