How to Review Books

Though I have taken a little time off from proper book reviews here, I usually do a lot. I try to review every book I read. There isn’t perse a right or wrong way to review books; everyone finds different formulas that work for them. There are still some things I want to try; I’ve…… Continue reading How to Review Books

Book List: Billionaire Romance

Taking a break from all the magical and fantastical recommendations to give you a list of romances to read this fall. Why not imagine yourself as the protagonist falling in love with a rich person?

Book List: Mermaids

I am on vacation along the Carolina coast and being so close to the ocean reminds me of books with fantastical sea creatures.

Book Lists: Royalty

Princesscore. Royalcore. Secret Heir. Secret Royal. Prince Charming. We’ve grown up with stories of princesses in locked towers and princes on white steeds. We’ve played video games where queens send us on quests or the royal princess is kidnapped by the beast. Naturally, we’d want to read books with these kind of archetypes–especially those that…… Continue reading Book Lists: Royalty

Book List: Dark Academia

Fall is the perfect time to dive into dark academia books. These are books with an emphasis in knowledge, literature, and the arts but with much darker tones and can be somewhat pessimistic towards humanity, though I find them inspiring and cozy.

Book Review: Where the Crawdads Sing (Corsair)

For the past couple of years, it seemed like everyone was raving about this book. Last year, I picked it up because it was on sale and I had heard of it, but not knowing what it was about I put it to the side to collect dust. But now the movie is out and…… Continue reading Book Review: Where the Crawdads Sing (Corsair)

Book Review: Extasia by Claire Legrand (Katherine Tegan Books)

Last month, I ordered a one-time book box from the Unplugged Book Box. They are a book box focused on self-care, and in it I recieved beautiful smelling lotion and perfume as well as a copy of Extasia by Claire Legrand (published by Katherine Tegan Books). Due to the packaging, it made the read even…… Continue reading Book Review: Extasia by Claire Legrand (Katherine Tegan Books)
