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, […]

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

DNF Review: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I’m beyond disappointed in this book. It had SO many glowing reviews, and came highly recommended from several blogging friends. I thought for sure it was going to be amazing, yet I hated what I did read of it. (I even watched the movie and wasn’t impressed with that, either. The whole “children are the only ones who can save the world” is just too much for me I suppose…) I made it a little past 100 pages or so before […]

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

This was my first Rainbow Rowell book! And I have to say I do see the appeal. This book was pretty adorable! It’s pure fluff, which isn’t something I would typically pick up, but I did enjoy it. It won’t make it to my favorites, and isn’t something that will necessarily stick with me, but it was a cute and fun read. The idea is kind of creepy, but somehow it worked. It was the book version of one of […]

Review: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

Whuh. Where do I even start? Um. I have mixed feelings about the conclusion to the Raven Cycle. I loved it, but it left me wanting. Yet it was wonderful either way. “I like you an awful lot, Blue Sargent.” MORE BLUE AND GANSEY FEELS. Gahhh, I’m so glad they finally are out in the open! Happy ship, happy happy ship. *makes heart eyes* I loved every single Blue/Gansey moment so much I thought my heart would explode. MORE BLUE […]

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The Shadow Hour by Melissa Grey Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

The bird that sings at midnight from within its cage of bone will rise from blood and ashes, to greet the truth unknown While I still really enjoyed this book, it didn’t quite have the magic that The Girl at Midnight had. I gave the first book my esteemed Hail to the King Award, and it was one of my favorite books of YEAR. I suppose it’s kind of hard to top that, eh? The characters felt very real, and […]
