Looking Back at August 2022

Looking Back at August 2022

This month was a busy one. Things kicked off at work (i.e. finished my main training and started supporting customers), a bunch of family events, a work trip, and more teeth work. I don't think I had a single week where I didn't have something going on. So, this post is probably going to be a bit long as I look back at everything that happened in the last month.…

My Thoughts on A Duel with the Vampire Lord (Married to Magic, Book 3) by Elise Kova

My Thoughts on A Duel with the Vampire Lord (Married to Magic, Book 3) by Elise Kova

Elise Kova always writes good books. I have loved every other book in the Married to Magic series by this author, so when I found out she was releasing another one I was so excited about it. Especially when I heard it was a Beauty and the Beast, and a vampire book in the series. Sign me up! Those are two of my favorite things. Even if it's been done a lot, I always like to see new takes on it.…

My Favorite Romance Tropes to Read

My Favorite Romance Tropes to Read

I used to be a fantasy-only reader, though I did enjoy it when there was a romance subplot. But within the last few years, I've been getting more into reading romance novels. The majority of which I read on my Kindle, so it's always funny seeing whatever book my Kindle wants to advertise to me when it's not fully on. Most of the time they don't immediately draw me in, but sometimes they do. I have found a few books through there. So, I thought it would be a fun idea to share which Romance Tropes I love seeing in books.…

Everything I Read in 2021

Everything I Read in 2021

It's been an entire year. I hope everyone had a good year. I thought I would wrap up the year by looking back at every single book I read in 2021. Honestly, I'm surprised by how many books I read. Not only that but I started reading new genres during the course of this year, though it still is related to fantasy/sci-fi (for the most part). We'll see if 2022 is similar in terms of how many books I read. I have a lot on my reading list still.…

My Thoughts on A Dance with the Fae Prince (Married to Magic, Book 2) by Elise Kova

My Thoughts on A Dance with the Fae Prince (Married to Magic, Book 2) by Elise Kova

I loved A Deal with the Elf King which was the first book in this "series". Each book is technically standalone but they all happen in the same universe, roughly around the same time. A Dance with the Fae Prince was inspired by Psyche and Eros as well as Cinderella. While I didn't exactly see the Psyche and Eros theme while reading the book, you definitely get the Cinderella vibes. A girl whose father marries someone before dying an untimely death, only for the stepmother and sister to treat her like a servant before she is "rescued" by a prince. Only there's more to the tale than that.…

Mid-Year Reading Wrap Up

Mid-Year Reading Wrap Up

I figured as we're halfway through the year, I would do a wrap-up of the things that I read. Especially as there were a lot of books that I managed to get through already. I don't know if I'll have quite the same amount read in the second half of the year, but you never know. When I get into a good book, I have a hard time putting it down.…

Book Review: A Deal With the Elf King by Elise Kova

Book Review: A Deal With the Elf King by Elise Kova

I wanted a lighter read after A Court of Silver Flames by Sarah J. Maas, since I ended up reading the entire series multiple times after finishing that. And I couldn't bring myself to jump back into the book I had been reading before I switched to that one. So, I ended up picking up A Deal With the Elf King by Elisa Kova. Which is a novel part of series called Married to Magic. These tales are not connected in a sense of characters, but they do exist in the same world. A Deal With the Elf King is the first (and currently only) book released in this series.…
