Horror October 2016 Sign Ups

Horror October 2016 Sign Ups

Okay, so I used to participate in Horror October hosted by Leanne @ Literary Excursion, then when she moved to Oh, the Books! and they group hosted it. I missed out on doing anything at all for October last year, and that makes me very sad indeed! Oh, the Books! is no longer hosting Horror October, which also makes me sad. The only thing I can find similar is A Fortnight of Fright, hosted by Book Addicts Guide, Books Take […]

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Patience and Silence had one beautiful daughter. And her name was Vengeance. Oh my god, where do I even start?! I honestly don’t think anything I could say about this book could ever actually do it justice. Illuminae was absolutely epic. I daresay that Gemina was even better! (HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!) Like I said in my review of Illuminae, I’ve never read anything like this series. If you didn’t already know, it’s told in a series of hacked documents – […]

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Review: Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson

Just like with the first book, I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. As I stated in my review of Walk on Earth a Stranger, I went into the series expecting a historical fantasy. This book is NOT fantasy. The only thing fantasy about this series is Leah’s ability to witch gold. This series is hardcore Historical Fiction, set during the gold rush. I think it’s the latter part that makes it interesting to me. It’s no secret […]

Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

Review: The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis

I am vengeance. I loved Not a Drop to Drink, so I was expecting to like this book even though it’s outside of my genre comfort zone. But I wasn’t expecting for it to blow me away! This book is so raw and realistic. There’s something about Mindy’s writing that perfectly captures the characters and coveys the story. But more than that, this book is pretty heavy. It’s very honest about what it’s like to be a teenager in a way that most […]
