Science, Sorcery, And a Powerful Commentary on Racism; Recent NetGalley Requests

I probably requested more than I should have today, but on the bright—I guess?—side, one of them was denied this afternoon. I gotta give the publisher credit for timeliness. It’s been a fairly long day and I don’t fully feel as though I’ve really gotten nearly enough done. And where reading is concerned, I certainly…

The Wendy Audiobook and Giveaway!

It was just a short time ago that I wrote about this book and the fact that it would soon have an audiobook to accompany the other formats through which it is available. Well, today’s the day that The Wendy has been released in audiobook format! Ironically, I'd completely forgotten about this until I got an…

A Question of Holmes [Brittany Cavallaro]; 2019 YA Releases

I have to admit, I really should have picked up the Charlotte Holmes series a long time ago. But, the truth is I just haven't had the time and it's not high on my priority list. A Question of Holmes by Brittany Cavallaro is the fourth book in this series and therefore, though I've included the synopsis…

Warriors and Samplers; Recent NetGalley Requests

Today's NetGalley requests are all heavily influenced by the covers, both of which were so eye-catchingly magnificent that there was really little chance at all of me not requesting them. They're both middle grade novels, both featuring powerful female characters, and I cannot wait to read them. Granted, I still have to wait for an…

The Tesla Legacy [K. K. Pérez]; 2019 YA Releases

Honestly, I'm interested in The Tesla Legacy by K. K. Pérez simply on account of the title referencing Nicola Tesla, someone I've always loved and been rather fascinated by. How could I not, then want to read this book? Well, I'm adding it to my TBR somewhat tentatively, since I'm not sure how well the concept is…

I Interrupt Your Previously Scheduled Book Talk for Game of Thrones [What’s Worse?]

Spoilers for GoT, Season 8, Series Finale Honestly, at this point the only thing I have left to say is that—though I would have been annoyed with it and thought they could do better—I would have preferred if the show had ended entirely with Jon taking Dany’s request to be with her and then the…

My Mickey Puppy is Stressing Me Out and Some Neuter Recovery Tips

  This has probably been the single most stressful weekend of my life. It’s funny to say that, really, since it’s due to something a crazy number of people go through. But the truth is that I don’t think I’m fully equipped to handle the amount of havoc my emotions can sometimes have on me.…

My Blissful Books [Away From Home] Blogger Support Feature

Kris @ My Blissful Books is honestly a pretty fantastic person, and it just takes a few seconds of reading her About Me page to see that. She's involved in both the Relay for Life and Out of the Darkness, the first which raises funds for cancer and the second for suicide prevention. I'd only heard…
