I love Henry James’ short story The Turn of the Screw, but I’ve never read any of James’ full length novels. Crossing my fingers that it’s double the awesome! (Yes, I can be corny)


ARCs, ARCs, and more ARCs

Due to poor planning I’m buried in ARCs for the next couple of months. After I get through this backlog of NetGalley reviews, I’m going to focus in on just the books I really feel compelled to write about. I don’t want to burnout like I did in the summer. I love writing, and I don’t want it to become a chore.

I guess when I started reading more, double the amount from last year, I felt the need to review AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.



Need to work on that…

Oh! Also, I didn’t forget about the movie rundown, it was just a terrible idea to start it in the wasteland of August. September looks more promising with IT, Mother!, and Battle of the Sexes.

Happy Readings,

Tasheena Rose

  1. It looks like you had quite a good reading month! Several of the books you read this month are books I have on my TBR. I’m especially excited about Dear Martin – I canNOT wait for it to release so I can get my hands on it. I’m so glad to see you enjoyed it. I hope you have a great September!! 🙂
