I just want to preface this review by saying: I loved Good Girl’s Guide, as well as the sequel (and okay, half of the third book, but I will vehemently pretend that the last half did not happen). The audio for that one is one of my favorite audiobooks of all time! I am very sad to say that this one did not live up to that. (Neither did the audio narrator, she was not great.) The concept was interesting – […]

This was a book club pick, and something I would have never touched in a million years on my own. I have never been a fan of historical fiction and usually avoid it at all costs. So, I ended up being pleasantly surprised by this one! The audiobook was FANTASTIC! I didn’t enjoy the flashbacks a whole lot, because that’s where the historical part really shone through. I didn’t care all that much about Hazel and James or Aubrey and […]

I’m so sad that I didn’t love this one. The hype for this book is UNREAL! Everyone talks about how beautiful the writing is, but it didn’t wow me. In fact, I found this story to be somewhat dull. I loved the idea of the magic system, but the middle got pretty boring when Lark was in the castle. I didn’t care at all for the romance, either. There was zero chemistry between Lark and Tiras, and it borderlined controlling […]

Before we get into this shit show: THIS IS NOT YA. There is lots of sexual content in this book. If you want an angsty smutty romance with zero plot, LOOK NO FURTHER. WORST case of Second Book Syndrome I’ve read in as long as I can remember. This year must be all about sequels that disappointed me! This one is the worst yet, though. I think this is the single most disappointing sequel I’ve ever read. I loved the […]

WHY did I wait so long to read this?! This book was awesome! It’s been on my TBR for years, and it even popped up in my 5 star predictions one year. And I just…never read it. I suck, clearly. Because WOW this book took me by surprise! The concept is so awesome and entirely unique. Every twelve years this mysterious “Forgetting” comes around and takes away everyone’s memories? So. Cool. And they carry around books with their memories to […]

Buckle up, ladies and gents. Because I have a LOT of complaints. Firstly, I want to say that I listened to the audiobook, so some of my spellings may be off. I thought the MC was ‘Elsbeth’ for almost the whole book, until I finally looked at the synopsis; so I’m sure the other character names are probably spelled weird too lmao. Secondly, WHY DO I ALWAYS LET THE HYPE MONSTER GET ME?! WHY AM I ALWAYS A BLACK SHEEP?! […]
