Plain Bad Heroines

I was on a bit of a roller coaster with this book and after finishing this book my feelings for it are conflicted. On one hand I really enjoyed the creepy boarding school vibe, the trippy ‘magic’, and the originality of the story. On the other hand there were some parts of the story that…

Malibu Rising

I adore Taylor Jenkin Reid’s book The Seven Husband’s of Evelyn Hugo. It’s one of my all time favorite and most recommended reads. When Daisy Jones and the Six came out in 2019, I jumped to get my hands on a copy, and while it was a fun read it was never a favorite of…

My Thoughts Set in both 1943 and in 2001; and in the United States and on the island of Jeju, Korea; The Mermaid of Jeju is a wonderful story of resilience, family tradition, and love. A big ★★★★★ for Sumi Hahn’s debut novel. I loved so many things about this book. I loved the characters,…

Thoughts I loved Bringing Down the Duke last year, and knew I needed to read the second book in the League of Extraordinary Women series. This time we follow Lord Ballatine and Lady Lucie, who we met in the first book. Tristian is of course amazing in this book. He’s much deeper than we originally…
