ARC Review: Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

ARC Review: Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

I loved the concept of Phoenix Riders!! The world was truly phenomenal – well thought out and painstakingly built. It felt real! I could tell Nicki put a lot of thought into it. It was excruciatingly detailed without annoying info dumps. The info was well placed and spread throughout the whole book, giving you an in depth understanding of the world without being overwhelming. Also, I LOVE stories where a girl dresses as a boy! Sadly, that was where most of […]

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

I’ve been putting off this book for EVER. And I was worried to pick it up because, let’s face it, the hype is unreal. I don’t read contemp very often, but I do usually like it well enough when I read it. And the same goes for this book. I enjoyed it for the most part, but it didn’t wow me and probably won’t leave a lasting impression. I do see why people love it so much. Cath is a hardcore fangirl […]

ARC Review: Ship of Smoke & Steel by Django Wexler

ARC Review: Ship of Smoke & Steel by Django Wexler

This book wasn’t even on my radar until I picked up a free ARC at YALLfest, and it sounded super intriguing so I thought I’d give it a go. I also thought for some reason it was an Asian fantasy (it is sooo not), so I was excited to read it. I hadn’t heard much about it, either, so I didn’t know what to expect. Sadly, I ended up being disappointed. The main issue I had was with our main […]

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

After reading Skyward, I immediately started seeking out other Sanderson books. This was one I had tried to read forever ago, couldn’t get into (probably a total mood thing, I’m such a mood reader), and have been meaning to try again forever! I’m glad I finally picked it up! I loved the concept of this one! The Epics and their powers were awesome, and I loved that the power basically corrupted them. There were no superheroes, only super-villains. I thought it […]

Books I Wish I’d DNFed

Books I Wish I’d DNFed

If you know me at all, you know I’m a ruthless DNFer. When I’m not enjoying a book, I rarely stick around for very long unless I have a reason to (usually hype, or a friend rec that I trust). I talked about the reasons that I DNF in this post! Here’s a few books that I miraculously didn’t DNF, despite not enjoying them at all. I held out hope that they’d get better (probably due to the hype, or […]
