Favourite Books - The Queen's Rising Duology

Image
It's been about a year since I wrote one of these book reviews. Lately I have been really craving to talk about the books I loved. As a bookworm, I could talk about books forever. But I don't do it as often as I would liked, mainly because I have a hard time gathering my thoughts or bad memory. Or both. So this book review might not be as thorough as it could be, but hopefully it will tell what it needs to say.

If I remember correctly, The Queen's Rising was originally planned as a standalone. And I'm so glad it became a duology. But first, before we get into my detailed thoughts, here's book one's blurb: Born out of wedlock, Brienna is cast off by her noble family and sent to Magnolia House - a boarding house for those looking to study the passions: art, music, dramatics, wit and knowledge. Brienna must discover her passion a

Just in case you forgot about this new release, I'm here talking about it again, putting it in the spotlight for just a brief moment. Photo by Zoltan Tasi on  Unsplash I've been intrigued by The Pirate Hunter Chronicles since around the time the first book released. And it keeps on getting better each time a new book is added to the series. Which is why I'm happy to help bring attention to it when I can, especially as I can't buy and read the books yet (it's high on my TBR so hopefully soon).   A Wealthy duke from a mysterious island. Rumors of the dead walking. And siren songs of immortality. A year has passed, and another Scaera Dumeda is about to begin. Captain Adi and and the rest of the pirate hunter crew are escorting the Belfarren nobles when they come across a fleet claiming to belong to the Pirate Nation, led by the last person she ever expected to see again. Perhaps it's not as easy to leave her past behind as she thought. As Ravin settles into his ne

So while I like to not have tags over my head, it can get mundane or even overwhelming. I imagine you guys can get sick of tags too. I'm really trying to be intentional about what I post is something I love and enjoy doing because it's self-care to do what you love and not what you feel obligated to do for your audience and stuff. It's especially important when your mental state crashes on you.  Which is me right now. Or was. I feel a lot better now than I was months ago. So that's something. Honestly, because I'm feeling better I am writing this post. I don't know if it is just me, but I can tell looking over my recent posts that, even though I have been consistently posting, it looks like a struggle. I just had no energy or time to do those posts my soul is burning to do. But that's okay. Even though I have been mostly writing posts for blog tours and cover reveals, those posts helped me to keep going. They have been honestly a blessing to me, keeping me a
