Why I Read it: Lincoln In The Bardo by George Saunders has had some serious airtime in my Litsy feed and I know that it has had tons of hype and buzz since before its publications date. It grabbed my attention because Abraham Lincoln and his son Willie are major characters – I have always […]

Review: I loved this! I loved this so much. The more I think about this story and world, the more excited I am that I’ve started this series. The world of The Others, aka the terra indigene, is complex and unique and so much fun. The characters in this story are just as cool as […]

Review | Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal

Review | Kitchens of the Gre..

Review: Sometimes when I read a book, I fall in love with it but I have a hard time knowing exactly why I loved it so much. Characterization, story structure, setting, writing style – it could be any combination of these things. Perhaps I read the book during a really great time in my life…or maybe I […]

Between Us and the Moon by Rebecca Maizel Review

Between Us and the Moon by R..

Review: I really don’t think the book summary for Between Us and the Moon by Rebecca Maizel gives enough weight to this book. There is way more here than a summer romance. This is a book about Sarah, the smart girl that wants to be seen as more than just super-smart. Sarah, who reinvents herself […]

Review: First I noticed the red cover. Then I began to see this book make rounds again and again. But it wasn’t until I read Hannah’s thoughts on So Obsessed With that I really wanted to pick up the book and give it a try. Normally when I read a book like this one, I […]

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern Review

The Night Circus by Erin Mor..

Review: It isn’t often that books garner the amount of pre-publication buzz that The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern did. I began to hear and read about this book months and months ago and the buzz turned into full-on hype over a rather short time. For me, the excitement began over the stunning cover. I knew […]
