Review: Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Review: Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

Wow, talk about disappointing. Honestly, this is probably one of the most disappointing books I’ve ever read in all my life. I love dragon stories. And the fastest way to ruin a dragon story is, gee, to NOT PUT ANY DRAGONS IN IT. Where were the dragons I was promised? WHERE?! (And I quote, from Jodi herself: “Lots and lots of dragons.” UTTER. BULLSHIT.) I mean, it had some dragons. But most of the dragon stuff was just talking about dragons. And […]

Review: Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett

Review: Onyx and Ivory by Mindee Arnett

What a fabulous high fantasy full of intrigue, secrets, and lies! The concept was awesome. There were magists that controlled/enforced magic and made spells, yet “wilder” magic was outlawed and punishable by death. I freaking LOVED the drakes! And Kate’s ability to control and speak to animals! Those were my absolute favorite parts. As soon as the nightdrakes were mentioned, I was hooked. I wanted to see more of them! And I was not disappointed! Kind of sad that they […]

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

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 […]

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!! I took Friday and Saturday off of work to go up. Aaron and I left early Friday morning to make the 6 hour drive. We arrived around 3 pm to our hotel and checked in – and the hotel was crazy nice! It was at Hilton – I didn’t […]

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 […]
