I love how creepy and twisted this one was! There’s also a little mystery aspect to it, which keeps the pace moving nicely. I never knew what was going to happen next. I loved how atmospheric this book was, too. I read it for Horror October and it was the perfect vibe for Halloween! The Harrow house and the things that happened in it were super creepy! I wish I had connected to the characters better, though. I loved Bryony […]

I have no idea how to rate this because I still can’t decide if I loved it or hated it?? I vacillated pretty wildly back and forth at various points of the story. The beginning was rougghhhh. I almost DNFed this book because the first 20% is PAINFULLY, in-your-face high school. Almost like it was trying wayyy too hard to feel like high school. To the point that it was nauseating. It was shallow and juvenile, and I was starting to wonder […]

This book was so unique! I absolutely LOVED the atmospheric setting – Eulalie Island was fantastic! It’s creepy and unsettling and I never knew what was going to happen next. I adore dark and disturbing and this book definitely delivered on both points. The author brought the island to life in vivid detail! The descriptions made things so easy to picture without being too descriptive. Eulalie Island felt like a real place. This would make an awesome movie! I found a […]

I didn’t love this as much as I thought I was going to. I adored Squirrelflight’s Hope, even though I don’t usually care for side stories when I already know the outcome, so I was really hoping to love this one too. I mean, Firestar is an old fave and will always be special, so I was looking forward to being back in his head for a bit. And I did enjoy it, but it was extreeemely slow paced. Almost […]

Black sheep yet again. Womp womp. I’ll start with the things I liked first. The world was really unique and interesting – a bit weird, sure, but it was cool. I liked that it had second person point of view, and the twist was great. I appreciated how all of the points of view came together. But that’s where my enjoyment stopped. I couldn’t connect to the characters at all and I just didn’t care about anything that was happening. […]

Audiobook Review: Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko (was a disappointment)

It’s been a while since I was so grossly disappointed in a sequel. This book has severe second book syndrome. I loved Raybearer, but everything I loved about about it was missing from this book. In my review of Raybearer I praised the richly enchanting world – that it was vivid and and captivating, and that the culture saturated the story – and we got none that in this book. The core relationships of the first book are also missing. […]
