I Read All Released Books in Icehome Series by Ruby Dixon

After reading Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon, I initially wasn't going to read the spin-off series called Icehome but I found myself reading all 16 books that have been released as of June 2022. There are two more still coming. Similar to the first series, each book takes place from a different couple's perspective. There is some overlap between the stories are characters are separated or relationships happen at the same time. Not to mention, there is also overlap with the main series, and characters from there make appears throughout the Icehome series. But you don't have to read that series in order to read this one.…

Give Me a Topic, Get a Recommendation

Give Me a Topic, Get a Recommendation

I have been seeing this come up on my FYP for TikTok for the last week or so. Mainly from Barnes & Noble employees. One of them goes up to their co-workers with slips of paper, and whatever is on that slip the employee has to recommend a book. So, I thought I would do the same thing. Only instead of asking co-workers, I asked those on my Discord server. I might make this a series, so leave your "tropes" or "topics" in the comments and they might get featured in the next one of these.…

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.…

July 2021 Goals

July 2021 Goals

It's finally here. Moving month! I'm leaving the apartment I've been in for the last two years and going to a two-bedroom apartment within the same building that checks off all the boxes. I'm really excited to move in, but at the same time, nervous/stressed because I'm moving. No matter if it's not a major move, it's still a change. But I'm going to have sunlight, better outdoor access for Pixie, an area for work/streaming since I do that from home, and other things I'm looking forward to. Granted, it's happening at the end of the month but still, this month is largely going to be focused on moving.…

I Read All of Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon

I'm not a romance reader. I enjoy fantasy books where romance is but a subplot. So, when I saw Ice Planet Barbarians all over TikTok, initially I was like "thanks but no thanks." And then I don't know what got me to change my mind. I decided to read the first book of this sci-fi romance series and couldn't stop reading through to the rest. There are 22 full books and several short stories. I did not read the short stories mostly as they were add-ons that explore things that already happened in the main series but from another character's perspective. Each book in the series takes place from a different couple's perspective. So while the same characters appear in all the books, they each have one book that is theirs that takes place at various times. Some of them overlap, while others take place a while after the first one. So, you can't go out of order while reading them. As things mentioned in the books wouldn't make sense completely if you didn't read the previous ones.…
