Excerpts:

The Bookish Swag Dilemma

I love my fandom merch as much as the next girl.  Finding art and mugs and bookmarks and tote bags designed around my favorite stories is always exhilerating.  Especially when things are created around less popular fandoms, or when they’re particularly original. Still, across several years of subscribing on and off to multiple book boxes, I discovered something. There is such thing as too much merch for me. I know, what a shock? Maybe it was Marie Kondo or maybe just good common sense, but I finally had to step back and acknowledge that I was getting a lot of “stuff”, […]

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

  I had a lot of mixed feelings going into The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.  I had some biases against Sherman Alexie going into it, knowing his history with women and just generally that there are a lot of mixed opinions about this book.  I feel I should be honestly here and say that I went in expecting not to like it.  And ultimately, I didn’t love it?  But it was better than I expected, even if it took me a little while to realize that. One of the abrasive things I felt immediately was the stereotypical nature of […]

Fable by Adrienne Young

  Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and Wednesday Books in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. You know those books where you can’t really pinpoint what was special about it, only that you were utterly absorbed by the language and the world and you breathed in the story as though it was as essential as oxygen itself?  That is how I feel about Fable. In this world of critical reading, I can’t say that there was a lot of diversity in Fable.  I don’t think […]

Analyzing 6 of My Favorite Recent YA Covers

Hey y’all! It’s been a minute since I did a top list, so I thought I’d share with you some of my personal favorite book covers from recent / upcoming YA releases!  We talk about cover love all the time, so today, rather than just window shop for pretty covers, I thought I’d holler out to the artists and designers that made the covers possible and dig into the art itself. Obviously, my favorite covers will change from time to time. In the interest of keeping things contained and also promoting some newer books, I wanted to keep this list to […]
