Raybearer by Jordan Ifewko (ARC)

In light of recent events, I have been in a serious reading slump. I have been struggling to focus enough to read and none of the books I’d tried to read were holding my attention….until Raybearer. This book was breath of fresh air, well written, and a welcome distraction in this time of unprecedented difficulty.Continue reading “Raybearer by Jordan Ifewko (ARC)”

Todd Sweeney by David Pratt

This book was such a mind bend. I don’t even know how to describe it or where to begin….. TW: blood, death, sexual content, kidnap, cruising Grindr for love, and sex on top of, in front of, and in the presence of corpses. Its a little weird.

I read this book after seeing a l l the buzz and a l l the hype for the past year on bookstagram and I was pleasantly surprised!

Fireborne by Rosaria Munda (ARC)

It took me nearly a month to read this slightly-larger-than-average book, and I think the main reason why is because I almost felt like I was two books at once. Seem confusing? Let’s unpack this… 🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉🐉 MCs: Lee sur (rider of) Pallor Antigone sur (rider of) Aela Atreus ~mysterious Tournament attendee* various side homies Setting:Continue reading “Fireborne by Rosaria Munda (ARC)”
