Hello my name is Bec and I have 209 books on my TBR pile. My actual, IRL TBR pile Most of these books have been sitting there for over 12 months because I am a terrible person who had such little time last year. (And the time I did have was spent playing video games because I just did). It’s […]

5 Things About Retribution Rails by Erin Bowman

January 3, 2018 Review 6 ★★★★

Once I started I couldn’t stop. I was almost late for the train one day when I just HAD to finish the final 50 pages because I […]

5 Girls that Embody Brains over Brawn

December 21, 2017 Discussion, Recommendations 16

As much as I love reading about kick-ass girls in fantasy novels, sometimes I just wish they were a little more like me:¬†uncoordinated, clumsy, and with absolutely zero upper body strength.
