Mini Reviews: Rebelwing and Renegade Flight by Andrea Tang

Hi readers!

Since I wrote this post on February 21…how is it March already?? I almost don’t want to look back and think about what has happened in this past year. Can you believe it, though, this time in 2020 I was probably on spring break watching The Untamed after getting the news that my college classes were going fully remote. Truly did not fully comprehend what was in store. Time is really something isn’t it.

Mini Reviews: A River of Royal Blood and A Queen of Gilded Horns by Amanda Joy

Hi readers!

And hello March! Aka birthday month 😏but that’s not the point of this post! These past few weeks have taught me NOT to request sequels of a series…you’ll probably have less regrets than you normally do. It all worked out in the end (these reviews have published somewhat on time 😅), thank goodness. But books! Today, I review A River of Royal Blood and its conclusion A Queen of Gilded Horns by Amanda Joy.

February 2021 Wrap Up: What I Read, What I’m Anticipating, and How I’m a Little Bit *Too* Obsessed with Youth With You

Hi readers!

Wow, a wrap up post is actually happening…and it isn’t even New Years Eve! (or is it? 👀 jk) If we’re being honest, I barely remember the beginning of February, so thank goodness for apps like Goodreads and Storygraph where I can track what exactly I’ve read. Otherwise, all I could tell is that I read some really good books, and maybe I can remember them if you give me a sec.

Show Me the Middle Grade #5: Cande @ Cande Reads Recommends

Hi readers!

You don’t know how happy I am to have this Show Me the Middle Grade series!! I am having so much fun talking about middle grade, offering my own recommendations and interviewing other book creators about their favorites. Ash @ Starlight Strands was the very first interview, and I recently interviewed Rajani LaRocca, the author of Red, White, and Whole. Now I’m excited to have Cande @ Cande Reads here to share their middle grade recommendations!

Show Me the Middle Grade #4: Interview with Rajani LaRocca

Hi readers!

How are you all? I can’t believe that it’s already the middle of February! School has once again sort of taken over my life (although I’m glad to get away from the screen when I work at my local library!), so I haven’t been around on this blog for a bit. However, I have been keeping up with posting on my bookstagram, which honestly is new 😂.

Review: Red, White, and Whole by Rajani LaRocca

Hi readers!

I get to talk about one of my favorite books today! The world is not ready for Red, White, and Whole, a story of family and of identity; a love letter to science, particularly biology; and an appreciation for Hindu mythology and ’80s music. Whether you are a reader of middle grade books or not, keep an eye for Red, White, and Whole—this a book that so many need.

Show Me the Middle Grade #3: Ash @ Starlight Strands Recommends

Hi readers!

Today, I bring you a very exciting post: a recommendation and interview post with Ash from Starlight Strands! I remember reading Ash’s post on heartwarming middle grade books by Asian authors a few months ago, and I was thrilled when she responded to my Instagram story asking if there were any middle grade lovers around because I had some ideas ~brewing~ 👀.

5 Reasons to Read Patron Saints of Nothing by Randy Ribay

Hi readers!

This is sort of a review, but not. As I have mentioned quite frequently, I am not the biggest fan of writing reviews (reading them is fine enough). There are select books that I decide that I must write a review for because I want more people to know about the story. The “traditional” way of writing book reviews poses a fair amount of pressure, though. That’s why today, I wanted to mention a few thoughts about a recent read of mine, Patron Saints of Nothing by Randy Ribay, but through a different format.

Review: Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo

Hi readers!

It’s been a while, but it’s review time!! Nowadays, I try to really enjoy what I’m reading and get lost in the story instead of thinking about how I’ll review the book. But then there are books like Last Night at the Telegraph Club that just makes it easy to write a review.
