I’m going to be honest, I let this review go for WAY too long. At this point I really don’t remember anything at all about the book. But, in my defense, it wasn’t all that memorable and didn’t stick with me to begin with. I had forgotten much of what I read within the first week. I didn’t enjoy it very much while I was reading, either. I didn’t care about any of the characters or anything that was happening, […]

“We hunted the flame together, found the light in the darkness, but we are far from done, laa? Now we unleash it. We free the stars, shatter the darkness holding us captive, and return the world to the splendor it once was.” What a beautiful ending to an amazing duology! If you haven’t read We Hunt the Flame yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. Hafsah’s storytelling is simply stunning! Lush and magical world, unique and fleshed out characters, action-packed plot. […]

Oh my goodness, I found an Urban Fantasy that I actually enjoyed! And that breaks out of the genre! I usually hate Urban Fantasy, because they all read exactly the same. For once I was pleasantly surprised! This one stands out and brought a fresh perspective to the table that I thoroughly enjoyed. First of all, SINDARI. Um, sentient magical tiger sidekick, YES PLEASE! Actually, he was the reason I picked this up in the first place. Ya’ll know I’m a […]

It was so great to dive back into the world of the Iron Fey! I love the magical setting so much, and I didn’t realize how much I’d missed it. It was also fantastic to see the characters again, and interesting to see how much had changed. From the outside looking in, Meghan and Ash seem to have almost god-like status – elevated and untouchable. It’s so vastly different to read about them as secondary characters instead of main ones. […]

Okay, so this book was pretty hit-or-miss for me. I didn’t like it in the beginning – the MC was royally pissing me off – then the middle was really good, but the ending got rocky again. The Faire was by far the best part and where this book shines. The nerd in me loved the setting, it made me miss Ren Faire! So, the beginning. I honestly hated Emily. She was petulant and childish, and sorry but she was fucking stupid. […]

This was basically a fantasy version of Westworld! I was actually skeptical about picking this one up when I first got it – I honestly hate the original cover and for some reason I just didn’t think I’d enjoy it. Then my lovely bookish friend Katie (@readerrewind) chose it for me for the 12 recs from 12 friends challenge on Instagram so I picked it up – and I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I would have finished this entire thing […]
