I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as I enjoyed The Hazel Wood, but I still loved stepping back into the dark and twisted world! I felt like this one was lacking in action, but thankfully it didn’t really lose my interest. Melissa’s prose is lyrical and draws you in, so that you want to continue even when there’s nothing happening. I’m not sure how I felt about the introduction of new characters. I liked Sophia well enough, but […]

We are daughters of the wood. It’s hard to review this one, because I loved the concept but I felt quite indifferent about it in general. I was excited to read it because I loved The Wicked Deep, but this one fell short. My main issue was complete apathy. I didn’t care about what was happening, I didn’t care about the characters, nothing. The magic and mystery were intriguing, though, and that’s what kept me going. I saw a few people […]

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl Today’s topic is a romance freebie, and I totally almost called this post “Romances That My Picky Ass Actually Enjoyed” but it seemed inappropriate for the actual title lmao. BUT IT’S TRUE! Ya’ll should know by now that I pretty much hate romance. I rarely ever enjoy it, as it typically has to be done a certain way for me to get onboard. Enemies to lovers MY FAVORITE TROPE IN THE […]

I absolutely LOVED this origin story of how the crazy yet endearing AIDAN that we know was born! It’s kinda creepy, because you can see where he’s coming from even as he makes horrific choices. He always has the best interest of the fleet in mind, but is murder justifiable for survival? It brings into question humanity, and the morality of weighing one life against many, or even one deemed more valuable. Chilling! Even though this was only 82 pages, […]

Why did I wait so long to read this?! I guess I thought I wouldn’t like it – it had some mixed reviews, and recently I’ve seen mostly bad ones, so I started questioning whether it would be a me book or not. But it totally was! I love how strange and haunting this book was – it’s definitely a darker fantasy. It pushed the boundaries of magical realism, without being annoying and full of wtfery like the genre usually is […]
