My Thoughts First, I have a confession. When I read the description, Fawkes just sounded like a fun historical fantasy about plagues, magic and assassination plots. I must have missed the day in history class that we discussed the infamous Gunpowder Plot of 1605 because I had NO CLUE this was a retelling of that […]

My Thoughts I absolutely loved Beyond a Darkened Shore and am kicking myself for not reading it sooner. Jessica Leake’s writing is mesmerizing as she drops you into the beautifully brutal world of 11th century Ireland. Perfect Blend of History, Mythology and Magic Jessica Leake wove an exquisite story that blended Norse and Celtic mythology […]

My Thoughts Holy $%&*$. Why Sabaa? Why? I am not okay. Will not be okay until I have book four in my desperate, shaking hands… and friends… it is still in the brainstorming stages. Sigh. While I am going to do my best to keep this review spoiler free for Reaper, this may not be […]

Hi Wanderers! Have you ever looked around and wondered ‘how is this even my life?‘ And not in the ‘everything is falling apart, Murphy go away‘ kinda way (been there too) but in real awe that you have the privilege of being in that very moment. That was my experience hiking the Great Wall of […]
