Book Review: Iron Gold by Pierce Brown

I am a big fan of the Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. In fact, the audiobooks of Red Rising, narrated so fantastically by Tim Gerard Reynolds, are what sparked my love of audiobooks.

This Week in Reading: Southern Gothic, How-To Feed Your Hero, Young Nobles With a Touch of Fey, and Witchery

This week I'm finishing up two books from last week before starting a couple of new ones. I'm about twenty percent through What Kings Ate and Wizards Drank by Krista D. Ball.

This Week in Reading: New Adventures in Old Rebellions and Fantastic Obstacle Courses

This week I'm listening to Iron Gold by Pierce Brown, the next trilogy in the Red Rising universe. I was really excited to dive into this one because I absolutely love the Red Rising books, and they're the first audiobooks that made me feel like, yeah, I can listen to audiobooks without my mind wandering...

Book Review: Ink, Iron, and Glass by Gwendolyn Clare

Full disclosure: I ended up with an ARC copy of this in my book pile back in September while attending the Baltimore Book Festival. Since the book is being released later this month I thought it was a good time to dive in. Ink, Iron, and Glass takes place in an alternate version of the... Continue Reading →
