Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

Audiobook Review: Aurora Rising by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman

They’re not the heroes we deserve. They’re just the ones we could find. Nobody panic. SQUAD GOALS!! I loved this band of misfits so much! I adored every single one of the characters, and they each had their own distinct personalities. Switching POVs doesn’t usually work for me, but it did in this book! You get to see seven different points of view, which sounds intimidating but it really works here. It gives you a feel for each of the […]

ARC Review: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

ARC Review: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

I will show him what a woman can do. In the beginning, I was enjoying it but I wasn’t engrossed. The writing was positively stunning, and I was intrigued by the world, but it wasn’t grabbing me for some reason (I blame this stupid reading slump that won’t go away). It wasn’t until Benyamin and Kifah showed up that I realized that was hopelessly hooked. Talk about squad goals!!! I freaking LOVED the banter and camaraderie that the gang – […]

Review: Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Review: Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon

Upon finishing this book, the main emotion I felt was relief. It seriously took me thirty days to finish this book, you guys. THIRTY. DAYS. I can’t think of any other book that I’ve ever spent more than a couple of weeks on that I didn’t DNF (or hate, it did take me three months to finish Brisingr and it was AWFUL).  Me after finishing: It fucking felt like 84 years anyway XD Honestly, this book was way, WAY too long. Waaaaaay too […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Things That Make Me Pick Up a Book

Top Ten Tuesday: Things That Make Me Pick Up a Book

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl This week’s topic is things that make me pick up a book! Here are things I look for: A gorgeous cover. Let’s face it, I’m a shallow creature. If the cover is pretty enough it doesn’t even need a synopsis. Fave genres. If the book is one of my preferred genres, I’m definitely adding it to my TBR list at the very least. High fantasy and sci-fi are my faves, but I’m […]
