ARC Review: The Lights of Prague by Nicole Jarvis

Welcome to my stop on the Titan Books blog tour for The Lights of Prague! I’m so thankful that Titan reached out to me about this book and tour, as always the recommendation was perfectly tailored to my interests. Be sure to check out the other stops on the blog tour – I’ve included links at the end of my post.

Words cannot express how much I adored this debut. Atmospheric and engaging, The Lights of Prague swept me away to another time and place. This is a must read for fans of immersive historical fantasy.

ARC Review: The Nature of Witches by Rachel Griffin

The Nature of Witches is pitched as Practical Magic meets Twister, and goodness does it deliver! Action-packed but full of heart, it’s a love letter to nature and a journey to loving yourself and I adored this debut fantasy so much. There’s still time to pre-order a copy and help combat climate change — a tree will be planted for every book preordered!

28 New Books Hitting the Shelves in June 2021 | Anticipated Reads

It’s the most wonderful time of the month ๐ŸŽถ! That’s right, May is already basically over and this Tuesday ushers in a new month of releases you’ll be itching to add to your TBRs. And this month is a doozy with 28 books I want to highlight, many of which coming out on June 1 and many with amazing pre-order incentives that you still have time for.

You know how last month I said that May was the largest Anticipated Reads post? Well that title didn’t last long as it pales in comparison to June’s monster of a post. I swear the publishing gods keep raining down book-shaped blessings, and I’m not mad about it. Related: how do I remove the need to sleep so I can get in more reading time?

How Video Games Help Calm Anxiety During Book Slumps ft. Game Recommendations

It’s no secret that I adore all forms of adventure: hiking and camping, reading sff books, and playing video games all help me to forget the world for awhile. And with it, my anxiety. I don’t talk about my struggles with anxiety and depression much on Reader Voracious, but they’re part of my everyday existence and shape who I am as a person. The same anxiety that cripples me with fear also inspires me to work hard and take pride in my work.

As Mental Health Awareness Month comes to an end, I wanted to open up a little bit about my anxiety to maybe help others out there. I knew this was the perfect time to write about my love of video games and how they help manage my anxiety.

ARC Review: A War of Swallowed Stars (Celestial Trilogy #3) by Sangu Mandanna

Friends, it’s been three weeks since I read and was destroyed by A War of Swallowed Stars. Emotional devastation wormed its way into my life with the conclusion of the Celestial Trilogy and to be honest? I’m okay with that because I love these characters so much and am thankful for the time I had with them. (Yes, Esmae and Sybilla and Max are all real to me, and I won’t be accepting criticism at this time.)
