Review: Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

Review: Fire & Heist by Sarah Beth Durst

It’s not arrogant to know who you are. It’s powerful. And I am powerful. Oh my gosh, this book was SO fun! I found Durst’s prose to be quirky and engaging – I laughed out loud more than once. I absolutely loved the concept, it was fantastic! MAGIC. HEISTS. WERE. DRAGONS. Yes, that’s right. Weredragons!! How awesome is that?! I also loved that they were thieves of gold and hoarders of treasure by nature. I absolutely loved the sense of […]

Mini Review: One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington

Mini Review: One Past Midnight by Jessica Shirvington

“I want to know that if I drift off to sleep by accident one day, I’ll wake up in the same place. I want to live each day once, the best that I can live it.” What an interesting concept!! This book was unlike anything I’ve ever read before! I loved the idea of it, and I couldn’t put it down. How terrible would it be to fall asleep at night and wake up as someone else the next day, […]

Audiobook Review: Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Audiobook Review: Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

We are all children of blood and bone. All instruments of vengeance and virtue. The first time I tried this book, I was reading it. I made it 254 pages into the ARC – which is right around halfway through – before I gave up. I was bored out of my mind, and other than the awesome premise (magic!!) and diverse setting/characters, it felt extremely generic. I couldn’t connect at all, and didn’t find the characters very inspiring. I kept […]

Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

Going into this book, I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did! This book surprised me in a good way! I absolutely loved the format. It’s told in alternating POVs – one being Sadie, the other being a podcast. It was SO cool!! And the way it was written keeps you interested and makes this book unputdownable! I gobbled it up in one single sitting, which is something I haven’t done in ages. […]
