RBR: The Fires of Vengeance, Wings of Ebony, Our Dark Duet, etc.

I’m excited to say that, after half a year of waiting, I’ve finally finished the second books of two series that had me hyped last year. Those being: The Fires of Vengeance by Evan Winter, part of a four-book series called the Burning; and Our Dark Duet by Victoria Schwab, the conclusion to the Monsters … More RBR: The Fires of Vengeance, Wings of Ebony, Our Dark Duet, etc.

RBR: Tell The Truth and Shame the Devil, Malice, Call Down the Hawk, The Gilded Ones, The Magician King

Welcome to another rapid book review. It’s been about a month since I’ve done one of these so I have several books to get through. The first one was an audiobook. The rest were physical copies.

Stories Within Stories: A Consideration of Novel Structure (Cloud Atlas, Starless Sea, If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler)

Rapid Book Review: Mistborn and the Romance Reading Challenge

Welcome! We have six books to review today so I’m going to try to keep each of them brief. But for those of you who don’t know, I decided to do a reading challenge in February with books that were primarily about romance. Now, this isn’t my wrap-up post for that; that’s going to come … More Rapid Book Review: Mistborn and the Romance Reading Challenge
