Mini Reviews: So Close to Being the Sh*t by Retta + Untamed by Glennon Doyle + How to Be a Person in the World by Heather Havrilesky

I love a good celebrity memoir. I don't what it is about them, but I find them a lot of fun (especially on audio) and full of random (and not so random) wisdom. Since the pandemic and working from home full time, I've (mostly) listened to a lot more nonfiction.

They are both considered high fantasy as they take place in completely fictional worlds in addition to having some sort of magic system or some sort of magic-like elements … Continue reading Mini Reviews: The Queens of Innis Lear by Tessa Gratton + The Bird and the Sword by Amy Harmon

Mini Reviews: My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite + Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I wasn't sure for awhile how to write these two reviews. I kept going back and forth on whether they should each get their own post or putting them together. I finally settled on doing this post, a mini review of each, because I read them close together and I found that there were some … Continue reading Mini Reviews: My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite + Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
