I finished reading Claudia Day’s Heartbreaker over a month ago, but needed time to process the story before writing a full review. Over the past few weeks, though, I still haven’t fully processed everything that happened in this story. This might seem annoying to some people—not experiencing that sense of a complete story—but I’ve come to accept that’s part of what makes books so intriguing.
I had been excited to read Not Her Daughter ever since I started following Rea Frey on Instagram and learned that she was working on a book. Her photos and bookish content were always so inspiring and well-curated. I knew right away that her debut novel would be, too. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint.
In 2014 I was studying international development and project management at Humber College. In April of that year, 276 females were kidnapped from a school in Nigeria. You might remember it being referred to as the Chibok schoolgirls kidnapping (Chibok was the town they were living and attending school in). I still remember this event, as everyone in my program was talking about it.
The Marrow Thieves was the best book I’ve read (so far) this year, and I need to tell you why.
I always stress out about hosting my book club. I worry that everyone will hate the book I pick, they won’t want to talk about it, and that the treats I put out will taste terrible. None of this has ever happened, but I still stress out about it.
ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD!
Wait, what? I mean . . . I’m here to talk about Thursday TBR!
Another week has gone, and another book has sat unread on my shelf. Well, if I’m going to be honest, it’s more like a few hundred books have gone unread, but this week I’m talking about one in particular: American Gods, by Neil Gaiman.
