Hi! I’m Cait, a twenty-something from the USA who lives in way too many fictional worlds to count. I haven’t been able to leave my house in several years due to severe complications from Lyme disease, so I started this blog in May 2016 as a way to connect with the outside world!

This blog is my thoughts on the books I read, author interviews, giveaways, bookish merch I’ve found, and general enthusiasm to help others with similar taste find something fun to read. I adore any story with a medieval feeling, magic, politics, complex characters, faeries, pretty scenery, ships, strong worldbuilding, and/or elements of a retelling. Here’s a list of some favorite books + pictures of my shelves!


I love hearing from other readers! You can find me on Goodreads, Tumblr, Instagram, and Twitter.

I’m not taking review requests at this time, but am always open to working with new companies! Contact me below for more info on my stats and previous collaborations I’ve done:


My Ratings:

  • 5 stars: LOVE. I want to shove this book at everyone I see
  • 4 stars: definitely enjoyed it
  • 3 stars: liked parts, but it could’ve been better overall
  • 2 stars: wouldn’t buy a copy for myself or recommend it
  • 1 star: did not appreciate wasting my time on this

Disclaimers: I reserve the right to not finish any book I don’t like. Sending me a book or product does not obligate me to do anything that was not stated in a contract or agreed upon prior to my receipt of the items. Not all reviews make it onto my blog. You can find the ratings for everything else I’ve read on my Goodreads. 

My reviews are just my honest opinions on whether or not I personally enjoyed a story. They’re not a final judgement on whether a book is “good” or “bad,” or any reflection on the author themselves. Paying me for a review is just paying for my time to bump your book up my TBR pile; it is not paying for an upgraded opinion. I will state when I received a book and/or compensation in exchange for an honest review.
