Review: Kingdom of Ash

Kingdom of AshSo I hesitate to call this a review, because it’s mostly just a massive ramble about the final book in the Throne of Glass series. But I have too many thoughts not to put together some sort of post about this book. I’ve been waiting for it for so long!!

I’ll start with a few spoiler-free thoughts. Overall, I really enjoyed Kingdom of Ash and thought it was a decent end to the series. In fact, I generally found it more satisfying than the end of the A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy, though I think I prefer that series to Throne of Glass. I’m a big fan of both, though, don’t get me wrong! Continue reading

September Arc Roundup: Pride, The Storm Runner, For the Duke’s Eyes Only

I have another batch of arcs from Book Expo to review today, but since these were all released on the same day, I figured I’d group them together in a miscellaneous post rather than by genre like I’ve done in the past so I can get them out in a timely manner. I have a YA contemporary, a middle grade fantasy, and a historical romance to cover in this batch! Continue reading

Fantasy Arc Roundup: Trail of Lightning, Spinning Silver, Time’s Convert

There are a number of reasons I don’t like to do full review posts for books, but I still want to share my thoughts on some of the different arcs I received this summer, especially since I’ve moved my monthly posts to more quick takes. So I thought I’d share a bunch of short reviews in a series of arc roundups. Continue reading

Review: An American Marriage

So I’m departing a little bit from my Feminist Lit February TBR with the task of reading a feminist freebie. I was originally planning to read Beloved by Toni Morrison, but I just couldn’t get into it. It was a difficult narrative style to keep up with and I didn’t like the story, so I decided to stop forcing it. Ironically enough, I replaced it with An American Marriage by Tayari Jones, which I also didn’t particularly enjoy, but more on that below. Continue reading
