A princess must have her prince. This book was so delightfully twisted! I loved the dark concept of the sirens and their tradition of taking human hearts for every year of their life – literally. Like I said, twisted! It was basically a dark retelling of The Little Mermaid – the original one, by Hans Christian Andersen. Definitely no Disney here, folks. Lira was fierce AF! She took only prince’s hearts, thus her moniker was Princes’ Bane. Bad. Ass!! She had a great […]

Every single one of these books is a sequel to a book that I rated 4 stars. I enjoyed them at the time of reading, but I remember next to nothing about any of those books and I have no desire left to continue any of these series. Do you have any books like that? Where as time passes, you lose interest in them?
I’ll always come back for you. I promise you on iron and stars. This book started off horribly slow, but did get more interesting as it went on. It was good for a debut. It was also an interesting mix of sci-fi and high fantasy – while it felt very strongly like a sci-fi, the setting was HF. My main complaint is that this book was horribly, painfully predictable. It also felt rather generic. It’s a retelling of Anastasia, which […]
I am a HUGE sucker for strong non-romantic relationships in books! My favorite of course is a bond between a human and (sentient) animal, but I really love when a guy/girl friendship is super strong and 100% platonic. It’s almost guaranteed these days that any male introduced to a female protag (or vice/versa) is going to be a love interest. GUYS AND GIRLS CAN BE JUST FRIENDS, PEOPLE. I’ve also included a guy/guy bromance and a girl/girl womance because I […]
Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl I am a notorious procrastinator and the same can be said about my intentions to pick up books. If I don’t read them as a new release, they tend to sit around for months (years? Oops) and I just keep putting them off and putting them off. I SUCK. Sooo here are my top ten books I’ve had on my TBR the longest and still haven’t read: Most of these […]
Finally, a dragon story that I loved!! So far the only other book about dragons I’ve truly enjoyed was Julie Kagawa’s Talon saga. It seems like I sign up for dragons and then there aren’t any. But this one was incredible! I mean, DRAGONS. But there were actually dragons. Unlike most books that promise dragons and you only get a glimpse, the dragons were a main factor in this story! I absolutely LOVED the idea of the Namsara and Iskari, it was […]
