• Five Star Predictions

    In the past, I’ve seen a lot of booktube videos on people’s five-star predictions, and they always looked like a lot of fun. So today, here are three books that I think I would rate five-stars.

  • The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

    This is a spoiler free review of The Wicker King by K. Ancrum, a standalone physiological thriller with fantasy elements. I gave this book 5/5 stars and I absolutely loved it!

Jack has a hallucinatory disorder that causes him to have visions of a fantastical kingdom in place of their own town. August, trying to help Jack as best as he…
