Review: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

Review: The Darkest Legacy by Alexandra Bracken

“We’ve inherited the darkest legacy, but they don’t know that we’ve learned how to thrive in shadows and create our own light.” The Darkest Minds trilogy is one of my all time favorite series, so I was thrilled to see Alexandra bringing some of my all time fave characters back for another round! I was excited to read through Zu’s perspective, I loved her in the originals. And it was positively wonderful to step back into the thrilling and cinematic world […]

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

Review: Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

The die is cast. But today we will shake the table upon which it lands. Okay, I have been putting off this review for far too long… *hides face* To be completely honest, in comparison to the other two books, I was underwhelmed. IT KILLS ME TO ADMIT THAT. I mean, don’t get me wrong – I still loved it!! Of course I still loved it. But the first half was slooow in a way that the first two never […]

Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Review: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Anthology

Three words for you: Asian. Folklore. Reimagined. If that doesn’t catch your attention, I don’t know what will! I loved the culture, mythology, and folklore in this one! It was amazing to see different mythology from different cultures in Asia, and I also loved hearing where each author drew their inspiration from. The stories were very hit or miss for me, but the few really amazing ones definitely made it worth the read! Favorite stories: Eyes Like Candlelight by Julie […]

Review: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

Review: Reign the Earth by A.C. Gaughen

BEWARE: This book includes heavy elements such as physical and emotional abuse, non-consentual sex in an arranged marriage (basically, rape), and To touch upon the topic of abuse: I feel Gaughen handled it very well. It was never romanticized – in fact, our main character didn’t let it happen or pretend it didn’t happen. She stood up against it the best she could – knowing that she couldn’t really do anything because she was basically trapped – and verbalized against it. […]

Review: Iron Gold by Pierce Brown

Review: Iron Gold by Pierce Brown

Death begets death begets death. It’s going to take some time for me to mull this over…I’ll try to get my thoughts into coherent sentences haha! It seriously took me nearly two months to get through this – mostly because I read it as a buddy read and our page goal was 50 pages a day and even then we kept running behind. And I got busy. But also because it takes SO FREAKING LONG to read. It takes me […]
