The Once and Future Witches, by Alix E. Harrow

The Once and Future Witches

I adored this book so much, but it’s not a light or easy read. This historical fantasy about three sisters in 1893 does not permit them to take an easy route on their journey towards a decent life. There are two romances, but they are not central to the book, which keeps its focus on the sisters as they struggle for autonomy and power for women in a ferociously patriarchal world. Here’s the plot description … Continue reading The Once and Future Witches, by Alix E. Harrow

Soggy Bottoms: The Ten Thousand Creme Caramels of January

Soggy Bottoms - a Bookish Journey through Technical Bakes with a floury spoon, a rolling pin, and eggshells on a slate background

Get ready for Soggy Bottoms’ first fail! If you asked me yesterday why I picked a creme caramel for my next bake, I could not tell you. My life has been a fever dream of exhaustion, books, period cramps, and shitty family stuff. I think I assumed this would be “easy” and I’m sure it helped that I already had most of the ingredients in my kitchen. I didn’t have to buy Golden Syrup from … Continue reading Soggy Bottoms: The Ten Thousand Creme Caramels of January

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

The Ten Thousand Doors of January

The Ten Thousand Doors of January is a wonderfully magical portal fantasy novel that will appeal to just about any book lover. It’s slow, winding, and subtle, brimming with some of the most gorgeous writing I’ve ever read. Unfortunately, the plot doesn’t lend itself to tense action or momentum, making this a much quieter adventure and not quite what I was looking for after coming off the bloody, excitable events of The Blacksmith Queen by … Continue reading The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E.
