November Wrap Up //2021

It’s been a while since I’ve had such a fantasy-centric month, I think. I did read 3 romances (and 3 fantasy romances), and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go much time without reading a romance again.

Double Review: Broken Bonds & Savage Bonds by J. Bree

Let me tell you all about one of my newest obsessions, the Bonds that Tie series by J. Bree! I binge-read these two books earlier this month, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it ever since! (The next book is coming out on Dec 21st, and I’ve already preordered the kindle ebook… so this is what I’ll be thinking about during Christmas, I just know it.)

Double Review: Skyward & Starsight by Brandon Sanderson

Now that I’m reading Cytonic (a.k.a. Skyward #3), I thought it was finally time to review these books! This is one of the few scifi series I whole-heartedly enjoy (and maybe even love?) and I just think more people need to read it! *Don’t let the Brandon Sanderson hype get you down, it’s completely different from his other books!

(a late) October Wrap Up //2021

It’s the middle of November so this is rather late, but let’s just get into what I read in October.

This was a somewhat mediocre, below-average reading month for me. The big problem was I had too many backlisted arcs, or blog tour arcs, and although I was indeed interested in reading all of them when I first sent my requests, I ended up not really enjoying most of them. Some were just disappointing on their own, frankly; it wasn’t necessarily a timing thing.

Best Horror Book Covers of 2021

Horror book covers don’t necessarily allude to scary books, and I think that’s a problem. A book cover’s purpose is to attract the reader, naturally, but it should also reflect the genre/subject of the story somewhat. Well-known horror authors such as Stephen King or Riley Sager, have books with boring, typical covers most of the time that do not allude to anything scary or even spooky. (And I’ve read a few of their books and they are at least spooky). It’s disappointing.

Since I have a personal interest in book cover design, I decided to take a look at what I think are the best horror covers of the year! (Obviously, this is just my opinion and I am absolutely biased towards one specific trend or two.)

*Also, although I am focusing primarily on the horror genre here, some if not most of these books may also fall into the mystery/thriller category as the two are often intertwined. Some may even be more thriller than horror. I focus on the book covers and not on the synopsis and I’ve only actually read one of these, anyway. Let’s just get started!

The Best YA Fantasy Novels I Read this Year

I think writing this post made me realize just how much my reading taste is moving away from YA, which isn’t to say I haven’t read some bad YA this year, either. These are the ones that I enjoyed the most this year and that I always recommend whenever I can, so I figured it was time to share them here with you guys too!

ARC Review: The Summoner’s Cry by Ana C. Reis

Goodreads | A powerless Summoner. A cursed Witch Lord. A clash of demons and magic.

After a failed coup against Witch Queen Lilith, rogue Witches Lau and Adam have no choice but to flee and hide. Crushed and surrounded by enemies, the pair arrives at Latis, a peculiar island brimming with strange tales of the supernatural, where they hope to find Adam’s long-lost grimoire — their only shield against Lilith’s wrath.

Rendered powerless after sealing a dragon Spirit in Adam’s flesh to save his life, Lau struggles with loneliness and resentment. Helpless and doomed to live forever in a child’s body, Adam seeks to make peace with a spell he has no strength nor skill to undo.

Once allies in an ancient war, Lau and Adam start drifting apart. But when a dangerous visitor sets foot on Latis and the grimoire is nowhere to be found, the two estranged Witches must work together if they want to save themselves and the lives of the townsfolk they’ve come to love.
