Mini Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Mini Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Confession: I read this a year ago and I’m just now getting around to reviewing it. Oopsie. It’s been so long that I’d forgotten most of what happened, so I had to read a recap. I enjoyed it for the most part! I loved the concept of Caraval, and the carnival itself was fun and twisted. It had a very strange and magical quality to it! I liked that you never knew what was real or not, or who to […]

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Review: An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson

Why do we desire, above all other things, that which has the greatest power to destroy us? A little backstory first: I am SUPER picky about fae books. In fact, there’s only two I can think of that I’ve genuinely enjoyed: The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa and the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Before this book came out, the hype was unreal. I was DYING to get my hands on it, and the ARC reviews were positively glowing. […]

Books I Didn’t Finish in 2017

Books I Didn’t Finish in 2017

I had a terrible year in reading! I was in a massive reading slump for months on end, and during those months I picked up countless books and couldn’t get into anything. I was going through 4-5 books before I found something I could stick to. On the bright side, I rated books much higher because I DNFed the ones I wasn’t enjoying. I may have only read 20 books, but out of those only 3 of them were under 4 […]

Review: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

Donated by an anonymous benefactor, for all the crooked saints. I had been looking forward to this book ALL. YEAR. I was sure I’d love it because it sounded so interesting, but I was also worried for two reasons: The hype. I tend to be the black sheep on over-hyped books Maggie’s writing is very hit-or-miss for me. I loved the Raven Boys and Scorpio Races, and Shiver was okay, but I didn’t like the 2nd or 3rd Wolves of Mercy […]

Review: A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber

Review: A Beautiful Friendship by David Weber

Just like the title says, this story was a BEAUTIFUL. FRIENDSHIP. If you want a story about a beautiful, unconditional, powerful bond between a cat and a person, this story is for you ;) I freaking LOVED the treecats!!! They were 10000% of why I loved this book so much. I freaking LOVED Climbs Quickly/Lionheart!! Oh my lawd I loved him. *cries* Loveloveloveloooove (how many times can I say love without sounding redundant? But I can’t help it, IT’S TRUE OKAY.) […]

Review: Warcross by Marie Lu

Review: Warcross by Marie Lu

“Everything’s science fiction until someone makes it science fact.” For once, a book that lives up to its hype! I was on the fence about this one, because a) honestly the cover is awful (but it is growing on me), b) I tend to be the black sheep on super hyped books, and c) Marie Lu’s books are hit or miss for me (Legend was great but the finale fell short, Young Elites was amazing but I didn’t like the second […]
