Audiobook Review: Conspiracy of Ravens by Lila Bowen

DISCLAIMER: I normally write spoiler free reviews. In this case I really wanted to talk about some of the diversity features of Conspiracy of Ravens. There may be spoilers in regard to that aspect of the book. Last year, Wake of Vultures was an unexpected hit for me. I just loved the western vibe, I loved the protagonist. As a...

Review: The Facefaker’s Game by Chandler J. Birch

The Facefaker’s Game is an entertaining coming of age story that features a number of familiar, but quite likable, tropes. I want to stress that it’s not a negative to contain tropes. I firmly believe these are traits that are so common because they can be quite enjoyable, which is the case within The Facefaker’s Game.

Review: Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood

I have to confess when I first saw this book, I did not realize it was a retelling of The Tempest by William Shakespeare. There are some authors that have impressed me enough with my previous reads I honestly don’t feel the need to read the synopsis closely before diving in when I get my hands on it. This was...
