ARC Review: Blood Circus by Camila Victoire

ARC Review: Blood Circus by Camila Victoire

This book doesn’t have anything to do with an actual circus, so don’t let the title fool you. Think brutal alien Hunger Games, with kidnapped girls! It is definitely reminiscent of Hunger Games; however, to me it still stood out on its own. I saw some complaints that it was a regurgitated story, and yes maybe that’s true for the plot (the whole brutal competition part), but I found the world itself to be very unique! First of all, I […]

I love how creepy and twisted this one was! There’s also a little mystery aspect to it, which keeps the pace moving nicely. I never knew what was going to happen next. I loved how atmospheric this book was, too. I read it for Horror October and it was the perfect vibe for Halloween! The Harrow house and the things that happened in it were super creepy! I wish I had connected to the characters better, though. I loved Bryony […]

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 […]

DNF (ARC) Review: Ashfall Legacy by Pittacus Lore

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 […]
