Aristotle and Dante Discover all of the ARCs Lellie read in June

Hello friends! I mentioned in an earlier post that I wasn’t able to read very many phyiscal books this month because I requested way too many ARCs this month and was surprised when I got almost all of them and all at once. But it’s fine because I got to see Aristotle and Dante DiveContinue reading “Aristotle and Dante Discover all of the ARCs Lellie read in June”

A Complicated Love Story Set in Space: A Review

I did that thing where you know you aren’t supposed to request too many ARCs at one time so that you have time to read and review them all in a timely fashion but you do it anyway and suddenly have 15 books to read in 50 days. Because of that, my reading of theContinue reading “A Complicated Love Story Set in Space: A Review”

April Showers Bring May Flowers: May 2021 ARC reviews

I had a lot of reading steam going into May, but I felt myself slip into a bit of a slump after reading the Six of Crows duology and watching the Shadow and Bone TV series on Netflix (review on that comin soon). That being said, I started requesting ARCs on netgalley again this monthContinue reading “April Showers Bring May Flowers: May 2021 ARC reviews”

Love in a Time of Hunger: A Review of Your Heart, My Sky by Margarita Engle

First of all, I’d like to thank the little Indie bookstore in my town (Novel Memphis) for having a kiosk of verse novels with this one on it. Indie bookstores are such a great way to be introduced to lesser-known books and I’m so glad to have found this one! Your Heart, My Sky isContinue reading “Love in a Time of Hunger: A Review of Your Heart, My Sky by Margarita Engle”

Review: Every Body Looking by Candice Iloh

Happy Friday book lovers! This month has been off to a good start for me! I’ve already read 3 and hoping to finish my fourth this weekend.

Review: Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi

What would you do if you could go back in time? My first book of May 2021 was the Japanese novel Before the Coffee gets Cold. This little book made me so sad! It was such a poignant look at what you’d say to your loved one if you only had a few minutes toContinue reading “Review: Before the Coffee Gets Cold by Toshikazu Kawaguchi”

Review: In Deeper Waters by F T LUKENS

I am a big fan of the Rainbow Crate book box, a monthly subscription box bringing queer books and fandom merch to the masses. I have been a subscriber to them for about a year now– almost since inception. I have liked every single book I’ve received in the boxes, and April’s pick, In DeeperContinue reading “Review: In Deeper Waters by F T LUKENS”

Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events (Part 2)

My own unfortunate event arose after I moved at the end of March. I packed away my TBR cart in a special box so that I would know exactly where my current reads were and so that I’d have easy access to them (including books 9-11 of A Series of Unfortunate Events). Well, I haveContinue reading “Review: A Series of Unfortunate Events (Part 2)”
