ARC Review: The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

Hi, The Beautiful Ones is absolute perfection: it made me feel so many feelings and I love it so much. I don’t read a lot of romance: I picked this book up solely because it’s written by Silvia Moreno-Garcia… and I think I want/need more romance in my life now???

This book ruined me and it took me almost two weeks to feel up to writing this review. The Beautiful Ones is a beautiful story of love and betrayal, of innocence and depravity, of conformity and passion, of youth and adulthood, of privilege and entitlement. Fast paced and instantly engaging, this book is told in the third perspective of three main characters who are inextricably linked and made me feel so many varying emotions while reading it.

18 New Books Hitting the Shelves in April 2021 | Anticipated Reads

I can’t believe that it’s already April, but you know what that means… it’s time for a new list of Anticipated Reads to crush your TBRs! It’s genuinely my favorite time of the month (but my bank account’s least favorite for sure). Is this the time of the year people like to read thrillers? Because there sure seem to be a lot coming out this month…


Think of the Reader Voracious Anticipated Reads as a list of noteworthy books coming up for publication. These posts focus on books from my preferred genres (fantasy, science fiction, mystery/thriller in YA & adult) but are by no means a representation of everything being published. There’s no way I will be able to get to all of these books personally, but I think my readers would be interested in them so I want to share and boost.

The Adventure Log is my monthly wrap-up post!

Happy Spring to my fellow friends in the Northern Hemisphere, and happy April! March was a wild month for me, and I’m surprised it flew by as fast as it did considering I didn’t really do anything? Okay that’s not true because I did work a lot on the blog and improving my patreon, but other than that? I basically listened to Nightwish all month with a focus on their older discography and continued to mourn Marko’s departure from the band.

There are no fools in this post as the past year has been enough for all of us lmao. Let’s move beyond horrible “jokes” as a society, okay?

Let’s touch base on all things March and check in on how I’m doing with my 2021 goals, shall we?

Evergreen Content and Book Bloggers | SEO Basics

Greetings gentlefriends to the first Reader Voracious guide of 2021 – all about evergreen content and book bloggers. The book blogging niche is a quirky one and it’s no secret that a lot of “tried and true SEO ‘musts'” just don’t work for us due to the nature of our readership and content. But that doesn’t mean we can’t tweak these tools for our niche.

It’s been so long since I’ve released a new guide into the world and let me tell you… I finally feel like myself again. This post and its follow-up coming next month have been in my drafts for literally months. I’ve worked on them off and on as time allowed, but the scope kept growing exponentially as I have a lot of Opinions…. because today I am here in defense of the book review. Let’s get into it!
