Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Re-read Forever

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Could Re-read Forever

Okay, so I kind of cheated here because there’s actually 11 books. But I went for my top three series! The Wayfarer Redemption This series is very special to me for a lot of reasons. It was my first for a lot of things – first long series, first High Fantasy, first foray into the world of books with steamy scenes, and also my first favorites. It’s very nostalgic to me! I’ve read the first 3 books (the original trilogy) […]

Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Review: The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

Do you ever have those times where you go into a book knowing full well you wouldn’t like it? Yeah, this was one of those for me. Why the hell did you read it, then? some of you may be asking. Well, there’s this annoying thing called the Hype Monster. And I let that little turd get the best of my curiosity. Things I liked: How brutal, dark, and bloody it was The lies and betrayal The not-relationship between Cardan and Jude […]

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

Review: To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

A princess must have her prince. This book was so delightfully twisted! I loved the dark concept of the sirens and their tradition of taking human hearts for every year of their life – literally. Like I said, twisted! It was basically a dark retelling of The Little Mermaid – the original one, by Hans Christian Andersen. Definitely no Disney here, folks. Lira was fierce AF! She took only prince’s hearts, thus her moniker was Princes’ Bane. Bad. Ass!! She had a great […]

Review: Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

Review: Heart of Iron by Ashley Poston

I’ll always come back for you. I promise you on iron and stars. This book started off horribly slow, but did get more interesting as it went on. It was good for a debut. It was also an interesting mix of sci-fi and high fantasy – while it felt very strongly like a sci-fi, the setting was HF. My main complaint is that this book was horribly, painfully predictable. It also felt rather generic. It’s a retelling of Anastasia, which […]

Top Ten Tuesday [Freebie]: Best Platonic Relationships (Because I Hate Romance)

Top Ten Tuesday [Freebie]: Best Platonic Relationships (Because I Hate Romance)

I am a HUGE sucker for strong non-romantic relationships in books! My favorite of course is a bond between a human and (sentient) animal, but I really love when a guy/girl friendship is super strong and 100% platonic. It’s almost guaranteed these days that any male introduced to a female protag (or vice/versa) is going to be a love interest. GUYS AND GIRLS CAN BE JUST FRIENDS, PEOPLE. I’ve also included a guy/guy bromance and a girl/girl womance because I […]
