The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee (ARC Review)

🌟4 stars 🌟

I was so excited when I won this ARC in an Instagram giveaway from Katherine Tegen Books! Now that I’ve finished The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, I’ve been oscillating between 4/4.5 star rating before settling on 4 stars, because I was engrossed in the book while reading it, but it wasn’t one that left me thinking about it for days afterwards. Although not as action-packed as The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, this was still a fun read. This review will contain minor spoilers for The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

I think this book would be great for people who enjoy:

  • Strong Female Protagonists
  • Historical Fiction
  • Girl Gangs
  • Minority Representation

Down the TBR Hole #3

Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story. Its purpose is to help narrow down your TBR list on Goodreads by selecting 5 titles each week and deciding if you want to keep it on your TBR or get rid of it! I saw this on A Court of Crowns and Quills and thought it would be a great idea since my Goodreads TBR is WAY TOO LONG!

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

Obsidio by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 All the Stars in the Universe 🌟

The last book of The Illuminae Files trilogy was such a roller coaster of emotions. It didn’t make me cry as much as Illuminae, but it definitely tore at my heart in some parts. Obsidio is filled with humor, heartbreak, and hope. What an amazing finale. This review will contain spoilers for Illuminae and Gemina.

First Lines Friday #3

Happy Friday! Today’s book is one that has been sitting on my TBR for awhile, but I’ve heard so many good things about it!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Gemina by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff

🌟 4 space station stars 🌟

Although this book didn’t rip out my heart like Illuminae did, it was still a fascinating read that takes place right where Illuminae ended. Gemina follows different protagonists at the Heimdall space station. Also, yes I am aware that I read this book a month ago and I’m just posting it now.
