Vicariously & Voraciously is a joint book reviewing blog contributed by Scrill and Rae. What began as a hobby blog in mid 2016, Scrill worked on focusing the blog in 2017 with the addition of Rae as a co-blogger. As of 2018, the blog has moved to it’s own domain and continues to review books in a fair and friendly manner.
Along with book reviews, other content includes tags, memes, and feature pieces that cover many bookish topics.
Authors, please check the review policy before submitting a request for us to read and review your book. Thank you!
Most of my reviews are for books, but I have recently picked up bullet journaling and have started incorporating featuring my bujo on a weekly basis.
I’m a sucker for YA & NA sci-fi/fantasy & romance novels. I like to laugh out loud to books and let my heart break and piece back together with the characters. When it comes to sci-fi/fantasy novels I expect to be swept away in a land that I can visualize and dream about.
For my reviews, I try my best to post around 2 weeks prior to books publication date. My reviews are posted on my blog, Goodreads as well as further linked on my Twitter account.
Unfortunately, due to my reading load I am not accepting ARC review requests. I may make an exception on a case by case basis depending on my book load and, frankly, my mood. Please contact me for any additional information.
I can be found on the following platforms:
I am a big fan of YA Fiction, Fantasy, some Sci-Fi, NA Fiction, and a contemporary here and there. I have wayyyy too many favorite authors to really categorize them as my top favs, but a few that I have really been enjoying here lately are Leigh Bardugo, Victoria Schwab, Jay Kristoff, Amie Kaufman, Pierce Brown, Laini Taylor, Marie Lu, Sarah J Maas, Stephanie Garber, and Maggie Stiefvater.
I am hoping to do some unboxings, maybe a how-to here or there on some book crafts, and whatever books that Scrill and I aren’t buddy reading (there aren’t many lol) I will be writing reviews. My rating system is pretty straight forward with one star being the lowest and five stars being the best. I am an emotional reader, so I generally won’t be too picky about the structure or technical parts of the book. I will however rate them based on how the book made me feel, and how much I personally enjoyed it!
