Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Wanted More Of

A weekly blog meme by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This theme might seem a bit vague but my interpretation is this: I immediately read a book and wanted more of either: 1) books within the same universe, 2) books by the same author, or 3) books with the same theme (i.e. enemies-to-lovers, childhood friends-to-lovers, dark fantasy, or the like).

Top 10 Tuesday: Books I’m Thankful for This Year

A weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

Happy Tuesday, friends! It’s Thanksgiving week here in the U.S. of A and while it’s incredibly different from ones in the past, I think it’s still a good time to reflect on the past year and literally just how crazy everything has been.

ARC Review: “The Silence of Bones” by June Hur

A huge thanks to Fierce Reads / Feiwel & Friends for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Content warnings (from author’s own GR review of her book): violence, murder, gore, character death, misogyny, mention and description of animal abuse, mention and description of suicide

I’ve eagerly anticipated this book since I first read the publication announcement on Twitter. I waited a while before sending an email to the publisher, asking for a review copy. I’m incredibly indebted to them for allowing me to read this book early and celebrate it.
