Review: Titans by Victoria Scott

Review: Titans by Victoria Scott

When I first saw the synopsis of this book, my first thought was: Horses? Mechanical horses?! YES PLEASE. It sounded awesome. I was sure it would be awesome. I was not wrong! I love Astrid and Magnolia’s relationship! I love seeing girl friendships that are pure and not catty. I feel like it’s so rare in YA anymore. Astrid and Magnolia supported each other and took care of each other. They were always there for one another, no matter what. It […]

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

STUFF HAPPENS, MAN. It’s finally happening! And it’s getting intense! I’m beyond excited to see where the search for Glendower goes. I feel the conclusion drawing nearer and I feel excited and anxious all at the same time. I want them to find Glendower. I don’t want it to end. I JUST WANT GANSEY TO LIVE. I love this series so much. Maggie’s writing is so beautiful, there’s so many feels and quotable passages! It’s also got plenty of humor […]

DNF Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

DNF Review: And I Darken by Kiersten White

This book was SO boring I just couldn’t bring myself to finish. It’s sad, because I usually really enjoy Kiersten White’s books. I’m not sure if it was because it’s Historical (which I’m pretty picky about on the very rare occasion I do pick it up), because I just wasn’t in the mood to read it (I’m going to be honest, my brain is in Raven Cycle mode at the moment), or because it simply isn’t for me (most likely, tbh). I made […]

Review: The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

Review: The King Slayer by Virginia Boecker

While I didn’t quite enjoy this as much as the first book, it was still an enjoyable story! I love the world that Boecker has created, full of magic and deception. I love the magic in this book, despite the fact that it left me wanting more. I did quite enjoy the deception at the end and the final part of the plan. It all came to a good conclusion with a nice clean, tied-up ending. No loose ends here! […]

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

Review: Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton

I liked what life felt like with him in the desert. Like we were equals. Like we fit together. Too tangled to pull apart so easily. This book has a very western/Arabian feel to it – it’s kind of like Walk on Earth a Stranger meets The Fire Wish. (Loved WoEaS, didn’t care for FW.) I lovelovelove the girl-disguised-as-a-boy stories! This book wasn’t really Historical, but kind of had that feel to it when it came to women’s rights. Life is […]

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Review: This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

Victoria Schwab is such a pro at writing interesting and unique stories! This one was brilliant, and unlike anything I’ve ever read before. I loved the concept so much! In North City, Harker and his monsters. In South City, Flynn and his humans. I had a little trouble grasping the sides of the city at first. I was confused because our main character, August, as well as his brother and sister (who were monsters too), was on Flynn’s side and […]
