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.

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 […]

ARC Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

ARC Review: A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

This is what a Beauty and the Beast retelling should be (side eyeing you, ACOTAR), and exactly what I want out of one! I recently read Hunted by Meagan Spooner and it gave me similar vibes, however this one was done a bit better (and definitely has a Beauty that is 10000% better). The characters!!!! Ugh I love them so much! I think that was my favorite part. They were all perfect because they were perfectly flawed. I freaking L O V […]
