Hey Epic Geeks,

Can you believe the first month of 2018 is over? I can’t. This month has been crazy. You can find out why and what’s to come in my recent life update. Otherwise, last week I did my first author interview with debut author Samantha Heuwagen! In January, I finished four books. Not a ton, but whatever! It’s been busy.

UPDATE: It’s now March and I, for some reason, still haven’t finished this post up. It’s now a January and February Wrap Up. Enjoy!


A Conjuring Of Light

The first book I finished in January was A Conjuring of Light by V. E. Schwab. A Conjuring of Light is the third book in the Darker Shades of Magic series. V. E. Schwab did it again. She is a queen. Just yes. I love this series so much. Five out of five. Please, please go read it, now.


Grave Dance

Grave Dance is book 2 to the Alex Craft Series by Kalayna Price. I definitely got sucked into this urban fantasy series. If you like magic, witches, ghosts, and murder mysteries, check it out!


Grave Memory


Grave Memory is book 3 to the Alex Craft Series by Kalayna Price. Only have book 4 left!


Milk and Honey

In January, I saw someone had sent me a copy of Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. I have no idea who since it was on my Kindle, but I digress. I knew Milk and Honey was really popular and was a collection of poetry. What I didn’t realize was the content in the book. There are four sections: the hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing. Please, please be cautious if you are triggered easily. There is abuse, sexual abuse, and so much more, especially in the first section; hurting.

I’m giving out five stars much less frequently, so please realize that me pinning five gold stars on this is major. This collection was impactful and so worth it on so many levels.


Norse Mythology

In February, I only finished one book … on the last day. That lovely book was Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. I loved his interpretations of the myths and quite frankly, I love his voice.  I was having a really bad/down day and he made me smile! It’s always so soothing and he’s a great storyteller (and always narrates his own books). I definitely recommend his books in audiobook format.


That’s all I have for you today. I’m hoping to finish up Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo and Opal by Maggie Stiefvater in March!

What did you read in January and February?

What’s on your TBR for March?

In the meantime, keep calm and stay epic
