ARC Review: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (Inuyasha in book form)

The dragon is rising. Three things Jessi loves: Japanese culture Julie Kagawa Inuyasha I knew I would love this book before I ever picked it up, because 1) Julie is my second favorite author of all time, and 2) I LOOOVE Japanese culture. There are not enough Japanese books in YA! In fact, the only other one I know of off the top of my head is my fave series, The Lotus Wars (by Jay Kristoff who happens to be […]

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Even the darkest stars shone here, so far from the earth. I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. I hadn’t heard much about it, but a lot of my bookish friends loved it. I think going in with little expectations and little knowledge of what the book was about worked in my favor, because I really enjoyed it!! The main complaint I have about this book is that it is really slow. Not much happens other […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gems

Top Ten Tuesday: Hidden Gems

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl     The Lotus War – With the popularity that all of Jay’s other books have garnered, it absolutely BLOWS MY MIND that basically no one knows about this series. And breaks my heart, because it’s my all time fave!! I bookpush the shit out of this series on Instagram because it doesn’t get enough love! (Also it doesn’t help that Jay NEVER TALKS ABOUT IT) Zero Repeat Forever – […]

ARC Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

ARC Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

It was so awesome to return to this imaginative virtual world! The world of the NeuroLink is my absolute favorite part of this series. It’s so cinematic! I also LOVE the setting because it’s in Japan! Honestly the whole concept of mind control through the form of a virtual reality is terrifying, because everything in this book seems viable. It feels realistic, like it could actually happen someday. I really liked the catharsis in this book. I can’t say much […]

Review: Rule by Ellen Goodlett

Review: Rule by Ellen Goodlett

To be honest, I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would! It was one of those books where you enjoy it while reading but it doesn’t necessarily stick with you or leave a lasting impression. It’s definitely not a memorable book, and sadly it was kind of generic. I really, really hate switching POVs in pretty much any book. Two is bad enough, but three is even worse!! It makes it so hard to connect to anyone, and usually it’s […]

Top Ten Tuesday: Bingeworthy TV Shows

Top Ten Tuesday: Bingeworthy TV Shows

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl 1. Dexter Dexter is and always will be my all time favorite tv show. It is BRILLIANTLY written and nothing could ever fill such big shoes! It gets so intense in the last few seasons! And SO. BRUTAL. Don’t ship anyone, don’t get attached to anyone… (And um, that ending?!?!) I’ve watched it several times all the way through! 2. Game of Thrones I was a super latecomer to this show. […]
