Norse Mythology || Book Tag



If you didn’t know, I love mythology. Greek especially, but I also enjoy Egyptian and Roman, as well as others. I’m not afraid to say that I know a considerable amount about Mythology. And that I really enjoy it!

But I gotta admit – I have never liked Norse Mythology. It’s so confusing, and something about it just never clicked with me. It is the one piece of information that I just can’t seem to hold on to


But I’m doing this anyway. Because I haven’t done a tag in a while, and my Raven Boys tag isn’t read yet. So…here we go!

Warcross || Book Review

Title: Warcross (#1)

Author: Marie Lu

Publisher: G.P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers

Genre: Sci-Fi, Thriller

Format: Hardcover


For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down Warcross players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty-hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. To make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

My Plain Jane | Cover Reveal

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to write this post: A) because I’m trying something new, and B) I love these authors! (Yes, I said authors. Plural.)

So if you didn’t know, last year Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows came out with a book called My Lady Jane. I adored My Lady Jane – it’s a retelling of the story of Lady Jane Grey, who was beheaded nine days after becoming Queen of England.

Except she isn’t beheaded in this story. And there are shapeshifters. And plenty of books. And – best of all – hilarious dialogue! I haven’t laughed so hard since reading Heroes of Olympus for the first time.


And now these authors – who call themselves The Lady Janies – are back with another Jane retelling! This time, they’re twisting the story of Jane Eyre. And no – you don’t need to read the original to read this one.

The title of this book is:

My Plain Jane


And now…we have a cover. Behold!

Fortnight of Fright | Graphic Novels for Halloween

Hello witches and wizards!

I’m Marrill, and I have a blog called Books and Ravens. And I’m so excited for my first Fortnight of Fright! Now, I’m sure all of you are seasoned readers, so forgive me if I mess up.


Anyway, I obviously love reading. And I adore everything spooky and creepy. But I don’t read many Halloween books. BUT I do love spooky graphic novels! The visuals are always so cool, and all the different ways ghosts can be drawn is fascinating. (Seriously though – there’s so many).

So I decided I wanted to talk about some of my favorite graphic novels to get you in the mood for October 31st!

Here are my recommendations for getting into the Halloween spirit:

Books I Brought on Vacation!

Hello Book Ravens!

I haven’t posted recently, and that’s because I’ve been on a road trip the past few days, and the only thing I have to write on is my little tablet and bluetooth keyboard.


Hello first-world problems.


But anyway! On vacation I must bring books…and I didn’t realize how many books I couldn’t bear to part with until I was packing my bag.*

*for the record, I was forced by my mother to part with some of the books in my bag…it killed me a little on the inside, but I left Before She Ignites at home. So there.


Here are the books I brought with me!
