Book Review: Unsettled Ground

Good morning! As I write this intro I am sweating in my living room thanks to a lack of air-conditioning and soaring Bay Area temperatures. Apparently we’re in for a bit of a heat-wave and I am not looking forward to it. On the bright side, it means I have an excuse to be extremelyContinue reading “Book Review: Unsettled Ground”

Book Review: How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House | Women’s Prize for Fiction Shortlist

Hello bibliophiles! Today I am back with a weeks-old review on a book that sent me into a very sad spiral for a while. I drafted this review way back then but held off on posting because I wanted to ruminate over it a little longer. It’s now time, so let’s get into the second-lastContinue reading “Book Review: How the One-Armed Sister Sweeps Her House | Women’s Prize for Fiction Shortlist”

Book Review: The Chosen and the Beautiful

Jordan Baker grows up in the mostContinue reading “Book Review: The Chosen and the Beautiful”

Mini Review: Cursebreakers Series

Pride Month TBR

Hello bibliophiles! Pride month is right around the corner and I thought it would be fun to compile books from my TBR that are written by LGBTQ+ authors and/or featuring queer main characters. I’m not going to be setting a specific TBR for June – with my internship starting, I want to keep the pressureContinue reading “Pride Month TBR”

Book Review: Piranesi | Women’s Prize For Fiction Shortlist

Happy Tuesday! It is officially the time of the month when I divert from my TBR. I’ve been mood-reading and picked up a couple fantasy and dystopian books just to fulfill my need for escapism – and then I remembered that I wanted to finish reading all the books shortlisted for the Women’s Prize forContinue reading “Book Review: Piranesi | Women’s Prize For Fiction Shortlist”

Book Review: Arsenic and Adobo

Good morning bibliophiles! Today’s intro will be short and sweet, just like this book (although flavorful might be a more apt descriptor, but more on that in a moment). After Dial A for Aunties (my review here), I was craving another cozy mystery so Arsenic and Adobo seemed like the perfect choice! Goodreads synopsis: TheContinue reading “Book Review: Arsenic and Adobo”
