It takes a monster to slay a monster. Holy. Freaking. CRAP. You guys, this book absolutely BLEW me away!! I mean just wow. I don’t remember the last time I enjoyed a book this much from the opening sentence to the very last page that wasn’t written by Jay Kristoff. I wish I could bottle up the sheer fierce joy I felt while reading this delightful book! It reminded me a lot of watching Pacific Rim for the first time […]

It’s not very often that I find a book that makes me literally laugh out loud, so I genuinely cherish Shelby as an author! The wit and humor that I loved so much from the first book was still present in this one, which makes me so happy! I do think that this suffered from a bit of Second Book Syndrome. I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t quite as good as the first book. It felt like filler, to […]

DNF @ 50% (second try) I give up. I gave it a valiant effort. I really did. The first time I made it right around the 100 page mark before I gave up from boredom. But, this book has a ridiculous amount of raving reviews, so I thought I’d give the audio a shot in hopes that it’d be better. It wasn’t. I wasn’t a fan of the narrator at ALL. He was SO boring! Some of the accents and […]

Welp, first DNF of the year! This book actually started off pretty strong. In the beginning I was into it, and excited about the space aspect. I love space books! Sadly, while the concept was awesome, the delivery was pretty awful. When I saw how bad the reviews were, I was worried; but I was still hopeful, because almost all of the negative ones were audio (which apparently is very robotic, yikes) and I tend to be the black sheep […]

Okay, so I let this review go WAY too long! I don’t know why, I loved this book just like I love all of Jay’s other stuff. But for some reason, it didn’t stick with me like the first two books did. I even listened to it via audio as a re-read and STILL barely remember anything *hides* Not to say I didn’t enjoy the shit out of it – I definitely did! As always, Jay grabs you by the […]

“We hunted the flame together, found the light in the darkness, but we are far from done, laa? Now we unleash it. We free the stars, shatter the darkness holding us captive, and return the world to the splendor it once was.” What a beautiful ending to an amazing duology! If you haven’t read We Hunt the Flame yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR. Hafsah’s storytelling is simply stunning! Lush and magical world, unique and fleshed out characters, action-packed plot. […]
