THIS BOOK IS NOT YA. It is labeled as such, but contains sexual and mature content. Oh, boy. How to review this?! I don’t even know how I feel about it to be honest. I actually think that I fall into the black sheep category on this book, but for once in a good way. I think I actually liked it. (I say ‘think’ because I’m rather freaking confused and my feelings are muddled and I think that speaks volumes.) First […]

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl Okay, so I cheated and chose all three Lotus War books because I can’t pick between them and also because they’re still my favorite over everything else. And apparently I love a lot of one word title series, so I picked my favorite book of the series! What are some of your favorite books with one word titles?

Hooboy *takes deep breath* This is not going to be pretty. Honestly, I should have just DNFed this book. The only reason I didn’t is because the world was intriguing and in the beginning I was really interested. But sadly, the farther I read, the worse it got. I’ll start with the positive: The concept was FANTASTIC. In the beginning, I was so onboard! It felt so much like Waterworld, which I love. The idea of a post-apocalyptic world of […]

The concept of this book is incredible! I really loved the unique magic system of “scrived” devices, it was unlike anything I’ve ever read before. That was what kept me going, because I felt totally apathetic about the story and characters. Sancia is everything an MC should be, on paper – badass, resilient, determined, and was a clear underdog (coming from a poor background living on the streets, fighting to survive). She should have been easy to root for, but […]

I’ve always half-assed organized my books with a combo of an Excel spreadsheet (which I admittedly haven’t updated in months), and Goodreads. Not a great system, honestly. But recently I saw someone in the Epic Reads group on Facebook mention Book Buddy, an app for organizing the books they own, so I downloaded the free demo. An hour later, I’d bought the full version! It’s amazing!! The demo only allows you to upload 50 books. The full version is $4.99, […]
