Book Review : The Warm Hands of Ghosts

Book Review : The Warm Hands of Ghosts

Every now and then a book comes along that makes you feel like you’re a better person for reading it—The Warm Hands of Ghosts is undoubtedly one of those books. The Warm Hands of Ghosts details a time, World War I, which is so often lost in the shadow of what came next. Author Katherine Arden lovingly and unapologetically places that time period out in the sun and shows it […]

Book Review : Small Spaces

Book Review : Small Spaces

As it’s October, I really wanted to read some more spooky books, whether they were actually scary or just in the spirit of Halloween.

Book Review : The Bear and the Nightingale

Book Review : The Bear and the Nightingale

I bought The Bear and the Nightingale on a whim after seeing it on sale via Bookbub. I thought it sounded interesting, but I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. In all honesty, I adored this book. The prose was absolutely beautiful, the story completely unique and aptly showing the darker side of fairy tales, and the heroine was strong and utterly herself. As soon as I […]
