Fallon is a half blood fae. Her lineage is unclear, but what she does know, is that she is perfectly below average. She has no powers, she has very little means, and she works at a brothel tavern. She grew up with friends who had money and has had a crush on the Prince of […]
This book has been on my radar since I read the blurb months and months ago. Signa is twenty years old and at this point in her life, just waiting until the day she can claim her inheritance and be done with all the “caretakers” in her life. They use her for her money and […]
After a night of magic turns deadly, Iris Gray vows to never let another person learn she’s a witch. It doesn’t matter that the Witches’ Council found her innocent or that her magic was once viewed as a marvel—that night on the lake changed everything.
Now settled in Washington, Iris hides who she really is and vents her frustrations by writing curses she never intends to cast. And while she loves working at the wildlife refuge she runs with her mother, she loathes Pike Alder, the witch-hating aspiring ornithologist who interns with them.
When Pike makes a particularly hurtful comment, Iris concocts a cruel torment for him. But just as she’s about to dispel it, an owl swoops down and steals the curse before flying far away from the refuge. The owl is a powerful amplifier, and if it dies, Iris’s dark spell will be unleashed not only on Pike, but on everyone in the region.
Forced to work together, Iris and Pike trek through the wilderness in search of the bird that could cost Pike his life. But Pike doesn’t know the truth, and as more dangers arise in the woods, Iris must decide how far she’s willing to go to keep her secrets safe.
One (very real) husband
Nowhere near perfect but desperately trying his best
In BOYFRIEND MATERIAL, Luc and Oliver met, pretended to fall in love, fell in love for real, dealt with heartbreak and disappointment and family and friends…and somehow figured out a way to make it work. Now it seems like everyone around them is getting married, and Luc’s feeling the social pressure to propose. But it’ll take more than four weddings, a funeral, and a bowl full of special curry to get these two from I don’t know what I’m doing to I do.
Good thing Oliver is such perfect HUSBAND MATERIAL.
At several points this year have I pondered a perennial question, which many millennials will likely be familiar with: Am I too old for YA? Here is the thing: I love YA fantasy, but I am seriously beginning to question if I have reached my tolerance for rom-com, thriller-hype, coming-of-age stories. We Made it All […]

Did I immediately pre-order a physical copy of this book once I finished it? Yes, I did. I have reviewed Rachel Lynn Solomon’s YA books, which you can find here too, and my reviews tend to follow the same direction when it comes to her books. Just the synopsis of See You Yesterday alone had me vehemently […]
I DNF’d this book at 69%. That is a lot of book to commit to, to not finish.Yet here we are. This is a book about a pretentious film studies “expert”, written by a pretentious film studies “expert” for other pretentious film studies “experts”. The incessant and unnecessary mention of obscure vintage television shows, actors […]
