ARC Review: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd

ARC Review: Grim Lovelies by Megan Shepherd

My poor dears. My grim little lovelies. I have pretty mixed feelings about this book. The main emotion that I feel after reading? Disappointment. This was one of my most anticipated 2018 releases, and I expected it to be amazing. Sadly, it wasn’t. Don’t get me wrong, it was still good – just…not great. The concept and world were the gems of this novel. The whole world of magic and the idea of the beasties was incredible!! Honestly this book […]

Review: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

Review: Smoke in the Sun by Renee Ahdieh

“Ours is a love stronger than fear and deeper than the sea.” Soo this makes me really sad to say but this story was really boring for most of the book?? *cries* Looking back I really can’t tell you what actually happened because NOTHING HAPPENED. After Flame in the Mist I expected much, much more. Not to say that I didn’t like it – I did still enjoy it for the most part because Renee’s writing is lovely, and I […]
