Books I Wish I’d DNFed

Books I Wish I’d DNFed

I held out hope that they’d get better (probably due to the hype, or […]

ARC Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

ARC Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

This is what a Beauty and the Beast retelling should be (side eyeing you, ACOTAR), and exactly what I want out of one! I recently read Hunted by Meagan Spooner and it gave me similar vibes, however this one was done a bit better (and definitely has a Beauty that is 10000% better). The characters!!!! Ugh I love them so much! I think that was my favorite part. They were all perfect because they were perfectly flawed. I freaking L O V […]

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I had actually attempted to pick up this book physically a while back, and wasn’t feeling it. The beginning is SO boring. But I’m so glad I tried again, and the audio was fantastic! I am trash for anything Beauty and the Beast, and this was an awesome retelling! All the feels! She reminds us of what we could be. I freaking LOVED beast’s parts!!! The narrator was AMAZING. Also, the fact that the Beast refers to himself as “we” was […]
