Hello! I hope you’ve all had lovely weekends. My weekend was pretty good. I went to a pumpkin patch with some friends this afternoon, and it ended up raining really hard, but it was so much fun! I only have a four day week at school because it’s a grading day, which is really nice, so I’m at least looking forwards to that!
Anyways, I’m really excited for today’s review: it’s for one of my favorite books, and one of my most anticipated releases of this year: Our Violent Ends, by Chloe Gong, the finale to the These Violent Delights duology!
These Violent Delights is a historical fantasy set in 1920’s Shanghai, about the heirs to two gangs, the Scarlets and the White Flowers, who despite a blood feud going back must work together to stop a dangerous monster tearing through the city, infecting people and causing them to rip out their very own throats.
It’s an incredible book, so when I received an advance copy from the publisher I was ecstatic. So, without further ado, I’m going to dive right into my review for this amazing historical fantasy.

Hello! Today was a long day at school, but I don’t have too much homework so I was able to finish up this review!! A few months ago, Algonquin Young Readers sent me an advance copy of Cold-Blooded Myrtle, the third book in the Myrtle Hardcastle mysteries series, and I was so excited to read it!! This amazing middle-grade historical mystery comes out tomorrow, and I thought it was the perfect time to share my thoughts on the book with you all.
This review does not have spoilers for any of the books in the series, so you’ll be safe reading on, no matter now many of the books you’ve read. And with that, I’m going to dive into this review!

I don’t have much to say in this intro, so I’m going to dive into my thoughts on this amazing book!

Hello, and welcome to the review of my most anticipated releast of 2021! The Bronzed Beasts is the conclusion to The Gilded Wolves trilogy, a historical fantasy series that I’ve been following for a very long time. I first read The Gilded Wolves at the beginning of 2020, then eagerly awaited The Silvered Serpents, and painfully waited for The Bronzed Beasts. I ended up miraculously winning a goodreads giveaway for The Bronzed Beasts, which is how I ended up with the advance copy I’m going to be reviewing today!
This review, like all of mine, will be fully spoiler free for all the books in the trilogy, so without further ado, let’s get into the review!

Hello! I can’t believe that it’s already the last day of May, but I’m so excited for June. I’m going to finish 8th grade in a couple weeks (which means I’ll start high school in the fall, which I’m not at all ready for), and I’m really excited for summer. There are a ton of amazing books coming out in June, and I am incredibly lucky to have been able to read an advance copy of one, Instructions for Dancing, by Nicola Yoon. I read Nicola Yoon’s other two books years ago, and was thrilled to find out that there was another coming out! Instructions for Dancing is an really wonderful book, and I’m very excited to share my thoughts on it!
