Book Review: House of Earth and Blood

Overall Rating: 5/5 Sarah J. Maas does it again. I first read her books back in 2017 and despite the fact that I strongly associate them with taking the MCAT (it did not go well), they are some of my favorite books to this day.

Book Review: Conjure Women

Overall Rating: 5/5 If you have seen Conjure Women before, you perhaps imagined that this is a book about magic. Its beautiful cover art – filled with colorful flowers, mysterious figures, and complementary tones – is enough to entice one to concoct an entire fantasy before the first page is even opened… or at leastContinue reading “Book Review: Conjure Women”
