Review: The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

Review: The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli

Finally, a dragon story that I loved!! So far the only other book about dragons I’ve truly enjoyed was Julie Kagawa’s Talon saga. It seems like I sign up for dragons and then there aren’t any. But this one was incredible! I mean, DRAGONS. But there were actually dragons. Unlike most books that promise dragons and you only get a glimpse, the dragons were a main factor in this story! I absolutely LOVED the idea of the Namsara and Iskari,  it was […]

Audiobook Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

Audiobook Review: The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I don’t think Julie could write anything that I won’t love! This was my first ever Julie book, so it holds a special place in my heart. I read this for the first time years ago, when Iron Queen had just come out, read it again before The Iron Knight was released, so this time listening to audio is my 3rd time! It’s definitely an old favorite of mine. I love the world that Julie creates. I usually don’t care […]

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

Mini Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

It’s been a long time since I read Nyxia, so I don’t remember much of it. While it didn’t stick with me like I’d hoped, I did really enjoy it while I was reading! I love sci-fi, so this one was definitely a Jessi book. I loved the concept of the Nyxia itself, soooo awesome! I loved the idea of being able to control it and mold it into whatever you want with your mind. I definitely look forward to […]

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

Review: The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

“My star-touched queen. I would break the world to give you what you want.” To be honest, when I picked this up I had NO idea if I would like it. Actually, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t. But my girl Hope raved about it, so I picked it up anyway. And I ended up being pleasantly surprised! I really enjoyed it! This book really shone in the last half, after the pivotal moment of the book, especially once Kamala […]

Review: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

Review: Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh

The first chapter of this book hooked me! I knew as soon as I finished it that I would love the book. My attention waned a lot in the middle with the Black Clan’s camp, though. It started to feel kind of generic fantasy and I started losing interest. Thankfully it didn’t last long. Once certain things started happening, it grabbed me again and didn’t let go! And what an explosive ending!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the Japanese culture in this book!! […]
