Review: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Review: Muse of Nightmares by Laini Taylor

Caution: Review contains spoilers for Strange the Dreamer! “Wishes don’t just come true. They’re only the target you paint around what you want. You still have to hit the bullseye yourself.” Holy CRAP this book was SO. BEAUTIFUL!!! I loved it just as much as the first one! And, of course, just like the first one this one is tragic and heartbreaking. But GLORIOUS. I loved every second! Laini’s writing is gorgeous and just draws you in. Even when nothing […]

Review: Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry

Review: Heretics Anonymous by Katie Henry

“A heretic is someone who has belief, but not the right kind. At least according to the Catholic Church.” Full disclosure: I would NEVER have picked this book up on my own, ever in a million years. I don’t read contemporary much to begin with, and even though the cover is interesting for a contemp, the fact that it sounds religious would probably have deterred me. But, Harper sent the book to me, and I was in the mood for […]

ARC Review: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (Inuyasha in book form)

ARC Review: Shadow of the Fox by Julie Kagawa (Inuyasha in book form)

The dragon is rising. Three things Jessi loves: Japanese culture Julie Kagawa Inuyasha I knew I would love this book before I ever picked it up, because 1) Julie is my second favorite author of all time, and 2) I LOOOVE Japanese culture. There are not enough Japanese books in YA! In fact, the only other one I know of off the top of my head is my fave series, The Lotus Wars (by Jay Kristoff who happens to be […]

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Review: Even the Darkest Stars by Heather Fawcett

Even the darkest stars shone here, so far from the earth. I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. I hadn’t heard much about it, but a lot of my bookish friends loved it. I think going in with little expectations and little knowledge of what the book was about worked in my favor, because I really enjoyed it!! The main complaint I have about this book is that it is really slow. Not much happens other […]

ARC Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

ARC Review: Wildcard by Marie Lu

It was so awesome to return to this imaginative virtual world! The world of the NeuroLink is my absolute favorite part of this series. It’s so cinematic! I also LOVE the setting because it’s in Japan! Honestly the whole concept of mind control through the form of a virtual reality is terrifying, because everything in this book seems viable. It feels realistic, like it could actually happen someday. I really liked the catharsis in this book. I can’t say much […]

Review: Rule by Ellen Goodlett

Review: Rule by Ellen Goodlett

To be honest, I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would! It was one of those books where you enjoy it while reading but it doesn’t necessarily stick with you or leave a lasting impression. It’s definitely not a memorable book, and sadly it was kind of generic. I really, really hate switching POVs in pretty much any book. Two is bad enough, but three is even worse!! It makes it so hard to connect to anyone, and usually it’s […]
