Series Catchup: An Ember in the Ashes

Alright deerlings,  have you ever looked at a super HYPED series and just pushed it to the back of your TBR because while you know it’s going to be good you just couldn’t handle waiting between each book in the series? Yeah I did that for Sabaa Tahir’s An Ember in the Ashes series. Now,…

An Unexpected Journey | 24in48 TBR

So I totally didn’t realize that the 24in48 readathon was this weekend! Luckily, I don’t have anything planned other than work, going to Mass and keeping up with the St. Anne…

REVIEW | Sorcery of Thorns

All sorcerers are evil. Elisabeth has known that as long as she has known anything. Raised as a foundling in one of Austermeer’s Great Libraries, Elisabeth has grown up among the tools of sorcery—magical grimoires that whisper on shelves and rattle beneath iron chains. If provoked, they transform into grotesque monsters of ink and leather….
