Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

Review: Toil & Trouble Anthology

The stories in this one were extremely hit or miss for me. While there were a few I loved, there were also a lot I didn’t love. I did enjoy the culture and diversity in this one, though! These stories feature a myriad of POC and LGBTQ+ characters. I also quite loved the girl power that this book had going for it! Favorite stories: Daughters of Baba Yaga by Brenna Yovanoff, Why They Watch Us Burn by Elizabeth May, Death […]

Review: Contagion by Erin Bowman

Review: Contagion by Erin Bowman

It’s been a while since I read this, so this will be a short review. But I really enjoyed it! This one was SUPER creepy, I loved that about it! It had a very strong Alien meets Pitch Black feel to it (which basically means it was awesome). It was incredibly fast paced and cinematic! I loved the mystery to it in the beginning – you don’t know much about what’s going on, and it keeps you interested. This would make […]

ARC Review: Mirage by Somaiya Daud

ARC Review: Mirage by Somaiya Daud

While this one fell flat for me, I strongly believe that this is going to be a favorite for a lot of readers, and a hit fantasy of 2018! The world was beautiful, but the places were really overwhelming for me to keep up with. There was no map (there will be in final copy – something that sucks about reading ARCs) so I had trouble sorting all the places out. I also didn’t understand the conflict between the different […]

Review: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

Review: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

“We’ve inherited the darkest legacy, but they don’t know that we’ve learned how to thrive in shadows and create our own light.” The Darkest Minds trilogy is one of my all time favorite series, so I was thrilled to see Alexandra bringing some of my all time fave characters back for another round! I was excited to read through Zu’s perspective, I loved her in the originals. And it was positively wonderful to step back into the thrilling and cinematic world […]
