The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

“Maybe there isn’t such a thing as fate. Maybe it’s just the opportunities we’re given, and what we do with them. I’m beginning to think that maybe great, epic romances don’t just happen. We have to make them ourselves.”

A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab

“I'd rather die on an adventure than live standing still.”

Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson

“Somehow, we'll find it. The balance between whom we wish to be and whom we need to be. But for now, we simply have to be satisfied with who we are.”

Aristotle & Dante Discover The Secrets of The Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

“I bet you could sometimes find all the mysteries of the universe in someone's hand.”

Turtles All The Way Down by John Green

"Anybody can look at you. It's quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.”

The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

“Etiquette tip: If you're looking for the right time to leave a party, when the host yells, "No one leaves here alive," that's your cue.”

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

“Some of the best demigods have gotten their start by blowing up toilets.

Rhythm of War by Brandon Sanderson

“This is life, and I will not lie by saying every day will be sunshine. But there will be sunshine again, and that is a very different thing to say. That is truth.”

About Me

Mariah Rose

I'm Mariah (she/her), I'm a 28 year old lawyer born, raised and living in Brazil.

I'm a voracious reader, compulsive list maker, spreadsheet fiend and stationery hoarder. I like clicky keyboards and cute things, and I'm very likely drinking coffee or petting a dog as you're reading this.


1 year to the day since I took my first tentative steps into the Cosmere ✨ after 4 months, 12 novels, 9 assorted short stories and novellas & 3 graphic novels I was sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this would be the greatest Epic Fantasy series I would ever read in my lifetime - even if it is still ongoing. Having had even more time since to sit with these stories, I’m only more sure of that fact. 
The Foreword by Dan Wells and the Postscript included in the 10th anniversary edition of Elantris absolutely fascinate me - I love hearing about where authors get their inspiration and their journey.
I’m getting to that stage where I can no longer put off rereading this series. The more I think about it the more I keep making connections I wasn’t able to the first time around and that’s what has always captivated me in Epic Fantasy, that grander feeling of connectedness and wonder.
Have you read any of the works that make up the Cosmere?

🔥Flash Fire by T J Klune
Happy release to this absolute gem!
The first book in this series was jam packed with laughs & surprises and the sequel certainly did not disappoint.
Nicky has found a special place in my heart forever, and I can’t put into words the joy it brings me to read a story about a queer neurodiverse kid becoming his own kind of hero.
Thank you to @netgalley @torteen & @tjklunebooks for the opportunity to read and review this firecracker.

🐺 pack pack pack 🌘
It’s been a pretty atypical week Chez ReadIt, as I’ve been struck down with an ear infection from hell. I’ve been trying to make the most of it, enjoying time home with the pups and hanging out with some of my favorite characters.
Joe & Ox from #Wolfsong were the last if the custom Funko Pops I commissioned, and I have to confess I’m looking forward to ordering the entire (goddamn) Bennett pack - including Jessie and her shotgun 😂 
QOTD: if you were to get a custom Funko Pop, what character(s) would you get?

🚋🚋🚋 ONE. LAST. STOP. 🚋🚋🚋
I sat down before I started this and had a little chat with myself. I told myself #RedWhiteAndRoyalBlue was a lightning strike. A unique planetary alignment, a perfect storm, and once in a lifetime thing. I told myself not to expect that feeling again, 'cause it wasn’t fair to CMQ, to this book, or to me. I swear I did. But damn. I guess lightning can strike twice.
I woke up with a jolt at 4am, wide awake and the only thought running through my mind was “ ‘One Last Stop’ is sitting on my Kindle right now and I’m sleeping???” 8 hours later and here we are 😂

Happy release day to #MisterImpossible 🥳
Separately, Ronan Lynch and Adam Parrish are two of the most unique characters I’ve encountered. Don’t even get me started on how I feel about them together, because you’ll likely never hear the end of it.
I’ve been immersed in this book since last night and I have so many thoughts and (goddammit) even more feelings and I can’t wait until we can yell (aka type in all caps) at each other over this book.
I’ll see you guys on the other side. Squash One. 🤘🏻
