How is it the middle of December, gentle reader? I am just a girl looking at her calendar confused because it was September yesterday and she doesn’t know how to cope. Anyways… hi and welcome back! Or rather, I am back (again) and happy to return and look forward into 2022. It’s definitely time to dust off my blogging skills and carve out my personal hobby time again… because I’ve missed it and all of you dreadfully.
Welcome to the third annual Bookish Jazz Awards! 🎉 Established in 2019 as the Bookish Reader’s Choice Awards, the awards are designed to give readers their voice to determine the “best” reads of the year

The 2021 Bookish Jazz Award Season is now open and accepting YOUR nominations for the best books of the year! Nominations across genres for both YA and adult books will be accepted until December 14, 2021…. so what are you waiting for?
Friends, this book reminded me how much I love to read. No hyperbole. All of Us Villains hooked me from the start, kept me on the edge of my seat until the last page, and has left me starving for more (why doesn’t book 2 come out nooooowwwww?!). All of Us Villains is a must-read if you like your characters are morally gray as they come, each with their own complicated history and motives doing whey they think is right. With amazing worldbuilding and an intricate magic system, this book just checks all of my boxes!
After suffering one of the worst reading slumps in recent history, All of Us Villains reignited my love of reading. It is as if this book were written for me as it is a smorgasbord of all my favorite dark tropes: morally gray characters, ruthless families, enemies to lovers (and lovers to enemies), a corruption arc, and a goth cursemaker wearing too much eyeliner who I am
probably much too obsessed with.
Greetings friends, long time no see! I’ve been away for two months now and to be honest that time flew. I’m honestly flabbergasted that it’s November already. Like, how? The year is coming to a close and it’s really weird, but at the same time I love all the paid holidays in the last 6 weeks of the year. And the upcoming break will be needed, because I am tired.
You’ll notice the formatting and sections for my monthly adventure logs have been updated. I’ve largely decided to keep most personal updates on my Patreon to steer away from treating Reader Voracious as an online diary, but don’t worry – I’ll likely still overshare on Twitter and Discord!
How is it already September? Seriously, I blinked in March 2020 and here we are with slightly cooler temperatures and Pumpkin Spice (I’m not complaining!). But that’s not the reason for today’s impromptu post. I wanted to let you all know that Reader Voracious is taking a brief hiatus and make it official instead of just ghosting for a couple of weeks like usual.
Right now, I expect to take the month of September off and come back in October refreshed and ready to go, but depending how things progress that may change.
Haunted houses. Messy people making bad decisions. “Destination horror.” What could go wrong? Nothing But Blackened Teeth is a quiet piece of character-driven horror that draws on Japanese folklore while also shining a light on the horrors of fractured relationships. I absolutely loved this novella and can’t wa
