🌊 Vacation Review: Malibu Rising 🌊

Ok, I’ll admit I got this one because I wanted to be on the bandwagon from the start. I loved Evelyn Hugo and Daisy Jones so I thought Malibu Rising would be the perfect vacation read to sink my teeth into. It was atmospheric and certainly fit with my vacation vibe but it was justContinue reading “🌊 Vacation Review: Malibu Rising 🌊”

REVIEW: Witches Steeped in Gold

“Bare your teeth like a predator even if at times you feel more like prey.” ————————- Cha, did this one take me longer to read than I anticipated. It had all the fantasy elements I usually love: witches, pirates, blood magic, long fraught rivalries, bitter betrayals and lots of secrets. But sadly, I just struggledContinue reading “REVIEW: Witches Steeped in Gold”

REVIEW: Yellow Wife

“Mama often said, no kind deed from a white person went without a return.” —————————— Indignity.  That’s the word that kept running through my mind while reading this book. I’ve read plenty of books on the time of slavery, but Yellow Wife was different. There were the unfathomable brutalities and inhumane treatment which make everyContinue reading “REVIEW: Yellow Wife”

REVIEW: The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot

“We can’t know why you are dying in the same way that we can’t know why you’re living. Living and dying are both complete mysteries, and you can’t know either until you’ve done both.” ———————————– What a lovely story. In the vein of The Fault in Our Stars, we know right away that our twoContinue reading “REVIEW: The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot”

REVIEW: Magic City

“There’s misunderstandings at times. A woman might say no when she means yes. Now isn’t that right? You might encourage a man without realizing it.” ———————— Do you want to know more about the Tulsa massacre but have a hard time reading history or heavy historical fiction? Well, then I would suggest Magic City to you.Continue reading “REVIEW: Magic City”

REVIEW: The Falling Woman

“He’s trying to explain why the sky is inside him. If they mined down into his soul, they would find wings.  The sky runs through him, into places of himself he still hasn’t mapped. A calling, perhaps, the way a priest is called, or like the great passion of lovers …  The airplane expanded theContinue reading “REVIEW: The Falling Woman”

REVIEW: The Dark Tide

“Eva had reached her limit for human interaction.  She could feel the climbing tension in her muscles, the sharp stab of irritation every time another person spoke, the rising desire to pluck one of her hairpins out of her braids and shove it through someone’s throat.” ——————— Ok, I think Jasinska captured my personality inContinue reading “REVIEW: The Dark Tide”

🚀 REVIEW: How to Mars 🚀

“… but it turns out that after a while even scientists can get bored of science.” ———————– No, we can’t, right? I mean nerdy space stuff is my jam. I even applied for the Mars One program, but after reading this book, I realize I did not prepare myself adequately for what being a pioneerContinue reading “🚀 REVIEW: How to Mars 🚀”

💄 REVIEW: The Hunting Wives 💄

Whooo boy, these ladies are scandalous! When Sophie moves from the city to a rural Texas town, she finds herself enthralled with a group of glamorous, MILF-y residents… one in particular. She finds herself drawn (ok, obsessed) with getting the approval, acceptance and adoration of Margot and her friends. These women are rich and bored withContinue reading “💄 REVIEW: The Hunting Wives 💄”
