I reread my favorite series…and it was even better the second time!

Click covers for my original reviews! Holy cow, what an emotional rollercoaster! I was fully prepared to be overcome by feels jumping back in. The second time around I feel like I appreciated the secondary and supporting characters so much more. I barely remembered any of them the first time around because I was so obsessed with Buruu and Yukiko! I really enjoyed taking the time to focus on the finer points of this book. I really had time to […]

Obsidio Book Signing Recap

Last month I had the amazing opportunity to take a small road trip up to Chicago to attend the Anderson’s stop of the Obsidio tour and I had SO much fun!!

Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Review: Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young

Honor above life. This book is dark. Gritty. Violent. But it felt raw and realistic, and was heartbreakingly beautiful! What a kickass viking fantasy! I had zero problem picturing everything in my head as it was happening. Young’s stunning prose brought the world and characters to life. It was cinematic! The characters were compelling and real. The characterization of this book is phenomenal. Even the side characters were important. I found myself attached to each and every one of them! The sense of family […]

Review: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

Review: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

It took me two tries to get into this book. My first attempt I DNFed it within 25-30 pages, because the way Alosa regarded men grated on my nerves. The second time, I went in with low expectations and an open mind, promising myself to take it at face value and not look at it too closely. Honestly, the first half of this book is absolutely ridiculous. It was a constant back and forth of Alosa escaping and getting thrown […]
