Feel free to let me know in […]

Bite-Sized Reviews of Cybils Nominees: The Sisters of Straygarden Place, Rival Magic, Quintessence, Horace Fox in the City, and The Clockwork Crow

I’m not allowed to share any details about our process for choosing the finalists, but I am allowed (and encouraged) to review the books as I read, so I figured I’d share four of them with you today. I hope these bite-sized reviews will […]

November 2020 Wrap-Up and Best of the Bunch

November 2020 Wrap-Up and Best of the Bunch

My Goings-On in November: Finally breathing a sigh of relief over politics. I mean, yeah, there are certain people who claim it’s not over yet, but it’s obviously way over. And I couldn’t be happier! Quarantining. We’re back to restrictions where you’re only supposed to leave the house if you have to.
