Pride and Prometheus | John Kessel

An amazing blend of Frankenstein and Pride & Prejudice. Quirky and fun, but impressively maintains the heart and soul of the two classics. Highly recommend!

Artemis | Andy Weir

Andy Weir is back with his unique ability to take hard core science and make it funny and relatable. Adored Jazz with her sassy, independent attitude. Capers in general are quite entertaining, but capers in space are my new favorite thing!!! Full review on my blog #bookstagram #bookreview #bookblog #artemis

Full of scandal and privilege, She Regrets Nothing pulls the veneer off of wealth to examine the darker underbelly. Full of intriguing examinations of power, money, gender, privilege, elitism and more, this book is far more than it appears. Very relevant and full of amazing topics to discuss and dissect.

The Hazel Wood | Melissa Albert
post image
Pickpick

A unique combination of urban fantasy and twisted fairy tales! What if fairy tales are real? The Hazel Wood follows Alice, a girl raised on the run from “the bad luck”. Always forcing them to leave and making the edges of her reality feel haunted. Is it bad luck that chases them? Or something else? Fantastic book with a very dark bite!

"We'd all be destroyed if we could remember everything." The Wilding Sisters is a powerful novel examining the powerful impact of love and loss. Told through the eyes of Margot and Jessie, two women separated by decades but united by more than they realize. This is a beautiful novel about sisters and mothers, and how secrets can both destroy us and unite us. Full review on my blog, link in my bio ??‍????‍? #firsttoread #bookstagram

Arboria Park | Katherine Tyler Wall

Arboria Park is a charming book about family, written in a way that takes us through not just the journey of a family. We see how society changes from the 1950's forward. It isn't just social issues and change, we also get a journey through the evolution of music. Through it all, the Halloran family learns family is more than blood and a home is more than a house.
