The Wasteland – Q&A with W.A.W. Parker
Everybody and their mom knows by now that I adored The Wasteland. It's such a great book it's already in my Top '21 Chart, first place. I felt like I wanted to indulge a bit more into it tho, so I did the thing any sensible girl would do in my place: I contacted W.A.W. Parker and asked him if he was interested in doing a little interview with me. And he said yes 😀 thank you so much, Adam!
72 Reasons to Be Vegan – Gene Stone, Kathy Freston
January is long gone, but reading books on veganism is one of my guilty pleasures. Despite having been plant-based for more than fourteen years now, they keep me motivated and occasionally help me find some new, interesting information. While I generally prefer reading recipe books --a decent area of my bookcase is dedicated to those, actually--, some titles, such as anything written by Jonathan Safran Foer, are simply too good to pass.
A Very Vengeful Valentine
Monsters are not keen on Valentine’s day. Sure, they fall in love, but they’re not big fans of human celebrations. They’d like not to have them pushed on. This might be the reason why the cafeteria is a mess of paper hearts, flowers and confetti when my shift begins. It might also explain why Charon … Continue reading A Very Vengeful Valentine
The French House – Helen Fripp
Hey mama, look at me, I’m on the way to the promise land --or at least, I’m on a very lucky streak 😀 last month Edelweiss gave me The Wasteland and now Netgalley is trying to one-up on it with The Champagne Widow by H. Fripp.
Pearl of Meissa – Cloey Kinney
Wanna know something, guys? Being asked to review a book is one of the best feelings in the world. Knowing someone trusted me to read their story and be fair about it is always a huge mood boost for me, more than choosing something to read on an ARC site could ever be. I will … Continue reading Pearl of Meissa – Cloey Kinney
Stray Witch – Eva Alton
Alba, a mother of two, is going through a rough divorce. Her life seems to change for the best when she meets Clarence, vampire and scout for the vampire queen of Emberbury, but things might not be what they seem, and soon Alba is torn between her feelings and her fears. And a desperate need for money. Clarence is an old school vampire on a redemption path, while Alba is a woman who has lost herself. She's a stray, both as a witch and as a person: no close family, no real friends. While she's not looking for her tribe, it's pretty clear she needs one. Her arc is one many women can relate with, and this is the reason why empathizing with her is so easy. In fact, I found myself rooting for her and her two daughters from the very beginning, especially given the situation they are running away from.
