ARC Review: 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston

ARC Review: 10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a fan of contemporary and I rarely read it. Actually, this was my first contemporary romance all year, oops. I needed a break from my High Fantasy rut (and reading slump) and this was just the book for it since it’s set at Christmastime! It’s not something I’d usually have looked twice at, but Disney sent me a copy a while back, and then it showed up in my suggestions when I […]

Review: Cold Falling White by G.S. Prendergast

Review: Cold Falling White by G.S. Prendergast

CAUTION: SPOILERS FOR ZERO REPEAT FOREVER Oh my gosh, why did I put off reading this book for so long?! To be honest I was kind of worried that it would have Second Book Syndrome and would disappoint me after I loved Zero Repeat Forever so freaking much. I needn’t have worried, because it was pretty much just as amazing as the first book! The first book starts off kind of slow in the beginning. This book is almost non-stop […]

ARC Review: The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

ARC Review: The Storm Crow by Kalyn Josephson

Not gonna lie, I am hella disappointed in this book. This was my most anticipated 2019 debut, and my second most anticipated non-sequel release of 2019. Perhaps my hopes were just too high, but when I heard magical, elemental crows I was STOKED to read it. What an awesome-sounding concept! And indeed it was – I loved the crows and how the different types worked: sun crows for healing, earth and storm crows for crops, fire crows, battle crows, shadow crows…it was seriously […]

ARC Review: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

ARC Review: We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

I will show him what a woman can do. In the beginning, I was enjoying it but I wasn’t engrossed. The writing was positively stunning, and I was intrigued by the world, but it wasn’t grabbing me for some reason (I blame this stupid reading slump that won’t go away). It wasn’t until Benyamin and Kifah showed up that I realized that was hopelessly hooked. Talk about squad goals!!! I freaking LOVED the banter and camaraderie that the gang – […]

ARC Review: Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

ARC Review: Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller

Despite feeling rather apathetic about Daughter of the Pirate King, I had high hopes for this one. Vikings!! Norse mythology!!! But sadly, it didn’t work for me much at all. Just like DotPK, I found the writing style to be very juvenile, and it just grated on my nerves. Plot-wise it feels generic and shallow, just like DotPK. I think maybe Tricia Levenseller is just not for me. :( I loved the concept and the world, didn’t give a crap […]

ARC Review: Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

ARC Review: Crown of Feathers by Nicki Pau Preto

I loved the concept of Phoenix Riders!! The world was truly phenomenal – well thought out and painstakingly built. It felt real! I could tell Nicki put a lot of thought into it. It was excruciatingly detailed without annoying info dumps. The info was well placed and spread throughout the whole book, giving you an in depth understanding of the world without being overwhelming. Also, I LOVE stories where a girl dresses as a boy! Sadly, that was where most of […]
