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 […]

Review: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

In that moment, Blue was a little in love with all of them. Their magic. Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness. Her raven boys. Okay first of all, I cannot believe I waited so long to read this series! I’m really surprised by how much I’m enjoying it. I didn’t expect that! Can we please just talk about how FREAKING EPIC dream thieving is?! I loved that so much it’s not even funny. It’s quite possibly the coolest idea ever, and […]

Review: Ruined by Amy Tintera

Review: Ruined by Amy Tintera

Good freaking lord, am I the ONLY person who didn’t like this book? I don’t understand the hype this book has. It was like Red Queen and Snow Like Ashes all over again. This book was SO generic. It was not memorable at all and doesn’t stand out in the sea of other High Fantasy books.  Actually, as far as HF goes, this one was a terrible one. There’s so many other, better HFs out there! There was NO world building in this […]
