    Summary Ren is from the streets who would do anything for her sister. Her and her sister create the con of a lifetime so they never have to be on the streets again, but it just pulls them into a world of even more dirt and destruction.  My Thoughts  One of my bookstagram friends recommended this book with the highest of praises and because I trust her judgement I had to pick it up. I was right and I was a little wrong at the same time. Yes, this book was amazing and I loved it, but BOY WAS IT EXHAUSTING! I loved the book world and I loved each…

    My Dark Vanessa

    Summary Vanessa’s high school teacher reaches out when he is accused of sexul abuse by another one of her classmates. He asks her to be on his side and she accepts because they were in love. Weren’t they?  My Thoughts  This story hit me so strongly in the gut that I still have acid reflux from it. It was haunting, devastating, so upsetting, and just awful, but such a necessary read. It was not at all of what I expected and what it turned out to be was so much worse than I thought. I mean this all sounds like I didn’t like the book or the story, but this…

    The Bone Shard Daughter

    Summary The emperor has ruled for many years using bone shard magic to make constructs that keep order. However, the rebellion has made life in the empire difficult and his daughter may be the only way or the empire to stay together. My Thoughts  So I watched a TikTok video and saw that Sarah J.

However, when the spell that has been keeping her safe goes away, she is confronted by a past that she never knew existed and the reasons why she never fit in all make sense.  My Thoughts  I was so blessed to receive this book as an ARC from NetGalley. This story’s concept is so cool and I couldn’t wait to read all about it. Although I really liked the concept and I found the story super engaging, I felt like there was a little too much…

    Folklorn

    Summary Elsa Park is a physicist that has been able to escape the dynamics and the expectations of her family. But when her mother breaks her long term silence, Elsa is forced to go back home and face her past demons. My Thoughts  I received this amazing ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review and I am so grateful. The symbiosis of this book sounded so great, but I honestly didn’t know what to expect. It had elements of science, elements of Korean mythology, and elements of family dynamics and struggles. It sounded like a lot and I honestly didn’t know how it would all blend together and…
