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 […]

Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Review: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Oh my gosh, how do I even put it into words? I guess I’ll start with a confession. I tried to read this book almost 4 years ago, either before it came out or right after (I’m pretty sure I had a review copy from NetGalley). I read maybe two chapters and just…quit. And never picked it back up again. Now that I’ve finished it, I’m asking myself: WHY?! I put off reading it for years because I was afraid I […]

ARC Review: My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows, & Cynthia Hand

ARC Review: My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows, & Cynthia Hand

I’m not one for Historical, or for romance for that matter, but this was such a cute and fun story! Even though it’s outside of my genre comfort zone, I knew when I saw that these three ladies were writing a book together that I had to read it. This book had a definite Princess Bride feel to it. I think if you enjoyed that movie, you will enjoy this as well! The humor had me laughing out loud many times. […]

Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Review: Firstlife by Gena Showalter

Trust no one. Question everything. This book is very difficult for me to review because I kind of have a love/hate relationship with it. I was really excited for this book. In fact, it was in the top 10 on my most anticipated releases of 2016 list. I was so sure I was going to love it, because I loved the White Rabbit Chronicles and the Intertwined trilogy. Sadly, I was disappointed. In the beginning, I had no idea what was going […]

Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys Anthology

Review: Slasher Girls and Monster Boys Anthology

This was my first experience reading an anthology all the way through. I’ve only ever picked up one other anthology before, and I think I flipped through and read the one story I wanted to read, ha. But it was pretty good! There were a few stories I loved and a few stories I didn’t like at all, so it evened out. I had trouble connecting to most of the stories due to the short length of them. That’s really […]
