Important Update!

Hi everyone! Sorry for disappearing for a bit without warning, but I wanted to give you all some important updates on our lives. Meg and I have moved to college in just this past week, and are both going through all the craziness of orientation, registering for classes, and adjusting to our new lives. As a result, we’ve both taken an impromptu step back from this blog. Once we have more of an idea of our routines and schedules, I promise we’ll be back to normal (and if a hiatus is necessary for us again, we’ll update accordingly.) For now, please bear with us! We love running this blog and connecting with all of you. Sharing our love of books with others is such a great joy, and we cherish the opportunities that we have. Thank you all for understanding, and if you wanna keep up to date with us, you can find all our personal social media in our links tab!

ARC Review: The Devils You Know by M.C. Atwood

When they’re separated from the group, they discover that what lies within Boulder House is far more horrifying than any local folklore. To survive, they’ll have to band together in ways they never could have imagined and ultimately confront the truths of their darkest selves.

Discussion: The Intersection of Sexuality and Villainy

Hi everyone! I’ve been thinking about starting some discussion posts for a while, and decided to start off with a topic that’s been on my mind for years. As we continue to push for diverse books, it’s always important to recognize the good, the bad, and the ugly, so that we can continue to improve and progress. In this case, I want to start off talking about sexuality and its direct or indirect relation to a character’s villainy.
