Bitsy's Books

Note: I'm uploading my books from Goodreads and since there are like 200+ it's going to take awhile. The uploading seems a bit wonky too, so hang with me as I fix things. Also there may be spoilers until I can make all the appropriate tags.


I'm an ex-English Major who, sick of reading classics after college, decided to read all the trashy books I didn't before because I was too snobby. Since graduating, I've entertained myself with comics, YA, and romance novels, finding out they can not only be decently written, but superbly written. I've since recovered from my classics aversion, but I'm now more open-minded reader willing to read from any genre. If a book has kick-ass heroines and/or witty banter and/or takes place in a different time or place (including fantasy settings), I will most likely fall in love with it. My favorite authors are Jane Austen, Shakespeare, E.M. Forster, Meljean Brook, Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Hartman, Catherynne M. Valente, and Aliette de Bodard.

The Spring Before I Met You (The Lynburn Legacy, #0.25) - Sarah Rees Brennan 4 out of 5 StarsA short prelude before Unspoken. While there is no new information about the characters or story, it does give a little insight into Jared's life before moving to Sorry-in-the-Vale and meeting Kami. Brennan still manages pack a heart-wrenching punch in a 14 page story (and the synopsis of "The Fall of the House of Usher" is brilliant).Not sure if I would recommend reading this before Unspoken. Gives away a bit of the mystery of Jared's character.
