ARC Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

ARC Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

This is what a Beauty and the Beast retelling should be (side eyeing you, ACOTAR), and exactly what I want out of one! I recently read Hunted by Meagan Spooner and it gave me similar vibes, however this one was done a bit better (and definitely has a Beauty that is 10000% better). The characters!!!! Ugh I love them so much! I think that was my favorite part. They were all perfect because they were perfectly flawed. I freaking L O V […]

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Audiobook Review: Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I had actually attempted to pick up this book physically a while back, and wasn’t feeling it. The beginning is SO boring. But I’m so glad I tried again, and the audio was fantastic! I am trash for anything Beauty and the Beast, and this was an awesome retelling! All the feels! She reminds us of what we could be. I freaking LOVED beast’s parts!!! The narrator was AMAZING. Also, the fact that the Beast refers to himself as “we” was […]

Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Claim the stars. I had been DYING for this book, but I tried to read Mistborn and couldn’t get into it, so I was worried I wouldn’t like this one. I needn’t have worried, because I loved it!! It was such a fun and engaging read, and honestly the perfect Jessi book because 1) it’s sci-fi, 2) it’s set in space, and 3) it has tons of awesome banter! Three things that are a huge win for me! The setting […]

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

Audiobook Review: Beyond the Red by Ava Jae

I was sooo torn on this book. On one hand, I enjoyed it; but on the other, it was pretty freakin’ irritating. I’m gonna break it down by likes and dislikes because I have warring emotions! Things I liked: The world and concept – space! Aliens! Right up my alley. The world had an awesome Mars feel going for it. The nanites were cool, the races were cool, I enjoyed the whole world in general! Eros – I felt SO […]

Review: The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Review: The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

Love withstands all things. Even death. Especially death. This didn’t quite have the magic that The Last Namsara did, but I still really enjoyed it! It was a great companion novel! Don’t expect to see much of the characters you loved from the first book. Or dragons. If you can destroy that expectation before you ever go in, you’ll enjoy this one a lot more. I was pretty disappointed that there were no dragons or Asha. I loved the magic involved and […]

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

Review: This Cruel Design by Emily Suvada

There’s still hope as long as we’re alive. Okay so this one didn’t quite wow me like This Mortal Coil did, I’m afraid. I struggled a lot in the first half – I was feeling slumpy already and I wasn’t loving it like I did the first book. I was bored. So, I decided to put it down for a while. I read something else (Ship of Smoke and Steel, which I did NOT like), and the break was just […]
