Review: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

Review: Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi

I’m not really sure what I was expecting with this book, honestly. I was a bit worried about it being Middle Grade, since I’ve never read MG before and I was afraid it’d be too sophomoric for me. But true to Tahereh’s writing, it was quite beautiful! The only thing really MG about this book is the characters’ ages and disposition. It wasn’t as flowery as her usual prose, but it was still on a higher level of writing than […]

Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

Review: Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige

I was super excited for this book! After reading Paige’s short story in Slasher Girls and Monster Boys, I was dying to read something else by her. I’d heard great things about this one, and it sounded like it was right up my alley. In a way, it was. But sadly I found myself a bit disappointed, somehow. I loved how twisted and disturbing this world was, and I like the twist Paige put on all of the old characters. Paige […]

Review: Soldier by Julie Kagawa

Review: Soldier by Julie Kagawa

Oh how I love anything and everything Julie writes! I have yet to find something of hers that I didn’t like, and I’m pretty sure that will never happen. IT’S JUST NOT POSSIBLE. I have to say, this series just keeps getting better and better! I love Ember’s story and the world that Julie has created. I mean, can you go wrong with dragons?! “Then, as you Americans say, the shit is about to hit the fan.” I loved Jade! […]

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Review: Vicarious by Paula Stokes

Before I picked this book up, I was in a massive reading slump. (No seriously, I’d picked up like 5 different books in succession with no luck, I didn’t finish any of them.) Perhaps all I needed was to step outside of my genre comfort zone! I love Paula’s writing, and this one was no different. And such a cool concept, too! I loved the idea of ViSE – Vicarious Sensory Experience – basically, you can live vicariously through someone else’s […]

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

Review: Stars Above by Marissa Meyer

The Keeper I didn’t really get much out of this one, since it was stuff we already knew about, but it was kinda cool to get a bit more backstory on Scarlet’s grandma and her time spent hiding Selene’s body. Mostly it just gave us insight into how Cinder was named. Not much else I can say about it! Cinders. Embers. Ashes. Michelle hoped that whatever strength had allowed the child to survive the fire all those years ago was a […]

Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

Review: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

WARNING: This book is ADULT book. Do not make the mistake of thinking it is YA, because it is positively, unequivocally, NOT. It contains explicit sexual content, strong language, and loooots of violence. #stabstabstab Never flinch. Never fear. Never forget. Honestly, I don’t think any words I could say could ever do this book justice. But I will try my best! This book absolutely BLEW. ME. AWAY. (Just like I knew it was going to.) If you didn’t already know, […]
