Why did I wait so long to read this?! I guess I thought I wouldn’t like it – it had some mixed reviews, and recently I’ve seen mostly bad ones, so I started questioning whether it would be a me book or not. But it totally was! I love how strange and haunting this book was – it’s definitely a darker fantasy. It pushed the boundaries of magical realism, without being annoying and full of wtfery like the genre usually is […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Predict Will Be 5 Stars

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Predict Will Be 5 Stars
Posted by Jessi (Geo) on February 4, 2020 | 4 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl I actually did some 5 star predictions on my 5 Star Books of 2019 post! I’ve already read Raybearer, which came close with 4.5 stars; I’ve also read Goddess in the Machine and Seven Deadly Shadows, and they were in fact NOT 5 stars, whomp whomp. Like I said on that post, predicting 5 star reads for me is super hard because I can never tell whether I’m going to love […]

You are made of dreams and this world is not for you. Okay, so I loved the Raven Boys series, and Ronan was my FAVORITE character out of the whole series. So imagine my elation when I found out that he had his own series coming out!!!!! I was kinda worried going in that this wouldn’t amount to the very tall pedestal of hype that I had raised it on in my head, but IT DID. OH, it did. RONAN […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Gorgeous Covers With Equally Gorgeous Stories Inside
Posted by Jessi (Geo) on January 28, 2020 | 4 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl We all know the feeling of being tricked by a gorgeous cover. You crack the book open only to find that the story inside does not match the outside. False advertisement much?! But every once in a while, you discover one that actually lives up to the stunning cover because it’s just as beautiful on the inside as it is out! Apparently I like purple or dark covers lmao. All of […]

Fear is part of life; all that matters is what we do with it. Murderous mermaids, sea monsters, and swashbuckling, oh my! This book was pitched as Caraval meets Throne of Glass, but it was literally nothing like them other than having magic in my opinion. It felt a lot like To Kill a Kingdom to me! I loved the magic system! And also the backstory. The lies and mystery and secrets connected to the kingdom and its magic were […]
