Audiobook Review: Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

Audiobook Review: Children of Blood & Bone by Tomi Adeyemi

We are all children of blood and bone. All instruments of vengeance and virtue. The first time I tried this book, I was reading it. I made it 254 pages into the ARC – which is right around halfway through – before I gave up. I was bored out of my mind, and other than the awesome premise (magic!!) and diverse setting/characters, it felt extremely generic. I couldn’t connect at all, and didn’t find the characters very inspiring. I kept […]

Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

Review: Sadie by Courtney Summers

Going into this book, I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did! This book surprised me in a good way! I absolutely loved the format. It’s told in alternating POVs – one being Sadie, the other being a podcast. It was SO cool!! And the way it was written keeps you interested and makes this book unputdownable! I gobbled it up in one single sitting, which is something I haven’t done in ages. […]

Review: This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson

Review: This Splintered Silence by Kayla Olson

I had such high hopes for this book, but sadly I was disappointed. It’s got great reviews, too, so looks like I was the black sheep yet again *shrugs* Mostly I was bored. The mystery of not knowing why people were dying kept me going, but I found the plot and the book overall to be very dull. The prose was choppy and awkward and I had trouble getting into it. We are given ZERO description whatsoever, so I had […]

Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

Review: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

For being erieso short, I found this one to be rather slow. I was super bored in the beginning, waiting for something to happen. The letters don’t come until quite a long way into the book. While I did enjoy the sense of family that Lara Jean had, I found I didn’t really care about the mundane happenings in her life that took up nearly half of the novel. This is why I don’t really care to read contemp very […]
