Due to a need to balance my hobby (book reviews & promotion) with my jobs (something that actually earns me money to buy food) I’ve made the difficult decision (I assure you as a book addict it was very difficult) to cut down on the time dedicated to this blog for 2020. In other words, I will not be posting lengthy reviews for every single book I read this year.
READERS: I will still update my Goodreads constantly so be sure to follow/friend me and never hesitate to send me your book recommendations!! ♥
AUTHORS: I am still open to review requests! Just send me an email through the contact form like usual and if I accept then I will post my review on Goodreads and Amazon (plus there’s the chance it will be featured in my Top 2020 Reads wrap-up posts). ♥
Thank you for understanding! I’ve dedicated 5 book-filled years to Pooled Ink and I truly hope that I can come back strong in 2021 (hopefully you won’t ditch me while my blog takes things slow for a bit haha)! For more on what to expect you can read my post here.

I’ve been lucky enough this year to read a great number of books so trying to choose only ten favorites was incredibly difficult, but at last here we are. The year 2019 has come to an end and to reflect briefly on those months that have passed I’ve come up with my traditional list of the top ten books I read & reviewed this year along with some honorable mentions Continue reading
In addition to my usual end-of-year/new-year’s posts of my Top Books Read and Top Anticipated Reads, I’d like to do a post that highlights some of my favorite self-published/indie author/indie pub. books that I’ve read this year. My blog is open to all submissions and this leads to quite the variety of reads (which I love!) and so this post will be a moment to promote and praise some of my Top 2019 Reads that you won’t find being pushed and flaunted in major bookstores. Hopefully something will catch your eye! Continue reading
Today I decided to share my latest acquirements: the collector’s editions for Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom (fantasy) as well as Sarah J. Maas’ books A Court of Thorns and Roses and Throne of Glass (fantasy). I don’t really have the money to splurge on multiple editions of books but I loved these stories so much and the editions looked so lovely that I had to go for it. Keep reading for more on the books, my reviews, and sneak peeks into the bonus content included in these editions! (Bonus: I’ve also included a look at Embers of Memory, the Throne of Glass card game!) Continue reading
