Oh this was so good. Hopeful and humorous and so fun to read, even when it veers into serious territory.

Warm, joyful, totally charming. Heavy political subplots, tied in perfectly with the main romance. Conflict handled nicely while still being authe

A decent if somewhat shortchanged ending to WDR's version of Empress Wu/Wu Zetian.

This covers the years of Emperor Gaozong’s early reign, his path to power over the regent and his wife Empress Wang. TEOBM is kinder to Mei/Wu than most historian

A world where soil is precious and the sea inescapable. An ethereal mix of Waterworld/The Night Circus but smarter than the first and less magical than the second. Atmospheric, melancholy, quietly desperate post-apocalypse. Quite liked but rotates PO ...more

The Defiant by Lesley Livingston

Clear rating
Another lively, riotous, historically-inaccurate-but-so-fun-who-cares adventure with a band of irrepressible gladiatrices. Old enemies, new allies, political cults — all brought to the fore as Fallon fights for her found family.

The Valiant by Lesley Livingston

Clear rating
Unsubtle, wildly historically inaccurate, fast, actiontastic, fun, and voice-y. The plot is straightforward and easily predicted but this book is a roller coaster ride of entertainment I couldn’t help but like.

Wicked Saints by Emily A. Duncan
Rate this book
Clear rating
Dark fantasy filled with blood magic, power, and an endless struggle modeled after the 100 Years’ War. The worldbuilding feels slightly Slavic and could stand some expansion, as could the magic systems. A brutal, reckless read.

Fire & Blood by George R.R. Martin

A fascinating deep dive into the ruling history of the Targaryens in Westeros for the first ~150 years of their dynasty. Not for every reader but die hard ASOIAF fans will find plenty of new information and dragons.

The Winter of the Witch by Katherine Arden
Rate this book
Clear rating
The conflicts of medieval Rus’ come to a head, with Vasya and Morozko at the center of the storm. Religion vs paganism, personal ambition vs social convention, Tatars vs Russians, all wound up neatly in myth and magic.

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
Rate this book
Clear rating
A bloated, repetitive, overpowered mess that finishes a series that should have ended two books ago. Some big moments score (the Thirteen!) but mostly a boring and unnecessary slog full of Maas’s inescapable writing tics.

“You deserve all that and more. It made me happy to see you suffer. I would do it all over again if I could.' I realized I was shaking as the words tumbled out of me. 'I would do it again and again. Every night I would torment you and laugh. Do you understand? You are never safe with me.' I drew a shuddering breath, trying to will away the sting of tears.

He opened his eyes and stared up at me as if I were the door out of Arcadia and back to the true sky. 'That's what makes you my favorite.' He reached up and wiped a tear off my cheek with his thumb. 'Every wicked bit of you.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

“We have calcium in our bones, iron in our veins, carbon in our souls, and nitrogen in our brains. 93 percent stardust, with souls made of flames, we are all just stars that have people names.”

R.L. LaFevers
“And just as love has two sides, so too does Death. While Ismae will serve as His mercy, I will not, for that is not how He fashioned me.
Every death I have witnessed, every horror I have endured, has forged me to be who I am -- Death's justice.”
R.L. LaFevers, Dark Triumph

Catherine Lowell
“Are there any leading men in your life?"

"Several, but they're all fictional.”
