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 […]

Review: Morning Star by Pierce Brown

Review: Morning Star by Pierce Brown

We are the tide. And we are rising. While I still enjoyed this one – it’s hard not to, with the lovely prose and amazing world – I had the same problem with this one that I did with Golden Son: Yet more politics and war strategy dominating the majority of this book. There was a good chunk in the middle that was downright boring because of that. I think some of that could have been condensed and the story […]

Audiobook Review: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

Audiobook Review: Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

This book is kind of an audio review, and kind of not. I started it via audio, and finished it by reading the rest. Confession: I started this book two years ago and never finished. Not because I didn’t like it, but because my Audible app screwed up and I lost my spot in the audiobook. I had NO idea where I was at, so I just…never picked it back up again. The sad part is, I was really enjoying […]
